Description
From Kodansha:
When she was still just a girl, Kotoko was kidnapped by yokai. These spirits made her into a powerful intermediary between the spirit and human worlds, but this power came at a price: an eye and a leg. Now, years later, she watches out for dangerous yokai while developing feelings for a young man named Kuro, who is also special: an incident with a yokai has given him healing powers. He's surprised when Kotoko asks him to team up to handle renegade yokai, preserving the thin line between reality and the supernatural.

art style is really well done, its both pretty detailed and clean the character design is nice as well.
Story wise it was not what i was expecting. the story flow pretty well but there is a lot of lengthy text to read here and there but it feel necessary to the story. It has a lot of familiar terms and themes but its pretty different from anything else ive read. the humour is not a laugh out loud to yourself while reading in a room than being embarrassed after realizing other people can hear you moment but its funny enough to soften the mood when the story get a little serious. as for the character i do like the two main heroines they are pretty interesting to watch but the MC doesnt seem unique or anything. One thing i did really like was the dialogue between the characters i found it pretty interesting. was a pretty nice read. looking forward to the next chapter

Not cliche! It just plays with tropes.

And yes, it's interesting! I've re-read up to chapter 4 at this point and I've enjoyed seeing how the elements of the story fit together.

Just because a story has cliched elements does not mean the story itself is cliche. All stories, outside of avant garde efforts, must have a foundation of familiar elements (see tvtropes.com for examples) to be understandable, but must also be creative in how they use and add to those elements. So please, if you are going to label something cliche, please consider rethinking how you use that term.

The author´s Spiral was just ok so this is a marked improvement with quality art. The early twist is good and full of potential due to the well oiled dynamic between the 2 leads. The equally long further chapters stared to become rather obvious and downright convenient but still featured some nice moments in-between the very “Shounen” tropes.
The love triangle needs work though, as the main couple´s chemistry is flimsy at best. The world building is also starting to run into problems. The world seemed big at first but the central mystery is can now be easily summed up in a few sentences. I will to continue to read on but i am not sure how interesting this manga will remain for older readers.
Update: And i am done. It´s cool that the manga isn´t episodic but the arcs barely move within the 50+ pages chapters and more that half the scenes are filler that accomplish nothing. The series also utterly lacks edge, which is fatal for a ghost/detective story. The core love story also quickly stopped being engaging in any way or move nowhere. So don´t be surprised if you also drop the book after a few volumes and the much more talented artist should have picked a better writer.

after reading chapter 1, it got me interested.
now after i'd known that the writer is the same person who wrote Spiral and Zetsuen no Tempest, i'm sold XD like his works all along ~
(tho his two works get me traumatized because of the ending. don't get me start with Spiral's ending)
i must agree that the protagonist and the heroine actually are cliched. but when they're together, it's so funny. ahahaha
i will follow this till end~!

A promising new manga by the writer of Spiral Alive

There have only been 2 chapters as of yet, but this is already pretty amazing. It's a dialogue-heavy series typical of the writer's previous works, and a great take on a romance / mystery story.

There are yokai, and other monsters from Japanese folklore, but so far my favorite parts were the protagonist's phenomenal courting of her love interest: utterly open (there's no secret crush), dogged, usually extraordinarily polite, and always amusing. Oh, and did I mention she's a confident person with a cane? She doesn't quite use it like Dr. House, but it's great nevertheless.

How do I put this... if Lucifer no Biscuit Hammer was one great mangaka's original take on a previously stale monster-of-the-week / Power Rangers formula, then so far, Kyokou Suiri is another great author's original take on stereotypical romance stories.

I highly recommend you check it out.
