If anyone wondering what the song say, there a video of the song with subtitling as well as a translation of those subtitles. Also there some background info about similar incidents as well as some context.

Not sure if anyone did. The production committee may have just had a preemptive heart attack. I've worked in public relations before, and companies can be very paranoid about these things.

Existence is pain.

Eternal waking nightmare.

The suffering is endless.

that makes more sense. seems there is more freedom in creating a manga than an anime.

A lot of Muslims did call for it to be deleted.



The screen capture show only a fraction of the tweets. The link I put up previously just show much backlash were directed at them.

I see I missed that earlier. Pulling it probably wasn't a bad idea then.

Ah.

In the composer's defense, they probably had no idea and just picked it because it probably sounded cool and fit the anime. It's not like Islam is mainstream in Japan...

What are you talking about? I-I didn't give you that explosive vest because I like you! I just thought you needed to look good for your martyrdom!

Since when did muslims get offended about so many things and be able to influence decision making of companies in other countries?You can't exactly expect people all around world live as you would want them to live. How about they take an chill pill and....relax a little when it comes to matters of religion and faith?When one takes something too seriously they tend to be no fun partners in crime.

Religion man... when is it going to die out.


Christians, Buddhist, Shinto, Taoists are all pretty tolerant. Heck look at how much south park makes fun of Christians and yet all Christians do is protest and complain... No threats or violence.


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


They also believe raping virgins will cure them of AIDS... They aren't exactly the sharpest tools in the shed. I also doubt they can even understand/read their own religion.
