Description: Niwa, a college student of architecture, is moving into his deceased grandfather's house. He didn't know the man very well, but the house is conveniently close to school, and his grandfather was actually the architect who designed it. There's something unsettling about the house, though, and while he's wandering around, Niwa finds a mysterious old photograph of some girl who isn't his grandmother.
Later, he goes along with his friend Akira to take drawings of another old house that's going to be demolished. As he meanders through this old house, he has a somewhat supernatural and startling experience. Are these feelings and occurrences a result of the souls of the buildings themselves, as Akira suggests? Or is there some even deeper mystery to Niwa's uncanny experiences?

Apparently, though "contemporary architecture" means "21st Century architecture" in English, the Japanese word commonly translated as "contemporary architecture" means "pre-war Western-style architecture" in Japanese. That confused me for a sec, but it's clear what they mean.

A bit like the way "modern" or 'modernist" architecture in English can refer to a movement that peaked in the 50s and 60s.

I am willing to bet money that rich guy buys the building and does renovations on i for the cherry blossoms.


I think you're probably right. In any case, he's gonna save it somehow.

Yes, glacial is certainly apt for that series. I followed it for some time, and liked it, but I decided to wait until it was completed, as some things are better taken in one dose than piecemeal. This story seems more episodic, as though chapters can also be enjoyed one at a time.

Yesterday's actually getting close to done.  There's a guy putting in pretty regular monthly updates and it seems there's only a few chapters to go.  Recently every chapter has had actual stuff happening!  I'll try to remember to let you know when it actually hits the end.

There's no plot progression but why am I enjoying chapter 18


Because the Grinch's heart is about to grow 3 sizes.

this series is starting to mirror his other works where nothing really happens for a couple of chapter, this author likes taking his time lol

I'll admit I was slightly annoyed when this chapter started and it appeared that jerkface would be more important in this arc, but after finishing the chapter, this looks like it'll be a lot of fun.

Well, I can see where jerkface got his bluntness and arbitrariness.  As to his grumpiness, well, he clearly didn't inherit it from his dad, but I can see that guy making me grumpy.

Phew... I was beginning to fear that Maigo had dropped this series.

Did someone say Usagi Drop?
I heard someone say Usagi Drop XD

Kwitch'er trolling. This is Toume Kei we're talking here.  Look at her other work; a sappy shoujo ending? not on your life. There's more likely to be sad spirits than sappy lollies.

If you try to get lollies out of Toume Kei you'll get something like Ian (an actual doll animated by a spirit) or Acony (who looks like a middle-school girl but due to a supernatural accident is twice that age). In both cases the male MC did not get a Good Ending.

Why has there been no update for almost 2 months now? :(

Just started this, having been lured by the description, as I have a thing for old buildings, kind of like the girl from the kendo dojo.  I feel the frustration at seeing older buildings that were built with passion and imagination torn down to make way for ticky-tacky.  So much that is replacing them is real drek.  I have to agree with Apollo Kenobi that this manga has an Ashinano Hitoshi feel to it, with all the mystery and drama rather understated (just the way I like it). Writing, as with acting, always seems much better to me when it is subtle instead of "in your face."  It has been a great read so far, and I'm really looking forward to more chapters.

Hi Comadrin! Toumei Kei is a good mangaka. If you're feeling verrry patient, you should try Yesterday Wo Utatte by the same person. Beautifully done, but the pace is notoriously glacial.

Uhoh. When she says he became hers, I'm really hoping she means as a metaphorical symbol of escape.

Since she hadn't met him at the time, I don't see how literal it could be.

Wait what, hope this doesn't go into THAT route

Is there anyone with a spoiler who can prove/disprove this?

I like drama (particularly from this author), but I really hope it doesn't get too weird again.

The tags say "Drama", "Mystery" and "Supernatural", and I suppose that's all true . . . but mostly it feels kind of restful and nostalgic more than dramatic or mysterious.  The backstory and even the characters' stories seem almost like an excuse to noodle around with cool old buildings and wish they weren't all getting torn down.  Not surprising considering the mangaka, I guess.

Mystery? A bit i guess? It doesnt leave me guessing like other mystery mangas and the Supernatural part is pretty unique 

 

Drama, there's only a little it is mostly slice of life

So uh... Ch12... Niwa didn't notice Tsuwabuki knew his name?


Of course he didn't. Everyone knows his name because he's the grandson of a famous architect. *insert lofty expectations here*

Another Toumei Kei series? Followed!
