First book in the series. Not sure if this is connected to the ongoing AU that seems to develop in the series. This is another one of those books that makes me wish I could read Japanese so I could get a better idea or what's going on (or at the very least, read their handwriting so I could type up the dialogue and run it through a translator). One of the shorts also makes me wonder -- do Karl x Fine books exist? 'Cause I'd be interested!

Third book in the series. Seems to be more of the series' AU GF universe where Raven and Liese are buddies with Ban and his gang. The Zoids part sees Rinon out to beat Bit to a pulp yet again, but this time she bites off a bit more than she can chew. Bit, thinking she's calmed down (or at least has been humbled a little) lets down his guard and suffers the consequences.

Fifth book in the series. Series of gags, some of which seem a little AU-ish. It's a little hard to decipher exactly what's going on in a lot of them, but one of my favorites involve Fine not recognizing Ban after a shower has flattened his usual spikes.

Sixth book in the series. More of the AU in which everyone's friends with one another (and seemingly in school together as well). There's also a weird one where Ban's having lunch with Karl, Rudolf, Liese and Raven (the latter two being cat-people) when Fine, Moonbay and Irvine (who are half human and half I-don't-know-what) attack them, only to be scared away by Raven's Deathsaurer hand puppet.

Second book in the series. Seems to have a few episodic based stories/gags. Again, it's a bit hard to figure out what's going on in some of them -- like, what exactly is going on with Ban and Irvine when they find Karl and Rudolf eating together?

Irvine is kidnapped by a gang (which I thought was Stinger's but I'm not sure, it kind of looks like a young Prozen's part of the gang, but that makes no sense timeline-wise). Ban rescues him and nurses him back to health, which in doujinshi, fanfic and movies, leads to sex.

The scanner couldn't pick it up, but the covers have a ridge/ripple texture to them. The two prints of the books also have slightly different page colors and totally different ink colors. The first print uses dark green ink while the second print uses a maroon colored ink.

A short Ban x Irvine gag and a longer one involving Fine and Sieg both wanting a piece of Irvine, literally! Book-wise, the 2nd print of the book has a more matte cover and the paper stock seems a little lighter while the 3rd print of the book has a glossy cover and a heavier feeling stock.

Thomas x Karl, Bit x Ballad stuff. Watch Thomas nearly have a stroke as Fine goes around kissing everyone. Also some nice Fine and Irvine interaction, which sadly isn't seen much in either the anime or doujinshi (at least the ones I have).

An unofficial continuation of the Zoids manga-verse by the original creator! The main stories can be found on his official website (this book contains chapters 1 and 2 and the Irvine backstory), but there are a few exclusives to the printed doujinshi: a map of Zi along with a summary of the what happened where and who Ban and Fine met there. Also character profiles on Ban (officially his name is Bang), Fine, Irvine and Moonbay. According to their profiles, the full names of the latter two are Irvine Cavaliere and Moon-Bay Me Javal.

Collection of works from various circles/artists. If the cover scans look a little funky, it's because the cover is actually a thin translucent sheet with the title and text printed on it and the illustrations are actually on the pages behind the covers. Another way this book stands out a bit is that two of it's stories are manga based rather than anime based.

Back cover tells you which pairings are featured in this book. I don't know about anyone else, but I find chibi-Ban and chibi-Fine on the cover slightly disturbing. They only come up to Irvine's knees!
