The Atoner: Eiri is forced by Cossette to become this, bearing the punishment and pain for what Marcello did to her simply because he can see her spirit and, like Marcello, fell in love with her.

Failure Is the Only Option: In the manga, Eiri must die to free Cossette's soul. He runs back at the last moment and lives, but as he leaves the hospital, a truck hits and kills him.

Gotta Catch Them All: In the manga, Eiri must find Cossette's cursed furniture to make the ritual to free her soul.

in the OVA, Cossette gets to reincarnate in Shoko.
Ret Gone: In the manga, Eiri's existence is slowly disappearing as the night of the ritual to free Cossette gets closer, because he's still willing to join her in death. Once he escapes from Cossette dragging him to hell (actually from a church on fire), everything goes back to normal.
Sadistic Choice: In the manga, Eiri finds out that saving Cossette will result in his own death. Caught between fear and love - and life and death - he must make up his mind about whether or not he loves her enough to sacrifice his life for her.
Together in Death/You Are Worth Hell: In the manga, the only way to free Cossette's soul from her painting is for Marchello's reincarnation (Eiri) to kill himself in a ritualistic way and join Cossette's soul in hell.
