So this is basically admitting that the Akihabara mafia is ruining "Cool Japan" for the rest of the country. Rolling Eyes

Mafia? We westerners decide what to take from the sketchy parts of otaku culture, they're not being pushed on us like a dealer holding a gun.

I sometimes can't tell if people are serious or joking.

I plan to visit Japan next year, so I should check out some of the sites, then come back for the Olympics to compare the changes.

walw: They're being pushed on the industry at large which is forced to churn out endless moe crap based off of light novels, instead of being allowed to produce more creative and original works. But that's a type of "censorship" hypocrites like Akamatsu don't talk about.

Apparently otaku have been strong-armed into liking moe. "Buy this figure or I break your legs, capiche?"

You knew this was coming when they won the bid. I wouldn't be surprised if Comiket moved outside of Tokyo altogether. It won't stop doujinshi, just move it underground.

walw: No, I mean the anime industry has been strong-armed by otaku into liking moe. And it's more like, "If you produce anything which doesn't involve cartoon middle-school girls undressing in front of each other, we'll make sure your studio goes under." [See Madhouse and mid-2000s Gonzo.]

That's business, Gatsu. Although, I don't believe your assessment because what continues to be produced seems to completely contradict it. Otherwise, every single anime with zero exceptions would be cute girls doing stupid stuff. That hasn't occurred. Mid-00s GONZO went under because they produced a lot of bad anime that no one wanted, moe or not.

Ok, so then putting an end to creeping out foreign tourists is also business.

You don't notice that Japanese animators are being forced to do their own start-ups and begging American fans for cash for projects, because they've basically been blackballed by the otaku jihad?

Yeah, it's every other anime.
