How does the title to this one translate? Ayu o Okuru Onna... "Trout-Giving Woman"? I hate it when I can get all the words but can't put them together to make sense. I also had to track down the name of the second circle through their site. I recognized the first - they're easy to read if you know the kanji for fish and cat.

OK, enough of my scholarly chronicles. Here we have a shortish gag doujinshi. The first gag shows Blank and Zidane watching what looks like a TV show about doujinshi makers, which they find laughable. Another involves Quina cooking up frogs, and while I couldn't translate it, the image of Quina wearing lipstick will stay with me for a long time. Zidane, having trained his chocobo to Beak Level 99, has some alarming plans for it. And there are other gags, mostly featuring Zidane and Garnet, but with other characters like Vivi, Eiko, Ruby, Garland, Kuja, and Mikoto added in. There are also a pair of nice pinups, one by each circle.

The inner pages are printed on light green paper. It's not obtrusive, though at first glance it looked odd to me.
