The official website for Jump SQ magazine has announced on Monday that the Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan - Hokkaido-hen manga by Nobuhiro Watsuki and Kaoru Kurosaki will resume serialization in this year's July issue of the magazine, which will be released on June 4. The manga went on a hiatus in December of last year due to charges against Watsuki for violating the Child Prostitution and Pornography Law a month earlier. Watsuki has been called to pay the fine of two hundred thousand yen this February.

Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan - Hokkaido-hen began its serialization last September and is a sequel to the popular series Rurouni Kenshin. The prequel received multiple anime adaptations throughout the '90s.

Did he really just have 200 000 000 yen just laying around? I know RK is a fairly successful manga but it’s not like One Piece or something.

It’s no wonder that every shitty Shonen Jump manga goes on forever when their authors make that kind of money.

Imagine being a mangaka who finally hits your big break and scores a spot in Weekly Shonen Jump. All you gotta do is write some dumb Shonen story for 5-6 years and then you’ll be making RK money. Then imagine getting cancelled after like 3 chapters like so many of them do lmao.

Until Watsuki clear his name, i wouldn't recommend coming back from hiatus, or at least, have just Kurosaki working on it.

I don't care about RK, but I will say this. Americans and Western Europeans are to paranoid about such things... Stop mixing people's interests and the things they create!

I don't care if some author or director is nazi, likes CP or in constant war with feminists. As long as his cretions are good, I won't sabotage them just because the author done something inappropriate. It is a really stupid thing, though, very common in the West.

There is nothing stupid about holding creators to a higher standards especially when it comes to things that ruin or have ruined peoples lives. In Watsuki's case we aren't talking about 2D loli hentai, but stuff that involve real children. The former wouldn't have been a good look, but at least it's a imagined fantasy. It's not just western morality thing either, there are people in Japan unhappy about this decision there too. At the end of day this all just been done for money and unfortunately people with deep pockets or extreme fans don't care until something happens to them or family member. But since sends a single there are no consequences for this stuff tough luck for victims eh? Might as well make every other heinous else okay becasue "this guy does good stories". =/

He's not saying that content creators shouldn't be held accountable for crimes they commit. He's saying that people should be willing to seperate an artist from his/her creations.

It is incredible difficult to separate an artist from his art and this is why this discussion seems to never stop. If you are enjoying it, that's okay - but everyone feels different about it. One of the main problems is the support, you are willing to give to the artist. Let it be emotional (if it makes you feel sth, you might get the urge to talk about it with others, therefore the popularity rises) or material support (by buying their stuff and supporting them in a monetary way). And if you do that, it might let you feel like being a part of that criminal construct, by indirectly accepting what he did and still support him no matter what (metaphorical speaking here). Sure, there are still many instances laying between the artist and the consumer, and one single person might not make an impact. But discussions like this might be able to lead to bigger impulses.

Art is art and you can look at it as an artwork alone without any context. That's up to the observer. But you can also look at the context/intentions/whatever of the artist as well, and this makes this discussion around art a way more complex thing, than just a simple black and white portrayal.

He did not ruin anyone lives. The people who ruin others lives are the ones who crete CP and the ones who allow children to star there, not the pepole who watch it. It is one more point where you mixng things. Arresting or blaming people who watch such things will not change the general situation. It is the same as with drugs: criminals are not the people who use them, but the people who produse or sell them.

I don't know if it is the nergative effect of feminists influence or some other things but pedohystery is to strong in some countries.

Pedos are like drug addicts. They are just ill and there is no effective therapy for it.

Instead of putting every drug addict in jail, in civilized countries they are provided with replasment drugs like methadon which are less harmful, but allow them to keep their addioction in check. Same should be done with pedos. Just let them watch hentai or cartoons. It will not harm anyone but will allow tham to keep thair addiction in check. Think of them as of the ill people, not criminals.

It is disappointing that all that CP gets you is having to pay 2,000 dollars. That's not even treating it like a criminal act, but as some kind of luxury good that isn't problematic, just expensive...

That's a shit comparison tbh. Drug users just hurt themselves and don't create the demand for a despicable industry. CP consumers create the demand and give the people creating them a financial inentive to so do in the first place, that's how these things work. If noone paid for watching them, nobody would bother creating them. They create the market, they are just as much to blame as the actual creators. There's so much loli porn out there too, there's really no excuse for consuming and probably paying for actual CP.

I don't care about people being pedophiles, that's not a crime, but I care if they consume CP. That's a crime, should be a crime and needs to be punished in a way that's actually punishment. Just like being addicted to drugs isn't a crime, but a lot of things that drug addicts do are crimes, and they can just be excused because they're addicted if they rob someone or steal stuff. There's not a civilized country that doesn't convict drug addicts if they actually commit crimes, even if they have programs for helping them. Some things just aren't excusable no matter your 'condition'.

Nope. Drug industry works absolutely the same way. You just have double-stabdards.

No, I'm pretty sure you just don't really think thinks through otherwise you'd be cringing from saying something stupid like that. You don't produce drugs by fucking children in front of a camera against their will, raumatizing them for life. You make them with agriculture and chemical processes that in themselves are not immoral, traumatic or harmful, or even illegal, unlike anything that involved CP. Drugs are frowned upon because of their consequences can be harmful to the people who take them (usually out of their own free will), but it's not inherently immoral or anywhere near as universally condemned (the legal status of drugs is debatable depending on the country, but I don't think child porn is debatable anywhere) as CP, and that's how it should be. Drugs can have negative consequences but they are essentially a choice, while CP is raping children to exploit them financially.

It's very, very, very disturbing that you would put those two things on the same level. Like honestly, it creeps me out thinking about someone out there thinking childporn is on the same level as selling or smoking weed.

I'm going to say this but de-criminalizing CP would probably go far to end its production, just like illicit drugs.

Your mind is corrupted by feminists.

1. A lot more crime happens because of drugs.
2. We are talking about people who watch CP now, not about the ones who cretes it.
3. It is debateble if all CP is rape.You know, some third-rate countries have digfferent moral and some children just prefer to work this way for living.
4. Using your logic a lot of drugs are made using the slave labor both to producer and to illegally transport them.
5. Once again, you are trying to direct thingas in different direction. People who watch CP are sick, same as drug addicts. What way need is to have a therapy, not to be put in jail or at the bottom of society like you want it to be.

All this stuff gets created because people buy it.
Because people buy drugs, there are people who make them.
Because there are people who buy child porn even though it's immoral, there are people who will film them and distribute them thru any means.

As long as there's demand there'll be someone who will make a demanded product, no matter what it is.
If there would be no demand, there would be no products created and no one would get hurt but sadly it's not the case here.
So both, the creator, and those that contribute its creator by buying it are at fault.
They support the "industry" or private persona by buying their products.

Besides, if you catch someone who bought illegal items, you have a chance to catch distributors and maybe even creators.

I would never place drugs on the same level as CP tho.
One is an act of consuming goods that were created to bring certain psychical effect to the user. These products are created by either planting and taking care of specific plants and later refining them into consumables or by having chemicals involved.
Second is an act of watching specific kind of porn involving minors, usually at age not suited for such action. These products are created by having someone get a human with or without certain features who is at the age that counts them as minority by any means and having them to perform sexual acts with other people. If a subject is not cooperating, they will threatened, beat up or drugged.

First may or may not be legal depending on place and the amount one buys / consumes while the second is illegal in more than half countries.

1. There are more people doing trash while being high than there are people who have any connections to CP? No shit.
Drugs are often easily available at what I personally consider low price. There are a lot of reasons why someone takes drugs and whatever or not he cares about his body limits. It's only natural that there are a lot of junkies that go on rampage which isn't the case of CP. Why? Because it's a fetish that it considered one of the worst ones while also marking someone who will be discovered being a pedo until the rest his life as some kind of monster. It's only natural that there will be less people doing it because of its specific nature and consequences it brings.

2. They're the same roten human trash.
One is forcefully using children while the other is not only approving it but also getting turned on by these small children that are incapable of thinking on their own and giving consent while in many cases these children are also abused. These children who were often times bought or stolen from their parents and may end up getting killed in the way. If you think that someone who is okay with watching something like this should not be considered evil then you're a sick fuck.

3. Read second line of 3rd point.
Children are capable of realizing that their family is struggling and may want to help them. Often than not, there is no normal job for them in these countries but instead there are tourists who will pay them if they get naked and don't move for a while. You call that consent? Just because they don't say "no", doesn't mean that they want it. They are not capable of understanding the situation fully and it will leave heavy marks on their mental hearth in the future (if they'll live long enough to reach it).

4. Nothing new *insert thinking emote*
The size of such would depend on country though.
In countries where weed is legal and only certain places are allowed to sell it, the illegal transactions are occurring less.

5. Punishment can work as part of that.
As to why, before one could start a therapy, one needs to realize that his actions are wrong. Either by having to pay a fine or go to prison for certain amount of time. There are also cases where it's impossible to "heal" someone. These hopeless people who would only affect society in negative ways should stay away from it.


I don't see how it's affected anyhow by feminists but I'm not much on Internet so maybe there was something I missed out.
Nonetheless, what @Pullman said is ethically right and if you fail to understand the differences between these 2 acts then I hope to never see you again.

You don't produce drugs by fucking children in front of a camera against their will, raumatizing them for life. You make them with agriculture and chemical processes that in themselves are not immoral, traumatic or harmful, or even illegal, unlike anything that involved CP. Drugs are frowned upon because of their consequences can be harmful to the people who take them (usually out of their own free will), but it's not inherently immoral or anywhere near as universally condemned (the legal status of drugs is debatable depending on the country, but I don't think child porn is debatable anywhere) as CP, and that's how it should be. Drugs can have negative consequences but they are essentially a choice, while CP is raping children to exploit them financially.

It's very, very, very disturbing that you would put those two things on the same level. Like honestly, it creeps me out thinking about someone out there thinking childporn is on the same level as selling or smoking weed.


Your mind is corrupted by feminists.

1. A lot more crime happens because of drugs.
2. We are talking about people who watch CP now, not about the ones who cretes it.
3. It is debateble if all CP is rape.You know, some third-rate countries have digfferent moral and some children just prefer to work this way for living.
4. Using your logic a lot of drugs are made using the slave labor both to producer and to illegally transport them.
5. Once again, you are trying to direct thingas in different direction. People who watch CP are sick, same as drug addicts. What way need is to have a therapy, not to be put in jail or at the bottom of society like you want it to be.


This has nothing to do with feminism, wtf are you talking about? This is just common sense, which you'd kow if you had any. But I guess your views on everything are so clouded by your political agenda that you can't even see how terrible child porn is and have to spin it into some anti-feminist rant instead? You can't even tell the difference between creating drugs (a process that hurts noone) and creating childporn (a process that is inherently traumatic and immoral) so there really isn't anything else to talk about. I'm not here to teach basic human morals to a sociopath.

And with your random feminism comment you show zero interest in actually talking about the topic at hand with any kind of sincerity or logic but just trying to spin everything into something that somehow fits your black and white worldview. I'm not gonna give you a platform for your random anti-feminist agenda while I'm trying to discuss a completely different topic. So goodbye you and your delusional views.

@Hakaminah Thanks for the support but I think it's pretty obvious the guy is either trolling or so delusional that no words or logic would ever get through to him.

Also I think you meant 'ethically' not 'ethnically' in your last sentence :>.

I recommend reading the manga instead of watching the anime. The anime has too much filler. The manga is great though.

He's being hated for being into child porn not for making something popular. Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal is in the top 50 here,the series in the top 200 and the manga is in the top 50 here.

Despite everything that went on with Watsuki. Is RK even worth continuing or is he just milking the series???

ooooh ahhahaha calm down, Lord hothead
when Im talking about being fan of the mangaka, I mean being fan of their work. Why you become a fan (or an admirer of someone)? because of their work

when someoen says "Im a fan of X" It means I like his work, not "I forgive the sh*t he does"

just chill dude

I used to read that lolis = child porn so I was being ignorant on my part. It's the real child then. Bad reputation indeed.

Did he really just have 200 000 000 yen just laying around? I know RK is a fairly successful manga but it’s not like One Piece or something.

It’s no wonder that every shitty Shonen Jump manga goes on forever when their authors make that kind of money.

Imagine being a mangaka who finally hits your big break and scores a spot in Weekly Shonen Jump. All you gotta do is write some dumb Shonen story for 5-6 years and then you’ll be making RK money. Then imagine getting cancelled after like 3 chapters like so many of them do lmao.


@ItsXolo
Yes, successful manga artists are very rich. It was estimated Watsuki has earned around 80 million dollars to date and Onepiece creator Oda has earned around 400 million dollars. They are not billionaires, but they are quite rich.

There is nothing stupid about holding creators to a higher standards especially when it comes to things that ruin or have ruined peoples lives. In Watsuki's case we aren't talking about 2D loli hentai, but stuff that involve real children. The former wouldn't have been a good look, but at least it's a imagined fantasy. It's not just western morality thing either, there are people in Japan unhappy about this decision there too. At the end of day this all just been done for money and unfortunately people with deep pockets or extreme fans don't care until something happens to them or family member. But since sends a single there are no consequences for this stuff tough luck for victims eh? Might as well make every other heinous else okay becasue "this guy does good stories". =/

He's not saying that content creators shouldn't be held accountable for crimes they commit. He's saying that people should be willing to seperate an artist from his/her creations.


I'm big proponent of that but only within reason. The concept not meant to be used a get outta jail free card. It's not okay for an artist to do bluntly illegal and immortals becasue he or she is famous. You have to draw a line somewhere and Child Porn is definitely one of those times to do it. We aren't talking about some grey area like loli hentai, but actual real kids being abused and author who contributing funds fans to this shit. I will always like RK, but the author has lost any kind of respect I ever had for him and this something I can perosnally support.

Dude, you're legitimately defending the contribution and possession of actual child rape. Something illegal in most civilized countries, your faux moral relativism has no value here as this isn't a grey matter. Separating the artist from author isn't absolute rule being with, but a general guideline that cannot be applied in extreme scenarios like this.

How exactly do they support him tho ? most of the people here are reading online for free. I feel like some people are overreacting.


Whoever is buying the magazine his work is being published in. And if there's going to be a first vol those ppl I'm talking about.


@Pupu-Hotpot
Now you are promoting pirating. Pirating is illegal. You are no better than Watsuki.

While I am not the one to talk about this considering I'm an outsider for RK, I will go and say this on the matter. I think one of my few comments I made before explains my viewpoints here about it. Since there's some discussion about this, and I want to make things clear about it I guess.

- I do not support what he owned, since in this case it's legitimate childporn which actual children. This is something I can actually understand the complaint from since this is more of a moral end for his side of the stick.

- Should he have gotten a worse punishment than what he got? Yeah, I can understand that the thing was given wasn't enough. At the end of the day, he owned something. I think the point of some people's ends is that he didn't directly fucked a person, but because of the fact that he owned legitimate porn it hurts those that were part of that list. Which wouldn't be as bad compared to actually doing the act, but it's still quite bad because this ruins a reputation of one self.

However despite that I agree with this, here's what I think about this:

If he legitimately regrets these things and his own mistakes, then what I can say is that he has to step up his game. Meaning well, and I'll say this clearly: He has to learn from this and try to fix himself. This is one of those scenarios where if he does regret it, then I do believe he needs to do some fixing. Only on himself. Since well, this is a scenario where most people will not forgive him for.

He can still write at the end of the day and it's alright that he can still continue to write what he likes. It'll just be hard for people to accept this, since it's a very sensitive subject matter.

- Is it wrong to support something that you care despite the person doing shitty things or people finding out that he did these? This is just a double edge sword and in the end it all depends within the person's perception of said action, as well as the work in the end.

Now, granted this is a double edge sword because people have the right to support the series if they want, but because of this entire situation some other people will go and either question their decision or at most label these people as such as well, which is already a bad sign. But at the end of the day, one person itself should know what to do.

If they want to support RK, then go for it. If you don't want to nor give money at the very least, then that's okay too. This is up one's own free will honestly. And that's completely understandable. I won't go and harp people on this, because it's none of my own business. One should know what they want to do when it comes to the stance of supporting a work.

At the end of the day this all stems from a moral compass. I don't support what he owned, I understand people's complaints about this as it's not something to let go. Considering what I said before, if the author legitimately regrets it then of course he needs to fix himself. And finally for those that are either not going to support him for it, then that's okay. I don't think it's anything wrong with that because it is rather touchy. For those that want to support the work itself, then that's fine too. If you want to buy it then alright. I won't harp you on that once again. It's none of my own business.

And this is just me trying to be neutral about it because I did not checked RK at all, but I did wanted to give my two cents here.

I have no problem with separating his work from his person so I don't really care what he did.

The hell they don't. Some of the worst things in the world happen around the drug industry. People being abducted, given drugs by force and then keeping them as slaves. Children and women being used as mules to smuggle drugs. People forced to work in drug labs. Dude.... come on.

Japan doesn't care, it's only the west making this a big deal.
The fine being so low means it's just one of those videos where the take photos in swimsuits and other skimpy outfits.
The police are making in an example out of him to warn the others.
