Where to purchase doujinshi ?
Are you looking for doujinshi (a manga or fan artbook)? Are the titles you are looking for not available for scanning, do you want to complete your collection, or do you wish to receive exclusive pre-order bonuses?
Today, we are offering you a guide for your doujinshi purchases:
Melonbooks and Toranoana the best place for your doujinshi
Often recommended by our customers, Melonbooks and Toranoana are two great shops in the doujinshi universe. From amateur circles to professional authors, you will find a VERY wide range of books to choose from.
These two shops are also particularly appreciated for their exclusive pre-order bonuses! Each site offers a different one, meaning that many members of our community buy one copy at a time on both Melonbooks and Toranoana in order to receive both bonuses and complete their collection.
