I’m not sure whether to classify this as doujinshi or an art book. I’ve been considering it “official doujinshi” as it’s done by Kyoko Tsuchiya. A lot of the images are repeats of those in the manga and art books, although there are some that are new. There are also black and white sketch versions of pictures shown elsewhere in color. Like in Soul Driver she has mixed in some of her non-Weiβ characters, like from ‘Black Matrix,’ etc.


This will have to be posted in a few entries, as it’s a very long book. They will be Linked.

*Blinks* Eeh? You haven’t friended this journal…how the heck did you notice I updated so quickly?! I think you must secretly be Schuldig!! XD

Yep, the chibis are totally official; they are on a lot of the official merchandise too.

I consider this official too, I just really wasn’t sure how to label it. ‘Official doujinshi’ sounds like a bit of a contradiction since doujinshi by definition is supposed to be fan-made. But I know that there are several other series where the original authors have made doujinshi so I’m not sure how it works but I guess it must be a category.

Probably 95% of this book is repetitive images….but I really like the handful of ones that I don’t think appear elsewhere. I especially like the sketch of Yohji with his hands bound, and the slashy Manx/Birman pictures, heh.

I sort of lucked out finding my copy of this one. I got it from a dealer at a con, and the price was drastically lower than I’d seen it go for online. I’d only seen it in auctions though, not stores, so I have no clue if anyone ever actually pays the higher auction costs on it. I ought to check out this jpqueen. I keep hearing people reference it all of the time…but hardly any of my doujinshi has come from online, so I’m not so familiar with the places that sell it. Now that I’m archiving what I have I’m interested in paying more attention to that sort of thing….

OMG. I am DUMB. I wasn't getting email notifications that anyone had friended me. I totally didn't realize you had. Ahahaha. *headdesk*

Anyway, it's pretty hard to find much Weiss doujinshi anywhere. I got most of mine from the Mandarake, and they hardly have any more these days either ;___;

Thanks for the link ^___^

BTW, the jpqueen link totally answered my quetion for how to label this. They called it a 'doujinshi art book' so I've edited the entry. It's also going to be helpful for me when I scan some others in the future because I have a few that are listed there, and that will make it easier for me to decipher the circles that published them. Thanks again.

No, I'm afraid I don't! But I'll definitely let you know if I ever come across it.

Oh! Pretty pictures! It's nice to know, having seen these all over the net, that these are official images. I can never tell with all the incredible artists that are out there. And chibi's too! Okay, I admit, I'm not a chibi fan, but some of Weiss are irresistable. Thanks for sharing!

I'm not usually too into chibis either. These ones appeal to me though. I think it's because they look more devious than your average chibi, haha. They're pretty expressive for such simplistic drawings.

I'm glad you enjoyed looking at it. ^__^

Until you mentioned it, I hadn't noticed the devious nature of the little darlings, but you're right, and I'm sure that's part of why I like these and not many others.

Oh, yes, I'm enjoying, but you have so much, it's mind-boggling! I'm jealous!
