For those of you who don't know Ghost Stories was originally realesed in Japan a few years ago as essentially a little kids show. It's kinda like "Scooby Doo" or something, you now the senario, little kids fight ghosts, blah blah blah, clich'e, clich'e, it's all been done before. However when the show was brought to America a couple of changes were made. Basically the people at ADV films saw it fitting to change the script entirely form it's original version. Basically the story's are the same it's just the dialogue centered around the story that's altered. And believe me it was a good idea, because "Ghost Stories" is probably the funniest anime Ive ever seen.
For those of you who have bought the first volume of Ghost Stories and thought that was funny, wait till you see this. Ghost Stories, without a doubt, will definitely be one of those series that just keeps on getting funnier and funnier as it progresses with each volume. Heres a review of each episode:
Episode five: Episode five was great. It was mainly about Keichero(I cant spell his name), competing in the school sports vestival. But of course theres an angry ghost on the loose who apparently likes to collect the feet of the runner running in lane four, which spells trouble for the gang. This episode was truely funny. The line about the cripps stealing Kechero's shoes was hysterical. I don't know why but it's always really funny when little kids say things they really arn't supposed to say, it just is. As usual the humor was very Topical here, and just about all of it hits the mark, Ghost Stories has a nack for that. I have to say though one thing about GS is the fact that you really cant watch the show with a very limited knowledge of pop culture.Read more ›
Secondly, the story stats strong and they stick to the plot. I can't speak for the Japanese version but the American version, the plot is solid.
Thirdly, if you are a fan of the anime series "Chrono Crussade", you will be pleased to know, two of the voice acotrs from Chrono Crussade" are in "Ghost Stories" which are Hilary Hoag(Sister Rosette) and Greg Ayers(Chrono). It is very easy to identify which character's voices they are.
Another reason I like this anime is because of the extras on the disc. If you go to the extras and clikc the ghost profiles, they give you a summary of the ghosts they use in the anime. These ghosts are famous ghost stoires and legends in Japan. I particullarly like it because I like learning about different ghost sotires from different places. I also like that the characters are becoming more developed through storyline. If you like the first volume of Ghost Stories, pick up the second volume. You won't be disappointed.

Love the satire. But the earlier series were not as funny as season 4 and 5. Wait for them to drop under $15.Published on May 8, 2013 by B. Jordan
