ANNCast Episode 226: The Porn Ultimatum

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

Founder and owner of, Jacob Grady, stops by to discuss the one subject we've never broached on ANNCast: porn. FAKKU, a scanlation site for hentai doujinshi and manga, is going legitimate; we discuss that transition, porn's place in anime fandom and pop culture, and much more.

WARNING: although this discussion is largely in broad terms, it is still mostly NSFW. Parental discretion is advised.
