Kagamigami by Iwashiro Toshiaki
A serial killer is on the loose and authorities are baffled! What they do not know is that this case requires non-traditional research methods. That's where Mako Miyoshi the detective and Kyosuke Kagami the Shikigami user enter the picture. Together they investigate supernatural crimes! [from mangaupdates]

Great improvement in artwork and panelling. If you take Psyren, which is one of my favourite manga's and this, you will see a world of difference in the way the panels are ordered. Miho feels fresh as a main character and I can't imagine yet how she will grow as of chapter 4. The first chapter already confirmed that she's not gonna end up as a useless heroine outclassed and underdeveloped for the spotlight of the hero.

I agree, the artwork and panelling were very nice in comparison with Psyren's first chapter. The mangaka has definitely improven his skills. I liked the first chapter a lot because it had a decent pace and story. You don't see it very often that after the first villain is defeated that there's still 8-9 pages for some sort of epilogue. The female lead isn't finally annoying nor bland. She will have an important role in whole this story.
Really liking this series so far, probably because I also really liked Psyren. Always been a fan of series with spirits , shikigami and the like. Plus, Mako`s really funy,
not really the typical heroine. But isn`t the thread made a little to early?I mean it`s Shounen Jump, who knows if it won`t be cancelled when it starts getting ranked.
You can never be sure what will be popular with the japanese. Oh well, hope it will be succesful.
Is there any progress with the transtlation of chapter 2 or the raw of chapter 6?

[RAW]Kagamigami Chapter 7
Kyosuke enrolled in school but I wonder if he's just undercover or if it'll be permanent. I was hoping the next possible supporting cast member be a female, and it looks like one is introduced in this chapter. I hope she sticks around.
Looks like the entire atmosphere is a lot lighter right now, well, I wouldn't like to already reach a fight with what could be the main villain when we barely have any characters. I hope the scans will catch up soon so I could figure out the nature of the new characters.

Did anyone read chapter 8 and can translate how the story rolls?

Little bummed the new female character didn't turn out to have some sort of ability, felt this story could've gone on for one or two more chapters and developed the new character into a rival of the protagonist. I'm digging the new familiar and the overall design of the creatures in the series.
Haven't found chapter 9 floating around, just this one image:
Kyousuke looks like a kid in the image, so I guess we may get a bit of his backstory.
edit: [Raw] Chapter 9
So I was right about getting a little info on kyousuke past, but was surprised that the short-haired detective from chapter 3 grew up with kyo. I wonder if this was mentioned in chapter 3 between the two detectives before the long-haired detective visits kyo?

Obviously, they don't look the same. I checked into chapter 9 and from what I can tell - images :-) - it looks pretty cool. As I said in another thread, unlike psyren the mangaka doesn't rush things and characters are introduced first. Anyway, I hope that the scanlators can catch up fast :-)
