Couldn't understand why Chigusa had a blasé response to having a cat/ghost at first, until you realise from all his actions and reactions that he's really depressed and is just an automaton. Add in Kedama and you've got two depressed people just trying to provide a bit of comfort and happiness.

Unlike OmNom, I actually think there's a lot of subtlety in this title.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The glimpses to Chigusa's wife was painted deliberately negative--arranged marriage, not noticing the deterioration of her health. And yet you've got an important panel with the wife surprising him with the flowers, which tells you a bit that it's turning into a loving relationship. We're also given a glimpse of Kedama's recent abandonment, but dude is in traditional clothing so just imagine how long he's been a ghost. When you're depressed, you don't necessarily remember any of the good things.

It reads a bit like a parable (complete with heavy-handed deus ex machina). Overly dramatic on one hand, and a bit too cutesy on the other (it needed to or else this would've been more sad than it already was), but it reads sincere.

This manga was pretty terrible I can't believe I managed to pull through and finish it. Yes a manga can be bad even if there's nothing controversial about it; must be a hard concept to grasp for some people roll eyes

I don't even know where to begin to describe my gripes; maybe we can start with the main character which the mangaka obviously attempted to make as cute as possible with the girly designs as well as 'innocent' personality only for it to backfire bc he's honestly annoying af in so many ways but I'm gonna stop here and not dive deeper into this for the sake of my sanity. Not to mention the narrative which kept rubbing in our faces about how pitiful and 'tragic' his backstory is; we get it you're sad and lonely bc you were abandoned blah blah blah but repeating it over and over again won't actually move people to sympathise with you; there's a thing called subtlety fyi. But I guess this is more of a problem on the story-telling's side - the author just doesn't know how to transform the story into manga form at all; honestly her delivery is very messy and confusing as well as cliched and cheesy, and you can't really get much worse than that as a mangaka. The panelling is just tragic, and what even are transitions in the book. I lost count of how many times the story just jumped from one scene to another and made no sense. It's all a jumbled mess. There are other things like ineffective introduction of side characters whose almost non-existent purpose did not match the exposure they got and thus averted readers' attention from what should've been the focal point in a scene even more, but I'm done ranting.

I just.. hated everything I've just read; it's just such an awkward attempt at creating a sweet manga and failing miserably at that. Maybe you can start by, idk, writing some likeable characters first before inserting all those out-dated and superficial gimmicks to make them seem cute without investing anything into developing their personalities bc that'll just render them flatter than a piece of paper in the end.
