"Missing Piece"...

I also agree with the two previous comments. This series did end suddenly, and was quite short and also lacking some romance.
The art was beautiful. I'm sad that Nakajo-sensei changed her style to big-eyed and petite female characters.
Other then the story, I enjoyed the first oneshot "Dusk Is Twittering". It showed more romance than it did in the main story!
I'm not sure what to rate this, but I give this a 6.5.

I agree with the previous comment from kujika-san.
This series had much potential, but then ended abruptly.
A very open ending that made me want to pull my hair out.

I agree with everyone. It had potential, but it was definitely lacking..The story was lacking the characters were lacking and the romance was definitely lacking. I found more romance in the extras smh

Overall I found this to be OK. It wasn't dreadful. Just ok..

I forgot if I read this before but after reading it today, I liked it but just as it got interesting, it ended after 6 chapters. I thought the last 4 chapters would be good but they turned out to be one shots! How disappointing!

I like it kind of, it has a promising storyline if you like plots with espers and supernatural cases. Alas it has a very sudden ending. Nothing is really solved, neither the conflict between the families nor are all questions answered. I guess it is a similiar case to Thousand Years of Snow where the mangaka suddenly discontinued, but it is said to be completed. *geez*, and I would have given it a better rate.
