"う~ん、本当に何でも似合ってしまって困るよまったく" (Hmm~, everything really looks so good on me; it's such a problem, really), Howl from Ato wa Hana to Nare No to Nare.

This is a nice meaty anthology! The art is a bit different from the cover. It's more of a sketchy style of art inside. I forgot which mangaka the style reminds me of. The expressions etc. are well drawn :) I really liked this one because it gave me something to read! Some doujinshi are just so short...

This is a complilation of Yurafuwa's earlier doujinshi:
  1. いつもココロに赤いリンゴを。(A Red Apple, Always in My Heart)
    This is a neat story about Morgan (yep, based on Castle in the Air). It's not easy being the son of the land's foremost magician! Ben and Lettie's daughter appears, too :) It's nice and long! Yay! The length of a normal yomikiri in a manga magazine :)
  2. 眠ても醒めても (Asleep or Awake)
    1. ひらめき きらめき ときどき ときめき (Insight Sparkle Every Once in a While the Heart Races)
      I love this title because of the rhyme scheme (HiRAMEKI KiRAMEKI TOKIdoKI TOKImeKI). It's really cute and lovely to say! Howl doesn't want to get out of bed and work...just another snapshot into what Howl and Sophie's life together might look like.
    2. 愛情線360 ° C (Love Line 360 ° C)
      Another look into a moment in the lives of Howl and Sophie. Sophie decides that magic isn't necessary to style Howl's hair. She will arrange vain Howl's hair...
    3. 一つの魔法 (終わりのない愛しさを与え) (One Spell (Granting Endless Love))
      Calcifer tells on Sophie. Poor Sophie can't even keep secrets from Howl. It's all Calcifer's fault!
  3. Who said La La...?
    Another yomikiri length story! Yay! Lovely, lazy Howl is sick, but still wants to go to the King's Castle? Hey, isn't something wrong here? Sophie thinks so...especially since Howl can't cast a spell decently and turns Sophie into a ???! Lettie helps put more suspicions into Sophie's head. What's going on here, Howl?!
I think this was money well spent :) What is the difference between a compilation and an anthology anyway? According to MSN Encarta, a compilation is a lot of things gathered together, but an anthology is a lot of things by different authors that is complied. So an anthology is a subset of a compliation, eh? Anyway, I like both :) I like longer stories than shorter stories (though some short stories are really clever), so I really liked this one :)

Oh, I think I forgot to say, but Sophie has red hair in all the stories of this dj.
