The thing that shocks me the most is that someone remembered that The Skull Man anime existed long enough to put it on a list.

Ironically, I wonder if these bans will actually spur interest in the series.

I was thinking the exact same thing. And then they put it on the list. Really? I need to go watch it again, and several others on that list.

Ah yes, once again freedom of expression is destroyed by a nanny-state government.

If anything, the ban will probably only make the titles more sought after. Which is a good thing since most titles on the list are great.

Actually, there is one good thing that came out of this. China will never have to see School Days ever again.

Nowhere near as scary as the Chinese government. Any citizen speaking out against the government there is practically guaranteed a death sentence.

If I understand correctly, China's far more torture than community service, so probably not alot.

Okay, but Inferno Cop? Really? Let's be real here, is it really necessary to ban a comedy anime where the characters are literally paper cutouts on sticks?
