No, sorry, they were following the precedent already set after complaint had to cut one of the world songs on the first Little Big Planet game's soundtrack for the PS3 when a bit of Muslim text showed up in the lyrics.

So, any angry high-school athie who wants Muslim Headline or SJW Complaint of the Day to bite the hook, the bait's about seven years old. Do try to keep up.


Unless you can come up with a similar thing like you just did but with Japan doing it, your trying to pick a fight with me with out knowing what I'm talking about lel.

Plus I'm a 20 year old college Zen Buddhist.

Not you, just the other knee-jerks who look for any daily headline with "Angry Muslim" in it to post the usual abstract default memes about "Religion is a bunch of loonies because of Those Darn Muslims!"
The soapboxes they stand on are beginning to creak and splinter a bit from overuse, and from being carted everywhere they go.

And since you did ask for Japan, how about http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2008-05-22/jojo-anime-manga-sales-halted-due-to-islamic-images ?

I'm not surprised actually given what's happened recently in Paris and now CA.


Serious question though; is Japan on ISIS' shit list as well? I know they've killed Japanese nationals who've done charity work but you never seem to hear too much about things going on over there, unlike here in the West.

If it isn't religion, then it'll be politics. In the end, it's just hatred that drives them. They're mandated by their religion to hate anyone not a practitioner of Islam. It's the bottom line as pointed out in their Koran. That's why they believe wholeheartedly that they are in the right.

If Islam didn't exist, then it would be politics that would drive the hatred. People like them just need an excuse to slaughter innocents, just because of hatred. Like the Nazi party, or the K.K.K., or White Supremacists, or.... Well, you get the idea.

What drove the attempted genocide of a group of Africans against another group of Africans in Rwanda? Hatred. What caused the Serbians to do "Ethnic Cleansing" against the Croats? Hatred. Hatred that was fueled by politics. It wasn't even about Race. Cause Serbians and Croats are basically the same people. Just different languages and cultures. Same with the people in Rwanda...

So, right now, what we have is a group of people that want an excuse to hate, and Islam is their outlet.

To be fair, it wasn't just Islam, Catholics were like that way back in history, and so were a bunch of other Christianity based denominations. The difference is that the hatred part of the Christian denominations have been routed out. Unless I hark back to the Catholics and Protestants that were killing each other for almost a hundred years in Ireland.... That may have been sparked off by politics though...


Nowadays we got Christian Fundamentalists and Mexicans that people are pissed over.

But there is nothing wrong with deciding to redact something because you felt it might have been insensitive and didn't want to be disrespectful. Again I'm pretty sure this was them making the decision to remove the track of their own accord. No one is banning anything here.

So the publisher/producer of some song decided to pull it after learning it had some form of religious meaning that would insult people of a certain believe?

As long as they did that because they simply don't want to offend others I don't see the problem. +++ for the people who made the decision to pull the thing out of consideration for the feeling of some other people. If more people on this planet were that considerate the world would be a little better.

PR wise... well I never read about that specific manga before, now I know about it. Win-Win for them really, wise people.

Maybe in the US but in Africa Christians still kill people based on religion.

wow. who complained? it makes no sense. frankly, that is kind of creative to include it and no, it doesn't insult anyone.
