Jacob Grady, the owner of the hentai website Fakku, announced on Thursday that the website will publish digital and physical manga in English. Fakku entered a partnership with Japanese publisher Wanimagazine. According to Fakku, the partnership gives it worldwide English rights to publish books and magazines from Wanimagazine, including past and future releases. All manga published by Fakku will be uncensored.

The company's first four titles will be Renai Sample by Homunculus, TiTiKEi by ISHiKEi, PuniKano by Pyon­Kti, and Welcome to "Tokoharusou" (pictured left) by Gunma Kisaragi.

The titles will be available through the Fakku website's store soon, with additional titles to be announced in the coming weeks.

The website currently hosts user-submitted, translated manga scans. ANN contacted Grady about the status of the website's content now that it is entering the market as a publisher. Grady issued the following statement:

FAKKU has always been a community for fans of ero manga and doujinshi outside of Japan, and that won't change. The specifics of which content will remain on FAKKU is something we are actively discussing with the publishers involved. None of the uploaded content on FAKKU is related to this announcement; we will be doing our own releases of these titles. We've worked with the Japanese publishers for many years and they have always been supportive of growing a western audience, now that their work is going to be published outside of Japan it will be protected.

As fans we've never had the opportunity to support these companies and artists directly, but we are now in a position where we can.

Fakku will host a panel at this year's Anime Expo convention in Los Angeles.

Update: Typo fixed. Thanks, fuuma_monou
