    Ghost Stories: One of the most notorious dubs of all time.
    Ghost stories had a horrible reception in Japan (see the ED, "Sexy Sexy"). Because of this bad reception, the company that made the anime, studio Pierrot, told adv films, that they only had to follow two rules when making this dub: they had to keep the names of the ghosts the same as the sub and they had to keep the way the ghosts were banished the same.

    These two rules were about the only ...

    Ghost Stories: The Professional Abridged Series, without needing to Abridge. A DUB must watch.
    Warning: If you only watch anime in sub, DO NOT watch this series.

    There's a story behind why: The original series tanked in Japan due to low ratings and sub-par writing, but because of how much money the animators sunk into this show, they allowed the English dub cast to IMPROVISE AND MAKE UP THEIR OWN LINES as well as make up context and backstories for each of the ...

    A must watch - hilarious dub that vastly improves the original
    It watches like an abridged series.. without being abridged. In its original (japanese language) form, Ghost Stories is a mediocre, somewhat watchable show. It did quite poorly in Japan, so when it was picked up to be dubbed in west, the team and voice actors had fun with it, almost too much fun. You can tell from the stereotypes, pop culture references, sexual and racial jokes that the dialogue ...

    Sub is ehhh Dub is amazing
    One of the funniest dubs I have ever watched. I mean it was just so funny that I had to watch all 20 eps of it in one day. It may not be funny to people who are easily offended but it's just too good that I already consider this one of the best. If you're easily offended and love to laugh it's 100% for you!

    This is the best dub ever it's a legend
    I watched this because I was bored one day and I'm glad I did I'm about to re-watching for the 3rd time now and this still makes me laugh

    the dub is basically a parody and is really worth the watch if you need a good laugh

    out of all the English dubs I've watched over the years this dub is a legend

    one of the funniest anime ..in english tho
    OMG this anime is so funny, i saw in english and i mean i could not stop laughing..I loved it!!!
    It just a pun after another and it drops famous peoples name and cliche too..That is the best part of this anime..But the few last episodes it does looses it touch and not very funny too much of the same.
    it is worth watching!!!
    In English if you can.

    If Deadpool Was An Anime!
    If Deadpool had less nudity and was an anime it would have been this show! Third wall breaking? Check. Making fun of celebrities? Check.Now all their missing is chimichangas and a villain named after soap! (My review was too short so I'm just getting the max characters here, there we go.)

    dub is hilarious but heads up!! would probs get a rating of teen/17+
    the dub gets really sexual (dialogue only obvs) in the second half of the series, so if that along w the south park level of crude language make you uncomfortable, it might be best for you to skip this!! theres plenty of clips of the funniest stuff if you dont want to completely miss out tho, a lot of them youtube cut most of the sexual stuff out <:)

    besides that it is amazingly hilarious!!

    best dub to have ever been made
    seriously, this is a great show, great story, great animation, great music, great characters, and best of all, the best english dub ever made. the story is based on various different Japanese ghost stories and how they effect the children of this town. the ending theme is the best ending theme i have ever listened to.

  • The English Dub is the only way to enjoy Ghost Stories.
    A lot of people tend to say 'subs are ALWAYS better than dubs', and that is where I like to say, 'no'. There are a few anime shows out there that are just better in dubbed, and Ghost Stories is a prime example.

    The Ghost Stories sub failed pretty hard in Japan, so the people who created it told the English cast just to do whatever they wanted, as long as it still made sense with the original ...
