From Tokyopop:

Kamishina Fuuto would like to think he's a normal boy, but he is the reincarnation of the High Priest of Darashaal, a tiny Asian country that has just celebrated the inauguration of... its new high priest. Clearly, only one of them is the true priest, and unfortunately for Fuuto, it is he. As the celestial guardians come to dispose of him, they discover that he is not, as their leader Naaga says, a fake. Fuuto just wants to be normal and live a normal life, but he is constantly drawn into trouble, as he has an extremely keen spiritual sense and the ability to soothe ghosts.

A lovely journey

I really enjoyed following this guy's journey as he unwillingly, but somewhat inevitably, becomes more and more like an actual "high priest." Despite his frequent and loud complaints about being a teenager with limitless power, I could clearly see that he really cared for those around him--and sought to help them to the best of his abilities.

What is refreshing and intriguing about this manga is the boy's mental growth. By coming in contact with these animal guardians, he is forced to confront his powers and his own limits. His powers gave him access to others' griefs, tragedies, and deaths. He realizes that he cannot save everyone, and becomes more and more aware of the values of peoples' lives. This guy has doubts, and often wishes to be normal like everyone else. But he's growing, and I'm enjoying this ride as he struggle through the little steps that would amount to his eventual greatness.

P.S. I'm currently on chapter 29....I can't find any other scanlations. sad

I love this series, but I can't find it anywhere when suddenly read on wiki that this series was dropped. So sad T.T
The humor is really good, all of character have unique personality and none was annoying.
Hanuman is really cute too, I want to squeeze him x3

The one downside, is that absolutely ridiculous ending! -sigh-

The story is... well... I really don't know. That ending threw me off track, but even before that I dunno if I really did like the story or not. Feels kinda average... then again I can also see it being called deep and a great storyline, except that very last page. One thing for sure is that it's certainly worth reading.

The art is one of the best as usual. I adore Akino Matsuri-sensei's style, especially her artwork. Gorgeous.

But you know how it feels when a story finally reaches it's climax? That final boss battle just about to begin? That feeling of nervousness and excitement at it's peak? Expecting for the best ever chapter but what you come out with is absolutely 0. Yea, 0. Nothing left. ARG!~

This is an amazing series. Great story, likable characters. I personally think this is better than Petshop of Horror. The only thing I'm disappointed about is the unfinished ending. I really want to see how Fuuto vs Mahadi battle ends

good art, good story, good manga besides the fact that nothing much happens in nearly 20 chapters. You could have cut it down to 10 chapters with a very nice pace, but nevermind.
I don't mind that (more to read!!) so I'll give 10 points for now. But I really hope Tokyopop finishes all 14 books.

My favorite manga ^^
I`m not even sure why but I love everithing about it. The referances with pet shop of horrors, Souki chan, time travel, strange creatures, ....
The characters are the strongest point of the manga.
