There have been recurring deaths from the sudden explosion of human beings, and the telepathic Kirisaki Satori has 'overheard' the identity of the killer! However, the police don't believe in supernatural abilities so they send her over to the "Occult Division." This division is in the charge of a 14-year-old boy named Araya Shiki, who at least believes her claims. The two of them must track down the dangerous killer, without falling prey to his deadly supernatural ability!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

While on a school trip, high school student Satou Takekiyo found something unusual in the mountains, something his ancestor Satou Norikiyo (known also as Saigyo) left behind over 800 years ago. It was a creature who looked like a girl, but was really a person that had been constructed by Saigyo and then abandoned. She had eyes that shone like an animal's, long black hair, pale white skin, and she was living in a cave surrounded by bones.
The girl followed Takekiyo when he tried to leave her, seemingly convinced that he had come to finally take her from the mountain. Now Takekiyo and his friends must deal with this unexpected and unnatural new addition to their lives, just as she must learn to live in the modern human world!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Mitsukubi Condor and Gazer are both very standard one-shots of their genre. I enjoyed Gazer a bit more, mostly because I liked the art more. I wasn't sure whether or not to call it a mystery-- the answer to the mystery is known from the first page. However, if it turns into a series, I imagine they'll be solving crimes together. Tokiwasure no Sutehime was an interesting one, since the girl actually seems pretty inhuman (at the beginning, at least). Also, she gets into pretty violent difficulties in the modern world, from an interesting mixture of naivete and indifference to injury.
one-shot is from the mangaka who also published Koisome Momiji
, although it seems to be in a different genre (action as opposed to romance from before). If you are looking for a more action-y type one-shot, then this would be for you.
The Mitsukubi Condor
one-shot is also another action-y type one-shot. Of the two one-shots, I thought Gazer looked/sounded the more interesting of the two.
On the other hand, Tokiwasure no Sutehime - Tokio Engitan
sounded the most interesting of the three. I'm curious to see how a supernatural being made from the past would deal with the confusing modern times and technology. Also, why would her creator abandon her after making her...?Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
