Synopsis

Years ago, all of the ghosts in a haunted schoolhouse were banished by a certain student. Now, they're back—and they want revenge...

Satsuki and Keiichirou Miyanoshita are two siblings recovering from the tragic loss of their mother. After moving to their mother's hometown, they learn that the local school they have transferred to is an old building—one said to be haunted. Despite initially brushing it off as a silly rumor, the two soon discover that ghosts are indeed real and that they're after them! Gakkou no Kaidan is the creepy tale of the lives of these siblings and their newfound friends as they try to survive the school's ghosts—with a little help from their pet cat along the way.

What I've edited on the wikipedia article on a few occasions was the reason ADV didn't do a dub that directly translated the original version, I've sited sources and still it was taken down for some reason. It was the fact that they did this that made so many people try to bury the series before it was released. Hate for ADV came left and right if you mentioned "Ghost Stories" or "Gakko no Kaiden" (School Ghost Stories), This was the dub that no hardcore anime fan wanted to see succeed. While some threw hateful comments, others were just plain confused. read more

People with no sense of humor have tried to bury this series from the start, and ADV got major heat for it's off the cuff dub of what was a pretty crappy anime in it's original form. ADV gave the voice actors license to say whatever the hell they wanted provided it matched the lip flap and kept some semblance of a story on track. I nearly peed myself the first time I saw this! If you want silly fun than this is for you. If your one of these hypocritical anime snobs who prefers dubs which strip away Japanese culture and subtle nuance but read more

This is the DUB review (the sub would be about 2-4 out of 10) so I'm going to make this quick. This anime is a gem that everyone needs to see. It is the only official Abridged Series. For real guys it's absurdly funny, the voice acting is top-notch and, surprisingly, the characters are more solid in the dub where it is a parody of the original show (Momoko is a fucking goddess).
Even though not all episodes are funny, this show is a must for every anime fans.


And please don't watch it sub, it's an abomination.

Going into this series, anyone should know that the dub and the sub of this show are drastically different. The sub is probably more serious, and the dub is complete crack. So of course, I watched the dub version.
Ive done my fair share of watching serious animes. But once in a while its nice to sit back and relax with something light. Trust me, if you just want to laugh for half an hour, then Ghost Stories is what you want.

Story? what story? This show has the plot of an abrigged series you'd find on youtube.

Subs vs. Dubs: Is Anime In English Really That Bad?

There are some out there who refuse to give dubs any credit, and will direct someone to the subbed version without a second thought. But, are dubbed versions of anime really that bad? Are they at least worth a try?
