The main characters also becomes part of a series of twists that connects past and present events.

From the same autor. Both are really good mangas with psychological aspects abouth solving kriminal cases with untypical methods.
Both have major characters who have unique eyes (or a single eye) that enable them to see supernatural creatures (ghosts in STY and fairies in HTY). They solve mysteries related to these creatures. Both have romantic elements (more subdued and relaxed in STY) and, like most detective type stories, they move from case to case.
