Love with a beautiful ghost -. I will never forget her.
I am Harikaro Asakura. Actually, I have been bothered by ghosts since long ago. That's why my family told me that "There is no ghost in London," therefore I came to London just in the 20th century alone. But the city is full of ghosts! I was deceived! When walking down the street cautiously, I found a girl who was dressed in a bright blue kimono. Oh, it's a ghost ... .... But, unlike usual, I just could not keep my eyes off her for some reason, even though she turned her eyes towards me.
This is encounter with a woman who will change me. The story is painted in the misty London, the tears do not stop at ecstasy, the story of an ephemeral love.
It seems like a story with light-hearted atmosphere but emotional ending as they keep meeting ghosts around and dealing with their cases together.
Thumbs up for the cover alone. Story sounds nice too
I saw the cover and was like OK, I am suggesting this one! soooo, what is it about then?
There's another book by this author with more amazing cover too
@bloodygaikotsu Thank you for posting this. When I went to search for it on Amazon Japan, I came across a series from the same line that I want : )
I think you would dig most (if not all) Media Works Bunko line.
I keep sharing some of it from time to time, but always get discouraged due to lack of enthusiasm.
Beautiful covers, touching or unique stories, combining LN-style with more variety in genres and themes. (The right balance between LN and mainstream literary novels)
It's JNC, Japan(ese) Novel Club- I think (hope) there's room for Light Novels and this type of work
JNC licensed a few non-LNs already and I suggested, at least, 10 non-LN on the forums lol
