Ryousuke Hazuki is a young man whose heart has been stolen away, stopping by the local floral shop daily in order to catch a glimpse of the beautiful Rokka Shimao, the shop's owner. In hopes of getting close to her, he decides to get a part-time job at the shop, but before he is able to make his move, he runs into a major roadblock: in her apartment dwells a ghost who claims to be Rokka's deceased husband.

Atsushi Shimao has quietly watched over his widowed wife ever since he passed three years ago. However, Hazuki is the first person to ever notice him, and the two quickly find themselves at odds: the jealous Shimao attempts to thwart the suitor's advances and possess his body, while Hazuki simply wants the ghost to pass on for good, allowing Rokka to move on from the past and him to be with the one he loves. As both men refuse to let go of their desires, an unusual relationship forms between a troubled woman, an unrelenting ghost, and a stubborn man in love.

Great music, anime is filled with emotions. Loved the show. It's lenght is ideal. Hazuki's adventure inside that dream world was unnecessary and too long. But after all anime is only 11 eps so nothing takes too long to watch. It tells the sadness of someone lost and also the difficulty to love again, mixed emotions about loyalty, love of a young man etc. Story is unique as far as I know. We all have seen animes with talking ghosts but its focus is different from other shows like this. Art style and songs are fitting for the story, they are perfect. Characters were well ...

Mixed Feelings
I have never in my life, watched an anime with pure interest, to only end in annoyance and disappointment. (Contain spoilers)

The story starts so well, I thought it was about a widow who was gonna overcome her grief, and find new love with someone else. I thought it was about acceptance of the events that happened in the past but no, the time when the most annoying character I've ever seen in an anime gets to ruin the next half of the series, which is such a shame since I really love the premise.

The art, it reminds me of Kimi No Todoke. Though I think ...

I will make it SPOILER FREE and SHORT

I thought i will never give an anime such a low score but this one deserves it aand i will tell you why.

Story starts pretty solid from first episode, you get some introduction and actually has a potential to be something promising. Aand it lasted whole episode, in the second one plot is turning to a flat line of nothingness. Does not develop from that in any smart way. Plot is full of illogical twists, besides, it has link to wonderland (it is not spoiler but you have to be prepared, you need special mind set for that ...
