taf-boycott-before-and-after.jpg

The organisers of the Tokyo Anime Fair are reporting they will likely have to cancel the event after the anime industry pulled out in disgust at the Tokyo government’s hostility to them.

After a coalition of 10 publishers vowed to boycott the event, the organisers (the unfortunately named “Association of Japanese Animations”) suddenly reopened their attendee recruiting efforts, but now seem to have realised the futility of this:

“It has become essentially impossible to hold the event.

The targets and criteria of the new restrictions are vague and ambiguous, and are a major issue with respect to the spirit of our constitutionally guaranteed free speech.

We can’t avoid the withdrawal of so many participants. To maintain the quality we have previously delivered would be exceedingly difficult.”

Meanwhile governor Ishihara has repeatedly said he does not care if they refuse to attend and that he expects the event to be fine without them – apparently he wishes to highlight the vitality of the Japanese animation industry with only Disney in attendance, quite the irony for a man who has made a career out of hating foreigners.

Even Japan’s prime minister has stated he hopes the event can go ahead – which now seems impossible without the ban being repealed.

    This is a TRIUMPH for manga and anime!

    The artists have radicalized.

    The artists are pushing the government!

    The government wanted the artists to say, "Censor us, just don't say we can't work."

    Instead the artists said, "To hell with you, we won't work if you censor us!"

    This is victory! Sure, it may hurt to go without our fix of fandom, but this means the artists are showing backbone!

    You know what, in this case, publishers are taking all the action. Why? THEY'RE GONNA LOSE MONEY! They don't really give a fuck about the cartoonists that gave them something to publish.

    In the meantime, artists only went as far as giving sign petition. What the fuck? You think that would work? How about fucking VOTE FOR SOMEONE ELSE FOR A GOVERNOR?

    If the goddamn law does make things worse for Tokyo, you can bet he'd twist his words by saying OTHER PEOPLE twisted his earlier words, or that he had some kind of grander motive that he thought he can achieve by doing so.

    Politicians that are honest about themselves go down quick, but at least they go down. Hypocrites on the other hand tend to stick around some more and destroy everything that's good for anyone.

    For being a writer of obscene like like 'Taiyou no Kisetsu' himself, he's nothing more than a hypocrite. He said 'I was wrong' when confronted by reporters about his own obscene works which he defended in the past, but remember what I said earlier about twisting words?

    If events like this keep shutting down you can bet your ass some politicians are going to change their stances.

    Big events like this always generate revenue in the cities they're held in. You have people from out of town who need food/lodging/necessities/etc while they're at the event.

    When businesses around where the events are held suddenly notice that the crowds that used to come in every year aren't there any more they're going to start blaming their local politicians.

    Why do you think those extravagant fictional stories like GTO and Psychometrer Eiji, which glorifies rebellious youths defying The Man, exist?

    Because they can't do it themselves. Same with all other dreamy works from them: because at the core, they're just a bunch of pussies who won't dare to go out there and take action.

    Japan is now a brave, outspoken, and just country, only when their opponents are filthy gaijins. Yet, they just loooooooooooove taking it up the ass from their own men. Much like the incest loving lot that they are.

    Drown in economic slump and inevitable failure to the Chinese, Japan. You pussies brought all that upon yourselves.

    Why all of Japan ? You wont find this in any media, at least not in my country. The only people who will be embarassed will be the TAF Organisers, maybe Tokyo Government, and otakus who think that Anime (and Manga) is one of the world wide most popular things. And most otakus will just be embarassed in the internet if they have to read something like "lol you and your shitty government".

    "Mainstream" people will hardly be interested in that at all. Except they have an Anime/Manga loving person in their social surroundings.

    iShitHara should be banned for being harmful to children, he has crushed their dreams by ruining the anime fair...

    I hope the even is only temporarily canceled. They cancel it in Tokyo and in three or four months have it in Kyoto or some other place and make a big announcement that it will no longer be held in Tokyo. Then push to get all other anime related events out of Tokyo.

    @diamonddust Judging from the pic you showed us, I guess Ishihara hates black people too.

    I've heard the Chinese were more upset than anyone since TAF was key in their anime idea-stealing efforts.

    perhaps they can re-locate the event somewhere else if possible?

    now that the event has been "canceled" the tourist industry in tokyo will suffer HARD because many a fan (both local and foreign) visit the city for this and now look at it?

    i hope your "proud" of your self old man >_>

    Relocation might actully be the wises Choice. If I understand correctly this ban is only valid in Tokyo-To.

    Not the whole Areas surrounding Tokyo. There some quite big Cities around Tokyo that might have the facilities for such an event: Yokohama, Kawasaki, Saitama City, Chiba City...all of which are located in the surrounding prefectures while still being accessible by public transort.)

    The only problem ist probably only the short timeframe which will make it impossibl to get another location.

    On other musings. Maybe the ban is only a too-too good excuse to cancel the inolvement in the fair: its cheap and its media relevant.
