Tokyo’s Revised Youth Ordinance Amendment Bill Posted1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
Takashi Yamaguchi, a lawyer, opposed the Tokyo Metropolitan Government’s bill to restrict manga, anime, and games with sexual and “anti-social” depictions of children.
He has posted the revised version of the bill that the government plans to submit at the end of this month.
The proposed bill would require the industry to also self-regulate the sale and renting of “manga, anime, and other images (except for real-life photography)” that “unjustifiably glorify or emphasize” certain sexual or pseudo sexual acts.
Another section of the revised bill would allow the government to directly restrict the sale and renting of the above images if the depicted acts are also “considered to be excessively disrupting of social order” such as rape.
