That sounds great! I am doing my PhD piece as a critical study into 'Ringu' 
in all its varied incarnations (books, films, grafic novels, manga, Tv 
series) examining issues of representation and the impact of regional 
ideologies and mythologies. Hopefully youe book will be in print in the next 
four years and it can help me along!
