Editorial Reviews

Bunnies, dead cabbies, and dolls…oy vey! When Hajime volunteers Satsuki for pet duty at school, she raises the ire of a fellow student—who, in turn, raises a certain rabid rabbit from the grave Good thing there’s a cabbie to get them the hell out of there! (Though, it’d be even better if that cabbie wasn’t some life-sucking ghoul with a nasty skin condition.) Add to these elementary menaces, demonic dolls with a really perverted idea of playtime, and a ghost nurse with a disturbing bedside manner, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of what insane, spooky, and hysterical hijinks that await you in the most gleefully controversial and gut-bustingly funny anime you’ve ever seen.

A Kid's Review
I was a huge fan of Ghost Stories from the second I began watching it, and it pleases me to say that the series just keeps on getting better and better. For all of you reading this review I'm not going to go into the whole script changing explanation manly because if your reading a review for volume. 3 of a TV series, you probably already know what the whole thing is about, so yea.

Heres a review for each episode:

Episode 9: In episode 9 Hajime volenteers Sasuki for pet Duty at the school, however Satsuki is not alone to take care of the animals, she has Mio Imai, who has been caretaker of the animals for the past few years at the school, to help her. But catastrophe strikes when Shirotabi, a rabbit previously owned by the school rises from the dead, is this a freak occurence or is someone behind this freak occurence?

Yea, so that's basically the plot of the episode, and boy what an episode it was. It was extremely hilarious, as usual, but actually for once there was no Amanojaku in it whatsoever, but thats just for one episode.

Grade: A+

Episode 10: Episode 10 is basically about a tunnel that's haunted by a cab driver who died there previously before hand, and of course, in short, the gang has to put him to spiritual sleep before they are sucked into the spirit world.

Yea, I know, that was kind of a crummy plot summary, but it's good enough I guess. Anyway, this episode was once again hilarious and gave each cast member equal parts in the episode, which was good considering besides Satsuki and Hajime the other cast members weren't in it as much in the last episode. Still once again, awesome episode, hilarious.

Grade: A+

Episode 11: Episode 11 starts off with Keicherro finding a doll in the trash can.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have become a voice actors fan with this volume! February 25, 2006
By TOMO
When you see this volume, you might feel that's like another film stuff, "Pet cemetery" or "Child's play" for example... some of these episodes are actually pretty alike.
but sure, this is not imitation, because this is based on stories of Japanese children's Rumors for long years, they have been influenced in unconsciously from grown-ups told these classic scary story's script.
anyway, I appreciate the working of the ADV and voice actors and voice actress to amuse me, it's very very funny!
I enjoyed bran-new scary comedy storis!
I can't wait for the next volume.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghost Stories VOL 3 April 20, 2012
Verified Purchase
Not for kids this should be rated MA. This is a 5 DVD set I already have the other 4 and needed this one to complete the set. This is a very funny series for both teens and adult. Well worth owning the complete set. PS the english dub is very well done.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Sophomore...er... Junior Slump June 21, 2006
Whenever something really good comes along, expectations for the follow-up are extremely high. Whenever these expectations aren't met, the term used to describe it is "sophomore slump." Seeing as the second volume of Ghost Stories was about as funny as you can get, it was inevitable that a dip in quality show up at some part of the series. In Ghost Stories vol 3: Junior Jitters, the dip is here and boy is it steep. While most of the episodes have their moments of laugh-out-loud humor, the humor to non-humor ratio is seriously unbalanced. The problem seems to be that in this batch of episodes, the original intent was more or less to pull on the heart strings so the all the jokes just don't mesh well with two of the episodes. The episodes about the ghost of the dead cab-driver and the death of Satsuki's mother have some funny jokes, but most of the humor just falls flat. The episodes that aren't trying to get the viewers bawl like a pregnant woman watching lifetime, are a little better but never reach the humor factor of previous volumes. One of these episodes involves a animal obsessed girl reviving a dead rabbit ala Pet Cemetary and the other finds Satsuki being harassed by an evil doll.

As Ghost Stories is an episodic series, I think that if you are on a tight budget you could definitely skip this volume. On the whole it's meh.
