>“There will be a massive sweep through Akihabara,” predicts the editor of a manga title from a big-name publisher. “This is Japan’s biggest shopping area for electronics. Tourists and athletes will shop there.”

>In stores selling adult comics, the walls are covered in posters and signs depicting naked children. “In video stores, there are love dolls of little girls visible through the shop windows from the street,” says the editor. “If tourists and athletes, especially those from Europe and the United States, see this kind of thing it won’t go over well at all.”

>The magazine says action has already begun. In May, a revised law was submitted to the Diet that would prohibit the possession of child pornography. The amendment also intends to censor specific content in manga and anime that is considered harmful to society.

I agree that it's kind of gross selling merchandise of naked children. This isn't an issue of culture or censorship, but international standards. Us Brits didn't display golliwogs to the Africans at the London Olympics, it's not fair that the Japanese show lolis to the entire world.

And this actually benefits paedophiles, so I don't get why you'd be upset about it.

>> No.11419699

I'm not from /a/. We had one thread when Tokyo got the olympics with /sp/ crossboarders talking about how happy we should be. Then we got one yesterday pointing out why it's bad. Now there's this one. Tell me how this isn't serious please.

How does making the sale of merchandise for pedophiles illegal benefit pedophiles?

If you keep quiet and move that stuff upstairs while the tourists are here, then you can live to fap another day. Stay strong, don't get too cocky, and keep it to yourselves. Don't try to be heroes because you will fail.

This needs to happen, 'otaku culture' has been bastardized and become stagnant for some years now. We need a reset switch, let it go underground and be pushed away.

Ever since otaku mania exploded again in the Japanese mainstream in the late 2000s this stuff has always been trickling away in the background. It's hard for companies like Sony to make big bucks from the culture when it has such controversial roots. Too bad the otaku boom is starting to shrink again, they will likely just close all their business interests in Akihabara and the entirety of the 'culture' and leave it for dead. Akiba will be forced to revert back to an electronics district and when the storm passes the mainstream will latch onto something else, and it'll be up to the remaining figures of the industry to pick up the pieces.

We've waited nearly 10 years for this moment, I'm glad to see it's finally here. This will be the shakeup the entire scene/industry/etc needs.

Perhaps you will give a fuck once the resultant radioactive release travels around most of the Northern Hemisphere, making it completely unlivable. Fukushima has already eclipsed Chernobyl's release by many factors. They are dumping incredibly radioactive water right into the Pacific. If the exposed cores achieve fission again, without containment, the results could mean the contamination of the entirety of Japan, the Pacific, the west coast of America, and potentially much worse.

Do I know about what nuclear physicists and scientists are saying regarding the situation at Fukushima, where the missing cores going critical and achieving uncontained fission would be incredibly bad for the entire world? Or the facility falling on on the exposed fuel rods, of which there are over a thousand, could cause them to release radioactive elements which could spread worldwide? Or that TEPCO has been dumping radioactive cooling water and runoff directly into the bay? Or that radioactive water has been seeping into the entire water table, making the area unlivable for centuries to come, and has been leaking out into the Pacific, possibly making the Pacific a dead zone in decades to come?

Or that they have no fucking idea how they're going to contain the existing problem, much less keep it from escalating into a larger one? Or that they've been lying about the seriousness of the problem for 2 years, while TEPCO officials either fled or bought off Japanese politicians? Or that it's getting so bad that even Russia is telling them to fucking get things under control, somehow, or there will be repercussions?

The general consensus amongst people that know about radiation, nuclear energy, and have examined the results of Chernobyl ranges from "We are all fucked in the decades to come." to "We are fucked within a few years, possibly less, if the facility collapses."

But, please, Japan can discuss the Olympics. Maybe they can develop hazard suits capable of keeping people alive long enough to watch the games.

>> No.11434175

The facility is so radioactive that electronics cease to function, meaning that they can't use robots to clear debris or handle the fuel rods. Most of their workers have already put themselves on the Cancer Express, meaning they can't go back in without putting themselves at SHORT term risks. And one fuck up when trying to find the cores, remove the spent fuel rods, or shore up the building could break it all.
