Manga: Hito Hitori Futari

Her detention saves lives.

In the afterlife, people go to school to purify their soul so that they can be reincarnated. Riyon is one of these deceased, though she has no intention of spending great effort into her purification and plays Go with an old Guru instead. So, as a corrective measure, the principal sends her down as a Spirit Guardian to purify the soul of someone who has been overly corrupted and lost his Guardian.

Limiting her stay by choosing a person who is bound to die soon, she realizes she has picked possibly the most lonely and bullied person of Japan: Prime Minister Souichiro Kasuga.

This seinen manga is penned by Tsutomu Takahashi, author of Sky High and Jiraishin, and deals with a man facing a life that fell apart and his guardian angel.
