Crunchyroll Adds Ghost Stories Anime to Catalog
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it has added the Ghost Stories (Gakkō no Kaidan) anime series to its catalog. The anime is available with both its "infamous" English dub and the original Japanese audio with subtitles.
The anime is available to Crunchyroll users in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. The entire series is available for premium users, while only the first 10 episodes are available for free users, with the remaining 10 episodes available next week.
Crunchyroll describes the series:
When nearby construction disturbs a spiritual resting place, it's disgruntled denizens so what any supernatural being would do after a rude awaking - they terrorize the local school.
And that means it's up to a scruffy band of young ghost hunters to expel their satanic schoolmates before everyone gets sent to permanent detention! Meet Satsuki, her crybaby brother, the resident class stud, the school nerd and “psychical researcher,” a born again beauty, and a resentful, demon-possessed cat in the funniest, scariest school you've ever enrolled in.
The 20-episode anime premiered in Japan in 2000. ADV Films released it in North America on five DVDs released from 2005 to 2006. Discotek released the complete series on DVD in March 2014 with the English dub and original Japanese audio.
