Gazing At The Moon starts out interesting enough, but I’m not feeling it. It’s missing something to fully allow myself to be immersed in the story.

Gazing At The Moon Summary
“You are the Child of the Moon and you must come along with me to the Moon Palace.”
Bora is a high school student who has the ability to see ghosts.
One day, a Moon Rabbit finds me and drops a bomb on me. You’re saying that I have to travel to the moon when I, due to my useless ability, can’t even get into a single relationship?
There’s no way that’s happening and I won’t go, I’m going to escape my hopeless love life!
Will Bora be able to have a relationship without any accidents?MU
Although I do like a story with a different plot, I don’t like the protagonist being short-sighted. Bora’s only concern seems to be her inability to have a relationship, like that’s the biggest issue in the world.
I’m not really minding anything else about the story, although it’s a bit weird overall. The moon deity guardian guy is a bit meh, but I don’t mind him too much, either. The two male leads, however, feel quite mediocre at best.
One is a guy who has been next to Bora for quite some time, as a classmate. However, it seems he and his family have some ulterior motives behind being nice to her. The moon rabbit seems like he has no personality or is very mellow, which isn’t that interesting.
Heck, the one who is most full of expression is the demon or whatever he is, residing in the sewers. He looks ugly as hell, which I suppose is because we’re not allowed to mistake him for a love interest for our non-interesting Bora.
Literally, the only redeeming quality Bora has is her ability to see ghosts, that’s it. From the few chapters I’ve been reading, she seems boring and nothing special.
Her biggest issue with her life is her non-existent love life and that’s the reason she doesn’t want to join the deity. Her reason for not leaving has nothing to do with leaving her parents or classmate, which is pissing me off for some reason.
Recommendation: I’m not loving the story. There’s a possibility the story is going to get better but I’m not going to bother reading until that happens.
