Comic Market 84: Hyoco Road / ひょこ道 / Hyocorou

Fallout from an all-nighter with Kirino when the Black Cat comes calling?

Hyoco Road knows when it has a good thing going, as evidenced by the circle's recently revealed Comic Market 84 release.  Other than a Mawaru Penguindrum parody from December 2011's Comiket 81, the circle has been all OreImo all the time dating back to Comic1☆4 more than three years ago.  So shall it be at this summer's Comiket 84, with the second installation of Zettai Kirino Ryouiki, a continuation of their last book from the last Big Sight convention, again with Kirino Kousaka gracing the cover.  It's always a pleasure to see what Hyocorou's intensely edgy art style, even though it can produce reactions such as my wife's "What's wrong with her hip?"

Updated 11:41 a.m. 8/9/13:  It appears that Hyocorou is a fan of hack-'n'-slash action, as there'll be some sort of omake for fans at Comic Market 84 featuring the Sorceress from George Kamitani's side-scrolling brawler Dragon's Crown available for convention-goers, as well as what looks to be a limited-edition bookmark depicting a sukumizu-clad Kirino for book buyers.
