Synopsis

The business of Death is never done. Asato Tsuzuki works as a Shinigami, or "Guardian of Death," in the Ministry of Hades. It's his duty to make sure that the souls of the dead reach the afterlife, but contrary ghosts and humanity's evils keep getting in the way of a job well done. With all these problem assignments, will he ever get a bonus...or will he be stuck paying back damages for all eternity?

I began reading this manga way back in high school, and although I adored it then, after years of holding it off, my opinion has changed.

I will admit that although I was a shounen-ai fangirl when I was a teenager, I have sense moved on. I still love the genre, but not as much as when I was in puberty. With that in mind, bear with me.

Characters: I begin with this because sadly this is what actually brought down the entire manga for me. The main character, Tsuzuki, is actually a huge issue for me. Although I do usually despise the "main character is a read more

Before I begin, I want to state that actually, I'm not a yaoi fangirl. I support pairings of all kinds, but I'm not by any stretch a yaoi fangirl. Though this manga does contain situations suggestive of shonen-ai, that's not really the point of this story. This manga, I think, can be enjoyed by anyone. Those that like yaoi will enjoy the subtext between the (3) main characters, but others can enjoy this manga just as much, provided they have an open mind, anyway.
So I picked this manga up because I like shinigami. I enjoy reading about shinigami and I think these stories with shinigami read more

I'm literally obsessed with this drama. I love it so much! I'm just curious of whether it ended or not. I don't think it's over based on what I read because there are still so many things they need to answer. However, I am in love with the manga series. I love Tsusuki's character. He;s such a cutie and he makes the story super funny. Also, the other characters: Tatsumi, Watari, and Hisoka are pretty funny as well. There are times when I'll reread all the funny scenes over and over again. The artwork is super beautiful and the storyline is just as beautiful. In read more

First things first, to my knowledge, this manga is NOT finished, nor is there any estimate to when it will BE finished. There was an extraordinarily long hiatus, and then there was vol 12, and now...no clue.

Moving on.

Story: 8
The story follows Asato Tsuzuki and his partner, Hisoka Kurozaki, on their investigations as a part of Enmacho as Shinigami. Each investigation is very different, though, there is often a recurring antagonist, Kazutaka Muraki. As the manga progresses, things start to become more interwoven, and more information about characters comes to light. Now, I give Story an 8 due to the fact that a lot of read more
