Community Reviews

An interisting review.

This is a really good plot in the manga. There are also a really good action in the manga.

Moderately Interesting Short Series

This is a rather short series (only 5 volumes) that I kept expecting to pick up speed, but it never really did. Perhaps because it is short, the story seems squished into the space of 5 volumes, giving us little time to really connect with the characters or their emotional journeys.

Yurara is a teenage girl who can see ghosts and empathize with them. Mei and Yako can also see ghosts, and use fire and water respectively to get rid of them. Yurara is protected by a guardian spirit who takes over when Yurara is in danger. The guardian spirit is beautiful and has a distinct personality which is usually for more fiery than normal Yurara's meek self.

While it has an interesting plot-line, I would have liked to see it develop in a different, deeper direction. It's not a bad series, but not amazing. Yurara's guardian spirit is actually the most interesting character (in my opinion) but we never really learn that much about her. The normal Yurara is rather bland and nervous. Nevertheless, it is a pretty manga. Good for picking up when you don't want anything too heavy or thought-provoking.
