It's easy to understand why some of this stuff would be targeted (loli H-doujin, for instance), but I do agree, it's getting rather ridiculous how much they're targeting this sort of stuff. Most of the laws enacted against it are just by politicians who want to give the impression that they're "doing something against child porn" to the common voter.

there are some points that anime(specially H) may go over boards with the young characters, japan has almost no taboos in many different kinds of media but in society they are one of the most respectable, kind, and polite people. i mean if you look crazy in japan nobody will judge。
