Years before EtherFuture or doujinshi were ever a thought in my mind, I was reading essays by Patrick Macias and learning about Japanese culture with his and others as my channels. This guy is one of the most hard-working advocates for bridging the gap between Japan and America pop-cultures and really knows his “otaku” trivia and history.
With that in mind, I’m so glad I came across Otaku-VerseZero‘s latest season 2 episode focusing solely on the doujinshi culture in Akihabara. Patrick covers the advent of doujinshi production cafes (they have cafes for everything in Japan it seems XD), the 4x/year doujinshi event called COMITIA, and shares a sneak preview into the comic-crafting software ComiPo. Though I’m not too keen on ComiPo as a doujinshi creator myself, it’s worth knowing about. Even I learned something from watching!
