The July issue (released on June 6) of Poplar's Monthly Pre-Comic Bun-Bun magazine has announced that Aiyah Ball's Live On Cardliver Kakeru manga (bottom left corner of the image to the right) and Kyo-mi Ogawa's Ghost School (Gakkō no Kaidan, top right corner of the image) will both have television anime projects. Live On Cardliver Kakeru is also getting a card project, while Ghost School is being adapted into a DS game as well. Aiyah Ball has been running Live On Cardliver Kakeru in the magazine since September of last year, although no volumes have been compiled yet.
Ogawa takes various stories from the Nihon Minwa no Kai (Japanese Folklore Association) and recounts three of them every month in her Ghost School manga. The television anime special will adapt three stories from the manga and will air in Japan on July 6. The eighth compiled volume of Ogawa's manga will ship in Japan next week, and at least two have been published in Indonesia.
A separate, 20-episode Gakkō no Kaidan anime television anime series aired in Japan from 2000 to 2001. ADV Films loosely adapted and redubbed that earlier anime series under the name Ghost Stories, while Animax television network aired a more faithful dubbing in Southeast Asia under the name Ghosts at School.
