Ishihara: “Otaku Have Corrupt DNA”


Tokyo’s governor Shintaro Ishihara has accused manga fans of being “abnormal” and having “corrupt DNA,” whilst condemning sexually explicit manga as “causing harm without a single benefit.”

His comments were made at a recent press conference, in which he sought to justify his support of the ban by rambling about genetic defectives:

“There are indeed plenty of perverts in the world. The DNA of these pitiful people is corrupt. They are indeed abnormal.”

The perverts in question are apparently anyone who opposes his ban.

This of course comes not long after he called homosexuals “genetically defective” and “pitiful.”

Another remark saw him criticise loli manga:

“Stories with young children being raped serve no purpose. They cause nothing but harm with no benefit.”

However, in the same press conference he went on to praise Vladimir Nabokov’s classic lolicon novel “Lolita” – “It was shocking at the time, but at that level the description is quite beautiful.”

When it was pointed out to him that when he was criticised during the 1972 publication of his own novel “Shinjitsu no Seikyouiku” (“True Sex Education”) he defended himself by saying “Literature of any kind does not lead children to commit crime or cause juvenile delinquency,” he merely responded that “I was wrong.”

In other recent remarks he again restated his indifference to the industry boycott of the Tokyo Anime Fair, saying “Who cares if they don’t come – they’ll come next year!” and even expressing his belief that the attendance of the anime industry is not necessary to an anime fair at all – “It doesn’t matter if they never attend it!”

All this from the man who has been writing rape novels for the past 50 years.

A synopsis of Ishihara’s 1956 novel “Kanzen na Yuugi” (“The Perfect Game”), loosely adapted into a movie:

A group of youths kidnap a mentally retarded girl whom they brutally rape and keep as a sex slave. After failing to sell her to a brothel, they dispose of her by throwing her off a cliff.

“Taiyou no Kisetsu” (“Season of the Sun”), a 1955 novel which sold a million copies and was also made into a movie:

A tearaway boxer in highschool begins a sexual relationship with a schoolgirl (by sticking  his penis through a paper screen door), whom he soon grows tired of. He sells the girl to his brother for 5,000 yen.

The story ends with the girl becoming pregnant with her former boyfriend’s child and dying after a botched abortion, with the protagonist showing remorse for the first time in the story whilst attending her funeral.

“Shokei no Heiya” (“Execution Room”), a 1956 novel with a movie version, was the most controversial of his novels due to all the copy-cat crimes it inspired:

A group of young men pick up two women, who they go drinking with. They slip sedatives into their drinks and subsequently rape them. The girl’s friends catch up with them and stab one of them to death in a fight.

Interestingly, in 1957 a group of 7 16-year-old youths were arrested for gang-raping a 16-year-old girl whom they had drugged. Police later discovered the crime was modelled on the events described in “Execution Room.”

The book was also connected with a case where a middle-school boy crept into his neighbour’s house and placed sedative in their sugar, putting a housewife into a coma.

Another case saw a group of high-schoolers put a sedative into a girl’s coffee and drag her off to a nearby ryokan, where they attempted to rape her. Yet another case involved a group of unemployed youths kidnapping a woman for use as a sex slave.

Incidentally, all Ishihara’s novels are on sale in Tokyo bookshops and can be bought by children with no restriction.

However, even showing these 4-koma manga versions of Ishihara’s novels to a minor in Tokyo is now a criminal offence:

    There is nothing in the genetic code that creates otaku nor do Otaku have radically different DNA from other humans. I imagine the governor here has never taken a biology or anthropology course in his life.

    It's just the same old stuff we've heard for centuries, only this time with a new twist.

    In "The DNA of these pitiful people is corrupt.", replace "DNA" with "Soul", and suddenly it sounds very familiar.

    Now this is what I call serious mental dysfunction... I have never seen such a retard in whole my life, and believe me, I saw a lot of things. This is incomprehensible for anyone with common sense. But no wonder that people support him. There are incredibly many seniors in Japan, mostly of his age. I am pretty sure that they are the same kind of perverted generation Ishihara belongs to. They are probably jealous of all this anime and manga culture, because they had nothing more than crappy Ishihara books...

    This man's hypocrisy makes me want to vomit.

    Seriously, books, movies, anime, manga, games, 2D or 3D, it's all the same. What makes him think that literature is any different from our manga? And what makes him think he's always right? What does he know about DNA anyway?

    I know lot of stupid people but Ishihara is probably one of the worst cases of human stupidity, arrogancy and hypocrisy I've ever seen in my whole life.

    What makes us "abnormal" in his eyes I have to wonder. I mean yes, I love anime and manga, I love dirty or violent anime and manga, too but that doesn't make me a bad person. I've never hurt anyone, I live normal life, I study and plan to work when I'm finished, I hope that I'll marry someday and I'm polite enough not to call other people with different interests "pitiful," "corrupt" or "abnormal" just to make my opinions sound right.
    I have to admit that there are really some sick and disgusting things out there among anime and manga (not as many as in 3D though, seems to me). But at the same time, there are lots and lots of great titles, even ero or violent ones, that are really worth watching and are great pieces of art.
    No one has the right to tell people what they should like and what they shouldn't. Someone likes bunnies and butterflies and someone likes gore or scat porn. As long as no one is hurt, everything is OK.
    Moreover, authors are not responsible for sick morons who try to imitate what they see in TV, read in books etc. Parents should be responsible for their kids, adult people should be responsible for themselves.

    But I don't expect self-righteous people like Ishihara to understand...

    What really makes me vomit is not this pathetic old man's ranting... stupid people are stupid, period. You have to bear with them, poor souls.

    The worst part are people who like what he says and vote for him. Such things make me really lose faith in mankind.

    You're right.
    I don't get why people vote for him in the first place. He's just spouting nonsense all the time. Especially his claims about "corrupted" DNA are so stupid it hurts. He wants to restrict freedom of expression etc.
    I wouldn't want a person like that to take care of my city.
    However, I have to say that this happens in my country, too. People are voting for the same stupid politicians and parties every time. Then they complain about the political situation. Geez, people. *facepalm*

    All manga is composed of paper comprised of 50% pulp product and 50% retrovirus whose effects are transmitted immediately upon contact with the skin.

    In the case of digital distribution an airborne variant is pumped directly into the viewer's ventilation system at the time of viewing, which has admittedly caused adverse reaction in cats and dogs but hey, to make an omelet you gotta break some eggs.

    im am very sure if there were some believable studies regarding this subject he would have rubbed them in our faces long ago, so i would like to ask ishihara just how he knows my DNA is defective

    Once upon a time a young boy wanted to become a manga artist

    Until he realized he was a crappy drawer and no animator would work with him

    Then bitter he decided to be a novelist and wrote many eroge books

    However not satisfied with this he came to resent manga and turned into a bastard and that a*hole evolved into Ishihara

    this is why we need to kill off all old people once they reach an age or deny em rights to be elected and so on because this is a disgrace to their own lineage its quite pathetic actually.

    and another point isnt this a hypocrite speaking saying what he thinks is bad yet praising at least one lolicon novel? i feel someone needs to physically go in and give him a good slap and run off giggling and make him feel pity for em never realizing said person may seem retarded in his mind but is actually quite knowledgeable and just ninjad him right then and there. would be funny as hell!

    But guys, I think the way we could really fight this sob seriously is by contacting the publishers and letting them know we Anime fans all over the world support them all the way.

    Don't otaku spend a lot of money on this beloved hobby of our. How many Anime fans are we all over the world? Millions perhaps? if so couldn't we get the publishers to hire the best legal team in Japan.

    Even if the funds are not there at the moment they could be if we all chip in. Couldn't we at lest help financially. I don't mean offering a fortune, but if we are millions of fans, couldn't at least a dollar donated by each and everyone of us do wonders.

    And don't give me the argument I don't like the crap being shown lately, because this smear campaign against otaku has nothing to do with making Anime content better. This bastard only wants to impose his will onto others. If only I could communicate in Japanese I would get in contact with our fellow otaku in Japan and make them realize that we all could achieve a lot if we all join forces.

    I refuse to let our hooby die just because of some senile old xenophobe.

    Aren't Otaku fed up with being bullied by all this people with nothing better to do but discriminate others just because.

    So Japan keeps following the fascist ways? They still don't love freedom... it's time to throw a couple more of nukes once again.

    He is not a hypocrite. He is an ignorant fool and a poor leader, but he isn't a hypocrite.

    To qualify as such would mean he has to condemn something, while doing the exact same thing and acting as if what he does is fundamentally different.
    It's a form of self delusion, but it's different from the plain ignorance he displays.

    He's actually reminding me somewhat of Hitler's(and many other's) "perfect people"-idea. Soon he'll be advocating mandatory "care" for all otakus.

    Yes, and the Jews have corrupted dna and are filthy too, if you believe Hitler and his nazis..

    If Ishihara could build Concentration Camps for Homos and Otakus, he probably would.
    Ah sorry i said it wrong.. i meant re-education centers...

    May I say "Racist"?
    Talking about DNA make me think that he is racist against otaku.

    ^ This implies that novels and manga should be considered to be in different categories, which they simply aren't. Fiction is fiction. In this particular case they're even both books. So yeah, he is a hypocrite.

    EXACTLY. He is a hypocrite. He is a book author and guess what his books are about. RAPE and violence. He has absolutely NO right to condemn at other media with rape content. In my opinion, the only reason he is banning manga and anime is to eliminate the competition.

    Yes he is.

    By saying that "Otaku are genetically defective", he is also saying that the manga and anime aren't the cause of the problem. So forbidding manga and anime won't change anything, "Otaku will remain genetically defective".
    Worst, by depriving them of non-life occupation, they will start to have a life, sex, get married and have kids. That way the perverted gene of the Otaku will go to the next generation, perpetuating the Otaku lineage.
    He's actions are going against his believes. ^^

    Of course, what I wrote here is not to be taken seriously...

    @04:02: sorry, should have triple-checked who you replied to first. Of course you're right that he doesn't ban his books, and that it's also extremely unlikely to happen in the future. I was kinda hoping my comment wouldn't show up since it was missing at first, but since it did, please accept my apologies.

    You know, this is starting to sound a lot less like its about anime and manga and more like a reawakening of eugenic policy... I know the US and UK tossed around the idea of eugenics around the 1950s and was eventually thrown out because its crack-pot psudo-science with severe cultural side effects.

    Thing that's corrupt is the society that those young live in, people's actions reflect the world around them. Those shitty governors had fail to create a good living environment and yet they blame the DNA of young.

    I think the people of Japan need to remember their scripts they made in the Anime "Code Geass" A leader needs to step up to the tyranny of their own government. Some of this applys to their current legislation and may not apply to this.

    This person has seem to forgotten that there were perverts and monsters long before anime or manga became prominent. Adolf Hitler, Genghis Khan, and in our own time, there were monsters like Ted Bundy, Jim Jones, Andrei Chikatilo, Gary Ridgeway, and a whole slew of others. As I recall, none of these fellows were "Otaku" in any sense of the word, but there was plenty wrong with them. It's just one more fellow blaming the popular media for societal problems. Just because his police face is ineffective, and crimes such as rape and other things are handled sloppily just means he can't take responsibility for his own incompetent ineffective administration. Maybe someone just needs to remind him that not too long ago, there were plenty of complaints of thugs on trains raping and groping. Most of these were BUSINESS MEN and thugs. Hmm, weren't the otaku usually worried about getting to the stores in time to get their goods instead of committing a crime on a random stranger? Hmmm, someone's seriously trying to distract from that fact apparently.

    And this hypocritical idiot thinks that otaku are the problem? At least "Otaku" aren't known for being super-brutal, and maniacal. The incidents where they say "otaku" have committed crimes, well, those are people who had a lot of mental issues to begin with. The incident in Akihabara was committed by a very unstable person. Let's not forget Debuman, (who went to a maid cafe because he wanted to score with a waitress) who was a BUSINESS Man, much like the idiot above. The list goes on. If he really needs to point a finger, he should look in a mirror. Then look for some of the jerks on this end that sneak roofies into people's drinks to get them to bed. Hmmm, I'm guessing he might find that some of THOSE people are not "Otaku" in the sense that he means it.

    You guys are totally crazy. At first I thought that Ishihara guy spilled total nonsense, but after seeing you care so much for some stupid superficial ban, cuz you cant go fuck real woman, makes me fucking sick. Sure, fuck Ishihara. But you guys should be fucked too. Pathetic losers. Now I want a total ban on sex in anime just to see you losers suffer.

    angsty you haven't gotten any recently and blaming otaku too now?

    too bad everyone caring so much "for some stupid superficial ban" actually has a legitimate cultural artistic point against censorship at the end of the day.

    whereas you are just trolling for attention trying to act like you've got some greater higher maturity vision, when really you're just being a childish bitch for attention.

    I would ONLY agree on the whole getting a girl of your own but you forget how many articles about the female population in Japan being more superficial than a black chick just getting child support. Haha! I hate my race... ((-_-)) Point is though the otaku COULD have stepped outside to show that they have more for them than anime ( Mine being my job and a HAPPY RELATIONSHIP) and vigins they'll never meet (lookig at you 2ch). And people like Ishihara and those that fail to undersand how selective that law is should take a note from the HARDCORE hikikumori otaku and never set foot outside thier homes... But lets give everyone a hand! Otakus for having a reason to fight and ishihara gaining the hatred of us fans around the world...
