I can't believe no one else has written a review for this.

Basically, the manga is a drawn form of the novel, so if you have read the novel, you'll know what the story is about.

The art isn't very exceptional, it's the normal, everyday kind, so it's what probably caused me to downgrade the score. The character, Momo and Daniel, are not as you call it, three dimensional, however, as they pose as a very cold, even uncaring character, mundane, in fact. However, seeing as this manga series is about the characters that they meet, rather than the shinigami herself, this is easy to overlook.

Manga: Valkyrie Profile
Gods of death.
The main similarity is in the fact that most of the deaths consist of one character dying
and the friend is visited by the god right before their death and the theme is essentially similar.

Manga: Kobato.
In both series, young girls help others heal themselves. In addition, both are aided by talking animals, in one case a cat and the other a stuffed animal.
