Fakku's Urotsukidoji - Legend of the Overfiend Kickstarter Launches

posted on by Karen Ressler
Company seeks US$86,000 to publish full hentai manga in English

Hentai website Fakku launched its Kickstarter campaign to publish a remastered edition of Toshio Maeda's Urotsukidoji (Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend) manga in English on Sunday.

The project's initial goal of US$47,000 will fund print and digital editions of the manga's first 300-page volume. Stretch goals at US$60,000, US$73,000, and US$86,000 will fund the subsequent volumes.

The remastered edition of Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend will include new chapters that were originally cut from previous English versions of the manga. Fakku founder Jacob Grady also mentioned that Maeda has offered to draw new artwork for scenes that were censored in Japan "if we meet our milestones."

The physical volume will have a dust jacket, inner cover, and color pages.

The campaign will be the first part of a collaboration between Fakku and Maeda to publish the latter's entire collection of hentai manga in English. Other manga included in the project include: La Blue Girl, Demon Beast Invasion, and Adventure Kid. Fakku will post more details soon.

WANIMAGAZINE Co., Ltd. originally published Urotsukidoji's six volumes from 1986 to 1987, and CPM Manga published an English version from 2002 to 2003.

The manga received an anime adaptation and several sequels. Critical Mass Video released Urotsukidoji: New Saga, a remake of the original anime adaptation, on DVD in 2011.

Fakku published Okama's Hanafuda erotic manga in February. The company entered a partnership with Wanimagazine last year and published Renai Sample by Homunculus, PuniKano by Pyon­-Kti, Welcome to Tokoharu Apartments by Gunma Kisaragi, Alluring Woman by Cuvie, and Peachy-Butt Girls (The Pretty Peach Hip) by Bosshi.
