I’ve had a watchful eye on Kazuaki since my purchase of kaiyorihito/kaiyorishiki (1) in late 2007. Kazuaki’s popularity seemed to explode with the Starry☆Sky illustrations and now we have a glorious artbook. Honestly, I was only so excited about it, but it far exceeded my expectations. So I want to post a low quality pic preview of a few pages to hypnotize convince others to buy it. This book is HUGE at 250+ pages. The binding appears to be decently sturdy and the paper and print quality is top-notch.
There's cute Kazuaki girls
I have a confession. For the most part, I don’t like when fangirls pair up painfully straight male characters with no homosexual inclinations or mistake true animosity for “sexual tension.” The furthest I’ll regularly go is US x UK in Hetalia and well… Himaruya EGGS me on with that anyway. As a result, Hetalia makes up the largest part of my modest doujinshi collection, followed by Togainu no Chi and Lamento. Once jpqueen went under (sob), I stopped buying doujinshi since it became too much of a hassle and cost prohibitive.
I was pawing through my doujinshi and came across a little gem I had forgotten–one that managed to convincingly ship a pairing that I really didn’t care for, nor had felt the subtext, in less than 16 pages. The doujinshi in question was a Persona 3 (original P3) doujinshi named Samui Yoru ni Miru Yume by Shikibu Akira. I wasn’t even interested in buying P3 dj (I have 3 total); I think I bought it because it was cheap and had nice colors on the cover. It turned out to be a great find.
Gutters from hell warning–no way I’m bending this baby! As a side note, I’m collecting larger scans and even some pages I don’t end up using in entries in my tumblr, so if you’d like to see nicer pics, head on over there.
