    Check out more manga and graphic novel reviews @ Perspective of a Writer...As the second volume of a manga my rating is affected by the first volume! See my review of volume one...On her 16th birthday, orphan Himari Momochi inherits the ancestral estate she’s never seen.

    I'm really loving this series, I'm trying not to binge all of it in one go...
  • Frances
    I absolutely love the art of this manga. Aoi looks so delicate though, even with the power as the nue, in his human form he looks so...waif-like; especially around the eyes and mouth. Nevertheless, I hope that there’ll be more interaction between Himari and Aoi; and more than just the hero-damsel in distress kind that has become a pattern in the first two volumes.

    It's been a long time coming that I read the next volume in this series, and I didn't even know my local library ordered Volumes 2-5 until fairly recently (it also slipped my mind to request interlibrary loans for this series, but whatever). There was less recap this time and more plot. The end of the volume promises really exciting things to come, so I'm interested to see where this series goes next. I'm also really liking Himari, though I would...

    3.5 stars. A bit repetitive. “I want to help Aoi! How can I help Aoi? What can I do to help him?” By chapter 6 I was bored. Luckily it picked up bit of a storyline by the end so I’m willing to move on to volume 3.
  • Amanda at Nerdification Reviews
    Vol.2 was an improvement from Vol.1 -- this manga is slowly revealing more information about the characters. Now I would like to know more about them. I am enjoying the episodic stories that are coming into the plot involving the various supernatural creatures.Reminiscent of natsume yuujinchou, the morose mononokean, & mushishi <-- and what I was hoping for from this manga.
  • Jasmine
    here we have a new shinigami but it's forgotten completely until vol 4. this volume interested me most among the first 4.
  • Michelle Elizabeth
    The artwork is beautiful and the storyline is engaging. But that cliffhanger!!!!
  • Pippa
    2,5 stars? I don't know what to do with this manga series. I want to like it so badly, but somehow I just can't. It has all the elements to be an amazing series, and one that I would love so much. However, I don't know what it is exactly but I just can't seem to love it. I do however like it enough, or am stubborn enough (what you like to name it) to continue on with this. The biggest complain I have on this world is that for me, a lot of things ...
  • Derek Newman-Stille
    There are consequences when humans enter into Yokai space and start interfering with spiritual matters beyond their understanding and Himari Momochi is starting to realize that what she doesn’t know DOES hurt. It hurts the Yokai inhabitants of Momochi House and Aoi, the boy who became the protector of Momochi House and may have lost some of his humanity in the process. Himari is starting to realize that she needs to learn about Momochi House an...
  • Jessica
    3.5 starsI think the art style is what captivated me at first but I'm slowing getting into the story. The main character also isn't too much of a pushover or a weakling. A reason I don't read too much shoujo supernatural romance is because of the main female character. Their personalities just don't click with me.
  • Emma
    This series is really good! It's got some really interesting plot lines, like this one revealing that one of Himari's friends are dead. The artwork continues to be gorgeous! There's something about it that's keeping me from rating it 5 stars - I think, perhaps I don't connect with the characters as much as I do in, say, Fruits Basket, which this manga reminds me of.
  • Mary
    I think Aya just isn't the mangaka for me. I've tried her Kiss of the Rose Princess series. It started off great but then it tanked. I can see why people would like her stuff but this isn't for me.
  • Lex
    LOVE this manga! reminds me of XXXholic though with all the exorcisms and can't leave the house thingy. Though Yukihira can definitely leave the house.
  • Gabriela Paige
    This just gets more and more intriguing. I love the characters and the mysteriousness of it all.
  • Galion Public Library Teens
    Review by K.M. : "Two more questions answered and more created. This author knows what he's doing."
  • R
    Such an interesting story and beautiful illustrations. I love it!
  • Erika Fermin
    I had the same problemd in this volume as the 1st one. Little Story, and what story that was there was rushed. Instalove. so side character development
  • Online Eccentric Librarian
    More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog Volume 2 brings quite a bit of insight into the nature of the Momochi House as well as more background on Aoi. The Nue creates a new follower from the Ayakashi, creating even more of a handful for Himari. As with Volume 1, we have a gentle tale of a girl and a bunch of spirits, including one boy who transforms into the house's protector.Himari learns that Aoi is forever tr...
  • Cornerofmadness
    This manga has some neat ideas but doesn't quite bring it all home. Or maybe it's just skewing too young for me (and well the lead is sixteen after all). This volume does fill in a lot of the history of Momochi house and it's 'demon prince' for HImari, the rightful owner. She was supposed to be the protector of the house, a place where the veil between this world and the spirit world is thin.Instead Aoi ran into the house as a ten year old boy an...
  • Judy (Geeky Reading)
    ~3.5/5(Contains light spoilers.)Himari sees what position Aoi is really in, being stuck in the Momochi house. And she’s determined to help him, to figure out how to get him out of it.Aside from that development, we meet some new yokai, Himari gets in trouble a few times, Aoi gets sick, and then we leave off with Himari inviting over some new friends from school—a cliffhanger, because one of them is supposedly a ghost. It seems like we might b...
  • Linda Jaejoong
    Himari ist entsetzt als sie erfährt das Aoi das Haus nicht verlassen kann. Sie macht es zu ihrer Mission Aoi von seinem Schicksal zu befreien, doch möchte Aoi das überhaupt? Auch lernen wir 2 neue Figuren kennen, wobei die eine ruhig wegbleiben kann. Band 2 endet wie Band 1 mit einem Cliffhanger und diesmal mit einem richtigen gemeinen.Ich kann nie genug von Ise und Yukari bekommen, die beiden sind einfach so toll. Ich hoffe wir sehen bald auc...
  • Rod Brown
    I was three quarters of the way through this very bland book and was certain I'd not be reading volume three. But then the final chapter of the book has the heroine transferring into a new school close to the haunted house she inherited. When some of her new classmates follow her home, at first it all plays comedically with some silly cross-dressing and such, but then there is a dramatic twist and it is revealed that one of the classmates has a s...
  • Isis
    Is it weird that I'm jealous of a fictional character?Maybe.Do I care that it's true?Nope.I feel for poor Aoi, having been trapped since he was ten years old by himself in a house filled with demons... No one to talk to (at least those first days/weeks) and not being able to go out. I'm really glad that everyone in that house cares for him so deeply as to constantly look out for him and ensure that he is safe. Plus he has Himari now too...Still, ...
  • Kate
    I want to like this series much more than I do, but everything just feels off about it. The story, which I feel should intrigue me, doesn't it. Instead it feels forced and even rushed in development of its characters, all of whom I don't feel any connection to. The art is lovely, but I don't like it for some reason. The second volume is an improvement upon the first, so I'll still follow the series for now.
  • sucker4synth
    Once Himari gets back in school I can't wait for her to leave. Can't we just have a haunted house story without also having the seemingly obligatory "OH YES AND LET'S BE FRIENDS" story line? But then her new school friends come home with her and spookiness happens! And hilarity. Loving this series!
  • Summer
    1.5 Stars, Completed December 5, 2016(Full manga series review can be found under Volume 1.)
  • Kelly
    Quickly sank into a big pool of 'MEH'. Even though I read it last night, I honestly can only remember about a quarter of what happened. If nearly everything about a series isn't memorable, time to discontinue.
  • Anthonia
    This second volume has some real detail in it. Loved the situations and the characters. A must read for manga lovers everywhere.
  • Victoria
    Is a great book to read
