Synopsis

Wending his way home after a bender one evening, master moocher and game programmer Keita Ibuki decides to satisfy a craving for ramen at a noodle stand. Instead of slurping soup, though, he surrenders his meal to a manic girl who, unbeknownst to Keita, is a Mototsumitama, a guardian of the coexistence equilibrium. When his new acquaintance is attacked, Keita gets caught in the crossfire and loses an arm. Awakening from the shock of his injury, Keita finds himself back in his apartment... arm intact! But just whose arm is it?! Asking the strange girl raiding his refrigerator reveals only that Keita's life has become a great deal more complicated.

Also of note is that this manga trends more towards being dark than light-hearted. It's no horror manga that just kills all the characters left and right, but there is ...

THIS ONE HAS SPOILERS, MY FRIEND.

The manga goes well until the last chapters. I think Kuroko should have stayed with Keita, for everything they went through together it seemed fair, although Akane was a childhood friend, but it is a bit of a cliché for the protagonist to stay with your childhood friend.

As for the characters, everyone develops well and they are very important for the continuation of the story, but we miss some of them, like Nam, she is very strong i think she could have helped even more. This is not really a bad point, knowing that there are extra chapters at the ...
