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.

It's like you don't know that there'll be a label along with the 18+ rating stating as to why it is 18+, as is standard with absolutely every rating system on Earth. Stop trying to make it look like you understand the situation, when you actually don't.


Actually, I think you should probably "stop trying to make it look like you understand the situation, when you actually don't."

Onibokusu said:
Hm? I wasn't implying anything. I quite clearly stated that he didn't understand the Youth Ordinance Bill. Aki Sora would have '18+' with 'may contain explicit incestuous content' on the back.

There's nothing to not agree with, considering it's not an opinion and a matter of facts.


Did you even read the article?

(((When asked if these volumes can be released with an adults-only stamp, Itosugi acknowledged that "it is not out of the realm of possibility," but added that these volumes do not meet the criteria for an adults-only stamp. She noted that these volumes do not currently have an adults-only stamp. She also emphasized that she did not intend for them to be adults-only and that this manga would have been a completely different work creatively had she drawn it for an adults-only audience. )))

Catch that?

"these volumes do not meet the criteria for an adults-only stamp"

Now look stupid.

Well from what I read on Mangafox forums it seems that 1-30 has already been published, but chap 21->23 didnt get translated it skipped straight to 24 and 25, seems you can find 25->30 online but unscanned.

And this story is somewhat weird, random, makes no sense, but its pretty good, in a way, tho there is too much random sex for no reason and it not being a H manga...tho Im a fan on Wincest so really like the twincest *-*

First they came for Aki-Sora,
and I didn't speak out because I'm not into incest.

Then they came for general hentai,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't into any kind of hentai.

Then they came for the Seikon no Kwaser,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't into ecchi.

Then they came for anything with fanservice
and there was no one left to speak out for me.


I lol'd.

The 18+ rating would also mean that the product is immediately banned from family stores or any place where kids can easily access them. Esentially they would be sold alongside hentai as if they were one and the same.


Er... what are you basing this assumption on? Because I've been to bookstores in Japan, including Kinokuniya, and there's definitely lots of 18+ (shrinkwrapped) books on sale. Very visibly, in the case of 18+ BL titles - there were displays among the regular manga at the front of the store, and so on.

What? No more incest?

On regular manga at least. Be sure to buy hentai for your regular dose of incestuous love.

What's there to misunderstand?


funny you said that yourself lol. i'll re-quote the comment for ya

bergil said:

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.

You can read the full (and true) news here : http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2011-04-21/2-aki-sora-manga-books-to-no-longer-be-printed-after-july


Aki-Sora's not really going to be discontinued yet (although it's heading there), just that volumes 1 & 3 won't be reprinted.

OK you got me.

I figured I could get away with posting something after reading less than 5 responses and still seem to be as insightful as the average post in this thread.

I'd have to agree.... the story was pretty awful and it had way too much random sex.

still should be canceled because it sucked and not because of incest.
