Description
From Fateful Encounters:

Based on novel by Kaminaga Manabu. Shinrei Tantei Yakumo, aka psychic detective yakumo, tells a story about a college student, Saitou Yakumo who is born with different eye colors. His red left eye gives him a special ability to see ghosts and spirits. He believes ghosts and spirits are bound to earth because of a certain 'cause,' and simply eliminating that 'cause' will let those spirits rest in peace. Being asked for help by Ozawa Haruka, they begin the investigation together.

Two versions  
by Green Mylle

I honestly love this version more, short but good.
Characterization and flow wise...this one wins for me (I don't give a damn if Yakumo was drawn hotter in the other one). Too bad it only has two volumes and the other version isn't my taste (Became too dramatic and the Haruka there annoys the hell out of me).

I really wish this was longer. I guess it's time to read the novel.

It was nice read. Art is pretty good, story is very light, doesn't have enough punch. I was expecting something like Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service. Still it seems a sincere effort without any over-the-top annoying elements. A good manga for someone just starting reading manga.

a light reading, I like the part which talks about the humanbeing feelings. Story is not important for this short manga. Ending is good enough. No exaggeration is fine.

The art was good, the storylines were good and the development of the characters was good. The shortness of the series meant that the plot didn't drag like some longer mangas. Overall a good read that I would recommend.

Very Short, But Good Manga

Basic premise:
Cynical student helps a bright cheerful girl with a kind heart figure out what has happened to her friends in trouble.

In this, it basically comes down to 3 small arcs (each an individual detective story) with a ghost aspect in it.

Also, ignore the title - It's not psychic, it's more of a "third-eye" type of being able to see lingering spirits (or if you prefer, think of a "I see dead people Sharingan).

Overall a good manga, rated it high due to having no real faults, and also not being many of it's type. Ending is somewhat mediocre, but this series didn't go on long enough to expect for anything more.

its a good manga, very intriguing and well told..and i really like the main lead Yakumo.such a unique character.plus his interaction with the female lead is quite cute too..if only it was a romance manga..but it isnt but it beats most shoujo romance manga out there...and once ur done with this manga, you'll want more...two volumes is too short!!

Great Short Series

This is by far one of the few short series i enjoyed reading. It has depth, drama, supense, and overall great characters especially Yakumo. Only problem with it is that it was short because it would be awesome to read more.

I really like this manga, especially since it reminds me so much of Ghost Hunt. I especially love the art and characters. Yakumo is awesome (and hot). Haruka and Yakumo are a great team (and couple bigrazz)

Good read if you're into ghost stories or like the series Ghost Hunt.
