Read in July, 2010

It's been a while since I've read a straight-forward shoujo book like this. Midorikawa's art is lovely and the stories well told. The book treads on extremely familiar territory though, with the teen-who-sees-spirits-and-has-to-help-them-while-avoiding-supernatural-foes genre over-represented in translation. The most interesting thing about this story, as a shoujo manga, is the fact that it features a male lead and no romance. The lack of character development and familiar formula leave me disinclined to check out the next volume, but I don't regret reading this one.
