Description
At the beginning of the 20th century, an American doctor named 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 would lighten by an average of 30 grams, which is the weight of a person's "soul stone."

Sakurai and Amano are on a hunt to find people who are about to die before their time and either prevent their unnatural deaths or recover these stones, dubbed "livingstones."

Cried like a baby in the last two chapters

This manga doesn't try to put a religious or life perspective, but just write considering a posibility and show things of life through it. Read this to think, to enjoy, or both. Think about the world with this lenses or continue keeping this as a memory.

PS: As you can guess the manga is translated somewhere else even if it doesn't appear here, to avoid possible problems I will abstain from naming the page.

I found this series very strange, and I’m 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 it’s 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 person’s death.

The plot is very unique, and there’s a lot that isn’t 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 soul’s choices be in a computer database? It’s all interesting. The artwork is ok for the genre as well. Sakurai is the strait laced business man to Amano’s 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
