My thoughts exactly - my only issue here is that I know somebody's going to throw Eiken
out there and I'm also bracing for the "Western bias" accusation. That's why I want this to be a clear and open discussion. Really, if it weren't for the Eiken
precedent, I'd give this an angel and not even bother to start a thread. Keep in mind that I
don't think this compares to Eiken
at all, but I'm sure there are some here who might think so.
Those demographic distinctions don't really exist in comic books, any more than they do in movies. There are plenty of R-Rated movies intended to appeal to both older teens and everybody else. Comic books are mostly the same way - titles in DC's Vertigo line usually contain graphic violence and sometimes graphic sex as well as swearing, and they're pretty much aimed at anyone old enough to buy them and mature enough to understand the subject matter. Body Bags
is like that. The fact that I don't watch Japanese cartoon animes or read Japanese comic book mangas means the joseph/seinar/schönbrun demographic distinction means nothing to me and I can't compare that to this.
