If I remember correctly, he was found guilty not too long ago...

http://otakureview.today.com/2008/12/11/the-case-against-christopher-handley/

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/editorial/2008-12-11/christopher-handley/carl-horn

I understand why people would deem such things inappropriate, but they just sent him to prison for longer than a charge of MANSLAUGHTER.

Oh. My. GAWD.

I wanna kick someone in the head about this.

I swear! Fucking porno on the internet EVERYWHERE! Playboy for sale on magazine stands, Maxim Magazine.... I could go on with this shit... Why isn't this donned obscene.... Some of these porno sites AIM to make girls look fucking 14 because some people are just that fucked up. How can you possibly argue against that?? Can you say "Oh well Playboy is art"? Umm the answer would be no. Manga is just as much art, if not more....
Now if the govt has some issue with Japan... there should be a public disclaimer that says "DONT FUCKING ORDER SHIT FROM THE JAPS!" . The government is trying to regulate, mediate, and control what we read. Ray Bradbury saw that shit coming. Bloody fucking hell. I'm almost irate at the amount of bullshit spilling forth from this case. So what if the drawings LOOKED young???? They are DRAWINGS FOR GOD'S SAKE!

This guy, because the government is being retarded, could have his entire life ruined because he wanted to read a manga. What a great way to put an example out there for other manga readers. Don't read manga anymore or the Government will go ape-shit on your ass.

omfg.

I can't believe what this country is coming to. There better be a better reason for this. Like a Homeland security issue... like maybe the makers of the manga are secretly terrorists and the US doesn't want to out them quite yet. Or we just have a bunch of dicks running the legal system.

I vote the latter option.

If his lawyer doesn't win. I'm going to shit a brick.seriously.

It's not the fact that it was porn that gets me.

It's that they were fucking DRAWINGS. They're protecting the rights of imaginary people.

Well yeah.. that too... :/
But apparently that isn't doing anything for his case so why not just shove some porno in their faces and lets watch them not arrest us for gawking over a REAL GIRL in a violating manner.

such idiocy.

I have a question. Who's definition of "obscene" are we going on? I mean, to an old lady, saying something like the word "hell" in their presence is considered obscene. (No offense to anyone who agrees with them.) But seriously. 20 YEARS?! What the hell?! Thats bordering on insanity.

It is if you're desperate, I suppose. Otherwise, it's rubbish.

Ok, how the heck can you tell the age of drawn fictional character? Better yet why the heck are they going through the man's mail? I mean inspecting its one thing but if you see that its manga, why inspect it further?

Charging him as a sexual offender? For a freaking manga? Who did he offend? Honestly, did the "fictional" character suddenly come to life and say stop looking at me? I swear our government has nothing better to do. Oh no we are not at war, we dont need to protect our borders, instead lets just invade all privacy and read everything that comes into America and then place judgment on whether or not "we" see it as obscene. The dang book wasn't for their eyes to begin with. I swear people can be so stupid sometimes.
