Anime column writer Maeda Hisashi criticized the episode 1 of Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai that the characters under 18 were described to have purchased adult games. Popular adult game producers such as Overflow, feng, UNiSONSHIFT were credited as cooperators for permitting the use the package images of their games. Maeda apprehends that the anime would provide the police and the anti-adult game public with a good excuse for imposing tighter regulations.

In Japan, a local ordinance prohibits minors under 18 from buying adult games.

I don't even know what to say. lol?

To be fair, she's not seeing anything she hasn't seen before...

Edit: I was surprised at the fact they used the real names and covers of the various games in the episode, seeing this news clears that up. There's always controversy around eroge though, so whatever.

Hopefully the anime will continue on, since this anime was kinda interesting. I smell a bit jealousy aswell.

To be honest, she is stating the law. She hasn't done anything wrong with criticizing them. But, a nice portion of the sales of eroge probably do come from those under 18 year olds, and the developers don't care as long as they make money.

She probably has a fake ID or a friend that buys them for her. They're making a bigger deal about this than 13 year olds getting their hands on games like Halo 3 and CoD4 in this country and it's already enough of a problem. At least with an eroge you can't whine and bitch over XBL.

If they have enough time to criticize Anime, thus also proving they have time to be watching anime, they should spend that time doing something more important. It's anime, not reality. It's like blaming violent movies for increased crime.

yeah...as if only the minors in Japan buy porn....in my opinion they should at least be glad that the anime advises them to buy as much as they can rather than download as much as they can

What is this I don't even-
I can only imagine how incredibly bored those guys have to be to actually think of such stupid things. They're like European Commission, discussing things like the proper angle of cucumber, or whether snail should be classified as fish. Guys, why won't you just take care of stuff that is more important than a girl talking about eroges in some anime? It's a laugh, I say, a laugh!

This really isn't all that much of a surprise if you know the reason why they made Ichigo Mashimaro's Nobue Itou 20 years old in the anime when she was 16 in the manga. It's because she smokes and drinks, and Japan are clearly going to apply the same rules to porn as they do to other 18-restricted activities such as smoking and drinking, even if it's not (directly) damaging the health of the characters in the same way.

It's still an overreaction, though. How many 14-year old kids are actually going to watch/buy this series, and doesn't it air at midnight or something anyway? I just checked, it airs half past eleven at night. Isn't it down to poor parenting if kids watch shows that late at night in the first place?

3D Porn in America: Godly level with 100% uncensored material of every fetish you can ever wish for.

3D Porn in Japan: Horribly butchered material where no one is shaved and you can't tell what the fuck is happening since it's ALMOST ALWAYS censored


therefore kids have no choice but to look at 2D porn (even though that is ALSO censored)

Not all under 18s can wait all of those years. Just think, they've already had around ten years to play super mario. (I'm not criticizing super mario, honestly:D)
Kids mature quicker these days...
It is the law... but still...
no comment about that.

Well that isn't the first anime, where teenager buy eroge and play them.
But well, televison animates children to do stupid things.
And if that girl is playing eroge and said she bought them per mail without problems...
But srsly I don't care :D Every country has this problems with children and porn and aslong there is the Internet, you can watch 'em for free everywhere.

ok i think it might come down to her being a girl...because in quite a few animes ive seen a guy was palying an eroge(or something similar) and they dont get criticized so maybe iybe it because she DESCRIBED them...but i think if a guy described em they wold have no rpob

They had a problem with this but not KissxSis? Not only because the latter is about a hundred times worse in content, but the very 'underage girls buying (or rather, attempting to buy) adult games' thing was covered too. The only difference is that Kirino actually succeeded. Many times over.

But really, the show is yet one more focusing on otaku obsessions. R-18 games come with the territory. Were they really not expecting that? And where was the objection over the light novel and manga? That stuff happened there too, it wasn't slipped in for the anime.

Doing such a big mess over few pics of H games?! Really?!
It's not like you can see anything 18+ in this anime. Why in anime they can kill each other out in the most fucked up bloody ways but not play H games? (o__O)

What's the big deal, it's not like when kids see some eroge covers, they will buy it too.
It's an anime, it doesn't has to be real. Like stories in anime that could never happen to you in real life.

The point isn't shoeing the eroge. the point isn't if it's real or not. The point is, by having a character under 18, buying and using erogames, it's somewhat sayign "It's okay to buy eroges even if you're under 18".

Now, that said, this is balls. C'mon, go and do something more useful and leave our anime alone.

So far she didn't say how she bought them. Then again she models on the side s obviously she can trick the system. Still, this isn't the first anime with minors playing adult games. Obviously someone is bored...or just wants to destroy the show for some reason.

And they allow nipple-showing Kanokon on TV without any controversy. Weirdos.

Oh wow, big whoop if kids play adult games. Their PARENTS should be the one to say if they are allowed to play it or not, not the government.
92% of teens have moved onto rap. If you're part of the 8% who listens to real music copy/paste this into your sig.

You can argue with the fact Ore no Imouto is not the first show to have underage characters playing eroge and it's not even a primetime show per-se, it's hidden in the wee late hours of the night when all those kids should be asleep anyway.

This is just some critic who wants more attention and makes an effort to find things that are wrong.

I mean, let's look at our American TV dramas. Teens buy drugs. Teens buy porn mags. It's perfectly acceptable when it is in a fictionalized tv show.

Plus, I am pretty sure most animes have illegal things in them. Last time I checked, killing people is illegal in Japan, yet it happens in almost every action anime.
