According to the official website, adult video maker TMA has announced they discontinued the parody adult video of "Steins;Gate", titled "Layers;Gate" in response to the copyright infringement claim by game developer MAGES. TMA apologized to MAGES and other producers of Steins;Gate for making troubles and displeasures.

TMA has been producing parody adult videos of anime for years such as "Faith/ero" (Fate/Zero), "CLONNAD" (CLANNAD), "Suzumiya Hahiru no Yuuutsu" (Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu), "K-ONBU!" (K-ON!) etc. Shikura Chiyomaru, the President of MAGES., tweeted last November that he was planning to take a legal action against TMA.

Welp, the 3D world line sucks. TMA's still making these parody AVs, though.
A Persona 4 one.

I LOLed watching the non-ero K-ON! one on Youtube.

Personally, I'm glad this got pulled. Steins;Gate's too beautiful to be dirtied by porn. Sure, fan art dirties it anyway, but it's better than an OFFICIAL COMPANY making a porno and selling it alongside Steins;Gate boxsets in Japanese Mega Malls!
Also, anyone who is genuinely disappointed this was cancelled... There are loads of hentai out there and live action hentai, and there's even this site called XTube. USE IT!
Could care less about the unofficial stuff, because that's inevitable anywhere, but I'm so glad this porno was cancelled, so people will remember this as that awesome anime to do with time travel, and not...

"Hey, did you see Layer's;Gate?"

"Oh yeah, that... Yeah, it was so sexy!"

"Yeah... I can't seem to remember what it was based off, though, but does that matter?"

"Nah... probably doesn't..."

THAT WOULD SUCK!!!
IT DOES MATTER!!!

I rest my case. Fuhahahahaha!


I agree. This is not what the anime was made for and not how it should be remembered.

(I'm pretty sure it's the one on Youtube, you can search for it).
Ahem, why is it on Youtube when it's an AV??


There is an all age version, I presume.

Here, see for yourself:

Nah...its just because TMA makes money and MAGES doesn't. Thats the only reason.
But TMA is not direct competition for MAGES., or is it? Why would they care?

They're utilizing Mages' IP to make money without paying Mages for the right. That's generally the reason this kind of legal action occurs. That, or the IP holder fears that the derivative work will somehow harm their reputation. I doubt the latter is the case here, so it must be the former.

Now, this is generally not seen as a problem in the otaku industry. See for reference, well, the entire doujin scene for one thing, which is overwhelmingly tolerated (even seen as beneficial, perhaps) by rights holders despite being in a legal grey zone. But Mages, or at least their lawyers, must feel that this particular enterprise has gotten too big/is making too much money to be overlooked.

It's impossible to know the exact reasons that this particular rights holder went after this particular derivative work for this particular franchise. But it very likely boils down to money in the end. Or bored lawyers. Or maybe TMA's president fucked Mages' president's wife and this is revenge. I dunno! ...But it's probably money.

Thanks for the answer.

The claim still doesn't really make sense to me, but I'm gonna go with ''Kurisu is MAGES. president's waifu''.
