The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window

Shy bookstore clerk Kosuke Mikado has the ability to see ghosts and spirits, an ability he wishes he didn’t have, since what he sees usually terrifies him. Rihito Hiyakawa, an exorcist whose supernatural powers are as strong as his social graces are weak, doesn’t seem to fear anything, mortal or otherwise. When this odd couple gets together to solve the bizarre cases that come their way, their work methods may not be entirely safe for work!

I am updating my review! It might be lengthy but at least that tells you how much i care about this manga! A few things i dont like about it first: the sorta sex joke slap stick thing that was going on, it wasnt like clearly a sex joke but there was really no reason to have excorcism be horny sorta. Thank god it was really mild! That's a good thing! Another thing: I'm not sure if it was the translation but some things didn't make sense to me, or it was quite confusing. Never enough to not be fun, but i couldn't really understand who was speaking sometimes or what the point was when people were speaking - maybe that's just because i'm a bit clueless. Some points i really like about this manga: WOW there are A LOT! I came here thinking it was gonna be the classic ghost gore horror but the more i read, the more i felt concerned and scared for the main protagonist and what was gonna happen to him. To me, it became more a psychological thriller than a horror because one character really chilled me. I was scared to read and see him really, i thought he was scummy and a manipulative person who didn't care about using the protag as a tool. I'm sure that's intentional, to get the reader to fear him and it really worked! (Though some comments i've seen about the scary dude disagree, calling him: daddy or hot. Seriously... go to therapy...) The art! It was different to others in my opinion, not once did i look at a panel and think: wow that was lazy/bad. I loved every single panel. I think how the characters are drawn perfectly portrays how terrifying or lovable they are. Some expressions are priceless or spine chilling really! I just love the art!The story was quite confusing at first, but just like Kosuke, we learn gradually more about the world. I think it's a bit of a "found family" story which is always amazing. The story kept me hooked even when i was scared to read on because of that scary dude. I really like how it ended! I loved how every character overcame their fear if they had one and I LOVE Erika and her older brother yakuza dude! Their relationship was so wholesome! Also! For those put off by the BL tag, this manga is hardly that in my opinion. Sure the two protags do act very intimate in the guise that they say stuff maybe you wouldn't say to your friends however, not once was it like: Oh maybe i like him! Maybe i should kiss him! Or that stuff, which is good because i'm tired of the whole shy blush thing that happens in a lot of romance. I really like how this could be read as love or friendship. Please read this manga, even if you are put off by that tag. It is more of finding a family and overcoming ghosts and your past than fetishisation of gay men or the usually inaccurate portrayal of them. However, the comments i've seen online do not think the same, and would rather they kiss than open up in a healthy way. Regardless, i think its a beautiful, underrated story that should be given some love! If you made it here, thank you for reading my review! I like leaving reviews so let me know if there's something else i should check out! Thanks for your time!
