Meet Pamela, a tarot card reader who helps supernatural beings living in the human world. She'll help anyone, whether they're a love-stricken cat, a vampire spending eternal life running from his one true love, an unattractive waitress looking for the man of her dreams, or even a magician who creates a humanoid doll to serve the woman he loves. Although she is good-natured, there is a deep dark secret that she must deal with before she can move on to the next life.

The Tarot Cafe, one really good manwha, and as I can see, not really popular one. Maybe it's not really revolutional or outstanding in any way, but - for me - it was worth reading, reareading, and in the end, buying it (and of course, reading it again :> ).
If you wonder what made me so excited, the first thing is the feel that you get while reading the manwha.

Just a mess.

The tarot cafe is a story about a girl who use tarot cards, owns a cafe and is immortal. She is trying to collect beads to complete her contract. There is also significant amount of fantasy elements and the manga is set in the modern-ish world.

The manga is all over the place. The episodic stories, which last for 2 volumes before the main story starts, are boring as shit. Some of them were so bad i started laughing.
