Haruka Ozawa's sophomore year is getting seriously scary. One of her friends is possessed, another has committed suicide and Haruka could be the next one to flunk the still-breathing test. Her only way out of this potentially lethal dead end? Yakumo Saito, an enigmatic student born with a mysterious red eye that allows him to see and communicate with the dead. But the deceased don't always desist and some killers are more than ready to kill again to keep dead men from telling any more tales. That doesn't stop Haruka's knack for digging up buried secrets, and there's even more evidence of bodies being exhumed by both Yakumo's police contact and an investigative journalist with a newly made corpse in her closet! Can this pair of anything but normal paranormal detectives solve the ultimate dead case files or will they end up in cold storage themselves?

Mixed Feelings
I have watched this show many times and always forget about it. For some reason whenever I watch, episodes are known to me but whole story is not. So I keep rewatching only to get frustrated, annoyed and disappointed again and again.

For once, story is very well done and for a change is a mystery. Had it not been for one flaw this show would be a high 8 or even a 9 for me but that flaw is so big and annoying I simply can't get over it.
