Lets call it an interesting series.

The story starts with our poor MMC trying to get a certain job. This one being a housekeeper for a rich family. This particular family is special as the main heroine is living seperatly. The reason being she is suffering from having multiple personalities but not the normal kind of mental illness. The dead actually borrow her body which in turn which makes it look like there are multiple personalities but in reality they are in fact multiple people living inside of her. The MMC then promises to find a way to bring back only her spirit.

The series honestly was a bit underwhelming considering the praise and people asking me to read this damn thing. Its not a bad series, in fact its quite good. Just not the performance you'd expect. One of the main problem being the classic how everything just works out near the end. Its not that there isn't any explanation but the fact that the explanation is poorly done and honestly not acceptable. Its not just the ending but also other problems and how they resolve. Everyone has the perfect solution and yet practically all of them are unsatisfying. Some get the job done. But really none of them made me go like Wow. or OMG. or really any kind of emotion. This is exclusive to the unfolding aspect because this series does have emotion. and conveys it pretty well.

The emotion itself works to great effect. Characters crying, characters running, characters smiling. A lot of these simple traits are either done comedically which make me laugh or are quite enjoyable to just silently enjoy. This is really emphasized with its characters who are so likable. Especially the main duo. I actually most of the characters in the series as a whole. Even the asshole father i wouldn't actually consider to be a badly written character. My issue with him is the generic bad guy backstory at the last second to give sympathy points. It never works. If you want to write an interesting and sympathizing villain or bad guy, read Death note. The idea of watching some take several chapters to fall into darkness is much better and understandable than just 1 chapter mess.

The romance is just fantastic. Watching the MMC fall in love, watching the FMC fall in love. Dealing with the multiple dead ass spirits. All of these connections and moments that occur are such a joy to watch. There is really no problem in regards to the romance itself. Yeah its awkward to fall in love with a chick who has 2 dudes consistently riding her of course. The feeling of being unable to do anything whilst the women you love has 2 dudes inside her. One of them being her own grandfather. Definitely weird and kind of a mess. But its really due to these Awkwardness that allows for character development of both the main characters in a fluid way. The main character being mostly interested in money for example learns to be more and more compassionate, while the anxiety driven heroine learns to be more open and accepting. I also really liked the bromance and the soccer subplot. They didn't actually show the soccer match since its not a sports manga but it did give a good job on conveying that emotion. The entire friendship aspect of this series is just beautiful.

The main issue with this series is the *reveals* They are done poorly. They are multiple *twists* in this series but like only 1 i really liked the rest either were weak or felt hollow entirely. This is a major problem as these twists are supposed to keep you reading and are supposed to keep on the edge. I was never really on the edge for majority of the series. The only twist i enjoyed was the friend one. Because like i said the series does an excellent job on the bromantic relationship between the male characters. The ending was also quite... meh.

TLDR: Good romance and bromance but weak reveals and low depth. Im very much on the edge of rating this series. It had a lot of surprising and good moments but there was just nothing there really captured me. If you are someone who is sentimental especially in regards to friendship you will like this series. Quite a lot even. But if you are looking for something with more depth in a romcom this just doesn't have it despite the fun concept in the setup. 6/10 just barely missed the cut.

Character development, original plot, great pace.

I can honestly say I loved all the characters. One of the best shoujo out there.

This literally has almost everything I like in a manga I'm left stunned and amazed its a must read. Theres only like 2-3 things that bothered me(one being a little to comvinent and it felt quit forced having the bestfriend randomly like that) if I really think about it but it doesn't lower my overall enjoyment of this series. I'm a sucker for psychological, romance and supernatural genres so I'm a little bias but most of the characters experience some obvious personal growth that was either directly or indirectly casued from shizu and her "illness". The best part is that none of it felt cliche at all, at no point did I feel like I was re-reading one of the other mangas with similar themes and that's a rare occurrence atleast for me l.

Wow...this was one of the best series I have ever read. There was growth on all levels for every single character and even a great ending that tied all those loose ends. The way Tetsu learned to stand up for the ones he loved and how Shizu learned to love herself was so heart warming. I was definitely in tears at the end!!! This is a must read!
