It's supposed to be getting published in two months, so I feel it should have its own thread, even though we actually know less about it than the movie so far. Here's what we do know:
- It's written by Eiji Otsuka, who's known for Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service
- It's an original story, not a novelisation of an existing game, and the movie is an adaptation of it (and I wish news sites would stop claiming either the novel or the film have anything to do with FF1, that is a pernicious rumour)
- Its official title is apparently "Zero: A Curse Affecting Only Girls"
I'm really looking forward to getting a new novel, but that title is... um... quite something. "Zero: The Movie" is snappy by comparison.
