29+ Recommended Doujinshi You Should Start Reading

Recommended Doujinshi

A doujinshi is commonly used in Japan for self-published or fan-made comics. These comics are created by fans, often based on a popular manga, anime, or video game series.

Imagine you like a TV show or video game and want to create a story or comic about it.

That’s what a doujinshi is—like a homemade comic made by fans. They draw pictures and make up their stories using the characters and settings from their favourite shows, games, or movies.

It’s important to note that while most doujinshi are harmless and created by fans for fun and creative expression, some may contain more mature content.
