    Pft, obviously you guys have never watched the awesome Golden Boy, dubbed version.

    Also, I think the ban is terrible. While over the years manga and anime quality has dropped, it doesn't mean that all manga and anime are like that. Its just hurting the economy even more from a place that isn't doing so well either in the first place. Plus pissing off a business that is actually bringing them profit is stupid especially after seeing the backlash from publishers and creators.

    The ban isn't going to magically up the quality of manga and anime. I honestly think it's stupid to think that that'll be the end result for everything.

    The affects of the ban is actually pretty big because other parts of the country are considering taking up the ban as well. Then how do you expect mangakas, publishers, and readers to even want to continue as they wanted to do before? It's like turning all PG-13 movies into Rated R movies, how can you expect them to continue and want to continue?

    Granted some of the stuff out there should just disappear, but obviously it isn't justifiable for everything.

    Umm it's more like some of the Rated X stuff is now rated X.

    They aren't really targeting your PG-13 material.

    Besides I think the ban is great. It's a good shit filter.

    I think it's great because it could separate the pointless and degrading smut out of otherwise decent stories.

    Not really.

    Except that it targets EVERYTHING. How is majority of the series in Jump are considered rated X? It's now lumped with all the adult magazines. Some filter.

    It's not a quality filter. If such a thing were possible, well, even I wouldn't consider it a bad thing.

    If only that were the only thing it actually bans.

    Maybe I'm missing something but how does it target EVERYTHING. It really only targets mangas that use children/teenagers in violent/ecchi situations.

    Violent most likely being Elfen Lied material.

    Edit: Like I say I might be missing something. Mind pointing out your fears from an article or something. Maybe I just misunderstood the ban.

    Second Edit: Hey Abaile did you see my Facebook?

    Because everything is being inspected, new or old. They're basically throwing away the Teen rating and saying whether it's either PG or Rated R. It's also not just mangas that are being targeted, but animes and video games.

    NGE for example will likely fall under the ban.

    Plus I think people are seriously underestimating the scope of things. It'll effect not just future titles, but also previous existing titles. Publishers/producers will have to censor/butcher existing or future projects in order to avoid the ban. There will likely be a lot less distribution because of the fact that kids and teens aren't allowed to buy "adult" stuff. On top of that, considering how important Tokyo is business wise, it's a pretty big deal as it has and will affect areas around them.

    There won't be a ban on anything. All that will happen is stuff will get an adult age rating. I'm willing to bet that the largest part of the market is also old enough to carry on buying the niche stuff.

    I'll put some money on that too Abaile, that a lot of the market is older people. If someone were to say that in any other country it would be exaggerated and most likely bullshit, but hey, this IS Japan.

    They're making an anime to show 30 year olds how to date for chrissake. Although it does sound funny.

    And I doubt they will stop making things even if it is "targeted to a younger audience" because adults are interested in the same stuff there and if an underage person really has a problem buying stuff, then how long will it take for them to ask their over 18 year old friend?
