Ghost Hunt


Ghost Hunt is another great anime. Like the title suggests, Ghost Hunt falls under the horror category. Mystery too, I suppose.

Ghost Hunt is all about ghost hunting of course. Shibuya Kazuya is the president of SPR, short for Shibuya Psychic Research. His job is of course, ghost hunting and getting rid of them. And by the way, he’s only 17 but really, don’t let his age fool you. He’s a very capable ghost hunter. His hidden powers are somewhat handy in certain situations. Not to mention that his analytical skills are top notch.

He had a job at this local high school. Apparently, the gym building is haunted and every time workers try to demolish it, someone will get injured. That’s when Shibuya met Mai.

Mai is a 16-year-old school girl. Nothing much is known about her at this point but as the story goes, it is revealed that Mai is in fact an orphan who lives alone. Her school fees are waived thanks to the generous school board. She’s tough and she doesn’t need any sympathy from anyone. And she has fallen for Shibuya.

Mai thinks that Shibuya is a narcissist given that he only thinks about himself or work. Nothing other than work interests him. And thus, Mai declares that from there onwards, he’ll be called Naru, short for narcissist.

Working with him is Lin. Lin from Hong Kong. At first glance, one may think that he’s expressionless and unfriendly. He especially dislikes Mai from the first time they met. Well, if it wasn’t for Mai, he wouldn’t got hurt in the first place.

Together with Takigawa aka Monk-san, John Brown the Australian priest, Masako the well-known medium, Ayako the self-proclaimed miko and the newcomer Yasuhara, they solved many cases involving spirits and even a blood-thirsty monster.

After watching the anime till the end, I was kinda hoping for more and then I found out that this anime is based on a novel and manga of the same name. The manga is not much of a difference from the anime. I think, it’s exactly the same. The story flow is the same as its manga counterpart. I was like, am I wasting my time? Then again, I wanted more Ghost Hunt…

At the end of the day, I still prefer the anime. In anime, you can actually hear the great sound effects that reflects the eeriness of the surroundings. And and by the way, did I mention that Naru’s way hotter in the anime? Takigawa’s cool too, in his own way. Lol. What I’m trying to say that the drawings are better in the anime compared to the manga….no offense to the author. Without you, the authors, Shiho Inada and Fuyumi Ono, I don’t think the anime would exist. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful series…am looking forward for more in the future. Arigatou…
