Manga Review: Muhyo & Roji’s Bureau of Supernatural Investigation

Story and art by: Yoshiyuki Nishi
By Aliraluna

Are you a victim of unwanted spirit possession? Is there a ghost you need sent up and away or down to burn for all eternity? If the answer is yes, then you need Muhyo and Roji, experts in magic law. Serving justice to evil spirits is their specialty.

Follow Muhyo, the youngest of the executors of magic law, and Roji his second clerk assistant (lowest rank) in the many adventures they will have while Roji learns more about magic law, and strange events start happening. Enjoy the first manga I read!

Article #1: Rie & Taeko: 
Rie Inoue pays a visit to tell them about “the girl on track 5” believing that the ghost is indeed a girl that pulls people’s legs and that she may have been a classmate, specifically a friend of hers and she thinks she killed her. Will both girls find redemption and know what really happened?

Article #2: Old Mrs. Kiyomi: 
Muhyo and Roji are starving but there’s no money! Just when Muhyo is eating a book this cute old lady called Kiyomi Taguchi arrives with curry and a new case. She runs a student dormitory that is now haunted. One day, the students went to tell her about a a one-eyed ghost and left because they were really scared. She needs them to come back as she promised her late husband that every Sunday she would give curry to the students because they are poor… Who’s that ghost and what does it want?

Article #3: Genius
In the middle of the night they receive a call to arrive at a mansion. Shiratori explains that at two in the morning precisely, a shadow starts playing the piano. Muhyo explains that sometimes the emotion of ‘hate’ from several people get together creating a haunt. Later on, they find the paper that has their advertisement and notice that the colors of the mark of magic laws are inverted… Was this case on purpose?

Article #4: The Present: 
A “normal” day in their lives, Muhyo gets angry because Roji was using his book and he throws a fit. Roji goes away while crying when he suddenly finds himself sitting in an old chair. He decides to give this antique to Muhyo, but things get worse. Why did Muhyo reject his present?

Article #5: Kenji, Destroyer of Signs:
In this chapter, we meet a boy (that will appear later) named Kenji who doesn't believe in ghosts and decides to throw a rock at their sign. Also, he’s going steal a seal from a temple. What will happen? Will he finally believe in ghosts?

Special One-shot: 
Kaya’s Onodera house is alive; the temperature changes and it gets worse when a man appears. She think it has to do with Nobuo, a guy that followed her everywhere and everyone called him a stalker… Is it really him? I wouldn't trust that cellphone strap.
