Have a doujinshi about cuties being super cuties, OOPS IT’S SUPER SHOUJO. SORRY TOM. Also, the artist is FEROCIOUSLY on model for the movie, so much so that Melfra conducted a week-long search to see if the artist was on staff for the movie. She isn’t, but MAN, YOU’D BE FOOLED.

Edited and scanned by Melfra, translated and typeset by yours truly.

Enjoy! ONLY ONE DAY LEFT. Tomorrow’s festivities might be… uh… extreme.

The conclusion to Fragile. The fight scenes are badass, and so is Rinoa. In other news, MY NERVES ARE SHOT. I’d take a break, but I’m determined to see 12 days to its logical conclusion! Which is not FAILURE, thanks for the vote of confidence, NANNERS. Even if, like, three people are reading. WHATEVER MAN, I’M DOING IT FOR ALL THREE OF YOU.

If you had to ask me what sort of storytelling Shirow Miwa excelled at, I’d say that’s a trick question because he’s a GOD and is perfect at everything, amen.

Seriously though, beware of intense nostalgia value when reading this doujin, holy god. Right after I read this story, I immediately hopped on the PSN and downloaded FF8 right then and there. Now the temptation to skip just one release to play it for a few hours is sooohooohooo strong. It’s funny because I remember hating it when I first played it as a kid, because I was still on a high from beating FF7 at least once a month and I was bitter that 8 wasn’t a direct sequel. Clearly the concept of “Final” Fantasy was lost on me back then, but it seems lost to the recent devs, too, so I guess I’m in fair company. (OHHH, SICK BURN.)

ANYWAY, this chapter was edited by Tom the Mighty, scanned by Melfra, and translated + typeset by yours truly. Enjoy!

By the way, fair warning: At the beginning of “The F,” there’s a small color gallery featuring the doujinshi covers for the books it compiles. We’ve made an attempt to insert those where they would introduce their respective books, but in certain cases, the page quality left… something to be desired. So while we’d love to put the cover for Fragile in, it just doesn’t meet our standards. But hey, there it is if you want to see it. Maybe somewhere down the road we’ll grab the physical books instead and scan ‘em from there, idk.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I’m too sleepy to articulate any further well-wishes than that, but there you are anyway.

If you’ve read the rest of the Teinyu series, you’ll know what five’s about. One part manga (haahahahahahaha), other part Charagumin ads and other assorted sketches. By-the-by, the opening animation sequence that Araizumi references here is for the Book Walker interview show he and Kanzaka did, what, was it early 2012 or ’13? I can’t remember. Anyway, that was the intro piece.

This book was edited by Tom the Mighty, translated and typeset by yours truly, and scanned by Melfra. Between me and you, guys… I’m terrified for 6. (And 7 just came out! Gotta start putting money away for that one, derp.) Anywho, enjoy!
