Another ghost anime favorite from Toei Animation
3 October 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Here is another anime series from Toei Animation I found awesome! I'm a fan of Toei's anime films and series. So after seeing pictures online, I know this series would be another anime favorite. Also I was looking for more ghost/yōkai anime to watch.

Now this series revolves around the vivacious and stingy Reiko Mikami, who is a exorcist known as a "Ghost Sweeper." Along with her two assistants: the perverted teen Tadao Yokoshima and the ghost girl Okinu, they undergo dangerous jobs of exorcising the vast numbers of homeless spirits due the city's overpopulation. You know I think Reiko is up there along with Betty Boop, Cutie Honey and DC Comics' Starfire as cartoon's sexiest girls.

Anyway, I love this series' great animation, humor and chilling thrills; that is all I have to say.
