What? Watsuki of all people? I have nearly all the Rurouni Kenshin books, sans the last 2 volumes. Not only that, but I love his work. How could this happen? I'm so ashamed...

 

I'm also ashamed as well. While I don't have manga/anime, I love the atmosphere, artwork and the designs of the characters. Watsuki was also a huge Samurai Shodown fan like myself and helped designed the characters for 5 like Yokittenora (damn filter, again!) Tokugawa, who is my 2nd favorite character in design and gameplay behind Nakoruru.

 

One of my friends was also a huge fan of Kenshin. Showing him and his friends the article after I read it, we were all disappointed.

Given all the Hollywood scandals coming out, you CAN separate the art from the artist imo. Enjoy the work that's been done, hate the man.

Yes and no. People do what they feel.

 

I'm not boycotting anything to be politically correct, I just won't be able to stop thinking about it while reading the manga now. Especially since it's about kids..assaulting a child is on another level than assaulting an adult person.

You two shouldn't have to feel ashamed. No one saw this coming. Also despite being into some very illegal things, it doesn't change the fact that he's a good writer. It's just super unfortunate for everyone.

I see that phedophile encompass all underage gender while lolicon only under age girl.

It seem like he got illegal child porn since having lolicon hentai porn is legal in japan.

This this.. I am a littel confused here about what's legal and illegal about underage child there?

Even a rock has something it can be used for. There's a way for them to shine that even a jewel can't compare to - Sakamochi Tatsuma :lulz:

I guess "cartoon children" porn is OK in Japan, but actual child porn like most of the first world is illegal...I think?

Pretty much what bail said.

Japan is pretty liberal for their sex entertainment (porn) Eventhough there're laws to be follow. Like no actor under 18 and genital censorship. You can find porn as easily as you can find manga in Japanese bookstore.

@T XD
I think the argument for hentai Lolita is that are cartoon/not real child. So no one get harm. Eventhought there's advocation for Japanese law to ban them.

Yeah, but it's still the same concept. Practically, there's no difference.

Yes there isn't. You're still legitimizing pedophilia and the line is just too thin.

That was the thing I found out when I did a research presentation of hentai (I did for all types: straight, yaoi, yuri, bara, futanari, lolicon, shotacon, guro, the whole shebang) for my Japanese class in college. For lolicon and shotacon hentai, the argument is that it follows fiction and fantasy (cartoon), just its long as its not live media of real-live kids under the age of consent doing it, heading towards pedophilia.
