Anime Review: GHOST HOUND

Year: 2007

Episodes: 22

Buy at: Sentai Filmworks

What is there to say about Ghost Hound. Its scary for one thing, tormenting for another and nicely animated. At times, people may find something in common with the four main cast characters, as well as the branching characters as well.

Taro Komori, a 14 year old boy with a dark past. When he was a little boy, he was kidnapped along with his older sister. Only he survived. With the incidents of the past tormenting him, Taro begins to experience O.B.E. (Out of Body Experience) In his travels, he dreams of his dead sister, trying to recall the last words she spoke.

Makoto Ogami, a distant relative to Taro. He is hesitant to be near Taro, due to incidents of the past resulting in a suicide of Makoto’s father, where Makoto himself found the body. Makoto also has O.B.E. With that he is able to find answers that he’s been looking for, only to be more lost in the darkness of an occult.

Masayuki Nakajima, a transfer student from Tokyo. Being a new student, Masayuki crashes into the lives of Taro and Makoto, bringing up the kidnapping as the main subject. All in truth, he wanted something to do to forget a suicide he witness. One that was caused by himself by bullying a student. With his run ins with the two, Masayuki too, gains O.B.E.

Miyako Komagusu, A young girl who see’s ghost and the O.B.E.’s of the boys. Her power is so strong, that a spirit can posses her at times. Taro feels he has a connection with the girl, thinking she might be his sisters reincarnation. When an occult found out about it, their eye’s set on the girl.

Many more characters enter the game, bringing the primal fear creeping up in the dark corners of the room. This anime will have you question things. About the process of being human. Is normal, normal? Or is our brain’s so fragile that people see what they want to see, to find or hide from the truth.

Watch Ghost Hound on Youtube or Buy the DVD. it’s a Must Buy.
