When the dubbing team asked about any restrictions, they were told to do whatever they wanted with it, so long as they bought the license and made the show sell. To that end, director Steven Foster reworked the show into a pure GagDub by throwing out nearly all of the original script. The dub kept only the names of major characters and ghosts, as well as the most basic plot points--everything else was improvised to fit the lip flaps. When the voice actors were called in to record scenes, whoever got there first would set the tone and subject for the scene, which meant the other cast members had to follow in those footsteps. This unique approach produced a dub full of random characterization, fourth-wall-breaking jokes, tons of {{Take That}}s, and as much silliness as the [=VAs=] could manage.

* InsideShoes: Unintentionally funny in episode 8. The kids are shown wearing theirs in the final scene in the computer lab, meaning they stopped to change their shoes even in a life-or-death emergency.

* Squick: In Episode 12, Momoko reveals she found the Lord in rehab for drugs and sex addiction. This was a few months before Satsuki's mother died, which meant Momoko was 7 at best during all this.

Creator/DiscotekMedia saved the license and re-released the show in 2014; it made sure to say upfront that ADV's English dub would be included. (ADV's {{gag sub}}s, which contained additional jokes, and special features explaining the urban legends behind each episode were left out of the re-release.) The show is also viewable in both subbed and (gag)dubbed forms over on [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/ghost-stories Crunchyroll]].
