Sorry, but not sorry ^^

Everything is in the title, but if you’re like me and you read titles only after one or two chapters of the posts, I may as well write it again: I’m sorry for the false hopes, but yesterday’s Fakku super torrent wasn’t genuine, it was an April’s fools joke for the first of the month :)
Not everything I wrote was false, a large part of my criticism was a shout from my very soul, the thought that if you can’t pay you should be forbidden to read strikes me as revolting and reason enough to browse certain other torrent sites I cannot mention.

I’ll be sorry for wrong and legit reasons.

– Sorry for wrong reasons: those of you who didn’t see it coming because for you it was still March 31st. Or because in your country there is no pranking on the first of April (or only tame lightweight pranking – I don’t see the point, for me pranking is either done with, metaphorically, a nuclear weapon, or there is no point at all). Doesn’t matter: not my problem :D

– Sorry for legit reasons: I screwed up something.
My plans were to (1) create a torrent for something absurdly huge, (2) start seeding it, but (3) have my utorrent client configured to stop emitting data after a hard cap of 100 MB.
This way, you guys would see a seeder with 100% of the content trying to seed it to you all, but you’d be only trading with each other the first 100 MB, a volume that I deem mostly harmless. While my own client would be “yep, I’ve got it for you guys, but nope, I’m not uploading, keep on believing I’m going to resume uploading any second, still”.
However, I don’t know why, even though I double-checked I ticked the proper configuration options, my utorrent kept on uploading past the 100 MB limit and I had to close the program around 400 MB of uploaded data. At this point, 400 MB just for the lulz, this became a cruel joke harming those with capped internet, I am truly sorry about that. Also, it stopped lying that there was 1 seeder with 100% of the data, which is a pity :twisted:

You can delete what you got of the torrent, it wasn’t actual stuff anyway.

I hope you had a nice day and read funny shit on the internet to make it a merry day, me, my favorite was this one from Torrentfreak :3

Side notes:
– my gigatorrent will come in the medium term, again. It freaking died twice because my hard disks have suicidal tendancies this year and I ragequit the second time (I didn’t even wanted to talk about it anymore, getting angry whenever the topic came up and refusing to talk), but as it’s been over one month and a half without a new dead disk I’m good to finish preparing it. I’ll need seedboxers again, but I’m sure it’ll work.
– Also, I’ll have to kick myself in the arse and remember to make a post about the good shops to buy English hentai around, fakku, 2d-Market and project-H, with links, opinions and all. Please, if you’ve got feedback regarding 2D-market and Project-H, contact me, I’m curious to compare what I think I know with other people’s experiences (like: do Project-H still offer ridicuously small 1500 px digital versions and are they still censored, or, what are the native resolution images for 2D-market and do they really not ship paper versions…)

Just from quick recollection, I’ve purchased a few items from Project-H / Emanga, that were uncensored: “Peachy Triangle (original title: Momoiro Triangle)” by Sabashi Renya, and “Hard Temptation (original title: Yuuwaku No Toshiue Apartment)” by Hoshino Ryuichi – BOTH of them UNCENSORED (I purchased PDF e-bok versions), and I’ll have to look it up to verify whether its uncensored but I did get all three volumes of “Makunouchi Deluxe” by Joji Manabe (all three volumes were one time available here but last time I tried for them, volume 3 could not D/L intact).

I’m passing through to confirm that “Makunouchi Deluxe” (the version I acquired from EManga) is (sigh) “white-out” censored. Still worth every penny.

On a hypothetical note, say everything does become licensed outside of the Japan, what would you do with this site?

I assume it is an inevitability that all the publisher companies will follow this lead, remember for better or worse, communism collapsed, so money is the driving factor for everything. With others seeing how a place like fakku who can start out by hosting other people’s scanlations becoming quite wealthy, that will be the path to follow, and it allows the Japanese publishers to finally get at free scanlations which has angered them for a long time.

I imagine the next step will simply be cutting out the middle men(Places like fakky, Project-H, etc) and just having translation crews a part of the Japanese companies hosting their own sites. When that occurs, that will pretty much seal the fate of 99% of free hentai. Crazy part is Japanese people can’t even see the uncensored versions from their own companies. The US left Japan in 1952, they could have changed their laws, wild considered the US is the porn capital by revenue now.

Could turn this into a review site, though I imagine once you no longer offer much, the viewer bases will probably shrink by a lot.

Just something to ponder, as that is most likely the future.

It’s not going to happen for a bunch of reasons:
1) It’s a lot of effort for smaller publishers, so US middlemen are actually useful.
2) There’s certain subjects that publishing companies won’t touch in the US for various reasons, but especially because US law has some really weird paradoxes. Even though the First Amendment is supposed to guarantee freedom of speech, it is still illegal to publish images of underage people engaged in perfectly legal sexual activity. That has a chilling effect on publishers because they don’t want to be involved in a protracted legal battle even if they ultimately win.
3) There is too much of a backlog, and too much being published for all of it to be published in the US. Look at what happened to Tokyopop. They had some really good titles that sold well, and were getting translations at rock-bottom prices, but then they started publishing so many titles that they were actually competing with themselves, to the point that some titles only sold a few hundred copies. That drove them into bankruptcy. Yes, there is a market for Hentai in the US, but it’s not large enough to support all of the titles that are available.

IF that should ever happen, maybe he could start (for want of a better word) a hentai-based fan-fiction site.

Most of the Project H digital downloads are 2400p – 2600p now. They are moving to a 2400p standard for the most part.

No, everything I’ve bought of late have been uncensored and they have stepped up the quality of their print versions. All the ones I’ve bought the year or so been acid free papers as far as new releases.

Eh it’s fine. Never really downloaded any of it and I pretty much was more fooled by Adult Swim showing the first episode of Rick and Morty season 3 ad nauseum.

As for your hard drives, SSD’s are becoming more affordable. I currently have a 500 gb ssd as my OS drive plus asset heavy games (and any online MP game as well) and it was very affordable. Only about $200 in america.

Damn I missed it! Still love you Oliver no matter what XD

Can’t wait for the new gigatorrent. I know the feeling of having a dead HDD. I had mine died back in 2013. Pissed as hell since there was some rare material there, but managed to recover most sources all these years.

Damn although you really got my hopes crushed it was a Good Prank, Though im just glad i didnt go too overboard before i found this out. Because i was already making space to fit this torrent deleting stuff but luckly decided to take it in parts as to not wait forever for some i didnt need. Glad i did it that way and found out before i just up and deleted too much stuff for no reason lol.

I have to say I’ve learned once for all. When I saw that the torrent had almost 200 Gb, I had to reorganize my hard drive and transferred several files (entire directories, actually) in order to have space.
Obviously, it was frustrating.In April the fool’s day I am the fool, I dare say.

Censored:

Love on the Job
Velvet Kiss (these two kind of pisses me off, because they’re god-tier vanilla.)
Goddess of the Glass
Extra Juicy
Knock me up
Embrace & Bloom
With a Dictionary and no Skirt

Uncensored:

Boing Boing
Aqua Bless
Vanilla Essence (basically all the Yamatogawa stuff, it seems, which is good, because that’s also god-tier vanilla.)
Cute Devil Girlfriend (2nd edition — not sure about the first.)
Shocking Pink!

That Aqua Bless was totally worth getting from Amazon.
