Investigating mass phenomena in a high school? Again? We just had that in the last volume! In fact, most of this feels really repeated from the previous installment (even the fortune-telling bit is the same), with the only noteworthy difference being the character of Yasuhara.

Yasuhara is interesting but somewhat inexplicable. There is an author note that he was a character from the novel (I hadn't realized this was a novel as well), so perhaps he makes more sense if you've read that.

Yasuhara is amazing! Oh man... I love it! This part was greatness:

One of my favorite storylines was in this volume - the saddest one about the little boy Kenji who got "lost" while playing hide and seek. I liked the anime version of the story better than the manga - it was slightly tweaked in the anime. But still, I like the storyline and this part was super hilarious:

So far this is one of the better books in the series in my view; Ghost Hunt Vol. 4 has the atmosphere of the paranormal films that popped up in the early 2000's like The Ring, Dark Water, Fragile and Session 9.

The back of the book talks about one of the stories where 'a stinky smell sickens an entire classroom.' This reminds me of something that really happened in a local high school around fifteen years ago. There was a stinky smell that kept happening in a series of classrooms on the third floor of the school on one wing of the school only. The smell was overpowering, so much so that, even after opening the windows, students and teachers had to evacuate that section until the smell cleared.

Ghost Hunt: Volume 4 is a decent book, but suffers from a few major problems. I knew there were some problems over a year ago when I originally started to read this book, got about halfway through it and put it down in frustration. Since then, I have read quite a few manga books and I think I have figured out the issues.

The adaptation into "proper" English by David Walsh is horrible. Maybe his hands are tied and he is not allowed interpret what the characters should be saying, but when I was re
I wish they hadn't split up the case into two books. Sort of sucks that they did that. I really enjoy this case and the characters, having watched the anime show before this. However, I can't remember jack shit from the show about this case, except hints of the ending. It's a good one, but not my favorite. So, splitting it up really sucks. My library doesn't have these books, so I have to go through the interlibrary loan to get them. Meaning that it takes months for me to get books through it, ...more

Loved the Christmas side story - possibly the best case yet! Bit bummed that the main story is to be continued though.
