Has there ever been an anime/manga controversy that sparked on national airwaves?? Besides lolicon.
What shows would you recommend to O'Reily?
I know the pokemon seizure,the girl with an axe,something illegal
I had an ultraconservative uncle that watched O'Reilly like gospel. He absolutely loved the Metal Gear Solid games. Something similar in anime form maybe.
Why? The children deserved it for disrespecting their elders who worked hard to gain their positions and were under no obligation to take care of them.
MGS is also one of those sorts of games where you could easily take away whichever message you wanted if you looked at it with a big enough bias. the viewer can decide on what's done straight and what was parody, etc.
Pretty sure that's the only anime that got national coverage, but I remember my local news doing a segment on some manga issues because they showed a girl's panties and boobs. Some parents probably kicked up a storm
Yeah, outside of Pokemon (which was hardly about the anime side of it), I only think anime will get thrown in the generic perverted or violent pool for the monthly "think of the children" story on the news.
damn shame 2 was his last passion game
You have the classic pokemon one where set off ADHD kids
then you have kokoro connect that bullied one VA and 2ch went for blood since bullying is taboo on nipland
Only thing I can think of are the anime cancelled due to national events. IIRC of Higurashi was delayed because of a similar violent thing happening. Nice Boat too.
But that's kind of the reverse situation.
You need something with a narcissistic main character that he can insert into, either of his characters from Those Who Trespass. I'd actually suggest Death Note if Light had won.
I remember that outburst on CBS in 1996.
FUCK IT! FUCKING THING DOESN'T WORK!
subject matter inappropriate for young minds or some shit, you know, usual PTA stuff. Also teachers would complain because the series got so popular they found their students would put the wrong name of the historical characters on history tests.
Also gintama is close to kintama, which means testicles. Of course someone's gonna complain.
PTA in Japan are pretty insane. I heard a story of them combing the streets of Japan on a Saturday of a 3 day weekend at 7PM urging kids to go home. If the kids were with their parents they'd tell the parents that "That's not okay", basically. I'd hate to go to school in Japan.
>tfw Japan knows how disable a portion of a nation's youth through a standard television set
There's that Otaku Murderer case. The Genshiken mangaka mentioned it as a traumaticizing experience for already stigmatized otaku culture.
In the past couple of years, Japan has been cracking down harder on P2P sharing, and convictions for uploaders tend to get on evening news.
Not technically Anime, but I remember the RapeLay thing exploding a few years ago. It caused Illusion to pull it from their library and refuse to acknowledge its existence anymore.
