Hentai Publisher Fakku Looks Into Sales at Brick-and-Mortar Stores

posted on by Karen Ressler

Jacob Grady, founder of hentai manga website and publisher Fakku, told news website ICv2 in January that the company plans to begin selling books to brick-and-mortar retailers. "We are ready to begin selling to retailers immediately," Grady said. "It's something I'm starting to investigate now."

Fakku's website has a job listing for a "Marketing and Sales Coordinator" who will communicate with both online and brick-and-mortar retailers.

Fakku began as a website for hosting user-submitted translations of hentai manga, and it entered the digital and physical publishing business in 2014 through a partnership with Japanese publisher Wanimagazine. Fakku's website offers subscription-based access to digital manga, and the company has released 32 titles as physical books sold online.

Fakku also funded a release of Toshio Maeda's Urotsukidoji manga with Kickstarter, and released the first volume in December. Maeda appeared at an event in Portland, Oregon to coincide with the release. Fakku is planning 20 physical releases for 2017.
