The three girls stood together in the center of the darkened hall, their robes blowing about them in the rising wind. The time had come for them, as avatars of the Three Goddesses, to face the demonic storm which threatened Tokyo - and, if not halted, the entire earth. "Ready," said Deirdre. As was appropriate to the avatar of Kali, dark goddess of birth and murder, she was garbed in thin black silks, with a belt of skulls around her waist. Her long hair spun in wild patterns, framing her pale face in a veil of dark crimson. One upraised hand held a set of ofuda charms, each one a spell waiting to be cast. "Concentrate," warned Leonie. Her rainbow robes swirled in a mass of whirling colors, confusing the eyes of any watcher. Half-formed creatures of mist lurked around her feet and rose above her head. "Under the guidance of Maya, Goddess of Illusion, let the enemy be confounded!" "Wai wai!" cheered Rebecca, bouncing up and down. Her sparkly pink and green robes glowed in the torchlight. "Go gettem! Yatta!" Dragonflies and butterflies wheeled around her in dizzying pinwheels, and flowers sprang around her feet as she drew on the power of Eos, the Goddess of the Dawn. The darkness pooled and puddled in the corners of the hall, and a figure rose to take shape, mantled in furs and velvets blacker than any of Deirdre's shadows. A great panther rubbed against his legs, baring teeth in a vicious hiss. The man's predatory eyes fixed on the three teenagers, and he smiled, a tiny movement of sensuous lips. "At last," he whispered. "I, Barucco, shall be reborn upon this earth . . ."

Hearts Swords Flowers seems to be more of a primer for running an anime-style game, and a specific style of anime at that, than a general gaming product. "Shoujo" is a genre of manga aimed at young girls, with "a strong focus on characte [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
