Plot

The human race was once the dominant species on the planet... before the Titans emerged. Giant humanoid creatures, their only goal is seemingly to devour humans on sight, but they don't take in nourishment from food. Regurgitating the corpses when they are full, Titans appear to crave humans simply out of urge or instinct. After being pushed to the brink of extinction, humanity enjoyed 100 years of peace safely protected within enormous walls until one day, a Colossal Titan appears and breaches the wall in the Shiganshina District.

According to Fakku Books (on June 19, 2014), the former hentai site is now an official manga publishing company after becoming partners with Wanimagazine, Japan's ero manga publisher. It's notable because Wanimagazine has not entered partnerships with a western company. For fans of Fakku, releases will not have any censorship, and it will be close to the original Japanese release. Fakku Books has rights to publish books and magazines from its partner.

These are Fakku's first four releases.

Renai Sample by Homunculus
TiTiKEi by Ishikei
Punikano by Pyon-Kti
Welcome to Tokoharusou by Kisaragi Gunma

Editor's Note

As a wiki editor, I heard of the site back in AX 2013 during the Fakku Panel. I thought it was an official company and added it as a company wiki page to attach to my blog, My First Experience at Anime Expo - Day 2 (Complete Edition). Little did I know it was a site that had pirated manga material. It was too late to delete it. That was before I was a wiki mod. An anonymous wiki editor PM me today about Fakku becoming an official manga publishing company.

I would have got into trouble by my senior wiki mods for adding a pirated site as a company wiki page. I will try to be careful next time.

I'll be adding these hentai manga series to the wiki database.

Welcome to last week's manga releases. I'm sorry for being late because I had a midterm last week. For Quick Picks, I will be choosing Fairy Tail, No. 6, and Haganai. All three series I got into via the anime route. I haven't read the manga for No. 6 or Haganai. I'm a big fan of Fairy Tail despite Shonen cliches, over usage of friendship, and other things. I still enjoy the series. No. 6 is good for fans who want to read about dystopias. However, it's not for the faint of heart. It has strong homosexuality elements if you're not comfortable with the material.

Please feel free to share your thoughts on what manga releases you're interested in this week. Thank you.

It's thanks to PikaHyper for uploading the English manga covers.

Disclaimer: I'm just promoting the official release and the publishers. I'm not selling you anything. This is to combat piracy and get fans to support the official release. All summaries are from ANN.

Years have passed and now Sasami has become a police officer herself. Her first assignment is to infiltrate Hanagaki All-Girls High School and ferret out any trouble she may find.

On her first day posing as a student, Sasami is shocked to discover that an apparent book thief at school is actually another undercover police officer, Sakuraba Midori. What’s more, Midori insists that she herself is the officer in charge of the school, not Sasami. Will the two girls become rivals, partners...or something more?
Haganai Volume 7
  • Distributor: Seven Seas Entertainment
  • Suggested retail price: $12.99
A wild and offbeat comedy about social outcasts who are obsessed with fandom, Haganai: I Don’t Have Many Friends is like Genshiken, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and Toradora!
all wrapped into one.

Recent high school transfer student Hasegawa Kodaka is pathetically inept at making friends. Kodaka is an outcast, with his natural blond hair which he inherited from his deceased English mother, and his unpleasant, fierce gaze. When he comes across the brash loner Mikazuki Yozora, who typically chats with her imaginary friend, the two outsiders become the unlikeliest
of allies.

Realizing that they have no hope of a normal social life, the two rejects decide to form a group called “The Neighbor’s Club” in order to make friends and maybe even learn a thing or two about social skills. As luck would have it, five new members join the club who are more socially awkward than they are. Will these quirky misfits ever make normal friends, or are they all doomed to social failure?
