China has banned Attack On Titan and 38 other anime
Posted 6/8/15

China has blacklisted 38 Japanese cartoons, including the megahit “Attack on Titan,” from appearing online, state media reported Monday, amid a broadening crackdown on the country’s Internet.

Twenty-nine Chinese websites have received warnings or fines for carrying shows that “encourage juvenile delinquency, glorify violence and include sexual content,” according to the state-run Xinhua News Agency.



Rumors of a blacklist of Japanese anime began earlier this year, with speculation that candidates included popular cartoons “One Piece” and “Naruto.”

In March, the Ministry of Culture announced it would ban several lesser-known shows, including “blood C,” due to adult content, and that a more comprehensive list was forthcoming.

Let's all be incredibly thankful we don't live there. For this reason and for many others. There's always going to be crazy countries like China, Russia, North Korea and Syria that are behind everyone else when it comes to human rights.

I can understand banning One Piece or Naruto, but Attack on Titan? Well they're missing out on an awesome show.

This isn't even about the anime. China has been in disputes with Japan over "if memory serves me" islands. If i'm not mistaken all that anime was made in Japan and brings in massive amounts of money. China is going to do whatever they can to limit how much profits Japan will be able bring in. Unfortunately anime was the target and they did the same thing with video games mainly Japanese publishers, so this doesn't really surprise that much.

I might care if I actually lived in China or it had at least even a little effect on me in some way.

Yeah, so real life action movies with violent scenes are okay when 2D ones are not. Okay, China.

And showing young people being violent is encouraging juvenile delinquency. Okay, China.
