So you would absolve the parents of all guilt? Parents are the primary force in MOST childrens lives. Primarly because of things like curfue which are inforced by the parents and or state. If the parents don't want their children watching questionable cartoons then put a block on your TV (it is possible to block individual programs now and not whole channels) and punish the child when he or she does watch shows that are with out morals and explain to the child why your doing what your doing. If the government really wanted to do something they should regulate the anime industry through Government Ratings like G (care bears), PG (Gundam the original series), PG-13 (D-Gray man and Gundam 00), R (Elvin Lied), X (Rosiaro Vampire), XXX (Hinti). Not self reg like the ESRB for reasons you mentioned before. Also using ratings like the ones I mentioned before would work because they are simple to understand, the reason this Bill is being made is because to many shows of the X rating are being made, they are bad but not to the point where they are XXX.

It seems like you guys support child pornography, which is both sad and disappointing. If you want boobs and panty shots so bad, then go watch porn. You must considered how awkward it feels to be a woman here. It's HARD for me to watch anime seeing boobs and panty shots everywhere. Esp. with kids that are 13 years old. OR 16 yr olds who LOOK LIKE 13 yr olds.

Plus, where are the tags? I don't see tags here like ecchi. So, here I am enjoying a show thinking that it is fun and great to watch, then here comes to panty shots and boob shots ruining the show for me. You must consider that GIRLS watch anime, too, and we don't want to see that. Plus, crunchyroll isn't good at warning girls about these things. It would be nice to see an ecchi tag so that I would know not to watch.

You must consider that if all the girls were to stop watching anime, then anime would lose a LOT of money that way, too. Anime could have a LOT more female viewers if it were to get rid of those boob and panty shots. ESPECIALLY of underaged kis.

"Tokyo’s definition of how it deems publicly available material as harmful to minors will be changed.
- Previously, “Any material that may be detrimental toward the healthy development of youth because of their capacity to be sexually stimulating, encourages cruelty, and/or may compel suicide or criminal behavior.” was the criteria.
- Now the criteria will be expanded to include: “Any manga, animation, or pictures (but not including real life pictures or footage) that features either sexual or pseudo sexual acts that would be illegal in real life, or sexual or pseudo sexual acts between close relatives whose marriage would be illegal*, where such depictions and / or presentations unjustifiably glorify or exaggerate the activity.”
- Any material that is excessively breaches this standard can be deemed to be “harmful material” by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government unilaterally and thereby restrict their circulation from all minors (0-17 of age)."

I got this this excerpt from this site:
http://dankanemitsu.wordpress.com/2010/11/24/bill-156s-total-scope/

From my understanding, this bill does not deny the artists' rights on creating the work they want. It is just to keep minors from seeing content that is inappropriate and not having inappropriate content marketed toward them either. From what I have read I would have to say I agree with the bill. As an adult, this bill will not affect me at all. Que sera, sera.
