Abstract: Fanworks are creative works that explicitly make use of characters and/or settings found in a copyrighted work. They are created by fans all over the world and range from fan-made manga (dōjinshi) to pieces of fanfic (shōsetsu), narrative texts from a few dozen words to novel-length, fan art (ichimai irasuto), individual pictorial depictions, musical pieces (dōjin ongaku), for instance, songs based on characters, and many other media. In this paper, I focus on fan-made manga such as those most often published in dōjinshi fanzines. I have two purposes: to examine the current position of dōjinshi within manga studies in general, and to describe several key areas in which more extensive dōjinshi research might offer distinctive contributions to manga studies.
