Don't source with sankaku. It's like trying to use Fox news to confirm the existence of a nuclear reactor called "SHIBUYAEGGMAN." There's a factual basis somewhere down there, but the stuff is so sensationalized that it's often just as wrong as calling a nightclub a nuclear reactor.
There's a factual point in that article: a series was not reprinted (this part is noteworthy, btw), ostensibly for containing incestuous content.
Everything else in there is basically hyperbole, which is normal Sankaku stuff.
As I've been saying for months, they'll hit up a few not-so-popular-but-well-known series with the law to show it's not just a token deal, and then its reinforcement will be too much of a hassle and everything will be dropped. Given the methodolgy outlined, there really isn't much of a cause for concern.
That said, it could also be that the publisher tried to drop a well-known title as a measure of good faith to stem off further intervention, which would be a rather unfortunate decision, but also something that makes sense.
As for incest in Japanese literature- yeah, it's been around for ever. Heck, it's in the Genji
, symbolically at least. A literary theme isn't being sealed off, though. Unless you call a single borderline pornographic manga the entirety of literature in every possible medium.
btw, foreign hackers planting false information about Ishihara somewhere would probably validate his racism (he is the guy who wanted to lock up foreigners in the event of a Tokyo earthquake, although that obviously did not happen. We just left on our own -_-;
