Hentai Haven Site Goes Down; Twitter And Facebook Pages Shut Down
Hentai Haven

[Update 12/21/2018:]  Hentai Haven is coming back thanks to teaming up with Fakku.

[Update:] An official statement was issued on the HentaiHaven.org website and posted over on Reddit, revealing why Hentai Haven has shut down.

“HH was born during a time when fansubs were pretty much dying. New shows were subbed weeks after release, most sites had lackluster interfaces and didn’t give a crap about the content they were putting out. HH changed all that.

 

“But as a wise man once said, every journey must come to an end – and unfortunately, it ain’t the happy kind this time. There’s plenty of options out there now. Fansubs are faster than ever. Streaming sites are better than ever. There’s no longer a real need for HH. We’ve done our part. Now it’s up to the rest of you to carry the torch.”

[Original article:] The website HentaiHaven.org is no longer responding. Throughout December 19th, 2018 the site became inaccessible. If you attempt to visit the site it just times out. Additionally the Twitter account for the outlet providing content for visitors is no longer available, along with the Facebook page being purged.

The site has been around since January 2015 according to an archive of the Twitter account. The Represent store is still active featuring the t-shirts for the site. Unfortunately there’s no archive of the site in the Wayback Machine due to it being excluded from the database. Google also excluded the site from the index, but you can still see the general site results on other sites like DuckDuckGo.

Of course, if you attempt to visit the site you’ll get a 502 return error.

According to IsitDownorJust.me, the site has been down since December 19th, 2018.

This left a lot of the denizens and avid followers of the culturally enriched community of Hentai Haven absolutely perplexed at the outcome of such a tastefully perverse website no longer being accessible. Some joked by typing “RIP” and ‘F’ over on the Reddit page. Some asked what happened and why the site is no longer accessible? Others questioned if an old April’s Fools joke might have come true about the site owner having to pay off loans and could no longer pay to keep the site’s servers active? However, the “loan” theory was quickly shot down when it was revealed that the owner was joking on April 1st, 2018 about spending all his money on a new fursuit (because he’s a furry) and missed a payment.

[Update:] According to Namebio.com, a similar site, HentaiHaven.net (not HentaiHaven.org) sold for $11,573 back on November 21st, 2018. HentaiHaven.net is now a web portal for adult games. However, this still doesn’t explain what happened to HentaiHaven.org. There was allegedly a post on the Discord channel from the owner stating…

“The site is down and will stay down. Nothing else to say. Stop asking.

 

“The Discord and Mastadon will stay online.”

A few more wondered if this was in connection to the current war on lolis, where lolicon communities have been nuked or targeted for censorship in recent times? Others wondered if it’s broader than that, and if it ties into the war on anime? Which seems logical since another site called Project Hentai also had its Shopify store banned.

Right now we don’t know exactly what happened or how long the site will be down.

There has been a rapid increase in censorship in recent times for lots of adult-oriented websites, as well as social media networks like Tumblr banning all pornography, Google forcing censorship on fan-service, and Sony forcing games to censor fan-service even if they’re already approved by the ratings boards.

Its time to batten down the hatches and save your waifus wherever you can, fellas. The Waifu Holocaust 2.0 is in full swing.
