Gue kurang sreg dengan terjemahannya. Banyak kata dan kalimat pengulangan. Entah mungkin karena memang penulisan aslinya seperti itu dan diterjemahkan persis dengan aslinya. Tapi yang jelas pengulangan tersebut jadi mengganggu keseluruhan pengalaman membaca.

Sementara, impresi gue untuk masing-masing kasus sebagai berikut :
1. Ruang Terlarang.
Bagian awal cukup menyeramkan, tapi kemudian proses invetigasinya terasa membosankan. Plot twistnya lumayan.

2. Kegelapan Dari Terowongan.

Maaf kubulatkan ke bawah, karena kalau ditarik ke atas, rasa-rasanya kok ngga adil sama buku-buku yang berhasil membuatku terpana dan memberi 4 bintang.

Yakumo adalah pemuda dengan sebelah mata berwarna merah yang membuatnya dapat melihat makhluk halus. Melihat penampakan gantengnya di sampul depan, aku pun tergugah untuk membeli buku ini. Ternyata ya... Yakumo itu kalau udah ngomong jadi nyebelin. Ceplas ceplos, suka nyindir dan meledek, lumayan cerewet juga. Kemampuan

This was good. I loved reading it. There's just so much expression in the characters from the readers point and the characters. I did watch the anime first but that only drew me to want to read this more.

Yakumo Saito is a young and unpredictable detective that can see dead people and talks to them. Thanks to this power and ti his cleverness, in this first "light novel" he solves three homicides and kidnapping cases, helped by friend Haruka and a police inspector.

It was a nice read, but not more: as a "light novel" it was targeted for young readers.
It also inspired a manga series with the same title.
The criminal cases are interesting and decently built, but the characters are not always well

Akhirnya, aku tahu juga kisah awal seorang Yakumo. Maklumlah, pertama kali membaca seri novel ini, aku malah langsung baca novel yang kedua Terima kasih banget buat @penerbitclover yg telah mengadakan "Giveaway Akhir Tahun" novel ini, dan memilihku menjadi pemenangnya sehingga aku bisa melengkapi koleksi Yakumoku ini

I read the English translation via BakaTsuki.

Overall series review:

Although I found that the characters weren't really all that original, I really enjoyed the story. I loved the mystery in each book and the process that the characters went through to try to solve the cases, and I especially loved Yakumo's ability.

One of the things that I personally didn't like was that the dialog that the characters spoke was really repetitive. It started to get a bit annoying after 9 volumes and I wish that the

Penggambaran karakter Yakumo di sini jauh lebih keras dan menjengkelkan, tapi sweetness-nya yg suka muncul tiba-tiba jadi lebih terasa juga. Aku jg lebih suka sosok Ozawa Haruka yang di novel ini.
Saito Isshin sudah muncul di kasus kedua, tapi tidak ada (belum??) si kecil Nao-chan. Apa memang itu hanya tambahan di versi manga/animenya ya?

Setelah membaca buku keduanya, saya dengan senang hati membaca buku pertamanya, meski sebelumnya, saya sudah menonton beberapa episode manga-nya. Sayangnya, saya justru kurang suka dengan versi manga-nya, karena durasi yang terlalu atau sebab lain, kurang tau juga.
Berbeda dari buku keduanya yang hanya mempunyai satu cerita, buku pertama seri Yakumo ini memiliki 3 cerita yang berbeda. Oke, yuk, review sekilas dari masing-masing ceritanya. Semoga terhindar dari spoiler :D

This light novel published after the manga series in my country and I already read the manga so I already knew (at least the points) the story inside this light novel. But this light novel still interesting to read and the translation of the story is pretty good too.
The story start when Haruka asking help from Yakumo to cure her friend, who suddenly ill after did courage test with her boyfriend and Haruka. Then strange accidents occurred one by one. What is the truth behind the every accident?

Beli novel ini karena sudah lama kepo, terus ternyata ada Harbolnas di Grobmart. So what's the reason to not grabbing it fast?

Yah... buku ini bagus. Cerita-ceritanya keren. Tapi aku nggak suka font-nya. Sebetulnya bakal lebih bagus kalau pakai font yang lebih kecil, namun spacing-nya dibuat agak lebar. Dan saltik di dalam buku ini lumayan banyak... cukup untuk membuat aku merasa kurang nyaman membacanya. (view spoiler)

I know this is a horror light novel right. this is suppossed to scare me right. but instead i fall in love with the male main characte! kyaaaaa, it cant be help! Saitou Yakumo is disturbingly adorable. he is blessed with a foul mouth but he is still cute somehow. i kept picturing him as Mabuchi Kou when I read this because they both are somewhat alike.

I watched the anime for this one years ago (and I am really planning on watching it again). I finally found out someone (sadly not official) was translating the novels. So I immediately dived on it and now I got them.

This book is split up in 3 files. The first one is where we will learn all about Haruka, her sister and Yakumo. And of course in true Yakumo fashion, we also got a mystery on our hands. The first one is about an abandoned building, ghost, murder and more! I must say I really loved

Yakumo was born with one red eye which he can see ghost with. He's like a modern day Sherlock who solved cases with the power of deduction and spiritual help.

*snickers* I sound way to pretentious. My original review couldn't be saved so I'm doing a less formal one now.


I love this book even though it's a horror/mystery. Not my type of book but whatever. Yakumo looks hot on the cover. This is actually hard to find because I don't think there's a translated book in the market. What I like about

[I read the English online translation at Shinrei Tantei Yakumo: Volume 1 (Baka-Tsuki.org)]

Berhubung udah pernah baca komiknya, jadi baca light novelnya skimming aja, dan ternyata isinya ga jauh beda. So, let's conclude that I'm finished reading this.

Cerita tentang seorang cowok yang heartless named Yakumo, yang bisa melihat roh lewat mata kirinya yang berwarna merah crimson. Suatu ketika, ruangan klub 'penelitian film' tempatnya tinggal didatangi oleh seorang cewek named Haruka yang minta

This is the story about Saitou Yakumo, the young man who born with red left eye, which gave him the special ability to see what other cannot -the spirit of the dead

The book is split into 3 files. For me, every files plot is so easy and boring, but the characters were amazing. I LOVE Yakumo's character a lot, he's so sarcastic. And Detective Goto too, he and Yakumo were perfect duo, and also Haruka even though she gets kidnapped every single case.

Hope case in book 2 was more interesting.

I read the Chinese version and I love the plot and male protagonist. A balanced, intriguing blend of suspense, emotions and relationships among various characters. My current favourite detective series.

already finished 100+ pages. so far boring. i dont know if it's because not translated properly to my country's language. but why is it felt like i read something made by middle schooler. so disappointing. i hope the publisher find a good translator. i heard this novel is best-seller in Japan.

I read the manga first before the novel. While there are some lines that might be lost in translation, I could feel the depth of the characters and liked them even more. Story-wise, I think it's creative and well-paced. All in all it's an enjoyable read.
