Plot: Re-Kan! is about a high school girl with the ability to talk to animals, and can see and interact with the supernatural. The series is based off the Manga of the same name.

Review: The series does well with making comedy out of supernatural horror elements. The story starts out lite, and halfway through gets serious and less comedic. The episodes pace well, and ends before the comedy aspect starts becomes too worn out or predictable. the final 13th episode feels out of place after the more serious emotional 12th episode and suspect that was a special, or latter released OVA after the series ended.

Despite having highschool “template” characters, the uniqueness of supernatural horror comedy, and enough plot and character depth with the two main characters was enough for me to give it a of 4 out of 5. Lack of character development with the other friends, and the perverted cat was almost almost enough for me to drop my grade to 3 out of 5.

My Grade: 4 out 5 “Loved It”
