Synopsis:

Daikichi is the epitome of unlucky. He's just lost his job, and what's worse, he unknowingly moves into an apartment where a girl once committed suicide. Though as luck would have it, he discovers that she's still floating around, and is a lovely, kind ghost – the kind of ghost that Daikichi quickly falls in love with, physical body or not. Together, the two live day to day, having sex at every opportunity, and slowly falling deeper and deeper into love.

Ai-Ren is what Itoshi no Kana might have been if it wasn't all about sex. Both series feature a depressed male lead and some out of ordinary girl who comforts him, however Ai-Ren is by no means a H series (though there are some mature themes there).

hoffstyle

Itoshi no Kana, much like Ai-Ren, uses a preternatural being (Ai-Ren being a genetically modified human and Itoshi no Kana using a ghost) to convince a character on the edge of death to find a way to accept life as it is and live. The difference between these two manga being Daikichi of Itoshi no Kana wants to die, Ikuru of Ai-Ren is dying.

Once again Yutaka Tanaka crafts a love story out of a sad and melancholy backdrop while maintaining a sense of hope and happiness.

Sundome

Sundome

Hideo Aiba is anything but popular. Not only is he a high school virgin, he's also a part of the "Roman Club" – a group of guys with bizarre fetishes. But Hideo's unusual school life is changed forever when the mysterious Kurumi transfers into his class, joining the Roman Cub soon thereafter. Together, the two begin a strained and pleasurable relationship where Kurumi controls Hideo's very desires... and actions.

If you're looking for a borderline H title that revolves around sex (or in Sundome's case, stopping just short of it), these two titles are for you.

CouruseL

Both Itoshi no Kana and Sundome have some erotic(Itoshi no Kana) or s&m(Sundome) related scenes. In both history revolves around unconfident/dissapointed in life guy who meets a girl and after that everything starts to change.

Chobits

Chobits

Nineteen-year-old ronin Hideki Motosuwa desires two things more than anything else: a girlfriend, and an expensive humanoid computer (known as a 'persocom'). But with his dead-end job and no financial aid from his parents, owning a persocom seems impossible... until he finds a blond-haired female persocom tied up amongst a pile of trash! After getting her home and figuring out how to activate her, even the computer-illiterate Hideki realizes there is something unusual when it appears she can only say one word - Chii. Is she just broken, or is there more to this persocom than her behavior lets on?

Chobits has a similar basic theme, with a similar relationship between the protagonist and the love interest. Chobits is only ecchi, not smut, so there is little to no sex in it, but the concept is similar: a down-on-his-luck and depressed boy moves into a new apartment and finds an innocent and otherworldly girl who lives with him there. The focus on the relationship between Hideki and Chii are similar to the two in this manga, but with a stronger plot backing it up and distracting from just them all the time. If you like the concept of Itoshi no Kana but get tired of the constant sex or would like a somewhat deeper or more epic plot, then Chobits is definitely a manga to try out...and if you enjoy their interaction and all the ecchi/near-H, then Chobits has enough of that as well to give the same feel as Itoshi no Kana.

Koibana Onsen

When Akiyama booked a vacation for him and his girlfriend at Koibana Onsen – a place known for helping unite couples both mentally and physically – he had no idea that they’d break up days before the trip. After arriving solo and meeting the onsen’s three sisters, not to mention getting the ‘special treatment’ from each of them to help him feel at home, Akiyama decides to stay and work part time. Now, with one of the sisters as his newfound girlfriend, Akiyama will work together with the trio to help make each couple’s visit a pleasurable and exciting success, in addition to losing his virginity and discovering the ultimate pleasure himself…

While Itoshi does have a romance subplot (and I say subplot given it's definitely secondary to the nonstop sex), both of these manga focus almost entirely on explicit sex. So if you liked it in one, read the other.

Virgin na Kankei

Virgin na Kankei

While performing a delivery to a beautiful woman’s apartment one night, twenty-five-year-old Kimijima finds himself in the arms – and loins – of his customer, the newly-divorced Kana-san. The next morning Kimijima heads to an interview, only to find that one of his interviewers is Kana-san herself! Now, Kimijima must work hard at his new job while having ample sexual encounters with not only Kana, but hostesses, fellow interviewees and old friends (at least in his dreams) - to say the least!  However, to make things more complicated, Kimijima finds himself falling for Kana...
