Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls is an anime adaptation of the manga series of the same name produced by Studio Lerche. The series was first announced in September, 2014, when Okayado ran a series of polls asking what readers would want to see in an anime adaptation. This was followed up in March, 2014, by the announcement that a television series would begin airing on July 8th, 2015, in Japan on Tokyo MX, SUN, KBS, BS11, and AT-X. Following the completion of the television series, the series was re-released on Blu-ray featuring re-edited scenes that revealed uncensored material that could not be legally shown on daytime television 1.
The series, directed by Tatsuya Yoshihara and scripted by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu, is animated by the animation studio Lerche. The english translation of the series is conducted by Sentai Filmworks, with Kyle Jones as director, Shannon Reed as assistant director and Katelyn Barr co-writing the english script.
Sentai Filmworks released the series on Blu-ray Disc, DVD, and premium edition Blu-ray Disc/DVD combo pack on July 25. The premium edition includes a soundtrack, pin-up art book, poster, lenticular card, stickers, and bestiary art cards.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The opening theme song, titled "Saikōsoku Fall in Love", is performed by the voice actresses for Miia, Papi, Centorea, Suu, Mero, and Rachnera; and the closing song, "Hey! Smith!!", is performed by the voice actresses for Ms. Smith, Manako, Tionishia, Zombina, and Doppel.
- Episode 7 swapped these two songs, to match the theme of MON's debut in the anime.
- The anime also used the insert song "Everyday Kemomimi (Everyday Animal Ears)", with lyrics by Aiko Nakano and composed by Fruit Juice 100%, in Episode 1.
- In addition to the television anime, the MonMusume Channel on the Niconico service streams Hobo Mainichi OO! Namappoi Dōga (Almost Daily OO! Sort of Live Video), anime shorts that offer a candid look at the daily lives of each of the monster girls.
- As part of a fan event for the anime series at Asagaya Loft in Suginami, Tokyo, where the full version of episode six was to be screened (featuring the episode where Papi lays an egg), visitors were given their own Tenga Egg; a disposable male masturbation aid that comes in nine varieties. Visitors that didn't meet the age requirement received a bromide poster instead.
- The release of the NA Limited Edition boxset was so popular that Sentai Filmworks had trouble delivering all of the preorders on the prescribed date.
- The U.K. Limited Edition lacked the Pin Up Art Book, Poster, Lenticular Card, Stickers & had a different outer box art.
