    They're banned from the general section and forced to be put with the adult section. It's not a ban on having the content period. I'd wager that it'd be a very big issue from here on out.

    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?
    Considering there's a somewhat comparable situation in America an it's possible heavy censorship of violent video games, it's actually a big deal. It can become a very big issue with the new ban.

    Why does that matter exactly?

    I'm betting that if they want to make more money, they'll start changing things. It's also not the first time, for instance that publishers change content in order to be more "tasteful" to broader audiences. Mangakas have actually left publishers for forcing them to self censor their mangas before. Plus considering how crappy most mangakas, animators, and video game makers get treated over there, you really think this is going to benefit them?

    I bet all this manga/anime ban crap originated from Sankaku lol.

    I think it did, certainly all the Baaawwwww threads I saw on on /a/ were only linking to the sankaku article.
