I think these should also be cancelled in America D;, that would be extremely creepy if you see some older aged guy wearing this shirt, but if they are printed in Japanese-Text then I they can keep it ... not many americans would even know what it means so lets the weirdo be a weirdo without people having to give stairs protecting their kids.

Ladies and gentlemen,
It is with a sad regret I inform you we are currently out of popcorn. The supplier did not arrive this morning and stock has been depleted.

We apologize for this inconvenience and hope you can enjoy the forthcoming posts without snacks to enjoy along with the statements guaranteed to make you laugh, if not cry.

To make up for our inability to serve you refreshments during this time, please accept our 10% off future purchases by using the code "LOLICON POSTS ARE GREAT".

We hope to see you in the future, so please sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

Sincerely,
The Management

I'm pretty sure they'll be others to make 'Primary School Girls Are Great' T-shirts. It's not like anyone owns the exclusive rights over the sentence 'Primary School Girls Are Great'.

Yes it is awful news. I would have worn the shirt....just not in public that is and maybe once I lived on my own where no once else could see me during the day.

I'm trying the code but it's not working. Anime cry

It goes without saying why they were cancelled.
But I could guarantee you that 45% the people would need to look twice at the wording on the grounds that nobody uses the term "primary school" much anymore in the US. Now if we were to outright say "Elementary School" then we would see something interesting coming out of this.

A true tragedy indeed. So many people will go un-mocked at AX next year. I shall have to find another horribly ill-thought out shirt to add to my Otaku Bingo card instead.

I'm still gonna get one of the english ones AND wear it in public. I could care less if people have a problem with it. Let 'em say something and see what happens.
