A doujinshi (also called a doujin) is a fan made novel, manga, or other piece of written/drawn work.


Dōjin soft (同人ソフト) also sometimes called dōjin games (同人ゲーム) are video games created by Japanese hobbyists or hobbyist groups (referred to as "circles"), more for fun than for profit; essentially, the Japanese equivalent of independent video games. Most of them are based on pre-existing material, but some are entirely original creations. They are almost always exclusive to Windows-based PCs, but a few notable exceptions also exist for the Dreamcast, because of its very weak copy protection.
