Y. S. Wong chapter 26 . 3/29/2015
Dat partial autobiography.

Between Voice Chan and Revolver Chan, the Chan family seems to play a pretty big role in this arc. And another cliffy. (*w*)
Y. S. Wong chapter 25 . 3/29/2015
The patient driver. The loving mother. The bubbly nurse. Dat despair ;(tilde);

Dat character development for Yuri-chan. (*w*) I hope this means the ending that I want. Because if not...


Cliffy with Yuri-chan locked up. Normally this would be cause for much mischief and fun, but nooooooo, my desired happy ending is in jeopardy! ;(tilde);

I'm guessing that young man is Hideaki. And he's the skeleton guy's colleague? Wow. So they were in this together all along.

Love the dark humor sprinkled throughout the work, and Masaru seems to be a nice reference to yourself (and every other writer out there - I know the feeling of staring at an empty computer screen, typing a word and then watching helplessly as the backspace key flies past and render my past efforts for naught). Awesome story as always. I wonder what the soup lady is up to? And how will Kenichi ever return to his senses?

"Ryou hated hospitals." Thought you were talking about Arubin-san for a moment. u


Michi being traumatized by the horror flick. MOE.

Weird chapter.

Kudos to those who understood the usage of a more than two-year old meme above. I’ve always wanted to use that meme! OuO

You know that it’s a great story when you just hungrily look forward for the next chapter to come out, and that when it makes the top of one’s priority list in a moment’s notice of receiving that e-mail notification that a new chapter has come out. Such is my love for GeeGee. Ghost Gunslinger. Alright, review time!

First, I just adore the title. Obviously, it’s a reference to a fairly popular classic novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” which I haven’t read, but I’ve seen it being a reference to titling in general. I really enjoy when a title alone evokes such powerful emotions from the very beginning. In this case, the feelings of anxiety mixed with excitement towards what’s to come are much powerful. Good job, Katsu-chin! dOwOb

The opening scene was most definitely impactful. I shall now revise my speculations from the previous chapter review, given the new info presented. So, it would seem that Kenichi’s new revolver from Bones does not cause brain control or any form of controlling per se, instead, it has the ability to bring out the worst desires and deepest negative thoughts from a person, and amplify them to a point of it being expressed in violent actions. It taps on the deepest darkness of a person, the suppressed hatred, and brings it all out in an unrelenting wave. I really like the symbolism of the bullet point being the heart, making that the connection between the soul and the body. I’m just kinda rambling of course, but these kinds of themes are just really a delight for me!

Midori’s hidden strength. I really enjoy learning new things about characters, and it’s always just a joy to see! Although just only for a moment, the lighthearted moment of Midori swinging that trashcan to knock Tetsuo out brought a smile to my face. Of course, it wasn’t too much that it ruined the ambiance altogether, but it was a quick, but well-appreciated breath of relief before things got going intense again!

Hideaki Yamamoto. It’s been a while, but all the same, the feeling of deep ire from just the mere sight of his name is an indication that he truly is a well-written douchepickle. I mean, I hate him, but the way he’s written is just. . . really good, as it would bring about such solid emotions from me. It’s a good thing that Yuriko’s opened her eyes to the reality that he’s just a huge ass jerk. It’s not definite yet and my interpretation might be wrong, but it would seem that Hideaki uses some form of. . . deception. An ability that makes people think of him positively and be pulled into him in an unnatural, forced, but imperceptible manner. I can’t find the proper words to describe it, but I think he can turn people comfortable and fond of him unwillingly. Like a spell or a charm. And Yuriko was just another victim of it, until she had seen the bare reality of who Hideaki was and broke herself free off that spell. Of course, it’s probably a misinterpretation given my current mushy mental state, but I think it’ll all be clear soon! :3

All in all, I once again enjoyed this chapter, as I expected I will. At the last scene of this chapter, there was just so much strong emotions that burst out, specifically from Yuriko. As Yuriko was sealed off and put off commission, there was just this overwhelming feeling of helplessness that I felt. Who was going to help them now? Only Yuriko is left to believe in Kenichi. Speaking of Kenichi, going back to the first scene, there was just this powerful feeling of suffering and emptiness emanating from him. He’s suffering so much deep inside, and Yuriko can feel that.

Who will be able to help Yuriko now? Midori can only go so far, and all the exorcists are selfish adults. And Takeshi isn’t to be trusted anymore, as he might be the Crimson King. The feeling of despair that Yuriko is feeling just really resonates with me, and I’m just really looking forward to the next chapter! :3 You really do make some damn great cliff hangers, Katsu-chin! They’re not always over-the-top intense, but the sense of them just making you want the next chapter as soon as you can get it is just solidly present always.

So, yeah! I’m hungrily looking forward to the next chapter! Once again, thank you so much for a delightful read! :333
cud-b-better chapter 22 . 3/22/2015
Wow has Kenichi taken on a new form was that wine/water or whatever done something to him? I'm guessing this series is going to end with a fight between Kenichi and Yuriko just to bring out more of my tears. Loved the jokes about wanting to see genitalia.

A somewhat sinister end to the arc, very well done.
cud-b-better chapter 21 . 3/22/2015
NOOOOOO! Sobs, you really are good at jerking the tears out of people. Haiiro was the best and now. Their friendship was the best and so dynamic, this story constantly jumps from funny to outright upsetting. Where do poltergeists go when destroyed? You maybe gone but never forgotten.
xXxd chapter 25 . 3/22/2015
Yay for Kenichi's perspective! Turning everyone into deviants? You have to stop him, Voice-chan!

Yay for ping pong piang! Why you no have fanservice though? Some ripped cassock would do fine! Or even Hideki accidentally burning his own clothes instead! Poor Tetsuo. Hopefully you bought some insurance for yourself. Maybe his relatives would go after the exorcists in his stead.

Uh oh. Now it has evolved into an all out war. Why you no constrict Yuriko, Takeshi? Some fanservice would be greatly appreciated!
cud-b-better chapter 20 . 3/22/2015
Its been a long time so I can't remember everything that happened previously but anyway.

No...Haiiro. My image of you has been destroyed damn Katsu the best character I can only see this ending in tears. That aside I felt this came on a little bit suddenly but the chapter is definitely very well written and another tragedy looks like it is going to take place.

Anyway just minor typos think I noticed:

You [are] there back then, weren't you? - [were] x 2
Tomoyuki Tanaka chapter 25 . 3/22/2015
Oh my goodness. Things had just gone extreme. It's like there's no way back now. Everything is growing darker and darker, and everything just turned...for the worse. Hideaki, Takeshi, etc. They all revealed their true nature. That's scary. That's really scary.

And Kenichi...he might be the best villain ever.

Speaking of which, the nurse who tortured her patients? Was she the same nurse as the one who bullied poor Ryou? If she is, I'm going to laugh and say serve her right.
Benedict A.86 chapter 24 . 3/19/2015
Oho! Well lookey here.
Dog pls chapter 24 . 3/16/2015
Yet another completely satisfying chapter. It was so worth it getting home today after such a long day at school and just indulging in this new GG chapter! Really, it just feels like such a great reward. Thank you so much! Okay, let’s get on with the review!

Ryou is back! Yaaay! I missed him so much! He’s such a very very cool supporting character! Like, I’ve never once encountered someone who spoke single-word sentences, and I must just say that that’s just pure awesome! Damn, and that third person limited internal monologue is awesome! I was kinda surprised that he does have full-length monologues as opposed to what he says, and that can be a very interesting facet of his personality, if you think about it. Anyways, I just love his personality! Go, go, you badass old uncle man, you! Don’t let that nursy treat you like a baby!

Whoa, whoa, whoa! So much development here! And I luv it. LUV IT! Mr. Takeshi. . . the Crimson King?! Has he always been the Crimson King, or did the Crimson King off him and took his place? And are the Moritas also in cahoots with the Crimson King as well? Dang, I feel like I might be really missing something here. . . is it just because I’m a bit groggy after a long day, or. . . Hmmnh! It just means that I should definitely reread the whole GG from the very beginning like as soon as I can! Either way, that hospital scene where the Crimson King/Mr. T and Ryou conversed. . . that was so powerful. Really, really powerful! When there was this quick inserting flashback/vision that Ryou saw, it was all so clear and perfectly timed and it felt as if I was watching something rather than reading it, or to be more specific, it was almost like it was playing inside my own mind! That’s how good it is! And that line! That line!

“If beauty is nothing but a patchwork of lies sewn to hide ugly truths—
And snow does that by hiding every vandalized wall, every polluted canal behind a gloss of heavenly white—
Then I suppose you are right, Ryou—
Snow is beautiful.”

Ohhh that felt so heavy and dark and so, so awesome! Sent some goooood chills down my spine (OwO)! I wish I could so much power and sharpness in such few words! HNNGH! -proceeds to worship Katsu-chin-

Waaah, I sure hope Ryou will be fine fine. . . Rrrgh, you just feel that darkness is creeping over everything, and it just gets me further and further excited to read more!

I really enjoyed the whole use of snow and it’s theme. It’s just. . . so strange that it’s almost as if I could feel the cold and see the snow falling as I read this chapter and as the scenes play out in my mind in Ultimate High Definition. Anyways, it’s just really fitting too to the current arc. I really liked the description of the snow falling around the Crimson King and not a flake landing on him. It’s such wonderful, vivid imagery that’s just excellent even given the minimalistic nature of your writing. Your writing really impresses me to no end, Katsu-chin!

It very nice seeing Yuriko and Midori together. I mean, they’ve been pretty important female characters, and the way they’re bonding is not only really adorable, but really warm-y feel-y as well. I trust in those two. Especially Yuriko-chan. I know. I know she’ll be able to save him. I know she will. So stop moping around, gurl! I can empathize to the sadness you feel, I really do. But you just have to believe in yourself and do what you have to do! You owe a dorky gunslinger your love and appreciation! Well, it’s not as if she’s just been sitting down. I know that she’s doing everything she can. And that’s why I know she’ll succeed.

I see. Rereading the previous chapter earlier and with the last scene of this chapter as well, it seems that Kenichi’s new revolver (1) can hit living people, (2) does not kill them, (3) enchants them into some sort of brain control but with the heart and that’s really cool! Oooh, oooh! I'm going to make a prediction! I think that there'll be a Yuriko vs. Kenichi showdown sometime in this arc, and it will be the most epic and dramatic thing ever! (OuO)

Thank you, Katsu-chin, for such another amazing, extremely enjoyable chapter! I enjoyed it so, so very much! I remember when new chapters for arc 2 would come in at least once a week, I would so look forward to it and treat it like such a great treat. And guess what? That feeling’s back, and it’s even stronger than it was! Next chapter please! But don’t rush, okay? I gotta reread Arc 1 and Arc 2 too! OwO

See you in the next chappie (or in Skypu, probably :333)!

cmaej chapter 24 . 3/15/2015
Damn, this is dark as hell. But I should have expected this after the last chapter.

Wait... throwing yourself off a skyscraper to initiate telepathic contact? That sounds like Twilight. /punted

I don't think Yuriko's father is the Crimson King; he just took his place somewhere during the story. I believe that Takeshi is the one suffering in hell in that brief scene. I hope he gets rescued.

Awww... Midori and Yuriko are now closer friends. It makes sense since they both lost someone who they never admitted that they love. And is that one of the orphans who has appeared?


Sorry for skipping reviews, but I'm still readin'!
xXxd chapter 24 . 3/15/2015
I would probably react the same way as Ryou did if I ever encountered such an eerily elated, sadistic nurse. Let's revolutionise the new stereotypes of nurses! (Are you planning to give her a name?)

Dat reveal though. It overturned every single interpretation that I had about Takeshi, and his descendants as well. Now, I doubt she is biologically related to him. An orphanage possessing links to the characters' origin would be my guess.

A good friend Midori is. We all need somebody like her in our life.

Creepy insurance agent. Is this story going to turn into an undead apocalypse?

A chapter filled with anguish, but the next one will have Yuriko sprinkling holy water! Kill dem undeads!
