Ghost Hunt is a Japanese anime series adapted from a manga of the same name by Fuyumi Ono. Originally aired on TV Tokyo from October 2006 to March 2007, the show tells the story of a young girl named Mai Taniyama who becomes involved in paranormal investigations alongside a group of psychic researchers.

The series begins with Mai accidentally breaking a camera belonging to Kazuya Shibuya, a mysterious paranormal investigator known as "Naru." In order to pay for the damages, Mai takes a part-time job as a assistant for Naru's research agency, Shibuya Psychic Research. However, Mai soon finds herself drawn into the agency's work as they encounter a series of increasingly dangerous and disturbing cases.

The main cast of Ghost Hunt is made up of a diverse group of psychic researchers with unique abilities and areas of expertise. Naru, the enigmatic leader of the group, is a brilliant scientist and psychic who specializes in electronic voice phenomena (EVP) and other forms of electronic communication with spirits. Mai becomes the agency's assistant and acts as the audience's point of view character, while also discovering her own psychic abilities over the course of the series. Other members of the team include the moody and sarcastic medium Masako Hara, the Australian Catholic priest John Brown, the Shinto priestess Ayako Matsuzaki, and the friendly psychic monk Houshou Takigawa.

Each episode of Ghost Hunt is self-contained, with the team investigating a different haunted location or paranormal phenomenon each time. However, all of the episodes are connected by a larger story arc involving Naru's past and his mysterious connection to a powerful and malevolent spirit known only as "The Doll." As the team investigates more cases, they begin to uncover clues about The Doll's origins and motivations, leading to a tense and dramatic climax in the final episodes of the series.

One of the standout features of Ghost Hunt is its combination of horror, mystery, and humor. While the show is certainly spooky and atmospheric, it also contains many lighter moments and comedic scenes, often involving the interactions between the various members of the research team. The show's pacing is also excellent, with each episode building tension and suspense as the team gets closer to solving the mystery at hand.

Another strength of Ghost Hunt is its excellent voice cast, with well-known anime actors Travis Willingham, Cherami Leigh, and Todd Haberkorn providing standout performances as Naru, Mai, and Takigawa respectively. The show's animation is also impressive, featuring slick character designs and detailed backgrounds that help to create a genuinely eerie and unsettling atmosphere.

Overall, Ghost Hunt is a highly engaging and entertaining anime series that blends supernatural horror with compelling character relationships and a satisfying mystery. While the show's episodic structure may not be for everyone, it's a great choice for fans of horror anime, as well as anyone looking for an engaging and well-crafted story with plenty of scares and surprises.

Ghost Hunt is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (25 episodes). The series first aired on October 3, 2006.
