Description
At the beginning of the 20th century American Doctor, Duncan MacDonald, engaged in a series of unethical experiments. Those experiments concluded that should one suffer a death not ordained by fate the human body lightened by an average of 30 grams, the weight of a man's soul stone.

Today, two men, Sakarai and Amano, are in the hunt to find people who are about to die before their time and either prevent their unnatural death or recover these stones, "Livingstones."

I found this series very strange, and Iím not sure why I liked it but I did. Sakarai and Amano work for some sort of organization or something. Sakarai can touch livingstones and see their past lives. While Amano who is soulless does the clean up of negative energy where people die. They both usually appear when someone is about to suicide or places where people die so that they can gather both intact and or broken livingstones. Livingstones are the souls of humans. Souls can live up to 5000 years, and itís their job to see if they live up to their potential and gather up unharmed souls prior to the suicide. If they get permission for the souls, they will handle the personís death.

The plot is very unique, and thereís a lot that isnít explained yet. For example, who do they exactly work for? What happens to the Livingstones? Who created Amano and others like him? How is that every soulís choices be in a computer database? Itís all interesting. The artwork is ok for the genre as well. Sakurai is the strait laced business man to Amanoís rude half assed personality.

I think this manga has potential. It has an interesting outline and it isn't too dramatic and depressing, in fact, I find this manga funny (hence the comedy label). I like each character so far, Amano's remarks and Sakurai's reactions to it are priceless. x3
