A young man falls in love with an older woman who works at a flower shop. He takes a part time job at the shop to get closer to her, and discovers that she’s a widow. Her husband is a ghost that only he can see.
I mentioned in my season preview that I thought this would be terrible because it was a romance in a flower shop. Well, I was wrong. This actually looks pretty promising.
First of all, we actually have a woman in anime who isn’t a 16-year old pure virgin. (Ok, well they still present her as a pure virgin even though she was married, but whatever, we’re making progress.) She does seem like a bit of a wet towel so far who just gets tossed between men, but I’ll give the show the benefit of the doubt and assume that’s just because we don’t know much about her yet.
The main character doesn’t have the courage to act on his crush until the dead husband starts taunting him. I guess he’s the kind of guy who is most inspired when things are a competition. Even if the competition is dead. If there’s no competition though, he just sits around and waits.
The way there’s a ghost that only one person can see reminds me a bit of Ginban Kaleidoscope’s setup. At the moment, I think I may be more interested in what happens between these two guys than in what happens with the girl.
