Added DiffLines:

** One of the early episodes has a ghost haunting the school bathrooms and sucks people in through the very toilets they use never to be seen again. [[Anime/PantyandStockingWithGarterbelt sound familar now?]]

** A lot of the jokes with Momoko involve the punchline being that he is jewish. In 2017, with antisemitism being quite high, it can make some of these jokes a little more cringe-worthy.

Added DiffLines:

** "These pajamas are ''gay''!" Try calling something "Gay" in the new tens and expect a laugh.

Added DiffLines:

** Invoked for a gag in one episode wherein Satsuki yells at her brother and her dad, making her voice raise several pitches.
--> "And I thought her mother's voice grated on my nerves."


Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectFailure: In one episode (7), Satsuki and Hajime are animated to run down the hall... except the hall is not moving, so they are literally running in place. [[LampshadeHanging Naturally the voice actors made fun of it]].

* {{Narm}}: The episode where the characters ''get sucked into the spirit world through the toilet''. Obviously ADV thought it was just as unintentionally funny.

** Satsuki's father at one point holds the cursed doll... only for it to give a close-up of him holding it ''face-first to his crotch''. Of course ADV made fun of it.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: The dub itself, despite still having a ''lot'' of funny moments that are still funny over ten years later, has some jokes that were okay for the time
** A lot of the jokes with Momoko involve the punchline being that he is jewish. In 2017, with antisemitism being quite high, it can make some of these jokes a little more cringe-worthy.
** The RunningGag about Kayako dressing like a lesbian (Especially using "Dyke" to describe it) and all the jokes about people being gay as the punchlines. In the 90s and 00s, this was ''very'' common, but good luck doing that and getting laughter these days.
** "Run like a black man is chasing you" was still rather [[IncrediblyLamePun racy]] at the time, but it wouldn't fly over in the new tens.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
