While the name suggests something else, this anime is entirely a supernatural story about a boy who can see ghosts. Before you think of the Sixth Sense, however, this series has traditional japanese ghosts and ghouls as it’s centerpeice, which are much more nasty than just simple human spirits. Although the humans are pretty bad too.

Why I recommend it to Writers: The real treat here is the ideas it gives. The series is wildly imaginative, and written by one of my favorite author-groups, CLAMP. Yuuko alone will win you over, I’m sure of it.

Warnings: The series IS a horror series, so some of the scares are pretty amazing.
