“Japan Forces Poor Countries to Translate Hentai Child Porn”

loli-mizugi

The Philippines has launched into a hysterical drive to demonise Japanese erotica, with their legislature proclaiming that “hentai is child pornography”, but now there are even claims that Japan is forcing poor countries to service their international child pornography empire, with the Philippines supposedly the number one victim of this monstrous exploitation.

A ludicrous example of this supposed practice is proffered in the form of a lady who is “forced to translate hentai loli manga to support her family”:

The anonymous lady, in her twenties and a resident of Manila, laments that she is forced to support her two daughters by translating depraved Japanese ero-manga featuring school children, for which she receives an income of some $300 monthly (which is in fact the same level as a Filipino civil servant and an enviable salary for the country, so we must wonder at her desperation).

“When I first saw these horrible manga, I was so shocked I didn’t know what to make of them.” She seems to have got the better of these emotions and went to work translating them all the same. Her poor daughters even saw her work on her computer once, after which she told them never to go near the PC, lest they be poisoned by the insidious Japanese hentai contagion.

She apparently cannot actually speak Japanese, but “uses an online dictionary” to produce something approximating a translation.

Supposedly the office she works at employs ten people to translate ero-anime and manga for consumption in countries the world over, operating 24 hours a day as a loli-translation mill of sorts. No specific titles are mentioned.

The lady explains that the operation is probably situated in the Philippines because of low labour costs and a lack of regulation. Presumably she will be happy to be looking for a new highy paid job soon…

The account itself originates from Japan’s foremost gutter rag Mainichi, apparently still intent on doing its part to sully Japan’s good name after being forced to drop its English language hentai news site by disgusted domestic readers.

Since loli ero-manga is hardly ever translated commercially into English, we have to wonder whether their story is anything but fabricated propaganda, although the Filipino hysteria is genuine enough… If true though, it would certainly shed some light on the quality of translations in use for English language manga.

This is not all, according to a legislator: “There are even cases where poverty forces parents to make their children model just to make enough to survive.”

It should be noted that in spite of the recent flurry of law-making on the subject, the Philippines remains a nation on the lolicon sex tourist’s travel itinerary…

    wow.

    1: Translating Japanese, a language which she does not understand that contains a hell lot of Kanji characters, into English, which, if she is fluent at, should at least signify that she is worthy enough to have a basic office job. She should be fluent with at least English, knowing that her job is translating something into English. Note also that she translates into Japanese, which means a very very very different grammar structure which takes hellworth to understand properly if your used to a language like English (Jap is like reverse English lolz.)

    2: Translating kanji in flat image files? fail. It's hell hard to even use that Microsoft IME.

    3: If she has kids, that means she probably means she marrried. So what's the man of the house doing?

    4: I'm 16, and I do web designs which earns me PhP20-70k (425$-1500$) per project that lasts 1-3 weeks. She can also work for someone else (provided she has some natural skill at something. If she can translate Unknown Jap to English, then she must be logically competitive to understand what she is translating.) Which means that she has the basic capabilities to have a "proper" job. Hell, most of our best employees here aren't even graduates in the field they are working on, provided they have the natural talent and interest. They earn at least 17-20k (more than 300$) a month. One of our gfx designers here isnt even a graduate of any arts-related course and he's one of our best and has been buying all these gadgets and stuff recently.

    Loli manga is translated with google translate. I don't know, how she types kanji (OCR? well, I don't know jap, but can reliably recognize kanji), but if she knows english, she can make something understandable of the result. The quality suck, but that's how it works, sad but true.

    Wait a minute, she isnt an official translator,otherwise she would, I dunno, know Japanese. She's part of a bootlegging ring. Of course she would make the same amount of money as civil servants. Bootleggers dont pay income tax!

    This is the Philipine pot calling the Indonesian kettle black.

    LOL, right...

    And even if this isn't absolute bullshit (as far as I know, translations for loli mangas are only made by fansubbers), I suppose they are trying to say this is different than sweatshops or any other jobs in which random rich country "forces" random poor country to do their work?

    Of course, if any translation work is really made in the phillipines, they probably consider "hentai child porn" just about ANY manga that exists out there.

    For instance, Love Hina would probably be considered hentai child porn there... since you know, it has some absolutely pornographic and erotic panties scenes, which are completely obscene, much the opposite of the countrie's poverty...

    Finally, yes, we are all to trust some anonymous lady, that tells about an anonymous company, that makes translations of anonymous manga, with anonymous titles. An anonymous tale told by the Internets!

    Also, we are all to blame loli hentai, and NOT the parents of the kids that forces them to deal with material they are not supposed to deal with, with child labor exploitation.

    One has to laugh on the false moralists propaganda, how far they'll try to go to force their beliefs and prejudice on others.

    it'll be no wonder if we find out later on that this stupid rumor was spread by some moronic feminist organization, or UNICEF, or something like that.

    Hey Guys!! To those who live in the philippines, like me, take note that the local Filipinos there are whores to their American counterparts! If you think about it logically, this is all a systematic takeover propaganda from a particular hypocritical feminist fascist group who is spreading their cancer to their loyal allies. They intend that other nations shun Japan.

    Actually no, this is not enviable. The enviable salary would be around 400 - 600 and you can get that by working at a call center. LOL.

    I am afraid for her daughters. When she told them not to go near the PC (and look at loli manga), I'm sure they will do the opposite. That's what children (and even adults) do. I'm sure right now her daughters are trying to mimick what the mangas portray. That's why the mother is spilling the beans so that Japan would be blamed. It's like a child caught smoking by his parents. Blame it on the greedy tobacco companies with their slick advertisements.

    I find it amusing that they lament the horrors that their people are forced into due to poverty, while making no attempt to solve the problem. They instead choose to demonize a solution instead of trying to end the underlying problem- poverty.

    Oops.

    i call shenanigans on this article.

    i believe this the filipino politicians realized their own stupidity when they banned hentai because they thought, hentai=loli porn. so now they're still trying to taint the good name of hentai by doing shitty things like making up this article.

    first of all, the lady was "forced to tranlate it"? i dont think so, because $300 is hardly enviable, in fact quite a pathetic salary considering it is a job involving translating a foreign language. i'm guessing the forced part was doing it for so little money, not because she didnt want to do it because of morals or something.

    second, she's got a pc and enough brains to use an online dictionary, which i also think is bullshit because i dont think it would be possible to be able to translate hentai manga for a job with only an online dictionary. so, if she's indeed smart enough to be able to accurately translate hentai manga. then she could most probably be able to find a better and higher paying job than what she's doing.

    I live in the Philippines too and all I can say is that woman has some nerve complaining about that easy ass job she has.
    $300 is quite alot by our standards. Even more when all she has to do is translate ero-manga with online dictionaries. She didn't even go to some jap school to learn the language for fuck's sake! She's lucky such a job was offered to her. Talk about ingrates in this country.. GOD!!!!

    Forced? Yeah maybe! Coz jobs here are so friggin' hard to get. If she hates it so much then she should quit and just pass it to me. I'd more than happy to accept it. Let's see if this woman can hold on to her idealisms or moral grounds when she sees her two children starving to death. Yeah.. maybe then translating all those "poisonous" ero-manga's wasn't so bad after all...

    That's a misleading title, SankakuComplex. No where on that Mainichi article did anyone say "Japan forced poor countries". It's just a non-govt-related company set up in the Philippines that translate eroge manga, and some woman translated it out of poverty.

    Well, for a gutter rag site like SankakuComplex, I shouldn't expect more.

    This is fairly comical since the Japanese are a bit xenophobic of all foreigners. Any non-Japanese native is permitted to visit for more than 90 days and has to even go through fingerprinting at their foreign embassies.

    Anything that the Philipines says to Japan will likely fall on deaf ears. This, considering they have hidden the atrocities they have committed during World War II against neighbouring countries and removed them from all of their history textbooks...

    I guess every country affected by the Japanese's tyranny back WWII is finding ways to retaliate. Though these methods seems stupid. Attacking Japan's manga/anime industry by blocking distribution into their own countries? Wow, how creative -_-

    The best way is simply becoming better than Japan. Not impossible even for the Philippines..problem is..there's only a handful who would even dare to do such thing because unlike Japan a lot of Pilipinos don't care for their country
