It's interesting reading manga after you've seen something of the anime adaptation; I'm always surprised by how much is lost from the linework, even in the most faithful adaptations. As with the anime, the stories here are episodic, linked only by the main character, Ginko, and general setting. They are very quiet for ghost stories, but no less effective for that. My favorite chapters were "The Soft Horns" and "The Light in the Eyelids."
