5.0 out of 5 stars Pee Your Pants, Too. Nov. 26 2008
By EL - Published on Amazon.com

The year was 2005. It was the year of Batman Begin-ning, Resident Evil returning for the fourth time, and Stephen Colbert taking the nation by storm. At the ADV offices, the guys in charge of buying licenses were getting pissed-drunk in celebration of the 6th re-release of the Platinum Evangelion edition DVDs. In their inebriated states, they somehow purchased the rights to release a God-awful, cheesey, cliched kids show about ghosts. After the rays of morning (and the passing of their massive hangovers) had brought their folly to light, these intrepid office workers desperately sought to find some way of saving their all too doomed jobs and keeping their 401k's.

Thankfully, desperation often breeds genius, and this is the case with Ghost Stories. With the dub, they decided to get rid of the original script's dialogue and transform the somewhat morbid children's genre drama and turn it into an over the top and hilarious comedy. Make no mistake, this is not kid's stuff. This is adult humor at its bawdiest. If the idea of elementary school kids trash talking about sex, the mentally handicapped, homosexuals, religion, sex, beastiality, sex, the nation's broken health care system, sex, and old people offends you greatly, then this is not the show for you. Go watch some high-brow anime like Kino's Journey or some Miyazaki. This is low-brow gutter humor at its gourmet finest.

THINGS THAT MAY OFFEND: Kids cursing; numerous pre-teen panty shots, dead animals; dead people; dead animals having sex with dead people (kidding, maybe); anti-Christian rhetoric; anti-Jewish rhetoric; anti-Muslim rhetoric; anti-EVERYBODY rhetoric; gay retarded little brothers; dead lesbian mothers; evil talking cats; a fifth-grade boy who sounds like a 30 year old but retains the horniness of said fifth-grade boy; disturbingly hot female ghosts (don't judge me); more pop culture references than Buffy the Vampire Slayer and a new Doctor Who episode penned by Russel T. Davies COMBINED.

By XIRUS - Published on Amazon.com
OMG! This has to be the funniest anime of all time! I have seen this on Anime network about 3 times. I am now buying the complete DVD set. If you like your humor racy, don't mind the F-Bomb being blasted out from time to time and listening to every ethnic group or stereotype being made fun of, then this DVD set is for you. You will laugh your freaking head off. I still cannot stop suggesting this to my friends. I am buying this DVD set so I can have a viewing party over some brewskies. It is great watching the reaction of 1st time viewers of this series. I am chuckling inside just thinking about the reactions. LMAO LMAO LMAO and some more LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars In the tradition of Woodie Allen's What's Up Tiger Lily July 25 2010

Probably one of the most hilarious things you'll ever see. A bunch of English anime dubbers decided to throw in their own jokes when the time came to localize this and the result is priceless. I don't even like anime and I couldn't stop laughing for days. Jokes range from shock value to pop culture to 4th wall breaking to the truly clever. Check out "Ghost Stories clips" on youtube to see for yourself.

Just don't make the mistake of buying this for little kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's Up, Ghost Stories? :) May 24 2010
By Andrew C. Johnston - Published on Amazon.com

In this great little release that fits right on the shelf, is a perfectly hilarious thing. Hearkening back to Woody Allen's "What's Up, Tiger Lily?", and perhaps even the spirit of "Fractured Flickers", the main thing about this release is that the folks at ADV have delivered a great little bundle of reworked hilarity just about completely revising, rewriting, and improvising a "new" English dub over the original Japanese. The dub on this set is great in that not only does it work in modern pop culture references, including "LOST" (!) but also makes it fit into the story arc!

This release is not for the kiddies, but for college humor, and/ or people that like their humor rich and raw! It's a relieving take on ordinary dubs, and I highly recommend brushing up on other self-reflexive titles like the above, if you haven't already! The original Japanese dub is fair and square, has its share of insight, but becomes practically bland when compared to this English dub. For fans of self-reflexive, absurdist humor, this is a must!

This show, while good in its original state, is unbelievably entertaining in the dubbed version. Made to be very funny, it still slightly follows the main story line in a way but is ridiculously funny!
