After the body dies, the soul lives on. Many spirits progress toward the world of light, through the levels of the spirit world where they study how to improve their souls. These spirits are sometimes reincarnated into the physical world, and sometimes they are sent back as guardian spirits for other living people. Guardian spirits must protect their charges souls from the blackness that oozes up from the world of darkness below.

Riyon is a very laid-back spirit, who often skips her spirit classes to fool around. To train her further, she is sent back to the physical world as a guardian spirit. Instead of following a human from birth, she is helping a beleaguered man, the Japanese Prime Minister Kasuga Soichiro, in the last year and a half of his life. After an unexpected close call with death, Kasuga gains some unusual talents, including the ability to see Riyon. Will Riyon and Kasuga together be able to protect his battered soul?

This manga was PHENOMENAL. I can't believe there aren't any reviews yet. The story was completely unique from what I could tell. The art was a little bit sketchy but it fit the story PERFECTLY. I didn't think I'd like it because I'm more drawn to shoujo-like art. However, after about one or two chapters, I changed my mind COMPLETELY. It just adds to the story. The characters were a bit confusing and it was hard to remember who was who. However, the main characters were well thought out. I really enjoyed this manga. I would stalk the website I use day after day read more

I was drawn to this manga because of the premise. A dead girl serves as a guardian angel to the Prime Minister of Japan, who will die in less than two years and will try to do his best for his country in the time he has left. It’s interesting, original, and sparks the mind with the possibilities that open up from it. The best thing I can say for it is that it is, indeed, creative and new.

It’s also a relatively smooth read; easy to go from one chapter to the next. It doesn’t necessarily hook you into needing to know what happens, but read more

Firstly, the summary on the Hito Hitori Futari page misses the entire point of the manga, which is politics; the whole saving-the-soul thing is only a result of political actions taken by the Prime Minister on his road to denuclearisation. It's a little secondary in the plot.

So a better summary would be this:

Riyon is a soul that's been rather naughty in the Death Realm because she's been ditching Afterlife School (yes, you'll never get rid of it. Ever.) and has gotten into serious trouble because of it. So, she gets sent down as a guardian spirit to “refine” her soul and ends up with, as read more

For what it is, Hito Hitori Futari is in the upper ranks of manga I've read over the years. The main reason I would say this is for its art, some of the best shit I've seen in a while. And I don't mean in terms of cleanliness, of perfection of the lines, I'm talking about pure, simple, composition. Every single panel, especially the full page panels, create both a real sense for the action happening within the panel, as well as conveying the emotion that panel wants you to feel. The character designs, proportions and the action they've been frozen in are amazing and read more
