Does anyone know why - and how - the "nudity must be blurred" law still exists in Japan? It was instituted by the US during the WWII occupation. How the fuck is it *still* in effect in an eastern society like Japan?

Isn't there also some genital parade in Japan?


Any material that might negatively affect the 'natural' feeling of shame that is linked to anything sexual is banned by law.

In practice, they have for some reason decided to just blur or cover with black bars or make a 'proud sword' a proud swor and call it good after that. It's more a practice than a law.


I think it's some vague "obscenity" law that has come to be defined as "literally anything goes just as long as you blur out the genitals".

Fun fact: child porn was legal in Japan until 1999, when it was made illegal due to pressure from the US.


>Japanese politicians
>changing any law ever



What is a "proud sword"?

Does Uboachan know of Gegege No Kitaro?

I love GeGeGe no Kitaro. I've only seen the '60s version and the '80s version, though.


Have you read the Manga? Pretty damn good, though there isn't much translated sadly.


File: 1383251630134.gif (30.96 KB, 475x475, 2606429.gif)

Speaking of which, you can find the manga here:


34 chapters, though Kitaro's Night Tales ends rather abruptly and the whole thing gets rebooted into one-shots. So keep that in mind while reading.


did you guys see the short anime Hakaba Kitaro that came out a couple of years ago? it was the fuckin shit… only 12 episodes, though


File: 1384875022761.jpg (209.61 KB, 500x500, 513945.jpg)

I watched it right after finishing the manga. Really good stuff! As I understand there's a Kitaro series every decade, and it's been this way since 1960.

Ascension Day is traditionally celebrated on a Thursday, the fortieth day of Easter (following the count given in Acts 1:3),
although some Roman Catholic provinces have moved the observance to the following Sunday.

So, with the final episode of Watamote having aired on Crunchyroll yesterday, what did everyone think of it?

It was rather depressing than cringeful. I began imagining what Tomoko would be like as an adult and was instantly reminded of my high school friends who could never get a date. They just sit at home all day now watching anime and soap operas, play ACNL, and babble on Twitter about nothing into the void.

And then I realised that was also me.
Then I cringed.


I can only wonder what your feels were when you saw that one episode with the club submission.


Are they happy?

People aren't made for happiness. Fleeting satisfaction, perhaps, but definitely not happiness.

Hey ubuu, what's a good site to read light novels online?
Seems like I only find stupid wiki shits, and they're ugly as fuck.

Online or where you can download it. I don't really care that much.

I dunno why the moon wizadry forum doesn't have a single topic on moonspeak, so here's all my links. Some are shit, some are not.

Fantastic dictionary. You can look up kanji by radicals here, which is fucking great. The rest of the functionality is basically ripped off of
which is a little bit more complex. There's sentences, there's a name dictionary, tons of specific/specialized words/phrases.

"All Japanese All The Time" is the Japanese teaching coach everyone should have. If Khatz is not already your god, he will be.
The Japanese textbook you never knew you wish you had.

JLPT Kanji for levels 4 3 and 2. Pretty handy. I like it because it has more compounds listed than the About site, and I fucking love kanji compounds.

I look forward to that day.

So, more audio, as if you couldn't just vomit some kanji into the YouTube search bar and find a shitton of it yourself:

Simple stories with pictures.

A few stories, this time with transcriptions and vocab.

News with transcriptions.
Do you even how great that is.

Would you like to be tortured, flayed, brutalized and a martyr for the sins of others? Pic related.


Wondering… has anyone here seen/heard of the trend "Don’t search for Madoka on pixiv"?

Apparently there is a specific artist on pixiv who "is uploading in masses of extremely horrific images and cryptic and eerie illustrations followed by death threats and murder intentions that are causing a huge commotion among the fans and the pixiv staff."

I checked out their (姫草アリスの憂鬱 or The Melancholy of Himekusa Alice's) pixiv and I was actually very underwhelmed. (I actually thought some of em' were pretty cool but /slightly/ unsettling)

Anyway, here's a link if you're curious (gore warning):

I saw someone translate the titles, here are some of em':
"there’s no way that miracles or magic exist,
there’s no miracles or magic,
children are the first artists,
to love is to kill,
love you’ve become used to is routine work and conservative,
