Goodreads Synopsis:

Manga legend Rumiko Takahashi’s lighthearted tale of a girl who can see ghosts and a boy from the beyond.

Ever since a strange encounter when she was a child, Sakura Mamiya has had the power to see ghosts. Now in high school, she just wishes the ghosts would leave her alone! When her mysterious classmate Rinne Rokudo shows up, Sakura finds herself following him into the amazing world between life and death!

Rinne and Sakura’s homeroom teacher starts receiving some very strange messages from her fortune-telling Peeking Ball. Then a ghost scythe attaches itself to Sakura, and she must exorcise seven souls to get rid of it!


The peeking ball once again causes a strew of misunderstandings and competitions. For a few chapters, they're all fighting to get some money, which causes them to do one thing after another. Quite a bit of hilarity insues.
After that, we get a goofy ghost haunting a tree, a haunted sports uniform, and a haunted elevator. At one point, Sakura gets a scythe and tries learning how to use it.
Lots of crazy antics in this series, not much plot progression, or romance progression. It's a bit all over the place and episodic, and I actually quite enjoy it. Even though I've only read a few volumes of this series, they're fun. It's an easy reprieve.

A review copy was provided by the publisher, VIZ Media, for an honest review. Thank you so, so much!
