** PlayedForDrama: when Daikichi is buried by a landslide and on the brink of death, Kana uses the hitodama to summon an enormous amount of heat, enough to keep him alive and alert the authorities.

** The ''uta'' in Utako's name can mean "poem" or "song", and ''ko'' is a common ending for feminine names. Basically, it's as if she was called Melody.

** Used in a surprisingly serious tone in chapter 1, as Daikichi reaches out to point out Kana's lack of scars on her breasts, and ends up making physical contact with her for the first time. Kana laughs it off, and [[NextThingTheyKnew next thing they know]], they're very sweetly making love on the floor.

* AllWomenArePrudes: Subverted just as much as the above trope. Kana and Daikichi are just as enthusiastic and active in their relationship as each other, including the sexual aspect of it.

* GhostLights:
** A good indication of Kana's mood, as there are more of them when she is happy and make little "pop" noises when she is especially happy.
** Also used amusingly when Daikichi finds an old "dead" cellphone and he and Kana discover that he can use it to keep in touch with her. A stylized ghost light is her chat icon and one also takes place of the service icon.
** However, can also be used in a much more serious tone: when Daikichi is buried by a landslide and on the brink of death, Kana summons an enormous amount of heat, enough to keep him alive and alert the authorities.
* GhostlyChill: Kana's body is cold enough to [[MundaneUtility chill a beer in her cleavage and cool down Daikichi on hot summer days]]. Her presence alone actually brings down the temperature of the whole room she shares with him.
** Later on, when autumn then winter kick in, [[MoodWhiplash she experiences a bout of insecurity about it as she fears it could impact his health]]. However, Daikichi claims she has a warmth to her, albeit small, and that she gets warmer when they're having sex. [[ThePowerOfLove This is one of the hints that she gets more "alive" when she loves and is loved]].

Added DiffLines:

* HitodamaLight:
** The titular Kana naturally sports several balls of flames surrounding them. They are a good indication of her mood, since there are more of them and they make little "pop" sounds when she is especially happy.
** Also used amusingly when Daikichi finds an old "dead" cellphone and discovers that Kana can use it to keep in touch with him. A stylized hitodama is her chat icon and takes place of the signal meter on her phone.

** Amano Daikichi's full name means "great luck from heaven". He [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] himself the tragic {{Irony}} of it as he's been about as down on his luck as you can get when the story starts... until he meets Kana and both become blessed with lots of happiness. Even more symbolic from Kana's point of view, as "luck" literally came to her after ten years of solitude.

* ShowerScene: Daikichi and Kana first encounter Utako face-to-face in the shower. Another chapter opens with [[FanService Utako showering]], which leads to the SkinshipGrope mentioned beneath.

** The cover of volume 2 as well as several chapter title pages show Kana in a bikini or a shorter dress than usual with camera angles focusing on her cleavage, butt or crotch. Some of them can be quite jarring with the content itself, where Kana is actually rarely subjected to this kind of fanservice outside of her tender moments with Daikichi. Also, despite being the main character along with Kana, [[SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer Daikichi never appears on the covers or title pages]]. Basically, it looks as if the manga was trying to sell itself as your usual {{Fanservice}} centered {{ecchi}} at the time of its prepublication, and even later when it was published in book format.

** Interestingly, it doesn't mean the trope is played painfully straight: Kana and Daikichi can play it gentle just like they can play it rough, while being equally loving in both cases. They enjoy switching positions too. One particular example that comes to mind is a scene where they do it doggy-style, a position that has been used in some works to implement that Bad People Have Bad Sex. However, the narration, their facial expressions (especially Kana's smile during and after the act) and the way Daikichi holds her afterwards makes this sex scene just as beautiful as the others.

* {{Ecchi}}: The manga gets listed as this due to the [[BarbieDollAnatomy partly censored]] [[ExplicitContent love scenes]] between Kana and Daikichi (no censorship at all would have probably gotten it listed as {{Hentai}}), but when you compare it with the definition of the genre, you realize it actually bears more differences than common points with the usual {{ecchi}} manga:\\
[-- [[PornWithPlot The point of the story is not sex]], but Kana and Daikichi's getting a second chance at life through love and the small pleasures of everyday life (of which sex is a part).-]\\
[-- Although the focus is a bit more on [[CharacterTitle Kana]] than on [[{{Narrator}} Daikichi]], he isn't any less of a full-fledged character, rather than a [[GenericGuy stale]], [[FeaturelessProtagonist faceless camera]]. Some chapters even switch the "narrator/object of narration" relationship around by having ''Kana'' narrate ''him'' instead of the ordinary.-]\\
[-- There's no UnwantedHarem, not even a LoveTriangle.-]\\
[-- Outside of the sex scenes, there's surprisingly few {{Fanservice}}, with some chapters going without even a tad of it.-]\\
[-- And one could argue that even the {{Fanservice}} of the sex scenes is only a small part of them compared to their emotional value, [[ItsNotPornItsArt not to mention that some panels of Kana and Daikichi holding each other are truly beautiful]].-]
* ExplicitContent:
** When two young adults are this much in love, it's perfectly natural for them to have sex. The story includes those moments.
** This, along with some of the author's previous ero work, usually gets it listed as {{hentai}}, leaving it a wonderful work that [[SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove many people will probably pass up]] merely based on the classification.
