My sentiments exactly. But hey, I have seen some strange names for anime before... but I guess you can't judge an anime by its title/cover. (except hentai [which is strangely ironic, given the nature of the anime])

Yeah, it is, but even still. And I had thought Girl Got Game was bad. ^^;;

lololol, somehow, that title is hillarious to me. I always laughed at the original title of "GHOST!" for being so.. direct, lol, but now I can laugh at this one even more.

It's a fun comic though, and since the Japanese volumes aren't the easist to find, I might pick up their version, though honestly, it'd be kinda embarassing to buy something with that title.... lololol

It's a fun comic, doesn't take itself too seriously, but it does deal with ghosts and their deaths, so there's drama at times as well, but overall I thought it was fun XD (I've only read the first 2 volumes)

lol, well, I actually agree with you in a way. With the Japanese comics, you can generally tell bl comics from others just by looking at the spine. But sometimes with American releases, you can't tell until you flip through it. I know they don't suit everyone's taste, lol ^_^

Well at first glance I thought they were talking about GiTS. It was only when I clicked on the synopsis that it all became clear and now I can say it works. I will guess that it was because of others mistaking the Ghost title as an abreviation of GiTS that they made the change. Wink

My general rule is never judge a book by its title (or cover). -glances over at volume 1 of @Large on his bookcase-

You didn't see anything Wink
