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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally halarious un-political correct commedy anime Nov. 17 2008

Anyone who doesn't think this is funny has absolutely zero sense of humor and should be watching soap operas or reading a historical novel. This is not a heart warming story about a family whose wife died. Its the funniest anime I have ever watched. More than all the 300 Anime movies I have in my collection put together. It really pokes fun at nerds and straight laced political correct snobs. It made me realize how brainwashed Americans are that we can't even poke fun at ourselves. This is NOT about a family trying to adjust after a mother dies. The family is perfectly adjusted to the mother being dead and have moved on even joking about the dead mother --which has nothing to do with the theme. A group of kids go into the old haunted school house looking for their lost cat and the adventure starts. I have 600 movies and 300 anime in my collection and this is the first movie that has made me laugh out loud. Ghost stories describes itself as wicked fun. A reluctant ghost hunter. Her babbling baby brother. A horny pre-teen. Its 5 discs not 1 and contains 1-20 episodes--each a separate ghost adventure -- 550 minutes long. This anime is so funny I am watching it twice and may even watch it 3 times. I recommend it for anyone who is sick and tired of political correct authoritarians ruling their lives. No holds barred comedy. English dubbed voices and translations are great. Totally funny!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghost Stories May 12 2009

A wonderful story though unlike some critics I would hardly say that the English version is better than the Japanese original version. The English version deal with adult jokes on religion and sexuality that alters the concept of the series more and more as the episodes move alone. Either in original language or in English though it still great. Its about a group of kids who make the spirits in the old school on the property next to their new school and their attempts to put the ghosts back to sleep when they stat haunting the whole town.

4.0 out of 5 stars Japanese Subbed Is The Better Way To Go On This Series Of A Entertaining Anime Jan. 10 2008
By Rich(アニメとゲームが優先!!) - Published on

I got this thinking that it would be a hilarious anime story like FMPFF but except it actually wasn't. The story is about a family that has moved to town after the kids mother has died and the father gets a new job the daughter on her first day at her new school enters an abandoned building on school and finds out that due to building developments in town that ghost who were trapped in certain shrines or locations by her spiritual mother are now being freed she finds her mother's old diary which explains how to put the wondering spirits back to rest and tries to put the spirits to rest again. Now here is the weird part is that the English voice dubbed totally changed what the characters are truly saying in the episodes supposedly to make it more funny instead some of it which is funny but the majority was just to stupid for words. If you watch this I'd advise the Japanese subbed version as this of course truly tells
you what is going on. I will tell you one more thing while the English voice actors are pros and are good sadly the lines they were given had either to many racial context during episodes or to many foul words so if you are offended by either of these again switch to the subbed audio instead.

By XIRUS - Published on
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
