SAMURAI SPIRITS ~ SHIZEN NO UTAGE

Never played this game, but it only cost me $2 for the following lot, so I decided I might as well take them along with the King of Fighters doujinshi and get the most out of my shipping. ^^; I did do some research beforehand and Galford/Nakoruru seems cute, even if one-sided on poor Galford's part. Nakoruru is too devoted to her duties as a Kamui priestess to indulge in earthly matters.

Very cute and funny! Galford bandages Nakoruru's arm while holding her and there is even a family portrait portraying their possible future children. In one story, Rera plots to steal Galford from Nakoruru! Bitch fight! :D

Focuses on Nakoruru and Galford in modern times (school uniforms, Galford wearing glasses!). One or two flashbacks with them in their original clothes, so perhaps they've been reincarnated and reunited in the present day? Comes with a nice full-colour spread (the drawing is the back cover illustration but with Galford's dog, Poppy, included).

Aww, this might be my favorite Galford x Nakoruru doujinshi. I'm already a fan of Ryo Kanmu's work from Final Fantasy VII and this Samurai Spirits book doesn't disappoint. This is actually a collection of several different Galford/Nakoruru stories, so while the book itself was published in 1995, there is artwork dating back to as early as 1994. Beautiful artwork and heart-warming stories. My favorites: Galford 'kidnaps' and blindfolds a sleeping Nakoruru and takes her to see a beautiful sunset; Galford pushes Nakoruru out of the path of an avalanche which causes Nakoruru to cry. Hee hee, she kisses him in his unconscious state. :)

Oooh, some very nice artwork in here. An all girls book including Street Fighter, Virtua Fighter, King of Fighters, and Samurai Spirits. Haha, there's one story with Mai straddling 'Andy', but I think this is actually Terry with his hair down sans hat. Andy walks into the living room with a bag of groceries only to find Mai half naked on top of his brother. That, of course, freaks him out though I'm not sure of the actual reason (whether he likes Mai or annoyed because she's trying to get in his pants again). XD

Title: Nakoruru: Another Story

Pairing: Nakoruru + Rimururu, Rera

During a camping trip in the woods, Nakoruru and her little sister, Rimururu, rush back to their village but instead of the lush, bustling town they remember, it has transformed into a decaying mess; gnarled tree branches protrude from dilapidated houses and snake across the village like poison ivy. Amongst the somber scene is Rera, perched on the roof of house, reclining against Shikuru. Is this Rera's version of the world? The artist rarely utilizes screen tone and cross-hatching often found in other B&W doujin, but I think it gives a very unique and heavy feel to the overall presentation. Just imagine a full-colour doujinshi in black and white.

The art is nice but I'm just not interested in the content. The first half has characters from a series I've never even heard of called Blazing Star. Her artwork is very nice! Visit her site.

This artist's style seems familiar but can't quite put my finger on it. Darkstalkers, Street Fighter, El Hazard, Rockman Dash, FFVII, Evangelion, and various other series illustrations are featured within.
