I am enjoying it too. Shimao isn't a creeper, his wife Rokka cried, "don't leave me alone! " so he has stuck around.

I am waiting for them to communicate through Ryousuke.

Each episode gets better. The tension was definitely ratcheted up this episode. Who knows what Shimao will do next? He's definitely desperate. And poor Rokka. I don't think she's ever come to terms with her loss.

When an anime revolves around only 4 characters, the characters have to be good or the series will crash and burn. So far, I'm very happy I started watching this.

Nah, hes definitely a creeper. He can see his widow is starting to have feelings for Ryosuke, or at least confused by her feelings. And Shimao is acting like hes still alive and trying to keep other guys from seeing her. He should be looking out for her happiness and making sure she is fine before leaving, instead he wasnt to stay with her, which will just make her miserable. She needs to bury him mentally so she can move on, its part of the grieving process.

So, to me, hes a creeper.

But then, only time will tell what happens with the series.

It's good, but not as good as Sakamichi no Apollon.. Although the recent episode wasn't that good of Natsuyuki

I think he will move on once she says she doesn't need him anymore. She is still stuck on her husband even though she seems like she would like to become involved with Ryousuke. She needs to throw out her dead flowers but she still hangs onto them...

Now, the body takeover request was creepy, I will agree there!

Yep, I agree. And I think that Ryousuke will end up being their medium too. But Rokka has her feelings to sort out first. While I enjoy the adult way sex and relationships are portrayed, it doesn't change the fact that jumping into bed with a younger man will help you forget about your dead husband. To me, Rokka is obviously struggling with her feelings for Shimao and her developing ones for Ryousuke.

But, this show is totally cute, and I'm really enjoying it. Shimao is obviously the more attractive of the two men (physically) but there's something about Ryousuke's hostile stare and adolescent charms. Here's hoping Ryousuke can hold out!

I agree with your agreement Rokka needs to choose, I have a feeling Ryousuke will wait, wouldn't be much of a story otherwise BUT it also seems like the sister in law has the hots for him, going out drinking with him. This could turn into a love quadrangle very quickly...

I too wish there were more adult (grown up, not ecchi) characters and stories in anime. I enjoy the high school stuff too but the mysterious transfer student cliche, clubs, school council, etc. are turning into a joke, the shows are even breaking the fourth wall to laugh about it and other high school harem comedy cliches. Adult romance shows are sorely needed for those of us not replying to the "do you ever talk back to your teacher?" topics LOL

This anime is starting to remind me of Bokura Ga Ita due to the sorting out of feelings theme.

I adore this series. caught my attention at the first episode. I think it might have been because of the grown up romance. And not some teenage romance that we see in pretty much every anime that comes out nowadays. And since they're adults there is less of that shyness factor which sometimes bugs me. Can't wait for the next episode!

One thing I like about this title is the character development aside from the fact that characters are adult , not high schoolers for a change.
