um i'm p. sure the mom did the right thing because it waswhich means it was porn.
Oh hey it's illustrated narrative from Japan it must suck right guys?
I mean that's not a racially prejudiced view, right?
It's funny how FP can make an exception for something like Uzumaki, then immediately springboard back into ignorance.
Wow. Facepunch has been getting pretty arrogant. I'm really glad the "Imprison all manga readers!" people aren't in charge of anything important.
sure is jump on the "LOL I HATE ANIME/MANGA/JAPAN" bandwagon
That mom is fucking retarded if she threw her son in the mental hospital over him looking at something kinky. I hate religious moms.
protip: if you're going to defend anime/manga, don't do it while bearing a naked catgirl/shitty generic manga boy-with-eyes-that-are-five-feet-apart avatar
A little late to the party guys. The flame war was 3 pages back
No. I don't care if it's "weeaboo" shit. You don't fucking throw somebody in a mental hospital for reading a book. This is bullshit, and you people are fucking bigots. For the most part, I hate most anime/manga, but you people are terrible.
She is not some sort of hero, getting rid of the "weeaboo" in our youth, she's a batshit insane mother who'd love to indoctrinate her child.
This is wrong. Go ahead and hate weeaboos on a personal level, that's what I do. But forcing them to give up this shit is just fucking tyranny.
At the very most, she should have taken the book since it was apparently pornographic in nature. (Or at least, that's what I'm getting from this.)
Best mother in the world.
I don't understand... why do people* hate anime so much?
wow you guys just turn into fucking morons when anything related to anime/manga comes up
didn't any of you fucking watch pokemon when you were younger
It's funny how you guys will defend banning violent books/comics, but when it comes to violent video games, you fervently defend them.
why the fuck would you put a kid into a mental home for reading manga?
you are all fucked in the head and I hope you never have kids
Wow... you don't put your kid into a mental hospital for reading books, and I don't believe that the kid seriously became insane for reading a manga, the kid must have had some problems with his mentality before that if he becomes insane for reading a damn manga. Damn some moms are dumb beyond belief... im glad I have a mother who uses common sense.
And then they go on to say that these people should be punished for having an interest. Because you know, fuck freedom.
I don't understand something Facepunch:
Do you hate the anime genre, or the people who watch anime and try to copy them?
I hate the latter; still I don't mind them so long they don't mind me, but I don't mind watching animes at all.
akira is my favorite anime
Its a shame Ryu-Gi's mum wasnt like this mum.
Let's put our children into a mental-ward for reading something from a different culture, hur dur.
So does anyone know what he was reading?
Did he honestly think that his mother would accept that?
Not saying that anime sucks but he should really expect his mother to "BAWWWWWW" about that content.
Why does everyone here hate manga? I can understand not liking it but come on this hate is just ridiculous, so what if someone likes some weird Japanese cartoons, that's there business.
I don't think they hate manga as much as they hate the people who like manga.
And the fact of the matter is that the people who obsess and take manga too far speak far louder than those that just simply enjoy it.
despite it being weeaboo shit, she's just another dumb soccer mom.
Anime like "Spirited Away" I can watch, but most of that main stream stuff, like Bleach, are just shit.
Also, that mom sounds like she needs to be put away.
