Sakura Mamiya is a high school girl with the ability to see ghosts, but it isn’t quite as exciting as it sounds. Instead it just proves to be a constant annoyance, especially as she gets older. Then she meets Rinne Rokudo, a guy who sometimes sits next to her in class and, oddly enough, can’t always be seen by the other classmates. It turns out he’s part Shinigami, and he’s about to make Sakura’s spirit-seeing ability a whole lot more interesting.

Since Rinne doesn’t have the power of a full Shinigami, he could use a little help moving ghosts from our plane to the wheel of reincarnation. Will Sakura end up helping or hindering his Shinigami duties? And is there something more developing under the surface of this spooky new relationship?
