Part 2 of Oota Minoru's Yuro Fantasy continues the story Yuro, Fan, Reia and the others with more funny 4-coma comics.
This volume introduces some new characters including the Half-Elf Jenny (whom speaks in Kansai-ben), Yuro's "rival" Ruvi and the spirit of Yuro's Sword, Guillotine Kaizer (whom bears an uncanny resemblance to a certain enemy of Gamera...).

In any case everything that was good about volume 1 is back again. The art is downright amazing, the characters are entertaining, the writing is clever, etc.... I honestly can't think of anything bad to say about this Doujin; I only wish it was longer.

Overall I'd recommend this series to anyone who wants to read a funny 4-coma. There are only 2 out so far here on DL site but I believe the author has written others (judging from his site) so hopefully they will be added to DL site eventually.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Tomihero's Sakura-Gumi is a Slice of Life manga about the lives of middle school students Aruru, Ruchan and Yuuta. This first volume introduces the characters and tells a cute little story about Aruru adopting a stray cat.

The art in Sakura-Gumi is very good and looks as good as (or even better than) most regular commercial/serialized manga.
The Characters are all entertaining and fall under the usual slice of life manga cliche character types (Aruru is a Tsundere etc...).

One big bonus as well is that nearly all the kanji are given furigana so this should be quite easy to read even for those still learning the Japanese language

Overall I'd highly recommend Sakura-Gumi. There are 5 volumes in total and seeing how good this one was I definitely plan to eventually pick up the rest.

A Cute Slice of Life Doujin Manga

Keywords the reviewer selected :

KumaRider's "Now Loading...!" is a Slice of Life story about 4 girls (Mizuki, Mai, Kurumi, and Tomo) who enjoy gaming and are in what I assume is a gaming club at school (though this is never directly stated). In the first chapter, Odekake Summer, Mizuki is bored and tries to convince the other girls to go outside and do something (since it's summer).

Anyway the art in "Now Loading...!" is quite good and the character designs are all cute.
Although this is only the first chapter, the characters still all have clear personalities (for example Mizuki is hyper and Mai is somewhat tsundere).
The story and dialogue is something I'd expect from a Slice of Life style manga and is pretty entertaining. For those just learning Japanese, most of the kanji aren't too hard though there may be a few those new to the language might have some trouble with.

Lastly I should mention that in addition to the first chapter, the PDF also include a bonus 2 pages of 4-coma comics. These are quite entertaining.

In any case Now Loading..! is quite good so far and I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes slice of life manga.

A Cute and Entertaining Parody of Fantasy Tropes

Yuro Fantasy 1
Minomushi-ya
$0.97 / 108 JPY | 10pt (10% back)
Original moe fantasy 4-panel comic.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

First in a series of 2 (so far) by Doujin artist Oota Minoru, Yuro Fantasy 1 is a 4-coma Manga about a girl named Yuro who wishes to become a Magic User but is forced to become a Hero because her father and descendants were all heroes as well. Readers will also be introduced to other characters including Yuro's best friend Fan, Fan's older brother Earth and the magic user Reia.

The art is very good and the character designs are all incredibly cute. Moving on, the dialogue is quite funny and entertaining. In addition the level of kanji used is pretty easy so those just learning Japanese shouldn't have too much trouble.

Probably the only problem with this doujin is the length (only 20 pages), though considering its relatively low price and the high overall quality this isn't that big of an issue.

In any case if you are looking for a good Doujin with cute characters and funny dialogue, Yuro Fantasy is definitely worth purchasing.

Syosui Tou Anthology 1

A very interesting Science Fiction series by Takahiro Awatake, revolving around a group of students discovering nanotech "coral" around their town.

Has some slight nudity as a joke in a few scenes, although this is tasteful and not sexual in nature.

I highly recommend downloading the "Shii" translations of this work from Shii's website. He only makes this available for people who can prove they purchased this work from DLSite.

I really think that Blue Forest has outdone themselves this time.

The armor is phenomenally well-done. It's glossy and shiny and the color is incredible.

If you have the "older brother" adult sprites from Blue Forest already, I think they will fit some of the male sprites, but for the women I'm not sure.

The weapons are pretty impressive as well. I can't imagine anyone rating this product with less than 5 stars for this price.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

I didn't know what to expect from this (not knowing much about Rozen Ma*den) but happened to be a DBZ fan so I checked this out. It turned out out to be pretty funny and made for a unique crossover. It has that exact same feeling of reading Dragon B*ll Z but just alot cuter.

If you're already familiar with Dragon B*ll Z then you'll have an idea of where this is going, only with the added twist of comical mischievous making it completely different.

Definitely not flat

Copyright-free. Lively instrumental (Piano, etc.) and techno (Drill'n'/Drum'n'/IDM).

The music on this album is not flat, and by that I mean it is very expressive in the instrumental choices, but it is very scattered music. This set ranges from somber, fast paced piano solos to the techno riffs in others. I like it, but the combination of all these elements in each song is a bit much for me, although I'm just really sensitive to audio. The most amazing song is the Pikachu bonus track (no spoilers here, so just buy it).

As the title says, this model is something I've always thought was impossible to do, but I was proven wrong. Although I don't want to work with Z*ids, this work is the thing i have wanted to do for some time. The combination of Z*ids, Z*id Blox, and Armored C*re parts is truly superb, and the Magnesser wings systems are the highlights of this kit bash. Honestly, it is worth the $4.05, and the amount of material is simply astounding, as to how much this person fit in. I would really like to see more works like this.

The remixes in this work are very well done. again, for a $1.35, it's really well made, using a synthesizer well. I have heard other Touhou arrangements and this one ranks up with the top five (top ten if some others were downloadable) with some interesting rock arranging choices in the music, particularly because of the style not matching the original songs, and yet they seem to make it work. It's worth it for any Touhou fan.
