FAKKU recently announced that they picked up COMIC KOH for their subscription service. This news somewhat hit me by surprise, because I thought something like this would happen during an event like Anime Expo, such as when they announced they had picked up BAVEL, Europa, and Girls forM last year.
But I can’t say I’m completely surprised. As I wrote last year, once they’d spread beyond WANIMAGAZINE, it was only a matter of time until they picked up another magazine, and my first prediction happened to be correct.
Now I was a bit dramatic when I said BAVEL’s acquisition was a huge blow to the scene, but this news means we will no longer work on COMIC KOH works moving forward. Fortunately, we didn’t have any current projects from COMIC KOH, and surprisingly there was only one KOH work in our potential projects list. It was a magazine I used to look forward to the most, like back in 2015, but I haven’t been excited by their lineups in quite a while.
So I guess we’ll chug on with the noose a little tighter than before. Now that KOH has fallen, what comes next: Anthurium, ExE, or possibly HOTMiLK? We can only wait and see.
