Quote from 狂気
There's an option "What are doujins?", but no explanation? I bring this up because most western people don't know what they are.

Doujinshi are self published works. Most are manga and novels, and they can be made by both amateurs and professionals. Usually when professionals make doujinshi, it's simply because they want to publish it themselves.

Many think for some reason that erotic manga is all doujinshi. It can be self published, but there's a lot that aren't.

Not that anyone actually reads this...

That's what I was gonna say laugh

Yeah, I read doujins. Mostly adult rated, but I've read a few clean ones as well.

Otherwise no.

So do you read doujinshi? (Keep it PG-13, please)

How many PG-13 doujinshi are there?

I meant the discussion. Mentioning that you read hentai doujinshi is okay, but I don't want explicit details and how horny each one was

I don't read them for fun or look them up. I had read a few some time ago. I put no because it's probably asking do you read often or look for them. I don't.

There sholud have been more options. Like:
Yes, but not too often. or
I read some, but I am not going to read more of them.

Something between Yes and No.

Because the majority of them are hentai and yaoi.
Same here. .___.

I only follow djs from one or two series, but even those I rarely read. I don't go out of my way to read djs, so generally I'd say no.

The first one I've read was The Song of Memory... but I still think of it as only a oneshot. Other than that, I think I've read three other djs... mostly because Naruto dj - Ninja Ballet Academy Exams was just so absurd that I had to read it.

So, over all my answer is no, but I have read (past tense) a few.

Only the absurdly good ones, aka Hentai with a good plot... is like a seinen... with lots of sex O.O

Evangelion Re-take, and that unholy one named Negimaru, just to name a few

Generally no.

I've read the odd few here and there, but I don't often bother.


If you've ever thought or said "Nice Guys finish last" and really meant it, then you should probably read this LJ post by DivaLion. It's incredibly insightful whether you're male or female.

i used to read non-hentai maria sama and then later Touhou doujinshis all the time
i dont care much for simple lust
so i dont read hentai...anymore
[if im 100% honest im sure doujinshi helped me into manga...when i started using internet i of cours visited pornsites like everyone else and i by accident found drawn porn on some that made me go search ALTAVISTA [so old am i] for goodlooking females from games i liked Morrigan,Chun Li , Cammy ASO and found out that in the wonderful country of japan they draw short story-things called Doujinshis with them having sex...and after looking up doujinshis i found lots of weird characters that came from japanese comics so i looked some of them up and started reading kenshis shortly after that
ive been hooked since then]
im old

Ima say no.
