From the few eps I've seen, this is a nice acquisition for Funimation.

I'm not usually one for mystery-type anime, but I like this show. Funimation has made another good pick-up.

Awesome. I loved this anime back when it was airing, and I'll definitely be purchasing the DVDs.

Sweetness! This series is definitely recommended for fans of the supernatural/mystery genre. It's very intriguing with how the show is divided into mini-arcs, and it also has an excellent soundtrack to add to the suspenseful/creepy moments throughout the series. I'm looking very forward to collecting it as FUNi releases it Very Happy.

lol. And I was just talking about it.

Ghost Hunt: Now Legit. Unfortunately we'll have to wait until Halloween next year if we want to do a marathon the night of October 31.

I thought it was a good series myself. Scared the hell out of me at some parts (which, to be honest, doesn't take that much as I'm a coward at heart).

Thanks for the warning. But, then again, with a title like that, one does have to expect scary moments.

I really don't like scary movies, etc. but because I do like the anime, I'm going to give this one a try.

No.

Haunted Junction has comedic elements to it.

Ghost Hunt is considerably more serious. IMO.

I am guessing it was File #7 because that one scared the heck out of me.

Ooh! Something to look forward to!

I guess it is time to check out the manga while I am at it.

Waves hand in the air! ME TOO! That one was freakin scary!

And I cried buckets full at the church episode...

This series is on my MUST BUY SOON AS RELEASED list!

Wow, already so much positive commentary! I know a series that just went on to my Interested list. Cool

Haven't seen nor heard much about this one before now, but the art style looks quite nice and with all the good comments already, I've got to say I'm interested. Nice to see more creepy supernatural series coming over. I hope this is a trend with Funimation and one that will continue for a while. (I still need them to license the second season of Hell Girl afterall.)

It doesn't take too much to satisfy me though. Anything with shrine maidens is good in my book. Twisted EvilWink

I was just reading about this in Protoculture Addicts yesterday and thought it looked pretty interesting and would be worth looking into if it got licensed. And what do you know, it gets licensed (well, announced) that day.

I've heard lots of good things about Ghost Hunt so this seems like really good news, but... Fall of 2008? Ouch.

I guess they're going to be tieing it to Halloween next year too (or they're just crazy busy with One Piece).
