Update post on the Tokyo Government Anime and Manga Ban

It would seem that Japanese are stupid after all. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government passed and signed into law Bill 156, the amendment to the Youth Healthy Development Ordinance. The Bill amounts to nothing more than a ban on what the Government calls “Virtual Porn and Violence”. One of the few things that escaped were real life photography and the Rape based novels by Tokyo’s Governor Ishihara. The ban is so broad and up for interpretation that anything can be covered. This is indeed a sad day for Otaku everywhere.
