Review
This volume is a direct continuation of volume 6 so if you wanted to just drop into the series the previous volume would be a good place to start. Volume 7 is essentially the second part of a two book case. Events are really heating up as other researchers are disappearing. Their analysis of the house is throwing up more problems than it solves as it seems thereís probably yet another secret space in the house, but one they are sure is totally sealed off.The sealed room idea is a classic and seems to appear extremely often in supernatural manga. The whole mystery here of course is, what is inside the sealed room and how are victims getting in or perhaps more importantly how is whatever causing the disturbance getting out?

Like the previous volume the story really seems to flow much better. The characterisation is also a lot more interesting as little tidbits about each of the character. The horror imagery is again extremely overt, with the traditional blood writing on the walls and clawing hands. It also visits medical horror imagery easily the best and scariest images of the book. The links to horror classic Dracula really cheapened things, it wouldnít have taken much more effort to invent a suitably evil text as the inspiration and source of the problems. Itís hard to believe that people wouldnít suspect foul play when a house is owned by someone whose pen name is Urado a Japanese corruption of Vlad.


Ghost Hunt is a lot of fun, itís exactly what youíd expect from this kind of horror series, no more and no less.

Rating: 7/10
