The Akuryou Series


Ghost Hunt is a novel written by Ono Fuyumi. It was released between 1989 – 1994. It has a manga (1998 - Present) and anime (3 October 2006 – 27 March 2007) adaption. This series was originally called the "Akuryou Series" (悪霊シリーズ).

The manga was renamed to "Ghost Hunt," and since the anime was based on the manga, it adopted the title "Ghost Hunt" instead of "Akurei" (the original title). "Akurei" (悪霊) roughly translates to "Evil Spirits."

This project has recently been revived by Sinmay, whose LiveJournal can be found here. If you enjoy reading the translations, be sure to head over and say thanks!

September 2015: Please note that Yumemi Sayaka is in the midst of editing volume 1 & 2 before hopefully moving on to the translation and completion of volume 3, your patience is much appreciated :). Decided to keep project status as "stalled" first as am not sure how long editing volume 1 & 2 will take. Thanks!

March 2016: Witchhuntress is continuing the translations starting from Volume 3.

August 2016: After a long break, Witchhuntress will resume translations of Volume 3 on September, 2016. She hopes to update once a week or two as usual.

September 2016: Sera131 is currently translating Volume 6. Chapter updates should occur every one to two weeks.


Translation

Registration

Translators are asked to register which chapters they're working on (see the Guideline page for usage rules).

Format Standards

The majority of the translations come from the Chinese version If you spot any inconsistencies, feel free to edit, as this is an open wiki. The translation for volume 3 is from the Japanese version (volume 3 hasn't been translated in Chinese), but since the translator is learning Japanese as she goes along, feel free to edit.

September 2015: Editing for the existing novels are being done by reference to the Japanese version of the novels, however please note that Yumemi Sayaka is not re-translating the entire existing novels, she is merely going through the English version and checking it against the Japanese version where inconsistencies have arisen. Feel free to edit if you notice anything out of place.
