Kirara is an adaptation of the 1993-1997 six-volume manga by Toshiki Yui, an artist best-known for romantic comedy manga featuring sexy teenage/early 20s girls with a lot of pulchritudinous “fan service”. Kirara mixed a little fantasy into lớn the formula.

I can’t see that this story makes a lot of sense. Kirara Imai, her pal Eingươi, & Konpei Asai are three 18-year-old high-school students. The shy Eimi asks Kirara to lớn get Konpei khổng lồ take her out on a date. Over the years Kirara và Konpei fall in love sầu themselves. When Kirara is 24, she is driving to her wedding with Konpei when she is killed in an automobile accident. Kirara’s ghost goes six years inkhổng lồ the past khổng lồ help her 18-year-old self win Konpei.

Well, this is what it says. It looks lớn me more lượt thích a four-way thắm thiết entanglement, with both the 24- & 18-year-old Kiraras, Eimày, và Konpei. Since this is a comic fantasy, it apparently isn’t supposed to be logical. I may have sầu overthought this, but since Kirara’s & Konpei’s six-year-romance seems to lớn have sầu developed normally enough, why does her 24-year-old ghost have sầu to “help out”? Especially since the ghost seems more to be deliberately driving them apart than helping them get together. Would Eingươi have sầu remained so interested if the fascination of Kirara’s ghost wasn’t involved? Presumably Eimày did not get Arthur the exorcist and his assistant Mita lớn exorcise Kirara’s ghost originally, so vì they really help out the romance? And how realistic are two highly-skilled but still amateurish high-school exorcists?

Incidentally, Eimi’s, Arthur’s, and Mita’s assuming that Kirara’s ghost is evil & trying khổng lồ exorcise her is more than slightly reminiscent of Tōei Dōga’s first feature in 1958, Hakuja-Den, a.k.a The Tale of the White Serpent, a.k.a The White Snake Enchantress, known outside Japan as Panda and the Magic Serpent, where the officious “Magic Wizard” insists on exorcising “Princess” Ba-Niang despite nobody toàn thân wanting hyên ổn to lớn.

What this OAV does not answer, & I would like to know, is what happens khổng lồ Kirara’s ghost after the kết thúc of this story? Does she disappear và “go to lớn Heaven”? She didn’t really have any “unfinished business” that she needed lớn go inlớn the past for in the first place. Does she stay with the 18-year-old Kirara và Konpei as a ménage à trois for six years? She says that she “wants khổng lồ stay with Konpei always”, but what about the 24-year-old Konpei that she was just about to marry? How did she affect what happened between Eimày and Konpei, and how did Eimi fade out of the relationship originally? Were Eingươi, Arthur, and Mita finally dissuaded from trying to lớn exorcise Kirara’s ghost? If so, what was the future relationship between Arthur, Mita, & the ghost? I can’t imagine that the two ghostbusters would just thua interest in a genuine ghost, even if Kirara is a “good” ghost not needing exorcising.

Oh, well. Ashi Productions produced this for Toho distribution in nhật bản. No U.S. distribution is listed. You can really tell by Kirara’s name on the Japanese audio traông chồng why the Japanese have sầu trouble telling “l” and “r” apart. Her name could just as easily be Kilala in English.
