A great item for an educational tool for the whole family.
But with each successive episode the set degenerates into almost NO engineering! It's true! The screen time instead is taken over by PEOPLE and their petty problems or nonsense. For example, in Venice Flood Gates, they have some worker sing us a song. Huh? Huh? I did not buy the set to listen to Italians sing (badly). I purchased it for, ah, ENGINEERING. By way of contrast, there is another show out there on the Venice flood gates, and the difference is astounding. The latter minutely details the engineering behind the project, and with incredible graphics. Instead, this idiotic show has singing and long, pointless scenes (like a worker driving to the job!).
The producers apparently thought that incredible engineering projects were not enough to engage the viewer. So the whole set is jazzed up like an MTV special, and soap operas replace engineering.
This set should be titled: THE TRIVIAL STORIES OF THE PEOPLE...who build big things.
Unfortunately, the series is not dubbed, and that may irk some. But after watching it, I'm glad it remained subbed. The voice work in this release is amazing, and I can't imagine any American dub coming close to it. The Japanese Seiyu are incredible, and it would have been impossible to replicate their work.
This is one of Studio IG's 20th Anniversary Show Pieces, so they spared no expense on it. The visuals in this series are outstanding. The animation is crisp and bright. The colors are vibrant, and the motion very fluid for an anime series.
I also happen to love psychology, and I really respect the amount of research they put into this show. They must have spent a lot of time researching actual mental illnesses and disorders, and it really shows in Ghost Hound.
Everything about this show screams quality, and it's one that belongs in your collection. It's easily one of the best releases of 2009!
the coloration is almost like watercolor - and maybe it is.
an unusual, mysterious story, that fundamentally involves the viewer with the potential of something beyond...
music, pacing, characters, all contribute to an experience both entertaining & inspirational.

Each of the eight episodes is so well done. They could all easily be watched a second time. Highly recommended.Published on September 26, 2013 by Gary Dehrer
Even though some of my high school students get bored with parts of the content, it is a great blend of history and science and engineering and everything!!!Published on May 9, 2010 by Jane M. Edwards
I am a high school teacher. I bought this movie for my physics class. I had to turn it off about ten minutes into it because of all the horrible language that was in it. Read morePublished on March 10, 2010 by Stacy Burlison
