Russia Starts Banning Death Note And Other Anime

BUtterfield 8

This Wednesday, a St. Petersburg court has banned the Death Note, Tokyo Ghoul, and Inuyashiki anime after concerns that teenagers would mimic on-screen violence.

The district court stated, “Every episode contains cruelty, murder, violence.” 

In mid-December, five lawsuits were filed against 49 Russian sites distributing anime. State prosecutors also called for the court to ban other shows including Elfen Lied and Naruto in yet-to-be-decided suits. 

Oleg Erlikh, an expert from St. Petersburg Academy of Postgraduate Pedagogical Education, said Death Note was “potentially dangerous for a modern child.”

The ruling bans two websites from distributing the Death Note and Inuyashiki anime and one website from showing Tokyo Ghoul. As the Moscow Times points out, the state-run RIA Novosti news agency says the ban only impacts these specific sites. However, Meduza explains that Russia’s censorship agency, Roskomnadzor, could interpret the ban as more encompassing for these anime. 

There have been calls to ban Death Note some 2013. At that time, a 15 year old girl died by suicide, with 4 copies of the Death Note manga discovered in her room. Some blamed the comic for the girl’s death, and a group of parents even appealed directly to Russian President Vladimir Putin to ban the manga on the grounds that it was harmful to the country’s youth.

So if they watch Naruto, will kids crash into things going "RASENGAN"? Will Russia's track team run like this? 

 

Pls... :billie:

 

Suicide is no joke but its probably to do with the environment rather than an anime. Something was going on deep within her, and its tragic but I don't think you can blame an anime for that.

Wait! The Russian government is worried about teenagers mimicking violence in anime? But they don't do anything about the violence that it's already happening everyday? Domestic violence, the constant bullying and abuse against gay people, etc.

I'm... :awkney:

Well... this sounds like nothing to do with anime inciting violence and everything to do with politics.
