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. They solve the crime short and fast, sometimes not even knowing how they could even think of that from just noticing something. If you prefer the much more detailed detective work, then I would advice you to stay away from this as you might be in for some dissapointment. However if you simply just anjoy the mystery genre not minding how detailed it is, read more

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.

First off, I love this manga series so much that I made sure to buy all the books quite fast. It helped that there are only 4 books though. Anyway, the characters are fun and actually rather entertaining, even the ones that don’t stay for very long. Lili herself is actually very cute and smart, especially when it comes to astrology but I noticed that the only thing she seems to use is a person’s sun sign. Not that that’s a bad thing, but it does throw me off slightly since I know some things about astrology.

Her friend is a bit odd though being allergic read more

Well, believe it or not, this is the first manga review I’m doing and I don’t often read that much manga, but not that this is a foreign concept to me considering I watched a lot of anime that has a manga either was released before or after the anime has even aired, although I’m told a lot that if said anime ends, just read the manga although the only time I ever did that was after watching Battle Angel Alita and I happen to like that manga more than the OVA and as for the manga I’m about to review, there was something about read more
