Ghost Stories is an anime that based on a book series by Tōru Tsunemitsu.  After being licensed for the North American market by ADV films, the show soon turned from a horror and supernatural anime in Japan, to a dark comedy in America. The english dub of Ghost Stories was hardly scripted with only three rules to follow:

(1) Do not change the names of any characters, including the ghosts.

(2) Do not change the way any ghost is defeated.

(3) Do not change the meaning of the episode.

As long as the english dub cast followed these rules, and made the show successful, they could do whatever they want. And boy did they do just that! The english dub included pop culture references, breaking the 4th wall, hilarious interactions between characters, and of course dark humor!

The show quickly gained many fans in America and still does today! Unfortunately, the show came to an end due to the commercial failure of the original version in Japan. In order for another season in the english dub, there must be an original version in japanese. Many fans were distressed by this news.

Although the show ended over 10 years ago, we may still have a shot at getting it back! Many movies had gone a decade before getting a second part, and reboots of popular 1980s cartoons have been popping up recently! If these films can get a comeback, so can Ghost Stories!

Your support would mean a lot to the fans of Ghost Stories! Getting this show back would mean be the return that comedy gold english dub and the spooky feel of the original version!

Thank you for your time reading this and a double thanks if you choose to sign!
