29th of May at Pasela Ginza in Ginza, Tokyo, several bishoujo-game seiyuu held an event called 「Onee-sama-tachi to Issho ♪」 to protest the new amendments to child pornography laws. [source: biz-journal.jp/] The new child pornography laws will arrest people who are in ‘possession’ of any child pornographic materials, be it 2D or 3D, throw them in jail for 1 year, and fine for 1 million yen (US$10,437~). Needless to say, it will completely destroy the eroge, as well as manga & anime industry if these laws pass. That is why, countless fans have gathered in Ginza along with numerous industry representatives. [See article on animenewsnetwork.com]
At the event there was:
まきいづみ (Maki Izumi) voice of Komari from Little Busters and Chihiro from Ef.
野宮香央里 (Amane from Flyable Hearts)
藤邑鈴香 (Sharuru DC3 x-rated version)
And four other newer seiyuu: 田中理々, 八ツ橋きなこ, 早瀬ゃょぃ, しまむらこんぶ.
There’s an interview with Maki Izumi (Komari) on biz-journal which I won’t translate but she says that all of the seiyuu (on-stage) do not object to voicing the sexually-depicted characters in eroge. And also that these games have impacted people in a very important and precious way, by way of the user relating to the characters and their plights. [source: biz-journal.jp/]
