This franchise is overlooked when it comes to western audiences yet it has a very long beloved history in Japan. I cannot speak for anyone else, but to me this is a CLASSIC in every way shape and form. It is a fun spooky kids anime that has gorgeous spooky atmospheric backgrounds to go a long with charming characters and fun adventures. If you enjoy anything that's classic, horror, and funny. This is for you.

It will obviously not be for everyone due to it's age, and the fact that it's in black and white, but don't let that distract you from what it does so read more
