"Anime" have been around for the last century. Mr. Nabokov also lived in the 20th century. The term lolicon had been inspired by his book, Lolita.
Do you think that he would approve and enjoy lolicon?
Do you think he watched anime?

I think he would be proud to know that he made a revolutionary change in the anime society.
that or
he does not have opinion on anime then and doesn't have opinion today...
OR
he mite dissapprove anime along with lolicon.

His opinion would be, "WTF is anime?!"

Oh! For those, who are wondering, who's the hell is Nabokov! Well, he's the guy who wrote "Lolita". And from there came all the "loli" words like lolicon.

Lolita is a very good book, in my opinion. I actually read it because I heard it was the origin of the term "lolicon", and read it a second time since. It's a great read if you are mature about it. The 1997 movie is also worth watching. But I think that Nobokov himself would not have much of an opinion about anime. If he did, I think it may have been a low one. Lolita was published in 1955, when Nobokov was 58. At that age, probably considered anime on the same level as early morning cartoons, something for little kids, if he had even heard of it at all.

I read the book when I was twelve.
Pedophilia was only one of the themes of the book.
He might acknowledged his "achievement", but rather than "disapproving" or being "proud" I'm pretty sure he would more apathetic.
