    Seriously, it's not hard to find this kind of stuff thanks to Japan and the internet, so they better get their handcuffs ready.
    In fact, I think one of my perverted friends had a beastiality/pedophilia all in one and he loved showing it off.

    Here's the prince's view on this:
    That stuff is bad and shouldn't exist HOWEVER since it does exist that means that it is to late to perfectly annihilate all copies, from this point it is only possible to prevent new ones from being mass produced so if the government is going to be arresting anyone (or suing anyone) it should be the companies who make them not the people who bought them at the store. (most likely these people didn't even know this law existed.)

    The companies making this are in japan.
    This case happened in the US.

    That is unrelated to what I am saying. (I was using examples of the less specific kind) I am saying that the government shouldn't be putting the people who bought those things in jail.

    So... Those Mangas are basically Bestiality + Minors Engaged in sexual acts.

    Well... Makes sense... Hmm... And what happens if it wasn't bestiality or minors in these mangas? Would the person still be arrested?

    Probably not, if you are saying that it was just any other manga like Bleach, KHR, or *shudder* Naruto.

    Yeah. And also, what happens if you go to Japan and happen to buy manga. Would bringing the manga to North America cause you to be arrested?

    That doesn't make any kind of sense at all.

    It's a fucking cartoon. Bestiality/underage sex is illegal because the subject is incapable of understanding consent and thus is typically harmed by it. Cartoons cannot be harmed. You can't hurt a fictional being. There is no victim here, except the one being put in jail for no reason.

    Anyone who defends this sick fuck should be beaten with a bat. Who cares what medium it was in, it's still fucking disgusting and just wrong. What sick son of a bitch actually wants to beat off to fucking animals and fucking children?

    15 years minimum seems a little too light. I say 25 at least.

    Referencer has a great point. Even though it was sickening, it's unjust that he's being thrown in jail for looking at pornography on a piece of paper (It's a cartoon image, so the type of pornography shouldn't matter at all).

    EDIT: Guild, how do you know he got pleasure from it? He could have just been collecting it like the title says.

    Oh and well, duh. It is disgusting. Honestly, there must be something wrong with people if they were to buy these things...

    If it's any of the manga's I listed or anything along their lines (the ones without underage people having sex in any way) then probably not.

    The government has not impressed upon you the right to decide what cartoons I can look at and what cartoons I can't.

    I'm can't really say he is a little old to be collecting manga's since there isn't really a set age limit...it's weird, but who am I to judge.
    Just the rest of this is creepy...very creepy [​IMG]

    If this was regular "cartoon porn", I would say that it is madness, but as Guild said it is sick and he should be locked as much as they can give him.

    I don't care if people beat off to hentai, but this is child pornography and bestiality. Real or not, it promotes sex with minors and sex with animals, both of which are illegal. You can read whatever sick cartoons you want, as long as it complies with the laws of your respective country.
