taliban fundamentalism

I thought you might be interested in the info, Japan has changed his regulations against ero games

First it was to add opposition to lolicon (fine with me), but it ended in forbidding almost everything but the missionary position (yikes).

You’ll find more info on SankakuComplex, and now, the main question is : will that shit also spread to the regulations against h-movies and h-mangas ? Pray not :(

Forget not to mention that even a publisher already put an ip-block to exclude foreigners for protecting cultural propose. What a nonsense -_-

This is also a blow for the general freedom of speech and art.
When you have opened one hole for banning something, soon more things follow.
A sad day for not only people who like to play erotic japanese games, but also for the general freedom of expression.

Do you think this will even last though? If the market suddenly fails on them, they really have no choice but to repeal it or else things will go to hell. And you know, why do they have a problem with this and not the other way around?

Fear rules. They have to blame something for rapes and such. They’re attacking the wrong medium. Who’s being hurt by drawings? But hey, it’s easier to attack a corporation than to try and get the “real” rape videos and pictures off the net. Drawings = fantasy (no one gets hurt). If you’re being influence by drawings to commit acts of brutality… or force yourself on a woman because you just saw a drawing… then you already had a screw loose. Banning this will do nothing good. It’ll just create a black market…

So this is only for H games? I agree with the poster above that it wont stay for long if the sales fall, unless those japanese pervs wont really give a shit lol. Atleast its not a ban on positions in H manga. Thatd be a pain.

If these regulations stay – they will, sooner or later, spread to Manga and Anime and in Japans current financial Situation it would be devastating.
hundreds – if not thousands – of workers will lose their job…

I just see a new kind of black market rising, hahaha but being more serious, I agree with Bluesophia, banning things looks fine until you start losing money for it and I dont think that the companies like it.

And if you get influenced by drawins to do acts of brutality well…you are fuck up.

Either way, banning lolis, rape and whatnot won’t do them any good, you gotta be dammed certain of at least that. Some tittles with those material in them have really dammed good stories going for them.

Feminists strikes back!!! They’ll ban even the “reverse” raping and assault (girl raping a boy). It’ll be a punch in the face of Japan’s economy.

If it exist is because someone will buy it. It’s elemental marketing. So if loli, raping and other subjects in H-Games exist is because there are people who buy it.

Why exactly is society still walking backwards when it comes to sex? Rather than ban drawings of sex shouldn’t they focus on cracking down on things like rapists (Rapists by the way receive on average less prison time than pot smokers or your common purse snatcher) and networks that promote destribution of child pornography or incentivate illegal actions like pedophilia? This is no different than banning video games simply because their moral content is objectionable. Conservatives really do know how to fuck up this world.

first thing that came to my mind: WHAT. THE. FUCK.

i mean, other than the fact that it really is nothing more than a god damn infringement of the freedom of expression, the stated motivation behind all of this masquerade is nothing short of stupid. if i was to make an analogy, i’d say that it’s like all of a sudden banning all knives because people could use them for killing. like many others have said, the real reason for doing this is actually the fact that they are a bunch of frustrated obsolete shut-ins who have no actual idea of how the world works in the era of the internet, and are too stubborn to admit it. on the other hand it’s always much easier to blame all of the flaws of society on something localized and admittedly morally questionable, than to actually go out there and deal with the actual perpetrators. “oh, let’s just drop giant emp bombs all over the world so that the terrorists won’t be able to communicate, thus eradicating all forms of organized terrorism!” way to go fucktards, just ignore the fact that you’re destroying the whole modern world for a small problem that could be addressed way more effectively hands on, but would require you to get off your asses and get it done. Third, why most “grown ups” (parents or people who describe themselves as responsible – i.e in favor of censorship) will never let go of this is because once dropping this farce, the blame will (and should be) placed on them. why do people do crazy/sick things? because of some jap dude drawing some chick getting hammered by 3 aliens? or because they fucked up raising their kids? i mean, there’s plenty of us who have weird fetishes (raep, loli, guro, etc) but don’t do the same shit in real life because we’re fucking capable of distinguishing it from fantasy. because we were thought right from wrong. if you fail at raising your kid, it’s ALWAYS easier to point fingers at porn (or anything else really, it’s just ridiculous) and say:”look, that destroyed my little kid, whom i educated so flawlessly till now!” If someone really gets influenced by eroge/h-manga/hentai and does fuck up, then it means he was so mentally labile that he could have been influenced by virtually anything, ranging from silence of the lambs, tales of the brothers grimm, all the way down to tom and jerry. Furthermore, if someone really felt the need for loli raep, wouldn’t it be better to just let him jack off in front of the computer than go as a tutor in a kindergarden and make a all-you-can-rape buffet? identical to the ingame violence rage a few years ago: if i feel like bashing someones head in, woulkd you prefer to give me some teletubbies game whose cd i’d use to slit the throat of the next best person or just let me fukking play bloodrayne and dismember some virtual nazi butt? Yeah, sure, police found in a rapists home rape vids, and in a murderers appartment violent video games – logical conclusion: the vids/games turned two respectable citizens into vicious monstes, omg! right sherlock, but how bout this: maybe they had those BECAUSE they were sickos and not vice-versa. it’s like saying you get hungry because you just yelled at your wife “go make me a sammich, bitch!”

if you’ll pardon me, i’m going back to fapping to olivers latest upload before some dipshit politician decides that i can’t touch my cock anymore because that’ll make me a pervert.

Not that surprising. I always assumed that one day in the future all nations will be incredibly strict on everything, and I always assumed that most rights and freedoms will be abolished in the future to ‘protect’ society.

This saddens me.

I mean, hasn’t ero games really gotten pretty good lately?

What the point of restricting the position of sex?
Unrealistic? That’s kind of funny.

Everyone is freedom of speech, jobs, blah blah blah, but what about the artwork? It seems to fall under speech, but I don’t consider it the same. A freedom and a symbol of love, art, intimacy, is not the same. I enjoy their work. I really hope that people just learn to admire the writing, the art, the feeling that goes in to making something like this. It truly is the romance of ‘dark’ desires.

After reading a bit more, I believe this isn’t a real law, only a regulation this organization has, will, or is planning on imposing to all game makers under it.

Which is to say, not being an actual law, said game makers will probably leave such organization in order to ditch the restrictions.

I mean, I don’t think they can sell any eroges depicting little more than normal sex in missionary position. So unless they’re planning on going unemployed, they’ll ditch EOCS.

Besides, I believe there’s a protest scheduled for Comiket, so hopefully it won’t even come to that.

So many companies will bankrupt with that. And fapping to something you do in real life is truly boring. Now the sims is an hentai game…

Eh, c’est la vie, no? True, it sucks, but aren’t we all being a little melodramatic?

I doubt this will be the end of free expression. Besides, when you regulate things that shouldn’t be regulated, those things and the people who enjoy them tend to find a way.

i don’t believe that they will go much farther because their is a large audience for hentai in japan as a result of a really big anime loving crowd in japan i mean they don’t have that much to work with after you take the anime and vid games that they have only a part of so they need to keep their people happy and if they do forbid the hentai the hentai will move its a good pornographic industry and lets hope that appends cause id say that if hentai would leave japan it would go the America where it wont have censorship will be in English and we will get all the good from it (if you think about it the people in japan will prefer to let hentai be then to loos a part of what makes them so good like anime) and last HOW THE HELL DOSE A COUNTRY THAT SAYS PROSTITUTION IS OK CAN SAY PORNOGRAPHY ISN’T

There is a touch of fortuitousness in all of this.
The Japanese government are not the ones who decided to do all this.
It is the result of one of the ratings bureaus falling to pressure from feminazi groups.
Fortunately there are several ratings groups in Japan that handle adult games, none of seem eager to follow suit as of yet.

Often times, groups like feminists really don’t do an ounce of good because all of their pent up hate and frustrations are directed at the closest target rather than the real problem. Lacks logic. Very right wing. Reminds me of Jack Thompson but only if he had actually been taken seriously.

“…the only major omission is homosexuality.”

I don’t mind omitting Homosexuality, but you shouldn’t ban anything, but that sounds like pandering.

WTF? Why ero-games? Simple. It probably has something to do with old people presuming any form of ‘video game’ MUST be for children and teens. Fucking bastards.

It also of course, has something to do with Feminist Groups, who, stupid as ever, act like games and fantasies actually mean that men are going to become women beating, child raping, gore loving men. I’m sure these women wont try to ban Soaps for portraying adultery, would they? I am so tired of the politically correct bullshit…

If people don’t like these games,
!!!DON’T BUY THEM!!! Duh. You aren’t forced to see this, and if you think it causes men to rape, you must really think men are stupid.

The first thing we should remember is the number of times that things like these have been said before. Feminists, banners, and all those conservative people have always been threatening everyone about the dangers of “Strange things” that can be seen through internet. Even if, as Ero-otoko said, they actually ban all those contents, publishers are going to find a way to make even better new material, as they already know that the truly big markets don´t stay in one country. We all know the big changes that have been going on in Japan, such as globalization, that made them recover from their economic crisis in the 90´s. In fact, it could even be a great oportunity for non-japanese publishers and leechers to discover new ways to get rid of old problems, as happened with heavily censored porn from 10-15 years ago. If people wouldn´t have gotten tired of it, wonders such as Ares, Limewire, or the new type of Google (The old type didn´t recognize porn sites) wouldn´t exist. So, at least for now, we shouldn´t worry for a massive economic disaster in Japan due to the lack of Eroge, now should we? =D

I’d like to put a point of opposition, well more a suggested clarification. Please use radical feminism as opposed to general feminism. There are major philosophical shizams and it hurts the feminism in general to automatically substitute the terms. Use wiki for a general overview.

This has been a public service message. =)

Severe Bondange, LOLI, Stranglement I can understand. BUT NEAR EVERYTHING ELSE?

For the record I’m NOT SUPRISED by this I heard several news stories of murders in Japan by Otaku crazed guys in the subway. Even MSN reported about a stalker game it was getting a bit excessive.

Preventing REAL WOMEN VIOLENCE IS GREAT. But what pisses me off about the radical Feminists is that they won’t stop until they get EVERYTHING! Just ban the LOLI Games, stalking, hard core rape (not cosplay fake rape though) in the video games but everything else? I mean come on they need to COMPROMISE and work out a middle ground.

In all honesty this might sound like it will do something big, but it cannot do certain things.
Yes I might prevent new games under this genre being publicly released, however it cannot stop games, movies, manga that have already been released on the internet. It also cannot prevent the producers from releasing games online out of view of public eye (Unfortunetly might make it harder for us to get free games, but to combat this I might be willing to shell out money).

I seem to remember a similar event happening in America some time ago called the prohibition. All it did was raise crime rates due to the law against alcohol, and it really just corrupted officers of the law more then anything. I honestly think that is is just a prohibition phase and will quickly be removed when the Japanese economy starts to take a hit from this. But then again this might be hopeful wishing.

I agree with sadley. Just banning things doesn’t really solve anything. It just like trying to get rid of a weed in a flower gardem. You can get rid of the flowers (porn, hentai etc), but it wont solve the problem. If you remove the root of the weed (the real problem), the weed won’t grow back. In the end you’ll have a nice flower garden again :D

Hey hey! Back up a minute!… Prostitution is only legal if it isn’t vaginal (or anal? I’m not sure) intercourse… ’cause none of that counts as sex, so it’s not prostitution, right?

Kenta: “Missionary position? Those sick fucks!”

I also find it ironic that many rail against content censorship, except for genres that displease you (*cough* loli, guro, yaoi, etc *cough*). Any censorship justified to ‘protect’ a population is a moral arguement and therefore an invalid arguement. After all, one could argue on moral grounds that ANY suggestive material is immoral and should be censored, but that of course is crap. The ideas presented, even in the worst of genres, are presented on a daily basis in real life in the media, so any fantasy outlet is a mute influence.

In short, you can’t be against censorship if you want to censor a genre that you don’t like. Any creatitive censorship, regardless of how it offends you, is a compromise.

Aside from the obvious stupidity, what grates my nerves more is how the taliban marched into Japan, complained about how they did things and changed ero games to fit what their religion allows. (I'm very sorry if that is not the case)

what'll they do next, try and ban sex in real life unless its in the missionary position.
