    I just really didn't care for this at all. It's not scary enough to be a horror manga, but not funny enough to be a comedy. The back copy says it's about exorcists, but really there are few exorcisms to be had. Mostly we just read some ghost stories where the main character may or may not appear. The art was really nothing to write about, not bad but not stand out either. I will definitely not be picking up future volumes (though the publisher tries to make you by cutting off in the MIDDLE OF A I just really didn't care for this at all.

    I'm not sure why, but most of the Korean manhwa I read I don't care for. This was no exception. It's typical for the men to look like women but this was way over the top on that one. I had no idea of the gender of most of these people. I had no idea who was saying what. I had no idea what was going on. I could tell the stories were rather chilling but that's about it.

    This series is a collection of short stories, most of them based on traditional Asian tales. Because of this, some of the stories feel a little odd because they just seem to stop instead of end in a way that makes sense or has some kind of closure. I've run into this before when reading translations of Asian (particularly Chinese) legends and folk tales. I assume that this is a cultural difference, and that as a Western reader I'm not being impacted by the story the same way that a reader from t This series is a collection of short stories, most of them based on traditional Asian tales.

Fortunately, both the author and the translator provide notes at the end of each volume, which helps to give the stories some context and generally explains its original meaning.

    Baek-on exercises ghosts and Ho-yeon protects him. It's a Korean manga, which means it reads left to right. It's a weird compilation of stories that involve and don't involve the two main characters. At times it is a little confusing with the skips, but I'm enjoying learning about the Korean (and Chinese since Korea was part o f China once) ghosts and stories. I like the notes at the back of the book that explains things. An older but series. Baek-on exercises ghosts and Ho-yeon protects him. It's a Korean manga, which means it reads left to right.

    More a collection of vignettes held together by a box frame than an actual plot-driven series. Yun plays a little fast and loose with the 'historical' nature, but it's a fun read with lovely--if standard manwha-style--art.

    Meh, pretty art but that was about it. I found it a little confusing and it really didn't flow very well. Meh, pretty art but that was about it. I found it a little confusing and it really didn't flow very well.

    The drawing style is awesome but sometimes the stories can get confusing and some characters are not very distinguishable. However, it was a nice experience reading it.

    I need to re-read this series... it was amazing. Characters who were complex and yet so real and understandable... a story of two young men and the path they tread in life, dealing with ghosts and spirits... Fantastic! I must re-read it, and do a proper review, book by book. The series is WELL worth it.

    Lovely, elegant, and surprisingly simple artwork - especially for a Korean manga. The story leaves a bit to be desired, though, the chapters are more like stand alone tales than parts of a cohesive whole.

    I like that this book had a series of different stories but I found it confusing at times. The art was well drawn but many of the characters looked so much alike that I wasn't sure who was who. Overall it was an interest series of stories but I'm not sure I care to read more. I like that this book had a series of different stories but I found it confusing at times.

    3 1/2 stars. Better than MuShiShi, but not quite as good as Nightmare Inspector.

    Sometimes about the ghost hunters, sometimes it just focuses on the ghost stories. Each chapter is just a bit creepy with a touch of angst.

    Rather gothic tales. Funnily enough, reading its Western-style layout was disconcerting!
