Russia bans (certain anime series from a genre of) anime

Postby The Derpy Democratic Republic Of Herp » Wed May 05, 2021 10:35 am

sause

So Russia has banned isekai anime for "promoting reincarnation beliefs"

I am now assuming that the Russian courts all play mighty number 9.


On a serious note, banning art because it doesn't line up with your religious beliefs is bad and stupid. People have the right to belief any religion they want to.

Also saying that isekai anime seriously promotes religious beliefs is dumb, bad and, stupid.

This is an attack on free speech and art.

What say you nsg?

This is so silly. I feel like whenever a ban like this comes about, they're missing the entire point of the piece of media they're banning. Its just so far removed from reality.
Guess what, I'm radical left

There is absolutely nothing in that claim to support that it was banned for promoting ideas of reincarnation.
Moreover, some of the scenes in those shows contain violence, sexual relations, drinking alcohol, and other, sometimes, illegal activities.

Hence, a prosecutor in St. Petersburg indicated that those kinds of segments violate article 242 of the criminal code of the Russian Federation. The article says that clips with explicit imagery, violence, etc. may cause harm to the mental health of many young people.

Agreed, if they banned it for the above mentioned topics they have a good point.

I believe it depends on the context of said violence.

Since this is obviously ok.

That can't be right. Lots of other genres of TV have violence, sexual relations, drinking alchohol, and illegal activities. This is crazy and just blatant censorship for no particular reason.

Probably depends on the context and if the show is expected to mainly be watched by younger people.

Apparently Russia has baned more anime before. From the sause

Recently, they banned Death Note, Inuyashiki, and Tokyo Ghoul for promoting violence and went as far as banning Crunchyroll for violating Russian laws.

Id much rather Russia ban anime like "The Irregular at Magi High School" that have and at times promote incestual relationships than ones about religious views.

I am not for banning anything like this that effectively restricts a person's right to free choice.

They were banned for not being thicc enough.

But seriously censorship like this is dumb.

I can't imagine Russian Judges having to look over scenes from famous animes to seriously determine if they should be banned but here we are.

Out of all of the anime they could be outraged about like, oh, I dunno... Shotacon or Lolicon, which are about pedophilia... Redo of Healer which is a rape fantasy...

They went with... An opposition to the belief in reincarnation... Because they hate Buddhism and Hinduism too?

I always thought isekai reflected lazy writing around dumbed-down D&D fanfiction more than anything deeply cultural or religious. Also, hi, long time no see, it's me LP.
