Gakkou no Kaidan Ghost Stories Dubbed Anime Funny Kids

Evident to its title, Gakkou no Kaidan (aka Ghost Stories) is a horror-themed anime series which features some of the ghosts from urban legends and Japanese folklore. However, despite its theme, Gakkou no Kaidan became more popular because of its dubbed anime version where the script is edited – from the mediocre Japanese version to a very funny English version. Although it follows the same plot as the Japanese version, you may notice that some scenes became a bit different as it contains a lot of adlibs.

So, what's really in the dubbed version that makes Gakkou no Kaidan more funny and interesting?

The power of words is truly amazing. In the dubbed anime for Gakkou no Kaidan, many of the characters of the story have received completely different personalities because of the adlibs. Momoko Koigakubo, for instance, is a devoted Christian who utterly opposes other religious beliefs and described Satsuki and Keiichirou Miyanoshita's mother as a lesbian. Most of the times, she would talk about Christianity and its significance to everyone. Keiichirou is a mentally retarded child who would sometimes blab like a baby when he’s scared or facing difficult situations. Hajime Aoyama, on the other hand, talks more about perverted stuff.
