** [[spoiler: The imagery, tone, dialogue, and Kana's absence immediately afterward all suggest she sacrificed herself to save him... but after ten suspenseful pages, Kana is revealed to be waiting at home, just as lively as always. Readers who don't realize there are two more volumes may be on the verge of crying over this poignant BittersweetEnding, only to get knocked off their feet by a wave of sweet relief.]]

* During the bath house chapter, Kana spends a lot of time admiring the different kinds of bodies around her, from the very old to the very young. At one point she wishes an old lady a long life... which the lady hears, and responds to with a heartfelt thank you. Kana is so overcome by this that she sinks to the bottom of the pool to blow bubbles. The whole snippet makes for a very sweet moment.

* Possibly the only time a [=BJ=] ever falls under Heartwarming, Kana's first attempt with Daikichi is so innocently earnest and naïve that it is sweet and funny instead of raunchy.

** Are you implying it was her, or someone she knew? I genuinely can't tell.
** The ambiguity is certainly deliberate. Japanese readers also hesitate between both interpretations, although the second one ("someone she knew") seems more likely as, 1) Yaguchi didn't have a glow around her like Kana when she came back and, 2) she was only absent from work on the day the body was found, yet the whole room was already stinking by the time Daikichi's team arrived. This would also explain the line "Will all the things that you love also disappear?", of which an alternate translation could be "Will the fact I loved and was loved also disappear?".

* In the afterward for the third volume, Tanaka Yutaka writes about how the story came about, his lack of confidence in his early years as a mangaka to do it justice, and how it sat in the back of his mind until he felt he was worthy of being able to create it in the way he imagined it should. It's very sweet, humbling, and heartwarming to read.

* Daikichi assuring Kana that there is warmth in her. The way he convinces her to stay with him in chapter 21 when she's afraid of impending his health is ''especially'' adorable. And then, as if that wasn't enough already, the chapter ends with the only "I love you" spoken directly by one of them to the other...
