Akira, a second year middle school student, has a normal life on an island of solitude, a serene and peaceful school setting. Akira's daily life is shattered one day by the transfer of a mysterious boy; Matsushiro Nishigami who introduces himself as a shinigami with the phrase "Anyone who gets close to me dies." What could be the meaning of such a bizarre introduction?


Due to the author Himura Masaki's illness, Shindere Shoujo to Kodoku na Shinigami was put on an indefinite hiatus after its 20th chapter was published on March 28, 2013. Himura passed away on June 17, 2015 after more than two years of fighting cancer, leaving this and another series she's has started while being in hospital—Nyuuin Note (Hospitalization Notebook)—in an unfinished state. The last volume containing chapters 15~20 was published only in digital format on September 24.

Shindere Shoujo to Kodoku na Shinigami is a manga that can easily flip between comedy and thrilling mystery in a single panel, which often does. If you’re reading this thinking it’s going to be something lighthearted like Hyouka (which also deals with the “school mystery” genre) then you’re going to be in for a shock. One other thing I should mention first is that the author of this manga is actually too sick currently to continue writing this manga (which is said at the end of the most recent chapter, #20). The story does end the current mystery it was in but the overall plot read more

Manga: Iris Zero
Both male leads like to be alone, and have a role of smart male lead and really deductive  
reportRecommended by jour
Manga: Sekai no Hate
Both involve a girl and guy (the guy being a loner) who are trying to figure out a mystery. Both have psychological aspects and drama as well as death as a major plot point though Shindere is supernatural and has more comedy than Sekai no Hate. 
reportRecommended by Asfaria
Manga: Fukashigi Philia
Both deal with kids in school trying to figure out mysteries and both contain about the same mixture of comedy and psychological drama. Fukashigi Philia has more action though while Shindere Shoujo has more mystery, but they are still fairly similar.

Manga: Zaregoto Series
Both talk about a bunch of people who can't leave an island.
Murders occur on the island, and the main male lead is good at solving mysteries.
