romance supernatural


Though his name may mean good luck, Daikichi is far from lucky. Losing his home and his job, he narrowly avoids being homeless when he finds an old abandoned apartment building. But the apartment isn't nearly as abandoned as it first appeared, as it's being occupied by the ghost of a girl who committed suicide there many years prior. An ecchi romantic comedy from Tanaka Yutaka, mangaka of Ai-Ren.

This manga follows the life of a man after he loses his house and his job, ending up having to live in a run-down house. In fact he feels so sad that he even contemplates on commiting suicide. However, in the new run-down house he is in now, he meets Kana. A girl ghost which changes his outlook on life.

The story is told in first person, mostly from the man's perspective, sometimes from Kana's perspective and sometimes from the perspectives of other character in the story.The story is very simple, sweet and beautiful. Nothing too complicated, no harem, no stupid love triangles, no gender benders, read more

this is a hard one to review.

this manga is almost completely episodic, where any one chapter can be read out of order. so i gave it a 6 because of an over all lack of story.

the art is almost perfect for this kind of manga, but at points i do wish there was something a little more.

characters, this is where the manga shines, i dont want to spoil it, but you know how in most mainstream shonen its back story to add to the characters. this is almost the complete opposite of that, and its awesome for it. there is one character close to the read more

Both around about a guy who moves into a haunted apartment that is the home of a female ghost. The main difference is that in "My Lovely Ghost Kana" the ghost and the boy are both in love with each other while in "Zettai Reiiki" it is more one sided, at first anyway.
A lot of sex and nudity, but in a nice kind of way. Both of these manga have a heartfelt story behind the ecchi genre that they have been labeled. One yuri one non-yuri(i.e straight).
