LOL, one thumb up for japan, fck them all(meaning of those bill's creator).

Not a lolicon, but, the fck that would ruin the whole japan thing about some manga's source to make jokes from, or better say ruin it all, so fail whoever create this stupid bill to prohibit NON-EXISTEN characters that looks like child to stop existing, sound so narrow minded, like if that would issued what is happening in our world, save the child(what child precisely)? they should have think of that about a couple of decade ago, when the whole stuff was taking its air.

Parents should be the responsible of their mingers, and not blame this artistic genre, make it solely for adult(should do), but BAN it!!!
