Doujinshi facts for kids
A Doujinshi (同人誌code: ja is deprecated ) is a Japanese work that a person creates alone or with people who also share their interests. A group of people who work together to create doujinshi are called a circle (サークルcode: ja is deprecated , sākuru). Some circles have only one artist working by themselves: they are sometimes called kojin circles (個人サークルcode: ja is deprecated , personal circles). These works can be books, manga, art, or other things. Doujinshi are often created by amateurs, but, some professional artists also make doujinshi. The word "doujinshi" comes from doujin (同人code: ja is deprecated , doujin, literally "same person" but meaning "people with the same interests") and shi (誌code: ja is deprecated , ,"magazine"). Shi is a contraction of the full word zasshi. Zasshi means magazine.
