    Art is crap, and paying money for something that is on shaky legal ground to begin with sounds dumb. I might consider it if they were selling original art, but don't expect me to pay money for something you stole in the first place.

    I'm guessing that you're not a big fan of Artist's Alleys at cons :P

    I loved Linda's art--the girls are like R. Crumb women turned anime--but I'd never support xenophobic morons. FOREIGNERS ARE RUINING JAPANESE COMIC ARTISTS O NOES
    As if piracy in Japan has absolutely nothing to do with it. Nope, us foreigners are just enabling them.

    Hope you guys don't get a C&D for posting those samples up. God forbid the horrible Americans see Linda's art for free.

    Peter asked us if we would post about it, so I'd be surprised if even Linda could object.

    This makes me cry.

    I wholeheartedly agree with the concept of uncensored pay downloads for the western market. I want to support it.

    But:

    1. I have no interest in Bleach doujins, even if the art is awesome.
    2. J-List requires a credit card (which I (and almost all other Germans I know) do not own), Paypal works for nonadult stuff only.
    3. J-List wants my full address for downloadable stuff. (Not as big a problem, but still retarded.)

    Now I guess that 2. and 3. are related to retarded laws, but this means that this is basically a no-go for me. Even if I WANT to pay for the stuff. And I CAN obtain it legally at my age.

    Sigh.

    I'm German and I got a pretty cheap credit card. If you're 18 or older you can get a credit card without trouble and very conveniently. If you're not, you shouldn't be trying to get this stuff.

    Say what you will about Linda Project's dogged pursuit of shutting down any free links to their stuff - it is some quality doujinshi, and I'll support them.

    What rocks about this style is the heavy emphasis and detail in shading and lighting. It makes them seem a bit more 3D a realistic. Maybe that's whats making people sick. The boobs even look pretty realistically done for their sizes (but I really don't think all of them are really that big). This guy's also an expert on squish and squeeze effects. Even still, there is a hint of exaggeration to it all. I'm really liking the way the women are drawn, I just think the scenes are a little too rough. They seem to have an atmosphere of pain, rape, and bondage. None of these girls are having fun. I like more love and joy in my hentai. Sometimes I do like bondage, beast, and dirty stuff, but only if the women look like they're really toughing it and having a good time despite having things done to them that would normally scar most girls. So it might be strange but I prefer the artist who did all those Monster Hunter pics with the huge breasted girls doing minotaurs than these pics. Those girls were owning those minotaurs like their breakfast.

    IMHO, another way you guys can support English hentai is by buying the books by Icarus Comics, which are really excellent and which -- in the case of Comic AG -- are only $4.99 per issue, even less if you by them bulk, which we happily sell. Simon is maniacal about quality of translation and faithfulness to the original works, and he deserves your support. We sell subscriptions to AG as well.

    no, you just need to go somewhere where there IS more DFC. An artist can make breasts any size he/she wants.

    Weren't these available on fakku until just recently? Went back to check, and it seems they were taken down.

    They would have been C&Ded. There are still a lot of places where they are still available (starting with all the Japanese P2P services), so I can't help but think it is not having the desired effect...

    I'm torn. I don't really like the art style, so I don't want to buy them. But I really like the idea of uncensored doujinshi, and I want to support it. Decisions, decisions...

    I'm in love with his great artwork.
    It doesn't matter to me what series the doujinshi parodies, as long as the artwork is good.
    I think 6 dollars is a very reasonable price and I am actually going to see which of his works I'll buy.

    I'm going to buy these so that Japanese artists will follow Linda's lead. Not having to decensor and translate will be kind of nice. Especially not having to decensor.

    It's a good business move, and one that I hope other doujinshi authors will catch onto in the future, but I still don't like Linda's stories or art.

    I swear, the way he draws the breasts being grabbed makes it look like they're made of canvas cloth rather than skin.

    This is obviously a popular genre, though not one of universal appeal. Perhaps his work appeals to a distinct crowd, hence the focus on Bleach, Naruto and so on?

    That would probably go a long way to explaining their popularity. Sometimes, just being connected (loosely) to a popular work can make said derivative popular, too.

    ...well, that, plus the shitstorming over the takedown notices.

    I remember once, long ago, Linda's editor (or publisher/assistant/something like that, I forget what) showed up on 4chan's /h/ board in response to some anon trying to organize a proliferation scheme to counter the takedowns. Other anons flamed away, of course, but I actually took the time to point out several problems with the way they were doing things.

    1. They were only making the pirates more determined.
    2. They were hurting their reputation and their chance to find greater success outside Japan.
    3. They were failing to address the issue of the raws being leaked from inside Japan.
    4. None of the sellers Linda Project used at the time had even a half-decent reputation for international sales.
    5. Most of the English-speaking world couldn't read it in its original Japanese.

    He seemed convinced to deal with 4 and 5, there, but he failed to respond to points 1, 2, and 3.

    I wish I'd have screencapped that thread for posterity. Ah, hindsight.

    Thanks for the (mostly useful) comments. Yes, our goal is to use this as a springboard and get more works available, more works by Linda (who is cool and who we're trying to support), and also other circles (mmm, Behind Moon, mmm). Hopefully fans will respond to the low price and good translations we've done, which include touch up work by the artist, which is nice.

    Linda doesn't do loli at all. I like his character designs, but the problem is the majority of his stories are rape/corrosion type stories. To me that's a big turn off.....

    True. Linda does do moar stuff other than Naruto and Bleach. Her work is mostly in some popular ero-mags. Look for the torrents.
