Greatest comedic horror since the Addam's Family
11 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the most entertaining show i have EVER seen. i watched it with some friends, and we were instantly hooked. We couldn't help but watch all 13 episodes all at once. It was such a great series, almost all of us bought it soon after we watched it. The "making of" episodes are highly entertaining as well.

This show is very creative, it took many traditional Japanese themes and was able to blend them into a comedic modern setting seamlessly. The actors were all phenomenal in this show, and there was a huge array of personalities.

I would recommend this to any fan of the Addam's Family, or anyone looking for a laugh with an occult twist.
