I saw an article on Anime news network that I found pretty interesting and wanted to post about it here. The article is about how the organization FAKKU (fakku.net) is going to start publishing manga. Well the manga is going to be H-manga not normal manga. I know that Eroge and Hentai topics are not really talked about on this site but I wanted to post about this article due to the meaning behind it.
First some background on Fakku. This website started in 2006 is an online community where people can share, find, and talk about H-manga, doujin and other Hentai related topics. It has grown to have now over 9 million people visiting it every month. It will now also be one of the few hentai publishers in the states.
With Fakku entering the publishing market it shows in some way that the Otaku culture here in the states is alive and well. There would be no reason for them the team up with Wanimagazine to publish their hentai manga here if there was no market for it. With the amount that the site has grown it makes sense that this would be the next step in its evolution. As an Otaku my self I am happy to see that there are more organizations looking for bring more to the states (even hentai stuff). If you are interested in this kind of stuff I will post a link to their site in this article so you can check it out. The site is pretty neat even it this kind of stuff is not you cup of tea. The main thing to take away from this article is that the Otaku community is doing well and growing.
