Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, July 09, 2019

A transfer of power at the internet's biggest free anime porn site was supposed to finally make its copyright-infringing operations more legit. Instead, the takeover of Hentai Haven has spurred a civil war within the hentai community. That conflict came to light yesterday after Hentai Haven's anonymous founder, who goes by Papa HH, broke his silence after a seven-month absence. "Fakku has completely taken over and booted me out," he wrote on the front page of the site, which is usually home to a happy medley of balloon-breasted anime girls."Fakku played me like a cum-stained violin."

I know this will alarm certain users. You can probably set up a legal defense fund.

Also, nothing really stops you from going DarkWeb except lack of advertising revenue. I mean, if your a purist, why not? Can't masturbate without money?

Since its founding in 2014, Hentai Haven has been offering Japanese artists' wares at no cost and making ad money off the plentiful page views. In fact, Hentai Haven's founder told Kotaku that, at peak, the site was earning him $1,000 to $2,000 a day from advertising, very little of which he paid out to the site's part-time workers. Below-board and piracy-fueled, Hentai Haven was popular among fans but, predictably, not among hentai publishers, who had not yet found legitimate footing in the U.S.
..
It seemed like Papa HH was just winding down the site, but behind the scenes, Grady and Papa HH had already inked a deal. The contract, viewed by Kotaku, transferred Hentai Haven and its associated accounts, like Discord and Twitter, from Papa HH to Grady "in exchange for absolving [Papa HH] of all legal responsibility." Hentai Haven appeared to confirm this in a tweet, which depicted Fakku as a knight in shining armor shielding Hentai Haven, a young maiden, from the FBI.
..
Grady said that he shut off Hentai Haven's over $1 million yearly ad contract. He shared a screenshot with Kotaku to corroborate this. "Nobody is making any money," he said. "In fact, I'm paying out of pocket to keep that thing online because I don't want the community to disappear."
..
Tonight, Grady and Papa HH finally spoke to each other for the first time in months. "I talked to him and got him to delete his statements, but it wasn't settled in a friendly way," said Grady. Now, Grady is biding his time and hoping to collect more hentai licenses from Japanese publishers. He said he wants to keep Hentai Haven free, in part because of the harassment he received after putting Fakku behind a paywall. He figures Hentai Haven will make a ton of money off advertisements, as it has in the past.

The piracy-based hentai business, Papa HH said, is no longer "sustainable."

"I would say this to other piracy sites - look for ways to legitimize your business ASAP," he said. "I'm one of the few lucky ones who got out and didn't get sued. But you won't be lucky forever. Japan will be cracking down harder than ever as the months go by. Quit while you still can and invest your money in something legit.

So, nothing has substantially changed. They are still making ridiculous advertising money, regardless.
