Description
From Selene Scans:

Murakami and Nakabayashi are just policemen trying to do their jobs. When there is a bomb explosion inside Shuei Primary School, they are asked to do their jobs as policemen and check out the lead. It turns out a doctor from a mental institution called in to warn about the explosion immediately before the bomb went off. And so begins their association with the nameless mental patient whom they would eventually call "Maki."
For some reason, Maki can "speak" with spirits. There are spirits all around us, and Maki can communicate with them. These spirits tell Maki about deep dark things... things that go on when no one else is looking...

Humorous

It's different, not something you'd expect. The romance part of it is like Ouran Host Club with a blunt, clueless girl and an overprotective guy. Overall, I found it quite humorous with a sweet ending.

Too short but nice ending

This series could have gone many places, too bad it was too short for the characters to fully grow on you. But in exchange, you get a nice and heartfelt ending.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
The ending was like.. Huh? Because they were talking about the doppelganger or whatever the word is and about that guy who tore his heart out and his copy. Then all of a sudden, the marriage proposal and thats it? Huh? o_O The series is truely confusing. T_T

Great story, great art.
Sometimes funny, but overall quite sad story.
The idea about Maki's real background is very good.

My 2 Cents

I really love the artwork and charcter design; all the characters are done nicely especially the girls. The story starts nice but its not something you should be reading for a hardcore complex storyline. More of an easy short story with nice art and a mediocre storyline.

Starts out nicely but the ending is rather bland. Its shortness is actually a positive aspect.

It had a promising start, but the rest of the series just blew me (not away).
