This doujinshi contains one story in three scenes. The first scene starts out with Eiko yelling across a table, at which all of the playable characters except Zidane and Garnet are seated. I don't know what she's furious about, but it seems to get on Steiner's nerves and makes everybody else uncomfortable. Zidane almost walks into that room, then realizes what's going on and stops. He leads Garnet, who now has short hair, away. The second story is a conversation between Zidane and Garnet on the deck of a ship, and the third is a conversation between Beatrix and Baku.

I don't have a clue as to what the story is about. I can translate snips of dialogue, but I'd probably need to read it all the way through to get the thread of the story. I suspect that the first two scenes take place on the Hilda Garde, first below decks and then above, and the third is set in Alexandria, as there is a bit of castle-like architecture in the background of one panel. The artwork is pleasant, at least. It's rather cartoony at the beginning, when Eiko is yelling at everyone else, but it turns more polished when the camera turns to Zidane and Garnet, and it stays that way for the rest of the doujinshi. The art is a lot more dynamic than the cover (which I found unappealingly static and posed-looking) would lead you to believe.
