Unusually, Japan’s public broadcaster NHK has aired a programme delving into the culture and history of eroge and visual novels.

The show in question, the otaku-oriented MAGNET, featured prominent writer Jun Maeda of Key fame, journalist Daisuke Tsuda, Key founder Itaru Hinoue, and a little peak into the studio of Nitroplus – along with plenty of classic eroge/visual novels (the tame bits at least).

The most controversial part of this program was without a doubt where one of Japan’s first eroge, Lolita Syndrome (Maison Rolita), was featured – an unusual choice of material for an ordinarily conservative state TV channel:
