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!

Unlike many other stories where conclusions are arrived at, based on slip-shod evidence and presumptive guesswork(with little to no investigative work), this manga takes its' time to establish the facts and evidence to carefully nurture a story.

Highly recommended for fans of occult and supernatural.

this manga is really good. i can't seem to stop reading it. i'm not much into horror and supernatural mangas but this one got me hooked. it's more like a detective story and i can't wait for the books to catch up.

This is one of favorite manga series! The whole supernatural thing is something I find really interesting! The story is really exciting and I like the way that it's not just another boring love story. Though I don't recomend reading this story late at night... when you're home alone... and it windy and rainy outside... cause it starts getting a little scary... but then again maybe that's just me....

They should continue the series/manga smile and do a file case about Mai's parents/past and I bet its connected with Naru's family as well I bet since who knew they might have the same powers.

Even if mangas can be counted as better than anime because some of your imagination is used too unlike the anime that what you see is what it is.. in this one this doesn't apply. The anime follows the manga step by step or at least really close so the difference in story are nonexistant. But what manga misses here is sound, if not motion too. Sound effects and voices add a lot because a voice can show how a person feels at the moment and a sound effect can give you some extra scariness. Sometimes colors add too but for me its rare to like colors more than black and white. Ultimately I am giving it an 9 because I compare it with the anime. It loses 0.5 points from sound and 0.5 from lack of motion. I was thinking of cutting 2 from sound but since its a manga its kind of unorthodox to cut points for this reason I reduced it a bit. Same goes from motion I would cut 1. I love it and its not like its mentioned a detective story. It might be in the beginning but as it continues a lot.. and I mean a looot of spirits get involved. I would not put it in horror section but since there is horror in it too (sorry will not tell more details) I guess I can;t help it. This is one my top favorites the involve spirits and it resides along mushishi which I love so much. Oh and for Mushishi goes the same comments as this except the fact that mushishi manga has more stories than the anime but still it misses the magic sound effects that gives you these weird feeling along with the images. Well thats all I guess. Hope everyone will enjoy this.

I like it a very much. smile
I recomment it to everyone who like decetive stories whit mystery and a lot of scary ghost ;)

Do anyon know that it would be more volumes than 9.
Couse i really have the feeling /in the anime too/ that there is too many question open. Like whos is Naru in reality or why is Lin observing him.
I hope there will more volumes and a 2.seria too.

Though it does seem to lack the action that the anime possesses, the manga's not bad. I guess it can be a little difficult drawing utterly horrifying pictures without the loud sound affects though. I've bought up to volume 7 and it hasn't quite finished where the anime is just yet, but they're pretty interesting. I do recommend it; it's a manga suited for light reading.

Not a ghost or supernatural story. Rather it's like a Detective story. Case Closed.
Well not yet anyway. This manga I believe the group doing it is disband. So until then, three volume is the end.
