Ghost Hound is not scifi. It's a "Spiritual Animation" with themes of occult and spiritualism. Shirow is NOT writing the story, he simply co-conceived the idea with Production IG. The writer and director duo for Lain is handling the anime series with character designs from the Hell Girl character designer.

The trailer at TAF mainly showed the girl in the picture lying in a dead-like position while having flashbacks or visions of herself running up some stairs before a shadow being covers the sky and reaches for her. There are other characters that look like high school students, and there's a school setting but overall the area seems to be the more rural part of Japan similar to Spirited Away or Totoro with tons of greenary and old looking places.

The series starts airing on WOWOW in the Fall.
