Doujinshi commentary: Touzoku no Kokoroe

Circle:    Mayumi Azuma    Touzoku no Kokoroe: Front Cover
Type:   Normal, gag doujinshi. 18 pages.
Date:   2000/12/29

The title on the front page translates to "Thief of knowledge." However, remove the final E from "kokoroe" and you have "kokoro," which means heart - "Thief of Hearts."

This doujinshi is mostly few gags ranging from 2 to 4 pages long. Stiltzkin sells Zidane a "mystery package" for 9,999,999 gil (have you ever made that much money in this game?). Zidane expects it to be something really powerful or useful, but instead it's... cheesecake pictures of a moogle. In another gag Eiko sticks googly eyes and a propeller into Salamander's hair (while he's not looking, of course!) so that from the back it looks like he has a Muppet on his head. These gags are pretty easy to get without any knowledge of Japanese. In another gag which does require some knowledge of Japanese, we see Eiko's version of herself and Vivi as adults. Same clothes, different bodies in 'em, and Vivi appears to be a 20-foot-tall tango dancer.

There are also some nice character pictures in this doujinshi, some of which are two-page spreads. The best-looking one is Steiner and Beatrix, but the binder crease running right down the middle makes it pretty impossible to scan and have look decent, so you'll just have to take my word for it.
