Ghost Hunt

You know, I pronounce it "mang-gah". Yeah, I'm one of those.

Hands down my favorite manga. The show was pretty similar, but I read the manga first and therefore prefer it to the anime. Not only was the story and character development compelling, but it was actually a bit scary. Highly recommend it if you like that sort of thing. Fruit's Basket is also a favorite.

There are lots of ghosts and such involved. So if that's not your cup of tea, stay away lol. Though I know you're not a manga fan, if you are interested in it, then I'd really recommend the anime.

I used to like scary things when I was younger. Now I can't stand to look at it lol. :'(

Off-topic: You mean like Paranoia Agent? That show gave me nightmares. >.>;

On-topic: Never heard of the manga, though it does sound good. I'm usually into the supernatural areas like that.

Paranoia is one of my favorites. But I don't like really gory type things.

I wouldn't compare Ghost Hunt to Paranoia Agent. That one creeped me out way more than Ghost Hunt.

Ghost Hunt isn't gory, just ghost things.

Ooh, in that case it sounds pretty much right up my alley. Is it more or less like a Scooby-Doo mystery hunt thing? Give us a little description if you can. ^_~

Not quite as silly as Scooby-Doo, but it's definitely a mystery and there are silly characters. There are parts that are pretty scary, but I think it's balanced well with humor. Here's a description from wiki:

Ghost Hunt follows the ghost hunting adventures of Mai Taniyama, a first year high school student, who becomes involved with the Shibuya Psychic Research Center (SPR) and its young manager, Kazuya Shibuya. Mai nicknames Kazuya Shibuya "Naru" because of his narcissistic attitude, and the nickname is generally adopted by all those who come to eventually work with SPR: a Buddhist monk, Houshou Takigawa; a shrine maiden, Ayako Matsuzaki; a famous psychic, Masako Hara; and Catholic Priest, John Brown.

Ghost Hunt also explores the paranormal abilities of the characters, particularly focusing on Mai's "latent psychic abilities," demonstrated by her dreaming about information relevant to their cases. She is often joined in her dreams by someone who she assumes to be Naru acting as a spirit guide, but whom is later revealed to be someone quite unexpected.

^This second paragraph here sort of has spoilers, but nothing really big, so highlight and read if you don't mind small spoilers.

Ah, thanks! This definately sounds like something I'll be interested in. I'm assuming I can easily find it on AFTV Network or something, so I'm going to put it on my "To Watch" list of animés. lol
