Doujinshi commentary: Aries

Circle:    ?    Aries: front cover  
Type:   Normal, gag doujinshi. 19 pages.





This is a short-short doujinshi by... well, I can't tell what the name of the circle is, or where it's listed. Hopefully I'll be able to find out.

This comic is mostly short gag stories, most of which I really couldn't figure out. The limitations of my grasp of Japanese, ah well. The speech bubbles are hand lettered, which can pose a real problem for those not fluent in the written language. (Have you ever tried to look up sloppily doodled Kanji? Good luck!) However, the writing is fairly neat, so it was not too much of a problem except when I misinterpreted things because of the slope of the lines.

Well, I can talk a little more coherently about the characters used in the comic. One story is a dialogue between Garnet and Queen Brahne, apparently about Garnet's father. Two other gags star Blank and Marcus. These are fairly unusual choices of focus; we usually get the "star characters" carrying the show, with the others following quietly along.
