New Series Kagamigami by Toshiaki Iwashiro

Kyousuke Kagami is a young shikigami user, who along with Hakutenmaru, a spirit fox, came to Tokyo to solve supernatural cases. There they met Mako, a young girl aiming to become great detective. As they solve a supernatural case together, Mako decides to stick with them, hoping that will help with her detective career.
Kagamigami began in Weekly Shonen Jump #11 by experienced mangaka Toshiaki Iwashiro, most known for his previous work, Psyren.
Kagamigami is based on the Shikigami Twilight Days oneshot that Iwashiro created in 2014.

The series explores the supernatural and the Japanese interest in Onmyouji & Shikigami. Kagamigami has a good balance of action, comedy and an intriguing plot to draw readers, but it lacks an overall goal or objective. Of course as the series is just starting it has room to grow into a loved series. I personally find Iwashiro's previous work, Psyren, to be more interesting.
