Fakku (styled as FAKKU) is an English-language hentai website. The site attracts over 1 billion pageviews a month and over 9 million unique visitors.[1] Fakku has more than 500,000 registered users who have made over 3 million posts.[citation needed]

At its core, Fakku is an aggregator that provides users with adult manga and doujinshi from Japan. Originally the content was uploaded exclusively by the sites administrators but later these privileges were shared with the community, allowing for translators to have their work seen by a much larger audience.

Fakku and its creator Jacob Grady have a known relationship with Danny Choo, Japanese TV personality and host of Culture Japan. At Anime Expo 2010, 2011, and 2012 (in Los Angeles, CA) Jacob and Danny hosted community meetups that attracted large audiences of fans and users.[2][3][4]

History[edit]

Fakku was created in December 2006 by Jacob Grady while he was studying Computer Science in Massachusetts.[5] Fakku was developed under the codename "AAH" or "All About Hentai" (which later became the site's subtitle). Jacob originally used money from student loans to pay for server and bandwidth costs, but that quickly became unsustainable and shortly after its launch Fakku was forced to shut down. It was brought back up after user donations rescued the site in July 2007.

As of July 2011 Fakku entered into a streaming licensing deal with Kitty Media, a subsidiary of Media Blasters. The deal allows Fakku to stream select anime titles at its discretion, starting with Immoral Sisters.[6] Both the subtitled and dubbed editions of Immoral Sisters were made available to users of Fakku at no charge.[7]

On June 19, 2014, Fakku announced that it had entered into a partnership with Wanimagazine to publish its entire catalog of hentai manga in English.[8][9]

On December 11, 2015, Fakku announced plans to run a Kickstarter campaign to publish a remastered version of Toshio Maeda's Urotsukidōji: Legend of the Overfiend manga in English. The Kickstarter was to be the first step of a plan to publish all of Maeda's work in English, with La Blue Girl, Demon Beast Invasion, and Adventure Kid to come next.[10] The Kickstarter launched on June 19, 2016,[11] and concluded on July 19, 2016, having met its goal.[12]

On July 7, 2016, Fakku announced the acquisition of Shintaro Kago's ero guro manga Koi no Choujikuuhou and Yamamoto Arisa's non-hentai manga Aiko no Ma-chan.[13]
