Ghost Hunt

Ghost HuntGhost Hunt chapter 1 by Shiho Inada starts off with a few high school girls sharing horror stories in hopes of attracting a ghost after turning off a flashlight when everyone is finished telling their stories.

The art and starting dialogue make it well enough to understand which one of the girls is the main character, but there's still a bit of a blur to if the other girls are important to the series until later in the chapter. The story then casually introduces a second main character as he walks into the room the girls were in.

How the two main characters become involved with each other is an original "you broke something expensive of mine and now you must pay for it by working for me": a great way to try to keep the reader's interest for later chapters. The art style resembles those of the 90's, and the dialogue makes it feel like it's a shojo manga at times. The characters all have ordinary personalities, but that's what makes the paranormal story feel realistic.

Character Rating: 8/10
Plot Rating: 7/10
Overall Rating: 8/10.

Ghost Hunt is available in english online at Spectrum Nexus, and in print for $15.95 CDN by Random House Publishing Group.

Ghost Hunt anime episodes 1 to 25 are available online in japanese with english subtitles at Funimation's YouTube Channel.
