In recent times, a mysterious private investigator under the name of "Spica" has been solving crimes before the police arrive, leaving only a star mark nearby to indicate her involvement. The true identity of this rising star is Lili Hoshizawa, an energetic 13-year-old girl who enjoys solving mysteries, athletic activities, and running her mother's fortune-telling business, "Fortune Teller Spica." Using her knowledge of astrology, Lili reads clients' horoscopes by day and catches criminals by night!

But Lili soon finds that her carefree, crime-solving adventures will need some more caution when her childhood friend Hiromi Oikawa returns from America and is suspicious of her and Spica. His extensive studies in criminal psychology seems to have helped him in solving mysteries—rivaling Lili's astrology and crime-solving skills. But this zodiac detective has no time to worry about a possible rival, for there are many cases and mysteries out there that she must solve in the name of the star!

Hmmm, writing a review isn't my best point. But I dont know, I just wanted to write one for it.

Zodiac P.I. is a mystery book with romance. I have to admit the mystery side of the story isn't detailed like other's.

However if you simply just anjoy the mystery genre not minding how detailed it is, ...

Ok, I keep reading reveiws around the net about this manga and how it's unrealistic and therefore somehow sub-par. And I'll concede that a few of the mystery solving explanations are a bit more Scooby Doo than CSI, but I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

Lili Hoshizawa is an astrologer that moonlights as a private investigator (Spica) who solves mysteries with her partner, love interest, and childhood friend, Hiromi Oikawa. The characters are sweet, quirky, and sympathetic.

Story: 4/10

I think that this series, first and foremost, would have benefited from being longer. There was a cute idea for the plot, but I think it could've been better executed if there was more time TO execute it. For being a mystery / detective series, the cases were all really rushed, and only extremely surface level explanations were ever given for how the crime went down.

The story was so rushed, in fact, that the skip between some panels was so jarring, and it was difficult to follow what was going on. I feel like some important contextual information was missing, just because ...
