Eroge Taliban Take Over: All Fetishes Banned in Eroge

hakaba-bondage-extreme.jpg

The EOCS adult game censorship regulations imposed in response to feminist criticism have finally been revealed in detail, and it seems they are shockingly draconian, practically banning all pictures and text which stray from the missionary position.

Not just rape and loli are now banned; all group sex, kinkiness and anything else which might cause trouble or offence is banned, whether in pictures or text; it is difficult to characterise such a sweeping ban as anything but a complete victory for opponents of freedom of expression and sexuality.

The full list of what is now completely off limits to adult games published through traditional channels:

banned-eroge-list.jpg

(Some terms do not have clear English equivalents)

Rape

Loli

Gang Rape

Assault

Brutality

“Reverse” Rape

Girl

Adultery

“Reverse” Assault

Compulsion

Gangbang

Student Council

Bestiality

Bondage

Coercion

Train Molestation

Enjo Kousai (Prostitution)

Incest

Torture

Binding

Pregnancy

Violation

Slaves

Pregnant Women

Confinement

Conception

The ban covers all pictures, text, packaging and even the names of the publishers themselves.

Euphemisms are also banned, and the list will be added to as required. It seems the only major omission is homosexuality; it is also not clear whether the ban on pregnancy and conception means games must now feature obligatory contraception…

The source is a publisher quoting the EOCS guidelines for the benefit of their own partners, so it is still not a direct announcement, but seems as close to one as can be expected. This also confirms the previous publisher misgivings that a game featuring nekomimi and consensual pregnancy would be banned under the new regulations.

Details of how this may affect publishers and retail channels are covered in the previous articles, suffice to say it seems the retail trade in such games will be undergoing a severe contraction.

With such a spectacular success in censoring so broad an array of deviancy, it seems only a matter of time before a similar assault is launched against anime and manga, to say nothing of the wider pornography industry…

    I am more confused than anything else, I don't get into a lot of the fetishes on these lists, but drawings are not real, why are they getting so worked up over something so meaningless.

    They're getting up in arms about it because they're insecure with anything that they personally wouldn't do themselves, IMO.
    That and they have total god-complexes going, to want to control others the way they do.
    Extremist feminists need to die, it's that simple.

    I agree, they sucked at being women in there own right. So they try to piss every one off by forcing people to do what they want. We should send them all to the sun with it being in disguise as a retreat for feminist convention to Hawaii.

    Why would pregnancy, conception, or Girl be banned?
    That doesn't make any fucking sense.

    I am just in awe of what happened...

    Come to think of it. The dissolution of Studio e.go! might have been a prelude to this ban. 山本和枝 never explicitly stated why she left Studio e.go!, but since then she has made a new brand でぼの巣製作所 and distributed her game digitally. I am not sure if this bypass the ban but a lots game producers will likely follow suit, seeing Lilith and Norn have been doing that for a while. The eroge market doesn't have capacity to accommodate 30+ romance eroge each month WITHOUT loli, shoujo, and student council. A lot of eroge makers will probably go under or start making baby bottles. I hate to be right about this, but started collecting eroge was a great idea since we won't be seeing a lot of those for a while. I hope this ban is just temporary.

    Is this going to end up fucking-up the upcoming "Boku no Pico" eroge, or is all shota (both boyish and femme) still protected? What about futanari? Do they even make "baachan" (granny) ero there?

    The closest thing I know is a game called まままままま(yea, funny name) which you get woo your step mom's mom(I guess that makes her your step grandmother). The art is decent but the game is a piece of trash. I hope they leave the futanari alone.

    Girl...
    This makes me laugh.
    So we're allowed to have men fucking each other?
    Too bad I'm not even remotely attracting to yaoi...

    The situation cheeses me off though. For the love of god, when did people lose their spines? Conception? Train scenes? These are perfectly acceptable! This is where being so freaking worried about being politically correct has taken us, to bowing down and kissing the asses of the nearest figure claiming to be 'objectionalized' or 'discriminated against' on the base that they have a vagina or some other bullshit excuse.

    I'm all for equality and the VALID fights related to it, but this is not it. This is being a coward without a pair of balls to their name that takes the easiest route so the poowr wittle 'feminists' (as they dare call themselves) awent offwended. BAAAAAAAAAAAW I say, BAAAAAAW. Fuck the femenazis.

    Nyaaa! This is crap. People that overreact to fantasy need to jump into a pit and die. People that put pressure on countries that they don't even live in need to stop being so bitchy and stick to their own soil...and then die. Super-ridiculous feminazis may not have been responsible for the exact content of this self-ban, but they pretty much started the landslide...or slippery slope, if you will. Equality is fine, but idolizing superiority of either gender is crap. Only women ruing the world would be no better than only men. And I'm a woman too. Screw the bitches that started this. Idiots. Plus it makes all women look like whiney, stupid, over-reactive morons that can't tell that real life does not equal fantasy and privacy is supposed to be private. I swear...

    Complain to ban one thing, many other things come with it. Banning and censoring things is a no-no in my book. I don't care if you don't play eroges and never plan to, banning one thing can lead to utter ridiculousness down the line, so you should care.

    Plus who the f cares what people do in their private lives? Oh wait, a lot of idiots do apparently. Humanity makes me cry tears of rage/hate almost daily nowadays. I seriously hope those responsible in any way for this find their way to the nearest pile of dog poo and fall in it. Stay solid, eroge makers and publishers. I hope you guys make it through *air fist*

    Hey, stop raging at feminists and realize that the Japanese industry did this to themselves. All the feminists did was send a few angry letters to a single eroge producer of a single game.

    They didn't have to comply. But they did.
    The Japanese news didn't have to blow it out of proportion, but they did. They didn't have to claim there's a ban on rape when no announcement as such had been made, but they did.
    EOCS didn't have create these insane new restrictions, but they did.
    Eroge producers could've stood up for themselves, but they didn't.

    Don't blame the feminists - they simply started off the chain. I for one blame the Japanese themselves.

    If this ban really comes to fruition, we'll probably see a lot of eroge producers move to digital distribution to bypass the ban, or they'll all drop out of the EOCS.

    Aren't they by doing this making some of the things that some people who are adults and do it by their consent illegal?

    I mean some people are really into bondage, you can find that stuff all over the net. Well does banning it in an adult game seem rather silly by comparison?

    I don't think the term freedom of expression really should apply to this kind of thing. It's not really expressing anything.

    That said, shoujo? really? and student council? what are they trying to do here?

    And seeing as this is a within company notice, doesn't that mean the real list might be longer...

    You really do have a poor understanding of freedom of expression. Simple answer: they don't. Nowhere is it written that every form of expression must refer to political, social or religious issues. And even if it was, a constitution that defines free expression like this would be morally wrong (Yes! I said morally!) and needs to be reformed.

    It is a form of expression. By god, if women going to art schools can call menstrual blood dripping onto paper art, then making an entire game around a genre is too. Everyone who is into art will consistently tell you that even if it's in poor taste, or not executed skillfully, or even if it's not a unique idea - as long as it makes someone FEEL something, it's art.

    In that case, Eroge is far more artsy than most porn, because it's very character driven rather than just "Hey, let's make a video of a chick taking a cock up her ass in various positions".

    By banning all of those things, they've essentially said you're not allowed to tell anything but the most vanilla of vanilla stories.

    Most likely they're talking about shota, except extending it across all forms of little boys. Shota implies that there is an older woman having sex with a young boy. I suppose an older man is possible, but I've never seen any like that.

    loli is much more common and therefore it's spread to be anything physically sexual with underaged girls, no matter who else is involved.

    I've been wondering if they wouldn't include h-scenes so that they could use the seiyuu for the remake. IMO what they should do is keep the seiyuu but just don't have them voice the h-scenes, hopefully the fans will understand.

    This isn't a law-based ban, so there's nothing to worry about. If EOCS really implements this, then all the eroge producers will jump ship to another ratings organization.

    Still, there are concerns that there may be people who would take this as a initinative to start making the bans.. lawful.

    Already there's evidence of a drastic chain-combo after a certain idiot put up rapelay on Amazon, hence starting a violent reaction. And it's not stopping now.

    Call it irrational paranoia but i believe that this will ALSO affect normal anime and other fictional materials. You can see how n4kk3d faries for art is bannable in UK.

    You're forgetting the power of Akiba and 2ch... if they try to impose the same policies on anime, they may find they no longer hold office.

    Because the otaku will have revolted.
