Tokyo is Next…


Osaka’s manga ban is already in effect, and as the above list from a shop demonstrates, has already seen dozens of publications banned from general sale as “harmful publications.”

Unlike Tokyo’s ban, Osaka’s ordinance is mostly concerned with banning BL manga – with the Tokyo ban being extremely vague and covering everything from general manga to anime and games, the list there is likely to be much longer, and effectively national in scope due to the largest market and concentration of publishers both being in Tokyo.
