Doujinshi commentary: Kimi no Soba ni wa

Circle:    unknown    Kimi no Soba ni wa: Front Cover
Type:   Normal, gag doujinshi. 26 pages.

Here we have a doujinshi drawn by artists with two similar styles. At a glance they're similar, both rather loose and rough. The easiest way to tell them apart is the lengths of the chins. One artist draws them triangular, the other almost makes them disappear. You can see what I mean if you look at the cover. The pointed-chin artist also hand-letters his or her pieces, and the handwriting isn't neat either. Ouch.

The first story is about Zidane and Garnet shopping. She likes the flowers there; Zidane picks one for her from the street. The other story involves Zidane, Garnet, Vivi, and Eiko, and involves Zidane and Garnet squabbling a fair bit while Eiko and Vivi watch. As you can gather, I can't really tell much about the stories; the appeal is largely visual.

The title of this doujinshi means "Close to You" or "Next to You." I had less luck with name of this circle. I tried my best, but all I could get was that the kanji are "big moon falcon man." I had no luck finding any compounds within that. (I know of the legenda of the woman's image on the moon, and the rabbit's image on the moon, but never a falconer on the moon.)
