Three years ago, the Diet of Japan was faced with a petition for a new, harsher law against child pornography, that would have also incriminated 2D materials such as anime, manga and eroge. At that time, the Diet chose to "investigate" (a.k.a. ignore) the matter for three years - and all was good... until now. But time's up, and Japan's pesky Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) is once again pushing for such a legislation, as they did back then.

Nitou Oumono wa Ittou mo Ezu loli

In their latest anti-loli crusade, the LDP - together with their usual coalition partners, the Koumeito (the political party of a Buddhist cult) - want to explicitly include anime and manga in the definition of what can constitute "child pornography", arguing that they, too, promote crimes against children and thus should be banned. A bullshit statement, to say the least, though I won't go over the obvious counter-arguments, all over again...

For the time being, at least, the ruling Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) is opposing this bill. But let's not forget that they also opposed Tokyo's infamous "nonexistent youths" bill at first, only to support it later on... Leading, among others, to the great schism between Tokyo's Metropolitan Government, and anime / manga creators last winter (and the anger rages on).

No doubt we'll hear more about this... Until then, fingers crossed!

Why do people keep doing this? and who are the people who keep bring this up?
and by the way is this the doing of a religious group?

Why is it that people always look down at us otaku's that is some thing I don't get why are people always looking down at us what did we do to them we can't help the fact that we love anime and games and why do people have a bad image for us in their head that's just load of crap to me now and to me if they dont like us they can just deal

and it not like we are going hurt people in any way because most of us like 2D girls or 2D women or 2D loli's its not like real ones can be as cute as 2D ones thats a real fact their and if they can't deal that then all I can say for those people who have it in for us otaku's they can go to jigokuhen for all I care

and jigokuhen means Hell and it's thanks to Bleach that I learned that

Don't they have more important crimes to address, like kidnappings, unsolved murder cases, drug smuggling, or human trafficing? OH... that's right.. those issues are too hard to tackle, so lets do something easy shall we? ooh.. ohh, I know! Everyday this thing called anime is committing fictional crimes! You are so smart! Why didn't I think of that!

Lolicon is technically a form of art as long as no real children are involved so at least in the U.S it cant be outlawed.I'm not sure about Japans laws though.
Fariswrote on Nov 2, 2011 at 09:26
"in the U.S it cant be outlawed" - you'd be amazed...
Ultimawrote on Nov 6, 2011 at 04:11
In the U.S. banning it would break an amendment.(I think the first amendment.)

As far as I am concerned Lolicon is bullshit!!! And the Japanese should pass the law. Why should perverts be allowed to do it in any form. I am all for adults doing weird shit because they want to, free will and all. I am one of those people who like to do what they want no matter what, but do not get children involved. Seeing lolicon on the shelves of a book store makes kids think that is is natural to let someone take advantage of them. It is not right!!!
Ultimawrote on Nov 24, 2011 at 20:36
As I said that only counts for real people banning animated lolicon in the U.S. breaks the 1st amendment.
