Anime/Manga/Novel where the Protagonist is dead?

So, my sister and I were talking about how Kamen Rider Ghost is a lot like an anime, and so I wondered if there were actually any with a similar premise, involving the protagonist being dead and fighting for a chance to come back to life?
For the record, I’d rather not count anything harem-y or like an isekai, as I’ve seen rather a lot lately, and want a detox! Love Triangles might be okay though.
Time is known to heal all wounds, and it would - if only it could.
Yet these wounds cannot be healed, with permanent scars they have been sealed
Locked inside is all the pain, which cannot be washed away even by the heaviest rain.
If only you could feel how much it hurts, yet I would not wish that upon even the cursed.
The pain is a dagger which stabs my heart, and pricks it every second till it tears apart.
Like a flower whose petals have died, all I feel is emptiness inside
Though for you my heart weeps a river of blood, you are not to be blamed for this flood.
Iím letting you go, even though you were never mine.
It was my mistake to think this could be just fine.

Letting Go

If I remember correctly, Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas has something like that. Maybe you could even count Full Metal Alchemist, where one of the protagonists is only an affixed soul that wants his body back. Also Monogatari Series has some of that somewhere in there.

First thing I thought of was Yu Yu Hakusho, but that's only the prologue leading to him gaining his powers and job.

In a sense Shakugan no Shana also has a protagonist who's "dead" (or in this case, had his existence consumed and the MC is really just an "object" put there to hold the place and keep the repercussions of his disappearance from being too big). He doesn't really aim to come back though, although early on he is afraid of fading and disappearing. Doesn't have a harem per se. Mild love triangle between the main heroine and a classmate, maybe one or two other girls with some interest who are never able to even get close enough for that, but mostly it's all about the main pair.
