''Sky High'' is a fairly obscure {{seinen}} manga by Creator/TsutomuTakahashi. It went on to inspire a live-action Japanese series and a film.

Izuko is the gatekeeper between Heaven and Earth. She gives the deceased three choices-- they can await reincarnation in heaven, defy death and remain WalkingTheEarth as a ghost forever, or to get revenge on a human and kill them, and burn in agony eternally in hell. They have 12 days to choose their fate, and can learn things about their lives and the people they once loved's current lives.

The manga tells the story of each victim and what path they take.

!!Tropes used by the {{manga}}:

* DrivenToSuicide: Kino-shita, assisted suicide. Normally suicide gets you sent to hell immediately - Izuko says it's murdering yourself - so she researched this technicality and convinced her friend to do it.
* EmotionlessGirl: Izuko
* GhostlyGoals: A major drive in the individual plots
* GoldDigger: A hideous man kills his girlfriend because he thinks she was after only his money. Turns out she was both with him for the money, and because she was lonely herself.
* GoodbyeCruelWorld: Kino-shita sends a note to each one of the AlphaBitch snobs who bully her telling them that one of them is next, because she will come back to kill.
* GoOutWithASmile: Pretty much all the characters, even the ones who have damned themselves.
* HellGate: What the third option eventually leads to.
* HeroicSpirit: [[spoiler:Mai.]]
* InfantImmortality: The pregnant's woman son does not go [[spoiler:down to hell]] with her. [[spoiler:She puts her son's spirit into the body of her murderer's newborn son, replacing her murderer's child.]]
** Actually, it's ambiguous where Noriko goes at the end. The last page leaves us with Izuko looking at [[spoiler:the sky]]. That's the ending we get when someone goes to [[spoiler:heaven]].
* InvisibleToNormals: Ghosts.
* ItCantBeHelped: After the schoolgirl Kino-shita kills herself because she knows she'll be able to kill the Libby at her school, she realizes that her friend she left behind is overjoyed in her death and then wishes she hadn't decided to drown herself. Izuko simply tells her that's it's too late and it can't be helped, so she might as well just go to heaven without going through with the killing.
* LoserProtagonist: The man that saves a woman from an assault.
* {{Meganekko}}: Kino-shita
* NightmareFace: The dead woman from "Room 302" has one of these on the final page as she prepares for damnation.
* SeeYouInHell: The murdered gold digger's body is left under the hotel room's bed, and when a couple have sex on top of the bed she kills them and is damned for killing someone other than her murderer. Izuko tells her that she'll be eternally lonely there, like Izuko is, and the woman grins and tells her, "See you there."
* SelfInflictedHell: The third option.
* SpiritWorld: Where the dead meet Izuko
* TogetherInDeath: The two dead souls from "Connection", who choose to kill their murderers and descend into Hell together.
* UnfinishedBusiness: Revenge fuels a lot of the decisions.
