Hmm...

Still reading GH rewrite Vol 1, and I have to admit that while it is the same story, there's definite additions so far to the story. How much of this will continue in the subsequent vols though is a bit questionable since so much is showing up here. ^^; (I'm still only on pg 137 out of 362.) So far, other than the ghost stories mentioned by Mai et al., changes to the story include Bou-san doesn't call Ayako by name when he kicks down the door in the old school house, Ayako's explanation of what happened and how she ended up locked in the room, explanation about the difference between a 'chirei' and 'jibakurei' sic earth elemental vs human spirit tied to a place, explanation of diffs between a 'ghost' and a 'spirit', glossing over of the various accidents that supposedly happened in the old school building (no showing of the actual file), removal of Kuroda claiming to having had her hair pulled and being strangled by a ghost, Kuroda claiming that there was a girl's ghost in the base and her also claiming that the sounds they heard were 'rap sounds' before leaving Mai alone in there (before Naru returns), and Naru explaining about the term 'rap sounds' and how it came to be called such in Japanese afterwards when he finally arrived at the old school house. Lots of little bits and pieces here and there that were mostly added in to the story. I guess that would also explain why the rewrite is >100 pgs longer than the original. ^^;;

BTW, out of curiosity, has anyone written to Del Rey and asked if they were going to try to license the light novels? Just curious.

Otherwise, on the anime front, I've been watching Gosick and think I'll follow this series this season. I don't know how the English version is, but I've started peeking at the light novel for this series. Hopefully I'll be able to actually sit down with it one day and just read them. :P
