Eroge and Doujinshi
Akihabara. Otaku heaven full of figures, gundams, electronics, maid cafes, candy girls and of course - ero stuff.
If you dont know by now, "ero" = short form of "erotic" = adult. Eroge is basically adult games - you may know of them as "hentai games".
Doujinshi are self published manga or novels - many of which are of the ero variety.
This was taken in Akiba last week. Otaku generally want to get hold of their eroge on the day of release and what they will do is come to a shop like this to reserve their games. On the day of release, you will see lines of otaku waiting outside the shop early in the morning.
Some of the following photos are NSFW.
What I recently discovered is that there are a lot of Doijinshi makers that make eroge too - less than half the price of a commercial eroge and the quality of some of the games (the images I mean) are really nice too.
Many Doijinshi eroge makers dont bother with packaging which is why you can buy a lot of them online at places like Melon Books.
Sorry - didnt bother censoring with the Mirai mark today. If you are under 18 just cover your eyes leaving a gap in yer fingers.
With the Doujin world, you get to see your favorite anime character doing things that you have always imagined.
I still dont understand the tentacle thing though. Tentacles and Nekomimi are concepts which I still just dont understand.
Would you do up your staircase like this?
