first link
link talking about sword out online and misc shows

Funnily enough, he's using Eromanga-Sensei as a reference on why anime which shows the exploitation of a child a standing point for all of anime. He's also used NGNL, Sword Art Online and Goblin Slayer as examples of why these anime should stop being screened, as to "protect the welfare and safety of children in our nation".

I find it ironic how they are spending time on this rather than more pressing matters at hand. Why bother about some 2-dimensional children when there are 3-dimensional children in Australia literally suffering as a result of poverty and fires?

Your thoughts?

problem with this though is that this senator is calling anime such as Sword Art Online child abuse and pedophilia when its literally airing on kids tv as we speak. Other popular anime which may show minor amounts of child abuse (e.g. anime such as erased, possibly AoT, and any other forms) are in the possibilities of being banned as well

if he was going to highlight anime shit that was fucked beyond repair he might as well have highlighted the dark underbelly of the hentai industry having simulated child porn run rampant instead because shotacon/lolicon is where the real fucked up shit is

but hey I guess most people are too pussy to show how fucked up that crap is

aside from that simulated fetishy ecchi shit still often has sexualizing undertones but at least it's not depicting active child abuse and all the characters are usually teens, unless it's garbo like kodomo no jikan which I like to pretend doesn't exist

mainstream anime isn't a problem even if some of it has got gross fanservice crap
banning it won't help anything

and yes considering there's fires there are worse things to worry about
to say the least
but if you're gonna call out the weebshit call out the right weebshit that's far more degenerate weebshit

I'm surprised he didn't go for actual ecchi shows instead of mainstream shit
Eromanga-Sensei's pretty damn degenerate from the standpoint of the incest shit but the ecchi content in that is light compared to something like the recently controversial Interviewers/Reviewers debacle (to be honest that show is basically porn and there's no tiptoeing around it so I can understand why that's been pulled from platforms), HoTD, To Love Ru, or DxD (which are less explicit but still have had to have censored broadcasts due to standards in Japan no less).

Most anime doesn't even have so much as a kiss much less sexual assault or rape.

What is wrong with some Australians? Not long ago someone tried to outlaw women of legal age with smaller breasts in porn. Another time some people formed a lynch mob after an art photographer. They also charge possession of lolicon to same extent of the law as real actual children. All in the name of protecting children from exploitation.

Oh boy if SAO and Goblin Slayer triggered him this bad the internet is going to mind break him.

Just imagine exposing and normalizing the greater US to mating press elf nakadashi hentai. Everybody is going to be doing it. Pullout will not be an option experts warn.

The teen pregnancy rate in the United States has been declining in the past 20 years. As of 2018, the United States teen birth rate is 17.4 births per 1,000 females between the ages 15 and 19. Despite these lower rates, however, the U.S. continues to have the highest teen pregnancy rate of all developed nations.

They might as well ban Pokémon to the outer regions of the galaxy for encouraging animal abuse and for being the work of Satan himself while they're at it.

Wait, wut? They're not even real family, lol. The same for No Game No Life. And neither of them has any romance between the 2 siblings either. How is it even incest?

Let's ban everything else that glorifies negative things while we're at it.

I won't be happy until we're living in a totally sterile environment, devoid of anything that might upset anyone.

At the time there are giant child-porn rings in existence with politicians and other influencial figures involved where innocent childrens are ACTUALLY suffering from sexual exploitation.
But that's not an issue so instead of dealing with that we should just talk about banning Anime for some lewd elements. They are the real problem.

You'll find these sorts of topics and ideas found in any media if you look hard enough. The anime chosen are clearly just cherry picked as seen by Eromanga-Sensei. The shit that some kids have gone through and are going through is awful, banning the screening of anime isn't going to stop that. If they want to catch the awful people doing these things to children then they should put more funds and effort into trying to catch people doing this. Stopping screenings of anime will do nothing, if people could get 'inspired' by anime to commit these horrendous things then they have mental health problems and would be able to find 'inspiration' from almost anything. It's the same thing as saying playing video games makes you violent, it's idiotic and a massive generalisation.

Of all the anime he could've cited, he went with SAO. cmon bruh

But yeah let's go after the drawings instead of, you know, all the actual children that are being trafficked and exploited at this very moment. Loli porn might be disgusting but there's way worse things that need to be taken care of.

Fate Zero also has this stuff. I do not equate fiction with reality so such a ban seems strange. SAO is a very tame example.

https://www.canberratimes.com.au/story/6650325/senator-calls-for-child-abuse-anime-review/?cs=14231

Out of all the issues we're facing in Australia; with the bush fires and droughts and the potential for a Coronavirus outbreak, anime and manga seems to be one of them?

This senator used tax-payer money to watch and review anime - choosing the most extreme examples of shit and perverted shows, picking and choosing specific things that don't represent the entire anime community and industry, to prove his claims that it counts as "child abuse" and "child exploitation".

"wide-eyed children, usually in school uniforms, engaged in explicit sexual activities and poses, and often being sexually abused."

Apparently, because there are "scenes of rape, incest, highly sexualized imagery of young people, etc." in some shows, that's justification for the Australian government to ban series like this. Haven't they heard of or seen Game of Thrones, where during an episode, real, not drawn , innocent children are thrown out of windows by cowards who want to avoid taking responsibility for being caught committing incest, or viciously raped to onscreen to consolidate political power while watched by a gutless crying manservant?

Now he wants to place an examination on all anime that's legal in Australia.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcvtQ9sJM9o

I get that some of the shows are shit, and I see where he's coming from, seeing as he's probably never seen anime before, but do they need to be outright censored? No.

A Pakistani lawmaker once petitioned the parliament to ban Doraemon. It's just an excuse they use to watch more anime.

Our government is useless, they couldn't prevent the fires that happened last month, they often ban quite a few websites, they even ban people with political views they disagree with or get offended at, now anime and manga could be next on the chopping block.

We appreciate the help and support from anime fans from all over the world, at this is a crucial time

Aside from the Goblin Slayer part about children enjoying rape, I think you're intentionally denying things in order to resume your hobby guilt-free.

First off, despite eromanga sensei being trash, those two aren't even legit siblings. if anything, it would be pedophilia but lets not talk about that now. Second, Goblin Slayer only really did the rape scene as a hook to get viewers into the show. The rest of the series was pretty tame.
These politicians need to go back to the hole they crawled out of and leave my anime alone.

i get that the time isnt right but the steps taken are correct. if children watch that stuff thinking it's a cartoon then it will give rise to a new generation of perverted weebs and it would be ok but the weebs are perverted and the cycle will continue so the correct action needs the correct timing.

If you want, you can just plug your eyes and ears with the newspaper and sing "Lala" until it repeats ad nauseam in your head. I'm certain it'll block out any unpleasant thoughts eventually!

I dont know the other shows, but he misinterpreted both Goblin Slayer and SAO probsbly intentionally cause who in their right mind watches GS and thinks the victim were enjoying it. So im not rly confident of his reviews.

I haven't watched SAO yet but it is my understanding that the Asuna scene he mentioned was attempted rape. Key word: attempted.

He couldn't bring himself to talk about what happens in Eromanga but as far as I recall the most explicit scene was when two of the girls played twister in their underwear. If something like that is unspeakable and needs to be banned then say goodbye to 90% of anime.

If 90% of anime is so explicit with their sexualization of a minor / your not sister, then I got lucky and good riddance to all the anime that would no longer exist.

Attempted rape doesn't somehow make it better, y'know. Not that I see how "attempted" those tentacles were but whatever floats your boat.

Eromanga Sensei actually had several tit shots, considering Sagiri is a physically undeveloped child - that looked really disturbing.
