Seikyou Private Academy, built on the intrigue of traditional occult myths, bears a dark past—for 60 years, it has been haunted by a ghost known as Yuuko, a young woman who mysteriously died in the basement of the old school building. With no memory of her life or death, Yuuko discreetly founds and heads the Paranormal Investigations Club in search of answers.

After a chance meeting leads Yuuko to cling to diligent freshman Teiichi Niiya, who can see the quirky ghost, they quickly grow close, and he decides to help her. Along with Kirie Kanoe, Yuuko's relative, and the oblivious second year Momoe Okonogi, they delve deep into the infamous Seven Mysteries of the storied school.

I saw the horror tag on this series and passed it up for quite some time (mainly cause horror is hard for me to get in to). After being pressured by a friend I started reading it and oh jeez; I am damn glad I did. The two main characters are what has made me read every chapter out (ch. 15 as of writing). I like Teiichi because he is kind of a non-standard male lead. He is not abnormally stupid or smart. He doesn't have any ridiculous powers or anything like that. He just can see (and appearantly touch) Yuuko, the female lead who happens to be a ghost. I love the kind of romantic feel the two share (which is being slowly developed as the story goes on).
Spoiler (highlight to view)
In chapters 13-15 many interesting developments happen. The story is now basically just short of a harem (both Yuuko and the two other female characters are interested in Teichii). It also seems that Yuuko did not really forget her past at all but more or less ignores it (out of sight, out of mind, and in this case; out of body). Seeing the second ghost which seems to be a darker mirror of Yuuko (and based on what the ghost says) has the next few chapters looking to be very interesting.
All in all, this is a great manga and I am greatly looking forward to what happens with Teiichi and Yuuko's relationship after the current plot sequence ends. Will they grow closer or farther apart? Will the other female characters turn this in to a flat out harem (please I hope not). Either way, I eagerly await the next chapter.

sends shivers down my spine

This is the first manga ever (I've read thousands) to actually send shivers down my back. To be exact, it's two scenes, the first with Yuuko's past when she was still alive in the basement, and the second when we see the face of the evil ghost in detail in chapter 13 for the first time. Neither are scary, but the first one is kind of revolting and the second REALLY creepy. Very nice effects there, *SPOILER* if you compare Yuuki's usually gentle and beautiful appearance to this mad predating form of hers *SPOILER*.

Really, I can't decide wether to give this one a 8 or 9 rating, it's too good for an eight but it somehow can't decide wether to be unique or just another (albeit very good) mystery mainstream with attached horror, which is why I won't give it a 10.

This manga is extremely solid when it deals with the ongoing mystery of Yuuko and her mysterious death, but is somewhat disappointing when the chapter doesn't have Yuuko in the spotlight. Still, the manga has been very enjoyable for the chapters I've read.

The whole plot revolves around solving the mystery of Yuuko's death in a school strangely known for its many mysteries. Another big plot point is how Yuuko shows affection to Niiya, and he does the same. Recently the club got a new member who can see Yuuko, although she is afraid of her. This new character is welcome, but really doesn't add anything to the plot, aside from the awe-inspiring chapters 5-7.

Also, another thing that the manga stabs at often is how no matter how Niiya seems to like Yuuko, and how much Yuuko seems to want Niiya, the reality is that she can't even leave the school and she's not a real "person". Granted, Yuuko is tangible and visible(only to Niiya/new girl though) but they will have to be separated from each other at some point. This can be seen in the latest chapter, where summer vacation is here and Yuuko won't be able to see Niiya unless he visits the school.

This isn't really that scary, and it's not entirely creepy. Its more mystery than horror, but it does count as horror because of the atmosphere the mangaka puts the characters in. But theres comic relief so it lightens a mood a bit.
As for chapters, the first chapter was only published as a one shot in 2008 in Gangan Powered. Then it released in Gangan joker 2009 summer and continued from then.
To be honest the story isn't extremely concrete. The story line is a bit weak at times but either way its a good manga to read. smile

Or maybe that's just me. I define a series as frightening, if it haunts me after I stop reading it. This just makes you think about it. But it's a good read with a good premise - Yuuko-san is likeable, and so is Niiya. The fact is that each chapter runs on a "mystery/rumour" about finding out which one is the real reason for Yuuko's death - which isn't surprising because that's basically the whole plot right there as outlined in the summary. It's enjoyable, especially Yuuko's affection for Niiya. Art is good, expressions are good, and backgrounds are beautiful. Go read it.

OMGGGGGGGGGGG. well, i'm the type of person who gets easily scared, so take my review with a grain of salt. soooo i read up to ch13? and like... there's something seriously messed up with that school. it has SOOO many freaking murder/ghost stories! and there is definitely something wrong with yuuko. the author has yet to tell us what is wrong, but she definitely creeps me out. i totally understand the other girl who can see her and how she's freaked out. i would be too, especially since ghosts don't stay here because they just feel like it.................. arghhhh... but ionno, it's good and it definitely gets more interesting as it goes on. it's just a little weird/creepy for my taste...

Wow. . for some reason i'm drawn into the story and the funny part is its only 5 chapters FTW!? anyway there is a plot and a somewhat mystery to it. . hope that it goes uphill rather than down, lets wait and see. . and another problem is its a bit slow. . 2 volumes after 2 years? its going to be a long wait. .

I kinda like this serie. Female Protagonist is capriciously interesting, while Male is kinda mediocore. Story has started on kinda normal way, but it escalates when chapters go forward. To this point, id say somewhere between 8-9

A Good Let-down

I had high hopes for this series after reading a strong first chapter, but I should have seen it coming when all the following chapters just proved to disappoint. Essentially, what I was so enthralled with turned out to be the axiom for a potentially good set-up: boy meets girl. And there's nothing new about that.

On the other hand, it's a boy and his imaginary girlfriend. If Maybe had followed through with that as his driving concept, this story would probably have been better. However, the fact is that she is indeed real, and can affect normal objects as if she wasn't dead kind of disappoints me.

I wasn't wrong, and I still believe I had the right foresight to see potential in this series; but everything from the execution of each chapter's story to the actual ensuing investigations are mediocre at best and lays subtlety in all the wrong places.

Granted the esthetics of the series seems to make up for its shortcomings; Maybe's art is very nice eye candy.

I'm kind of hooked after just reading the first chapter. I like a good ghost story and I like the idea of the paranormal club investigating various hauntings and monsters. Add in some romance and we've got a winner.
