Sunshine Creation 58: Digital Lover / Yuka Nakajima / D.L. Action 74

D.L. Action 74 released into the wilds...of Finland, if Asuna's collar is to be believed. 

It seems Digital Lover helmsman Yuka Nakajima has a crisis on his hands, with his attention divided between his vanguard muse Kuroneko and that past-cour Cleopatra, Asuna Yuuki of Sword Art Online.  While we anticipate OreImo's upcoming second season and wonder if the current second season of Haganai might translate to a return to Sena Kashiwazaki's boudoir (or perhaps Kobato Hasegawa's?), Nakajima is not yet ready to relegate Asuna to the VRMMORPG badlands, with this weekend's release of D.L. Action 74 at Sankuri 58.

Sunshine Creation 58: Clesta / Cle Masahiro / CL-orz 27

More podiatric punishment in store for Clesta fans?

After making a preview appearance at last month's Comic Treasure 21, Cle Masahiro's take on Magi's Morgiana gets the full CL-orz 27 treatment with this book, released today at Sunshine Creation 58.

Sunshine Creation 58: Popochichi / ぽぽちち / Yahiro Pochi

Even People with Adolescent Delusions of Grandeur Want To Experience 3000 rpm directly applied!

It looks like otakudom's favorite delusion-diseased debutante Rikka Takanashi has fended off the challenges of Shinka Nibutani in Popochichi's latest Chuu-2 parody book, released this weekend at Sunshine Creation 58.  This marks the third consecutive Chuu-2 parody by the circle.

Sunshine Creation 58: Ties / Takei Ooki

Golden Darkness Extinguishes Ooki's Fire Sisters Fixation?

After releasing nothing but Bakemonogatari parody books with Karen and Tsukihi Araragi at center stage in 2012, it looks like TIES is preparing a new girl to take the spotlight.  Konjiki no Yami / Golden Darkness from the irrepressibly saucy-but-heretofore-uncensored To Love-Ru is on the cover of what Ooki describes as a preview of coming attractions in preparation for late April's Comic 1★7, as well as a microfiber cloth featuring the bibliophile in her natural state.  This won't be the first time Ooki's Fire Sister Fixation has been breached, with two Kobato Hasegawa-centric Haganai books and a Madoka Magica book in the middle of the circle's seven Bakemonogatari parody releases--will the circle finally move on to new ground?

Abgrund's Sibling Sensation Tops Charts

February Most Kind to (Former) Otokonoko Ace

Trap fans mourned the loss of the talents Yusa Saikawa brought to the genre, brought on primarily by threats and hate mail from abroad, but the artist's transition to heterosexual content has not translated to failure by any means.  Saikawa debuted not one but two new doujinshi at COMITIA103 last weekend, both continuing the salacious sibling story started back in November 2012 at COMITIA102 and continued at Comiket 83.  In addition to the previously revealed Imouto Complete, shown at right, the circle also sold Oyacodon, named after the ubiquitous "parent-and-child" Japanese chicken-and-egg rice dish:

The books have both been very successful, with Oyacodon taking the number 1 slot and Imouto Complete the number 2 slot on Melonbooks' doujinshi sales banzuke for the week of 1/31-2/6.  The re-release of the book that started this original series, Onii-chan Controller from COMITIA102, also made the banzuke at the number 7 slot. 

No indication yet from Saikawa's site regarding continuation of this story--the circle's next convention appearance will be at COMIC1☆7 on April 28
