Madoka “Will Be Cancelled!”


Magical puella detractors are becoming rather excited that their efforts to get Madoka canned for being filled with scenes of magical girl abuse may finally pay off.

Japan’s TV censorship watchdog previously received complaints about the content of the anime, and will likely be “deliberating” on the content of the anime.

However, online detractors are taking this as a sign the show will be taken off the air, their enthusiastic hatred buoyed by a mass media article touching upon head-biting complaints:

“It looks like they’re considering taking it off air! Next week we’ll know what they think.”

“Yes, they seem to have received a flood of complaints! So now there’s a chance it’ll be canned.”

“They have received lots of complaints. The situation is quite serious.”

“It’s possible the disc release will be cancelled. Even the manga could be pulled voluntarily by stores.”

“It’s too late. They are already considering its cancellation. It’s that serious.”

“It’s not made up. It’s a real issue now. It’s possible it will be taken off air completely! Of course, I hope it all blows over…”

Sadly for detractors, the BPO is run by the broadcasters and very rarely if ever does anything about the crazy complaints it receives.

It is also not unlikely that most of the “complaints” the organisation received came from the denizens of this same thread…

    Can't believe the parents that fail to take care of their children keep blaming anime and manga. These things are already being aired late night so late it's almost morning "LATE NIGHT!" I couldn't imagine myself having to wake up 12 in the night to watch an anime

    I remember waking up at 2 AM to watch anime on Starz or something. Of course that was a Saturday morning. I didn't turn out that bad.

    Well what about the School Days ending. That should at least be up there as well with Higurashi since it was running in the same season.

    Actually, they pretty much forgot about Urotsukidōji, since that series has some gore stuff in it and sometimes sex.

    The problem is in Japan! Dai Nippon Desu! But even so such an awesome title I'd kill to have this continued if it will ever be canned

    Even if they don't reach Korean levels, Japan has produced exceedingly brutal live action movies. It would indeed be Ishihara logic if this show got negative special treatment. Thus I find it hard to take this as anything but clever marketing like HouseLife said.

    Exactly. In this Anime there's almost nothing at all, i don't even get why there is even such a hype about it.
    But anyway, that's why i think this was all their plan(inb4 just as Keikaku..) to push the sales of DVD/BD.

    It's because it's a dark magical loli series. I mean no one would of exected something like this to happen. For all we know it's just someone being a Mami fan and raging that she died a few episodes into this series.

    So we can't have cheerful sexy anime and we can't have gloomy anime either? Why not just ban anime altogether?

    And yet it manages to be rated PG all the time. Not that I mind in that particular front. Retards also said the same about the Looney Tunes and how it spurred violence in kids. I say it's the dammed parents' fault at the end of the day.

    Comment by Anonymous

    Funny, I thought violence did increase over the past decades. But hey.. this show isn't meant for kids anyway, or is it? Whatever the case, TV needs more porn. It teaches our kids after all. It should teach love and not killing each other.

    Yeah, I'd say violence has increased, but if you look at any case in which violence was caused because of media, there is almost always an underlining cause, or the person, in question, is obviously a sociopath who would have done it anyways. Besides that, I know people who were staunchly controlled in what they were exposed to who ended up violent in at least personality because they had a need to express themselves even if it wasn't in the best of ways, and I know people who've been exposed to violent media their whole lives who won't knowingly hurt anything. We can blame media for these faults, but until we ACTUALLY look at each case in a case by case manner and stop instantly passing the blame to violent media, there is no way to know.

    Hey, remember Tom & Jerry?
    Far more violent and cruel than most modern shows. And no one complained about it.

    I even remember a parody of the Three Musketeers ("The Two Mouseketeers") where Tom was executed in the guillotine.

    Not to mention the use of high explosives, the occasional axe-throwing, whacking each other silly...and we let kids watch this.

    Even Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies.

    Oh that's easy to answer
    1) they were animals, a cat and mouse, not in the image of humans, or human children under the age of 18

    2) Itchy and Scratchy was really gory during the 80's and 90's not so much since the turn of the century

    3) This is America, where if a kid really wanted to, he just has to get his ignorant parent to get him all the hentai he wanted, if he didn't have a computer

    really because i didnt know a little girl hanging herself is the same as a mouse and a cat fighting

    That said, I'm not exactly fond of watching shows where little girls get tortured and killed.

    While I wouldn't ban it, it would be nice if they somehow "telegraphed" it so I could avoid such shows.

    I have stopped watching "Kore wa Zombie Desu ka" for that reason - sure that blond girl was a bitch, but the chain killing with a chainsaw was just distasteful; it made me feel a little sick.

    you dont like violence so dont watch it

    this is a classic case of fuckwit being arrogant and selfish

    if i dont like no one gets it

    madoka should not be cancelled censored or altered in any way because some people dont like it they should just not watch it simple

    When the fuck did I say I want it to be cancelled?!

    Learn to read dude.

    I'm all for freedom of expression.

    But it would be nice to get some warning of such content, so I can do exactly as you suggested, avoid it.

    BTW I didn't watch madoka.
    My post was just a "general" comment.
    I rather shows don't do sudden U-turns in tone, especially if it's from nice/silly/fun to ultra-violent/mind-rape.

    There is a possibility to be cancelled, UNLESS, "someone" has to remake the whole storyline without psychological abuse content to both readers & watchers.

    "Don't like, don't watch" is easy to say, and that's true when it comes to like, the Saw movies. But there are shows like Madoka that seem totally innocent on the surface. No way of knowing what level of violence you'll see.

    I don't get why they have to react in such way. Don't like, don't watch. Simple. :(

    Well if that's what they want then why don't they go back to watching the Nanoha series since that was all about the befriending of anyone you've fought.
