Good story yet the cheesiness is over the top

though i prefer the other version's characters to this one, i still think this version is quite good. but one thing is reaching for me. that is how the mangaka potray the police officers. one of them is definitely had experience years but clearly doesn't want to use his head and depend solely to MC to solve his cases (i mean, which one is the detective one? why is he always looks so surprised everytime MC revealed the tricks, the evidences, and the criminals, some of the evidences that leads us to the criminals don't really need MC's special ability). while the other one who is clearly new but obviously get through all the trainings on police academy yet still so scared of everything and doesn't really do anything to overcome his fear and also his loser attitude annoyed me so much (and no, i am still not buying his new characters at the new chapters, i still think him as a loser and not just because he lacks self confidence). and the newer one, the chief, i don't really like his reaction when one of his subordinate got kidnapped. it's over the top, yes i know police officers also human who had emotion but on this manga, the emotion is too dramatic. it's really hard for me to tolerate these cheesiness around the police officers while i quite like reading the story and the mystery (though it's quite predictable). not to say, i am a shoujo avid reader which is mean i am not new to cheesiness but this one really done me.

A good mystery

Simply a quality horror/mystery story mixed with a slow-paced storyline of the main character's past and current companions.
Going to be honest - most things solely revolving around horror disturb me to no end. They're just too dark and crazy for my standards, but the crafty detective work involved in this very well done. I don't have tons to compare it to, but from what I can see it's neatly package, understandable and complex enough to keep you thinking (in terms of horror, it's not too scary though). The artwork is fantastic and the main characters are pretty solid overall. I agree that the girl (haruka) isn't the strongest character (sometimes she gets in the way, but can be helpful) in terms of detective work, but her position in the story in relation to Yakumo is good enough to make her important and likable. - and yes, there is (so far) very subtle romance.

There are small parts where boredom can set in (usually in the beginning of arcs or when the main characters aren't shown for a while) but that's probably unavoidable for plot setup.. In all: it's pretty dang good :3 Go for it!

love its twist and turns. Really makes your brain think, the mysteries just get better and better. At first I could guess the ending, but it started getting more and more complicated......really love it. I got kinda confused but then I understood. Sometimes I hate how the story outsmarts me and gets me surprised but its very entertaining and fun to read. This should be a popular manga....hope there's more updates! Really want to see some advancement in relationships ....but I think the female lead..what should I say...she's kind of....I wish the author made her more useful. I don't understand how she can investigate. All she does is cause trouble and.....I kinda think of her as a tagalong. But the story is awesome smile greatly recommended.

I've been meaning to say this, but I disagree to the people who says that other than the art of this manga, it couldn't compare to the earlier version. I actually prefer the story on this one--it's much more thrilling and detailed. Somehow, it just creates this 'detective' aura that the other version seems to not have much. I should have said this earlier but I keep forgetting to write a review.

Anyway, great read. Art and story's most definitely awesome. I can't even think of anything negative on this one. Give it a try.

This is actually pretty good. I mean the characterisation its as great as the other version of this but the storyline is definitely amazing! I mean read the other version and then come to this because they're both great mangas though if the other version had kept going i think it might have been hard to create stories but it also would have been better than this version. But none-the-less read this!

Some of the stories are indeed a bit the same, but it does NOT contain the EXACT SAME THING. There are additional characters and plot points that exists in this one (I read the first one as well). It explores a lot more into the downside of having such an eye and ability.

As everyone can see, it is longer than the previous manga. The previous one is more light in terms of reading and style. This one is deeper and more dramatic.

Totally support the manga. smile If it extends further, then it would be better. Add more cases! HAHA. It has so much more potential than people think. I think it's along the lines of Conan in terms of dimensions, dynamics, and appeal.

The stories arent the same as the old version. Only the first case is similar, the next case is different from the previous manga version. This new manga version follows the novel more and while the previopus manga version covered the cases in the first volume in the novel, this new version covers the cases from Volume 2. And I like this newer version better as the artwork is more superior and the story telling is more original and more dark and sinister. Hope OMFGG continues scanlating this, as they are doing an excellent job

It's the same thing as "Shinrei Tantei Yakumo - Akai Hitomi wa Shitteiru"
same story, same characters, same development...
Though I liked the previous one, so I'll read this one too, still... even the stories are the same!!!

A manga adaption Yakumo has already been done, but it was only 2(?) volumes. I liked a lot though, so I'm happy to see it again. I hope this time it goes on longer.
The plot is as the summary says: A young man, who can see ghosts helps put them to rest. Not as boring as it sounds. The characters are nice, too.

Update: Well I guess this one is only 2 volumes as well? If that's the case I'm not sure why they made 2 manga adaptions.
