I saw this anime at a friend's house one night during 2016 or 2017. I have been searching for it for the past three years but I was never able to find it. I have previously posted this onto both Reddit and MAL to no avail, and the friend in question could not remember its name either.

I remember it being a slice-of-life comedy shojo taking place in a high school where the main character was a shy teenage ghost girl who (possibly) made plants die when she touched them. She was most likely a western-inspired ghost and not a traditional Japanese/Chinese ghost/yokai/mononoke/jiangshi/ro-lang. The show had a non-stylized late 00's/early 10's post-Lucky-Star art style. The show did not focus much on how the lead died or why she was a ghost, just on character-character interactions and humor derived from her magical abilities.

I remember two specific scenes from what little I saw of it: One where where she hides under a concert stand polishing a skull during a school festival because she's too shy to perform (or something like that) and a secondary character tries to pull her out; and another where a male character is trying to clean the walls of their bathroom but keeps getting disinfectant in his eyes which turns into a non-canonical segment where a chibi version of the female lead teaches the audience why you should never spray disinfectant above eye level.

This anime is most likely not Dusk Maiden of Amnesia, but the design of the female lead is definitely closer to my memory than all the anime I have looked through so far. However, its style of animation and humor is significantly different from what I remember. The anime I'm looking for did not have a horror-inspired art style, and did not sexualize the lead remotely as much (or at all, even).

It is DEFINITELY NOT:

  • Ghost Hunt
  • Ghost Stories
  • Elegant Yokai Apartment Life
  • Mieruko-chan
  • Anohana
  • Natsume's Book of Friends
  • Ghost Hound
  • Bakemonogatari
  • Another
  • Mushishi

I have only ever seen this anime for 30-50 minutes and my memory might not be entirely correct so please suggest anything that seems close. Also, I do not remember if the show was Chinese in origin. I only knew Chinese at that time and cannot remember whether or not the subtitles were turned on (it could also have been a Chinese dub).
