Tokyo bans dodgy anime and manga.
« on: 07 February, 2011, 11:18:31 PM »
No doubt all you otaku types are aware of this, but crusading governer ShintarĊ Ishihara has passed a law banning any Anime or Manga "likely to interfere with the healthy development of youth". In other words, any work that contained underage sex, graphic violence, gratuitous nudity, homosexuality, incest etc. etc.

So basically they're banning all Anime and Manga.

The law encountered very little opposition from most political parties, though the Democratic Party of Japan heroically refused to support the law until a passage criminalising the possession of actual child pornography was removed.

Brilliant!  :D

An entire culture devoted to insanity?!

And nothing of value was lost.
