From MangaHelpers:

After the body dies, the soul lives on. Many spirits progress toward the world of light, through the levels of the spirit world where they study how to improve their souls. These spirits are sometimes reincarnated into the physical world, and sometimes they are sent back as guardian spirits for other living people. Guardian spirits must protect their charge's souls from the blackness that oozes up from the world of darkness below.

Riyon is a very laid-back spirit, who often skips her spirit classes to fool around. To train her further, she is sent back to the physical world as a guardian spirit. Instead of following a human from birth, she is helping a beleaguered man, the Japanese Prime Minister Kasuga Soichiro, in the last year and a half of his life. After an unexpected close call with death, Kasuga gains some unusual talents, including the ability to see Riyon. Will Riyon and Kasuga together be able to protect his battered soul? [tethysdust]

Great manga, heartwarming ending, i cried

This manga is purely a work of fiction, yet by portraying crises such as the 2011 earthquake and the nuclear reactor disaster, it made things really realistic. I was a bit disturbed over how the prime minister was characterised, and at times it seemed like the author was trying to allude to people in real life, if it was his intention, it sure did a good job at reminding us of the difficulties being in the seat of political power.

The plot of afterlife and guardian spirits is very engaging and the author, Takahashi Tsutomu is very good at illustrating and developing it, as shown by his other works. But the true gem of this story is its cast of characters, and its two protags, Riyon and the Prime Minister. The emotion that they show throughout the series is worthy of an Oscar award. The only disappointing part was the antagonist, whom I felt seemed to have too little relevance in a story that was supposedly about him.

Btw, this post might seem to contradict the previous reviews. Why? Simply because Ametroid didn't even finish reading the whole series, period.

... but considering it only served as an excuse to tell a very humane story, I still gave this manga a 9.

The mangaka sure knows how to tell stories of denizens of the spirit world.

Very Seinen

The art and pacing are all very Seinen. If you've read a number of non-echii non-battle Seinen and fine it you be your thing, you will definitely like this manga.

The plot follows a spirit inline for reincarnation who gets stuck with guardian spirit duty. She has to look after the Japanese Prime Minister using her abilities as a guardian spirit. The manga throws in some twists and an antagonist to not only the Prime Minister but the guardian spirit as well.

It's a solid Seinen manga, but it's not the type of manga that really grabs you (with either plot or characters). If Seinen manga like Dorohedoro or Freesia]/Jormungand(Minus the violence/action) are up your ally I'd say you should check this manga out.
