Doujinshi

Database Criteria

Doujinshi can be added to the website if it meets all the following criteria:

  1. The doujinshi is by an already serialized mangaka.

  2. It meets the Japanese 'Country Of Origin'.

  3. The doujinshi is not based on existing published material (anime, manga, manhwa etc.) - it must be an original work.

Doujinshi is not a format on AniList, instead, you have to the toggle the Self Published option.

The ‘original work’ rule can be waived if the doujinshi in question is by the original author of the existing material.

Example: R of Black Lagoon is a doujinshi of Black Lagoon published by the original author, Hiroe Rei.

Some doujinshi that enter serialization may be converted to the manga format provided the new serialization is not an entirely new work. Please refer to manga for more information.
