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.
This probably. Some of the Tezuka Osamu's stuff has been kickstarted before and lot of his more-adulty stuff has some sexual content, but not enough to make it a pornography. Though, having Fakku release it would have people think it's more tied more so to sex, I reckon.

Doesn't have to be on the "fakku book" label. Even hustler use to publish normal mags like pc laptop and camera and darkroom under the Larry Flynt Publications. Just name the group Grady's select or Rei's second tier waifu book or something.

Well, if there is any question that this would fly, Project-H was allowed to do a Kickstarter for Yamatogawa (yay!!!), and even has nude (if censored) images of his work. It's about how it's proposed and as long as people don't get their panties in a bunch over it. Toshio Maeda may go a bit more off the beaten path, but his work is heavier on story. As long as they make it a goal of getting Toshio's work out here rather than just trying to sell hard-core porn, they should be golden.

I personally look forward to this! :D

Yup, I was just wondering about this project too when I saw the one from Project-H earlier. I don't see how this wouldn't be allowed if they OK'd Yamatogawa's works.

Funny how I saw the Kickstarter for Yamatogawa and wanted to mention it in this thread, but the deed was already done :D

How the heck did this get approved by Kickstarter?!

The current connotation of pornography is to intend their audience with sexual stimulation. That is all. No type of literary value is focused. Hentai is considered as 'erotica,' it's main purpose is to tell a story with sexual arousal as a second thought and that is what gives this title a chance to be on kickstarter.

How did I know? I didn't until I contacted Kickstarter about it and explained it to them what kind of project we planned to do. Their response was 'As long as it is not distasteful and offensive then your project is fine.' What is distasteful and offensive you say? We don't know until we find out. For this title, I know for a fact this will not be distasteful since this book is plain casual 'Vanilla'. =D

Other good examples of these types of projects are 'Smut Peddler,' Tezuka's Swallowing the Earth and our yaoi Kickstarter "Finder restock" was able to pass due to the positive message and artistic value they carry.


Based on this FAQ on Yamatogawa kickstarter, hentai was somehow acceptable.

Toshio Maeda kickstarter may get an OK, given that it was not distasteful and offensive.

I'm not that much aware of Toshio Maeda works but based on others, his story was more story oriented than full-pledge pornography.

Why not try contacting Kickstarter as well, and discuss this project?

Hopefully, it would get an approval!

I am just taking a stab in the dark here, but I think if they don't announce any new details at Sakura Con or Anime Boston this weekend, then I would assume we would have to wait till AX 2016 to get any news on this. Again just a spitball on what I am thinking.

Otherwise I am really looking forward to this, and I hope they coordinate it in such a way so it doesn't go live at the same time as Project-H's Kodomo No Jikan Crowdfunding Project

Awesome you will get more of my money. Any chance of a hardback stretch goal for each book along with slipcase to house them all with wrap around original artwork? I can dream.
