Ein's Long-Cake Pico Pixels 02 - 6

Ein's second original doujinshi, Long-Cake Pico Pixels 02, was released for Comiket 79 and improves on the Comiket 78 release, Long-Cake Pico Pixels, with more recent works, full-page illustrations and even more pages.

Long-Cake Pico Pixels 02 is B5-sized and 28-pages when counting the covers. The cover art features a newly illustrated Yui from Angel Beats! with hi-tech wing speakers. Aside from that though, there aren't any other obvious fan arts, as Ein focuses more on original designs with elaborate, colorful sceneries and mecha musume.

This volume has a lot more full page illustrations than Ein's last doujinshi release, although there are still several shared-page illustrations that are more scenery-oriented with small-sized characters. There are also four pages of mecha and weapons designs like gunnery and vehicles. Though I know it's something Ein likes to illustrate, it does seem kind of out of place this time around amidst all the cute girls.

One thing I do have to say about this doujinshi was that it was really quite overpriced at ¥1350. There wasn't anything in production value or extra content to really justify it, which is what I'm used to seeing when a doujinshi is priced like that. As a result, there are still plenty available on Toranoana. But overall, it's a nice collection, and it's equally nice to see Ein in art books again, like in the recent Daigakusei Zukan 2012 Illustrations of Real Campus Girls. I'd recommend Long-Cake Pico Pixels 02 if you're comfortable with the price, otherwise you might be a bit disappointed!
