Currently Addicted To: Ghost Sweeper : Mikami!

Ghost sweeper is a story about a money grubbing, self-centered anti-heroine named Reiko Mikami and her lecherous assistant Tadao Yokoshima who continually harasses her and other female characters in the manga even their secretary, a 300 year old ghost named Okinu.
The manga is very entertaining and addicting with no storyline but having lots of story arcs which develop the main characters and keep on adding new characters in a skillful way that you can’t help but feel lonely for them if they don’t show up again. The new characters themselves are various forms of anti-heroes and anti-heroines such as a former assassin voodoo expert, an evil immortal mad scientist/warlock with an ancient android, a vampire and even the dreaded Kyubi or nine-tailed fox demon.
Published in 1991 till 1999, the 39 volumes written and drawn by Takashima Shiina has set a standard for supernatural comedy genre mangas. It combines Asian primarily Japanese culture, religion and mythology with the West.
