good at first, dropping off now

IMO this was great, until chapter 32 anyway.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
After Kagura loses her memory the manga seems to drop off. Kagura goes from being a strong female lead to becoming an unstable easily manipulated moron.

I feel that what happens in chapter 32 and the chapters following it put the manga into a 'milk it for all it is worth' style. Chapter 32 would have made an awesome ending to the manga and instead it is continued in such a way that makes you hate one of the main characters.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Kagura is slowly regaining her memory but only because she is being manipulated by some new obviously shounen-esque cliche 'stronger that the previous bad guy group bad guy group.' She also seems to be willing to risk the lives of millions so that she does not have to suffer the pain of losing a friend, even though she is aware of a potentially 'perfect ending' situation.

I really hope this series turns around and fast because it is going from good shounen to cliche/standard shounen very fast. Also considering the main character of the manga is Kensuke and not Kagura, it is kind of annoying how he has taken the back seat for almost all of the manga.

I am rating this a 5 but I will continue to follow it in hopes that the author realizes he is killing a good manga and replacing it with one that serves no other purpose but to have a spot in a weekly magazine till the end of time.

First half, or even two thirds were good. Nice pacing, good characters etc.
Last arc screws up whole picture. Yes, ending was good enough, but the plot wandered off in weird direction, pacing got thrown off and romantic sub-plot was crippled.

Well, it's over but ended was way too anti-climatic. Series started great, liked the background story, action popped off the page and few chatacters that you can take interest in but around volume 6 i wasn't feeling it anymore, like the magic disappered from the manga somehow. Well, the only thing i can't complain about is the art, loved the details the author had in the art.

In any case, i can only recommend this manga if you like exorcism of demons and the supernatural but your interest might go down.

Yo this manga is very good and i tell you, just try it.
Even though Kensuke the main is weak (NEED TO GET STRONGER....THE MANGAKA SHOULD LET HIM LEARN THIS DIMENSION CUT THING) its still a very good manga.
The Anime is also very good...(pretty art etc.) but i think they should make a anime of the actual manga that would be great

for the pinUp guy maybe below me, the 2nd girl you refer at probably( no, more like actually, i think) is Yomi, she is main protagonist at the prequel anime Ga-rei Zero, and one of main boss in the original series, then make a come back as new characters at vol 8. By now the only time you can find her cool is in the anime, i afraid.
And in the vol 9's cover, she doesnt hold a spear, that the Japan's famous Seven Blade sword.
For the manga, its true that the story pace is fast but i dont think Kagura is stupid (no offense but anyone think so should re-check their meaning for stupid). She strong both the heart and skill, how can we hate such character while Marianne Ismaril still out there ?

I tried to like this, I really did. This is my second time reading it and after 5 volumes I finally remember why I dropped it the first time. It's dull. That's it. There is literally nothing to care about in this.

Plot: The story is entirely driven by the antagonists, everyone else just sort of stands around and waits for them to do stuff. Right off the bat they're introduced as government exorcists except there's this whole conflict over people wanting to revive/control the kyuubi or whatever for some reason that's not really explained. All the conflicts are completely uninteresting and who wins is never a question of skill. It's on the level of "my rock is bigger than your rock".

Characters: MC can see ghosts, but so can all the main characters so he stops being special by chapter 2. They mention that he's from a family of swordsmen in passing and then never bring it up again. So that's the most development you'll get from him. The female lead is just really stupid. She does all sorts of things that are likely to get her killed and just gets lucky. The two of them are supposed to like each other, but I must have missed that part because I see no reason why they should. I'm the hero and you're the heroine so of course we love each other! *sigh*

Art: I HATE the artwork. The characters have no definition and the mangaka likes to do give them stupidly comedic expressions during tense or emotional moments that just comes off as lazy. All the female characters' faces look exactly the same. Seriously, how did this get published!?!

It was an interesting concept I'm kinda disappointed. But really, you can skip this one.
