Ghost Hunt Vol. 2 by Shiho Inada

Main Character: High School Student Mai Taniyaki
Location: Japan
Time period: Contemporary
Genre: YA Manga, Fantasy, Ghosts

Ewww! Creepy haunted doll! I'm not kidding--the minute you see this doll, you know it's possessed by an evil spirit. Meanwhile, a film crew trying to film a romantic scene in the park is mysteriously doused with water.

The first volume was all explanation and set-up, introducing the characters and drawing in the broad strokes. Now the series can settle down and start developing the characters and their situation. Mai and Kazuya continue their love/hate relationship--you know something is going develop there before long! Not great, but certainly enjoyable.
