NEKO WORKs to Release Kan Colle Parody

Catgirl sisters yield to battleship sisters

For months and months, I've been looking for an excuse to post something new and exciting from the wonderfully talented Sayori of doujinshi circle NEKO WORKs, but other than the artist's work on eroge, the circle has for years been entirely focused on besmirching the chastity of their darling original character mascot catgirls, Chocola and Vanilla.  After a sudden change of avatars on Twitter to none other than alpha kanmusu Shimakaze, circle leader Sayori revealed the circle's first full-length parody work since Comiket 79's Touhou doujin Eastern Garden 03, with Kantai Collection's Kongou and Haruna at the fore.  The book was previewed at Comiket 85 in December, but not ready for sale until now.  The 28-page B5-sized effort is available for preorder from Toranoana now (home of these images), with a release date of March 21.

COMIC1☆8: ReDrop

Baby the Spotlight Shines Bright

ReDrop, as wholly devoted to the cooing doves of 765 Productions as any doujin-ka out there, was not able to resist the onslaught of Kantai Collection at Raigeki-sen Yoi! 6 in mid-January, producing the circle's first non-iM@S parody in more than a year.  With the January release of The iDOLM@STER Movie: Kagayaki no Mukougawa e!, however, doujin-ka obsessed with the fates and fortunes of the idols-in-training were provided new ammunition in the war against the kanmusu.  The circle will be returning to form at late April's COMIC1☆8 with a new erotic parody book featuring frequent muse Haruka Amami on the cover, slipping her way out of the outfit featured in the film.
