For a second, I thought it said Anime Expo (the one down here in Los Angeles) has been canceled. Nonetheless, it's still a shame. Good luck to all the victims, and may they recover.

I expected this. It's a shame they won't get to stand up to Ishihara, but it can't be helped. The safety of the country and its people is way more important.

It so true


QFT. Tis a shame. Well then again, activity on the manga and anime regulation ordinance should die down for a while, considering how the country's priorities have been forcefully shift. Maybe anime and manga publishers will recover before supporters of the bill do, thus giving us a few more months of unregulated manga. Not that I wish for some parts of Japan not to recover; I wish the entire nation a healthy and speedy recovery.
