They got some stuff from Yamatogawa, excellent. More stuff from Johji Manabe is always good too.

Yamatogawa? HELL YEAH. His stuff is great. Witchcraft not on the list, though Sad

Gawd knows when we'll see this lot, though. Project H must have at least 30 unreleased titles on their schedule now, and they're putting out books at a rate of 1-2 a month at the moment.

Or they got them off the cheap and the titles were bundled. Which, is what happens a lot with a lot of 1-shot titles, they can get them in a batch because they're cheap.

You're likely not too far off, some of these are kind of old.

Still not bringing in the big hitters......

Also, decensoring the stuff must be a bitch to do.

Maybe they have access to the original pre-censored digital files (in some cases, anyway)?

I don't think those exist, not that I've heard anyway. As for heavy hitters, things that probably go more hardcore with bigger and more recent artists.

It certainly is to me. I've been buying all these just for the novelty of it. Official American localized hentai mangas are still so rare and new in print the market has not been saturated by any means. It also helps a lot that Amazon has been selling them all directly.

Whereas with traditional localized manga there is so much that I usually just buy used on the cheap <$5. Used copies of these hentai mangas are still very rare.

There's not as big as profit margin there, from people buying used.
