Ghosts that just doesn't really come to haunt you afterward..., 11 February 2013
Author: Paul Magne Haakonsen from Denmark

As a long time fan of Manga and anime, it is always a joy to stumble upon something new. And I thought that combining Manga with ghosts would be as interesting as the combination of Manga and zombies ("Highschool of the Dead"), but it just didn't fully managed to reach up to that particular level.

"Ghost Hunt" is a nice enough series, but the episodes seem sort of pointless in a way, as they initially all tend to turn out to be fairly much alike. The hauntings are different in each story, sure, but ultimately they turn out to be sort of anti-climatic as they never really turn out to be violent, end in unforetold ways, or anything like a proper horror story would be.

The animation itself is quite nice, and the characters are nicely drawn. Just be warned that there is a fair amount of childish comedy in this series - as to be expected from a Manga. But at times that Mai character turns out to be a nuisance and you just want to tell her to shut up already, because she says annoying things and acts like a child. For a group of professional ghost hunters, then this mixed group of people seem oddly out of tune with the seriousness of their ghostly work.

I had expected something more from this series, especially when it spanned over 25 episodes, but it just never managed to rise up to the level of the "Highschool of the Dead" Manga series, which was just half as many episodes.

If you enjoy ghosts and Manga, you might just find some enjoyment in this series, but personally I found it to be too superficial and never really delving properly into the hauntings and further elaborate on these events. It was just a brushed shallow shell of what it could have been, and that was a shame, because "Ghost Hunt" really had potential for something better.
