    kitty media partnership, immoral sisters press release

    july 22nd, 2011

    fakku (http://www.fakku.net), the largest english speaking hentai website in the united states, is proud to announce a licensing deal with kitty media. The agreement, announced today, will give fakku the rights to stream select kitty media adult titles in the united states and canada, beginning with immoral sisters. The titles will be freely available on fakku in dvd quality streaming with both japanese / english audio, and english subtitles.

    This marks the first time a production company like kitty media has worked with an open website such as fakku. Fakku will be staggering the release of the first three episodes over the next few days with episode one going live on july 22nd, episode two going live on july 23rd, and episode three going live on july 24th.

    Immoral sisters (known as ai shimai in japan), is an eroge series published by elf corporation that has been made into a series of hentai anime released by pink pineapple. In the united states it has received somewhat of a cult fanbase due to its high quality animation and netorare themes.

    Fakku founder jacob grady said "i am incredibly excited to work with a company like kitty media. I have been a fan of their work for a long time and they are responsible for bringing some of the best titles from japan to the united states. It is an honor to work with them and i am excited to explore even more possibilities going forward."??

    Re: [18+] Kitty Media & FAKKU form partnership to stream select adult titles

    That's interesting... Is FAKKU going the way of Crunchyroll? IIRC, Fakku carries scans and scanlations of manga/doujinshi (and more? /me clicks on fakku link. Uh, yeah, non-licensed h-anime, too); will they be dropping that, or is there going to be legit distribution alongside non-legit stuff?

    After taking a quick look, it seems that they'll be following the legal & illegal path. Is Kitty trying to reform the website? Hmm... Is Fakku distributing other Pink Pineapple titles without a license?

    I wonder how this will go. ^^;

      John's a savvy businessman, so I also wonder about the idea of having legit, legally-licensed titles on a site full of pirated material. I don't know anything about Fakku, so I don't know how likely it is that any sort of "reformation" is at hand. Maybe MB's just going to do the old "oh, we weren't aware of that" dodge if the licensors find out? I don't know why they'd take that risk.

        Definitely an announcement that initially hits like a sledgehammer, but after a bit of thought, this probably works-out pretty well for both entities.

        MB's never shown much interest in maintaining a decent web presence, while as FAKKU's all about digital distribution (illegal as it generally may be). Through the partnership, MB gets a cost-effective avenue to market their eroanime, and FAKKU can make some easy cash off a streaming service they already offer. With FAKKU, MB would also be advertising directly to the community that might buy a eroanime DVD or digital download, which would be less of a guarantee had these files been hosted on some random adult-film site.

        As for the fanscans and subs, FAKKU deals in unlicensed anime, manga, and doujinshi, which keeps them somewhat under the radar. If the site ever did come under fire from some Japanese rights holders, I'd imagine MB could just pull their material, without having to worry about any liability issues.

          I attended a panel run by the Fakku guys a few months back (though said panel wasn't explicitly about Fakku). They had mentioned that they were talking with distributors to legally stream titles in the future, but the details weren't anything they could share at the time... I'm curious if this was the extent of it, or if they're trying to license titles themselves through Japan as well?

          In any case, Kitty's about the last hentai distributor standing... this instinctively makes me selfishly want to see them survive, by hook or (in this case) crook.

            Hentai Anime is Coming to FAKKU!

            Today I am proud to announce that FAKKU has acquired Kitty Media, the most established hentai anime publisher the United States.

            You can find our official press release here, but probably the most important thing to say is...

            HENTAI ANIME IS COMING TO FAKKU!

            Kitty Media has published numerous noteworthy anime titles such as Bible Black, Legend of the Overfiend, Another Lady Innocent, and many more. Although not all of their licenses are still active, we plan to do our best to revive their library of content and make it available on FAKKU. With Kitty Media's established position as the leader in uncensored hentai anime, their library of content and industry experience will help bring FAKKU to the next level.

            I grew up watching Kitty Media releases and I have no doubt that we will do incredible things with the brand.

            We believe consumers are willing and wanting to support the industry, they just haven't been given the opportunity through the existing distribution models. That's something we are going to start developing for the future.

            I'll be posting more details soon, but for now here are some preview screenshots from our library of content!

            PRESS​ ​RELEASE

            For​ ​Immediate​ ​Release
            FAKKU​ ​ACQUIRES​ ​HENTAI​ ​ANIME​ ​PUBLISHER​ ​KITTY​ ​MEDIA

            Portland, Oregon
            November 27, 2017

            FAKKU, LLC (FAKKU), the premiere source for eromanga in English, announces the acquisition
            of adult anime publisher KITTY MEDIA. By combining two of the more prominent brands in
            Japanese eros, FAKKU's acquisition of Kitty Media Japanese animation strengthens their
            position as the primary source for licensed "hentai" content on the web.

            Established in 1997, as an imprint of New Jersey-based Media Blasters, Kitty Media has
            distributed and published numerous noteworthy anime titles such as Bible​ ​Black​, Another
            Lady​ ​Innocent​, and Urotsukidoji:​ ​Legend​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Overfiend​. And has maintained an active
            catalog that includes popular titles such as KITE​, Aki​ ​Sora​, La​ ​Blue​ ​Girl​, and Spaceship​ ​Agga
            Rutter​.

            FAKKU President Jacob Grady said, "With Kitty Media's established position as the leader in
            uncensored hentai anime, their library of content and industry experience will help bring FAKKU
            to the next level. I grew up watching Kitty Media releases and I have no doubt that we will do
            some incredible things with the brand." Physical distribution of titles will continue to be
            maintained by Media Blasters; their most recent release being Vampire​ ​Vixen​ (Itadaki! Seieki).

            FAKKU plans to make Kitty Media titles available to users through their existing online
            subscription service at no additional cost. Additionally FAKKU will offer DRM-free digital
            purchases of each title. "We believe consumers are willing and wanting to support the industry,
            they just haven't been given the opportunity through the existing distribution models," added Mr.
            Grady. "That's something we are going to start developing for the future."

              I think this statement alone wins the announcement prize.
