Manga creator Yuzupon reported on Friday that the print version of the first Welcome to Sugarpot (Sugarpot e Yōkoso) manga volume was withdrawn from bookstores due to Tokyo's ordinances. The book just went on sale on February 15. The manga is set in Sugarpot, an isolated "utopia" by the seaside far from cities. Everyone in this extravagant house except the owner are girls.

Online retailer Amazon removed its listing of this manga volume, even though it was online as recently as two weeks ago. Animate and Neowing still list the volume as available. Yuzupon notes that the manga is still available (link NSFW) in digital format; Tokyo's ordinances do not restrict e-book sales as they do for print.

Personally, I doubt this has anything to do with that stupid law. If it really is, then we would have quite a numbers of series got pull off, and I dont think they're too scare to do that.

In my opinion, there are 3 possible answers:

1. Due to the new governor is That.Old.Geezer right-hand man, some, or a lot of, bookstores suddenly got chilled all of a sudden & decide to do it, just to try not to "violate the law". That's particularly the case with Amazon Japan.

2. They remove it to leave spaces for other more profitable series, like To Love ru Darkness, maybe?

3. Not sure about that, but maybe Yuzupon-sensei suddenly has a cold feet, or just try to make a fuss for marketing him/hershelf?

And I just come up with another possible answer:
The bookstores, or maybe even the publisher, decide to use that stupid ordinances as an excuse to cut off new or less profitable series ---> reduce the cost, focus more on the profitable ones

So what're your opinions, gentlemen? Oh, and sorry for the bad E biggrin

Edit: A little correction, guys. After looking for a little sample of this series digital version (still available here: http://www.dmm.co.jp/en/digital/book/-/detail/=/cid=b400ffbap00 132/), in my opinion, this is basically MORE hentai than even To Love ru Darkness or Kiss x sis biggrin
