GELATIN 2011 Spring marks the eighth volume of this quarterly color comics collection and features many of the same artists as the last couple of issues. Pin-ups and a poster of the cover illustration by Hidari (左) are included, along with a subtle increase in price for the second time in a year; now ¥1714 an issue pre-tax instead of ¥1600. It's now almost priced like an art book per issue.

It's not even November yet and the first illustration anthology for the Year of the Rabbit has already been released. Bishoujo Illustrations New Year Collection 2011 brings together 50 artists to illustrate New Year's postcards, incorporating the rabbit in a variety of beautiful and adorable ways.
