Funniest thing I’ve read in a while. They just need to have their blackface Obama promoting it now.

What’s amazing is that somewhere along the line, a manager read the description of this game and decided it was worth producing, and his bosses OK’d it.

Very, very sick. Who would want to play this game?

On second thought, don’t tell me. I don’t want to know.

The Rapeman ... manga and movies ...

I'm not sure if the context makes the videogame more appalling or less ...

My “womyns study” major sister in law pointed out to me and my brother after a Samurai movie marathon that...

“There is no seduction in Japanese cinema that doesn't include a large element of rape.”

I have kept my eye on it from that point on, and have yet to find a contrary example.

They are freaks. If encode Jap fansubs on the side (volunteer) and IF you ever get the chance to watch Jap XXX anime (hentai), it’s MOSTLY rape.

I was stationed in Okinawa for a year and got to see a lot more of Japanese pop culture than was probably good for me.

Strange, STRANGE stuff.

Given his position on the Born Alive bill one has to wonder . . .

Rape is a big seller in Japan. I’m not kidding.
Some of it is even girl on girl object rape. Mostly hentai.

I still read the current manga stuff and the artistry is amazing but for a so-called xenophobic people, I see more blondes and brunettes in their manga than DC comics.

The thing is... this company says it’s not available for foreign sales. Well... maybe not. But it’s all over the internet via Torrent, etc. (I just did a google search on the game name all by itself.) SHAMEFUL! Where is the Japanese government ministry on this one?!!!!!!

I’m almost afraid to ask but ... what octopus stuff?

Did either of you watch “I Survived a Japanese Game Show” t.v. show last summer? It sounds like it’s pretty tame version of Japanese culture, but the Japanese people in the audience certainly seemed to get a kick out of humiliating the American contestants.

There's a certain species of pr0n in Japan that features women (usually) and octopi ... and that's all I have to say about that.

It is illegal to actually draw human organs penetrating another in Japan, so they made “tenticles”. Mostly alien, or from the sea, the rapist enters all openings at once. Nasty stuff.

NEVER look for Japanese Anime with your kids. NEVER let them look alone. Pokemon and Studio Ghibli movies are wonderful but without warning they are looking at La Blue Girl. Yuck.

The Game Show was great! Ever watch the real “Iron Chef” on FLN or “Ninja Warrior” on G4? They’re amazing!
