Doujinshis and doujinshika

Anyone have fav doujinshi and/or doujinshika? Especially websites of artists? (I used to adore the use of negative space and all.)

I think one of the most influential artists for me was Halco/Chikadoh. There was just something about the expressions of their Iruka that have always stuck with me, especially the smitten smiles and the sad gazes.

Omg I red so much Halco when I was younger… :slight_smile:

halco is peak, honestly! tbh i spent most of my time staring at kakashi’s face - i don’t know how they pull it off?? the softness, the fondness, and the mischievous persistence? quality!!! :blush:

other than halco… it’s not really a published doujin but a published comic on pixiv! it’s about a shrine master iruka getting bothered by this annoying fox spirit. wonder who could it be? :stuck_out_tongue:

@rikacain You can’t just say that and not leave a link. Rude. :wink:

IKR share you meanie pouts

eh i was just deliberating on whether to leave it here or in the recs section! i swear i’m not holding out on you guys!!

edit: link can be found in the Rec category under the topic The Summer Fox!

Unpopular opinion in the English fandom, but HALCO has never been my favorite. I like some of her stuff, but there are many circles I like better. Plus she hasn’t been active in the KakaIru fandom in over a decade now.

I won’t say I like all of these more than HALCO, but here are a bunch of the ones I like that are currently active. Apologies for being lazy and leaving their names in Japanese.

Also, this is only a fraction of the currently active circles. One of these days I really should sit down and do a more exhaustive list.

Aw man, you beat me to it! I was gonna sit down over the weekend and post up a rec list for pixiv/twitter artists but you hit most of the people I’d recommend I think!

Classics are good but new content is definitely better! We ought to encourage current creators as much as we can :blush:

Oh man I’ve just started looking through them. Oh my god they’re fabulous, I’m sad I can’t read them but the illustrations are just stunning and holy jebus one of them makes Iruka cake toppers… Squees know what I want for my birthday cake next year lol.

I just did circles that are actively putting out books currently (and not even close to all of them). If you add people who just do KakaIru art, there are so many more to recommend.

If anyone wants more twitter recommendations, here are a few more.

I clicked on like one artist’s feed from this and I’m already on the floor from overdose. You have to label this much quality kakairu. :skull_and_crossbones:

Hakata Kansai and Saitou are my two faves, tbh. I have read a fair bit of Halco and Jerry Angel :slight_smile:

Thanks for the recs and links! It’s been quite a long time since I read new doujinshi things. I’m sure I will have some good times with these ones!
