Goodreads Synopsis:

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

After a mysterious encounter in her childhood, Sakura Mamiya gained the power to see ghosts. Now a teenager, she just wishes the ghosts would leave her alone! Then one day she meets Rinne Rokudo, a boy who is far more than what he seems.

The haunted hijinks continue as spooky summer days turn to fall. Masato, everyone’s favorite demon, accidentally wins the favor of an angel and ends up with wings and a knack for good deeds, no matter how hard he tries to be bad! Can Rinne revert him to his normal self?


There is definitely no real story progress happening here. I'm not sure if there's really supposed to be, though. This is just fun, crazy magical antics.
We see a young boy who makes a voodoo doll of sorts, who starts causing havoc while he's asleep. A guy with an unrequited crush has a ghost following him. This witch starts haunting their teacher.
I will admit that the stories featuring craziness surrounding their teacher are probably my favorite. She's an interesting character. I like seeing Renge, too, and seeing what Rinne will do for money.
This series is fun and light and easy. Not much to say, though.

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