I'm all for a good old fashioned lynch mob, but you are all pretty stupid if you don't think the japs knew about sadpanda.
We need to create a new panda, one that doesn't allow Japanese to access it. It's that simple.
Because Japan can't into proxy, amirite?
>It's that simple.
funny because thats what my competitor saying, and look where they are now
China will kill you and your parents and your family and your friends and your friends' friends and your neighbors and your pet and you're waifu if they see Mao on what you're fapping. Taiwan won't.
>tfw the guys from mikocon are still uploading stuff to exhentai
please stop, it hurts. wait until all is over
By then Japan would be nothing of what it is like today. Their demographic distribution is fucked up. Nobody is breeding and everyone is old as fuck. In fact, it is predicted that Japan's population is supposed to half in 50 years.
You will be an oldfag of your own lonely era.
I can't believe we're the most perverted american country after USA and that we're on the top 10..
>3rd place Thailand
Thailand is fucking nuts man.
Yeah, I'm sure there are a few dozen millionaires browsing /a/ right now that will chip in.
I've got like $140k in the bank, so we'll be able to afford less than half of a 2-5 year license to a minor publication if I decide to ruin my life so some depraved weebs can get their rocks off and show jewcob who's boss.
Fakku confirmed to be full of hambeast, casuals and huehues with premature ejaculation and 9 page views and 8 minutes average per nut
Sadpanda is 16 minute average and 67 page views
Keep eating shit Fakkudrones
We're coming a full circle.
Nips ip ban everyone outside and now we are talking about ip banning them.
Also, this might help, but only and only if the jap users were the issue, and if they for some reason didn't give a shit about everyone else.
That's a big "if".
Thanks, man. That means a lot to me, really.
Wouldn't you be able to put a password on your websites front page and use a forgot password link to send the password to any email address. This way if you can claim that the server is for private file hosting for yourself and other people must have hacked it.
Is there any way to find out what gallery a link goes to other than posting it on 4chan so exlinks will parse it? I don't want to resort to spamming a thread just so I can see which issues of kairakuten/x-eros I need to download.

>We need to create a new panda, one that doesn't allow Japanese to access it. It's that simple.
It's like you killing the primary source of food that's feeding off Exhentai since it was born. Stop pretending to be Jacob.
>We need to create a new panda, one that doesn't allow Japanese to access it. It's that simple.
No. Fakku shills will probably find it and Jewcob will tell Wani.
We have to shut down Fakku before making a Sadpanda with more restrictions. Restrictions so bad it's retarded-Fakku-shill-proof.
IP restrictions too. Ban Japanese IP. Normalfag office workers can't into computers. Japanese ones won't be any different.
It's not simple, it will be hard. But at least all the free stuff we hoarded over the years will be kept safe.
What? You want something to happen, you need the resources to make it happen.
If you lack the resources, it ain't gonna fucking happen.
Don't get angry at me, that is how the world works.
Sadpanda users are also more educated.
For the record, for anyone who actually feels like knowing how this shit ACTUALLY started:
>The recent problems were due to the chinese aggregator site Comic-Han killing sales of various works by immediately scanning and putting out both clean and watermarked versions. The non-watermarked versions you had to either pay them or be part of their trusted set of people. The scans appeared so fast that they could appear online in the month before the magazines release date. Thus, it is possible that some retailers didn't even have the official books or magazines before scans were already out.
>C&D to mainland china don't do any good as their government protects them. Wani and Kairakuten were disgusted and lashed out at the sites that were in range of their claws. It's too bad the uneasy truce between wani/kairu and the scanlators was broken due to Comic-Han wrecking sales by releasing so soon. It makes sense to give these companies some breathing room to sell the magazines so that they can keep paying authors. Comic Megastore is already out of business.
This traces back to the ancient and lost age of... March 2014. That's when the DMCAs started flying like crazy and the "secret club" became necessary. So ignore any fucktard that claims Wani had sent the DMCAs "years ago" and then did nothing until just now. You're simply seeing a company taking their time to verify if their notified suspects complied with the notices.
>>The recent problems were due to the chinese aggregator site Comic-Han killing sales of various works by immediately scanning and putting out both clean and watermarked versions.
Has never been proven.
>FAKKU books won't have any DRM in digital downloads. The contract allows them to do that, and that's what FAKKU is going to do.
Can someone explain.
The first part, i get that there is no DRM
While the rest contradicts that hinting at DRM being included in the contract and implemented.
That and i'm sleep-deprived from archiving
Wani owns the IPs, Fakku only has online/physical publishing rights.
Really, Fakku acquiring the rights should not have changed anything except making it illegal to sell physical bootlegs. Jewcob said he doesn't care about other sites hosting online, it's Wani that has been issuing DMCA takedowns for the last few years.
Tenboro decided to listen because he thinks he can get into trouble now? He has never really seemed like he understands this stuff 100%.
>America, Australia and Italy
>How much do you think Jewcob has that he can afford shilling, but can't afford a no questions asked builder or a server that can handle a LOIC attack?
He's probably hoarding all the cash and just spends things when it's really necessary. he's probably the "as long as it still works" type of guy.
Look for Fakku's new server when the current one's all gone.
Which is odd considering how the past polls show M'sia/SG have been ranked closely when it comes to hentai website visitors in the past. I suppose all the millennium babies in my country have outnumbered Singapore's.
>Why did the chink do that anyway?
>"HEY GUYS, LOOK! EXCLUSIVE CONTENT SUPER EARLY! I'M AWESOME"
To be fair, the shitstorm actually began when people were posting Comic Han's releases on sadpanda, which is a hell of a lot easier to access than the chink's site was. The chink admin had been asking people to stop leaking the shit (that was the reason for the watremarks). That's what drew the most attention.
Panda should be blocked in Indonesia, too, but here I am.
Maybe this is a surprising fact for you first world country citizens, but our IP blocks are piss-easy to bypass. Just one fucking google search will get you there, unless you're dumb enough to use a national ISP instead of a private one. And even if you do, they don't necessarily ban out panda.
Besides, the denial that Japanese aren't the majority of visitors don't make sense. It assumes that, somehow, the Japanese don't frequent English websites and imageboards. Please. We have fucking Brazilians and South Africans fapping with us here.
>Fakku acquiring the rights should not have changed anything except making it illegal to sell physical bootlegs.
have a western distributor make their DMCA's far more likely to be upheld in court
>While the rest contradicts that hinting at DRM being included in the contract and implemented.
Read more carefully. The contract allows them to sell DRM-free, so they're doing that.
keep the good work oh great 'muslim' country
>my face when i saved everything from all the artists i give a shit about in advance and torrented the few things i needed to last night
i was prepared for the happening
suck my monster dick you dirty rat mother fuckers

This isn't surprising. The anti-FB and anti-Reddit is just a vocal minority/echo chamber of people that just say they hate Reddit to fit in. anti-FB is only present in /a/, /g/ and similar or associated boards from what I've seen.
>mfw his site started as a place to find illegally obtained doujins and I will now continue to obtain the doujins he has aquired legal rights to for free
he has no reason to bitch either because he started out on the dark side to begin with.
the irony is delicious.
Indonesian masterrace here.
Stop being elitist.
So is it safe to say Jacob @ fakku is off the hook and not to blame for today's exhentai purgine?
When I browsed /a/ this morning lots of /a/nons were endlessly bitching Jacob and his heritage.
Why do some people thing that this Wani/Fakku deal with go down in flames? Project-H has been around for a couple years, it's doing alright isn't it?
He could have promised them free porn secretly. Or he deemed it is necessary to pay them with shekels.
Fact is I don't think Fakku users would spend time in /a/ seeing as /a/ hates Fakku.
Pic related is how much a paperback is.
How much is Jewcob selling it? $17-$30 dollars?
>japan uses sadpanda to pirate doujinshi and H-manga they don't want to pay for
Well here's our problem. Sadpanda is in the shitter because it's being used for actual piracy by the japs
The horsefucker ought to just block japanese IPs. There's really no problem, then.
>Panda should be blocked in china.
We would lose 50% of the content on the site
35% being chinese scanlations along with all the other languages, 15% being Chinese available only (no eng/jap raw)
>30 bux shrink wrapped (3000 yen)
?? = used
I'm laughing. This is the most amazing bitchfit I've seen in a while. I mean I'm mildly invconvenienced, there was a lot of good stuff taken, but there's still plenty enough for me to get by until it's all easily accessible again.
Cute. Where is that being printed? Or are you saying that there's no price difference between local products and importing from fucking Japan while not even having a reseller contract?
>Sadpanda is in the shitter because it's being used for actual piracy by the japs
Because what westerners are doing isn't piracy right? Besides, blocking jap IP's would mean many raws would no longer be uploaded to e-hentai, which means even less porn.
We wouldn't lose it per se, it just wouldn't be on sadpanda.
We could still get it somehow and then make it available there.
It would make the flow of scanlation > translation slower but if it made the site safer, it could be worth it.
Serious question: Why do people bother trying to defend Jacob and his lying greedy shifty ways? I don't believe they're paid shills; that's just silly. I wish I understood why they go to all this effort to bother defending this idiot though.
>Because what westerners are doing isn't piracy right?
Not like the nips want to sell to us dirty gaijins, and no, no one wants to be fucked in ass by Jacob to buy them legitimately.
But the dedicated aren't the only ones uploading raws, and many of them are doing it for other japs not just westerners, blocking jap ips on e-hentai will kill alot of translation.
>have a western distributor make their DMCA's far more likely to be upheld in court
What the fuck is "western"? Fakku is set in the US, Sadpanda is hosted in the fucking Netherlands. You think there's such a thing as international copyright? Netherlands usually laughs off DMCAs. Ponyfaggot is being an idiot.
Why do retards without a lick of understanding of copyright law seem so eager to talk about it?
It's printed in the US, but why does that matter? Fakku books will be printed in US too. And Jewcob will be buying Japanese scans? Really? He just bought the license to translate and localize it, same with the guys who localized earlier manga.
Face it. Jewcob is being a fucking jew.
>and I'll tell you again, they're just as cheap new generally
and you're not counting the extra cost of exporting goods out of Japan in general and the stuff involving the what I will call the spaghetti process (reading moon & paying to open japanese proxy shipping account)
I just noticed the author heriyama is on the fakku list. I really liked this doujin done by him here http://exhentai.org/g/625688/dc091f7eea/
do you guys know of any other english translated works of his that have since been removed?
>Why do retards without a lick of understanding of copyright law seem so eager to talk about it?
The irony here is palpable. Are you so fucking retarded that you honestly think the DMCA is the one and ONLY copyright law in existence?
Or Tenboro could grow some nuts and stop caving to C&D notices, that's shit would never make it to court, especially since the server isn't hosted in the US.
Whether the nips want to sell or not is not the issue, we're still all stealing our porn, nothing wrong with admitting it.
>and I'll tell you again, they're just as cheap new generally
Give me a link to an importer selling new doujins brought from japan at 600 fucking yen.
You're seriously claiming import fees aren't a thing? Especially when the import is not being done through an actual business, but by hand?
You do realize that almost everything done to kill piracy actually ended up making it more prevalent.
If you were to take games for example, the best solution currently is to be either online or have more online-necessary features but then not everyone agrees on that.
It was not, which seems to indicate that they aren't blanket removing everything related to authors from the list. I have it saved anyway, I've been downloading chinese cartoon porn for nearly 24 hours straight. Though the answer to why I have been downloading chinese cartoon porn for 24 hours straight still eludes me.
>It's printed in the US, but why does that matter? Fakku books will be printed in US too.
You know, this is sad.
I can tell by your post that you're not a troll. You're just a fucking retard who saw other people spew shit and took at face value.
That's not one of Fakku's Books you fucking moron. They've yet to release a single goddamn fucking thing, which you'd know if you actually looked for information before regurgitating bullshit from troll like the ignorant sheep that you are.
Fakku's store has always been a ramshackle joke that consists of sending a guy to japan to pick up shit, bring it back, and resell it here. That is a ridiculously fucking different thing from actually having a contract to resell their stuff as actual distributors. What they've done thus far is buy stuff as final consumers and then resell it, which is a hell of a lot more expensive than having a proper distributor's infrastructure. Nevermind if they actually find a way to print the shit here.
But you are too dumb to even think about this. So even though Fakku Books aren't even a thing yet, you somehow assume that what has been repeatedly stated to not be related to that is an example of it and that it was printed here. Because thinking and making sure you know stuff is too hard, apparently.
Oh, but that is irrelevant. Its still fucking purged.
>He doesn't need to ship shit, you mongloid. Wani hands him the digitals, and translators are cheap anyways.
The problem is that you morons have no clue what that screenshot is even from. Fakku hasn't released a goddamn thing form their deal with Wani yet.
>It's printed in the US, but why does that matter?
Are you serious?
>Fakku books will be printed in US too
Yes. Will be. Future tense. This is not one of those. What is your point?
>Loli getting slapped and hidden under the carpet, for the Tokyo Olympics
>Comic Megastore dying, because of Yakuza and corrupted officials
>All other hentai anthologies cranked up the censorship to full retarded mode, in fear for being next on the list
>Manga traders closing
>Sad panda forced to remove thousands of galleries
The last two years have been sad yeas for the anime, manga, ero manga lovers.
You're an idiot. Of course that wasn't a Fakku book. It's one of mine I bought brand new long ago.
I was comparing paperbacks with Fakku's price, which was more than how much paperback is sold in Canada.
I admit that I was never the brightest individual.
>mfw I downloaded 78 torrents of doujinshi last night
>Trust me, there is hope in the darkness.
I think i already see it.
I just woke up /a/.
the entire sad panda thing was just a misunderstanding right? it's all fixed up and everythings back to normal and restored? I'm gonna make breakfast before I check, but I won't need to becasue I get back you're going to tell me it's all good, right?
>You're an idiot. Of course that wasn't a Fakku book.
Nor is the one you're comparing it to, you fucking retard.
Again, I can tell you're not trolling. You're just a goddamn moron who insists on arguing without even bothering to check the facts. THIS >>111051186 is what you're comparing it to, and you think that's part of the deal with Wani.
It's not, but you're too dumb to actually make sure you know what you're arguing about. That's just something that's ALREADY BEING SOLD RIGHT NOW through the Fakku store as a reselling product. That means they sent a guy there to pick up a bunch of shit and bring them back.
Why am I repeating the same shit I just told you? Learn to read.
>Jacob has already put the price at 20.00$ a book that's a huge markup
What "Book"? Single doujins or tankoubon? For the latter, that's a pretty fucking great price, especially if it's imported.
Stop saying they're deleted. Maybe for all intents and purposes to the public that word applies, but it's more like those galleries are hibernating.
Considering shit like the good ol shit that cross board shitposters wouldn't know about (like the chinks fucking shit up back in March) keeps being called shilling, maybe it's time to drop the juewes did it shit.
Or not, shitposters never let facts stop them.
Why did you get on line and ask him if he's cool with his hypocrisy? And don't let him mince words and call you a hypocrite for wanting free porn, some hypocrisies are stronger than others.
When archiving, Is better to keep them compressed or in folders?
How do you know? Do you have any idea how costly it is to set up a printing business? Plenty of companies in other countries need to subcontract printing companies. The infrastructure to run a business like this isn't cheap, and it seems ridiculous to believe Fakku would have the money to set it up so easily.
It'd make a hell of a lot more sense to leave the printing to others and just act as distributors.
>you think that's part of the deal with Wani.
>Fakku shill delusional enough to think Jacob will change prices.
I'll bite if he does. Until then I think his jewish blood is enough to make him a greedy fuck.
I say that the right price for a single chapter/work/doujinshii is around $1.5 since a translated tank/volume is $9.99 US/$14.99 Canada.
Why don't we just pay for horsefucker to move to Russia?
Well, at the very least you're self aware to completely switch arguments instead of carrying on with one that just made you look like a complete moron. It's a start, I suppose.
That's what pisses me off the most, if he wasn't such a pussy exhentai would be more than enough, since it was to satisfy advertisers at first. C&D's mean fuck all legally, Tenboro's just a huge coward.
>Everything on the FAKKU store right now is completely unrelated to FAKKU Books, they are all just items imported from Japan. You're comparing the FAKKU store to a Japanese website which is not a good comparison. There are obviously a lot of costs associated with bringing those items over to the United States that aren't obvious (we have to fly to Japan for one). The majority of the doujins on the store were purchased 2 years ago when the exchange rate was a lot worse. We also bag and board everything, cover the costs of shipping and handling, and the costs associated with bringing them back and going through customs. On top of all that we need to make a profit so it's worth doing in the first place (around 10 - 15%), there is a lot involved in that price point.
>Search chouzuki maryou
>fat asian cosplay bitch
>Do you have any idea how costly it is to set up a printing business
For a someone planning to make a major publication, very difficult, since you may have to print 100's of thousands of copies a week/month, but for this operation all they would need is a cheap printer(by cheap I mean a few hundred bucks), their target demographic is so ridiculously small it doesn't make sense not to just print it in house.
>There are obviously a lot of costs associated with bringing those items over to the United States that aren't obvious (we have to fly to Japan for one)
That makes a lot of sense actually. It's no wonder the prices are high. He doesn't know you can have things shipped to you without picking them up in person.
>The one with the prices right now at Fakku.
Your stupidity is astounding. See >>111052219 >>111052451
Try to follow >>111052485's example and at least flip flop to some other brand of bullshit. This one just makes you look dumb.
>Because others have done it before in the US and still sell paperback for $10?
Of course. Because all business have the same cash for infrastructures when they are first set up. Spinoffs of motherfucking Hachete Book Group, shitty internet sites, it's all the same, isn't it?
Does anyone have the link for the image ripper for ex?
I remember a while back some anon posted a link to it, but I lost it. It's better than just using the archive and torrents, I guess.
Deleted my pic as my creation as already been posted here
In response to Jacob's crying about it (>>111052451), he's absolutely bullshitting us. His argument practically boils down to "I BOUGHT THEM AT A LOT OF COST TO MYSELF AND I WANT TO MAKE BIG DOLLARS SO I'M TACKING ON MARKUPS" when you could get the doujin in question posted for half what he's selling it for on the worst of days.
Fucking greedy bastard.
Good job you made an inconsequential response that adds nothing. Yes we know that DMCA is American law, you fucking dunce. That's the entire point of what he said, and pointing out WORLDWIDE distrib rights are what matter, not crying about DMCA
Jacob DID make a deal with wani but /a/non decided to be retards this morning (my time zone) and bitch on Jacob and attack his heritage because of "the happening" on exhentai today
The REAL reason for "the happening" on exhentai dates back to this
>Because all business have the same cash for infrastructures when they are first set up.
It will depend on your target demograph yes.
But he still should have forseen that the target will be so small that it won't be profitable unless he sells the books either with a high price or in such a way that he can attract a wider audience.
And as far as I can see, no one in the US will be dumb enough to reveal that they fap to 2D children/2D women these days.
For a TANK. Yes, yes it's fine, but that's before postage and packaging, considering that Jacob is adding his share of extra fees for "Handling" and other bs.
But that's not what's being sold right now, and we have no reason to believe any of his promises.
>Project-H is quiet and only does super vanilla safe stuff.
They're starting to branch out a bit. And I imagine that Fakku will do super vanilla for awhile as well. Don't get me wrong, I'm hoping that the deal between Fakku and Wani goes down in flames but I don't really buy the "They won't sell a lot so it'll end in failure" argument.
He called her that because she has a nice soft face and not a manjaw like most hollywood sluts.
To top it off the guy saying this shit was a literal Jew who works for Kotaku.
We can't do anything, man.
FAKKU is just reselling the item, in the same manner that many people resell doujinshi via E-bay.
What's horrible with that is the super high markup. But even then, that makes sense if you consider (actual doujin price+shipping+tax paid earlier+storage).
Which is why I don't get why the fuck people would even buy from FAKKU.
>Don't some of those artists have stuff normalfags wouldn't touch?
Like henreader or kinku? Yes. I always doubt that Jewcob will ever print loli because he'll be aiming to attract more people.
Again, you are HORRENDOUSLY underestimating the cost of printing.
You don't invest MORE when you know the revenue will be smaller. That's fucking retarded. Importing and selling the product a few books higher is definitely a far more reasonable business practice than shelling down a rape-you-in-the-ass-with-debt amount of cash to set up a printing business for the sake of a slightly smaller pricetag.
Yes, selling for less is generally correlated with selling more, but unless that "more" is significant enough, the cost of your own printing infrastructure is retarded.
It's like asking every site everywhere to have their own datacenter.
>won't he not publish like half of the stuff he has the rights to
That's why anons have been up at arms against this whole venture to begin with. Not the paying for porn part (as some mistakenly think) as those will be ripped and available for downloads through glorious piracy.
>Yes, yes it's fine, but that's before postage and packaging,
Do you know that? How?
Your only source for prices is Daiz, and he seems to be talking final. Where is your source that this is before all that?
>But that's not what's being sold right now
Nothing related to the wani deal is being sold right now.
>Which is why I don't get why the fuck people would even buy from FAKKU.
Because of ignorance. Do you really expect Fakku users to know about toranoana/melon etc + proxy services?
At least a torrent for it is still up... I nearly started crying. That one >>111053253 . I thought the panda was gonna live through everything... but if Meme50 falls... What is safe?
Yes you shitlord. Real women have jaws like Jay Leno!
Don't forget that loli comes under child porn laws in most states in the US, and I'm pretty sure there are federal laws against owning that shit. I mean, if we can believe Jacob's promises that he'll print it, then we can expect a jail sentence for providing cheese pizza.
>What's business policy, investment and loans?
>Implying that debt is wrong when you can manage it
>"Look, you can only have a good business if you have absolutely zero debt! Believe me, I minored in Business at community college"
You don't need credit to send takedowns. If they took it to court it'd be an easy win, even without a western distributor.
No, but sending takedown requests is actually a courtesy. It's the alternative to an instant lawsuit.
Just use the archiver. The image viewer gives you resized JPEG. Also you'll occasionally get broken images if the [email protected] node is down.
[email protected] downloader might work, but it's slow as fuck.
Should be plenty of GP to archive everything. If someone is seriously going to make the effort to archive, I'll donate GP to you.
Taking out a huge loan in order to cut printing costs a little is a huge risk. It's more intelligent to price them slightly high and sell lower quantities, rather than be stuck with a huge stockpile of asian porn cartoons in a warehouse.
This works pretty terribly and it's slow. If you don't use an [email protected] proxy to view images, you're bound to get at least 5% images that don't load and then you need to manually do them. It's really not worth the trouble, trust me. Just get someone to donate some GP to you.
Dear God. You have no idea what you're talking about, don't you?
>when you can manage it
Precisely. If you know what kind of dosh is involved with setting a printing business, you'd know this is definitely not such a case. You said it yourself, the target demographic isn't that big. You don't fucking take out a loan if your business isn't likely to make that money back in a reasonable time.
You get your own infrastructure when said infrastructure is likely to make its money back. There needs to be a significant enough difference in the number of people that will buy a cheaper home-made product than the number that will buy the imported one. If the difference projected is not big enough, then taking such a loan would be moronic. You said it yourself, the target audience is not big to begin with here.
Well, they've been pricing anime BD at a very high level for a long time, and when asked why, the justification was that lowering the prices a little wouldn't increase sales enough to make up for the smaller margin.
>not him but is Fakku trying to become like Seven Seas but without owning printers?
Who said THAT? They're trying to become a publisher and distributor. Whether they reach the size needed for becoming big enough to have their own printing setup is another, very unlikely, story. There's a lot more audience for manga than there is for porn manga.
That's still a huge hassle over just buying it directly from a US seller, and having it ship from the USA instead of international shipping.
Of course, $30 for import doujin is retarded, but $20 tanks and such are fairly reasonable.
"I swear it won't be worth it in the long run if we're able to print variable amounts of the stock we need as and when we need it instead of trying to predict customer desire!" - A moron, aka you. Imports will always lead to unsold/slow-selling stock, producing too much is a problem only if you're a fucking idiot (yes, YOU), and print what you don't need and don't have orders for.
Also >HUGE LOAN
What about the other, significant revenue streams, considering the cost of the distrib rights, cost of stocking the store and running the site?
Or do you somehow know that they're running a really really tight budget somehow.
>you are all pretty stupid if you don't think the japs knew about sadpanda.
No shit, whenever I DL a torrent atleast a quarter are jap IPs. Same thing with nyaa torrents on games and porn. A lot of japs even rely on nyaa for eroge.
Ah shithole western vidya "journalists" and developers shitpost about shit they don't know jackshit about.
The only times I peer into its anus is when YET AGAIN another western developer or "Journo" shits the bed.
Not him but I heard being a publisher + owning printing commercial grade (in the US) = hella expensive.
I think fakku doesn't want to own & upkeep printers. Instead of owning printers to print english translated version they could just oursource that to printshops in California or Texas or even Northern Mexico to do the printing.
Hardly anyone owns their own presses. A lot of stuff gets printed in China nowadays too.
I think a print run of 5k+ makes economical sense, but then you have to ask yourself how big the market is.
A quarter? More like 90%. If you download a RAW on nyaa, or moonrune title from sukebei (which are usually just torrents from sadpanda), they'll be majority Japanese downloaders.
Just look at the completion count of an original Japanese doujin vs English translated version. Probably 10k JP vs. 2k English.
>You said it
No I fucking didn't, go read my post again.
Also, that's not true, they have retards slavering at them for sold out stocks of raw and translated shit that are all no where depleted at MUCH lower costs else where.
They're sitting on a fucking mountain of idiot's cash, and being in denial isn't going to change that.
I think it'd be extremely fucking retarded for them to buy a real printing setup to publish Chinese cartoon porn in the US. The market just isn't big enough for that. Of course they're going to outsource printing to a print shop.
Jay's jaw doesn't even compare to that.
Look, I've already explained this repeatedly. The infrastructure needed to setup your own printing business is REALLY FUCKING EXPENSIVE and seriously needs a huge increase in sales to justify it.
You're talking about the horrible danger of overstocking in the same sentence that you completely ignore the massive threat of a White Elephant infrastructure that will almost certainly not give you enough difference to makes it money back.
I've explained this too many times and you just don't seem to get it. Go on believing this if you want, but for the love of God, get an advisor if you ever set up any business of any kind because you're horribly bad at this.
>Are there people stupid enough to buy H-manga in the U.S?
That needs to change!
COMIKET in Japan's been around since the mid 80s selling lewd self published comics
we need that COMIKET environment & culture from Akiba in COMIC/ANIME CONS in Los Angeles, San Diego etc etc without the stigma!
All this talk proves that Jacob will probably bury himself into debt with this project.
By selling it with higher prices, he'll limit the number of buyers even more. By lowering the price and printing tons, he's expecting that the target audience is huge, which isn't the case. Finally the things he promised to print and outside influences will also affect that audience.
Jacob is fucked.
>Not him but I heard being a publisher + owning printing commercial grade (in the US) = hella expensive.
It's really expensive fucking everywhere. A tiny startup getting their own printing setup is suicide.
Oh jesus christ, THAT'S the issue? I was seriously hoping that >>111053928 wasn't THIS retarded to think that they'd go and get their own fucking printshop instead of getting shit outsourced.
How can you be that much of a fucking idiot? Is it the Business degree? Or are you just the special kind of empty skulled moron
Well, downloading the megapack right now, is there anything else I should store in my strange need to hoard data?
Good lord I have so much /k/ DIY stuff that I will never look at, it's silly
I'm still fapping away since I masturbate to guro not just loli and vanilla. However I'm still lurking /a/ to grab a hold of alternatives, because fuck hoarding, I don't have the patience for it.
So far I've gotten two good ones which I will not mention due to obvious reasons.
I'm >>111053928 and my point was the exact fucking opposite. I'm pointing out that the idea of Fakku getting their own printers as >>111053745, >>111053335 and so on are saying is unbelievably stupid.
It might be
and all the jonny labs stuff plus whatever I found on the board, and that one improvised explosives handbook.
The mega.co.nz link in the archives. The #F!d one
I've been downloading some stuff from that MEGA archive, but I noticed they are very scarce on a few authors despite a number of their works still being on Panda, is the MEGA archive only the stuff that has/will be deleted?
How about making a sadpanda based on the bitcoin blockchain?
The bitcoin network (not the currency) is imo a revolutionary idea that should be applied to piracy. How it'll work is every "miner" stores a copy of the blockchain. Everyone who shares on it will earn currency, miners who keep the network up will earn currency, if japanese publishers decide to upload to it they'll earn currency.
Only problem is the currency's worthless. But if we can make the currency exchangable for "real" bitcoins then it can be profitable for miners to keep the site operational.
I should really start going through the megapack since I have nothing to do now, but it just seems like too much to get through. Like picking up Naruto, Bleach, or to a lesser degree, Fairy Tail.
