Apparently, Manga is Porn in Japan; Who Knew?

Who knew? A judge ruled that Monotori Kishi, a Japanese manga writer, violated a 1957 law against distributing obscene literature.

The weird thing is that in Japan, a ton of the stuff on the streets is manga, and most of its borderline porn anyway. This is not something people go in the backroom for, it's all over the place.

Kishison got a one-year prison sentence, suspended for three years, for his diabolical plot to "unnecessarily sexually stimulating, (which) damages the normal sexual sense of shame of ordinary people, or is against good sexual moral principles".

The best part? The law is based on a ruling involving DH Lawrence's Lady Chatterly's Lover. Will we see a Japanese Cultural Revolution over manga?
