[b]There is also some doubt as to whether Comiket will be able to be held under the new regulations[/b] – if not, its cancellation or removal to another prefecture seems likely, although a lack of sufficiently large spaces may severely complicate this.

It appears a new law passed in Tokyo Japan which will greatly hurt the whole adult anime, manga, and gaming scene there and in the rest of the country. Apparently one of the politicians backing this has rape novels which go untouched by such laws.

Quote

The revised law now demands a restriction on sales of anime, manga or games which “improperly glorify or emphasise” illegal sexual acts, such as rape, groping, BDSM, voyeurism, exhibitionism, etc., by extension including underage sexual activity as well.

Looks kind of dumb to me. I can understand the underage thing...but as long as rape is fantasy and not reality, no one's getting hurt.

Some people just need to "chillax."

People are constantly getting their heads ripped off in manga or end up getting their limbs cut off, yet I rarely see someone moan about such elements. And if someone does complain, the reasoning never extends to a conscious general population.
