Slam Dunk! Doujinshi (scanslated) - Come With the Wind - I... I-- Is that Rukawa and Hanamichi drawn as Rhett and Scarlet from the Gone with the Wind poster? asl;dkfjal;sjk jesus christ sometimes I love Japan so much that I feel like I'm going to BURST with it. The doujinshi itself is kind of random and semi-pointless, but it's by Yamane Ayano and you can tell how talented she is (even if this seems to be one of her older works and the characters occasionally look a little off) and it's got Rukawa as a raccoon molesting Hanamichi, but honestly. That just makes it MORE AWESOME. I think I practically lol'd my way through this entire thing, god, I love Japan. (Rukawa/Hanamichi, not quite SFW.)

Cardcaptor Sakura Doujinshi (scanslated) - Love the Island - There are two versions of this one, one that contains the porn scene and one that does. I snagged the porn one just because I was curious about it, but, honestly, it's just a random scene that isn't part of the story or anything, it's just a separate three page random thing that adds nothing to the story. Grab it if you want, but if you go for the safe version, you're really not missing anything at all. (And it's really the version I recommend, since the h-version was kind of randomly non-con.) That aside, asd;lfkjasl;kjaslkj THIS WAS SO FREAKING CUTE. It's pretty simple and straightforward--Sakura and Tomoyo invite Syaoran to the kids' Christmas party and you can just see Syaoran's feelings for Sakura really blooming and she's obvious feeling the same way for him and it's all about the walking home holding hands and smiling and thanking each other for protecting them and just. as;dfkljasl;kj everything that Syaoran and Sakura should be. I totally got the warm and fuzzies reading this, in exactly the way you should with these two, yet somehow not boring or too saccharine. Just. ♥ (Syaoran/Sakura.)

Soul Eater Doujinshi (scanslated) - Upright - I was curious about this doujinshi because, hey! Soul/Maka doujin! And it looked pretty from the cover! So I had hopes that it would be good. as;dlkjfasl;kj I did not expect to get something that was this wonderful and on for the two of them. It's all about Maka's issues and how she carries so much around with her and hates lies and feels like everything is a lie and has trouble saying her feelings and then there's Soul and they're not perfect, but they're just... somehow they work. The doujinshi was only slightly less polished than the original manga, but beautifully captured the feel and tone of it, the crazy parts and the genuinely touching parts and the characterization for everyone was spot on and just. asl;dkfjaslkj this is how I think Soul/Maka will go. The doujinshi was pretty much perfect for what I wanted from it. *___* (Soul/Maka.)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Doujinshi (scanslated) - Love Love Love - I'm not sure why I picked up a YGO doujin, but, well, I'm weak to Kaiba, shut up. And what's fun about this doujinshi is that, despite that it's older and the art is kinda rough, it does keep the general feel of the series and there are a few pages (especially towards the end) that look really kinda hot. It's a silly little doujin, the group is doing a flower watching, so Kaiba and Yugi/Yami Yugi are backed into a temporary truce and then... it just gets cracky from there. I have to admit, I lolled, though. (Kaiba/Yami Yugi implied.)

Okami Doujinshi (raw) - untitled - ;asldfjkaslkj oh my god there is Okami doujinshi. I mean, I knew there had to be, since there's a lot of fanart and I've seen covers and stuff, but this is the first time I've seen any floating around and I kind of love it ridiculously. The art is really stunning, it has just enough of the spirit of the original to delight me, but still takes on its own style and the characters are just gorgeous for it. Each page is beautiful and it's all about Waka and Amaterasu (whose personality shines through beautifully here) and the Moon Tribe and just. a ;sldkfalksj yesssss. I loved this so much. ♥ (No real warnings/pairings.)

Slayers Doujinshi (raw) - Chaotic Heaven - [Note: You may have to scroll down the page to find the doujinshi I'm recommending, since they're not posted separately. However, I'm recommending all my favorites separately, which is why the link will be the same for several of these. Some covers are NSFW!] As long as I was going through doujinshi posts, I wanted to stop by some of my old favorite Slayers doujinshi and this was where I remembered them being. I'd have liked to be able to have linked them individually or to have zip files for download, but it's not terribly difficult to get the hang of this site. ♥ The scans are pretty small, but this is back from when doujinshi wasn't often scanned as much as it is today and you can still get a good idea of what's going on in the images. I had to start with this one because it's one of the first doujinshi I had to go out and buy myself, because the art was just that gorgeous, the detail is amazing on it, and I love that the artist put her own spin on the characters and their designs, but they're still recognizably themselves. And I love that Xellos is still a smiley bastard and some of the expressions (whether a smirk on Xellos' face or the confusion that Zelgadiss goes through) are amazing. This isn't just one of the best doujinshi in the Slayers fandom, it's one of the best that I've seen in any fandom, it's beautiful enough that I would follow this artist to any manga she wanted to do as well. (Xellos/Zelgadiss.)

Slayers Doujinshi (raw) - Reveal - [Note: You may have to scroll down the page to find the doujinshi I'm recommending, since they're not posted separately. However, I'm recommending all my favorites separately, which is why the link will be the same for several of these. Some covers are NSFW!] This one isn't quite as stunning as the previous one, but it's really pretty (especially for '90s era art!) and it's just as long (I miss the nearly 80-page doujinshi like this one) and I love that, while it's definitely about the pairing, it's also got the rest of the Slayers cast in it. The art is very detailed and is doujin-esque while still maintaining the Slayers-style feel and it was a total treat to see again. (Xellos/Zelgadiss.)

Slayers Doujinshi (raw) - Cureleess - [Note: You may have to scroll down the page to find the doujinshi I'm recommending, since they're not posted separately. However, I'm recommending all my favorites separately, which is why the link will be the same for several of these. Some covers are NSFW!] Do you know what I kind of have an unholy love for? Zelgadiss with elf ears. I know I should probably be a little ashamed of myself for it, but I kind of love it with all my heart anyway. This is another one that I wish had a bigger resolution because the art of this one is really gorgeous and there's some amazing detail in it and it's exactly the kind of story that I love for this pairing. This is the kind of thing that had me really connected to Slayers fandom for a long time. ♥ (Xellos/Zelgadiss.)

Slayers Doujinshi (raw) - Baca Bon! - [Note: You may have to scroll down the page to find the doujinshi I'm recommending, since they're not posted separately. However, I'm recommending all my favorites separately, which is why the link will be the same for several of these. Some covers are NSFW!] And then this one is purely about the makeouts, which is a nice way to follow up the previous doujinshi--which were gorgeous, but a little lacking on the porn. It's not terribly graphic, but between the solid art (that's just enough like the series' art to be a lot of fun) and the solidness of the makeouts, this was really enjoyable. (Xellos/Zelgadiss, not quite SFW.)

Harry Potter Doujinshi (scanslated) - Yawa Ame - I picked this doujinshi up on a whim, just because I was wandering around and happened to be in the mood to read a few tonight. I was surprised at just how much I really fell in love with this one--sure, part of it is because it's Sirius and Remus and I love the anime/manga-style take on them (shut up, all of you), but it's also this really heart-warming, adorable story about Sirius being afraid of lightning/thunder and the way it sort of makes Remus feel better about his own secret. The art is adorable and really pretty on certain pages, it has this really almost quirky sort of charm that I like put together with HP fanworks. This was exactly the kind of thing I want out of HP fandom. ♥ (This is gen, but if you like Sirius/Remus, you should like this.)

Togainu no Chi Doujinshi (scanslated) - Shi ni Itaru Yamai - Apparently, today is my day for an ecclectic selection of doujinshi to read. I'm... not really entirely sure what happened in this story, but it's Shiki/Akira and I've long had a soft spot for them, so I figured I'd pick it up. And it's been a bit of a slow day, so the extra sex scenes were nice and the dreary, depressive mood the author created was interesting, and the art was nicely done and... well, that's about all I expect out of Togainu no Chi doujinshi, so it succeeded for me. :Db (Shiki/Akira, NC-17.)

Vampire Knight Doujinshi (scanslated) - Secret Garden - ;alskdfjaslkj VAMPIRE KNIGHT DOUJINSHI. AND IT IS KANAME/ZERO. YES. Like, I totally ship Zero/Yuuki the most, but I have a very strong fondness for Kaname and Zero as well, not the least of which because Hino is totally encouraging the fans to think dirty thoughts about them. The doujinshika did a really solid job of capturing the feel of Hino's manga style, which I appreciated, it was a little mess, but still really pretty. The real gem is in the storyline, though, because you can tell the author totally has a sense of humor about herself and her plot--she's totally mocking herself for wanting to give Zero cat ears and a tail, which just makes me love her all the more. I totally sporfled my way through this, especially the page with Ichiru. Just. This is totally what I'd do if I could draw doujinshi. ♥ (Kaname/Zero, brief Ichiru/Zero.)

Initial D Doujinshi (scanslated) - Fairy Tale of Love Volume 01 - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable.] No matter how many years it's been since I should have let this series fade out from my list of fandoms, I still keep coming back. Especially when it's Megamouse doujinshi, because her work is so pretty and it's so much of what I wanted from this fandom. I love that it's about 50 pages long and yet it just flew right by, I was easily sucked into the story. I love that it has a sort of laid back pace, as Takumi runs into Kyouichi from the Emperors again and there's tension between him and Ryousuke that Takumi doesn't quite get, the kind that kept just enough of the feel of the original to appeal to me. And the art is really pretty and, even if this ends in a cliffhanger, it was such a satisfying read this afternoon. ♥ (Ryousuke/Takumi.)

Mushishi Doujinshi (raw) - 10000Miles - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable.] I picked this one up for the novelty of it, of course, because... a Mushishi doujinshi?? What, seriously?? Naturally, I had to check it out, just for curiosity's sake! And I'll grant that there's a very unpolished sort of feel to it, it does feel kind of like a webcomic or fancomic from a fanart site. But the artist shows a lot of potential and nearly every panel was filled with details and she captured the feeling of the series really well, there's such a lush background world here. And some pages are really super pretty and just. I'm so glad the scanner shared this with the fandom. ♥ (No real warnings/pairings.)

Okami Doujinshi (raw) - untitled - There are three doujinshi here, I'm going to rec them all together since they're relatively short and they're all posted together. The first one is a really charming little Fuse-hime-centric book that isn't precisely the same style as the game, but manages to keep the spirt of the game and is seriously the most adorable thing. The second is a Rao-centric book that starts off with a couple of great Waka pages, then goes on to her story. I love it because it has the heavy inked lines from the game and it's a story about how Rao met a fox one night and it's just this really cool little thing. The third one is an Issun-centric book and it's got a more traditional style, but still manages to keep the charm of the game. All three of these doujinshi are great on their own, but they're even more fun together, because it feels like a more comprehensive look at the background world and the characters in the game and the art is delightful to look at and they just. Bring back everything I loved about this game until I wanted to burst from it. ♥ (No warnings/pairings.)

Final Fantasy XII Doujinshi (scanslated) - Sky Regrus - I was browsing Baka-Updates for new releases and happened to see this one was posted this morning and it was Balthier and Fran doujinshi, you have no idea how fast I zipped over to snag it. (You can find a download link on this page, I believe, if it's not on the direct listing.) And it's a gorgeous book, it's all about the artist's take on how Balthier and Fran first met and it's sweet without being too fluffy, and the art is recognizable yet also has this really softened feel to it that works so well. I love that it's all about the connection between them, that it's set from Fran's point of view and does a lovely job with her thoughts on being out in the world, yet doesn't neglect Balthier and his delightful attitude towards everything. I love that it skirts the edged of friendship and romance, it could really tip either way (though, I think the attraction is implied, given some of the splash art) and is just a really heart-warming, wonderful story. I adored this so, so much. ♥ (This could be Balthier/Fran, it could be gen. The story itself is pretty gen, though.)

DCU Doujinshi (scanslated) - Kuchibashi ni Cherry - Okay, so. I saw the pairing for this one (Arsenal/Nightwing) and my curiosity overcame it. It's just... the existance of this makes me so confused on how to feel! It's GD Mechano and their work is gorgeous! And it's Roy and Dick! ....but it's doujinshi. I do not expect worlds to collide like that! On the other hand, this is my pet pairing and if anything was going to be found in doujinshi (that I would read, aside from my OTPs, because I would snatch those up in a heartbeat omfg), it would be this one. Naturally, the art is gorgeous and the scanslation is lovely and the story is pretty much PWP but it's one that could slide between the pages of canon well enough and it's just. Roy/Dick porno doujinshi, holy shit. My mind is blown. And I-- I'd be lying if I didn't say I found Dick to be gorgeous in certain panels of this. You know. As he should be. (Roy/Dick, NC-17.)

Fruits Basket Doujinshi (scanslated): Miracle Hotel - Okay, this was just the cutest thing ever! The art is kind of rough, but you can tell who is who and the doujinshika does a fantastic job with Takaya's style of humor--Ayame invites everyone over to play a game of hide and seek and Kyou has to be it, if he doesn't find everrrrryone by the time Yuki gets back, then they all HAVE to stay for a sleepover! This affords for a bunch of little moments of the various Sohma family members hiding and little touches of where they choose to hide. There's a really sweet moment with Kyou and Tohru (my heart!) and then a hilarious ending. This was so much fun. (No real warnings/pairings.)

VOCALOID Doujinshi (raw): Duo - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable. Also, I am recommending both doujinshi on this page together.] I have this thing about VOCALOID's Kaito. I don't know why I like him so much, but I just do. I tend to ship him the most with Miku but I'll also read pretty much ANYONE/Kaito and this doujinshi came along at the right time in my VOCALOID phase.... It's a couple of cute stories, a bunch of ice cream jokes, a bunch of moments where Kaito is pretty much under everyone's thumb, and some occasionally really cute panels. All I ask for from VOCALOID fandom! (Some Gakupoid/Kaito and some Master/Kaito, but it's all entirely G-rated.)

VOCALOID Doujinshi (raw): Jewella - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable.] Omg, more VOCALOID doujinshi! And this one is really super adorable! I love stories where a large chunk of it is just about the various characters hanging out and being total dorks together, which this doujinshi fed nicely into. The pairings are kind of there, but only REALLY noticeable in the second half and I like both Len/Rin and Gakupoid/Luka pretty well after seeing a crapload of fanart for them on Pixiv. It's a cute, fun bit of novelty and the art with the characters is really adorable and pretty in several panels and that's all I need from this. :Db (Some Lin/Ren, some Gakupoid/Luka.)

Okami Doujinshi (raw): Mizu Kagami + Anta Koitsura dou omou - [Note: There are two doujinshi on this page, but I'm going to recommend both of them together.] Man, do I wish Okami had a bigger fandom so that I could get fun treats like this more often! Because I love Okami doujinshi, especially when they're focused on Waka! Both of these books are lovely and have a focus on Waka and his troopers, which is also really nice to see. The art is very pretty in both of them and there's tons of detail to each page and the whole background world is just as lovely and vibrant as in the game. Ahhh, I just sort of want to roll around and glee in this fandom for awhile! (Potential implied pairings, but it could sort of be gen, too? Idk.)

Sailor Moon Doujinshi (scanslated): Earth Wind volume 1 - [Note: You can view the individual pages or just click the download link.] As the notes say, this doujinshi was done by one of Takeuchi's assistants and you can really tell when you look at Usagi's character, because she seems spot on with the manga version of her! Mamoru is a little more off, but you can still tell its him, but, hell, the focus is on Usagi anyway and you're pretty much reading this for the makeouts. Which, honestly, I expect to find almost never for this ship (even hentai for the fandom is usually of either strangers with the Senshi or yuri), much less in such an adorable, lovely sort of way! The basic plot is, not long after they've moved in together, Usagi is trying to study and Mamoru is helping her (and also kind of evil when he teases her, which I love so much) and this eventually leads to them taking a bath together and having sex there. It's a gorgeous book and it's an adorable story, easily my new favorite SM doujinshi ever, and I'm so glad MissDream decided to scanslate this one. *__* (Mamoru/Usagi, a light NC-17.)
