Well that was really short lived. PUSH! Publication and MiKandi Japan English translation project with doujin artist LINDA, has now been suspended from Kickstarter. Here’s PUSH!’s response:
Dear Backers and Supporters,
As you may know by now, our Kickstarter project has been suspended due to “inappropriate content” as termed by Kickstarter. This is despite the fact that the project was manually approved by the Kickstarter team. As we are unsure of what is going on at the moment, we suspect that our project was subjected to mass reporting led by either a rival company or encouraged by a certain individual, even though there’s plenty of adult content out there, they specifically targeted ours.
This is the second time a PUSH! Publication project was suspended due to reasons that Kickstarter has refused to give us specifically. As we believe this decision is unfair, we are currently asking Kickstarter for more clarification on the matter.
We have informed the artist, LINDA, to let him know about the current situation. As you can imagine, he is extremely disappointed over this. And now we have another perfect example of why Japanese artists are so weary to release their work outside of Japan. Unclear rules. Approval, then disapproval. No clear explanations.
Despite this unfortunate situation, PUSH! Publication and Mikandi Japan remain committed to bringing success to this exciting project. We urge all backers and supporters to subscribe to the following email list to be alerted once the LINDA project relaunches!

PUSH! Publication, MiKandi Japan, and LINDA
I guess that’s what happens when you’re NTR loving scums.
You get cucked! But no, jokes aside, this is really fucked up. This has been going on a little too much recently with adult content being banned off of companies platform without any clear explanation. It shows that adult content is this looked down upon and gets not respect. I truly hope this notion changes soon. I'm just really happy that Subverse didn't get the same treatment.
Did PUSH! Publication get cucked? Was Kickstarter in the right? Do you think PUSH! Will get their project back on Kickstarter? Tell us in the comments below.
