EIICHI P.I. VOL. 1 By JAMES K. PENN
Eiichi P.I. Vol 1
*He carries the secrets of people. Everything that scares you, saddens you, or delights you, chances are, he already knows. Eiichi Kozuka is an avoidant, chain-smoking, second year student attending Aki Guro High School, a school with more problems than it lets on. He has a bad attitude, and a worse reputation. In truth, he just wants to be left alone, because he carries a secret of his own…
Eiichi is an empath. He can read and feel the emotions of others, at all times. It may sound convenient – however, this ability comes with its own headaches, quite literally.
They get worse when Eiichi meets a curious and energetic photographer named Noda, who pulls him into one harrowing scenario after another, while he must use his abilities to get them out.*
James K. Penn writes with great humor and detail. Eiichi came to life as an unexpected hero, both to me and the character. His witty remarks had me giggling to myself as I followed his journey on an unexpected adventure.
The development between Eiichi and Noda's friendship continued steadily, introducing different sides to both characters as the story progressed. As the Heroin, Noda is portrayed as a young girl who takes pride in helping others, and someone who enjoys the thrill of the next adventure. Her contrast to Eiichi works well with bringing out a lovable side to him.
I do wish James would have explained Eiichi’s empath ability a little more in depth and as for the ending, It felt a little unfinished.
Overall I really enjoyed this light novel, and recommend it to anyone wanting a quick read at only 217 pages and a taste for mystery.
