Not that the last time had any lasting effect, but I hope you're archives are ready for this. Who do you think is on the chopping block this time around?
The other Wani magazines barely get fan translations anyway and if they do they're deleted from exhentai within a week. They will definitely not license anything from other publishers soon, so them translating more magazines from Wani would be a Win-Win-Win situation: Their subscribers get more chapters each month, Fakku may get more subscribers because they have more content and pirates get more of their stuff ripped for free.
Kairakuten, most likely. The stuff published in Unreal is too extreme for most of the people who indulge in the material Fakku licenses, and LO would get them into trouble with silly Americans' inability to differentiate reality from fiction (let alone other cultures).
That's the other thing, yeah. But even then, I don't see Fakku risking its business at this moment, just to cater an even more niché sub-audience of an already niché audience in America.
And assuming they did, they'd probably go for the less good series/authors, since the really good ones tend to do more extreme or more "inappropiate" content.
>Piracy will always exist and we aren't concerning ourselves with trying to fight it
>Are there fears of people stealing Fakku published content and throwing it up on other sites?
>I alluded to this above, but we aren't really concerned about piracy.
I think Jacob might have a problem with lying.
What's wrong with that? Of course they are going to remove pirate websites from Google, they would be stupid not to. Just because they aren't concerning themselves with piracy doesn't mean they won't perform basic actions to prevent it from hurting their business.
Not really. They have around 15 publishers they work with, but most of their stuff only comes from a few. The Project-H admin said they could do Comic LO or Girls for M if they wanted since they have a lot of stuff with Akane Shinsha, but thought there wouldn't be enough demand and it would be too much of a problem.
Their most published by far is from Takeshobo though.
Now that I have sat and thought about it, LO would be something they might put their greedy paws on.
They haven't exactly been shy with the henreader liscence. They are selling a skateboard with lolli on it, so they aren't that afraid apparently.
God I hope that doesn't happen. Having new uncensored work is great but it doesn't justify destroying a browsable backlog of years.
I hope nobody touches things like Comic LO, because then it's probably just a matter of time a mainstream outlet picks up on it and outrage follows. Worst case, the backlash reaches Japan and the JP government gets ideas that it needs to fix things to protect its image abroad. Even Amazon JP doesn't sell it.
Literally the post before you proves Jacob is full of shit.
>destroying a browsable backlog of years.
No reason that would happen. Fakku aren't doing anything about raws or scanlations, and based on how everyone reacted to it last time, I wouldn't be surprised if they would urge the publisher not to go with the scorched earth approach against pirates.
Although there's always a very real chance that the publisher itself wants to do this, and there's the risk of public outcry.
I don't know. Panda already have banners on raws and scanlated versions linking to official releases if there is one:
Imagine every new LO upload having a Fakku banner on top. If the option is removing it all, that's a much better alternative for pirates, and it only benefits Fakku. Win-win.
Why is Jewcob allowed to start these shit threads all the time dude just go away no one likes you here you fucking shill lord.
You really don't get how marketing works, do you? It doesn't matter if we are criticizing Fakku or not. As long as we're talking about it, Jewcob is making money.
For every thread created, for every few dozen anons who bash Fakku, there will be at least one irredeemable fuckit who'll end up paying for their subscription.
And while we're at it, someone dumped all of their unlicensed content on nyaa. 60GB across two torrents.
Wouldn't working with the three they already have, then going back and translating older issues when they run out of material be a much more sensible thing to do? I don't mind Wani takedowns because Wani itself is trigger-happy with them, but if nearly nobody else cares then why poke their beehives?
And fuck off with this idea too, given how hungry Jacob is at going after anyone who dares post his subscription stuff I can't see why he would try to let pirates have anything at all.
>we dont care about piracy nor are we going to try and fight it
>actively go out of their way to fight it and dmca shit
How hard can you shill before you become incapable of seeing blatant lying
>Manga translations by scanlators in the last 4 months: ~550 chapters
>Manga translations by Fakku in the last 4 months: ~350
They're clearly not doing anything the least bit beneficial to hentai.
If you weren't in denial, it would take you two seconds to look up the number of translated manga on panda since the middle of September and find 550-570 galleries.
Fakku uploaded 300-310 magazine chapters and ~70 book chapters in the same period.

>They're clearly not doing anything the least bit beneficial to hentai.
Translating 350 more on top of the 550 chapters isn't a bit beneficial? And not to mention they're all the original scans completely uncensored. Of course they might not be able to translate as many things as scanlators when you're against MANY scanlations groups who easily has scans of hentai in their hands compared to a legal business.
You think all of them will get the chance to be translated? How long will it even take for all 350 Wani chapters to be translated? You really think all scanlations groups will all of a sudden focus on all Wani content? They're not even uncensored either.

I think that guy you replied to was being sarcastic.
Fakku knew that keeping scanlations will prevent them from working with more artists in the future so, they removed it. If what you said is such a big deal. Why didn't Fakku think that having their business built on scanlations will affect them working with more artists? It's because they know its not a big deal and its not.
Once they start working with artists whose work they kept till the removal of scanlations will just prove you wrong that the artists themselves don't even see it as a big deal.
That a different topic. Someone providing close to 40% of all English manga is not a cancer.
A fraction at best. Hotmilk is one of the more popular magazines behind the Wani ones, and that have 237 galleries. Not in the last 4 months, but the last 8 years.
Those Wani translations also would've come at the expense of those other 550 chapters. Scanlators didn't stop, they just moved to something else. 550+0 is not a better deal than 550+350.
They won't and can't fucking touch LO, that's for sure.
If ex got purge again just move on to another site, it's not like I don't already torrent my wani mangas already or a single chapter from nip sites.
Now that you mentioned it, I do remember they bringing in henreader in that one event they had in some con.
They can't popularize 2Dloli without attracting serious heat, in the off-chance that they are successful, it would probably be the only good thing to come out of the entire Fakku ordeal.
Isn't this a good thing? I mean more mangas are translated and if you want it for free then other sites will have it within minutes.
though personally I never found fakku's selection very good either way.
As of now, there are no reliable rips of FAKKU material, probably combination of an annoying rip protection that takes some skill/work to circumvent and Jacob being a zealot when it comes to DMCAing the rips.
FAKKU has pretty much always been the JList of hentai aggregators, for people too dumb to know any better.
Just send an outraged email to fox or some other news site, how an American company based in Portland is distributing child pornography.
>there are no reliable rips of FAKKU material
Wrong. There are several. Just because you don't know about them doesn't mean they don't exist. They aren't posted on 4chan really because then they would come under attack.
I'm just saying it's not as straight forward as a right click. You can have a script to reassemble the jpg file and save it as a png.
I know of the HorribleScans dump but that only covers until November, cafe is sporadic (don't worry, Jacob already DMCAd google to try and remove it) and there's tsumino.
None of them have a rip of Mitiking's Rakshasi Editor Satou-san for example. For me reliable is new chapters consistently show up in uner a day.
I was thinking of reliable as "it hasn't been taken down yet and doesn't seem like it will be".
I think "consistent" would have been a better choice.
Tsumino latest rip was #288. Rakshasi Editor Satou-san is #300.
I don't think Tsumino is going to have more than they already have.
Now it's another wait for another rip.
It's one of the admins who ripped all the stuff and he did it more or less automatically with a script. He's also the guy responsible for programming the site and implementing new features. They already promised they would rip more, including the Shota / Loli / Incest chapters they missed the first time around.
