Ghost Hunt ゴーストハント



Previously, I've written a post about Ghost Hunt but didn't really put up the acutal pictures for it. Here are some pictures and extra info which I manage to grab from the internet.

Character Analysis


A paranormal researcher and the handsome 17 year-old president of the SPR. His nickname "Naru-chan" is short for "narcissist", given to him by Mai. Contrary to the other characters, he does not possess any kind of spiritual power, and must count on his companions' abilities and his own intellect and knowledge to solve the cases they investigate. It is later revealed that Shibuya is an extremely powerful psychic, but using it takes a toll on his body because it is difficult to control and can only be used as raw power. Though appearing cold and critical in front of his friends, he does care for them deeply. He has earned the trust and respect of the others.
In the novels, it is revealed that Naru actually is Oliver Davis in disguise and has a twin brother named Eugene Davis (Gene for short). Both of them used to be orphans and lived in an orphanage before later being adopted by the Davises. Naru actually went to Japan because he was searching for his brother who was run over by a car and later thrown into a lake to clear up any evidence of the accident.


A first year high school student who has to take up a job at the SPR; after she accidentally hurts Naru's assistant and becomes a temporary replacement. She openly dislikes Naru for his egotistical attitude, but she seems to be harboring romantic feelings for him which manifests in dreams with him smiling and supporting her. Naru determines that she has ESP abilities through a test (although she did the complete opposite of what she was told to do, instead of predicting which light would light up, she predicted which wouldn't, and has a miss rate of 1000/1000). Naru refers to her abilities as "latent sensitivity", which include her dreams acting as a form of precognition and her seeming clairvoyance, akin to an animal's ability to instinctively detect danger. In recent episodes, Mai has also experienced 'out of body' movement, when she gave the key to her old home to Masako while she was dreaming. It should be noted that both her parents died. Her dad died when she was little, and her mom when she was in middle school. Mai Taniyama was taken in by a teacher who has helped her through those years. Yet when she revels this she is living by her self. In the novels, it is revealed that the 'Naru' who Mai sees in her dream is actually Naru's dead twin brother, Eugene Davis.


Originally from Hong Kong. He is Shibuya's calm and taciturn assistant who rarely speaks more than he needs to. He seems to get most of the unpleasant jobs, and works through the night. He appears to be an onmyoji and has a wide range of paranormal skills from exorcism to summoning spirit familiars. He acts as Shibuya's guardian in the place of Shibuya's parents, who are professors of paranormal research and has been apparently sent by them to observe Shibuya, although what this means is unknown at present.


A Buddhist monk from Mt. Koya, who is also a bass musician. He considers monk as a side job, while playing in a band is his real profession. He usually acts as a brotherly figure to Mai, but does ask Mai out on a date when she becomes jealous of Naru going on a date with Masako at the end of episode 11. He is one of the more powerful members of the group and usually with the most effective abilities against ghosts. The others refer to him as "Bou-san" (Monk-san).
It is discovered in the novels that he actually has a diving license but has never used it, not even once.


A spirit medium with a popular television show and the ability to speak to the dead. A young girl who resembles a Japanese doll because she is always wearing a kimono. She seem to have romantic feelings towards Naru and appears to have the upper hand in winning his affections compared to Mai, although she is jealous of how casual and free Naru is when dealing with Mai.


A nineteen year old Catholic exorcist priest from Australia who speaks Japanese with a Kansai accent. Good-natured and helpful, he helps Mai and Naru however he can. His means of exorcism is spraying Holy Water while reciting a prayer.


An outspoken self-styled Shinto miko priestess, given that she was not raised in a shrine and is actually the daughter of a wealthy doctor who owns a community hospital. She is confident and proud of her abilities, though her attempts to demonstrate them have almost always fallen short. To her credit, she did teach Mai some defensive sutras, particularly the standard Shinto exorcism incantation, "Rin pyou tou sha kai jin retsu sai zen". It is later revealed that she is actually just as strong as Bou-san, but apparently only works well under certain conditions and is capable of hearing the spirits of trees. A running joke is that at the beginning of a new case, Ayako usually claims the incident is caused by an elemental earth spirit. She has also shown an interest in Naru, though he frequently rebuffs her with dry remarks concerning her age.
