Contained in this download is a single piece of Doujin artwork of the character Dizzy from the Guilty Gear series of Fighting games. The art is very well drawn and Dizzy looks quite excellent.

Really the only complaint about this would be the lack of quantity (only 1 image). However if you're a fan of Dizzy, this still might be a worthwhile purchase.

Wrapping up with it's 5th volume, Tomihero's Sakura-Gumi follows the lives of Aruru, Ruchan and other middle school students in the usual "slice-of-life" format. Volume 5 wraps up the series quite nicely with a picnic this time.

In any case everthing that I've said about the previous volumes applies here as well. The art is excellent as always and the characters all look great. The humor shines per usual, and the situations (namely Sumomo Sensei offering her students alcohol) are hilarious.

In all, Sakura-Gumi is a great series as a whole and I'd definitely recommend picking up all the volumes; they're definitely a real treasure in the library of any doujin fan.

Mahouko Sayurin is a Scrolling Shooter with RPG elements mixed in. The characters I believe are from the Key VN Kanon, however I've never played Kanon or watched the Anime adaptations so I'm not sure.

Anyways the basic gameplay is exactly what you'd expect from a scrolling shooter: you shoot stuff (lol). However it gets a bit more complicated as you'll notice you also gather EXP and money, two obvious RPG elements (with rather self-explanatory purposes). In addition you have an inventory wherein eventually you'll have multiple weapons (set to 1 of 3 buttons) and plenty of other healing items, etc... In addition unlike other shooting games you can (and have to) explore the level rather than just constantly moving forward (puzzles, dialogues, etc...). In addition to all of this the game is quite competently fully voiced (a big plus, especially if your kanji reading skills are low like mine).

Anyways put all this together and you have an awesome game. Given the fact that this is a measly 105 yen, I don't see how anyone could pass this up. Even if you're not familiar with the characters (from Kanon), you will no doubt be able to enjoy this excellent game.

Crimson Heart is a budget priced, 2-D fighter. Having only 4 characters (and 1 boss), gameplay is obviously limited. However given the very cheap price tag, this is more or less acceptable. Gameplay is pretty much what you'd expect from any game of this genre and is fun for what it is. Like I said before, there's only 4 characters so gameplay is very short, however given the multiplayer feature one can still enjoy this a bit longer.

In all, Crimson Heart is a game with a very limited amount of gameplay however given the incredibly low pricetag it's still worth it if you're looking for something to pass the time.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Sakura Saki is a romance/comedy manga occurring at a HighSchool. In the previous volume Saki told Yuuki that she liked him. However this causes some complications when a potential "rival" appears, Sakuranomiya Mai (whom seems to have yuri tendencies)

As with the previous volume, the art is passable though by no means the "strong point" of this manga. However the story and characters shine instead. This chapter is quite entertaining and although riddled with romance manga cliches, quite worth reading.

In all, Sakura Saki Volume 2 is a great addition to anyone's manga collection and a definitely a must buy for anyone who liked the 1st volume.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Fu-Otome Road by Tomihero is a 4-coma manga series about 2 Fujoushi girls ("Fuotome" as they prefer to be called). Anyways in volume 2 Haru and Hina go to the pool, however when it is revealed that she doesn't know how to swim the guy she likes, Hiro, teaches her.

The art in this series is really quite awesome (as with all of Tomihero's works). The characters all look great (especially Hina who's just adorable). The dialogue and situations are rather clever and funny. However the humor is a bit different from the first volume and doesn't focus quite as much on the fact that the girls are Fujoushi.

In all Fu-Otome Road is a worthy purchase for anyone looking to read a funny Doujin. A must buy for anyone who liked the first volume or any other of Tomihero's works.

Volume 4 of Tomihero's Sakura-Gumi is another good entry into the series and does not disappoint. This time Aruru, Ruchan and the others are in Gym class

Per usual, the art is excellent and the characters all look great (same as with the other volumes). The dialogue, situations and characters are just as entertaining as always (I especially love Ruchan's total air-head personality). Really to put it simply everything that was good about the previous volumes is back and more or less the same in this one.

In all, Sakura-Gumi volume 4 is a great Doujin to pick up, especially if you liked the other previous volumes.

A Cute Higschool Love Comedy

Keywords the reviewer selected :

MANAM's Sakura Saki is Doujin which is about a highschool freshman named Sakamoto Yuuki whom just entered highschool (which happens to be a former all girls' school and thus doesn't have many other male students). Other characters include his childhood friend Aoi and the class president Saki.

In any case the art in Sakura Saki is pretty decent, though far from mind blowing. I've certainly seen better but it's passable and doesn't detract from the enjoyment any. The story and whatnot seems to follow the usual cliches in other similar "highschool romance" stuff, though is still enjoyable to read. The character, although still just barely introduced at this point (only the first chapter), come off as pretty likable overall.

In all Sakura Saki is a pretty good Doujin manga that I'd definitely recommend.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

HomuMado by Merumeto no Yakata is a short, but entertaining parody off Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica. In it Homura is torn between her "mission" and staring at Madoka's panties.

The art is HomuMado is pretty decent. All the characters are recognizable. The dialogue is pretty clever and funny and the situation itself is pretty hilarious. The only issue with this is that it's only 4 pages.

Overall HomuMado is a worthy purchase if you're a fan of Madoka.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Volume 3 (and all the other volumes for that matter) of Tomihero's Sakura-Gumi is a slice of life comedy manga about middle school students. In this volume Sumomo Sensei decides to just sleep and leaves the class to the (less than competent) Class President Ruchan.

Anyways everything from the last volumes pretty much applies to this one as well. The art is very good and all the characters are attractively drawn. The situations and dialogue are entertaining and a joy to read. The only problem with this volume is that it seems a bit shorter than the previous 2 (at only 8 pages for the actual comic portion). In the end though the short length doesn't hurt it too much.

Overall volume 3 of Sakura-Gumi is a pretty worthwhile purchase, especially if you liked the rest of the series.
