So, Crunchy, it appears our good friends the Morality Police, the Censorial Crusaders, the Social Justice Warrior horde, has now decided that anime and lesbians are "problematic":




http://www.nerdspan.com/english-love-live-school-idol-festival-removes-homosexual-references/



It is especially shocking (bear shock!) that this occurs after a recent anime aired with the premise of lesbians being erased by society and culture in Japan, which is such a phenomenon that academics refer to homosexuals in Japan as "The Invisible Ones."


The american subsidiary handling localization has commented, but:

- has not said if it was corporate policy or if the change was made by an individual or a few members of localization team

- has not named any policy going forward to ensure that this does not occur again

- has not reinstated the original content

- has refused to actually address the concerns of fans by labeling them as "different interpretations" and thus stating fans concerns are illegitimate


If you want to let the company know about your feelings on erasing minorities, altering creative works to where characters are literally different people, and whatever other thoughts you have, you can use the company contact form here:

https://www.klab.com/us/contact/

Or contact them through Facebook and other social media (links to do so can be found in this news article: http://www.nerdspan.com/english-love-live-school-idol-festival-removes-homosexual-references/

Or contact their marketing communications manager:

(This info for the marketing manager is from a press release in January, perhaps not up to date).

I fully support Lesbians, I fully support watching Lesbians >.>

And I personally think everyone else's opinion matters as much as sand is used in farming.

Um, no, this obviously isn't SJWs at work. Social Justice Warriors are for a lot of stupid things, but "let's pretend gay people aren't real" is from the morality police on the opposite side of the political spectrum.

Don't know too many right wingers in San Diego or San Fransisco (where the company has offices).

But don't take my word for it. Its pretty well known that SJWs hate lesbians and gay men:

And that is coming from admittedly Left friendly outlets.

I really doubt the SJWs were behind this.

"BUT MUH SAN FRANCISCO"

Heres the deal despite what ones location says about translations teams personal politics(not much) its a business thing. They didnt feel it would appeal to an american audience so they cut it out. Blaming this on SJW is a pretty big stretch.

Not really censorship until the government comes down and tries to change it though.

For the record its still Bullshit that they cut it out and they should have left it in.

pretending something dosnt exist, dosnt stop it from existing, that's the obvious, so why make a huge fuss over it? seems pointless

Weird, most people I know who fight for social justice are fighting for folks like lesbians. Most folks against showing lesbians are not fighting for social justice.

But hey, what do I know, I'm just a feminist. Maybe a true SJW can jump in and settle this case for us.

Why is everyone overlooking the most obvious answer: the company is trying to market to the widest audience possible, and in their professional opinions believed that would be the way to go.

They probably have lots of statistics about straight male demographics that suggested to them a traditional harem "dating sim" would do better in the U.S.

Haha, the shippers are mad that they don't get their precious yuri fantasies from the EN SIF game.

Anyway, i will admit that KLAB America does handle the translations very poorly.

Really? Probably because it's a niche game here in America. Dragon Age Inquisition for example has multiple openly gay characters (Sera, Dorian), no one censored it nor cared.
