China Banned 38 Anime’s With More To Be Added!

Published June 10, 2015 by Shay Taree

alright so I’m sure that everyone has read this crazy news of China banning 38 anime titles from being seen and distributed. Some the titles include ones that many of us have watched and loved such as Attack On Titan, Death Note, High School Of The Dead, and Black Butler.

  
Now the reason behind this ban is because many of the anime show graphic violence, dark themes, and in many fighting against authority. It’s seems China feels like watching shows like these will make their citizens want to do these things. Sorry but I think that’s kind of stupid and I don’t agree with this kind of policeing (?) when it comes to forms of entertainment or expression of art. 

  
I mean yes there can be a time and place for it if it’s harmful for society but that seems to be rare and far between. So why ban it? I don’t think the government should have a say in what we can watch but if it’s who can watch it that’s a different story since there is content that isn’t suitable for certain age ranges. But that is purely a suggestion since many of us I’m sure have watched things that we shouldn’t have necessarily been watching. 

So it took me some digging but I found a completely list of the anime’s that were banned and here they are:

Terror in Resonance

Blood-C

Highschool of the Dead

Ergo Proxy

Parasyte

The Skull Man

Another

Inferno Cop

Afro Samurai

Tokyo Ghoul √A

Sword Art Online II

Tokyo ESP

Tokyo Ravens

Devil May Cry

RIN – Daughters of Mnemosyne

The Testament of Sister New Devil

Attack on Titan

Corpse Party

Strike the Blood

Death Note

Deadman Wonderland

Date A Live II

Psycho-Pass

Devilman Lady

School Days

Those Who Hunt Elves

Elfen Lied

High School DxD

Samurai Bride
So, I Can’t Play H!
Girls Bravo: Second Season

Kanokon

Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero

Sakura Diaries

Black Butler

Claymore

Dance in the Vampire Bund

Now I read that more may be added so we will soon see which of our favorite shows will be added to this already crazy list.

But what do you all think of this and how would you feel or what would you do if your government did this where you lived. Comment down below and let me know!

What If Anime Was Banned?

Published May 12, 2015 by Shay Taree

So I had seen a forum post about anime trying to be banned and then after I found a Facebook page devoted to banning anime. But the page could possibly be a complete joke. But regardless it got me thinking about what would I do if anime did get banned.

I think first of all that I would be surely pissed off! 

  
I mean what would banning anime do anyway? It hasn’t hurt anybody and it is just another form of entertainment for people to enjoy. I also think that I would still find a way to enjoy it even if it meant me having to sneak and watch it. 

  
Which when I think about it may be pretty cool but also dangerous. 

Can you actually picture going to jail for watching anime or being fined for buying it. That just seems funny to me and also pretty ridiculous.

But what would you do if anime was banned? Would you still watch it regardless or would you try and find something else to partake in. Comment down below and let me know!
