** 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.

MyLovelyGhostKana is a beautifully written and illustrated story from TanakaYutaka spanning a year of Kana and Daikichi's lives in three volumes. Somewhere between SliceOfLife and MagicalGirlfriend, it's a story that deals with two people, their love for each other, and how their love carries them from their difficult pasts into a bright and hopeful future.

** Inagawa uses the formal variation of ''watashi'', even in informal situations such as inner monologues or a date. Recounting his childhood has him using the even more formal ''jibun''. [[{{Heartwarming}} Interestingly, when comforting Yaguchi, he switches to ''boku'']].

Added DiffLines:

* DeathGlare: After Inagawa indulges in his occult interests one time too many (and harasses a customer in the process), Yaguchi gives him one of these. Her expression is mild, but the lightning in the background more than makes up for it.

* DrivenToSuicide: Kana, tragically was driven to kill herself for reasons she doesn't remember. Daikichi was on the verge until he met Kana, as was Utako until she became friends with Kana and Daikichi.

* DyingAlone: Poor Kana. It was to the point that virtually no one cared or even knew about her death until they found her decomposing body. And even then, it was easily forgotten.

** Inagawa sports the most angst of anyone, being depressed over his mundane life compared to his love of the occult. However his date with Kana gives him the "paranormal" experience he's wanted his whole life and is able to return to his daily routine satisfied and happy.
