Re-Kan!: Complete Collection (2015/Season One/Sentai Blu-ray Set)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: C Episodes: B+

Narumi Inoue just met Amami, the new girl in school ...and would love to be her friend. Only thing is, she seems to be able to see and talk with ghosts ...and Inoue has a phobia of anything even slightly supernatural. However, Amami is so kind that even the spirits can't stay away from her, will Inoue ever get the chance to be friends with her?

In Re-Kan! Complete Collection (2015), Amami has the ability to see and talk with ghosts, but she is so sweet and kind that even the most vengeful spirits can't help but fall in love with her and become her friend. While most of Amami's friends have gotten used to her talking to thin air and accepted that there are supernatural phenomenons around her, Inoue-san is in serious denial. All the ghosts end up becoming more like Amami's friends/familiars and guardian spirits, but the more Inoue-san sees how she helps the ghosts and spirits the more she learns sometimes the best of friendships require a bit of supernatural help.

This was a comical anime spirits tale about ghosts and friendship. In a nutshell, it's like a Japanese version of Casper and Friends. Each episode was like a day learning how to be friends to help treat everyone and everybody with kindness and understanding and it will be returned in kind.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image is consistently fine, if not up there with a growing group of Sentai's very best, while the lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo with Pro Logic-like surrounds is warm and fine, if not with any sonic surprises, making for a solid combination. Extras include clean opening and closing animations and trailers.
