Doujin are fanworks, self-published in Japan. For money, but not enough for profit. Why does this happen? The people who make the originals see the value of fans sharing love and interest in their product and it is like advertising but free. Hell even some of the original authors of mangs will do an offshoot, porny or otherwise, of their own work for a mental break. Not through their publisher but on their own.
So - Western fandom is a small subset in Japan. Compared to, say, Bleach, Full Metal Alchemist and home-grown stuff like that. Also, there is no predicting the love of J-fangirls. They have a huge thing for RDJ, for example.
Horatio Hornblower, too. And Richard Sharpe. Not so much Master and Commander, but when I can, I'll pick up all three types. The M and C stuff - I've only managed to find two. TWO.
One is movie based, short and silly. The other is actually book-based, and tells the story of the first book (a little) from the POV of the midshipmen.
And so, these snaps are for alltoseek, who needs fresh fandom stuff like Sherlock needs nicotine.( Read more... )
