I don't get what the problem is here?

I can't tell if you read the sarcasm? Exclamation

I meant like those eroge with the girls who look, talk and act like 6th graders but are totally undeveloped, not so bright 18 year olds who have been in grade school that long

Why should that series even be restricted in the first place?

Because it's tacky and tasteless.

You mean like how GI Joe is tacky and tasteless and teaches bad ethics with its absurd morality, and thus should be restricted under the law?

There's a time and a place for everything. And what who does with what manga isn't anybody's business unless they make it a business.

Ah yes, the true, liberty for me but not for thee, ideological authoritarian. Because you or anyone else in should have the liberty to dictate the "time and place" for other people to conduct their voluntary affairs.

I don't know what goes through the heads of people when they say, "Oh, this story about some sexualized little girl(s) in compromising positions shouldn't be R-rated!"

Funny, because if the law actually did treat it as we would R-rated, it would NOT be restricted like it is.

But, as you can see, this type of logic doesn't work on the non-otaku.

Right, as if your "free to do what I say" is anymore logical.

It hurts profits, makes such materials harder to access, and makes some vendors reluctant to put it in stock....and it's not even pornographic.

So, basically, you're saying "kids should buy borderline kiddie-porn." Nice one. Cool

Sigh. If you had read it's not even "borderline", unless you're a victorian prude. It's a damn gag comedy. And yeah, so-called "kids" who are in fact young adults, who can think for themselves should have also have the right to participate in free speech. They in fact, also partake in the creation side with their own doujins and artwork. Maybe you should try to argue directly against the all the angry teens themselves, who sent letters to Ishihara protesting the law.
Not even US federal courts, agree with your so-called reasoning.

So the question I wanna ask: Why are the critics (and other viewers) blamed when it's mainly the fault of the creators for not thinking situations all the way through? Sad

Yeah let's make every title conform to the giving the correct impression, such that any cover or promotion shall hereby prevent Lord Tyrenol from making any wrong assumptions.


"Hell no. / We weren't asking you."

Wait, who is this "we" you speak of. Oh, I see, someone made something you don't like. And I didn't get the memo stating that there's a right way and a wrong way to be creative. Likewise I didn't know there was one valid way to use our imagination.

Seriously... There are those of us who want "dull realistic series in a down to earth realistic setting that can easily be replicated with live-actors" in anime form.

and you do exactly get those type of shows. All The Time. Several a year. But hey, don't let your hate blind you.

In fact, we wanna see more "counter-programming." We want for creators to break away from the same, tired formula of otaku-pandering; to be proved that "the animu industry's means to survive financially" is not "the rules written in stone."

"Hey everyone's brainwashed! Quick, we must institute some counter programming to bring everyone back in line!" Oh the ironic tribalism.

Here's a Protip then: People who don't paint targets on themselves usually don't get shot at. Nobody's telling you what you should or shouldn't do. Just; don't complain when you painfully receive new holes.

"The beatings will continue until moral improves!" More fuking ironic hypocrisy. How nice of you to allow us to be free while threatening to shoot us for it.

No point in arguing with trolls. No matter what you say, they'll just keep sticking to their invented point because they like to argue. It's just best to ignore them.
