The latest mangaka to be moaning about abuse at the hands of the movie studio they signed the rights to their work away to is Mari Matsuzawa, who complains bitterly that her healthy chastity belt manga Saikin Imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashiin Da Ga has been “made into an adult movie” and “it was decided after I already agreed so I couldn’t do anything about it!”




The movie opens on the 17th and stars Tenka Hashimoto as the girl who gets to wear the belt all the time, with the film’s content raunchy enough to have secured it an R15+ rating.


Matsuzawa complains that her utterly innocent and safe for all ages manga was perverted into a pornographic monstrosity by the tricksters at the studio:

“Only after it was all finished and the release decided did I find out they had made a manga serialised in a shonen manga magazine [Dragon Age] into an adult movie! And after I could do nothing about it – horrible!

Couldn’t they have consulted with me about the story and explained this before filming? I think they could have. And now it is too late.”

She says that despite leaving all the checking up to her publisher and the contract she signed being adhered to properly, “there is such a thing as etiquette and trust between people which transcends what it is written in a contract” – although the absence of complaints about the sum agreed does at least suggest she was paid properly this time.

Online there are doubts about all this for some reason:

“Thermae Romae was bad enough, now this…”

“Kadokawa up to its usual tricks I see.”

“Come on, considering the content of the manga this is an outrageous complaint for her to make…”

“R15 doesn’t exactly differ from the target age range of Dragon Age now does it? What the hell is she on about, it isn’t an adult movie.”

“Calling a 15+ movie ‘adult’ is really pushing it.”

“In other words, this is marketing for the movie – ‘look how sexy it is!'”

“Any faithful adaptation of the original would be R15.”

“At least the anime was decent…”

“What does this woman think contracts are for?”

    I don't know about the rest of you guys but I failed to see how being more erotic than anticipated is detrimental to the movie.

    If this is your bottom line, you are a person too easy to deal with. On the other hand, you tends to see the bright sides our of things that are despair for most people. Good for you.

    But the thing is the movie and the anime AND the manga are all equally erotic!

    My Dear Pedo Boy,

    While I agree that your analysis is salient, I must state that erotica need not necessarily be obvious but can instead be subtle. Many people prefer subtle ero. I think in that context, the work as presented in the manga would be more applicable. Overt ero is likely to also cheapen the work. While a work with the sophistication of non-hentai anime needs a corresponding 3D counterpart.

    subtlety can be a powerful element but the original source material was about as subtle as a kick to the nuts.

    I agree. That was subtle and borderline ero. When you make it more overtly ero, you spoil it, that sort of stuff is aplenty.

    Come on. There was typical sexual innuendo going on. That was no hentai or typical Japanese AV stuff. Which is basically - screwing.

    Most likely, the movie will just use the plot as an excuse for endless fanservice without doing the plot any justice. The great thing about the anime was that despite being so explicit it still had a good plot.

    It really isn't considering what was in it, it is her reputation that she is worried about.

    More hilarious is that movie itself is basically full-blown lesbian porn and still rated just R-15 and screened in cinemas.
    Here are some shots of lesbian action between Hashimoto and Mayu (who plays Hiyori) from preview DVD: (NSFW)
    Now you may understand why mangaka is so upset.

    Holy shit that look hot! Her Anime is pretty much the same so here's what I'm gonna say: Woman: you made a series for otaku's entertainment please please please: stop bitching. You knew you should've saw this coming. Innocent and safe for all ages? LOL!!! Moaning and lesbian touching is now "Innocently cuddling" according to Japan.

    People complain that an already highly provocative and erotic series is getting a rating suitable to it's content? Alrighty then, must be a bunch of under age kids that can't get into it at the theaters when it comes out, else they wouldn't be complaining.

    And one comment said that the show "was about as subtle as a kick in the nuts", and that's putting it mildly.

    But they didn't made an adaption of the series, they made a porn with the series's title but from the content it has nothing to do with it, the characters look nothing alike.

    And do you? Or you just watched the anime adaptation?

    The manga, despite having semi-naked scenes, chastity belt and scenes of the imouto touching herself/the ghost girl touching her, it really does somehow manage this odd sense of innocent, ero-kawaii, largly due to the artstyle of Matsuzawa. I mean the manga is a fun and enjoyable read, however despite the nakedness and touchings, it was mostly for comedy purpose, and is no "jack-off to" material...unlike the live-action adaptation. Real people doing same thing (naked and touchings) that fictional characters does for comedy could easily turn into something perverted intentional or not.

    The Manga was uncensored compared to the Anime sure it may have been less extreme(manga can't do sounds or that moaning effect that make Otaku's get horny)but its not that far off.

    As mangaka I would rather complain about the actors not looking like the characters, it is not like if cosplay wigs were still expensive these days.

    I am a freelancer, just like mangaka, she is largely at fault here. She needed to read the damn contract and make certain her perceived reputation was not going to be tarnished. Anything not in the contract should have been brought up by her and demanded an adaptation with G or PG-12 rating. PG-12 is a normal rating for anime in theaters.

    Japan has 4 ratings, G, PG-12, R15+, R18+. Each of those ages require an ID check and they are (theoretically) not allowed to enter –even if- accompanied by an adult (unlike PG-13 and R in the US). This could be a big blow if she thinks her stories are all-ages/teen and should have been an obvious term in the contract.

    If she thinks her original story was PG-12 she's on fucking drugs.

    Well, the manga itself apparently was safe for all ages (how, that's another matter... still don't understand how that happened).. So I can understand she's disturbed by this. Still.. she should have read the contract better, and put in an option where she can deny the use of the IP if they didn't pertain to the style the mangaka wanted.

    Yeah, I think she(?) was slapped by a stack of yukichi's while signing the contract...totally understandable mistake on her part though.

    (For the non-initiated ones, yukichi's are 10,000 yen bills, due to it being the name of the old guy that's printed on them.)
