The majority of amateur manga artists are women in their teens and twenties and most of what they draw is homoerotica based on parodies of leading commercial manga series for men. From 1988, the amateur manga movement expanded so rapidly that by 1992 amateur manga conventions in Tokyo were being attended by over a quarter of a million young people. This paper traces the origins and genres of amateur manga and asks why its fans and producers became the source of nationwide controversy and social discourse about otaku in the first half of the 1990s.
