Ghost Hunt

The decrepit building was condemned long ago, but every time the owners try to tear it down, "accidents" start to happen-people get hurt, sometimes even killed. Mai Taniyama and her classmates have heard the rumors that the creepy old high school is haunted-possibly by ghosts from the Second World War. So one rainy day they gather at the old school to tell ghost stories, hoping to attract one of the suspected spirits.

No ghosts materialize, but Mai and her friends do meet Kazuya Shibuya, the handsome young owner of Shibuya Psychic Research, who's been hired to investigate paranormal activity at the school. Also at the scene are an exorcist, a Buddhist monk, a woman who can speak with the dead, and an outspoken Shinto priestess. Surely one of them will have the talents to solve this mystery!

Good plot, chars and cases. It's a pity the ending feels a rushed, the hole last volume is just dialog which could have been given in small dosages through-out the cases but are condensed instead.
To be honest I prefer the anime over the manga for this one, I like anime more than manga but in contradiction to that statement, usually mangas are better, this one was an exception.

This manga is not for those easily frightened by the supernatural, and definitely not for those with weak hearts. Either way, read this in broad daylight.

For me, the story was pretty interesting, and the plot twist in the end really elevated the manga from "moderate" to "well-done." The lack of romance left the readers hanging, grasping for more---AND GUESS WHAT? there's a SEQUEL!

Anyways, on a more serious note, this manga has its set of flaws, but I believe it redeemed itself with the mysterious main characters and their subtle bonds. They grew closer, and the girl clearly matured... I love stories like this.

at first, i cant read this thing because the main character is too obnoxious and the male counterpart is too stereotypical cool cold guy. but as i read more and more i understand them more, and i love all the other side characters. the plot is also incredible, you can see until the last chapter everything tied together. its not just monster of the week - some throwaway actions and words you deem inconsequential, at the end you will see it paint a complete picture. the monsters are also quite scary, especially because we feel so invested to the characters we dont want anything bad to happen to them. so read it!

I had high hopes for this one because of the rating and reviews but it was too dull and boring! I keep thinking "When this is gonna get better?" At one point, I realize that it never will.

I enjoyed this series immensely due the facts that it had about ghosts and exorcisms. I often find that when I manga is mostly picture with little text or speech I end up speeding through it, but this one kept me hooked.
In my opinion it didn't get truly scary until a certain point, however some people may say that earlier cases freaked them out.
My only complaint would be

How does Oliver become Noll?

It was also annoying that the main characters did not get together, but I have read other series by the same author and Ono Fuyumi has a habit of doing that.

I borrowed this in the library but I found it super boring
I only read one volume then stopped cause I couldn't read anymore
Maybe I'm just not to romance shoujo type but I'm definitely the horror,tragedy type
Maybe it just because I only read BL anyway it's a good series but just not for me

Sometimes a Textbook

I'm not into superstitions or ghosts. However, there were consecutive pages every chapter explaining every single supernatural concept that came along. It was like reading a textbook sometimes. It got to a point where I started skipping those dialogue boxes (about 2/3 through), mostly because the information didn't come into play later, because the solution often (not always) ended up being an entirely new concept.

Secondly, I never really started caring for the support characters, because there were quite a few (not too too many), and none of them shined in any skill/emotional area. Also, they didn't build personal relationships, just a general increase in friendship between them all. (I'm not going to spoilers any romances though, so don't take my previous comment to mean there is no romance)

The art was good. I particularly like the colouring on the covers. Something about it maybe me go "Oooooooooooooh..."

The ending summed up everything well. There was one ending that could have made me rate this higher, and it did not occur. Although, it would have been uncharacteristic for the manga to take the turn I wanted it to take. The actual ending was fitting and memorable.

Basically, this manga is good. It is drawn well and the writing is good. My complaints are with the endless and sometimes useless pages of explanations. Pick it up, read a few volumes, and if you like them then I promise that the rest of it keeps the same sort of tone and style. (Although, it gets slightly darker I guess.)

i absolutely ADORE this series and love all of the characters to death, plus all the stories were interesting and creepy and compelling as well. i would really recommend this series to any supernatural mystery lover or just anyone looking for a good story.

BUT...that last volume...!! it was entirely disappointing how rushed the story was to conclude everything and try to wrap up all the loose ends and it did a horrible job at it. mai's feelings were given little respect or resolution, the whole mystery surrounding naru was unraveled at a rushed pace and under lame circumstances (ok, so NOW they force him to spill everything?). and then the mystery of the death wasn't even solved completely. i hear the novel is on an indefinite hiatus right now, thus the rushed ending to the manga, but couldn't they just put the manga on hiatus as well? blargh.

I liked the characters from this story. I enjoyed watching the main character mature. It was sweet seeing how tight-knit Mai and her group members were.

This is a manga where people from different backgrounds and religions come together to solve supernatural mysteries. I like how the author made use of the powers of every member of the group, including Mai. The ending didn't satisfy me because it left some loose ends.

Gene's murder mystery wasn't solved and we don't know who killed him. And Naru's reaction to the murder of his brother is kind of inappropriate.

But overall, it was a great story and exhilerating ride until the end.

This is story is really good and i was sad to realise the author wouldn't be putting the two characters i wanted to get together, together. I loved the first few stories they were quite scary and original but they got boring and the ending seemed to wrap up really quickly. This is one of those series i was really sad finishing because it didn't deliver -_-
