Western Zodiac   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

I'm giving this series a higher score because 1 - you don't see many manga with the WESTERN Zodiac as a theme (besides Fairy Tail and Saint Seiya, maybe). 2- I have a soft spot for early 00s shojo, and I like a series with a lot of screen tones.

Those trivialities aside, Zodiac PI is a cute series, somewhat akin to a shojo version of Case Closed. It's an episodic whodunnit with a supernatural flare. It might be too corny for some, but it doesn't take itself seriously and makes for a fun, light ride. Although I might disagree with Tokyopop's 'Y/Youth' rating. Y is the manga version of a 'G' rating, and in this case (people are stabbed, commit suicide, strangled, etc), the manga 'PG', in Tokyopop's case: 'T/Teen', seems more appropriate.

Zodiac P. I.   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

If you're looking for interesting mysteries, don't bother reading this one. The "cases" seem like they were an afterthought to this series, although they should be the most important element, and most of the "solutions" can be shown to make very little sense after very little thinking.

If you're more interested in some pleasantly cliché romance, though, this is a fine read. The relationship between the characters builds realistically slowly and the love interest is more believable and likeable than the multitudes of princes and/or rapists in shoujo.

It's not worth buying, but if you pick it up from the library one afternoon with nothing else to do - well, your wasted time isn't worth killing yourself over.

Avid mystery fans should not be mislead by the promise of interesting cases; most of them are fairly ordinary, and are conveniently crafted to provide an interesting backdrop for the characters to work in. The focus is on the development of Lili and Hiromi and their relationship with each other, and albeit the typical 'childhood sweethearts' idea, it was done well and was really sweet. Loved them when they were little kindergarten buttons. The use of cute astral spirits, all with extremely different personalities, added a nice little bit of variety.

The art is typical, pretty shoujo art. The chibi astral spirits are particularly well-drawn; each have distinctive hairdos and outfits. Zodiac P.I. will make a nice, fluffy read that doesn't require your brain to be switched on.

i love astrology and what not,
so that was a plus for me.
it has adorable art and the cases are a bit
shallow, but nevertheless interesting.
a little brief/short for my taste.

also, i love Andou Natsumi's artwork
in this, when in comparison to Kitchen Princess.

It's an okay manga, I guess, but if you were to rank this among other shoujo/mystery manga out there, it isn't the best. The story and the cases involved are so-so. The only thing that I admire is the artwork.

A very cute manga! I read this a few years ago (the volumes have been completely released in English, find and read/buy them at your local bookstore xD). Very cute. Lili uses astral spirits that are released from her ring depending on which zodiac (airies, capricorn, leo, etc.) the suspects/victims of her case are. These little spirits appear as chibis and are simply adorable!! They also show evidence about the mysteries Lili attempts to solve.
