Here’s a fascinating look at doujinshi, Japan’s self-published, fan-produced works. They’re often manga, but can also be video games or anime.
I’ve been trying to follow doujin gaming for a while, and... it seems like most of the direct parody stuff are short manga works, but the doujin gaming scene seems more like mostly original works; just indie games.
Is this correct? Or is it just how it appears based on what I’ve been exposed to, seeing as I mostly only see what gets released in English?
