Ghost Hunt 04 & 05December 13, 2006
Maybe there really is something about these ghost stories.
Still a very enjoyable series. Identifying the culprit of the cases may be not that hard (I’m pretty sure that Kana Morishita, second wife of Ayami’s father and thus her stepmother is somehow pulling the strings, but I’m more than happy when I’m proven wrong on this. Maybe this time it is really “only” some ghostly doing.), but it is none the less interesting to watch the ghost hunters working on solving the case. And sometimes it really gets eerie, especially the closing scenes of the episodes made me shiver.
I didn’t think that they would use all the ghost hunters introduced in the first three episodes again on this case, rather only one or two of them, but this way is fine, too.
The animation quality is still good and I like that they are not only changing the clothes of each character (major and minor) from day to day, but also reuse parts of the already shown outfits in new ones. This is a nice little “realistic” touch.
The relationship between Mai and Kazuya is taken to the background in these two episodes. Only the second dream of Kazuya and her shock at the time Masako makes her move show Mai’s affection toward Kazuya this time.
Well, maybe next time there will be again more of this (and other character interaction, which I really like in this series). On the other hand they have still a case to solve, we’ll see, we’ll see…
