1-bit is a kojin circle. The artist/author's name is Kenchi-san. I've seen this circle's name before in correlation with FF7, FF8, Evangelion
and possibly even Houshin Engi dj. From what I can tell, they seemed to be gag, but I wouldn't rule out shounen-ai. The information
section of some of the books show doujin from a series I can't identify, which seem to be yaoi. Anyway,
1-bit does a cute Inuyasha dj; very, very silly. I know that doesn't appeal to everyone, but I like how she
does it. Sesshoumaru is very obviously Kenchi-san's favourite character, which works fine for me because Rin shows up, and Rin is
quite dear to my heart. I am quite set on getting anything Inuyasha she decides to create in the

|Comments : A really cutesy book. Lots of Rin as she runs around stirring
up trouble for Jaken, Inu Yasha and Sesshoumaru. ^^; Most of the stories are short, but all are funny. There's also some
gag illustrations. The picture of Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha clothes-swapping is particularly good, but there's two whole pages
of "alternative" things Sesshoumaru could sling over his shoulder. Very scary. Overall, there's just so much Sesshoumaru
and he's so good looking... I like it.

|Comments : This has several short gag stories, but the central story is
deliciously funny too. Jaken is swinging an old sword around and he accidentally cuts off most of Sesshoumaru's beautiful
hair. ^0^; Oh no! Well, he gets it back. The first and last comics are two takes on Rin shocking
Sesshoumaru. In the first she says "I hate you!" Jaken expects Sesshou to do something, and when he doesn't, Jaken decides
to take the chance to voice his own negative feelings. He doesn't last a second. ^_^; In the second, she says "I love you!"
^__^ And once again, Jaken decides to copycat. And once again, he gets the crap kicked out of him. That poor little guy just can't win.
Also, there's a illust of Kouga-kun... :9

|Comments : Co-authored with Tohru Okashina from Pure Heart Club,
famous for yaoi and cutesy SephirothxCloud doujinshi. Despite the fact that Okashina-san is a pro, I prefer Kenchi-san's art.
This book is so cool! ^_^ Both Okashina and Kenchi do stories where Sesshou is a chibi. In
Okashina-san's, Sesshoumaru is struck by lightning, becomes a chibi, and then found by Inu & Co. Kagome insists on
keeping him (she seems to think he's Sesshoumaru's son), but Sesshou manages to get away during the night, carrying his (now much bigger than him) Tenseiga. The long
sword attracts more lightning and Sesshou is cured. Kenchi drew a hilarious story where Sesshoumaru accidentally gets
infected with the bane of all dogs... fleas. He tries several methods to get rid of them, but the way he eventually does is just... evil. ^_^
One complaint... Okashina-san draws Kagome like a muppet. It's quite disappointing
considering how detailed her Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha are.
