The latest crop of ero-doujinshi springs a few surprises on us, and, in particular, Strike Witches shocks by actually having the lowest proportion of ero-doujinshi of the titles sampled. Other series also prove to exhibit some unexpected turns, not least poor Kanokon…
Non-ero versus ero. These statistics are derived from doujinshi shop Tora no Ana:
- ToLOVEる-とらぶる- / To Love-Ru 190/190 (100%)
- ロザリオとバンパイア / Rozario & Vampire 19/19 (100%)
- 仮面のメイドガイ / Kamen no Maid Guy 15/15 (100%)
- セキレイ / Sekirei 12/12 (100%)
- かのこん / Kanokon 4/4 (100%)
- ストライクウィッチーズ / Strike Witches 17/20 (85.0%)
Firstly, Pantsu Witches has clearly got rapidly underway, but most surprisingly, has the highest non-ero proportion of those listed. It has been around much longer than the latest anime, so this may be a factor in both these unusual findings.
What’s more interesting by way of contrast is that ero-anime Kanokon is so unpopular a target – presumably watchers are too busy with their homework, or perhaps it is regarded as so steamy already that little can be done to enhance matters, a plausible enough explanation.
Rozario and Sekirei I think can be allowed to pass without much comment – Sekirei perhaps suffers the same problems as Kanokon.
The biggest upset? How on earth did Kamen no Maid Guy get 15 doujinshi titles, and all of them ero, for a title already known for crudely scrawled service, and one so apparently scorned?
