Ghost Hunt v1
Reviewed by Paul Dale Roberts

The decrepit building was condemned long ago, but every time the owners try to tear it down, �accidents� start to happen�people get hurt, sometimes even killed. Mai Taniyama and her classmates have heard the rumors that the creepy old high school is haunted�possibly by ghosts from the Second World War. So one rainy day they gather at the told school to tell ghost stories, hoping to attract one of the suspected spirits.

No ghosts materialize, but Mai and her friends do meet Kazuya Shibuya, the handsome young owner of Shibuya Psychic Research, who�s been hired to investigate paranormal activity at the school. Also at the scene are an exorcist, a Buddhist monk, a woman who can speak with the dead, and an outspoken Shinto priestess. Surely one of them will have the talents to solve this mystery. . . .

Comments: A decrepit building that once was a high school is condemned. When the owners try to tear it down, accidents happen. People get hurt, people get killed. Mai Taniyama and her friends hear that the old high school is haunted. They believe that this high school is haunted by ghosts of WWII. (Does that mean Captain America's sidekick Bucky haunts this school? Hmmmm....) One day Mai and her friends gather at the school to tell ghost stories. When they get there, something surprising happens, they meet Kazuya Shibuya - the owner of Shibuya Psychic Research Center. They also meet his friends: an exorcist, a Buddhist Monk, a woman ghost whisperer and a Shinto Priest. These kids will experience something so bizarre, so strange, their lives may change forever. The story is excellent, the artwork is very bland. I just want to ask Mai one thing...'when you find ghosts in the neighborhood...who are you going to call? GHOSTBUSTERS!
