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 ago.
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,
no overly dramatic situations or awkward/wimpy acting on part of the characters. Just how two people live together everyday. Almost each chapter has its own short-story.
Now this manga contains several ecchi scenes but they are gracefully executed (compared to other similar mangas) and this blends in with the romance element fairly well. Nothing like the cheap fan service you would get from your typical ecchi/shounen manga. Also, don't think you'll get the same disgusting stuff that you get from your average hentai.
Characters are pretty decent. Each have a nice personality which remains pretty consistent throughout the manga. Steady character development is present and nothing seems rushed.
The art is good too, a bit different from your average look. I personally liked it, especially how the mangaka drew Kana: who looks very appropriately drawn, fitting her character/personality perfectly.
Overall, I found it to be better than the others in its genre. The slow pace and calm setting was a breath of fresh air from your average "OMG! he did this, she did that" kind of romance manga and this was exactly what I was seeking. The relationship between the main characters is relatively well-developed and leaves you feeling peaceful after each chapter. I liked it so much that I avoided reading the last 2 chapters for 10 months just so that it wouldn't end soon.
Read it if you're looking for something different; calming, slice of life-ish in a romance manga. Definitely a 10 as it simply out-shines its competitors in the sea of romance mangas that we see today.

That shit is the premise of this series on MAL. I think it's a bit misleading (read;retarded), so I will start by making it more accurate,
Daikichi-kun finds a fucking house where he can live, it's free and in good condition. There lives a young, sexy, ghost girl in that house. She wants to fuck Daikichi all day long. Daikichi is far from lucky.
The premise still sounds darker, way dirtier and more dramatic than
it actually is. You see; Kana is slice of life series which doesn't have a start nor end, it isn't brilliant at all, not well-written nor well-developed, and certainly not using all of its potentiality. Now you may think "Then what the effin hell makes this Kana so good then?" The answer is way simple; happiness of the characters.
My Lovely Ghost Kana is a series which is about sex, love, some other beautiful things, and sex. All in all the happiness of two people, executed in the most beautiful way. It's sweet, pure (yes) and gives some nice vibes. Might make you horny, really. And jealous. But then you remeber that Daikichi is far from lucky, after all, all he has is a free house and mutual love. (sarcasm if mainstream can't tell)
Now you have probably some sorta picture of this series, and my mental state, but still don't know will you enjoy the series, yes? I will make it simple,
Q; Do I need to be a pervert to like it?
A; You need to understand the difference between sex and porn to be able to see how beautiful the series is. If you don't see any difference, then you will probably think it's shit and will pollute your brains because you are special.. in the retarded way.
Q; Y u no say anything about the art?
A; It's beautiful, very clear, soft and simple, thus very fitting to the series and its atmosphere.
Q; The series doesn't have a start nor end, and it has hardly any story, so what's the point on reading something like that?
A; Because it makes you feel good if you have a soul. Gingers. QQ
Q; I didn't like your review, should I feel bad?

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
end that you dont get much of a story for, and you will realy wish you did, but thats really my only gripe i have
my enjoyment... when i picked this up when it only had 1 volume, i thought that was going to be the end, than volume 2 came and i was SO happy, but didn't know what else it could do, well, it showed me. than volume 2 ended and you knew there would be more. and volume 3, i was so scared it would have one of those sad but good endings, it didnt, THIS MANGA ENDS HAPPY. you have any idea HOW RARE it is for a manga to be GREAT beginning to end? this is quite possably be the most perfect manga i ever read.
for me this is an over all 10, must read, classic, but i cant help but feel like there is just something missing. and dont get me wrong there are missing things like when you have to ask why? what happened? and you are never given an explanation, but im not talking about those.
if you have time to kill, and dont mind seeing sex in a manga PICK THIS UP NOW you could do far worse.
Ill be honest here, I was just going to read this just because every once in a while I love smuts.
But then the manga itself takes a turn for the better. It wasn't just the sex, it's the characters behind it also. Then the manga sucks you into it's very positive atmosphere and you just can't stop reading it.
I'm not going to lie, I was so scared those two were going to argue at some point and or something tragic would happen. Even though it's episodic, it is rather depressing. But you do appreciate it! The ending was very cute, the couple is very
cute. Everything about this manga is just a masterpiece.
I'm glad they stopped it before it was too late, people said it had potential. I'm saying they would have ruined it if they continued.
If you want something with a very lively and happy couple that wasn't meant to be then read this manga. It's very refreshing and I would recommend it to anyone.... over 18. :)
I've already re-read it 3 times. 7mil over and out!
