One of the most hilarious shows I've seen!, 13 July 2006
Author: punky_cupcake90 from United States

Normally shows that have plots like this annoy me, where someplace is haunted and blah blah blah. But this one didn't I took the time to sit down and watch it and it was so funny it made chocolate milk come out of my nose! Though the characters are in elementary school, probably around fifth grade, there is so much adult humor in this show that I couldn't stop laughing. The dialog is well written, witty, and hysterical. The ongoing banter between Satsuki and Hajime are the best I've seen, and if there is any reason to watch the show it's for Hajime! It will make you remember the days when you and your friends went searching for buried treasure, or played games like that! Even though... I've never actually gone into a haunted school house, it would be rather like this show if I did. I recommend anyone who likes anime to grab your best buds, pop some popcorn...make sure your parents arn't home for all the sexual innuendos that you will hear, and be prepared to laugh until you have tears streaming down your cheeks.
