You're welcome! lol! When I first read this, I was so scared and confused too, but then I read this article(which is full of misinformation) and other ones as well as some of the comments. This law just means that things with violence, sex, crime, homosexuality, etc. will have to be labeled 18+ because it would be a bad influence on their younger (17 and below) people.

Thank you again!^^ Labeling is not banning! The fake articles almost caused me heart-attack!

I'm not agree with them the sexual related (all kind of sexuality) things have a bad influence. On the contrary, the missing of good sexual culture make youths so aggressive and complexed. It is like to hide them from the human nature. Also not every love manga is with sex scenes, yaoi and yuri are different from shounen-ai and shoujo-ai.

Not much will change, though I won't ask anyone to stop worrying. It's your privilege, and I envy the passion some show in their reactions.

I encourage everyone (truly worried) to research more about the actual ban law before jumping to conclusions.

Manga exist since the beginning of the last century. Yaoi exists since 40 years. And japans criminality wasn´t effected at all by this. They don´t forbid comics in the US, so why should they stop one of the most profitable things japan creates? Did he ever get to know how much money manga & anime make in japan and international?
This is madness!

I understand why would some people be so worried about this, because it WILL affect m&a industry somehow. And probably not in any good way, but i'm sure it won't be as tragic as many of You think.
No other choice but to wait and see.

P.S.: I still think japanese are weirdest beings this world has to offer tho. ^^

Quote from lambchopsil
The mastermind behind this is Tokyo Governor Shintarō Ishihara, who blatantly shows no care for the illustrated entertainment industry. He claims that the law is to protect the youth of japan, yet he himself is the author of a series of schoolgirl gang rape novels.


Yes, the law proved he was thinking with his ass. And he's Tokyo's Governor??
I'm sure he just want to get more money (illegal) or to raise his reputation. Politics, just the way it is..

Just a moment ago, we hate publisher because of scanlator issues, and now we support them for the sake of manga?
Life really is unpredictable.

now he stated that people who produce materials like this and the people who read it have wrapped DNA! Someone call a doctor to check his head, i think this guy has gone insane.
Anyways, when will the nect primeminister of japan be voted? I hope the next one cancels this law as his first act as pimeminister

Just read this statement of Ishihara:

“old women who live after
they have lost their reproductive function are useless and are committing a
sin.”

It is a sin to liveconfusedconfused And he's still a governor of Tokyo? This racist, sexist and homophobe?

Taken from here:

What about old men (like him) that "have lost their reproductive function"? They don't commit a sin because "men are the higher dominating breed, which live to rule the world" and the "women are additions that become useless after they give birth to the children of the higher breed"?

To all men here: Sorry, I don't mean offend you but him. Just trying to see why he doesn't point "old men" too.

~~~
Japanese Prime Minister Kan Naoto mentioned the boycott of Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF) by manga publishers in the official blog and said "It's important to promote Japanese anime to the world as well as to maintain the education of children. I want the people involved to work together to avoid cancellation of TAF."
~~~

But what does this mean - he is againts the bill or he is against the boycott?

As long as the PM is a Democrate and Ishihara is Conservative I deeply hope he means the first.
