THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
A guy liking buying flowers everyday it seems, and is in love with the woman, who he doesn't know the name. He joined the part-time thinking as a chance, but is not alone because there's a girl who's doing part-time, too.

Then he met Fukuyama-san's character, who sensed that the main guy has a crush on her. As co-workers party and eating together. While the girl cries, he went out to smoke. It turns out the husband was ... So the woman cannot see him even if he's near her... The woman also talks to the female part-timer about the deceased husband.

lol @ the ghost husband literally flying around her after that.

There's sister-in-law (husband's older sister) with glasses, who usually helps out weekends. Then learning about b-day being tomorrow for the owner/marriage anniversary. The owner cries when eating ramen. She guessed if he likes her, and cannot believe so. The next day he challenged the ghost husband that he's going to steal her.

Both OP and ED nice.

The all plot reminded me Hazuki himself. Can't explain it in words properly but such association.

I like the vocals of the OP! And I like the visuals of the ED and the song very much! :)

Interesting conversation between the ghost and Hazuki, I wonder what role the sister will have in all of this... :O

And that's a pretty complicated love triangle, can't wait to see more!

the humor and romance hit all the the right notes to me. Definitely takes the spot for best anime of the season thus far!

That was excellent. This is probably the only anime this season that has a special, unique spark to it.
And the OP and ED were just... *squee* Yuuya Matsushita and Aimer!!!! <3

I decided to watch this because I was bored, but I actually ended up enjoying it a lot.

I really liked the banter between Hazuki and the dead husband.

The only good one along with Tari Tari so far.

Definetly the Sakamichi no Apollon of this season. Might even be better.

Good replacement for Apollon.

Both visuals and gestures have a lot of charm.
The characters sound adults and the situation of living with the dead husband is very interesting.

It's a mystery what will be there difirencial the dead been there. Will focus on the struggle of Rokka to "move on"? Ryuusuke feel eclipsed by the shadow of the deceased? Rokka will discover at some point that Atsushi is there? Rokka and Ryuusuke will seek together a way to do Atsushi disappear, maybe this happening when he see Rokka marrying again?

Regardless, the way the characters interacted in this episode was very enjoyable.

Yep agree, Nice visual art, Cute characters and interesting concept to a romance, looks quite promising hope it develops well with only 11 episodes =/

Nevertheless The OP and ED are one of the best I've heard yet this summer :3

^This

It was the rare type of an Anime. I can't really explain my feelings but it's very enjoyable.

The characters are just too awesome. Awesome characters + Awesome seiyuus = Awesome experience.

Sakamichi no apollon, despite the things that it left out, were great. Now, comparing to Sakamichi, Natsuyuki is a lot shorter, so the adaptation should be a lot smoother (at least that's what I'm hoping for lol)

Really enjoyable first episode!

The characters and atmosphere are rather refreshing. This is definitely my current show of the season. I can't wait to see how the story develops from here.

The ED song is amazing!

omg i sooooo didn't expect her husband to be actually dead o_o
i didn't pay any attention to its genre i just add it to my list once my eyes saw 'Josei'
now it's Josei AND Supernatural how delicious this will get <33333333

So far this is my most anticipated anime for this season!
i rarely get excited tbh but this anime instantly made me go ♥___♥

Not bad even though the main girl's art kinda unusual. Let's hope the story development will be a good one..
Keep on moving forward

What a cute first episode! I also thought the series was just a slice-of-life josei at first, so I was caught off-guard (in a good way!) by the supernatural twist. XD I love the interactions so far between Hazuki and Rokka's late husband and I can't wait for more! Now that Hazuki's confession is out of the way, I hope we get some romance soon but I'll feel so bad for Rokka's late husband if he doesn't get a chance to move on too and just watches the two grow closer together. :(

Nice art, nice music, not much going on in terms of plot. Also, some questionable writing. I know this was an attempt at being josei, but I'm pretty sure she wouldn't be like "yeah let's just carry on and have noodles together" after he drops "you need to get over your dead husband by banging me".

Pretty ironic considering your avatar is Ano Hana, which is essentially the same concept.

Quite impressed with the first episode. Good to see an anime with adult characters again, and an original story. I have a feeling I'm going to love this one, too bad it's only going to be 11 episodes :3

She's obviously trying to avoid talking/doing something about it. Tomorrow being their anniversary and all. One of the advantages of not having teenage characters and a high school setting is that everything doesn't have to be so overly dramatic.

This is promising. It's obvious where this show is going, and I like it. Stories like this grab me the most. Unless it goes on an extremely unlikely and unexpected direction, I will definitely be following this.
