Satsuki and her brother move into a new town, where their dead mother was once the principal of the now abandoned school. Their mother's diary reveals that the school was once haunted; hardly a surprise, considering Here Comes Hanako and Haunted Junction, one wonders if there is a school in anime that isn't. Not unlike the demonic figures in Tenchi Muyo! and Ushio & Tora, the spirit Amanojaku was trapped by Satsuki's mother in the forests behind the school, but has been released once more with the cutting down of the trees-unsurprisingly like some of those in Devil Hunter Yohko. Satsuki manages to trap Amanojaku's spirit inside her cat (compare to CardCaptors), but there are other spirits on the loose requiring her attention, in a highly derivative show that only seems to have reached the schedules because the producers were not expecting any viewers old enough to remember any of its predecessors, particularly Real School Ghost Stories, with which it shares a writer and director. Perhaps realizing that they didn't have a whole lot to work with and nobody would really care that much, ADV Films allowed the voice actors considerably freer rein than usual on the U.S. release-the English language dub often seems less translated than "improvised," quite possibly to the show's betterment, although such a last-ditch attempt to make it interesting might also be a potentially troubling throwback to the non-translations of Robotech and Samurai Pizza Cats. The anime forms part of a long-running School Ghost Stories franchise that includes 4 theatrical live-action movies, 5 live-actionTV movies, 2 live-action TV series, and 19 novels.
