Score!!!!!

Your desire for theories is understandable although a little vague in terms of what you want to talk about, Manju. Why not post some of your specific questions and ask for theories? Even with the spoiler knowledge we have, there is a whole lot that we don't know. If we answer everything as if they're theories and combine theories with factual knowledge but not say which is which would that be okay?

Or you could just put yourself out of your misery, give up the ghost (pun intended), and read the spoiler box or pm me.

But even if you read the spoiler box, you'll still have plenty of questions. I know I do.

Your volume 6, is that the English Del Rey publication? Are you saying it's out already?

I know Im being vague I dont mind thoeries being based on actual knowledge since I know you guys know more then me. I just dont want someone out right saying "Naru is...." (fill in blank with any number of questions you might have about him) Im sure once I read vol 6 Ill have pently more questions again

Any major questions I have at this point really cant be answered w/o someone spoiling it for me since deep down I do want specifics but Id rather find them out over time (yes I know Im insane)

one thing I do want to know

Yup, Del Rey's version. I just got it at Waldenbooks yesterday. I was pretty surprised that it came out so early but I'm not complaining.

Lucky you! I was at a Waldens yesterday. I looked. (Of course, I looked for it! Did you think I wouldn't? LOL) But it wasn't in. Unfortunately, that store is too far to make a casual jaunt to. I'll have to depend on stores closer to home.

Welcome back to Manju's half-baked Ghost Hunt discussion obession! OK something I noticed a few days ago but forgot to post and Im not tagging cuz its not a huge deal.

Anyone else notice that in vol 3, Monk-san is wearing a shirt near the end of the vol it has a 4 leaf clover on it (he also wears it in the anime). Now in the anime there is no writing on it but there is in the manga. But the writing changes each time they show it. First it says "been as not as" then when they show him again it says "the dragon" and then in the next panel it says "again cash"
Im lost as to this having any meaning but still it confuses me. Just something I noticed.

This Im gonna tag since its a potential spoiler to ppl who havent seen 7 or 10

I noticed the shirt messages changing too. At the moment, I chalk it up to the mangaka having some fun with us. Playing mind games or something. I haven't thought about it much to be honest. Random words -- especially random English words -- are often used as decoration in manga. The words don't have any purpose other than decorative in those cases. So I figured the shirt messages were along those lines. I wonder if the messages were in English in the original Japanese version?

Earlier, Manju asked me what I thought of the look Naru gives Mai at the end of volume 5. I didn't have a firm opinion at the time. Now I do.

Spoiler for conversation leading up to the look:


I guess that look over his shoulder could be an "I like to tease you" look. It could even be an "I like you" look. But neither feels right to me. I think the look is a "You just proved my point" look. The image of Naru feels too sad and disappointed to me for it to be either of the other looks.

Plus, Mai did just prove Naru's point. She automatically assumed the worst of him after his comment. What he said may not have been what people are socially conditioned to say at that moment. But that doesn't mean he met anything offensive about it either. If you think about Mai's personality, Naru is right. She's demonstrated his observation several times. And I think she did it again just then.

Oh nice! My brain-dead reasoning of late didnt even think of that. I dont even know what I thought he was doing (which is the reason I asked your opinion )
But that makes total sense she did prove his point. Man I hope they animate that scene

I developed this theory just tonight. It may need refining. Feel free to poke holes in it. In fact, you find holes in my logic, please poke at them. This is a question that definitely needs explanation.
