Japaneses comic series creator busted for child porn

Nobuhiro Watsuki, the creator of the long-running “Rurouni Kenshin”
comic series about a former samurai assassin turned justice fighter, has
arrested for child pornography, according to Japanese media reports. He
faces charges that could get him a year in prison, as well as a fine.

Tokyo police found DVDs of unclothed girls in their early teens in
Watsuki’s possession.

In September the artist started a new “Rurouni Kenshin” story for a
magazine published by Shueisha. The publisher suspended publication of
the series following the Dec. 4 issue. “We take these (media reports)
seriously as a company” it said in a statement.

Launched in 1994 in the “Weekly Shonen Jump” comic magazine for boys
“Rurouni Kenshin” has spawned animated TV series and features, video
games, a 2016 stage production by the Takarazuka all-women’s troupe, and
three live action films, released in Japan from 2012 to 2014 by Warner.

Well, that's a surprise.

Nobuhiro Watsuki's most famous work is Rurouni Kenshin, which ran on
Shonen Jump from 1994 to 1999. I recall the manga containing a lot of
text pages where the author was explaining his various motivations.
Ironically, he just started a sequel to the series this September that
will go into hiatus due to controversy.

Many of Japanese manga characters are hyper-sexualized as you can see in
many female characters having abnormally and unrealistically large
breasts in One Piece. Even Dragon Ball started off rather raunchy and
inappropriate at the beginning. In the recent years they toned things
done due to parental protests that these depictions are harmful to
children and many magazines have geared the materials based on the age
of the readers.

That has possibly nothing to do with the theme, you mentioned. It
maybe just the opposite.

The lasses' preferred breast size is directly proportional to the age
of the gents. This is the result of surveys.

So, if the breast size of the character increases, this is probably a
sign that the average age of audience has increased, too.
