as you know im not really a huge fan of the loli craze myself, but creating laws to limit imagination can only end up hurting more than helping. as with everything once a law is passed will it be abused and used just to destroy a industry. japan should be helping the industry within this time of crisis, not trying to destroy parts of culturewhat define japan from other country's (the more seedy parts of a culture are normally what are remembered most unfortunately).

The bill received strong opposition from manga creators, the publishing industry, the Writers Guild of Japan and the Japan Federation of Bar Associations, and was rejected by the Metropoiltan Assembly on 16 June 2010
Discuss the possible end of lolicon
there is better ways to try and change how an industry works than pretty much trying to kill the imagination it runs from, with the backlash what has been happening lately from japan it also shows how much of a bad idea this is in the long term.
in short, i can understand the merit behind such a change, but i do think it is being done in the wrong way and all japan is gonna end up doing is creating a lot more disorder in the industry rather than improving it
