Doujinshi : Amateur manga

What is doujinshi? Doujinshi is a manga that was made by amateur artists, either by using their original idea or by using materials from other popular anime, manga or games. The artwork result will depend on their credibility and drawing technique, some of them can even match the artwork of professional mangakas.Doujinshi is usually being made because of desire and not to make profit. All costs to produce doujinshi will be endured by doujinshi-ka themselves, and the selling price will depend on the producing cost. Because doujinshi was published in limited edition, the price usually will be higher than manga in market.
