This is the third doujinshi I've gotten that has a title parodying the Disney song "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo." Guess that's not too surprising when you think about it - Vivi's name, in Japanese, is "Bibi," and the song is about magic.

I'm rather proud of myself for being able to translate - okay, to read well enough to understand the non-visually-conveyed premise - one of the stories. Eiko has the bright idea that adults like Salamander like sake, and she and Vivi can be more like adults by emulating them. After expressions of shock and a lot of coughing, they compare notes, apparently pretending that they liked the stuff.

There are some other gags in this doujinshi, such as one about several character putting on a hat. Eiko's horn goes right through the crown, and it doesn't fit on top of Steiner's helmet. My guess is that it's one of those straw hats you find in a treasure chest that does nothing but look cool (though, like all other items of armor and add-ons, isn't visible).

The artwork in this doujinshi... well, it's okay. The best art is on the front cover (typical of doujinshi, actually) but inside, it's fair to decent, with a few bits that look weird to me.
