A truly excellent series
13 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Gakkô no kaidan/Ghost Stories begins with Miyanoshita Satsuki and her brother Keiichirou moving to their late mother's hometown. They discover that their mother was an exorcist who sealed away many evil spirits. However due to urban developments the spirits are being released. Together with her brother and her new friends, Momoko, Hajime and Reo, Satsuki takes up the task of protecting the town and sealing the spirits away again.

The series is quite frankly, brilliant. The animation is superb, the characters are interesting and likable (besides Hajime's 'bad habit') and the story lines are thrilling. Every episode had me on the edge of my seat. One thing in particular is that the gang are 'just kids.' They have no super powers, no gadgets or weapons of any kind (other than the Ghost Diary belonging to Satsuki's mother than contains information on the ghosts). Despite that they repeatedly take on supernatural evil and prevail. The audience really cares about them, worries for them and is delighted when they finally save the day.

My favourite character personally is Satsuki's best friend Momoko. She is polite, sweet and kind-hearted, yet almost completely fearless when it comes to confronting evil forces.

The writing is also top-notch, with each episode managing to provide genuine chills without having to resort to gratuitous violence or blood-letting.

Why the English dubbers chose to make the dub a parody series is beyond me. Watch the real thing, in Japanese with subtitles. It is much better.
