Fairy Cube Vol. 1, by Kaori Yuki
Minima! Vol. 1, by Machiko Sakurai (will be posted 6/19)

Origin: Spirits of the Past Special Edition DVD
CLAMP Double Feature: Tsubasa and xxxHOLiC DVD

The contrast between Fairy Cube's cover and what's actually inside made me laugh. A lot.

Methinks she was trying to be like Brian Froud. ^^;

Ah, but Brian Froud doesn't have to deal with the mothers of preteen girls who go "OMG CUTE FAIRY!11one!" and get slasher gore inside. Imagining those situations amuses me...a lot.

But I didn't think Fairy Cube was THAT gory.

Hmm. Maybe I'm just jaded...

No, not really - nothing on the level of Gantz or even Berserk - but it was far, far more gory than the cover or blurb hints at.

*ponders* I'd say this is true of all of Yuki Kaori's color vs. interior art, though.

Yeah, I picked it up in the bookstore, not having read any reviews yet, and was surprised at the amount of blood. The cover really doesn't convey the story very well. I liked the art, though.
