I was so thoroughly surprised when I read this manga, I was pretty iffy about it, was on the fence about the art and while supernatural is one of my favorite genres, I just wasn't too excited about the plot from the synopsis on the back cover, but to my delight, I found myself totally loving it. It's hysterical. The dialouge is awesome and had me in stitches. The art grew on me as did the characters, Hamachi charmed me with his quirky ways. I got thoroughly into it and only after I had finished the second volume did I discover, to my horror, that it's unfinished. What a let-down. One of the thing's I hate most about series and unfortunately almost makes me wish I hadn't read it to begin with. BUT! /this/ series is too good to miss out on, so even if the third volume never makes an appearance, I still recommend it. :)
