Another day, another gag doujinshi. This one has several gags centering around Vivi creeping people out. In one, Dagger asks Vivi where he keeps his staff; the answer is that he knows the sword swallower's trick. (How does he handle the knob at the end?) Zidane sees something during the Madain Sari "male bonding" scene that startles him. Garnet sees Vivi without his hat - his face is pixel-censored out - and, calling him a monster, rackets him into orbit.

Of course, there are gags on other topics. In one Quina looks moody. Eiko assumes from the symptoms that s/he must be in love. Who is it that makes hir heart beat faster? "Zidane aru." Talks kind of break down then. In another Steiner is offended by the ugly doll that is supposed to represent Princess Garnet - he just happens to have a much better one!

The art in this one is good. Not fantastic, but certainly competent. It conveys the gags clearly, if it doesn't call attention to itself. I did notice that the artist manages to put some expression into Quina, both facial and body language, which is not easy to do.
