You'd think after 40 years now, these companies would've figured out that westerners don't want anime and manga changed for them.

Doesn't look as bad as yesterday, seems Japan saw the wrotingnon the wall and told him to shut up, just more formally.

Question is need censoring FOR WHAT? The most not even spicy, but PERVERTED content I ever saw in manga came from CLAMP, which were mostly middle-aged wives writring. Which were published as shoujo, but had a really big shonen audience.
They need more cendoring to be like the western failures from the last decade? We need LESS CENSORING to produce memorable things like Green Arrow & Green Latern, Swamp Thing, The Killing Joke, Watchmen, or God Loves, Man Kills.

Because censorship always increases sales right?

Japanese companies want money and unlike the West, they simply deliver a good product people want instead of shaming you into liking a product.

Modern anime is too sexual? I would love to see one of these clowns pick up an anime from the 80's or early 90's. Lord Almighty, if they ever saw one episode of Tenchi…

I suppose countries like Australia are the reason why the anime community has kept those dumb fbi jokes going for so long.

Don't worry!… he & especially the company he the CEO of will never prosper out of it; if the president of Kadokawa goes woke, then he'll go broke like rest who'd moronic enough to even entertain the attempts to chase that dragon!

The manga/anime president is a filthy traitor for suggesting such heresy.

Good news though.

The dude basically went dark today and their subsidiaries made a public Apology on his behalf, see the thing about this president of kadokawa is that he already landed himself in scalding water praising BLM athletes.

But now politicians, manga artists and writers, the Japanese citizens and everyone else are calling for his resignation

Kadakowa needs to join the direct market. Just hire a translator or two and make your own hosting site and BOOM.
Instant money.

This is a terrible idea. Nobody in the world is more use to piracy than anime and manga fans. If you try to censor stuff right as it’s starting to go mainstream and make a ton of money, everyone will just switch to piracy.

As an Manga artist and a drawer of lewd Anime Girls I have to say it sucks. IG/FB won't even let me promote anything anymore. Like I even purged my page and still nothing 😒. Recently had my art removed currently have 2 strikes on my IG for posting Art. WTF.

I would rather see Japan's manga powerhouses tell Google and Apple to get stuffed and open their own united storefront. I don't read the spicy stuff either but I hate the two-faced double standards at Google and Apple.

How mutch censorship do we still need? I mean, certain Manga gets already censored up when they become anime….. Some of the "spiciest" anime out there are already a "family friendly" version of the even Spicer manga they come from…. What, now we need to make every anime purist prude romance, just because America say so? 😑

It really sucks that these guys are in charge of publishing some of my favorite manga. It's bad enough they haven't published Tokyo revengers and paperback form in America and now they want to censor creators?

So they want to censor manga… Meanwhile they film porn.

I rest my case. This is all a global cultural revolution and the corporations use journalism in conjuncture with Twitter as a cover to change cultural heritage and tradition.

In other words – "We hate racism and sexism. We are anti-racism and anti-sexism. Anyone who does not do as we say is racist and sexist."

It's all a game. That's how you get puritans talking about sexism in cartoons and anime, meanwhile the porn industry is empowering. It's hilarious at a certain point.

Apparently there was such a backlash that a subsidiary of Kodakawa stated they would NOT be going through with self censorship and other people including politicians and mangaka are pushing back against this nightmare. So for the time being Anime and Manga are safe. We need to encourage our brothers and sisters over in japan to not let up and keep on fighting back to make sure that Manga and Anime dominates the world.

Amazon and Apple refusing to carry "spicy" manga on their digital platforms just means there's an exploitable opportunity for someone to cater to that niche. A wise business would be creating their own manga/anime streaming service to carry those products, rather than advocating to censor and water down a product that the market has demonstrable interest in so as to be carried by your competitors.

Seriously, I would buy so much more manga if it wasn't such a pain in the ass to get. The manga industry is throwing away a golden opportunity for distributing their own translated content globally on an app they control, without having to pay the Apple/Amazon overlords their cut. Likewise for anime. I've been paying a monthly fee for Crunchyroll specifically to support anime creators, but more and more they're censoring content or spending the money on creating their own woke garbage. I would happily cancel my membership there and give that money to a Japan-controlled streaming platform, or even buy individual series outright if the option to do so was made available to me. Instead, I buy the fraction of content that Apple or Crunchyroll choose to allow on their platforms, and the rest gets pirated because I literally have no other choice other than buying blurays from sketchy international shops.

I agree with RGE in that we need at least one Japanese media firm to go woke & end up broke to serve as a warning to the others what will happen if they pander to "global standards."

Maybe the fact that everyone has to conform to what Apple and Google want is the real issue.

Apple and Google won't permit Manga Apps, like real apps not like CrunchyRolls piss poor attempt at a Manga app since they can't update the fucking thing and delete older chapters for no reason, then the alternative is simple: you offer the app third party, have users install it themselves and then do the subscription service through app's site or the app itself. If the app is properly age restricted then its 100% on Google and Apples for not making that money and fans would be 100% onboard if the money they spend goes 100% to the Anime and Manga Industry. I'm pretty sure 90% of fan servicey Manga and Anime can be toned down and it won't impact the final product but if its found out that the Japanese releases are different than the western ones then you better believe fans will drop that app like a bad habit.

Mmmh… maaaybe fuck Apple and Google then?

Welcome to America. Tearing a man in half by the legs is A-OK, but a [CENSORED BY YOUTUBE] is COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE THINK OF THE CHILDREN.

Though I feel like I have to remark on something. Supposedly there's been major backlash over this, according to the other comments. I'm gonna just say the quiet part out loud, what's with getting into such a tiff about this while ignoring domestic censorship laws? I feel like if you're a resident of Japan and you're going to to get mad and screech about censorship, then you might as well go whole hog and screech about how your full blown [CENSORED BY YOUTUBE] material is under legal obligation to be censored as well. No point in half-assing it at this juncture, if you ask me.

Don't even get me started on Youtube shadow-deleting comments with words it doesn't like. No, no, no, your comment totally got posted! What? You reopened the page and it's MIA? No, no, no, you're just crazy.

You guys are late to the party as there is a update. Japan did not like it and fought back hard that even politicians got involved. We don't have to worry about censorship.
