Otherwise, while reading the bunko version of the manga for Ghost Hunt (yes I've collected just about everything for GH I could get my hands on except for the very first novel (long since out of print--even longer than the novel series has been out of print. Also involves a different character set from what I've read online about it) and I believe there's a reprint of the second bunko manga release. It was sold out when I tried nabbing it and disappeared for awhile as it went into a second printing), I ran into a short note that Silent Christmas was a kakioroshi SS by Ono Fuyumi which would suggest it's canon although fully an SS. ^^; The other thing I forgot about (and noticed again while reading the manga) is that there's a scene in the SS for the park story at the very *beginning* that's canon. I don't remember where the scene's supposed to be, but it's not in the anime. A lot of stuff is missing from the anime especially in the current file which makes me wonder if they're not going to reveal certain mysteries. Certainly that aspect has (so far) been carefully not mentioned as far as I can recall. :/
And speaking of not mentioned, two scenes I was looking forward to for Shoumyou weren't done. ;_; Ep 16 & 17 covered the second book of the Kazane arc (IIRC), and there's a really funny scene between Akiko, Masahiro, and Mokkun (and Seimei, Yoshimasa, and Genbu) that I was *really* looking forward to. Especially since it's probably the last major bit of comedy for the rest of the series maybe?? The second ;_; scene was at the end of 17. They pulled the scene back to the anime's concept rather than going with the novel's dialogue. I really wish we could've had just a touch more for that scene. Especially what Masahiro told Guren. ;_;
Oops. It's very late. Bed. >.
