Imitating anime, harmful to children?
Posted 3/8/08
Strangle themselves? I don't remember what episode with any strangling involved...probably they just thought all humans are immortal and someone must come save them when they're in trouble. Out of everything...Naruto?

Next thing you know, a regular shounen anime will be R rated

I would be more worried about 'live-action' shows or things like Jackass or even some Youtube videos because kids might be more likely to see stuff they could immitate than some anime/cartoons because anime/cartoons are more obviously less real than 'live action' stuff would be.

Me thinks that kid has major problems figuring out the difference between reality and make-believe.

honestly I'm sad for the kid that died, but it's not the anime's fault at all, nor should anime like Naruto and such be restricted from kids. It's practically made for them. It's the parents fault for not realizing that their kid didn't know the difference between reality and t.v.

Indonesian Child Dies After Reportedly Imitating Anime

Mutammimul Ula, a Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) member of Indonesia's parliament, has criticized the country's broadcasting regulatory agency for being too lax after a boy allegedly strangled himself while imitating a character from the Naruto anime. Ula called on the agency, which is known as the Komisi Penyiaran Indonesia (KPI or Indonesian Broadcasting Commission), to be more strict in dealing with various television programs. He specifically named Naruto, saying that it "contains violence and caused a boy to take his own life." He adds, "Many people still don't realize that comics are not necessarily for children. That very much depends on the substance."

The KPI's mandate includes setting the rules for content of all programs on broadcast and cable television. However, it has been reduced in recent years to a consultative body.

haha thats a funny pic. and parents should monitor kids under the age of 16 cause Anime is for teens that understand things and can tell the diff between RL and Anime. So yeah dont think Anime has anything to do with kids imitating stuff from anime and getting killed. blame parents for letting 13 or younger watch adult swim. So yeah enough said.

Wel if you do something like strangle yourself becuase or anime of punch your classmates lights out then you're obviously not mature enough to handle anime or something like Mickey Mouse or Bugs Money

it's not that they are idiots, it's just what we were saying earlier. it's the parents fault. just because kids these days watch things at an extremely young age it's causing huge problems.


Exactly I couldn't say it any better myself.

Kids are so stupid, but then so are the people who blame the anime for its content or call video games "murder simulators".

"Death Note Was Not 'Hit List', School Officials Say"
At least one parent is upset after his daughter was one of 39 students listed in a so-called “death notebook” allegedly written by two Walter J. Baird Middle School students.

The parent, who did not wish to give his name to protect his daughter, said he is upset school officials waited to hold a meeting Thursday afternoon before telling parents about the notebook.

The death notebook detailed how each of 39 Walter J. Baird Middle School students would die and when.

School officials maintain the death notebook was not a hit list and waited to tell parents about it because the two students had already been taken into custody....

they banned the item there and there was another incident in china, then they also banned the manga there...

they are really idiots... imitating the anime just so they can do whatever they like and blame it on that anime...

That's how most people are, not really wanting to take the blame on themselves and look for a scapegoat.
