Banned by General-RADIX Banned by General-RADIX
So, there was this anime/manga ban proposed by Shintaro Ishihara (who is a horrible person, but more on that later), designed to eliminate certain content (most of it sexual) from the two mediums. Real-person stuff is okay though, for some reason.

It was passed into law on December 15th. That is, today.

It won't go into effect until July 2011, but Panty and Stocking here are already counting down the days until they're either canceled or retooled. Given the nature of the show, probably the former.


Now, remember Ishihara? He hates homosexuals, foreigners, manga-ka, and anyone else who's not voting for him (I'm assuming that last one, but honestly, will anyone in the first and last group vote for him after this?) He also wrote a book containing much of the same content that his new law prohibits, up to and including gang rape (but apparently no gay stuff because that would be, you know, gross). HE IS A DAMNED HYPOCRITE.


Seems a lot of people on Pixiv agree with the much shorter description I had for this pic over there. Two favs in 110 views already--very unusual for my art.

*sigh* 2011 is gonna suck.

Is he the reason the show got cancelled early?

It's possible; financial issues might've also contributed to that.

Ugh I hate Senator Ishihara. I'm not a fan of Panty and Stocking, in fact I downright hate it, but I still like this drawing for what it represents.

Thanks. :)

If he's not already out of office, I hope he loses it soon; all this "banned" stuff pales in comparison to some of the other things I heard he'd said around that time.

I dunno if there was a proper PSG manga, actually; the "manga ban" affected anime as well, and I just used Panty and Stocking as an example of a series that might suffer because of it.

(Though in retrospect, I dunno how widely-enforced the ban actually was.)

I hated Ishihara until he said "Vending machine and Pachinko should stop being!".
It may good thing for save electricity.:p

P.S:I'm not saying I start to support him. Agreed with banning Otaku laws. I still don't like him.

L2READ BILL.

Not saying that Shintaro Ishihara isn't a fuck head but fyi, Panty and Stocking already have a 'mature content' label on it so there for, I'm pretty sure that they are safe.

Before you freak out, might want to do a little bit more research. While your at it, taking language, politics and social norms into contexts might be a good idea.

Sorry I don't mean to sound snotty but it really rubs me the wrong way when people see just a few words and don't take the whole of the situation into account, especially if they don't have an understanding of the political environment or the social structure that they are bitching about.

But hey, it's nice to see that you are so worried about a bill that wont effect you in any way shape or form, and that you feel for the little thirteen year olds in a specific spot in Tokyo that wont get their porn of dick girls. Good for you.

Firstly, I did read the bill, or what my sources posted of it, at least.

Secondly, my problem is not that the little thirteen-year-olds won't be getting their porn; it's because an entire medium of art is getting shafted on flimsy pretenses, AND anyone who doesn't tow the party line will be publicly humiliated.

Maybe it won't affect me or anyone else in the US, but if nothing else--I've spoken to a couple of fellow Pixiv members on this subject, and I think it'd be incredibly dickish of me to go down the "who cares about your problems, get me a beer" route.

(And no, all this censorship won't force studios to make something "meaningful", because that is not how censorship works.)
