Seriously im searching for horror anime that are truly "building" the horror and make you fear like you are a part of it and so far this one is the only one that does it perfectly i love it (also if you know another anime which is like the description i gave feel free to suggest it :D )

Same! It’s probably the only anime that I’ve religiously rewatched over and over because the cast is so diverse and unique. I just love it so much!

Personnally this anime was underwhelming. Just a few jumpscares with terrible cheap plot and characters. But at any rate, the way Japanese people conceive horror, it's more about the mood than truly scary stuff. In that regard Ghost Hound was pretty great, heaps better than Ghost Hunt

I always look for new horror anime, but it never as good as ghost hunt. I like it because it scared me from the atmosphere, story. I hate jumpscares

Ito junji have some episode that really scared me

The most memorable 'scary moment' in Ghost Hunt is probably the scene underground in the Bloodstained Labyrinth arc, how is that part a "jumpscare"?



Jumpscare is like in Shiki episode 7 I think,


I also don't get your criticism of "terrible cheap plot and characters". I tried reading some of the negative reviews and they pretty much said "muh development nonexistent, bad!!"

To respond to the OP, yea this remains the only horror anime that legit scared me, though categorizing this anime as just another horror anime could be misleading since a lot of people claim to hate it because it's not scary for the whole 25 episodes duration. It's more supernatural with a little spice of horror.

Higurashi far much better than this anime.

some weird stuff i found about this anime:
- Mai has many psychic abilities but never use it effectively. they would't need Masako to help them on every single cases. just let Mai sleeping soundly on the night and ask her about her dream in the morn. all her dreams always give valuable clues to the case they're in.
- there is no exorcism, everything is about purification. if those soul were so obedient, they wouldn't turned into a ghost, right?
- wtf is Takigawa and Ayako really doing on this anime? why Takigawa can't exorcise evil spirit from living humans? it's a monk job. that's why a monk had to travel through the land to exorcise evil spirits. what kind of Miko (priestess) that she can't sense spirits? Also, Miko main role is not for exorcising evil spirits but giving blessings, the reason why most Miko don't venture and given a duty to take care of a temple/shrine. honestly, i think they both are just a conman.
- about Kenji's case, there is always a strict "ethos" for any construction companies everywhere to re-check the building first before the takeover. Christmas is sure make people blind.
- about Urado's case, when Mai dreaming about Masako location, don't you think it'd better if Mai guides Masako out from the room and move to the nearest place from her rescue team entry point? she gave Masako a key instead. it sure give me a great joy and happiness if i were kidnapped and kept inside an "unlocked" room and then my esper friend used her ability to find my location and when we met each other, she gave me a tomato, telling me to not afraid and keep strong and after saying that she then left me behind to go reporting to the police office while she aware the kidnapper can kill me in the next second.

so, basically, there are too many weird stuff on this anime to make me feeling horror

I'll stay out all night
Looking at the sky
I'll still have my sight
Yeah, I'll still have my eyes


And, I’ll stop writing songs
Stop scratching out lines
I won't have to think
And it won't have to rhyme
