  • Adult Child: Cecile Lafitte, Kujo's teacher. Sophie could qualify as this as well.

Adult Child has been renamed to One of the Kids. In order for this to be an example of the trope, the character's childishness has to be from or demonstrated by interacting with children. This example can be added back with context relevant to the trope if it fits.

So ummm....does the title "Gosick" mean anything?

I believe the page mentions that it's a corruption of 'Gothic', though I'm not sure of the precise veracity of that.

Knowing the Japanese peoples' Gratuitous English it is probably true.

I worked this one out while on break at work. Take "Gothic", translate it to the nearest kana, then romanise the result. It's a shame, I think the series would have more appeal as "Gothic" then "Gosick", given the propensity for us English speakers to see two words there and say it like go-sick.
