If you are an avid manga reader, doujinshi stories would get your attention as well. And no, doujinshi and manga are different even though the content, art, and material are essentially the same. The major difference is that doujinshi is self-published work. Mind you that Doujin and Doujinshi are not quite the same thing, so if you keep seeing them used in the same way, check out our article that explains the difference between the two.
Anyways. This fan-created works phenomenon has really taken off at the anime market. You must have heard of the Comiket convention. It’s the convention where doujinshi stories are shared. If you love reading manga, don’t miss out on doujinshi. The plotlines can be insane! Many Doujinshi authors are mangaka just like the most famous ones, but they have not achieved enough renown yet, so they choose to publish their works independently.
