Weekend Doujinshi Review, 15/08/09

After a brief detour for my San Diego Comic-Con report and making my own doujinshi for Comitia 113, I’m finally back to reviewing doujinshi. As usual, I am concentrating on purely original creations, the equivalent of self-published minicomics in the west. 1. 追憶の森で (In the Forest of Reminiscence) by Kamei […]

Another doujinshi review, in the same week? You bet! Here’s another gem that I got at Comitia. Okaeri by Hatobue Kurocha and Seta   Okaeri is a collaboration between two artists, whose work comes together to form one book in a way I might have never experienced before. There’s no “writer” […]

Another weekend, another self-published manga review. Make sure to check the doujinshi tag for previous installments! The doujinshi in this week’s post are not from Comitia, but actually from a store! I stopped by Comic Zin in Akihabara with a friend visiting from Canada this week, and of course I couldn’t […]
