On August 28th, Discotek Media announced their latest in a long series of anime license rescues via their Facebook page: Ghost Stories, a children’s horror television series that originally aired from 2000 to 2001 and was first published in North America by ADV. The series follows Satsuki Miyanoshita, a student that moves to her deceased mother’s home town, only to find herself forced to contend with ghosts that her mother had once sealed away.

Ghost Stories

The release will feature both the original Japanese with English subtitles, as well as the ADV-produced English dub. Fans of the dub will no doubt be elated by this; rather than play the story straight, the dub intentionally twists the show into an absurd comedy with its rewritten and ad-libbed dialog. Ghost Stories will see domestic release in North America once again in 2014.

About Justin Graham

Justin joined Oprainfall through…belligerence. (Note to others: This is not a good way to get noticed. This sort of thing only works once.) When he’s not writing about games or waxing nostalgic about anime older than a large portion of the site’s audience, he can be found playing JRPGs or beating up lots of dudes in Dynasty Warriors.
