According to the twitter of Itosugi Masahiro, the first and the third volumes of manga Aki-Sora will be discontinued this July. Itosugi said those volumes have been censored due to the descriptions of incest. He stressed that obscenity was not the reason for the censorship.

He said it's a great loss for the manga culture that one of the motifs has been banned as a result of the Tokyo's ordinance.

Well obviously he will resolve everything in the end. Altough I only read for the laughs now. Sora literally fucked the living daylight out of everyone. I would have had a great laugh if he fucked his mother too.

I bet Ishihara's bill will effect kissxsis too shortly. I just don't understand why didn't the publishers move out of Tokyo... they had a half year for it...

It's not a ban, people. It's a restriction, it'll be something akin to what the ESRB does for games, which is ratings.

You people are falling under Sankaku Complex's sensationalism, you know that? Jesus...

Well, it's very common for people to just read headlines instead of the whole damn article.

I remember that one time where Artefact said Madoka was canceled... and then when you read the article, you find out it was just postponed. That guy managed to bring all the worst things about capitalism and the news media into the otaku fandom. It's incredible, and disgusting.

According to the dictionary
ban: "officially or legally prohibit (something)"

Like the publishing of domestic violence, nudity etc. in manga/anime aimed for teens/children. According to the dictionary it IS a ban. And since you were the first mentioning Shitkaku complex here, the joke's on you, sir.

I might visit Sankaku, yes, but that doesn't mean I agree with every shit that Artefact posts there. The only reason I access it, is because ecchi and ero gets a lot of recognition. Apart from that, I can very well do without all the sensationalist crap that idiot does just to get more hits on his website.

And the content wasn't banned entirely. It was restriced: it must not be shown to teens and children. Just like how you can't show blood and gore to kids in videogames. That's why stuff like M and 18+ ratings exist.

And that's what you get, Japanese Otaku, for failing to vote in the latest elections.

Manga Aki-Sora To Be Discontinued Due to Incestuous Contents
I guess it explains it is a moralist issue (illigal relationships related to sex)
Thought it would not take effect on yuri or yaoi romance if it isn't "related to sexual relationships"
Never saw an ecchi problem here:

There can always be self censhorship problem even if the law don't restrict some of those contents...

Who are you to judge what's wrong or sick? Love transcends everything, even biological relations.

Do correct me if I'm mistaken here, but I'm under the impression more than half of Japan''s population is people from the old generation? So even if the teens and people under 40 voted against Ishihara, he's still gonna win anyways for having more supporters who share his views. :(

I'm thinking the problem lied within it's low birth rates.

Ishihara Shintaro won the elections with only 43% of the votes...

The law only bans depictions of sexual behavior involving minors under the age of consent or sexual activity between those whom can't be legally married, Keita and his sisters can be legally married in Japan and the age of consent for sexual activity in Japan is actually 13. Also, the law doesn't apply to media or products labeled 18+ for adult only.

Ah...well in that case (and i'm being hypothetical here), someone should've persuade all the other voters, against Ishihara, to focus theirs on one particular person, just to drive the bastard out. :(

*Ekhem* Why incest? I mean, we read something we can't get in reality, right? And that's why we like it. Now i hope we'll see more and more sister/brother rape cases just to be able to say "In your face" while looking at Ishihara.

Two words Koi Kaze. I'm not sure about the manga, but the anime is an example of a high-quality production which has incest as a central theme.

While a Aki-Sora may have little artistic value, the same doesn't hold true for something like Koi Kaze.

They should adopt AV (alternative vote). with AV, if no candidate gets over 50%, the weakest candidate gets knocked out and the second choice votes for those people who voted for the eliminated candidate are counted instead. The process repeats until there is a winner.

Makes want to vote in favor of such a system even more than I did already.

It was on my plan to read list, a pity really.

Can't wait for the day only K-on! can be sold, because everything else is harmful to children...

Edit: Ops, I forgot that they called their teacher "Sawa-chan". So much disrespect will wreck chaos among children.

The restriction don't affect hentai since was already restricted to a level 18+ since 1990.
So "hentai" industry is ok

Hm. I've read this manga for about 6 or so chapters. I didn't like it. Even for manga the story just made me tilt my head and go "WTF"?

However, I am upset about it being canceled like this. Everything's gonna be in for a pretty wild ride over the coming year.

Incest or not. This is against Freedom of Expression.

You can all talk about your rights & wrong when in "reality" there is no one who can define what it really is. We just eat each others head until there's only one left to decide. Let someone else decide for you. Are you really okay with that? Might as well throw your life away.

I am not happy with this decision.

The title of the thread is misleading.The Aki-Sora manga is already completed what's discontinued is the PRINTINGS OF THE MANGA VOLUMES.Manga's itself has ended in the 25th volume of Champion RED Ichigo magazine on April 5.
Also there is still possibility that the manga volumes will be published with an adults-only stamp.

Oh yes, that was a reall close call for YnS. For a moment back then, I actually thought they were gonna have Sora's arc canceled or pull some kinda BS like having Sora friend-zoned like they did in Amagami SS.

Fortunately, the bill wasn't put into effect instantly allowing us to enjoy a whole episode of filled with twincest hentai goodness.

Every post in this thread is hilarious. Half the posters don't understand the bill, and the other half are backing incestuous relations being marketed to Under 18s.
