Welcome to The Doujinshi Club, a livejournal community for aspiring mangaka and doujinshika. Doujinshi reviews, recs, and so forth are welcome, but that is not the primary focus of this community. Rather, this is a community for fanartists and fanfiction writers to share their stories, ideas, artwork, and related creations. I think we can all accomplish a lot by encouraging and helping each other! I love doujinshi, but.. I also have very little knowledge of Japanese. I think it would be great if there were more doujinshi written in English, for those of us who enjoy manga and doujinshi -- and would like to actually understand it. x_x;
It's cool if your an artist, but your not particularly great at writing.. and likewise, if you enjoy writing, but you feel you're not particularly good at drawing. That's a large part of what this community is about. :) Collaborating stories, ideas, and artwork, getting constructive feedback from other members, and of course, sharing the results! ^~
I encourage you to join if this sounds interesting to you. I know this has potential to be a really wonderful and fun community.. it's just a matter of what people are willing to put into it. :) Feel free to contact me at michiru [at] michirukaiou.com with any questions or comments you may have. I will reply to you as soon as possible.
