This is a small A4 (5.75" x 8.25") doujinshi. Its story is a quiet little one centering on Vivi. He goes back to Quan's cavern, which is large and empty, dwarfing him. Zidane meets him there. They talk a bit, and then Zidane hands him a sealed letter. It's later opened among Vivi's "sons", who are excited to see the tickets inside. But the mood cools somewhat, and one asks Vivi if he wants to go with them. Vivi answers "Boku?" ("Me?"), and then we see a montage of the others looking pensively at the sky from their various locations.

That was a dry summary, wasn't it? I didn't do too good at conveying the mood of this doujinshi, which is what I find most interesting. I plan to come back to this one when I get better at translating; I want to know what he and Zidane talk about, and exactly what put a chill on the ticket scene. I did notice that there are six clones plus the original Vivi, and we only saw six at the end of the game, so perhaps he didn't go, for whatever reason.

I don't normally go for tacky humor - in these reviews, at least - but I can't resist the visual straight line the cover provides. Sheesh, Vivi, lay off the broccoli!
