The title of this doujinshi translates to "illusions town legend." Well, that's what the kanji mean; how the words actually go together eludes me.

This doujinshi starts out with a few short gags. For example, Zidane's prehensile tail is not only useful for picking things up but also as a place to tie ribbons onto, whether he wants them or now. In the main story, Gilgamesh - the four-armed man you first meet in Treno - tries to ingratiate himself with Eiko so he can get to Salamander. Then some other characters I'm not familiar with show up. And Gilgamesh's extra arms appear and disappear from picture to picture.

I like this doujinshi's art, arm count aside. And this is the first doujinshi I've seen in which Gilgamesh has appeared at all, let alone carried a story.
