Very funny and ORIGINAL anime!
21 August 2000 | by (Orilab) – See all my reviews

I finally got "A Chinese Ghost Story" on DVD and is well-worth it too!

It has everything I can hope for in animation:a strange,un-predictable storyline,bizarre characters,off-the-wall (and sometimes sick) humour,rock-opera-like music score(it is NOT Disney-like!)and interesting and successful combination of CG and Traditional Animation(which is a nice first in Anime).

If you want an Anime worth your time,please,get this classic now.But personally,I'd prefer the DVD version,since you can get Cantonese and Mandarin dialogue on it(personally,I prefer Cantonese) and you don't have to get stuck with the horrid English version(sorry,but the English "vocal-talents" need to take some singing lessons!).
