Sayoko is an incredibly kind, but solitary, young kimono-clad lady who has certain supernatural abilities. She can see ghosts, and she frees them from their places of death by agreeing to let them haunt her instead. As a result, everywhere she goes, she is followed by an army of well-meaning spirits that only she can see. Her weirdness tends to throw any normal people who would have otherwise possibly become her friends.

Inaba is a poor college student who accidentally ran over her with his bicycle, before learning that the store where he had worked had gone out of business and his boss had vanished. Sayoko was not only very understanding about the accident, she even gave him money that would help him out until he found another job! Though Inaba's no fan of the supernatural, he was so grateful that he managed to pretend Sayoko wasn't weird at all, even when she started talking to ghosts. Sayoko, unused to this sort of treatment from others, fell in love instantly. Now she's become his next door neighbor, and, with a little help from her ghosts, she's determined to try her best to win his heart!

A supernatural romantic comedy, Renai Kaidan Sayoko-san will leave you laughing one moment, laughing another moment, and laughing even more. The greatest strength of this manga is its well-written comedic moments. The story does not feel forced and flows well, although as a slice of life manga, there are not too many notable developments. This is not an issue, as the development focuses primarily on the characters and not the story or world.

Starting first with the characters, we have your generic but believable protagonist, Inaba Den. One thing I like about seinen romances is that no character is perfect, and acts in ways that are read more

tl;dr: A manga that starts off really interesting, but doesn’t do well in going beyond the initial premise. 

This manga has a core story that is pretty cute with Sayoko pursuing Inaba being the main focus. Overall the relationship development was pretty solid and I thought it ended in a pretty satisfying manner. However, I think it was most interesting at the beginning and as it went on it started getting duller up until a bit of a spike at the end. It starts off being focused around Sayako’s strangeness and bizarre antics in going after Inaba, which was really amusing at first. But this remains the central aspect of the comedy read more

So going in to this manga my initial thoughts was not that high. Mysteries girl plop up from no where and meets a boy. Sound like your standard type of romance manga. It wasn't clear for me until later that this supernatural setup and the girl Sayoko is a great mix.

The story is more or less told through varies of small encounters between Sayoko and Inaba in there daily life where Sayoko tries to get closer to Inaba through different methods. It may not sound too exciting at first, but once you get to know Sayoko better and better you will be surprised how read more

If you look up the word "underrated"in the dictionary, you will find a picture of this manga.
It looks like shoujo at first glance (even the covers, I almost did not read it because of that), but it's a sweet and funny seinen manga with romance and slice of life elements.

The story in short:
Girl meets boy, falls in love at first sight and decides to rent the neighboring apartment to stalk him together with her army of 800 ghosts that are possessing her.

You don't have to know anything else - if this summary made you interested, you should read it - now.
