Okay. If you are a fan of manga/anime/tv shows that are about crime investigations dealing with supernatural events, then I highly recommend this manga to you, my friend. You will enjoy it as much I am now.
Since it's currently being published, this is going to be part 1 of my review.

Manga: Death Note
If you're looking for some detective fiction, then Death Note and Shinrei Takumo may be something to consider. Both series adapts a main character who has unnatural talents and a special gift. There is a decent amount of mystery and suspense with thrilling plot twists in both series. And at its core, we find out how twisted their story can become when certain events are connected.

Honey Bitter and Shinrei Tantei Yakumo revolves around mystery and a main protagonist with a special gift. Throughout both series, there is a dark story that is told from the backgrounds and origins of the premise. Both series adapts mystery with startling revelations and mature themes. There is also romance present (more so in Honey Bitter) that explores human relationships.

Manga: Ouroboros: Keisatsu wo Sabaku Haware ni Ari
Taking place in a modern world setting, both series adapts mystery fiction revolving around detective work. The main male protagonist has contrasting personalities but similar motivations when it comes to solving problems. They team up with other investigators in both series to tackle on difficult cases. Both series also revolves a bit around interpersonal relationships as we find out more about the main characters. Shinrei Tantei Yakumo is more noticeable for its supernatural elements while Ouroboros has more comedy. Recommended for fans of mystery fiction.

Manga: Kakuritsu Sousakan Mikoshiba Gakuto
From the same autor. Both are really good mangas with psychological aspects abouth solving kriminal cases with untypical methods.

Manga: Hakushaku to Yousei
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.
