You clearly don't understand how the industry works. He's not getting any more money then he already did.

That's not true at all. He IS still making more money after this.

Though last I checked, he served his punishment long ago.

Nobuhiro Watsuki, who created Rurouni Kenshin, was charged with and admitted to possession of child pornography in late 2017.

(Edited to reflect who I meant to reply to)

this is terrible! But given One Piece is given a free pass (Oda and all), I guess it's fair game.

So what's the problem? He committed a crime, was charged for it, and did his penalty. Should he never be allowed to do his job anymore (or take money for past work)?

Shueisha still works with Watsuki not to mention the new adaptations that come out but Idon't see you bitching about that.

I just want a disk re-release, dammit. Although since it's an Aniplex show I guess I can kiss that thought goodbye.
