    Re: But what are your thoughts on yaoi?

    Any fan of a doujin circle making BL or GL obviously looks for that stuff online, just like scanlations. Unless you're in Japan obviously, and even then, scans are available for almost anything after events like Comiket. They're not easily obtained internationally, much less licensed for obvious reasons. I feel like doujin fans are more interested in the shipping of characters from popular manga/anime/LN/VG, rather than the pure yuri or yaoi aspect of it. But I would bet most are interested in both. A lot of mangaka who make published series in those genre also make doujinshi. The whole selling point of a doujin is the series it's based on. Anything original is published in large anthologies just like any manga.

    Doujin are widely available online, and in English. Mangaupdates tracks them just like any other manga. Yaoi fanfiction dominates, but there are plenty of yuri and (mostly pornographic) straight pairings too. The fanfiction aspect is key to doujin, that is what dominates Comiket. Fanfic doujin are the only way for shippers to see their favorite pairings in action, not just imagine them. Fanfic is officially tolerated in Japan, but copyright laws obviously make licensing impossible. A lot of the licensed original yaoi titles look kind of dodgy. Lots of bad, 90's style shoujo art.

    Yeah, that's what I said. I meant "obtained" as in purchased and having a physical copy. You can buy them online, but the shipping is expensive and the selection obviously isn't the same.

    People get raws of doujin just as easily, if not easier than manga. Most of it is pornographic after all, which helps the attention it gets.

    I've only ever had it shoved in my face on MU, I've never looked to buy any. Try searching for Naruto without being confronted by a thousand yaoi DJ

    The overwhelming majority of doujin readers don't own them. They're too hard to find and don't have anywhere close to the amount of printings manga would have obviously.

    I wonder what you would think about yaoi that involves Korosensei, Tee?

    In Japan you can buy doujinshi along the manga they originate from in second-hand shops. Its actually pretty awesome. So you'd never want to buy doujinshi? A lot of it is fanfic smut, but for popular series doujinka will diversify and write other things. Like gag, even plot-orientated.

    As someone who buys Beelzebub doujinshi, I can vouch for it being extremely difficult to obtain, but quite easily accessible once scanned. And since doujinshi are made out of love and enjoyment rather than money, doujinshi get sold out very quickly. I wanted to buy this one doujinshi that got sold out in 3 days both online AND at the convention it debuted at. And that's just for small-fry like Beelzebub. The internet closes a huge gap.

    I dunno, Korosensei is too cute for me to pair him with anyone. I know Japan loves his tentacles, and people draw him with pretty much all the characters...but I just can't. If anything I ship him with that woman who died in the first chapter. They gave off HAL/Setsuka vibes.

    That's a can of worms you're opening. Though it must be nice to live in a country which licenses manga more frequently than most. ;_;

    That was more of a joke question but thanks for the serious answer :P glad you see it that way, I don't want to imagine you thinking about an octopus having sexual intercourse kissing with Nagisa or something like that
    HAL? You mean the manga?

    The situation's not as good as you think, tbh. We get quite some manga here but it's not like you can get everything you want. The translations are often off too, at least that's how I feel.
    And my offer stays, even though I doubt Asca would accept it

    It's not for me so I probably wouldn't feel any shame

    You know... all the SnK discussion... the pairings...
    We have a mod among us called Armin.
    Funny thing is that i never paired him with anyone.
