Weekend Doujinshi Review, 15/3/30 1

Finally, I’m back to introducing you to doujinshi I enjoyed. Life has been busy, so it’s been two months again… Amefurashi by Torimura (circle: Daiouika) WARNING: This book is about sexual abuse of a child. If you’re squeamish about these things (and I don’t blame you if you are), please stop reading. […]
