Building Their Hentai Heaven – Project-H Licenses 20 New Books for Print

Project-H Licenses 20 New Hentai Titles

Digital Manga wasn’t at this weekend’s anime convention, Otakon, but they delivered a wallop of new licenses for their Project-H imprint all the same. Announced first via their Twitter account, this batch of new licenses includes twenty individual volumes.

Because that’s a lot of books, you can read the full list of titles and some info on them under the cut:

Breasts of Temptation – Yumisuke Kotoyoshi
(Unknown),  ($17.95/US, $19.99/CAN)

They also announced they’ve licensed the fourth volume of their currently on-going series, Velvet Kiss. This is the last volume of the series.

Because these books are all under their Project-H imprint, you can expect they’ll all have an 18+ rating as well. This is not entirely indicative of the content itself, which I’ve seen can merely be implication over explicit, but better safe than sorry to assume it’s all for mature readers only when chosen to be published in this particular line-up.

Honestly I’ve been really surprised how many titles have been licensed by Project-H since it launched back in July 2011. What really caught me off-guard is that they’re all licensed for print, unlike their bulk licensing of Digital Manga Guild titles which are digital only. Seeing as how boys’ love titles – which makes up the majority of their DMG releases – have always been the company’s real bread and butter, so to speak, it’s a little odd and a little disappointing that so many of their new BL titles will never see print.

Is hentai something they have a lot of faith will do well? Is it something simply too difficult to publish digitally so they’re opting for print? Or are they trying to build up a library of titles quick to rival their current BL offerings? Considering they hold the monopoly on Japanese-licensed hentai titles in North America today, that does make some sense. These are just some of the ponderings I’ve had I watch the titles just keep coming and coming. Of course I love seeing them still put so much focus on print titles, including a few new boys’ love books, but it does make me sad we don’t have this option with so many great books going solely through their DMG channels.

All the same, yay for the books we do get and I hope their currently released hentai titles have been selling well for them so far.
