----
!This series contains the following tropes:
* BadassBoast: May also be taken as a {{Jerkass}} one-liner--
--> "One of these days, I'm gonna steal your wife."
* [[spoiler: BabiesEverAfter]]
* BittersweetEnding: While Rokka and Hazuki [[spoiler: get a happy end, Shimao is still aimlessly floating around town]].
* CrazyJealousGuy: Shimao Atsushi, to a point that he causes a [[RageBreakingPoint poltergeist to occur]].
* GrandTheftMe: Atsushi continually asks Hazuki to borrow his body, and [[spoiler:in episode 4, Atsushi actually succeeds as a drunken Hazuki less-than-consciously gives consent.]]
** Although, this case may be more DemonicPossession without the Demon element, as Atsushi was a body-less spirit at the time.
* [[IllGirl Ill Guy]]: Shimao
* INeedAFreakingDrink
* InvisibleToNormals: Shimao Atsushi is only visible to Hazuki and no-one else so they can't talk (read: Hazuki can't tell Shimao off) when other people are around. [[spoiler:Causes problems when Hazuki tries to call Shimao pathetic whilst Rokka is there and she slaps him not realizing Shimao has been interloping on their romance]]. It also means as much as he wants to Shimao can't touch his wife [[spoiler:or get her into bed when she passes out from fever.]]
** The two exceptions to this are Hazuki and [[spoiler: Hazuki's grandson]].
* LadyLooksLikeADude: Rokka, thanks to her haircut.
* MagicLand: [[spoiler: After Atsushi possesses Hazuki's body, his ousted soul is transported into another realm and is guided by a miniaturized version of a young Rokka.]]
* NiceHat: Rokka, sweetheart, are you wearing [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7sartz05U1qhwbzco1_1280.jpg a basket]] on your head?
** There's also Hazuki's dragon pattern hat. Rokka specifically mentions liking the pattern.
* PleaseDontLeaveMe: Uttered by a grief stricken Rokka when Atsushi has passed on his deathbed. His ghost complied to her request and stayed besides her ever since. This served as a catalyst for the entire story.
* ResurrectedRomance
* RomancingTheWidow
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Hazuki, as it seems
* JustifiedTitle: The "natsuyuki" (snow-in-summer) in the title apparently refers to the [[spoiler: potted plant that Shimao spirits away from his house as he runs away still in Hazuki's body.]]
* TriangRelations: Type 7a
* [[spoiler: WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: This is what bothers Atsushi (while in Hazuki's body) when Rokka reciprocated Hazuki's feelings for her.]]
* {{Yandere}}: Shimao
* YouCanSeeMe: Shimao had heard of people who can see ghosts before, but in the three years since his death Hazuki is the first one he's encountered.
