An ordinary high school girl, Lin Seonu, unknown even to herself is actually a woman saint holding ancient power called the "Jade of Bango." On her seventeenth birthday, she obtained the power to see ghosts, and every morning after that she goes to school accompanied by the harmless and lovely ghosts.

One day, however, Lin has an abnormal dream, and that evening, she encounters a terrible evil spirit. Shivering in horror, she is rescued in the nick of time by a handsome man she had seen in a dream. He frees the ridiculous power that had been concealed in her. He says that his name is In Mu, and that he is her fiance.

the three chaps that are on the net were really good and tokyo pop only has the first vol, so has the later vol's become an enigma? I guess the people before me were able to get the raws direct from Korea, lucky. hope fully tokyo pop will come out with more or some one picks this up we can only hope.

I've read up to volume 5, and I can definitely say this series is awesome.

The humor is on par, and the characters rock . I nearly just passed by this series because I wasn't too fond of the cover art. When I read it, however, I discovered how good the art is.

For a manhwa, or even manga, this series is refreshing and fun. I hope to be reading more, and hope others will enjoy it as much as I have.

(After reading up to volume 13): There is a HUGE twist that occurs, which makes the series less light-hearted. Still, the story and art are still top-notch. The only main gripe is the darker tone of it. However, I realize there was a reason for certain characters to have been "evil" or "antagonistic" in the beginning of the series. I won't give away the plot, however. Just read/buy it.

just because it's written by a male doesn't automatically make it shounen. just because it's written by a female doesn't automatically make it shoujo. amano akira is female yet she made reborn which is shounen.

Agreeing with the comment by sleet, the way the evil spirit was drawn and the boy's clothes seemed like shounen. However this is shoujo. I prefer shounen most the time, but sleet's right that we can't always judge by genre. Because it had that shounen action element in this manga, I liked how it was going and the art is amazing. It's worth reading though it's releases are slow.

It's Kinda Like Samurai Champloo (shojo style)

I've read chapters 1 through 3, and after all this time I'm still waiting for more! While my first interest was "manga", "manhwa" (korean) is my priority these days because it's new (to me), has great art, & addictive storylines.

This book is great on all aspects. Nice main character you won't hate (hopefully), awesome bishounen (that's NOT yaoi), mystery and horror, great action and perspective scenes, & last but not least it has its funny jokes!

But I have to be honest, I thought this was "shounen" for obvious reasons you might notice once you start reading. Actually just by looking at the cover...

The battle scenes and all are so well-drawn and it kinda reminds me of Samurai Champloo and Bleach in many ways. Whether you're a boy or a girl, there's no need to judge by genre. This series will go excellently for both dudes and.... "dudetts"?

Give this a try, people!! You won't be disappointed, instead you'll be asking for more!! >_<
