Strange things are happening around the town of Suiten. The daughter of a priest begins to see strange visions, spirits have started to roam the mountains, and Tarou Komori is having unsettling dreams. Due to the trauma of being kidnapped 11 years ago, he has repressed most of the memories that could shed light on what really happened all those years ago. But they return in his sleep, combined with encounters beyond the realm of dreams.

As the supernatural and psychological collide, three children struggle to face their demons and repair the breach between the spiritual and corporeal worlds.

Ghost Hound is very good, and is worth a watch.

When it has a good episode it has a *good* episode, the sound design, the skill with which it builds and unravels mystery, the slow but attentive pacing, it all works extremely well to have a show that, for specific points, is frankly kind of peerless.

Mixed Feelings
Ghost Hound has several distinguishing characteristics that set it apart from other TV shows.

The series opens with Taro recollecting the dream of their kidnapping. He is keen on finding out the truth concerning what led to his sister’s death and her last whispered words. However, Makoto is busy with his efforts to solve the problem around the murder of his father, which might be linked as well to the kidnapping of Taro. Masayuki, the new pupil at the school, is the one who gives all the other students something to think about and ultimately brings them together while struggling with his own fears.

Nevertheless, the plot ...

Before watching any anime I start to look at its score on this page, when I saw a 7.41 I thought it would be an anime that was going to be good enough to recommend it. In the end I was disappointed, the most unfortunate thing is having to watch 22 episodes to realize that the most important plot has no outcome. Don't waste your time watching this unless you have nothing to see.
I liked the animation, setting, intro and outro but the script failed. I ended up disappointed, I thought I had found a gem but it was the opposite.
