Futaket 14 Circle Rundown

This is just a quick blog to go over the participating circle list for Futaket 14 in June.

To start, Melonbooks has attended Futaket for a long time now as a professional distributor/circle so I’m expecting another exhibition of Ban!’s Dva figure, a new prototype of Ban!’s Hermaphroditos or “Wedding Girl“, and probably a new tapestry or two.

In general, after looking at the list a lot of stable names and circles are shown, and the usual Futaket participants (for example, AskRay, Behind Moon, C.R’s NEST, アルセノテリス, KEBEROコーポレーション, 眞嶋堂, 泥沼兄弟) are all in attendance. Looking normal so far. Notable circles attending:

  • REMORA WORKS | D12b
    infrequently attends Futaket, good to have them back
  • ろぜったすとーん | D10a
    with recent success in commercial work, was surprised to see this circle in attendance again
  • ミマサカエレクチオン | H01b
    also attended Comic Market 93, but only had copybooks
  • A-mania9’s | J12a
    hasn’t taken his normal hiatus yet
  • INSERT | J11b
    has not attended Futaket in a very long time, since aliasing as -unlimited at Futaket 8
  • Marioalmanac | A10b
  • 2カラット | B09b

Missing so far…

  • TANA is completely absorbed by retail work at this point and is unlikely to return to futanari-based content
  • ちもさく。 was at Futaket 12, illustrated the fantastic せばらみっ! and hasn’t returned since
  • こがねむし was at Futaket 12 and 13, but has been inactive since the start of the year
  • 茜しゅうへい is currently focused on a futanari web series
  • ICE seems to be transitioning illustrations due to work with Angel Club, and only illustrates futanari doujinshi at Comic Market now
  • みさくらなんこつ is completely absorbed by retail work at this point and is unlikely to make a book for a smaller event like Futaket
  • フタナ屋 doesn’t seem to have much free time lately as a salaryman
  • まるみや / OZONE please bless us with your grace once again
  • ドリル汁 dissapeared in 2016 and has yet to return to illustration… hopefully he is OK
  • ぶんど was in attendance at Comic Market 91 but had severe health problems, but is illustrating again, would be nice to see him at an event again
  • 魔北葵 not listed, but is active as of Comic Market 93… anticipate attendance with some help (see below)
  • RaTe was in attendance at Futaket 13.5 and Comic Market 93, not sure why the circle is missing this time around
  • 北御牧慶 disappears for times, similar to The Amanoja9

Going through the circle list a second time, transsexual oriented circles are mostly allocated to block J while the trap/TSF circles are mostly allocated in block I. If you are attending, that is something to note.

Keep in mind that at most doujinshi events there are usually circles that will lend space to a friend of theirs. As a result, social media (especially #hutaket on Twitter) is going to be the best place to keep up-to-date with attending illustrators.
