You mean another version of the novel

There already are a number of versions of the novel available actually...

SoftGarage Publishing has seven volumes of the novel anthology out since 2005.
Ichijinsha will release one next month.
SquareEnix has four versions that tie into the manga they have released.
MediaWorks has also released two called Higuarshi no Naku Goro ni Matsuri.

Is animeOnline saying these versions are not novels? And by the way the source animeOnline got this from is CannedDogs.

Yeah its still news but not the big deal that poster at anion made it sound like.

You're right, my bad for not

You're right, my bad for not doing a bit more research before posting :P
