Doujin Work 01

Short Summary:
The story is about a girl named Najimi Osana who learns more and more about the doujin world. She is convinced that she wants to be a doujin artist due to seeing what her friend could make at a convention. She loves to draw but finds that it is more difficult to comprehend after all. After making friends with some interesting people, they teach her the ins and outs of the field, and maybe she will eventually make a name for making doujinshi.

I go into another new anime of the season and this time its based on yet another 4-Koma. The premise is what interests me, the story revolving around a dōjin artist. The first episode’s only about 15 minutes and there is so little content in the episode, although I guess it sets up the concept of the anime quite well. There were some funny moments that made me let out a chuckle or two… esspecially that little misunderstanding:

“You seem tired, were you doing something dirty last night? ;D”
“Yes, in fact, I was.”
“EH?! o_O I didn’t know you had a partner…”
“No, I was doing it by myself, if you’d like – you could help me out next time. “
“I like you as a friend, but I don’t swing that way… >_>;”

Combine that with some homages of some common stuff you’d find in dōjin (like rape, for instance – even though I’m not every fond of that kind of stuff – it brought some laughs out of me) and you have one heck of potential! Great way to spend 15 minutes if you’re bored. The animation… good, not horrible, so I won’t have to spend those 15 minutes cooling my eyes down from the buring horrible-ness. Not much else to say…

I smile at the thought of numerous dōjinshi of a dōjinshi anime. That’d be just grand. lol ^^;

  1. Are the subs for the first episode out yet? I haven’t found them, at least on Animesuki.

    15 minutes seems like kind of a shame but at least it will make a good bite size anime. It sounds funny enough. ^^

    And doujin of a doujin anime? XD I like that. And of course they can create a spinoff sequel of the anime from one of the doujin…so it’d be like Doujin Anime Doujin Work…Work? XD

  2. I like the fact that the episodes are only 15 minutes, it reinforces the impression that the series is based off a 4koma.

  3. Still waiting to get my hands on this series looks like it’s gonna be a great light hearted comedy piece.

  4. @CCYoshi: As Shirukii said, the episode being 15 minutes is perfect for a 4-koma series. (: IMO, 4-koma series are a good way to pass the time, and it being a bite-sized anime is perfect for that.

    @TokiDoki: Well, I hope you’ll get it soon. lol
