So when Shimao gets angry he can make something kinda like earthquake on the floor that his is on? Or more precisely room.

I am so in love with this anime. It's indescribably beautiful in so many ways and- I'm seriously repeating myself every single week but it can't be helped- just... wow. <3 The animation itself may seem low-budget but the story and the characters are beyond awesome. Next episode, please now. >-<

So Shimao wants to posses Hazuki's body eh, I guess he wants to bang Rokka.

Who is the guy who stays in the bathroom with his girlfriend while she is puking, then lays her on the bed and sleeps on the floor? Until today Ive never seen one like that in my whole life.

I'm not dismissing the rest of what you said, but this is a perfect example of how shallow a definition of kind they're using in this show (and in a lot of romances). I'd do this, and have, for my friends any weekend, let alone my girlfriend. If they were super drunk sometimes I even walk home afterwards, because they won't remember and I don't want them to feel bad that I had to take care of them. I wouldn't consider myself an especially nice person, that's just regular friendship.

So he has poltergeist ability that could be troublesome. Yeah I kinda feel sorry for Shimao, but the guy is dead and had his change so I am totally for Hazuki he's the alive one after all.

Hazuki said " I don't mind being second choice all my life" so i bet there is some history from his past which can be interesting.

I really like the ending song and art. I always wanted to have tatto in Alfons Mucha style like the art on the end.

Honestly Hazuki should go for Miho and forget about Rokka, she's not even that pretty.

Ooh, so the ghost is actually a bit of a poltergeist. This should make things more interesting. Not that things aren't already interesting, this anime is already brilliant in my eyes.

I like that this is one of those series where people can look at how the characters act and take sides, and be right on all accounts of interpretation. They all have their strengths and weaknesses and as a result I like their imperfections. The jealousy, awkwardness, it itches at my heart in a not particularly bad way. I hope this is an opportunity for all to grow further in their lives, and not as a result of romance alone.

I can't really blame any of them. But I think Hazuki should really settle Shimao's problems first before moving on. Even though he's a ghost, he's present and he's the only one who can help him. It was really painful to watch Hazuki totally ignoring Shimao and start to get intimate with Rokka... It also for his sake, it isn't really fun to have a ghost watching you doing this and that...

And I fell more and more in love with the ending song each episode.

I do feel really bad for Atsushi, but I can't say matters could have been easy for either of them. Just about the first thing Atsushi did was try to get between Hazuki and Rokka. I could see why Hazuki would have such a hard time wanting to help the ghost. The body borrowing is especially something hard to warm up to considering what he just faced in Atsushi threatening him with bodily harm. I do hope that Hazuki can help Atsushi but it coming so soon wouldn't feel natural to me.

Must say I'm pleasantly surprised at how well,l human this series has turned out to be. One finds it difficult to be able to side with either Shimao or Hazuki since they both have very valid reasons. Most can sympathize with Shimao not being able to move on but then at the same time agree with Hazuki that he must since, well he's dead just what exactly can he do? This series just captures the human heart far too well and it makes for a magical experience full of emotions, can't wait for the next episode!

Well, it seems our ghost has progressed to the poltergeist stage... I guess that counts as character development for a ghost...

This was a good episode. I can't quite wrap my head around Hazuki... At one moment he seems like he has it under control, then he goes and does something like inviting her to the last place she went with her hubby before he went into the hospital to make her smile again? Seems to have backfired...

This is for the people saying crappy things about Shimao.

Look I completely understand that he hasn't lived a full life. He probably hasn't had the opportunity to experience things other people have felt which is partly why he's a bit immature.

I imagine Hazuki will give Shimao the opportunity to posses his body a little later but not right now. Shimao has to deal with certain things before he goes actually receives the opportunity to confront Rokka. Right now all he wants to do is touch Rokka and tell her how much he misses her. I don't see any signs of closure for himself or for her especially since Rokka herself hasn't moved on from her past quite yet.

I anticipate the series will give Shimao the chance to reflect on what he wants to do if he does get the opportunity to speak with her.

In any case, I still support Hazuki.

We need some ghost busters up in this bitch. Shimao is a big fat sore loser and a baby who throws temper tantrums.

I don't know whose side I'm in anymore.

The three of them should move the fuck on. I know it's sad, but it won't do any good to either shimao or rokka to keep living in the past and longing for things that are NEVER COMING BACK, jesuschrist. Also, Hazuki, why are so this stubborn? We all know he, hazuki, loves her but he doesn't even know her, and so far all she has done is play with his feelings and then going all like "oh righ, my husband is dead... i miss him crycry". I know she won't just forget about shimao in a day and then start loving hazuki and act like nothing happened but in my opinion it's ridiculous to try to be HIM... Asking her to the same park? WHY?! Make new stuff together, create new memories, he doesn't need to be a replacement!

They all piss me off beyond end, but I'll keep watching just because at the same time they sadden me so much.

Frankly, I don't support either of them at the moment. They're both possessive and jealous and are simply looking at Rokka as a prize to be won, barely even considering her feelings. I hope this is a show about their growth, because they're both annoying. However, if nothing gets resolved and this show goes with NTR end, it would be terrible but hilarious. Imagine if Shimao was forced to watch the two of them without moving on? Man, that would be cruel.

Speaking of which, were they actually going to have sex on the bed? Already? Damn. These two move fast.

At any rate, this series can only end with Hazuki and Rokka being together, obviously. Since, you know, Shimao's a ghost. Can't say I understand why people are choosing sides in the first place.

On a side note, I wonder if Hazuki will ever tell Rokka that he can see her dead husband. Possibly a bit insensitive...

My heart is so not ready for this anime! I am really starting to sympathize with all 3 of the main characters.

Temper tantrums aside, I get Shimao. If Rokka hadn't screamed for Shimao not to leave her before he died, he would probably be resting in peace right now. Shimao is still around because of Rokka. I can't even begin to imagine the hurt he must have felt while watching his wife get cuddly in bed with another man. He's probably thinking, "I'm here because you begged me not to leave you, and this is what I get to see you do?"

I'm feeling for Hazuki because I believe he's VERY lonely and Rokka is probably the first woman that's captured his heart in such a way. What a blow to your ego when it's a ghost that's beating your time! Also, I believe when

And as for Rokka, I believe she really wants to fall in love with Hazuki (I actually believe she has already), but she's so incredibly devoted to Shimao and his memory that any attempts at moving forward probably make her feel guilty. This makes me feel even worse for Hazuki because he's getting swung around by both of them.

One minute Rokka's kissing him and running away; the next minute she's sending more "positive" signals by hugging him and getting all snuggly in her bed; and then...

Forget Rokka, Hazuki, and just date me!!! ^__^

I wonder why Shimao isn't moving things in front of Rokka. Let her knows he's there.
And I would never let a ghost posses me even for 5 minutes. So it's great Hizuki won't either, since there's no guarantee he would get his body back.

Sounds like the worst award anyone can ever receive LOL

Shimao's sister is really pretty. I like her, appearance-wise, more than Rokka. Even her personality is better too.
