Agree with the first two. Really good series. I've got the German volumes even though I can't read German as I wanted a hard copy and would gladly buy them again in English.

Are these uncensored? I recall some criticism before of some stuff still remaining censored

I think anyone looking for hentai will be very disappointed with Nana to Kaoru. DMP would find a larger audience in their regular DMP imprints, just like Yen Press and Sundome for example.

If you're referring to Velvet Kiss, I think that was non-graphic from the beginning. These have to be uncensored if they want to sell them. As for these four, not quite getting where I'd want them to be.

I think sex toys might be the only one uncensored, I've been checking the scans online, this is the only one that doesn't have the complete white blurbs compared to the dozens of other titles they have.

So sex toys will be a buy, and the others im just gonna be hit and miss, but im glad to support

NtK I think would fit in with the slice of life deal with a tinge of fetishism added to the mix. It explores a couples(?) discovery into sex, more specifically BDSM. Plus it's not in your face sex like other hentai, or in other cases where the girl(s) are ridiculously catonic submissive semen dumpsters.

Eroticism yes, sex no. BDSM =/= sex, especially here. Hence why it wouldn't fit a hentai imprint. The series has distinctly avoided sex altogether which is why it's still running after many volumes, it actually has a plot! Razz

BDSM = sex in the right context. I dunno how graphic we can argue about it before people begin to get iffy about it.

Well that's the thing, right. You'll notice that Project-H is also DMP's outlet for potentially controversial ecchi titles, even though it's not R-18 stuff (i.e. "hentai"). They did the same with that one trap manga, Classmate no Josou o Tetsudattara Kawai Sugite Furue ga Tomaranai Ken (whose title changed to simply My Cute Crossdresser) they released last month. It's a little ecchi, but that's about it.
Nana to Kaoru would be awesome. I could see it as likely, but they seem pretty hesitant to pick up ongoing series as far as the Project-H line goes. And for the time being, it is only possible for it to be distributed via that line. They label it as "hentai" based on the subject matter (what is talked about, implied, etc.), not exactly on what is drawn. I don't particularly like that approach either, but if that's what it takes to get this stuff's foot in the door to North America, so be it. Hopefully, in time, it will become standard label.
