    [Anime/Manga] CNN Brands Anime & Manga as "Child Porn", What?

    Article: http://otakuusamagazine.com/LatestNe...Porn-5747.aspx
    Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXkCFqNrDas

    Just.. What? I wonder if they also realize the legal age of consistent in japan is about 13 years old..
    But Either way, This is pretty stupid, They've even taken(as shown in picture in article and video) covers/parts of the manga in which had 0 sexual visuals at all.. And censored them to make it look like they were, Prime example of that is shown in the article.

    The cover image is even suggestively blurred out below the neck to imply that a sex act is taking place. You can see the actual, rather normal, cover on Amazon.jp. Frankly, CNN didn't even need to misrepresent a comic to find something damning in Melonbooks... but they did so anyway, which speaks to their standards.
    Well yes you do have "lolicon" which in most cases I've found in anime lolicons are females aged 16+(This is legal in japan) depicted as being small and tiny.. They are not actual children.
    I personally Find this... Incredibly stupid.

    So I have to ask how often does CNN try shit like this? I honestly never watch TV or news, so I found out about this through a friend of mine who then linked me to a youtuber who gave his opinion on the fact ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDecxr8GAjw ) and I generally agree with him

    Anyone else got any opinion on this?

    Edit: I can get the point of this when it comes down to things like Hentai and stuff ect.. But when it comes down to general, Normal mangas and Anime, which is the prime thing they always mention, rather then hentai.. So, Its a pretty stupid and uneducated report on the manga/anime world..

    Silly news networks are silly as almost always, worst thing is some people believe everything they hear on tv today and follows it blindly.

    *Rolls eyes, stares up to the heavens* "Oh God; save us from the uneducated morons who couldn't research a subject for the truth of the matter for five damn minutes if their lives depended on it."

    To the educated: Anime ≠ Cartoon porn
    To the uneducated who believe anything: Anime = cartoon porn.

    Looks like we'll have to wait yet another generation before we can see if people can see once for a moment in their lives. As in the words of Max Planck;

    A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.

    Long live the Hellscream! For True Horde! For the Iron Horde!!!

    The better question is: Does it really matter? I mean, is it really relevant to us what some news networks think about stuff like that?

    Not to turn this into a political debate or start flaming, but I've noticed people on MMO-C get upset all the time whenever Bill O'rielly said something related to either video games or movies. So... obviously some people think this stuff is relevant.
