Synopsis

Destiny or delusion? It's a hilarious rollercoaster of laughter and confusion when Taishi, the ultimate otaku, drags his friend Kazuki into the swirling world of ambition, hatred, and love - the world of fan comics! Poor clueless Kazuki must sink or swim when he's dumped straight into the middle of a massive comic convention. Lost amidst hoards of buyers, sellers, and cosplayers, Kazuki is about to be baptized by fire, all in order to lead him toward his true calling: to take over the world through fan comics!

Meanwhile, Kazuki's childhood friend Mizuki isn't about to let him be dragged from his normal life without a fight! But will she be able to stop the addictive draw of the new world that lies before Kazuki? Little by little, Kazuki is slipping down the path towards destiny - and Taishi is shoving him every step of the way!

When you talk about otaku or doujinshi in anime, most people will automatically think of Genshiken, Doujin Work, NHK ni Youkoso!, Lucky ☆ Star, or even Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu. It's a sad fact that the show that effectively spawned a whole genre is often overlooked in favour of the "new and shiny" anime that came after.

That anime is Comic Party.

Originally released for the PC in 1999, the game gained a degree of fame because of the adult content and the fact that it was inspired by the Comiket event held in Japan during the Summer and Winter. The real phenomenon however, came when read more

Comic Party. If you've watched Doujin Work before, then this is pretty much the same premise. Basically, it's about a group of friends/acquaintances and their journey through drawing, printing and selling of their very own doujinshi (parodies of others' works or original comics).

The story is simple and fun to watch. It's basically a slice of life with minimal plot twists. Kazuki is introduced into the doujinshi community and the show depicts his growth. It does really well in that aspect, but don't go in expecting anything too complex or outrageous. It does provide some insight on how events work in Japan though.

Recommendations

It's the same. Young people making doujinshi and trying to sell them...
Like Comic Party, Genshiken deals with the real life world of being a fan. While Comic Party concentrates more on the making of the products, such as Dojinshi, Genshiken concentrates on the people who buy the dojinshi. So if you ever wanted to know what type of people buy Kazuki's books watch Genshiken.
