In preparation for Halloween, ghosts, goblins, witches, warlocks, vampires, and zombies will appear on screen, and two series will vanish from the schedule. The witches and warlocks dabble with black magic as Tweeny Witches comes to an end. Kantaro exorcises one last ghost in Tactics, and Loki exorcises a virtual vampire. If that's not enough, a ghost also haunts the police in You're Under Arrest: Fast and Furious.
