Most likely CNN's report bothered me more than I thought and when I heard about the news it was an "Oh no here we go again. We will not see the end of this" reaction. I wasn't told about the judge at first and didn't see what the judge said at the time of reading the article. When I first read it I thought that was what they said the motivation was. After looking it over again and again and reading peoples posts(especially yours), I can see I may have worried about something that wasn't a problem since the judge isn't taking it as an excuse. I may have a mod close my post since, it's not what I originally thought. Thanks again for going in depth about the topic and explaining it, it really helped make things clearer

A general discussion on anime/manga's being misunderstood and/or misrepresented (again, including ecchi and hentai works) seems warranted. There's no need to lock the thread, only to repurpose it. Hentai and ecchi do get a bad reputation which I consider to be frequently unwarranted, both within and outside of the anime/manga community. That's worth talking about, I think.

Okay would you think the question I asked now would be better suited? I did edit the forum post to fix my errors....well I did put spoilers around some of it, but I did correct myself

I'm not really sure how to keep the conversation going, but part of me is wondering if anime and games are just swapping the 'blame spotlight' at this point - in all honesty I thought anime's time in that area hasn't been since the days people thought Sailor Moon was explicit.

Aside from that, as someone who plays VNs on a regular basis, I can say that the broadness of sex in the genre as a whole does more harm than good, and would most likely do better without it. They're quite good on their own and don't need them holding it back.

I'm just wondering why the girl's family is launching a civil lawsuit against Philadephia itself. That's arguably as bad as the persecution's attempt to trash anime.

Yes it can, don't you know that video games cause all school shootings now?! Back in the 90's it was the music industry that caused school shootings. Damn you Marylin Manson and Eminem you should of been imprisoned for brain washing our children. I know this to be fact because the media has stated it for years. Now to the case at hand the only possible reason anyone would do that was because of the hentai they where watching. Arrest the artists and put them in jail how dare they do this, it is sickening.

The question posed seems fine.

The main problem with stating that violent depictions in media (whether it be video games or anime) serve as a motivating factor for violent crime is that the data on the subject of violent media and its association with aggressive behavior is presently unclear. Some questions I would raise concern how to standardize measurements of aggression, whether aggression is increased directly or indirectly (if at all) by viewing violent depictions in anime, whether confounding factors such as mental illness or age might impact the data, and whether violent depictions (if a factor in induction of violent behavior or thinking at all) are impacting enough to merit action. As the collective metastudies on the subject of media and violence have returned mixed results it is reasonable to state that no conclusively established causative link between consumption of violent anime and violent behavior currently exists.
