The Eccentric Family (有頂天家族, Uchōten Kazoku) is a Japanese comedy-drama novel written by Tomihiko Morimi, originally published by Gentosha in 2007, with a sequel published in 2015. A manga adaptation of the first novel, illustrated by Yu Okada, with character designs by Kōji Kumeta, was serialized in Gentosha's Comic Birz magazine from the June 2013 to May 2015 issues. Gentosha published 4 tankōbon volumes from September 24, 2013, to June 24, 2015. An anime television series adaptation based on the first book aired from July 7 to September 29, 2013 and was simulcast by Crunchyroll. A second season based on the second book aired from April 9 to June 25, 2017.


In modern-day Kyoto, humans live in the city while tanuki roam the earth and tengu roam the sky. The story surrounds a family of tanuki, the Shimogamo family. They have the ability to transform into anything they wish, even into normal members of human society or any animate/inanimate object. The third son, Yasaburō, enjoys his bustling daily life who often visits Professor Akadama, a tengu and his teacher. Through Akadama, Yasaburō is acquainted with Benten, a human woman whom Akadama taught to fly like a tengu. As the story unfolds, the members of the Shimogamo family are still dealing with the foggy past that surrounds their father's untimely death prior to the series's start. To complicate matters, Benten is a member of a social group called the Friday Fellows, people who enjoy a meal of tanuki hot pot at the end of the year. The Shimogamo family must balance between living carelessly, maintaining relationships among other tanuki families, and not getting put into a hot pot by the Friday Fellows.
