Fanlisting? As stated at the The fanlistings.org, a fanlisting is simply an online listing of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are) - they are just a place where you can have your name listed along with other fans of the same subject. TheFanlistings.org is the original (but not official) web directory for fanlistings, dedicated to uniting the fans.
What is this Fanlisting about?
douhou, when translated means brothers; is a fanlisting supporting Inuyasha & Sesshoumaru doujinshi. This covers all genre of their relationship, be it sibling rivalry, brotherly love, friendship, yaoi.. etc.
What is doujinshi?
Dōjinshi (同人誌) also romanized as doujinshi, are fanmade Japanese comics/manga often drawn by amateurs of already existing series. Most doujinshi are parodies or alternative storylines and can sell for hundreds as the circle grows in poularity. Avid fans of doujinshi attend regular conventions, the largest of which is called Comiket (short for "Comic Market") held in the summer and winter in Tokyo.
Where can I buy doujinshi?
Here is a small guide to buying/shopping for Doujinshi taken from my own Doujinshi Collective
Beginners guide to Doujinshi genres:
& Series – Your favourite animanga, movie or video game, you just can't get enough of!
& Relationship/Pairings - Yaoi/shonen-ai (malexmale), Yuri/shoujo-ai (girlxgirl) & Non-Yaoi (Het). If you are uncomfortable with seeing your favourite character in the arms of the same sex or opposite sex than it might be ready for that. Most Doujinshi sellers/Circles give some kind of warning if the material is suggestive to the extent of the above genres.
& Ratings – Gag (G: Humour), Non-hentai (PG: holding hands/kissing), doki doki love (PG-13/R: Romance/Petting/Kissing), & Hentai also known as H-Doujinshi (NC-17+: Graphic/hardcore Sex). If your offended by sex and depending on the type of hentai. Some aren't pretty at all and go past the NC-17 ratings!!
& Circles – The Doujinshi artists'/artwork. Depending on style and quality of comics a circle can be as popular as an official manga-ka artist.
Auction know how:
& Bidding - When you are on Ebay or any auction site, do everyone a favour and read the item, shipping, payment..etc. If you don't, you are most likely going to obtain something you really didn't want.
& Payment - There are a couple ways to pay for your item online. One being Paypal, a popular way of transaction. I recommend that if you are buying online, that this should be the first thing you set up.
