Now in HighSchool, she views them as more than a nuisance than anything. One day, Rinne Rokudo, a student who has been absent since the beginning of the year appears in class, strangely-dressed and visible only to Sakura -- yet after school, she [[CrashIntoHello finds him to be solid]], unlike any ghost she has seen. Turns out he's a half human, half shinigami (or a grim reaper) whose job is to ferry souls to the afterlife, of which Sakura winds up accidently going to.

* AccidentalPervert: Twice in the same arc. [[spoiler:Chapter 100 continues an arc where Sakura has lost her ability to see ghosts, and just when a whole lot of them are after her for the A-1 Grand Prix. Tamako gives Rinne a gift of a doll that can take on the form of a given person, after achieving a strand of hair. The doll takes Sakura's form in order to redirect the ghosts to it, but Tsubasa thinks it's some kind of sex doll, and calls Rinne a pervert. Continuing from there, in chapter 101, Rinne, wearing his haori, slips into Sakura's room to check on her just as her mom is calling her for the bath. If the shinigami wasn't such a decent guy, he would've seen even more than he already had.]] This means that this is no longer the Rumiko Takahashi odd-one-out, in the respect that [[spoiler:we finally see some cleavage]]. Not counting the Nirvana House oneshot chapter.

** "Imoto": This character is a member of the horticulture club, and "imo" (芋) is a suffix used in the words for several types of root vegetables.

Added DiffLines:

* MayDecemberRomance: Rokudo's grandparents. Tamako, being a shinigami, is [[OlderThanTheyLook much, much older than her appearance suggests]]. [[spoiler: Also, Sabato and Otome. Sabato is around 30-40 years old while Otome was ''2 years younger than Tamako''. Needless to say, everyone was shocked when they found out.]]

* ArtShift: Page 6 of chapter 27 features some (in-story) drawings made by members of the art club. These have a distinctly different drawing style from Takahashi's usual style.

** In the anime, Sakura's mother has green eyes and hair, wears a yellow apron with brown stripes, and speaks with a slight accent. These character traits are reminiscent of Lum from ''Manga/UruseiYatsura''.[[note]]To hammer this home, at one point in the third season, Lum's mother actually says "dat'cha", Lum's VerbalTic.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* ViewersAreGoldfish: The anime and manga both have a bad habit of explaining characters, motives, and Shinigami tools dozens of episodes and chapters after they've all ''well'' been established.
