I'm (Sort of) an Expert on Ghosts

by Cho

Original Comedy Historical Romance Supernatural
Tsunoda Naoki is a ghost expert! Maybe. Okay, not really. He just pretends to be one, scraping a living by putting the easily-spooked at ease. But his luck seems to run out when he's suddenly got a real ghost to deal with. He can't even see this spirit, let alone exorcise her—and to complicate matters further she apparently seems to like Naoki… a lot. Is this ghost hunt a romantic comedy or a tragic horror?

My kokoro is aching~

Just what my titles says, after reading through the chapters(chapter 9 while I'm writing this), my kokoro aches~


For the most part, I think the story is very well done. This is probably—not an understatement—the most interesting story in first person that I came across to in Royal Road. The style of writing really depicts what the character feels for the most part and the mc's monologue were just plain awesome. As in a way that it makes me want to read more. 


For the grammar part....

There were times when a word was missing a letter, probably due to typing fast or something like that, but not something that could impede your immersion in the story.  I even feel like this was written by a professional author.


Overall I greatly enjoyed this novel and hope that many more penguins from Royal Road would give it a try. To you out there who wants to take a break from the norm these days, I would suggest reading this one asap, you won't regret it.

A Story that NEEDS more attention

This story is one of the few stories in RoyalRoad that actually finished. It is very professional and neat. It even has illustrations! It is basically an English Light Novel.

The story can be funny, relaxing, depressing, thrilling and action packed. It is very interesting and well done. No lose ends and plot holes can be found.

The characters are also fleshed out and have that authentic feel to them. They grow as the story goes on.

The grammar is great. If the author edits his typos (words missing letters) which are already rare. It would be perfect.

The genre is of this story is not common in RoyalRoad. Most people will probably look past it because of that. I admit people come to RoyalRoad for RPG-esque stories. People however need something different once in a while right? And this story is in the same site just one click away.

A Ghost Story/ Romance/ Comedy/ Horror is not really popular right now. The story and writing however is good and even if you don’t like the genre I suggest you give it a try.

Just look at it the effort the author and artist put in this Light Novel is amazing. The author and artist should edit and publish it.


Plus it’s FREE

(well everything on this site is free but you get the point)

Absolutely fantastic! 


I don't have the knowledge to use fancy terms to describe this story and why I think it's so good. How I judge a story is based on how well the story comes to life in my mind. How immersed I get in it. How real the characters feel.


So, saying that, it wouldn't surprise me if I was told that this was based on a true story. It felt like a real location, with real people, with real interactions.


This story makes me want to go back to reading published stories. I still have a small bookcase full of books that I’ve picked up at various places that I haven’t read.


There’s something so satisfying about reading a truly professional work.

Brilliant story that deserve more exposure

The title says it all about this story. It was beautifully well-written and are an extremely immersive piece of writing that truly can make the readers FEEL the story and empathise with the characters.


This is a story that definitely deserves a larger readership and a lot more reviews. The story is coherent and had a clear goal that the character work towards and a beautiful ending that is satisfying. 


The primary cast of characters are really interesting and fleshed out as they had all experienced growth and character development throughout the story that really gave them depth and keep me entranced. Though the side characters seemed to be just shoved inside the story at the very end and the beginning, but they're also somewhat well-written and memorable in their own way.


There's no major grammar errors and nothing too glaringly obvious that detracts from the story. Really enjoyed the story, would highly recommend it.
