Ghost Hunt follows the adventures of Kazuya Shibuya, the president of the Shibuya Psychic Research Center (SPR) and Mai Taniyama, a first year high school student. The story begins during an exchange of ghost stories between Mai and her friends, who are interrupted twice: first by a mysterious "male student" and then by a fellow classmate, who warns them of how their ghost stories attract spirits.
While out walking, Mai sees the building that all the ghost stories surround and decides to go in. As she is about to touch a camera she found in the middle of the room, a man stops her and ends up injuring himself. Mai is then forced to work as a stand-in assistant for the man, an employee of the "male student," who was hired to study the "paranormal" events occurring at the school. Mai nicknames this "student" "Naru" for his narcissistic attitude. Naru owns a paranormal investigation company SPR and Mai eventually earns a part-time job at SPR after assisting with the first case. The more involved Mai becomes with Naru, the more she learns about herself and her feelings towards him.
Along with Shibuya's assistant, Lin, the SPR also finds itself assisted by various spirit mediums and exorcists.

I'm in love with this manga! I think that it's great and, honestly, wasn't expecting to get so hooked. I even just ordered the anime online and the moment it gets here, I'll watch it - repeatedly ;)! One thing that's a big surprising for me is the fact that the anime scared the heck out of me! The most frightening case is definitely "The Cursed House", but that may just be my opinion. The entire time I read this manga - and watched the anime! - I kept looking over my shoulder.

I was looking for something scary and about ghosts, demons, etc. and when read more

They both involve a guy and a girl with their friends investigating different cases, with hints of romance. The atmosphere is calm and intriguing at the same time in both. Difference - in Akuryou mysteries more involve the supernatural, unlike Koten-bu.
