How much of the music in your music library is doujin?

What an interesting poll! I was surprised by the results, actually. The lowest and highest amounts were right at the top. But comparing how many people had -10%-20% to how many had 80%-90%+ is really actually a big number difference. Surprisingly, I only ranked my music library as 70-80%. I thought this was quite generous but what actually counts as doujin music? Touhou, tracks, obviously. But what about a plethora of Vocaloid tracks? Well I guess you could use your discretion on that. But to see how much of my music library is doujin we’re going to get mathical (new word) and tally it all up, Vocaloid included.

Okay. Let’s look at my playlists in iTunes that are 100% doujin*.
Albatrosicks – 46 tracks
Alternait – 56 tracks
Doujin (.misc) – 28 tracks
pre-holder / Observer – 18 tracks
Rokkenjima in Love – 9 tracks
Touhou – 110 tracks
Touhou II – 43 tracks
Touhou OST – 91 tracks
Trance/Trancecore – 36 tracks
Umineko no Naku Koro ni game OST – 197 tracks
Vocaloid – 82 (+40) tracks
– 756 tracks out of 1903 total tracks.
– 40% of 1900 tracks in my library are doujin.

Wow! I was way off! But 756 seems like a lot (okay, maybe not) so I just guessed based on a number like that!

Like I said, I really enjoyed watching that one progress. It’s been awhile since I commented on a long running poll too.

(for the record, I have many more albums on my computer that just aren’t on my itunes. Not sure why that is relevant to the results but eh whatever)

*the definition for doujin music in this case is anything not professionally made or, as a better rule of thumb, if it’s sold at events like Comiket & misc.

    I would guess my library is about 30-40% doujin. The only thing saving it are band discographies lol.

    Hmm.. let’s see

    2766 Vocaloid tracks
    813 Vulpvibe Records tracks
    443 IOSYS tracks
    348 ZUN tracks
    303 Comiket 78 tracks
    124 LOLI RIPE tracks
    72 misc doujin tracks

    Out of 8139 tracks, that makes my library just about 60% doujin.

    Higher than I’d expect, I guess, although I knew I had that much Vocaloid. I’m counting Vulpvibe Records even though they have nothing to do with the traditional Japanese “doujin scene” because they’re all made by one guy and released via his website. I’d forgotten I had so much by him.

    My non-doujin portion is mostly made up of good ol’ fashioned band discographies.
