[UPDATE]: 12th Episode of Higurashi 2, School Days Final Episode Canceled
Following a recent murder case where a 16-year-old girl killed her father with an axe, Tokai TV canceled screenings of the anime, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai. The anime contains violent scenes and in one of them, a scene where a girl is swinging an axe. Fearing unpleasant comments from the public, officials from the broadcast station had decided to go ahead with this decision. The status of any future airing of this series is unknown.

As for the anime, School Days, many broadcasters canceled the final episode due to a scene following this event.

[UPDATE]: Another axe attack had occured. This time by a 15-year-old boy. The father survived. While Tokai TV chose this path, other stations had decided the latter and aired the 12th episode.

Such action reminds me of something that the US would do, but I guess Japan can do that too.

umm... that was a loooooooooooong time ago... only idiots will copy the actions done in anime in real life....
there were probably peronsally probelms the girl was going through that she didn't want to discuss about...

cus the way i see things... there no reason to swing down a hachet on ur father's head just for the heck of it... at least the case of the boy w/axe the father survived....

oh because of those incidents that happen, a few anime got effected by it. For example u see dark DARK red blood in bleach and the same goes for Naruto... Higurashi no Naku Koro Nii season 1 opening had regualr colored blood, but after to a certain episode the blood change to black if i remember correctly...

The article wasn't too long ago. The first incident with the 16 year old girl was in Sept. 2007. That's not too long ago. But I guess the whole thing stems back to a similar arguement like are viloent video games and violent movies corrupting the young people. Face it, recognise your own maturity level. If it's too much for you, don't watch it. The only one htey have to blame is that they CHOSE to watch it. They can't blame the show, it's FICTION. This is a case in point of someone taking something way to serious.
