The story is very well built, and the humor actually lands more than half the time. I actually wish i could get through the story because it hooked me off the bat. The humor is a pleasant bonus as, unlike some mangas, it doesn't rely solely on puns that(face it) aren't funny in English, no matter how you try translating them. Sadly, every chapter, every fight, every side story, every other page, some character is crying/throwing a temper tantrum/just getting generally pitiful. I gave up after 50 or so chapters.

So in summary: Something bad (read more)

Since this is a fairly old manga, the idea isn't as original as some others would be, but that doesn't stop this from being one of the best ones out there! The type of animation is perfect for this because it really fits with the story and the characters and just makes everything hilarious or serious when it needs to be. And the characters! They all worked together perfectly and I'm glad for this because if they were boring, I would never want to read this. Another thing that I like about the creator is that he doesn't forget about people who have (read more)

The story was already good when I started watching the anime, before reading the manga, but after the anime ended there were many unanswered questions, after start reading the manga at the middle part, I noticed that there were some minor changes in the anime, though this, the story wasn't very altered from its predictable ending. By the manga itself, it's a great shounen-style story, with the usual quotes: "I never going to give up on my dream!" and "You never going defeat me!"; the main character tries to befriend with everyone he meet, though (read more)

This was a great series, I read it all the way through in a matter of weeks. It's got a good mix of comedy and action, and was very thoughtfully written. One thing I enjoyed about this series was the author always putting in extra pages to address the fans. Definitly worth a read!

I was looking for this manga for years and now I found it by picking one out of the blue on Manga-Access *lucky*. The story is well thought and new. It reminds me of "Shaman King" in some ways but it doesn't affect the story for me. All in all a typical Shounen >>fighting<< manga. The thing what really sticks out for me is the relationship between the different ghosts and their partners. There are quite a lot of different relationships and the one between Gash Bell and Kiyomaru is somehow the strongest and you enjoy to see how they face their enemies. (read more)
