“Rape Game” Censorship Begins

blackpackage-try-hindo-no-yakata.jpg

The feminist imposed censorship of Japan’s thriving visual novel culture has already been felt, with titles already released and due for release being forced to change their charming titles, typically so they make less explicit reference to the kind of BDSM scenarios which are a staple of the genre, as you can see below:

Note: The titles make little sense even in Japanese, so the English versions sound even more ridiculous.

寝盗られ女教師 ~美幌先生陵辱日誌~ → 「寝盗られ女教師 ~美幌先生○辱日誌~」

“Peeping on Sleeping Teacher – Mihoro-sensei Rape Diary” becomes “Peeping on Sleeping Teacher – Mihoro-sensei **pe Diary”

隷嬢の姦獄 → 「令嬢の監獄」

“Slave Girl’s Rape Hell” becomes “Girl’s Prison”

はらぷり ~ぬるぬる孕みたがるプリンセス~ → 「ぬるぷり」

“Harapuri – Slimy Pregnant Princess” becomes “Nurupuri”

返済性奴 → 「返済計画」

“Repayment Sex Slave” becomes “Repayment Plan”

凌襲 → 「戦乙女の危機」

“Rape Attack” becomes “Warrior Maiden Crisis”

牝奴の館 → 「貴醜の館」

“House of Slaves” becomes “House of Shame”

鬼父2 ~あんたみたいな鬼畜、お父さんじゃない!~ → 「鬼父2」

“Brutal Father 2 – A Brute Like You is No Father of Mine!” becomes “Brutal Father 2”

精神汚染~白濁の淫夢 → 「精神汚染」

“Soul Pollution – Lascivious Dream” becomes “Soul Pollution”

奴隷将校クラリス ~白濁のグローリエ~ → 「堕落将校クラリス」

“Slave Officer Claris” becomes “Disgraced Officer Claris”

The actual restrictions on content have yet to be made clear, although it seems no entirely new editions are currently being made.

    Pee on my Teacher seems like a Cool Title.

    I have to say the companies are using the correct method to get around this. The titles are still rather obvious but if the picture and titles do not represent rape in any way then the feminists won't be able to do anything.

    In order to discover whether or not these titles have rape in them they would have to play them first hand. Which is why I believe for a short while all of the companies should stop producing rape games only for a month or two and simply make non-rape games that sound like rape games but have no rape in them. The minute the feminist groups begin saying they have rape in them is the minute that the game companies can fight back by saying there is no rape...there is also the idea of consensual rape. There are many ways around these "rape" issues and the companies have already begun to fight them.

    I can only imagine what the news would say about feminists groups like equality now buying one of these games to "check it out". The whole rapelay thing was mainly because of the word R"ape" in the title of the game it is highly doubtful whether they would have been able to accomplish what they did without the content being obvious. If no news is given about the titles on sites they check regularly (which makes one wonder what kind of sickos they are to actually look for male masturbation material). Either way these feminists groups the best way to fight them is to fight them with the fact they've never played the games before...

    Side note: I wrote to equality now about the issues of rape and reminded them that it is not only males that rape...needless to say but I've yet to receive a response.

    Renaming won't circumvent the ban. And EOCS does review the contents of the games for certification. I think the game makers are doing this to "lay low" and not to draw fire from female nazis. Sadly, the ban is pretty much a done deal. I'm not sure there is anything that can be done at this point...

    Actually, you have a point about Raplay's title being too conspicuous. However there are tons of eroge with レイプ or 姦 in title that came long before Raplay did. Raplay became infamous in particular because it was actually popular in the US(ironically it wasn't even the intended market). Even if the ban didn't happen today, it is bound to happen in the future with some other title that reaches popularity in the US, if nothing is to be done about the female nazis. You can't just hide from the issue. It's rather unfortunately that the Japaneses decided to bow instead of putting up a fight. That's a consequence we will all have to live with.

    I know they want to ban it.But i wonder they probably won't ban it for real at all.
    Reason,becouse money is used on these games and there is really nothing wrong about fiction.And maybe politics are just covering the games to cool down the feminists.

    But that is just my wishfull thinking.

    That's what I thought at the beginning. Since eroge is a pretty big industry in Japan, they wouldn't go through with a ban. Apparently the Japanese have less backbones than I thought. I think the ban has a lot to do with big name studios that doesn't specialize in raep eroge(Key, Leaf, F&C, Giga, Cirus, Navel, August, etc.) trying to cover their own ass. They probably have enough representations in EOCS to sway the decision and they have the least stakes if the ban takes effect. In fact it helps them to eliminate competitions. It's hard to imagine that studios whose livelihoods depend on raep eroge(AIL, Black Package, Black Rainbow, Guilty, Liquid) would voluntarily support the ban. What they didn't know is that if you give an inch to the female nazis they will take a feet away from you. They are digging their own graves by giving in.

    Just got a paradoxical thought. I think they want game company wanted to do a animal "reap" game. Since there is no such thing as animal reap so they cant called it a reap? you can't called it reap cause its just animal mating. Right guys? Kind of like a catch-22 but why the fuck feminist Nazi wanted to band animal mating? Are there real Animal females that got reap???

    Hit the nail on the head, anonymous.

    When you give an inch to these fem-nazi's and sex-haters (look at their agendas and you realize that they are all dykes who hate men when it comes down to it!), they will take a LIGHTYEAR.

    The first game was a weak plot, weak character, incoherent, poor graphics piece of trash ヤリゲー. This one looks even worse...I would play Final Fight over that any day of the week.

    A few old titles there. Nothing really worth a dime there maybe except 精神汚染 from the maker of 姦染 series. Actually renaming may not be a bad thing at all. A few times I walked into a game shop I am too embarrassed to bring it to the cashier because the titles were...hm, you know...too explicit. I mean there are some AV titles that doesn't sound AV at all. What worried me is when they start censoring the contents. I am expecting a surge in 陵辱/BDSM games shortly before the ban takes effect. Hopefully there will be some good titles then.

    The renamed versions are awfully Engrishy, but in a good way. They make me smile. If this is all that's needed to evade the self-imposed bans, I say go for it, no matter how ridiculous it sounds.

    Like an online petition has ever worked.

    Sorry, but this is the worst way to go about things. It just makes it look like you're trying, but in reality all you're doing is nothing while trying to look heroic. Help for real or don't do it all.

    I like both titles very much! Though the latter sounds less like an eroge and more like a bad reverse harem anime...

    Voices for Eroge = Females

    kinda weird that they want the female gender to loss work in times of the so called "Great Depression" :D

    For all of you sayig your're not worried, this is just the first step, expect some pretty strict content censorship later on. I hope more companies will put some priority on their rape games and release them before the content censorship rules are finalized.

    This is the most stupid move...

    If they decrease the severity of the titles, more people think this is innocent content... and thus more people get there hands on this stuff...

    Example:

    “Repayment Sex Slave” “Rape Attack” “House of Slaves”, obvously only people after sexual stuff will buy since they know it's explicit...
    “Repayment Plan”: A noob money curious person will buy
    “Warrior Maiden Crisis”: A little girl will buy
    “House of Shame”: A drama curious bookworm will buy...

    I'm pretty sure the packaging and 18+ labels amply illustrate the game's sexual content.

    Seeing as how most of these femnists hate anything with a penis, I highly doubt that they are trying to boost an e-penis.
