TBS Loses All Its Anime After Fan Outrage


Ishihara’s anti-anime anime event has been rapidly denuded of top titles like K-ON! and Amagami after TBS was outed as attempting to hawk them at the event in defiance of publisher (and most probably creator) wishes – now TBS lists no anime at all for its booth at TAF.

The booth in question previously listed K-ON!, Amagami, Yumekui Merry, etc, but now lists nothing and is careful to point out the general public is not welcome at its booth:


“We will only be discussing sales with overseas buyers on the business days. There is no display for the general public.”

Overseas buyers should of course still know better, and instead attend the publisher-supported Anime Contents Expo being held “purely coincidentally” at the same time.

There are still however plenty of disgraceful companies still supporting the event, although it now appears heartening to note that almost none of them will have the ability to exhibit any popular titles, for most of the copyrights are held by the big publishers…

    C'mon guys. All you guys wishing Ishihara death should know better. Death is too good for the old fart.
    I wish all of his beloved grandchildren turned out otakus and for him to be alive to watch them "shame" him.

    For all we know, his grandkids could already well be otakus. Worse yet, hikikomoris.

    Of course, just because a select few became mere chaff who can't stand the way their society works doesn't mean you have to outright ban something. That's like saying we should all ban knives, even those you use in the kitchen, because some day, some fed up frequently abused wife will use it to stab her asshole husband 18 times.

    Those hikikomoris chose anime and mangas because it happened to be there. If those weren't available, people will always find something else to obsess over. Just look at the emos, Jehovah's Witness, Scientologists, rednecks who do nothing but polish their .50 and drink beer all day...

    Hikikomori's are usually people who have realized how craptacular society is today (regardless of our extreme scientific advancement compared to years ago), and therefore refuse to engage in society.

    The "real world"? If you want to live in the "real world", get the fuck out of your city, and start trying to kill animals for your food. THAT's the "real world", not this concrete playground people have created to make themselves feel safe.

    You're a moron. The real world is what people work in, live in, and experience in. In case you've been cooped up in your basement all your life, you fucking pathetic hikki, times change. What you described would've been the real world centuries ago. Not so now.

    But you wouldn't know that, prefering to live in your own oh-so-safe-and-magical fantasy anime world. People like you should die. You're just taking up valuable space.

    What a load of bull. Hikikomoros are cowards who can't stand the thought of living out there and facing the real world, all the good and the bad, and so shut themselves in. They're pathetic excuses for human beings.

    Though the thought of his daughters and grand daughters getting raped by people emulating his novels feels poetically just, rape is something i would not wish on the innocent.

    You know what would be an infinitely better thing to happen than this? That Japanese otaku (and freedom advocates) grow a backbone and leave do a Cairo-style protest in the hundreds of thousands demanding for the overturning of the ban and the removal of Ishihara from power.
