We'll be showcasing Ghost Hunt an anime befitting the month of October it follows a young high school student, Mai, who stumbles into the investigations of the Shibuya Paranormal Research team as her school has hired them to determine whether or not the legends surrounding its shuddered and condemned laboratory building are true. We will be hosting members of local paranormal research groups including Unseen Press and the Indiana Ghost Trackers who will be present for the duration of this screening. Both groups host regular tours of haunted locations throughout Indianapolis and Indiana as well as doing home investigations similar to the SPR researchers shown in the series. We will have time to swap our own ghost stories as well as hear from the professionals about the field. Getting a chance to see first hand the equipment and practices used by modern day paranormal researchers at IGT and Unseen Press and compare them to what we see in Ghost Hunt. Unseen press will also be sharing the sad tale of an Indianapolis Doctor that accounts state still roams the halls of her former home in a beautiful silk kimono, a tale that inspired some images from the world of anime inside and initialy piqued my interest in creating this meetup. IGT will also showcase some of their latest evidence gathered within their investigations perhaps even from the local legendary landmark, The Hannah House. After the screening our researchers will be staying on for a roundtable discussion taking questions from our group as well as discussing the Ghost Hunt series and in the process will give new meaning to the term spirited debate. And I hope to see you all there for the Game Works Ghost Hunt!
