YMMV / Ghost Sweeper Mikami

Go To

  • Arc Fatigue: The whole Ashtaroth saga takes forever, with a lot of lame plot twists.
  • Awesome Music: The opening of the anime is catchy as the afterlife that ghosts goes to, but it is pretty awesome at least when you hear it.
  • Chileans Love Tadao Yokoshima
    • Argentinians Love Mikami: Ask any Argentinian about "a certain series about a redheaded ghost hunter', nine times out of ten, they'll exclaim: "MIKAMI!"
  • Draco in Leather Pants: The cast, really, but mostly Mikami

  • Ear Worm: Dear 'GOD', the opening was catchy as hell. See above.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Luciola. Being Yokoshima's first real love—as in, not the primarily-lust he held towards Mikami—helps a lot, it seems.
    • For that matter, Yokoshima himself. Even in-universe, arguably.
  • Growing the Beard: After Yokoshima entered the GS Tournament and won his own spirituals Abilities, the series changes a lot. The style changes, giving more screen time to battles and less to Gag and Ecchi. Also, it starts focusing a lot on Yokoshima who stops only being the series Butt-Monkey to develop into the series' God-Mode Sue and Butt-Monkey (at the same time).
  • Les Yay: Standard operating procedure for Suzume.
    • Strongly implied that Meiko has a crush on Mikami.
  • Macekre: The movie's English dub by Manga Entertainment.
    • To give an example of the dub's quality, Manga Entertainment reversed the order of Reiko Mikami's name to "Mikami Reiko" which doesn't make sense for an English translation note , you'd think someone would've spot checked that, but no it made it through. And that's the least of this dub's problems.

  • Moe: Okinu.
  • The Scrappy: Poor Saijou...
  • So Bad, It's Good: The "Engrish" version of the opening which was sung by Ami Mimatsu instead of Chie Harada, in fact, you still have to read the lyrics to understand what she's saying.
  • Tear Jerker: This last chapter of the "Death Zone" arc.
    • And then there's Yokoshima's Heroic BSoD after having to personally destroy the energy crystal to stop Ashtaroth, even though that zeroes any chance of resurrecting Luciola.
