New Manga Crushed by Tokyo Ordinance

A new manga series was cancelled last week just days before it was to debut online, apparently because the publisher was concerned it might clash with Tokyo’s Youth Healthy Development Ordinance. Creator Arisa Yamamoto said on her blog that editors of Comic Zenon, the website that was to run the manga, contacted her two days before the planned July 1 debut and said that the publishing company had balked because “there was a chance it might be designated harmful literature.”

The story is too old to be commented.
