Yoshinobu Yamada points out that restrictions on eroticism in manga have increased

Through his official Twitter account, the author Yoshinobu Yamada, creator of works with adult themes (not hentai) What Deathtopia, Eden no Ori (Cage of Eden) and Satanophany, posted an update on Twitter noting that restrictions on eroticism in the manga industry are becoming more stringent.

«Eroticism is no longer an option today. More and more restrictions have been imposed and even past publications have had to be modified. I know I should be more elegant in my erotic expression, but I can’t do it… Personally, I’m already tired of this.“Wrote the author.

The author also responded to a response from one of his followers, who wrote: “The situation must already be difficult for you to have published something like that. Still, your new book is coming to my house soon!». Yamada replied: «I don’t like to slow down my thinking and writing… I was hoping things would be a little better after the Olympics, but I was naive. Thank you for your continued support».

The news was shared in comment forums in Japan, where opinions such as:

  • «Young Magazine without eroticism is just one more magazine. That the children go to read their shonen in their corresponding magazines».
  • «Eroticism is a good form of expression, but it should not be restricted».
  • «It’s true that Satanophany is too erotic for a general magazine, but… I don’t want publishers to do anything to discourage writers. Can’t we do something about it?».
  • «The effects of regulation have reached this point. First of all, it is very strange to regulate eroticism in manga. And every time it gets stronger, people are losing their jobs little by little … it is something terrible».
  • «I really don’t understand what these new regulations are for… It is the military and eroticism that have developed the world».
  • «First of all, it’s strange that restrictions are placed on non-shonen magazines, didn’t we have freedom here while the kids were reading their superhero sleeves?».
