Tropes

    • Subverted in that you can loosen your debt through divine favor.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Spiritism is largely forgotten in Europe since the early 20th century, but retains a huge number of followers in Latin America, especially Brazil.
  • Ghost Amnesia: Recently deceased spirits are described as being often oblivious of the fact that they died.
