Marisa's Adventure in Wonderland: now shipping worldwide
A few weeks ago, ahm (who is a regular contributor at Welcome Datacomp), posted this incredible video on Youtube, “reviewing” a lovely Touhou doujinshi in the form of a child's pop-up book, COSMIC FORGE's Fushigi no kuni no Marisa.
“Doujinshi + Carrollian references + children's book” is a winning formula, period, especially by our standards at tsurupeta.info. Add to that a healthy serving of tongue-in-cheek intellectual wankery, and you get something that ought to receive everyone's attention.
This prompted us to translate ahm's review for a Japanese-speaking audience, which got us in touch with people from circle COSMIC FORGE expressing pleasure at foreigners enjoying their work. We suggested that they might get wider international exposure by using the services of a doujinshi online store shipping worldwide, such as Manga Pal.
Today, I'm happy to announce that this is a done deal, and that Fushigi no kuni no Marisa is available for purchase on the Manga Pal web store. Apparently, Manga Pal also intends to carry the book at upcoming events in France and Taiwan.
This is a really cute piece of work. Please check it out! It doesn't come with inline English translations like Firstspear's Strike Witches books, but we will be providing a whole translation of the text here shortly (with permission from COSMIC FORGE).
I should also mention that, even though this is like the third post recommending a Manga Pal release on this blog, we don't have any ties with them. We just happen to like some of the products they offer, and we're not aware of other organizations committed to spreading doujinshi beyond Japanese borders.
