Doujin Work follows the life of a young girl named Najimi Osana and her exposure into the doujin world. She was first tempted into becoming a doujin artist after seeing how much one of her friends can make at a convention. Najimi loves to draw, though soon learns contrary to what she expected that this new world is anything but easy. As she attends more conventions and meets more people, Najimi eventually manages to find a group of very interesting friends. These friends already have some experience in the field and help her out along the way so that she can someday make a name for herself creating doujinshi.

Doujin Work is a story about what the title says: A show working on a doujin. With subject matter of that magnitude, some would expect nothing but nudity, perversion, and loads of sex. I can SAFELY tell you that there is no nudity or no sex, BUT there is a lot of perversion going on in this anime. And perversion is all you need for a slice of life comedy about a rookie doujin artist.

If you have viewed any anime about manga artists, namely Comic Party, then the characters will most likely not appear as fresh and different. The cast of characters may not read more

If you’re looking for a realistic portrayal of the world of doujin manga then this anime is certainly not the one for you. But if you want a few hours of mindless light-hearted entertainment then Doujin Work might be right up your alley.

The story is simple and fairly formulaic. Najimi goes along with her college friend Tsuyuri to a comic market where she is selling her work. She becomes entranced with how much money can be made by a successful artist and dreams of becoming rich herself and after the market is over decides she will draw her own doujin manga. read more

i recently rented the first volume (episodes 1-4) of an anime called Dojin Work and i wanted to share my 2 cents on it.

The Story:

First scene: We start out on a train with the main character (as seen in the picture above, i don't remember her name, but it's not important anyways lol). there is a misunderstanding and a lesbian joke breaks out (between 2 girls who are obviously underaged). this joke drags on for 5 minutes. this is foreshadowing that you will hear sexual pedophile jokes A LOT in every episode, in fact, most of the jokes are for pedophiles. the read more

This anime is something like 2 hours when you watch all the episodes in sequence so this review will be short.

Doujin Work is good for some nice cheap laughs. It's about a girl who wants to go into the doujin business, because of all the profit that can be made there. *snicker*

Ahem, anyways, it's really funny. The episodes (the anime parts I mean, not that extra crap they tagged on) are about 12 minutes each or something so it's a decent way to get your daily dose of giggles during a break.

The characters are reasonably original, ranging from the naive doujin artist read more

Anime: Comic Party
It's the same. Young people making doujinshi and trying to sell them...

Anime: Genshiken
Also deals with going to Comiket, doujinshi fandom, and eventually self-publishing a doujinshi.

Anime: Animation Seisaku Shinkou Kuromi-chan
Both illustrates how manga/doujin artists do work behind the scenes.

Anime: Rec
Both series are about working hard towards a goal. While REC focuses more on romance, Doujin Work focuses on comedy... but both have hints at each. Also, the main character in both shows look a lot younger than they are meant to be.

Anime: Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to The Animation
Both series have weird characters, betting their life on manga. Though one is a perverted serialized mangaka, while the other is a naive girl that just started into the doujin world.

They are both quirky series about people trying to make it in Japanese subcultures. :)
