Synopsis

Kamishina Fuuto would like to think he's a normal boy, but he is the reincarnation of the High Priest of Darashaal, a tiny Asian country that has just celebrated the inauguration of...its new high priest. Clearly, only one of them is the true priest, and unfortunately for Fuuto, it is he. As the celestial guardians come to dispose of him they discover that he is not, as their leader Naga says, a fake. Fuuto just wants to be normal and live a normal life, but he is constantly drawn into trouble as he has an extremely keen spiritual sense and the ability to soothe ghosts.

Preliminary (41/70 eps)
Genjuu no Seiza is good. Great, even. At least when it comes to the story; the characters, on the other hand… could use some more work.

Just like in its predecessor, the art remains rich and consistent, yet not necessarily distinctive. Genjuu no Seiza even features the main character from Petshop of Horrors in some chapters (though as an episodic character), evoking a vague feeling of nostalgia.

Now for the story… Matsuri Akino did a great job on this one. The premise itself is intriguing, ...
