Description
From Viz:
The business of Death is never done. Asato Tsuzuki works as a Shinigami, or "Guardian of Death," in the Ministry of Hades. It's his duty to make sure that the souls of the dead reach the afterlife, but contrary ghosts and humanity's evils keep getting in the way of a job well done. With all these problem assignments, will he ever get a bonus... or will he be stuck paying back damages for all eternity?

A ray of hope to all readers, some hiatuses (the actual plural, strange, but I looked it up...) DO END!

I'm very happy right now. .... Let's see if I remember anything, or if I can still find some volumes at the library....

Hand Injury   
Rating: N/A

Yoko Matsushita, the mangaka, suffered a hand injury; so the manga was on hiatus until it resumed serialization in September 2011.
The artwork is still amazing. I am looking forward to the new story arcs because there is much that has not been resolved i.e. Tsuzuki's complete background; Hisoka's background and his search for his own familiar and/or shinigami; and in general, the Jade Emperor's disappearance and how it effects the shinigami. I hope Matsushita will create more volumes in the future because there is so much potential.

My opinion is that Yami no is such a great story : ]
I do like it a lot. i've read it like 5 years ago in my language version.
Well, I think the manga is way better than the anime. (the anime is not bad, but i dont know if it's because it's old, the graphic and effect in the anime don't impress me)
I love the fact that this is a normal manga that just tends toward being a shonen-ai with no explicit scenes. (so I can use my own imagination to pair Suzuki with anyone i like, which of course Not Hisoka lol). Suzuki is soooooooo cute <3

I don't think the mangaka put unnessary things in it tho. I wanna know why the Baron who wear the mask shows signs of personal care for Suzuki, I'd want to see more of Hisoka's fighting ability development, and of course, i do want to know more abt Suzuki's tragic past.

The art is ok at first but started to be gorgeous in later volume.

I'm sad that even tho it've passed five years since i stopped reading it (cos there's no more volume) but it's still on Hiatus TT__TT
I've heard rumor too, like Shagami, that the mangaka is making a come-back. But that's was like last year, so why does its status in this site still on "Hiatus"? (sob)

The anime is way better than the manga. First of all, it's NOT on hiatus status. The anime is complete; second of all, the shounen-ai, the comedy, the dark pasts for our sweet sweet Tsuzuki, Hisoka, and Mr. Muraki, and the gothic theme of Heaven are all present.

Hisoka's story was complete before we knew it. Tsuzuki's past was catching up quick and Muraki's giving chase to Tsuzuki to make his corpse his own brother's. Tragic, sad, and a little bit of Muraki-you're-evil-but-let's-"do"-it spice in it. >biggrin

Unfortunately, the manga is all mumbo-jumbo'd into a book. All these unnecessary things getting in Tsuzuki's way (like the invisible guy taking a liking to our purple-eyed hero) and Hisoka journeying into the world of Spirit Beasts (Such as Byakko and Phoenix, blah blah). Anime was way better; say, I should watch it again.

So-so

I have mixed feelings about this manga because of the different genres it tries to incorporate. First of all, it's supposed to be a fantasy series. The premise of the Ministry of Hades is pretty cool but I feel like it's not exploited to the fullest because most of the time, the mysteries that Tsuzuki et al have to solve could happen is just about any detective manga. It's just not very original in this sense.

Then, sometimes, it veers off into comedy. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but in other parts of the manga it's very dark so it feels like a bad fit. The shounen-ai elements are buried veeeeery deeply, if they're even there at all, but you can tell Matsushima-sensei likes to tease. If you like BL, there are better places to find it.

Overall, this manga just feels like too much of a jumble to hold my interest.

I love this manga as much as I love the anime! Tsuzuki is so adorable and I love everyting about him.
The artwork is awesome, hot guys and very well-drawn.

Why can't the mangaka countinue drawing? This is one of the best mangas ever, in my opinion.

This series has been inactive for YEARS. Why is that? Apparently, my friend told me that the mangaka suffered a hand injury that made it very difficult for her to continue drawing. And so, it's pretty much a permanent fact that this manga won't be finished.

Pretty good although...

Pretty good in terms of plot and characterisation although it had a tendency to get overly dramatic at times. Plus, the characters tended to be rather static at times, in order to create a sense of tragedy(inaction/inability to act thus allowing the villain to have his way). Though, this too was often balanced by a sense of humor and light-heartedness, yet there wasn't always enough for my taste.

READ the Manga, but Skip the last volume!

I love this manga and the anime. Unfortunatley the manga stops abruptly in the middle of a new story line in the last volume. Actually it might be at the end of the 10th volume. It's a very interesting story line, but very frustrating to start considering that this manga has been on hiatus for years now. I definitely reccomend reading the rest of it though.... The anime follows closely with only a few minor deletions.
