In episode one, Misaki investigates the site of a murder-suicide and finds the case is not as closed as the authorities had thought, and makes the acquaintance of a teenaged girl named Ai who was connected to the victims.
In the next episode, Ai wants to join Misaki's ghost busting crew, and falls prey to a vengeful spirit herself. We also get some insight into Misaki's childhood.
The third and fourth episodes comprise a two-part story. Misaki is hoping to get a vacation (and look into some, ah, restoration therapy) but instead gets involved in a twelve year-old murder case concerning several children whose ghosts are still haunting a construction site.
I didn't quite understand why they decided to throw the S&M angle into the story. It only turns up in one scene, and it's mainly an excuse for the heroine to show up for her spiritualist job in a sexy leather outfit. Not that I minded that or the large amount of nudity, but it didn't gel with the main plot and seemed oddly tacked on. Some people might be disappointed if they pick up this DVD for the cover art. Still, it is an enjoyable, interesting and funny show. I particularly liked the character design on Misaki. She has a unique look - attractive, but not too cute.
The complete four episodes are available in Japanese 5.1, English 5.1, or English 5.1 DTS.Read more ›
Right at the start you're greeted with the sight of Misaki, the main character and spiritual medium of the story, sitting naked in a bathhouse. The 'camera' moves around the room, showing another woman's breast, and the scene then finally ends. In the next scene, another main character is introduced, a male government worker (even after only just watching, I don't remember his name) who has to beg Misaki to help his organization solve crimes relating to spirits. But, of course, with this series seemingly needing to have more fan service and silliness than is good, it isn't long before the annoying government person slips, pulling down Misaki's dress in public. The two then have a very brief conversation about who the annoying government person works for and they go off to investigate a crime.
The 'plot' doesn't improve beyond that. Misaki helps the government, working at a S&M place to earn extra money, and she has to deal with the annoying government guy whenever there's work that needs doing - that's it. It's simplistic and won't hold the interest of anyone who goes into it expecting it to be deep, thrilling and/or scary.
As for character development, Misaki's past isn't really gone into at all.Read more ›
