* DontFearTheReaper: Wouldn't you like the last person you see before you die to be a sweet {{Mystical White Hair}}ed girl who will ease your pain and the sadness of who you're leaving behind?
** That is, of course, if you met her. Don't expect this with other reapers, especially An.

* EvilCounterpart: An is this another shinigami who looks exactly the same as Momo, but dresses in all-black instead of all-white. And instead of trying to help the people who are facing death, An would opt to Momodestroy the souls she collects.

Added DiffLines:

* SliceOfLife: It is very much in the style of slice of life. It is an interesting example, however, since the characters it focuses on, are usually about to die (slice of death?) and the story also focuses on Momo, who is decidedly not a human.

''Ballad of a Shinigami'' is a {{light novel}} series that was adapted into a six-episode {{anime}} in 2006.

The story is primarily about Momo, a {{shinigami}} that looks like a white-haired young girl. She is a different sort of shinigami: While she still leads souls to the other side, she tries to ease the suffering of both the living and the dead she encounters. Her companion is Daniel, a small cat that follows her. The other shinigami is An, who looks like a young girl, but she dresses in all black and is cruel, with no sympathy to the souls she takes. Most of the series centers on Momo and Daniel and the people they both heal and take away.

A 12-episode TV drama was also made. It's a sweet and sad story that's fairly short but worth your time.
