Review of the series as a whole: pretty fun, and obviously compelling since I read the entire thing in one sitting. It starts out a bit strange and difficult to follow but I had a handle on what was going on by the first chapter of the second volume. I like ghost stories in general and this is kind of a ghost story, sorta, so that might account for my liking it as much as I did. I do have one strong opinion that is apparently rather unpopular: (view spoiler) ...more
Nov 08, 2014 Miss rated it it was ok
mmm alright

the trouble with this series is its' central conflict never made any sense

because yurara and her guardian were so clearly different distinct people i never understood how mei and yako could act as though either was responsible for the feelings of the other

they are visually differentiated! yako explicitly acknowledges the presence of yurara's 'other self'! WHAT ARE YOU TWO EVEN ANGSTING ABOUT?

i did like the final message about believing in yourself tho

2.5 stars

Finally achieves some power in the final volume, but follow-up series Rasetsu is still much better.

This wonderful horror/romance by Chika Shiomi comes to a perfect conclusion in the fifth volume of this series. No hints. No clues. I just promise that Ms. Shiomi has taken an enjoyably complicated story and steered it a perfect ending that should please all the fans of this manga. I'm so glad that I read Yurara! I'm so glad that Chika Shiomi wrote it!

Series Review: A very short and interesting manga Yurara is great for a quick read. The characters are funny and entertaining but the plot is unique but not very gripping. It focuses mainly on the love story. It actually is a prequel for the manga Rasetsu's Flower which is set in at a later time. Over all it is good for a quick read but not anything groundbreaking.
Kind of cheesy.

I like the idea of a short series (only 5 volumes), but I'm not sure this story worked well in that timeframe...too short, too long, I'm not really sure. Then again, maybe I just needed to reread volumes 1-4 before starting on this one. (I did scan through 3 and reread all of 4 to get back into it, but....)

This series shouldn't be over, five volumes is too short and the story suffered for it, in being too rushed and not as developed as it could have. The author really did an amazing job having us fall in love with these characters and believing in their relationships in such a short span of time. I enjoyed the entire series and am looking forward to reading more for this author!
At the end of reading this, I am no longer interested in the Yurara, the dumb girl and Mei couple. But I was fascinated by Yurara, the powerful spirit and Yako. They were tragic and beautiful and by far, much more interesting. So... I'm more interested in reading the next series. This one kinda fell flat for me.

What I liked about the final book in this series is that they didn't try to go with a very contrived ending. It ended in the best way it could for all parties without forcing a better ending because it's a teen romance. Very well done!

THIS SERIES WAS AWESOME! I loved how all the main characters had supernatural powers and all helped each other with them. For me personally, I didn't find that the love triangle wasn't as cheesy as I expected. A great series to try out!

It was cool when Yurara learned to harness her own spiritual powers. It has inspired me to try to do the same: if you are reading this, may all your evil demons be banished to the great beyond!

Fun manga series, and this is the end of it. I love when you get to the end of a book and the story is all wrapped up so you don't have to worry about finding the next one.

The whole series was ok I guess. It started out good and it was pretty funny and interesting. I did not really care for the ending though, especially for Yako.

Okay series. It was sort of a hokey ending; very quick wrap up to everything in the past 4 volumes.
