Ghost Sweeper Mikami Manga Summary
A man and a woman are working together in their own business. Not very interesting, you say? And if they are ghost sweepers, professional exorcists exterminating evil spirits and demons? Huh, not inventive enough? Then what if the man is a total pervert, beyond hope of any salvation, and the woman is a total hottie? And there are more babes to come! What? Sounds like a standard harem manga? Ok, then let's suppose that the woman is as avaricious as the man is perverse And she knows how to use her charms to force the man into suicide missions for a starvation wage. Still missing something? Then how about a dark, hidden scheme that has been running for ages, which of course can't ignore the woman, who is one of the most powerfull ghost sweepers alive? From Baka-Updates: Overdevelopment and crowding in Japan has forced many of its indigenous spirits and ghosts to lose their homes. Due to problems caused by the homeless spirits, a new profession was created, the Ghost Sweepers (GS). Private exorcists for hire; they serve only the highest bidder to survive in the cutthroat corporate world. Among this, the Mikami GS Company, led by Reiko Mikami and her two assistants, the teenage boy Tadao Yokoshima and the ghost girl Okinu, is said to be the best. The manga setup is scenario-to-scenario, with many plots intertwining classic Japanese culture and modern day realities, with occasional references to Western influences. In between these plots are some longer story arcs where new characters are introduced and the existing characters are further developed. There is no one ongoing storyline, therefore the plots are character-driven and serve to gradually develop characters, especially the main protagonists. GS Mikami Gokuraku Daisakusen!! won the Shogakukan Manga Award for sh?nen.
