I think almost everyone here enjoys watching anime, reading manga and light novels, playing anime related/style games, cosplaying, buying figures, building gundam models/ wall scrolls etc.

But is anyone else here on CR into the dark side of otaku culture? LIke, does anyone else enjoy reading hentai manga/ doujinshi or playing eroge?

I'll be honest here. I love hentai/doujins just as much as regular manga/light novels and anime. Have been into them since high school. And i have started to officially buy eroge to play on my computer. I own three so far but would like to get more.

One of my favorite genres is Vanilla. I feel like hentai/ doujins give you what you are hoping for when it comes to anime/ manga couple shipping.

One of the reasons I got into shipping nico x maki from live live was when I stumbled into some love love yuri doujins featuring them both way back before the second season started . After reading them I felt so happy seeing them express their love for each other and have since then shipped them. they are my one and only OTP <3

anyways my questions for you all are:

For those who aren't into this, what is the reason you haven't immersed yourself into hentai/ doujins/ eroge?

For those of you who like/love hentai/doujinshi/eroge, how did you get into it, what is it that you like about them?

Also for those of you who also watch love live and also ship nico x maki, how did you begin to ship them?

I dunno, the VN poster/catalog I got with my LE Steins;Gate has some pretty interesting looking titles. So at some point, I may try some eroge.

At the very least, it reminded me that I have to get Saya no Uta.

I don't have a problem with the dark side of otaku culture, but not really a fan either. I mean the closest thing I've ever seen remotely close to hentai would be watching School Days, and even that would seem rather tame. I don't know I mean some of the light novels from the dark side of otaku culture are nice and quite well written, but I've never seen anything close to hentai. Reading things like doujins would be as close as I've ever been to something that extreme. Personally hentai just isn't my cup of tea, but I guess it's all about preference.

First gonna say I love the dark underbelly of any fandom, including the Anime/Manga world.


Of course that said... I have never actually read a hentai manga or doujinshi that I am honestly aware of, closest I have gotten is Monster Musume, which is just a mature manga, other than the snippits that pop up on Tumblr when searching for a particular Anime or Manga sometimes (i've seen some crazy Nibutani x everyone else from Chu-2 stuff...).


As for Eroge, I have probably... half a dozen or so titles? It started out as just getting an all ages VN from j-list, which came with some recommendations for other games (plus every so often the owner of j-list talks about some of the games from his site on his blog or facebook pages), one of those games ended up being an Eroge and I enjoyed it.

Also a lot of good anime in my opinion come from Eroge, such as Shuffle!, so that kind of gives another recommendation.

I enjoy Hentai/Doujinshi, but you have to be wary about how deep you delve into it. Some things cannot be unseen. Vanilla is a great thing to stick to.

At first I thought reading Doujinshi would ruin my image of a series somehow, but it doesn't. I usually just see in the same way as filler episodes in anime, it doesn't affect the story, it just adds a short story on the side.

I have seen the otaku side. I would be arrested if I said the stuff I saw. I will refrain from doing so, I rather like myself to much to go to jail.

For H-manga and doujins: Many are great, many are trash. Pretty much the same as regular manga. I search H-manga sites on a daily basis just in case. Also, most H-Anime are trash, so no, don't watch those at all.
Eroge: Play some, sadly most great ones go untranslated for years, and sometimes are never translated, which makes me sad.

For Nico x Maki; Got into them after seeing them together so often in most official arts, then when I saw that scene in the Mogyutto PV, instant shipping. Then afterwards stumbled upon some of the doujins Yuri-ism translated and the shipping got stronger. I am so freaking happy of how much more they have been together in the Anime lately, so many hnnnnnnng moments!! >w<

My OTP is KyouSaya (Kyouko x Sayaka) from Madoka Magica tho, can't find any other pairings to be more beautiful than them. Nico Maki is pretty close on second place, but just don't come as close.

Well, I don't normally "look for" hentai. If I happened to run into one that's really high on the popularity list somewhere and check it out, it would also have to have a good story to back it up.

I thought Nozoki Ana had really good story, which kept me interested. Otherwise, no.

The bright side is they'd also have to imprison well over half of //AMP// so that jail should at least be kind of fun.

I hope they let us build pillow forts. And play alien. Lock-ins aren't any fun without pillows and games.

Yeah i totally agree with you.. there are lots of great hentai/doujins and bad ones in each genre of hentai/doujins. I pretty much read them every night but im picky with what i read. mostly vanilla which tend to include wincest and other stuff. but i also explore trap and ntr and the rest of the genres. I have many favorite artists such as NAPATA and homunculus.

I too love me some kyouko x sayaka. For them it was the fan art that started it and later intensified when I began to see them together more frequently in the anime, the 2 remake movies, and the rebellion movie. Yurism's translations maxed out my ship for both nico x maki and
kyouko x sayaka >.<

This was during my trip to Japan, I think whatever I saw (not mentioning) tops /AMP/ by miles and miles.

I rather not be the first to be convicted. The lesser sentences of /AMP/ will make me feel lonely.

Oh yeah, I don't think I've seen anything actually in //AMP// that I'd question the legality of.

I've just... ah... taken an interest... in some of what I've seen mentioned there occasionally. The rest is inference.

Anyway, not being in jail! Not being in jail is good.
