Coming soon to a crowd funding platform near you, we are working with Toshio Maeda to publish his entire collection of hentai manga in English! This is a massive undertaking that will take years, so we're putting together a Kickstarter campaign so that these new books don't impact our existing line up of titles. We'll be starting with Urotsukidōji - Legend of the Overfiend and after that we plan to work on La Blue Girl, Demon Beast Invasion, and Adventure Kid.

First we will be publishing a completely remastered edition of Legend of the Overfiend, which will include new chapters that have never been seen in English before (they were originally cut due to censorship). We'll be posting more details soon!

Kickstarter is now live!

Volume 1 | Volume 2

How will you Kickstart this when kickstarter does not allow adult content? Will the kickstarter not mention adult content?

In general Toshio's books are not pornographic for the sake of pornography (this is the important difference), rather they are adult stories with sex scenes. You may be familiar with a few of his works as most of them have also been turned into anime over the years, Urotsukidōji actually has a few anime adaptations.

Ah cool! That's what I feel has been lacking recently. A good story based Hentai :) Could really use more of those!

I guess I mostly know La Blue Girl from reputation - back in high school, it was the first hentai any of us had ever heard of. I'm tentatively interested in this stuff. If I end up liking it, I'll be cursing myself for not going to the panel at AX2015 though!

This is pretty great, I just hope we can pledge a certain amount per book and not have to commit to $500 from the start to back all the books on kickstarter.

Feel free to post suggestions on different backer tiers, we haven't finalized them yet!

We had the pleasure of having dinner with him at Hooters in LA during Expo and he's the crudest funniest man I've ever met. He's a blast to be around.

I've hit that point now where I factor in Fakku! among bills and food. Going into 2016, I'm okay with this. Can't wait to see the Kickstarter!

For rewards, since La Blue Girl actually does exist from the last generation of USA hentai, it'd be really cool to see some new 2015 exclusive Fakku! Kickstarter/store art work from Toshio Maeda himself. Posters/prints could be made for mid-to-high tier backers and the original piece of art for the higher-to-highest tier reward.

Oh I remember it being licensed in french a long time ago, though the only Toshio Maeda volumes I found were very old versions of La Blue Girl (not added in my collection because I don't wanna treasure hunt over the internet to get the rest of the serie).

I'm definitely interested to see how it goes.

>while checking the infos on the manga to search for the number of volumes, I happened to find out that in the 90s the anime was often sold in the children cartoon section in France. What the fuck?

I dunno if you people are aware of it, but there's another site -- similar to kickstarter, but for adult-related stuff -- called OffBeatr. If KS says 'nope', you could try there instead.

Does that only apply for real porn or something? There's been several adult-oriented Kickstarters in the past. Grisaia visual novel series, the recent Muv-Luv visual novel kickstarter, even Yaoi manga has been on kickstarter in the past.

Not sure how much I'm interested in these, to be honest, but I will at least take a look when you get this up and decide then. Depends on how much money I have available as well, still so many books here I need to buy too...

My brother, and I met Toshio Maeda a few months ago. Such a great guy. And even though I'm tight on cash, I'm super hyped at the thought of La Blue Girl, and Urotsukidoji possibly getting that top quality, book treatment. They'd go nice in my collection. If only all old school manga (hentai, or not) can get this treatment.

I haven't actually read any of his manga but I've heard much about them, mostly from people who were scared shitless by them.

So I'll support this ;)

If payments are acceptable through Fakku for this, I would for example suggest a subscription tier, where users can stay subscribed and receive a book every time it comes out without having to commit to individual volumes like the volume sales now. You would need an initial commitment for 1 book ~$25 on Kickstarter to get started.

Another idea for Kickstarter would be a bundle option. Where you commit to X amount of books. Let's say to get the project off the ground, you need enough funding for 3 books, Urotsukidōji, La Blue Girl and Demon Beast Invasion. So you can make a tier to have people pay $75 for the three books, plus maybe throw in a cool bonus like a poster, sticker, t-shirt, etc.

I'm personally a sucker for special backer things, a figure, an autographed poster, etc, so that can be another tier with x amount of books for $250 for example.

Another idea is a voucher system. You commit to $100 for example and you get 4 vouchers, redeemable for any books that comes out now or in the future. And you could even let users redeem them on existing books in the fakku library both digital and physical, not necessarily Toshio Maeda's.

Each of those are actually entire series rather than single books. Urotsukidoji alone has a 300 page long first volume, and there are three more volumes after that.
