Circle: CJ East Project (CJ Michalski and Koujima Naduki)
Release Date: December 1996
Anyway, this is a Biohazard (Resident Evil) parody book made up of a bunch of shorts from both mangaka and a few guest artists who like to put poor Chris Redfield in embarrassing situations too. The "main" story follows Jill Valentine through the game, as she slowly uncovers the disturbing secrets of the mansion. CJ-sensei manages to slash Barry and Enrico, probably just because Koujima-sensei didn't think it could be done. This book is definitive proof, if you needed it, that CJ-sensei has many other perversions besides her raging Shota-con.
It's fun reading CJ and Koujima go back and forth, since even though this book is twisted, it's clear that they really love the game. I laugh out loud every time I go near this doujinshi, so apparently I'm sick in the head as well. Koujima-sensei manages a great Chris. CJ-sensei's Jill and Rebecca are too adorable, but her Leon Kennedy manages to top them both. And "Go Go Wesker" is probably one of the greatest chapter titles ever created.
Circle: Tsuredure-Haien (Kitakami Ren)
Release Date: October 2003
The author is, apparently, Kitakami Ren-sensei. And she has lovely art and, if this book is any indication, a real knack for writing Hughes. I may not know who she is now, but I'm willing to try. "echoes" is a combined book, of the original doujinshi "echo" and "echo+", logically enough. They're both fairly serious, with a bit of humor sprinkled in (echo+, with its major series spoilers, is actually the more light-hearted of the two). Kitakami-sensei doesn't try to recreate the original artstyle nor timing; these scenes are her own. I'm interested to see more from her circle... randomly choosing doujinshi is much pricier than randomly choosing manga, but this book was a happy accident. :)
Title: Aqua Rose No. 9
Circle: Takaguchi Satosumi
Release Date: December 2001
Rather than just focusing on one series, "Aqua Rose" contains a combination of original doujinshi, short stories related to published manga, advertisements, and mini-essays. This particular volume contains episodes for two original manga; short stories related to her manga Pink, Sakendeyaruze!, and Utsukushii Otoko; and a very long doujinshi for "Legend of Galactic Heroes". As a huge Takaguchi-sensei fangirl, I personally loved the Sakendeyaruze! short; there's something so cute about the stories that remind you Tenryuu-san is blind as a bat.
Like most Takaguchi-sensei works, any sex scenes contained within (and there are a few) are rather mild. Having said that, one of the original stories has probably the most explicit sex scene I've ever seen from Takaguchi-sensei. Everything is blurred beyond recognition, but there are a few panels where things are less implied than usual with this artist.
Not only is the doujinshi HUGE, but the quality isn't too shabby either. Plus, the cover is needlessly cool, embossed with a strange "paint splatter" pattern (it's clear and therefore doesn't show up in the pictures, unfortunately). And, of course, there's a full cover splash page towards the beginning, protected by a sheet of rice paper. How she has time to do, you know, ACTUAL manga writing, I really don't know.
Title: Seimaden: Kinku
Circle: Kirendou (Higuri You)
Release Date: August 1997 [First Printing], August 1998 [Second Printing]
Besides the manga, the pages are filled with low resolution, b/w reprints of Seimaden shots. The cover is quite nice, with a good pearl finish. Apparently, Higuri-sensei is also a big fan of shiny objects. ^_^
Title: HEAVEN HEAVEN
Circle: Kirendou (Higuri You)
Release Date: December 2004
This doujinshi, btw, was "acquired" by Mako-chan for my birthday. Yes, she had her paws on this and actually gave it up. Now THAT is friendship (lol).
