I was looking at the hentai advice thread saw Acmurphy was thinking bout doing a "What are you watching now: Hentai Style" thread. Saw it's been a few weeks since then, so I thought I'd go ahead and pull the trigger on the idea. Not that I've actually bought any new hentai anime lately; I just figure it's a good idea to start it up anyway.

If it's okay, I've also edited the title so it includes what your reading. I figure that since hentai "watching now" and "reading now" threads would both end up in the Hentai/Adult area, why not just do them as one thread? Example of reading now: I'd ordered Please Miss Yuri from J-list not too long ago, and it was in the mail the day I bought the most recent volumes of OMG reprints from Borders. Starts up with a kid named Jun Takeuchi ducking into (what I assume to be) a classroom to ditch an admirer who wants to walk home from school with him, only to catch teacher Yuri Amano ... enjoying herself. Worried that Takeuchi's going to get word out that she's a perv who's into masturbating at school, Amano Sensei offers herself to him in exchange for his silence. Won't spoil anything after that, except that after Takeuchi's admirer barges in on the action, I feel things get a bit strange.

Edit: Another reason why I think hentai "watching now" and "reading now" threads would work better combined is that I don't feel hentai manga's as common a thing in the states as hentai anime. Not that you can get hentai DVDs at, say, Wal-Mart, but I've personally never seen a hentai manga available where I've seen hentai DVDs available...

Yes, I did sort of drop the ball on making this thread didn't I? Well, combining the watching and reading may not be a bad idea for the moment, though if there was a reading thread it probably would have been better suited to the Erotic Doujinshi section. But that will only matter if people actually start posting about what h-mangas they're reading.

Watched Ninja Love yesterday. It's another one of these fan made titles with popular characters in it. None of them have been particularly interesting (skipped though the Sailormoon/DBZ ones and watched the Mania - Secret of the Green Tentacle one). The technical aspects are always so bad it just ruins the whole thing (though I can't say they can exactly rest on the quality of their stories either). Ninja Love was much the same. Awful animation, character designs, voice acting, etc. Though I do love how they keep using Nadia in these things :) I will be posting a review for it soon. (The same goes for Stainless Night, which will be up a bit afterwords).

I see the point about Doujinshi. Its just that Icarus Publishing (the publisher of Please Miss Yuri) is the only company I'm aware of currently publishing h-manga. Beyond that I can see Erotic Doujinshi being a better place for a reading now thread.

Ah, I see what you did there! (I was slightly confused at first). Some sort of erotic doujinshi/h-manga separation. I was just lumping them together as adult print material under the "Erotic Doujinshi" title :? No need to worry about it too much now, it's not like posts about what people are reading are coming fast and furious :lol: I'm either going to expand the Erotic Doujinshi area or merge all these adult topics together since having them separate don't seem to serve much of a purpose with the amount of posts they're receiving.

Here's the separation. I think Doujinshi is self-released. Not the case in the example I've given, at least not for the English translation, whose publisher I posted a link to past post.

Only other publisher like this I've known of is Manga18, a manga arm of Anime18 (which in turn is an arm of Central Park Media I think, or at least it used to be), and I think the last new thing Anime18 came out with was in 2006. Point here is that there's so little h-manga/Doujinshi (at least that I'm aware of) that I didn't see the sense in having "watching now" and "reading now" topics as separate threads for hentai at the time I merged them. I know you can get Japanese-language titles from J-list, but even then... If there was more, I agree they should be separated.

Okay, you're seeing me utterly confused.
So, what is this thread about? I seem to have understood that it's not about Dôjinshi.
But what are Dôjinshi? Literally it's an artistic piece of work that was done by a group of people sharing the same interests. Most people who know the term will think that "Dôjinshi" exclusively refers to pornographic parodies of more or less famous Manga/comic publications, but that's too narrow.

I don't like the notion that the denotation of the word should be reduced to "self-released" graphic works, because when a circle of creators gets discovered by a publisher, they continue doing the same work, but it's not considered "dôjin" work anymore? I dunno whether I can agree to that, but of course I cannot beat general use.

Which is to say, and please correct me if I'm wrong, that this thread is for erotic comics in Japanese style which have been officially published by a company?
Because, well, many parodies are officially and professionally printed and sold by a publishing company in form of anthologies, such as "Angelic Impact", "Paradise Lost", or "Lunatic Party", to mention three famous titles, or the very high quantity of anthology magazines that feature different artists, different parody titles, along with many original works.

Where is the line?

Hmn. I think your right that I shouldn't have reduced it to simply being self-released. It's just my understanding that dōjinshi creators "prefer to publish their own materials", which is what is meant by "self-release".

Did Clamp stop being dōjinshi creators? I've read they started out as a dōjinshi group of 11 known as Clamp Cluster.

I was thinking more generally, and if you think about it, I suppose a more general "Reading Now" topic can include dōjinshi. I just don't feel it should be restricted to that; that restriction is why the move to the Erotic Doujinshi area would happen.

Watched Sexual Pursuit and the first episode of Study-A-Broad. Sexual pursuit wasn't bad, though I'm not really the biggest fan of incest stuff. Little brother tackles both his mother and sister. The first isn't so bad, because him and his mother are being controlled by this dice game they are playing. Making them do these things to one another, though they only seem to mind slightly, at first, then they don't care. With his sister though it doesn't quite work like that, as she is dreaming about her brother and mother having sex and it's making her all hot and bothered because she secretly wants to be with him. And after the dice game makes her give her bother a little show, they take the reins themselves. The second episode is actually filled with about 5 minutes of flashbacks from the first episode, and even taking that out of the equation fails to be as interesting as the first. Not bad, just not very good.

Then the first episode of Study-a-Broad was just boring and uninteresting. New teacher comes in and rapes a teacher and student (who for some reason calls him brother, even though they just knew each other when they were younger). Yawn. It was also canceled after the first episode, and I can see why. I will say the guy is such a bastard that he was somewhat entertaining.

"It's like I'm being raped."
"I'm actually intending to rape you right now."
:lol:

The second episode is actually from a completely different release. I guess they decided to bundle them together as a way of being nice and not trying to sell two 30 minute DVDs. Hopefully the second episode is more interesting than the first one ended up.

How about a bump for this thread that is not from a spam-bot for a change?

Decided to pick up Comic AG #101 from J-List, recently, and it was in the mail box today. To clarify my previous comment about Icarus Comics, I meant they're the only company I know about that is translating h-manga into English. Think Central Park Media's Anime 18 arm used to have a manga counterpart, but I don't think that's been active for a while, and I don't believe Anime18 itself exists anymore, either. (Either that or they've been taken over by Critical Mass, which is implied by the fact that Anime 18's website URL now redirects to the official Critical Mass page.)

Anyway, Comic AG is an anthology series like Shonen Jump (only h-manga), maybe 80 pages or so including a contents page and the promotion of other Icarus titles. It's the same size as a normal modern day comic (like Spider-Man or Detective Comics [which was itself an anthology at one time], for example), only printed as it should be (meaning it reads from top right to bottom left). Consists of 4 titles:

1 – Hand Job Duty by Satoshi Kishinosato: It isn't so much that Abiru has drawn the namesake of this story that has her all frustrated. It's the "huge disparity in popularity" between Rikka (the other girl "on duty" today) and herself. The guys see that she's alright once Rikka becomes so popular that they need to give Abiru a chance in order to get their hand jobs before class starts again, and once that happens, she comes around to the point of going above and (very much) beyond her duty...

2 - Dangerous Compensation by Yuuki: Manami Onodera is on her way home from a year-end party held by a friend in senior-high. She makes the mistake of using a snow-covered road she isn't familiar with when driving home, and gets stuck. For some reason we also notice that she's really low on gas; likely do demonstrate the risk of Manami freezing to death, if she has to wait too long for help. Fortunately, someone turns up. The catch: he wants something in return. As for what...well, it's an h-manga.

3 – The Girl With a Thousand Curses by Togashi: Clearly a series. (This chapter is marked "episode 7", and there's an ad for a tankōbon on the inside back cover.) The title character is named Tia. She's a futanari whose curses (as I gather from the ad) include a dog demon, an "Elfin mistress of phallic magic" who dabbles in nymphomania, and Melte, a futanari succubus who can apparently sprout tentacles around her...um...thingie...for additional pleasure. This chapter is either a self-contained encounter between Tia and Melte on what seems to be a camping trip (implied by the fact that it happens inside a tent) or the tail-end of an encounter between the two.

4 – Sexy Losers by Clay B: a single page containing 2 vertical comic strips. Black and white versions of "The Goth Cycle" and "On Socialized Health Insurance". Comics had the address of an official site.

Yes sir! I would post here much more often but I typically review the hentai titles I watch so it seems a tad redundant. But, given that's not a problem for the rest of you, I can only assume you all are hentai deprived. A sad state of being to be sure :cry:

Well I'm about halfway through the second episode of Dragon Pink. It's a pretty standard game-like hentai title with instances of RPG elements in it(like saying someone just took 38 points of damage). It's nothing special though, and the animation leaves something to be desired. And the main guy is really a bastard to Pink, she should really give him what for one of these times!

Also saw the Kama Sutra. That was a little odd having it take place in India, which was rather strange for a hentai title. Again though, nothing special about it really. It was a sweet little story but didn't have enough going on to keep things interesting.

That's actually being released here in the states by Incarus Publishing. I was looking at buying it during their last sale since it sounded rather interesting but sadly I got to the party too late. I'll have to keep an eye on it.

Actually, the comic those were from - Comic AG #101 - is from Icarus as well.

Ah, I had no idea Icarus was also a Japanese company releasing the products. Just figured it was a US company releasing the titles over here. Well that's good to know. How was the story you read in The Girl With a Thousand Curses? You talked a lot about it but I don't really know what you thought of it in the end.

No, Comic AG is translated. If there's a version of AG in Japan I am unaware of, which is easy to pull off, what I bought was the US edition (much like how the version of Shonen Jump I read is the US edition that can be found, say, down at the Fry's Marketplace. Only AG wouldn't be found at the local newsstand given it's nature.). As I said before, I bought AG #101 from J-List: I'll link their product listing here.

As for The Girl With a Thousand Curses, your right, I don't think I did give my opinion, did I? I rather liked it. No real story about how they happened to be camping (which was apparently the case), but looking back, I think such back story would have gotten in the way of what was otherwise a good story. Seems like it's been serialized at least a bit in recent issues of AG before 101, and I'm pretty sure I mentioned the ad for a graphic novel (implying one is coming).

And the pieces slowly start to fit together :lol:

Well, as you said before with it being Episode7, there may have been a bit of back story about how they got there before it (unless that is just a standalone story with the same characters.)

Watched Imouto Jiru (or Younger Sisters Juice), the predecessor of the very similar Anejiru The Animation that Flame-X recommended me in the first hentai contest. The setup in both are effectively the same, centered around female juice collection. Imouto Jiru has much more of a loli disposition over the two episode however, which leads to a number of cute situations, much like in The Story of Little Monica. I was sort of surprised that he never got with the eldest sister, but did it with both of the younger sisters and their mother :clap: He just couldn't quite complete the set before losing his penis :sweat: Twas a simple and sweet little tale though, with a bit of comedy for good measure.
