Doujinshi is something of a dirty word in manga. In the, for lack of a better term, Western market, doujinshi is often thought of as adult or hentai. While a fair amount of them do seem to be focused on pairing off characters for a little bit of naked fun times, the word is actually a bit more broad than that. It encompasses smaller, self published works that are not considered canon.
In that vein, Tim followed through a request to review a Doujinshi, Evangelion RE-Take. For Eva fans it may very well be an excruciating attempt to rewrite the story. However, if you found the ending frustrating and wanted to punch every copy from then in out in the hopes that the creator could feel it in their balls, it’s a welcome read. A fair warning, there are a couple of scenes of Shinji and Asuka doing what horny teens do when their parents are gone for the weekend, just in case you plan on reading this where people can shoulder surf.
Weltall also fulfills a request posed to him via email. Wallman details a middle aged, paunchy man who lives with an older mangaka. Their seemingly dull lives are turned upside down by the arrival of a Korean exchange student who has a secret. Lucky for our protagonist, he also has a few secrets of his own as does the comedy relief of his.
