Default Bad news for all of us

Read and weep people, I know I am:

http://zepy.momotato.com/2009/05/28/...nned-in-japan/

Now I know a good deal of you are thinking, "so what, I don't play those kinds of eroge", which is fine as everyone's entitled to their opinion, but this is far from a difference of opinion but rather a government telling people what they can and can't look at.

Not exactly, it says they're banning sales and production, which means no new material. It doesn't say anything about continued usage of existant material you already have. There's nothing new about governments regulating what can and cannot be sold.

And of course I think this is a complete joke. Can we get some statistically relevant proof that these games do anything to increase the number of rapes that occur against real women?

Yes, the government is definitely involved in this.

The PC software independent review committee is definitely the government.

By the way, said self-regulating committee also bans loli in games. Yet there are still loli characters... hmm.

This will just be ignored or loopholed like the loli rule, whatever.

As far as I know, EOCS (sofurin) is simply an independent rating board. If you want their stamp of approval, you send them the game and they'll look through it to make sure it doesn't conflict against any of the rules they set. All member companies are required to get their games (and other related media) validated. The EOCS has no legal enforcement power on their own; they simply advise distributors to not carry games that have not passed their test and are used in around half the prefectures to determine what are "harmful" media. The way I think of it is that it's like the ESRB, where it's not required to get a stamp of approval from them, but good luck trying to sell anything without their approval.

Non-sofurin companies like nitroplus seem to do alright. They've got the CSA, though, which is something like:
- No sex scenes with characters explicitly given to be <18 (so Kodomo H's games wouldn't exactly qualify here)
- However, characters can be named 高校生 or 学生 etc. whereas with the EOCS 高校生 is a no-go.
- No other restrictions

Not as bad as it sounds to me, they clearly state "rape game will be banned" right? So does it have nothing with non-rape h-game? But does sex scene count as rape? if so, it's retarded

I made this exact same post on otakuism in response to the exact same thing, but what the hell, nothing wrong with cross-posting

Phbbbbbbbbbbbbt.

The sofurin, with their old fashioned bible-thumping subjective morals can SINK for all I care, and everyone else can sell on dlsite =P

Wow. Has anyone read the comments on the post the OP linked? People's reactions to this are friggin' crazy. You'd think that not being able to read rape eroge was like pulling the plug on their life support system or something.
Not saying I entirely agree with the ban, but calm down. People are calling this "Orwellian"? Seriously? It'll be quietly swept aside like the loli rules, and rape-focused doujinshi will flourish.

Actually I think Equality Now spearheaded this misguided endeavour, and they and the bible do not get along.

Shall we call it "Murakamish" then? We'll see.. In any case, at this pace it looks like we will get there sooner than later...

They came first for the lolicons,
and I didnt speak up because I wasnt a lolicon.

Then they came for the rape fetishists,
and I didnt speak up because I wasnt a rape fetishist.

Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up.

Srsly, nothing should be banned. Especially since it's fucking not real and drawn.
