3 - How can Sakura see ghosts?

If a human eats any food while in the afterlife, they will be able to see ghosts for the rest of their lives. Tamako knew this, but it slipped her mind after saving Sakura from the Damashigami, and she bought her some bekkoame without thinking.

4 - Why wasn't a chapter published in Shonen Sunday 2010 Vol. 6, 11 and 12?

Not counting the breaks Takahashi takes from Shonen Sunday between the end of one series and the beginning of another, she had never missed a single issue of the magazine since her eight issue break from 1988/1989 due to appendicitis. As for the reason for missing these three issues, it has not yet been revealed.
