A Kancolle doujin release! My typesetter Poitriot, had a blast doing this one as Kitakami and Ooi’s relationship in this one was just perfect. Especially the smile in a later page, is to die for. We may do another Kancolle doujin in the future, a Shoukaku doujin most likely! So enjoy this work!
Pg.07 – Two references here. First is of course making reference to Otonashi Kotori from the original Im@s, since Kotori can also have a double-meaning as “little bird”. In reference to the character “Woodstock” from the Peanuts comic. The second reference is Bane x Take is a pairing of Akabane Kenji (Seiyuu for the 2011 Idolm@ster Producer) and Takeuchi Shunsuke (Seiyuu for the Idolm@ster CG Producer). Thus called TakeBane or in this case BaneTake.
– In the same line above, the phrase, ことりのおやつにしちゃいますよ. “Kotori no oyatsu ni shichaimasu yo”. It’s in reference Kotori Minami from Love Live! It’s Uchida Aya’s tagline during live concerts, first used in their 4th live concert, “μ’s →NEXT LoveLive! 2014 ~ENDLESS PARADE~”. The original line being, “”Kotori no oyatsu ni shicchau yo!” Can be found below:
Pg.09 – Snoopy is from the world-famous, Peanuts, comic strip series.
Pg.12 – A line from Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. From IMDB: Kurotowa : [the god warrior’s mid section partially disintegrates] It’s rotting… it’s too soon…
Pg.13 – Fumika’s line in the last panel, “In this life we live, there are always some bitter pills to be swallowed”. Is a quote by Shermy to Charlie Brown from a strip released on May 26, 1960. The Japanese TL is 「この人生には飲まなきゃならない苦い薬もあるもんさ」. Also note that Fumika replaces くすり (medicine/pills) with もの (things) to further complicate matters. Picture for reference below:
Pg.17 – “Exist” by angela is the first opening song from the TV anime, “Soukyuu no Fafner: Dead Aggressor – Exodus”.
– “Soukyuu” by angela is the opening song to the movie, “Soukyuu no Fafner: Dead Aggressor – Heaven and Earth”. Shibuya Rin did a cover of said song for the THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA MASTER Cool jewelries! 001 album. Which is the reason the author believes, Kisaragi Chihaya, Shibuya Rin, and Shizuka Mogami, would make the best “angela” of their respective series. Information found below:
Our comments: An honor as always to work on doujinshi of our favorite series. I’ve been a fan of Nanoha for quite a while, since I think A’s was airing. But never had a chance to actually delve into the series due to the technological limits I had at the time and my lack of anime knowledge.
Once I actually got into the series. Oh man, was Nanoha a blast. I had plenty of experience with other magical girl series. But Nanoha was special, like it was real special to me. Devices like Raising Heart and Bardiche plus the TSAB, Nanoha’s family, and even the whole background as to why Nanoha, a simple sister girl character from the Triangle Heart series, became a magical girl. Was truly an awe inspiring moment for me. It has the perfect blend of beautiful music by Mizuki Nana, magical girl and fighting game/sci-fi tropes, and heart to it that it is to this day, my top of top favorite anime franchises.
“Sympathy For the Devil” – The title and discussion is indeed talking about “Sympathy For the Devil”, the song and 1968 film, by The Rolling Stones. In addition, reference is made to the Guns N’ Roses version as well.
Pg.24 – Reference to the first ED song of the original TV series. As seen here. “Little Wish” by Tamura Yukari. Though note the line is a bit different from the original lyrics.
Pg.35-36 – That is indeed a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. Further explanation by author in the afterword.
Pg.47 – Reference to Episode 9 of StrikerS when Signum punches Teana. Seen here.
– Okukinu Onsen Hotel is a collection of four inns in Tochigi Prefecture. This particular one is the Kaniya Inn.
– The Mercedes Navigation System never did have an official Raising Heart voice feature. But the author believed it would make sense considering the audio similarities.
Pg.48 – Yes, the 1994 film, “Interview with the Vampire” was the reference the author was making.
I am loving both NakaYoshikawa and NozoMizore doujin. They have a chemistry that is even more well-matched than the other more prominent girls in the series! Glad fans in Japan have much love for these pairings!
I also love the idea of a Christmas date. It’s a very heartwarming idea. Though Tokyo is terribly crowded during the holidays, so I understand the pains and troubles of such an outing.
We are proud to present a Girls und Panzer by Umekiti! I love doing these Anchovy and Pepperoni doujin. They are quite entertaining! And they seem to get more racy as time passes!
Thanks to WSDHANS (We Still Don’t Have A Name Scans) for helping us with this! Much appreciated and hope we can work again in the future!
One more thing, hope everyone is enjoying the release of Girls und Panzer Das Finale! I was glad to see it in theaters and luckily bought this very doujin in Melonbooks since I just saw the movie. The movie was absolutely stunning from start to finish. I think the budget is even better than the movie was, and the movie was unbelievably extraordinary. I hope Das Finale continues for many years so we can enjoy Girls und Panzer for many years to come!
I love You. You is best girl. I can’t stop making puns about You.
Anyways, hope you enjoy this work! I wanted to see more of these two in Season 2, but it was still an enjoyable sequel nonetheless. So working on a few doujin about them is certainly a delight for me. Enjoy!
