Or perhaps, you don't even know what this mysterious Japanese word mean?
Here are some key words that might give you some directions:
Indie, amateur, artist alley, Homestuck,TOUHOU, Higurashi, Katawa Shoujo etc
Doujin, or indie art creation, is an extremely essential part for the Eastern Asian anime world, to the point many major Eastern Asian cons like Comiket, Reitaisai, FF, CTW etc are only composed of only doujinshi selling and cosplay. It is also common to hear people spending their fortune just for doujinshs...for god sake why?
That's why we are here, to explore the fun of doujin art with you.
If you are new to this whole thing, you should come to have a peek. If you consider yourself already pro of this, even MORE AWESOME!!!
...Okay, maybe not to THIS degree
In sum, my plan of this panel is that with your participation, various topics will be covered and discussed, ranging from understanding the myth or misconception associated with the genre, enjoying the great works created by fabulous doujin artists, exploring what creative form doujin art can take, and, as member of doujin group myself, explore the fun of doujin not just from consumer, but creator perspective just as well!
Also allow me to emphasize that even when I might be the one who host this panel, YOU, my friends, are the true center of this panel that should be fun and interactive, by that, we mean sharing your own thoughts or even sharing your own LOOT! Your effort to make this panel awesome will earn you a free prize from us as well :3
So come join the party, share your love or interest about doujin art, and who knows, maybe through this experience, you might become the next Zun, Nasu or CLAMP yourself!
