Added DiffLines:

* UrbanFantasy: Ghost Hunt stays on a borderline with the genre, but the effects of the spirits and spiritualists on the team bring it close.


* AllMythsAreTrue: Among the main cast are a Shinto Miko, a Buddhist Monk, a Catholic Priest, and an Onmyoji/Taoist priest who successfully use rituals from their respective religions to interact with spirits and perform exorcisms.

* AllMythsAreTrue: Among the main cast are a Shinto Miko, a Buddhist Monk, a Catholic Priest, and an Onmyoji/Taoist priest who successfully use rituals from their respective religions to interact with spirits and perform exorcisms. Natural disposition and energy is shown to be a factor in dealing with spirits, as seen when Naru describes Mai as having ''latent'' abilities as an Esper rather than ''developed'' abilities as an Esper, so it's likely that their respective religions are just ways of processing that energy in a direct and focused way. On the other hand, spirits for sure exist, and definitely remain in this life because of conflicts before their death that didn't allow them to move on.


** Subverted [[spoiler:in the future as WordOfGod stated that Mai and Naru are/will be canon,meaning she eventually gets over Gene. Except the author isn't going to show how they get together or write an ending with them coming together as she doesn't do "happy endings"]].

* CerberusSyndrome: A mild case. While the series never quite loses its comedic tone, it does slowly transition from cases like a lonely girl with latent ESP to an angry god that uses tortured spirits as its puppets, actually killing two people during said case.

* {{Onmyodo}}: Lin is revealed to have this ability.

Added DiffLines:

* EurekaMoment: On multiple occasions Mai has made an innocent comment that allows Naru and the rest to figure out what they're really up against.


** The arc before that may be scarier, as it involved a HumanoidAbomination who UsedToBeAMan in a haunted house stalking the characters, actually killing 3 people and almost killing Mai and Masako before the arc is over. Also, unlike the angry god which the cast tried to exorcise, this monster cannot be exorcised, and the team didn't even try. It's only destroyed when the whole house was burned to the ground.

* YouGetMeCoffee: Mai's occasionally on the receiving end of this joke. Somewhat justified in the beginning since that's what her job entails and she had no powers to speak of.

Added DiffLines:

* FlatEarthAtheist: The world in general is skeptical of the supernatural despite it being quite demonstrably true. At one point, a teacher claims that ghosts are nonsense moments after seeing a 7 foot ghost dog tearing up a classroom.
