The anime series has a small fanbase in North America, leading Manga Entertainment to release the OVA, but it received a [[BlindIdiotTranslation terrible]] English dub; and strangely in the UK, Manga Entertainment decided to license the final episodes of the series. The [[LatAm Latin American dub]], on the other hand, was fairly respectful and had good cast choices, [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff helping the series reach cult status amongst anime fans]] ([[VindicatedByReruns reruns probably helped]]). Now the unthinkable has happened: [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/press-release/2010-08-04/sentai-filmworks-ghost-sweeper-mikami-tv-license the anime has been licensed in North America by Sentai Filmworks]].

* TheIdiotFromOsaka: Yokoshima, in the literal sense at least? That is, he heralds from Osaka, and his mentality is at best inconsistent.
** Not to mention Yokoshima's seiyuu, Creator/RyoHorikawa also hails from Osaka.

* AlternativeForeignThemeSong: Zig-zagged, the 2003 Italian dub of the TV series initially used a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yE7gbHFgVg completely different song]] performed by Cristina D'Avena, but from episode 22 onwards they reverted to the original Japanese opening and ending



* BlackEyesOfEvil: Yumi. In her case, they're constantly sparkling, which makes for an unsettling experience of their own. It's actually a dig of the [[Bishojo]] style of the era. Yokoshima even sports them when he came to the school and try to pick up girls.

The 1991 manga was adapted into an anime in 1993 by Creator/ToeiAnimation, and aired on Creator/TVAsahi from April 11, 1993 to March 9, 1994 on Sunday mornings (strangely enough Takashi Shiina's most recent series ''Manga/ZettaiKarenChildren'' also aired on Sunday mornings). An [[TheFilmOfTheSeries OVA]] was released in 1994, which features some great swordfighting choreography, as well as some face time for most of the main characters. There was even a [[NoExportForYou Japan exclusive]] platformer videogame that came out in 1993 on the {{SNES}}. Meanwhile the manga continued on into 1999 with 39 volumes.

* YouAlreadyChangedThePast: This seems to be Shiina's preferred understanding of time travel for this series. Spoilered examples from various points in the manga: [[spoiler: Mikami saving Yokoshima from getting skewered by Nuru; present Mikami interfering with Ashtaroth recapturing his super-demon's power core from her past life Mephistopheles; and present Mikami using forgetfulness monju to make herself and Yokoshima forget about the arrival of future Yokoshima, complete with his revelation that ''Yokoshima and Mikami will marry in the future''. The point about this last bit is that present Mikami did that to efface the horror of the thought of marrying Yokoshima...which just ups the chances of that marriage happening, epsecially given the events that happen later on.]] One thing to keep in mind, though, is that small changes to the past ''can'' occur, but will inevitably be reversed almost at once. So not so much as a single, unchanging, infinite, strand of thread as a single, unchanging, infinite thread with a few knots here and there. Multiple lines at a point, but still the same single chain of causality.
