Everything we know about the anime Malevolent Spirits: Mononogatari

The series is produced by Bandai Namco Pictures, the animation studio affiliated with the Japanese toy and video game conglomerate. The studio is known for producing the anime adaptation of Hideaki Sorachi's sci-fi comedy Gintama and also created Birdie Wing: Golf Girls' Story, a new sports anime that premiered in April and is currently simulcast by Crunchyroll. Shiori Fujisawa draws the characters while John Kanda and XELIK compose the music. The cast includes Takeo Ōtsuka as Hyōma Kunato and Yūki Takada as Botan Nagatsuki

When spirits pass into the human world, they can possess old objects and acquire a physical form - a tsukumogami. Tsukumogami can be kind, violent, or somewhere in between, 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 is far from peaceful, as he holds a grudge that a tsukumogami has deprived him of something important. Fearing that Hyouma's brazen anger at dealing with these spirits leads to supernatural catastrophes, Hyouma's grandfather sends him to live in Kyoto with Nagatsuki Botan, an unusual young woman who actually lives with the tsukumogamis as a family! Will Hyouma be able to control his emotions when dealing with tsukumogami, or is his own spirit destined to be possessed by anger forever?
