Mid-week doujinshi review, 15/4/21

Another doujinshi review, in the same week? You bet! Here’s another gem that I got at Comitia. Okaeri by Hatobue Kurocha and Seta   Okaeri is a collaboration between two artists, whose work comes together to form one book in a way I might have never experienced before. There’s no “writer” […]
