Possible Eroge Ban In Japan


A possible new law is in the work in Japan. This law would ban certain subjects from being used in Eroge. If this law passes it would ban the use of the following terms in text or image form:

Rape
Loli
Gang Rape
Assault
Brutality
“Reverse” Rape
Girl
Adultery
“Reverse” Assault
Compulsion
Gangbang
Student Council
Bestiality
Bondage
Coercion
Train Molestation
Enjo Kousai (Prostitution)
Incest
Torture
Binding
Pregnancy
Violation
Slaves
Pregnant Women
Confinement
Conception



This would be a huge blow to the Eroge market as the majority of Eroge games out there have 1 or more of these included. Although some companies such as Key who make "all ages" versions of there games won't be hit as hard, but other companies that focus solely on the adult aspects of the games will have a difficult time remaining in business.

Discussions of this possible ban can be found at various sites such as

Otakuism- This is the best discussion on the topic I've found.
