I guess all of you out there who've watched the infamous "SchoolDays" would have known of this trend that has been occurring after the Loli Killer incident in Japan.

The incident had caused SchoolDays and Higurashi Kai to be preempted because it is believed that the ending of SchoolDays and story of Higurashi influenced the girl for committing such a crime.

The solution was to change the colour of the blood, to black. Many were saying that the red blood were the stimulant that stimulated the girl's mind and brings her to killing.

===========================
Apparently on Ep63 of D.Gray-Man, Lenalee's blood were black. I don't know if it's caused by the reflection of the night or is it changed because of the incident.

Will this trend continue for the rest of the Anime span or will it dies off..soon?
Please give your comments on this. ;D

I had enough of inks =.=

I wouldn't be surprised. In order to remain profitable and acceptable, entertainment does have to be sensitive to these kinds of things. Bleach has been doing it almost from the start. Less popular, more adult-oriented anime will probably go unchanged, but I would expect to see so-called "really popular" animes to follow at least some form of censorship trend.

in japan, if a person died, blood shouldn't been seen as red, so they changed it to black.

Wouldn't have much impact since its blood still coming out of a person no reason what the colour is. They should remove the blood if they don't want this to happen but that would cause animes to be unrealistic.

I agree. Changing red to black does not make any difference at all. You might as well not air any "bloody or violent" anime on TV

I think that would be possible however that will cater to anime that are created and targeted for younger audiences while red blood will be for animes that cater to the mature adults who won't be triggered to kill just by blood.

no big deal even the blood changed to black color... as long as we understand was is it... and does that mean that the bloodiest anime would remain same from now on since the new anime would not have any red blood scence~??
