Ishihara’s Banned Books: The 6 Manga You Must Not Read

my-wife-is-a-grade-schooler.jpg

Tokyo fuhrer Shintaro Ishihara’s manga ban is coming into effect, and the first 6 books to be officially condemned as “unhealthy literature” have been revealed, along with the reasons why they have been selected – which range from “incest” to “sex at a school.”

All the manga to be banned will have to be sold as 18+ or not at all, which as has already been seen constitutes a de facto ban as the only retail channels available to them as a result are the ones used for hardcore ero-manga, which the banned titles most certainly are not:

“Oku-sama wa Shougakusei” by Seiji Matsuyama:

A gag manga based on the premise that Japan’s birth rate falls so low that the government has to lower the legal age of marriage to Islamic levels. The 24-year-old protagonist finds himself married to a 12-year-old girl, and various suggestive though not explicit delusions ensue.

Reason for ban: “Child rape”

Famously, the manga was misrepresented on TV by a ban-proponent politician who taped over the pages to make it seem it was an explicit loli ero-manga, much to the fury of the author.

“Aki Sora” by Masahiro Itosugi

Siblings Aki and Sora fall in love and begin a physical relationship. The manga is sexually explicit but also deals with the emotional turmoil the relationship causes in the pair.

The author has already reported that his publisher has cancelled a reprint and there is little hope of the manga becoming available again.

Reason for ban: “Incest”

“Kareshi Sharing” by Yashi Natsuba

A pair of female twins fall out after one steals the boyfriend of the other, who apologises by suggesting they “share” her boyfriend. Though the art is cute, the content is quite explicit, as might be expected of BL.

Reason for ban: “Rape, incest, gang rape”

“Koibito 8-gou” by Makoto Ojiro

A suspenseful and erotic tale in which a journalist works to expose a masked man who has been sexually assaulting women.

Reason for ban: “Rape”

“Midori no Kisetsu” by Maakou

A collection of eight short stories by a long-time bishoujo mangaka, three of which contain themes of incest.

Reason for ban: “Incest, sex at a school”

banned-manga-4.jpg

“Hanahiyori” by Q-tarou Hanamizawa

A compilation of seinen love comedy stories, erotic but hard to consider extreme.

Reason for ban: “Sex at a school”

    Wouldn't matter even if you were talking incest in real life. I know MANY people who have or had incestuous relationships with their parents, siblings or other 'close' family members, and it didn't harm them.

    Hell, some of them even have children from those relationships, and those children are 110% normal.

    People need permission to have kids now?
    People need permission to enter relationships now?

    Don't be retarded. Smokers should be shot, fat people should be shot, alcoholics should be lynched, women 30+ should be disregarded by society?

    Your issue is not about the kids you faggot.

    You may be trolling but for completeness' sake:
    "Morale keep us from being animals."

    1) You mean "morality" not "morale".
    2) We are all animals, that's a scientific fact.
    3) Animals are not bad and in fact many do all sorts of things we classify as "moral" in humans, like not hurting each other, killing babies, etc. This varies between species and between specimens. A lot even practice altruistic self-sacrifice and avoid inbreeding.
    4) Animal behaviors are not bad by default. Is sleeping bad? Is eating bad? You need to criticize specific behaviors.

    Put a little more though in your beliefs.

    How does incest relate to being animals? Of course it doesn't since that is just one of the bullshit remarks people like you use to give make something a negative that isn't. I hate people like you since you just try to hurt people to make yourself feel good. You probably are against things like incest (that doesn't hurt anybody) but support murder (which does) through war.

    Interesting 4 true morals. I disagree with the fact those are the only ones that should be considered as 'true' though.

    From what you've listed, causing extremely severe psychological injuries through traumas/mindfucks (and no physical damage whatsoever) on another human isn't 'truly immoral' then? Those can end up being far worse than not-extreme physical injuries, nay?
    We aren't at a stage where we can assume animals cannot manage such psychological damage to another of it's kind/others. Who knows how fucking scared a mice might be if he saw a shitload of cats running for him and barely manage to run away? I'd figure its instinct of survival would start dictating it to go out less and less if such events would continue to happen.

    I wonder what else could be pointed out that's missing.

    And incest is fine as long as contraception is used. It's not fine if you get a physically/mentally affected child with a sibling as a result of thinking it's perfectly safe though. Of course, normal couples can have those too, but wasn't there something like a higher chance for incest couples having such a child? Or is that simply scientific reports edited for anti-incest propaganda use?

    "1. Do not kill someone unless they are trying to kill you."
    Doesnt explain hundreds thousands of murders every year.

    "2. Do not physically injure someone unless they are trying to physically injure you or you both consent to that attempt, such as in a sports arena."
    I don't know where you are living, but some people are sadists and love to injure others for a few cheap laughs.

    "3. Do not steal from someone unless it is your last choice between you and death."
    If I go by the moral basics that guys like you have, people browsing this website read manga online and download movies, thus are stealing. Thus: why the hell are you here?

    "4. Do not force someone to do or not do something that they do not or do wish to do, regardless of age, unless they are breaking one of the first two rules, causing an imminent and immediate danger of physical injury to someone else without that person's permission or damaging property not their own."
    There is an instition that has this as their job description. It's called the police, and many a police (wo)man is a corrupt bastard breaking the rules themselves.

    "Outside of those 4 true morals? Stuff everything else."
    Nonsensial blabber to show you can make "intelligent" conclusions.

    Result: GTFO.

    Incest that results in offspring is a form of close inbreeding (reproduction between two individuals with a common ancestor). Inbreeding leads to a higher probability of congenital birth defects because it increases that proportion of zygotes that are homozygous, in particular for deleterious recessive alleles that produce such disorders.[51] Because most such alleles are rare in populations, it is unlikely that two unrelated marriage partners will both be heterozygous carriers. However, because close relatives share a large fraction of their alleles (e.g., 50% for siblings or parent/offspring combinations, 25% for first cousins), the probability that any such rare deleterious allele present in the common ancestor will be inherited from both related parents is increased dramatically with respect to non-inbred couples. Contrary to common belief, inbreeding does not in itself alter allele frequencies, but rather increases the relative proportion of homozygotes to heterozygotes. However, because the increased proportion of deleterious homozygotes exposes the allele to natural selection, in the long run its frequency decreases more rapidly in inbred population. In the short term, incestuous reproduction is expected to produce increases in spontaneous abortions of zygotes, perinatal deaths, and postnatal offspring with birth defects.[52] HM Slatis [53] showed a significant delay in time to first pregnancy in first-cousin marriages as compared with unrelated individuals in the same population. A 1994 study found a mean excess mortality with inbreeding among first cousins of 4.4%.[54] A study of 29 offspring resulting from brother-sister or father-daughter incest found that 20 had congenital abnormalities, including four directly attributable to autosomal recessive alleles.[55]

    I also forgot to mention that the (so called) scientific evidence against conception through incest is total bullshit. I'm not saying it isn't true but the problem is it applies to all births and not just births through incest. I would go into this (so called) evidence but most people here wouldn't understand it.

    Excuse me, but TRUE morals keep us from being animals.

    1. Do not kill someone unless they are trying to kill you.
    2. Do not physically injure someone unless they are trying to physically injure you or you both consent to that attempt, such as in a sports arena.
    3. Do not steal from someone unless it is your last choice between you and death.
    4. Do not force someone to do or not do something that they do not or do wish to do, regardless of age, unless they are breaking one of the first two rules, causing an imminent and immediate danger of physical injury to someone else without that person's permission or damaging property not their own.

    Outside of those 4 true morals? Stuff everything else.

    When in doubt stick to the second cousin rule. also I hate it when there is that 1 couple left on earth repopulate bullshit it's not sound because of incest. However 2 couples having 4 kids could work but if Male A has only girls and Male B has 3 girls 1 boy things get criss crossy and weird like Male B having sex with Female A etc. etc.

    That isn't true - incest can lead to highly debilitating genetic diseases in the offspring.
    (I'm just as much against the ban as everyone else, but brandishing falsehoods to support the cause isn't going to help anyone.)

    I hereby declare that all women older than 35 should not be allowed to marry, have sex or have kids - for if they have kids, it is much likelier that they might have down syndrome. Further, they will not have the 'energy' to raise their kids correctly.

    If it is not unlawful for them to do so in your area, if they attempt to have kids then we should all spit on the old ugly hags, kick them out of our social clubs and hate them in general nevertheless.

Death will allow me to finally escape the endless harassment, the endless expectations forced upon me by all the women that want to have babies with me.

    Well, they do eventually give up after coming to terms with the fact that I will not change for them. I know inherently that they only mean well, I know that they they aren't consciously trying to use me for purely selfish reasons, but still, it is nevertheless troublesome when they always try and enter my life and change me with their expectations, their endless expectations, then quickly leave when they realise that I won't.

    I am nought but a boy, but I have been harassed all my life with these endless expectations. Am I not allowed to waste my life playing mmo in peace?

    that's irrelevant. it's free publicity that matters.
    with enough of that, it'll be way more easy to just slap an R-18 mark on them, rework the content in order to make it fully sexually explicit, and then sell them that way.
