Comic Market 84: Alpha to Yukaina Nakamatachi / 有葉と愉快な仲間たち

Alpha gets in the Mysterious Transfer Student game at C84

When I bought my first Alpha to Yukaina Nakamatachi doujinshi, April 2012's Papakiki! parody Mama ni Naritaino!, I hoped I was getting into a relatively unknown artist with a considerable backlog of parody works.  While I was right about the size backlog, I was way way off regarding the circle's source material--Alpha operates almost exclusively in the realm of its own original stories and character creations.

After spending many years in the school halls of the Let's Become an Expert series, Alpha's more recent attention has been focused on a certain sordid family's affairs, with twin sisters Yui and Sui Takanashi the starlets of the circle's Comiket 82 and 83 efforts, and "Nasty Aunt" Aya Natsuki at Comic1☆7 this past April.  The family business continues, it seems, at C84 this weekend, with a new argentine-haired duo on the cover of Transfer Student of Twins Ema & Eve

Alpha's slate of goods at C84 includes a new omake book, BISCUIT POSiTION, moving the circle from sweet to savory names, as well as an ID card holder, label set, 4-koma book, and a rather beautiful trio of seifuku'd girls on a clear file.  Regrettably, Alpha has yet to reach a distribution deal with Melonbooks or Toranoana, so the convention will be the only opportunity to buy the set.
