Being a fan of series such as Genshiken, I was immediately drawn to this book when I saw it. The series surrounds a young girl (Najimi) who has decided that she will make doujinshi in order to become wealthy after discovering that some authors make thousands of yen from selling their wares. Along for the ride are her friends Tsuyuri (who introduces her to the world of doujinshi) & Justice (a childhood friend who seems to have some designs on Najimi). Add in a moe character of Sora, who's a l ...more

I really wasn't sure what I was getting myself into when I picked up this book, but the premiss seemed entertaining and it was a very quick read.
The dialogue was a bit confusing at times and this book didn't have a note anywhere but in the author's bit at the back about this book being a collection of four-strip comics comprised into a full manga. (I'd had to assume it until it was confirmed.)
I wasn't prepared for the amount of perversion in the actions of the characters themselves, but this per

(This review is for the whole series.)

I picked this up kind of on the spur. I wasn’t too sure what to expect, though I figured it would be comedy. I also thought it would be a little dirty. I wasn’t expecting it to be so good, though.

This is mostly made up of four-panel comics, and I like those. It’s pretty much all comedy, and it’s well-done. The artwork is pretty good.

There’s a group of four-to-six main characters, and they’re all hilarious. There are misunderstandings, and lots of und

Not the best thing I've ever read... Honestly, I have the first 4 manga volumes (and three DVDs) because a coworker had them and was also not overly thrilled with the series. But that's not to say it's horrible... There's very little plot or character development, but the art style was nice enough, it was a quick read, and it did make me laugh from time to time. I have not done much (and by 'much' I mean 'any') research into how long this series is, but I do plan on continuing, at least to finis ...more

A good 4-koma book about how a girl named Najimi learns to make doujinshi and profit off of it.

It's funny, and ecchi; the great combination, like that of Love Hina. I cannot wait for the release of number 2!!

More manga about people who draw yaoi manga. It's not Genshiken, but it is silly.
