Malevolent Spirits: Monogatari manga series will receive an anime adaptation by studio BN Pictures. The first trailer and the first images were also released. It introduces the main characters of the series.

Onigunsou started the supernatural fantasy manga in Miracle Jump in April 2014 before moving to Ultra Jump in January 2016.

Seven Seas licensed the manga. The company describes the story as follows:

When spirits cross over into the human world, they can possess ancient objects and take on a physical form: a tsukumogami. Tsukumogami can be gentle, violent, or somewhere in between, and so the Saenome clan peacefully helps send them back to the spirit world to avoid destruction.

Kunato Hyouma is a member of the clan, but he's... not quite so peaceful because he harbors a grudge because a tsukumogami took something important away from him. Fearing that Hyouma's unbridled anger at dealing with these spirits could lead to supernatural disasters, his grandfather sends him to Kyoto to join Nagatsuki Botan, an unusual young woman who lives with the Tsukumogami as family! Can Hyouma learn to control his emotions when dealing with tsukumogami, or is his own mind doomed to be possessed by anger forever?
