Watchmen kawaii!

I stumbled across these adorable and strange Watchmen manga via Mike Sterling’s Progressive Ruin.


While Rorshach is fairly androgynous, it looks like most of them have been bishoujo-ified into teenage girls. (Not sure if Ozymandias counts—he looks a bit bishie.) Is it a gender-bending RPG or cosplay design?  Intended for a fanfic? Standard fannish fare of translating the story into a more Japanese idiom? Something else entirely? Come on Japanese-speaking internet, fill me in!

Whatever the case may be, I think they’re just fabulous. Check out the whole bunch here.
