** The English dub makes Amanojaku an expy of Salem when he possessed Kaya's body, who has mismatched eyes. WesternAnimation/SabrinaSecretsOfATeenageWitch would make Salem have the same mismatched eyes.

* CharacterDerailment: Exploited by Amanojaku in the GagDub, when he complains that his sudden [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn in the last episode]] isn't faithful to his character arc, but then goes along with it in the hope of winning a Golden Globe.



* XMeetsY: The dub is if ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}'' met ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: There was an episode made but never aired (and probably never recorded by the seiyuu) revolving around the kuchisaki-onna, a female ghost with a disfigured face. It's supposed to look like a GlasgowGrin but the anime depicted it more like a cleft palate. In order to avoid offense, the episode was shelved. Can you ''imagine'' what ADV's GagDub would have done with ''that'' material? On second thought, maybe it's best that it never saw the light of day.
** Greg Ayres expressed regret that the Mel Gibson Jew rant happened just a few weeks after production wrapped, as he would have loved to have incorporated it into the final episode.

* MostAnnoyingSound: Keichiro's voice in the dub, hands down. Though, considering a lot of his dialogue consists exclusivley of random babling, this was obviously intentional.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Too many to list in the gag dub.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The joke with Reiichirou and the Merry Mary doll becomes a lot less funny when you learn that his voice actor Illich Guardiola was arrested in 2014 for sexual assault of a 16 year old (consent age in Texas is 17).

Legal age of consent in Texas is 17).17, and he was her teacher, ''and'' he took her across state lines to marry her (thus breaking three laws right there). However, the girl and her parents refused to cooperate with the cops and prosecutors had to drop the charges for lack of evidence.[[/note]]

* LoveItOrHateIt: The GagDub, of course.
** When the series first came out in America in 2005, reviews were harshly split – some loved the irreverent humor and excellent acting, while others (notably [=AnimeOnDVD's=] Chris Beveridge) despised it for its utter disregard of the original script. One reviewer on Anime News Network tried to split the difference, liking the dub but feeling that Episode 12 should have been played straight due to its heavier subject matter. None of the negative critics seemed to care that the show had been a complete flop in Japan.
** Keep in mind that this was the era when [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]] was still at the height of their power and was busy making fans' heads explode with their universally-despised ''Manga/OnePiece'' dub, fuelling a backlash among an anime fandom that increasingly demanded ''zero'' alterations to a dub script during localization, quality be damned.
** 10+ years on, most people who hated the ''Ghost Stories'' dub have either left the scene or come to enjoy it as a kitschy reminder of a different era. While it still has its (often harsh) critics, the reception of the dub today is generally positive.



* SoOkayItsAverage: The general opinion on the original Japanese version, and part of the reason it didn't catch on. Opinions on the GagDub, [[LoveItOrHateIt on the other hand…]]
