Title: Worlds End Garden
Circle: Sakura Ashika (aka Gokurakuin Sakurako)
Release Date: December 30, 2003
In her comments at the end, Sensei says she thought the official Orion manga ended too soon and she was left with a feeling of "Well, what happens now?"... so she wrote a doujinshi to make herself feel better. That's great, except I didn't really have that feeling after the manga, I have that feeling after her DOUJINSHI.
It's set 10 years or so down the line; Tomonori and Tsukasa are still living together, and wax poetic about their (clearly non-platonic) love for each other. Apparently, Mana has been sleeping, or sealed away, or something, for a while now. Kaname and Naoya (who, by the way, now has an eyepatch) are wandering together, shirtless for no apparent reason other than to show off their new attractive twenty-something bodies, and they head off to meet up with Tomonori and Tsukasa and "that red-haired guy". What? What the hell is going on? What happened to Mana? Where'd Shiba go? What happened to Naoya's eye~~? Damn, this doujinshi is just cruel, but if you've secretly thought that Tomonori and Tsukasa were meant to be a couple, the manga author is giving you permission to daydream. Cheers.
There's also a big spread in the back for the awesome Mindbreaker/Eraser pair from the manga. Did those two ever get names? I don't think they did, how pitiful. ;_; And we meet Tata, the little bat summons. He has a bow around his neck; that was surely Naoya's doing. I hope Gokurakuin-sensei comes back to fill in the gaps someday, but until then I'll shake my head in wonder and admire Kaname's new tattoo. :)
