Youkai Apato no Yuuga na Nichijou

Inaba Yuushi's parents passed away when he was in his first year of middle school, forcing him to move in with relatives. Though they did care for him, he could tell he was being a burden. After graduation he was all set to move to a high school with a dormitory, but said dorms suddenly burn down! It's tough finding lodgings as an orphaned student with little money, but Yuushi somehow manages to acquire a room in a nice old building close to the train station.

Of course there's a catch: the place is a "youkai apartment," where humans and supernatural creatures - ghosts, mononoke, oni and the like - live next door to each other. A friendly high school sophomore named Akine lives there as well, but not only is she completely unfazed by the monsters, she can even exorcise evil spirits! Looks like Yuushi's new life is going to be much stranger than he bargained for...

I really like the clean lines of the drawings, and the character design is solid. There is a huge range of characters that are available in the cast, and the revelation in chapter 3 can open up the manga to a wide range of possible plotlines as well.

I will be following this for its novelty and the art.

based on 'till chp. 18

well, I myself little confuse
there seems, a fair amount of shounen ai atmosphere in last chapter, but not go to yaoi line it seems, or you can said it about close friendship, suit you well...
also it's quite well drawing and the story quite warm fun on it

actually it's good and nice to read
not only it tell about someone who try to understand himself, he try to understand around him (yeah more yokai and not-in-world being)
and also it seems there no romance point on flag here, not yet maybe...

also 1 chapter is quite a lot page, 39 page
so 1 chapter almost contain 1 story to tell
so you don't need to wait about cliffhanger
(btw i say almost, not always) biggrin

Refreshing and interesting shounen

This shounen is refreshing and interesting for the two first volumes. The author successfully introduces a gallery of youkai portraits around a very sympathetic character. While globally funny and fast paced, the manga sometimes slows down for more psychology, or even a slight touch of sociology. Up to this point, I was very enthusiastic.

From the end of volume 2, the story becomes much less continuous. I began to feel bored in some chapters and quickly skimmed through the pages, hoping the following chapter would be better. Unfortunately, volume 4 and 5 were so bad I have no hope anymore: a very bland and tedious detective story of a ghost/curse in a high school spans on two whole volumes, with hints of harem.

The drawings are okay, and often better than most shounen manga.
