Tokyo legislation recently passed a bill that might jeopardize the freedom of speech video games, manga, and anime producers have. The issue has been going on since the start of 2010, and this new bill just fanned the flames.

Dan Kunimitsu, a famous Japanese blogger expressed that the current legislation is not a “ban per se”, but it does limit a company to produce materials that are harmful to those under 18 years-old.
