The World God Only Knows (playing games in class)


I can't help but think of a scenario where a kid is playing a Nintendo DS in class and his teacher comes in.

Teacher: ZOMG THAT KID IS PLAYING DURING CLASS.
Principal: THIS IS ALL BECAUSE OF THAT ONE SHOW. LET'S SEND A COMPLAINT LOL.

Well there you have it folks, yet another reason why I have little to no faith in humanity.

Whatever. And I was thinking it was a ban for everyone, not people under 18 lol

ok

1 air it later at night ....how much later than three am can you get

2 they already censor things quite heavily on most stations and magazines now the dvds and volumes will be censored killing one of their major sales points and oppressing the authors rights

3 the ban gives the tokyo government the power to selectively and arbitrarily ban whatever they want

4 the ban also enforces stricter controls on hentai and also makes it so anything can be categorised as hentai arbitrarily

5 parents buy this stuff then blame it for their kids becoming otaku

6 most anime and manga are aimed at highschool age kids and now most of it will be inaccessible to them (those who dont buy online anyway) damaging the market

7 any mangaka trying to get serialised after this is put in place will only be so if they conform to these rules giving the tokyo government the power to control what is written

8 crunchyroll screwed over by japan all the works that cr upload that fall under these rules come form tokyo tv stations so anything from this stage will be the same so cr will only be able to up the same crap that the stations are "allowed" to broadcast

9 this is simple otaku hunting
Banned

Sounds like animes will become the same crap as cartoons of today if this keeps up.


Nah, since what made Anime superior compared to cartoon is becuase Anime using Manga art which is based on Asians facial & body form.

The law only want to get ride of the loli stuff from Anime.

It may be passed but it won't last. Manga/Anime make up a bulk of the Jap industry(Both national and international) and these 'Banned' material roughly make up at least half of Anime alone. In time they'll realize that 'Virtual Youth" doesn't make money and manga/anime/games do. Either that or i'll have to pick out a better entertainment outlet.

There are some who believe that if we have enough people to go against this we can perhaps overturn this law that will be effective in July. Most anime and manga that contain perhaps even a little bit of ecchi will be gone, some of the older titles as well. I believe Lucky Star, Milky Holmes Tantei, Kiddy Girl, etc. , may all be banned. I believe we should do something as otakus, fans of anime and manga.


Will governments ban such that good anime? Oh hell no.

Hope the creators, publishers etc ignore it, that most of them have the backbone to do that.
J.C Staff and Gainmax probably have that.

Hope the creators of Mitsudomoe and Seitokai Yakuindomo ignore it.
