Note: spoiler rules apply here. Spoilers must be tagged.

 

So, the novel's out at last! Let's all gather here and wait to read it and then discuss it at length! In the meantime, here's the sample Kadokawa posted on their website, consisting of the prologue and part of chapter 1, for your amusement.

I wasn't too sure about ether the film or the novel but it sounds interesting so far. I hope the rest is good.

Oooooh. I don't know what I was expecting, but I don't think it was this! Even more than usual, I feel like I'm going to have to read the entire novel before the beginning makes sense.

I love how this is written, it really is quite dreamlike.  Ghost girl manages to be mesmerizing even in text.  Definitely excited to read the rest.

I like how the movie and novel are a bit more like Spirit Camera than the main Fatal Frame games. It's not some haunted house or village where the main characters get lost or spirited away. It's something that follows you even in everyday life and makes an otherwise normal location a bit terrifying. I can't wait to read more!

Dig in. More chapters coming soon. Unless the host decides it doesn't like the word "proxy" again.

First half of chapter 3 is up. And, roughly 16,500 words, 84 pages and a third of the book down the line, this seems like a good time for our first rundown.

 

Spoiler

 

You know, reading through this, what really strikes me is precisely how much they seem to have changed for the movie (in fact Aya and Michi's roles alone have changed entirely). Normally you'd think the source material would be the most fanservice-y (in terms of references to the games, not the girls kissing girls constantly), when it actually seems to be that the novel has nothing to do with the games and the film has gone back and put all of that stuff in. Sounds like Mari Asato and co have been doing a fantastic job with it. More excited to see it than ever.

I thoroughly agree with Homuranagi about the movie vs. the book.

Reading the other chapters now.I don't know why,but I get a vampire feel out of this lol,I mean,the way the novel is written ,it's a bit like Carmilla,and I like it.It has a classical feel to it (and I absolutely love classical literature).I must agree,the ghost girl did mesmerize me too.
