The Great Black Dog Library

This “article” here is meant to serve as a sort of repository for all information pertaining to Black Dog’s work that I’ve been able to find, or deduce on my own, including release dates, trivia, and download links for scans of both raw and translated versions of the books, when I can find them (or scan them myself).

I make no claim that this is 100% complete or entirely accurate, but I do the best with the resources I have at my disposal (namely, the information in the books themselves, Mugimugi’s Doujinshi database, Wikipedia, places I order doujin from, and the help of others). If you find any information here to be incorrect, or find that I’m missing something, please let me know in the comments, and I’ll see to making the appropriate changes.

Please note: That this article is still very much under construction, and for the time being, the download links are pretty limited. I’ve only included links for the books I’ve already re-edited or scanned. I plan to eventually add links for the books I will probably never re-edit/scan (either because they’re extremely difficult to find or expensive).

Eventually, it is my goal to have re-scanned and re-edited as many of Black Dog’s books as possible, and this includes the early Submission books which I’ve already re-edited with someone elses’ scans (those scans were better than the really old ones, but still not quite up to my standards now that I’m scanning Black Dog books myself). However, the older stuff that’s been more poorly scanned/edited is my first priority.

Finally, there is some more information about Black Dog, and my thoughts on his work, below the “list” portion of this article. Read it if you’re interested.

The List:

First off, it may be worth noting that I have this list seperated into Sailor Moon, and non-Sailor Moon doujin, and within these two lists, the books are ordered by their original release date. Next to the book name, I’ve put the original release date, and then most recent reprint date (that I know of).

In brackets with the original release date I’ve put abbreviated names for the conventions the books are released at. C# = Comiket, CR# = Comic Revolution, SC# = Sunshine Creation and C1☆# = COMIC1☆. At the very bottom is also a short list of the collaboration doujins he’s done with other circles.

A series of question marks means I have no available information there. A question mark next to some information means it’s something I haven’t 100% confirmed to be true.

Submission Sailorstars Junbi Gou? – 1999/12/26 (C57) – 2000/01/20
This is an vastly incomplete version of Submission Sailorstars, which was not finished until almost three years later. It starts without the Sailor Saturn intro portion, and ends at the point where the whole group sex part of the book starts in the full version (page 46). The title page is sketchy and unfinished, as are several other aspects of the book; namely, the shading and background tones are missing in a lot of areas. This version doesn’t have anything that isn’t included in the full thing, so unless you’re really into collecting every little thing, you probably don’t need this one.

This is a compilation of some of Black Dog’s earliest work, most of which are Evangelion parodies that featured as part of other circles’ books, I believe. The chapters are as follows:

  • Male Cuisine: Eating Ayanami (Evangelion Parody)
  • Male Cuisine: Eating Asuka (Evangelion Parody)

Refers again to the Pink Floyd song, “Echoes”. Note that in JBZ, there are three Stands called Echoes (Act 1, 2, and 3), though there are not multiple “acts” of the Pink Floyd song (though it is a very long song that probably could be divided into seperate parts).

Azunyan to Dokidoki Chikan Densha – 2010/04/29(COMIC1☆4) – 2010/06/20
K-ON Parody
Unlike almost every other Black Dog doujin, this title doesn’t seem to be a reference to anything. “Azunyan” refers to the featured K-ON character, Azusa, having worn cat ears at one point or something, Dokidoki is the Japanese onomatopoeia for heartbeats, and Chikan Densha means train molestor/pervert. I dunno why he’s foregone his usual naming convention here… it’s not like he’s run out of Stands to pick from, and it’s not like he doesn’t just pick them at random half the time anyway.
I’ll probably be getting this one to re-scan eventually, but it’s not a super high priority.

Collaboration Books:

Untitled Nausicaa Parody – ???
Black Dog did an untitled Nausicaa parody for some sort of doujin compilation with other authors I think. I have no further information about it, really. I think it’s somewhat recent (as in, 2008ish) but I’m not certain. Takehiro translated it mid-2008, and I actually didn’t even find the raws until somewhat recently.
Since I will probably never find a hard copy of this, I will put links up to what I have available later.

Midgard <Ing> Submission Sailor Moon After – 2008/04/27 (COMIC1☆2)
I have little information on this one. It’s a short collaboration doujin Black Dog did with Circle Outer World, who’s well known for his long running Ah! My Goddess parody series. In it, Outer World did a short Sailor Moon parody, and Black Dog did a short Ah! My Goddess parody.
Links to scans I found will be added later.

Ai ga Tomaranai – Maria-sama ga Miteiru dake – 2009/04/26 (COMIC1☆3)
I have no information on this one, other than release date, and the fact that it was another collaboration with Circle Outer World. I don’t even have scans for this.

Submission Sailormoon After – 2010/03/21 (Comiket Special 5)
Another collaboration doujin with Circle Outer World, a bit longer than the other one. It appears to be a continuation of the first one they did, with Outer World doing more Sailor Moon, and Black Dog doing more Ah! My Goddess parody. I read a description somewhere of the Sailor Moon story as something like… it’s a post-Sailor Moon story with Usagi and Mamoru having been married for several years, Usagi puts on her old Sailor outfit and they sneak out for some sex in a park, and a bunch of creepy dudes watch from the bushes… That sounds about right.
Links to scans I found will be added later.


About Black Dog:

Almost all of Black Dog’s book names are references to “Stands“, which are magical powers in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. These Stands are themselves references to some Tarot cards and Egyptian deities, but most of them are western rock/pop musical references (either band, song, or album names). Black Dog’s own author/circle name is almost certainly a reference to the Led Zeppelin song of the same name, which I’m not sure is a JoJo reference or not, since I can’t find anythong on it. So it’s possible Black Dog is a a fan of rock music as well, or is familiar at least some of the things the Stands are referencing… but then again, who knows? Anyway, in listing the references above, I’ve just gone straight to their end source, and not mentioned the whole JoJo connection, since as I said before, basically ALL of these are from there. The only exception to this general naming convention is his early “Submission” series, where it’s referring directly to which Sailor Senshi is involved.

I’d be lying if I said I recognised ALL these references off the top of my head, but I am familiar with most of them. Regardless, I did quite a bit of consulting with Wikipedia, and for the sake of simplicity, I’ve just linked to the appropriate article there as required.

Finally, on to a little bit of information/history about Black Dog (what little I could find and put together, that is).

Black Dog, or Kuro Inu (which is Japanese for Black Dog), is a doujin author/circle. “Circle” being what they call the groups that produce doujin in Japan, they’re quite often just made up of one artist/author, as is the case for Black Dog. I’ll admit that I know very little about the author himself; I don’t know what his actual name is (or if he’s ever even made it public), and to my knowledge, he does not produce commercial manga works, pornographic or otherwise. Though he has occasionally released short works as part of other circles’ books.

He’s most well known for his series of Sailor Moon parody doujin, which he has been producing since around the time the anime originally aired in Japan, and has continued to do so to this day (the anime ran from 1992 to 1997). He’s been releasing one new Sailor Moon based doujin at almost every Comiket since he started, and occasionally even more at other conventions like Comic Revolution, and as you can see from the list above, that adds up to quite a lot of books over the years. He also does other parodies on occasion, and usually releases these at other conventions as well.

Black Dog’s early work in the “Submission” series is of particular note, because of how much emphasis is put on the plot driving the story along, and in light of its blatantly pornographic content, I’d say it’s even on par with a lot of non-porn manga. It’s not just a throwaway setup preceding a rape fantasy, it’s a whole overarching “mythology” he’s created for these characters that continues from one book to the next… which just happens to be pornographic in nature. Essentially, he created his own self-contained story arc, where the antagonists are all male descendents or leftovers from the Dark Kingdom, whose goal (aside from the obligatory goal of world domination) is to get revenge on the Sailor Senshi. This all culminated in the 154 page long epic “Submission Sailorstars”, with the length alone being something almost never seen for a single doujin manga, but the second half of the book is also completely devoid of any porn content. Clearly, this was Black Dog’s one last shot at some serious Sailor Moon fanwork before moving on.

After the Submission series ended (and even with some of the side-story stuff before it ended), for the most part, the books became less driven by serious stories, and more focused on just the porn part. This is not to say that they are of any less quality than the earlier stuff, but it is a definite shift in the KIND of content you’re looking at here – and Black Dog is still a master of erotic content, first and foremost. And even though he never went back to the more elabourate narrative structure again, he still continued to build upon, and create new aspects to his own little parody version of the Sailor Moon universe.

Black Dog’s work was quite possibly the first doujin I’d ever encountered, and so has a special place for me because of that. Despite the fact that I’m really only somewhat familiar with the actual Sailor Moon manga or anime, I’ve grown to appreciate Black Dog’s own little “mythology” he’s created for the series, as perverted as it may be. If anything, I’ve become more of a Sailor Moon fan almost entirely because of Black Dog. This is not something I can say for pretty much any other doujin artist out there (Studio Kimagabuchi may be the one other exception, but that’s a different thing entirely), because most of the time, the series a doujin is parodying is completely irrelevant to me, and very few parody doujin actually get me interested in finding out more about its source material.

Anyway, I hope you’ve enjoyed this little project of mine, or at least it a little bit educational/interesting. Failing all of that, I suspect you’ll at least find the download links for everything useful once they’re all there.
