This is an intensely compelling murder mystery. I would say that it's somewhat similar Shinrei Tantei Yakumo or maybe Ghost Hunt, in that the main character is able to see ghosts. Ahhh I'm really on a cliffhanger!! Looking forward to how good this series can get.

The translations for the first book are a little confusing. Although it's written like the MC's dad is in an incestual same-s*x relationship with his twin brother, which initially surprised me by just how kinky this series was starting out as, this is not the case. Instead of translating the uncle as "uncle, " the translator wrote it as "second dad" or "dad, " which means something completely different in English. Be not confused! One is the dad and the other is the uncle; although they live together, it is... more>> NOT IN A ROMANTIC WAY. The nice one is the dad, and the abusive one is the uncle. There have only been heterosexual relationships in this series thus far.

The original translators left in a lot of "lo" and "la" and "hor" words at the end of sentences, which was incredibly annoying to read and nearly made me drop this series in the beginning, but this issue goes away when the translator changes at volume 2. It becomes much more readable. Many characters are named "Yu" or "Yue, " or otherwise start with a Y, especially in the first arc, which was a little confusing at first. It is much easier to follow once ~Taffy Translations~ picks up the series, so I recommend just waiting it out.

The plot is okay as far as the MC tries to solve this haunted murder mysteries. Unfortunately, the mysteries are easy to solve, and the ending for each case is not a twist. I have consistently been able to figure out the solution within a few chapters of each volume, and it's painful to wait so long for the MC to solve the case when it's so obvious. It's also irritating that he doesn't share information with the police when finds useful tips. He also repeatedly does obviously dangerous things that get him hurt, especially in the first volume.

The horror imagery is nice, and it's probably the best thing about this series. The suspense is okay but doesn't leave me craving the next chapter. Character development is minimal for everyone except the little brother. The same goes for their relationships and bonds. There's nothing particularly heart-rendering.

This series is neither thrilling nor terrible. For me, I can only consider it to be mediocre. However, many other people have posted in the chapter comments mentioning that they enjoyed it, so I would still say it's worth checking out. <<less

The moronic bots that dared to randomly give 1 star reviews to this masterpiece should all go and face my ghost after death properly! Admittedly, I was unable to read the first volume because I don't know or care about Creative Novels and their weird aggregate site. Taffy though is amazing and the story is widely intriguing. There's mystery, horror, actual character development, cool side characters, etc etc. It definitely does not deserve a mere 3.8 rating and at the very least I would read volume 2-3 to get a... more>> sense of how good it is. I did so, and even without that first volume I enjoyed myself tremendously.

Ignore the synopsis though, it's pretty inaccurate honestly. The brothers aren't really working together closely, at least not so far. Rather they're getting to know each other and we are learning more about them and their world. <<less
