Things that make you go FAKKU!

Yesterday, hentai manga publisher FAKKU announced that they acquired Kitty Media. According to the press release, FAKKU will add titles from Kitty Media to their digital platform at no additional cost to subscribers. The publisher will also offer DRM-free digital purchases of each title, though pricing has yet to be announced.

The publisher confirmed that Itadaki! Seieki, Fuzzy Lips, Spaceship​ ​Agga Rutter​, Aki Sora, and KITE will make their way to FAKKU’s digital platform.

Media Blasters will continue to handle physical distribution of Kitty Media’s titles. Media Blasters will also ” ​will​ ​coordinate​ ​and​ ​extend licensing​ ​opportunities​ ​for​ ​new​ ​content​ ​to​ ​FAKKU.”

FAKKU president Jacob Brady commented on the acquisition, stating “With​ ​Kitty​ ​Media’s ​established​ ​position​ ​as​ ​the​ ​leader​ ​in uncensored​ ​hentai​ ​anime,​ ​their​ ​library​ ​of​ ​content​ ​and​ ​industry​ ​experience​ ​will​ ​help​ ​bring​ ​FAKKU to​ ​the​ ​next​ ​level.​ ​I​ ​grew​ ​up​ ​watching​ ​Kitty​ ​Media​ ​releases​ ​and​ ​I​ ​have​ ​no​ ​doubt​ ​that​ ​we​ ​will​ ​do some​ ​incredible​ ​things​ ​with​ ​the​ ​brand.”

Kitty Media is billed as the most established hentai distributor in the United States. The company has distributed numerous landmark adults-only titles in the west, including Bible Black, Urutsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend, and KITE

FAKKU originally launched as a site aimed at hosting user-submitted hentai manga translations. The company entered the publishing business in 2014, when they partnered with Japanese company Wanimagazine.

Editor’s Note: While we normally don’t cover hentai as a rule, this is one of those rare cases where this is a seismic shift in the hentai landscape. It’s too important to ignore.
