Ero Game Website Blocks Non-Japan Viewers To "Defend Culture"

Minori, developer of adult PC titles like Bittersweet Fools and Angel Type, is digging in to protect itself from an onslaught of viewers outside Japan.

Those trying to access the Minori site outside Japan will be greeted with the following message:

This website cannot be browsed excluding Japan.

Some foreigners seem to be having an antipathy against EROGE. Therefore, We prohibited the access from foreign countries, to defend our culture. Sorry for you of the fan that lives in a foreign country.

Accessing the site from Japan poses no problems.

These recent defensive measures from erotic game makers come in the wake of the Rapelay controversy and subsequent rape game banning. Other measures include changing the titles of upcoming releases.

    Yes, rape of women/girls/underage girls is totally a part of culture that should be defended with peoples very lives.


    @ Shoitaan not all Eroge games are about rape, lolis or other misconceptions. There are quite a few good and popular eroge games like Crescendo, Fate Stay/Night and Utawarerumono. This eroge games do contain Adult material but also have intriguing plots, characters etc that make them popular.

    Yes these games should all be banned. By playing these games you are actually physically raping real women/girls/underage girls.

    While we're at it let's ban every FPS as well seeing as they allow you to murder people.

    This whole issue is a silly beat-up and society would do better by trying to reduce the real rape of real people.

      Basically this.

      The more time a rapist spends playing these games, the less time they're contemplating an actual assault.

      And for consistency's sake, they ought to ban rape scenes in films, if such imagery is so inspiring to these people. Then comes policing books, then thought-crime.

        "The more time a rapist spends playing these games, the less time they’re contemplating an actual assault."


        The more they play this, the more they convince themselves that it'll be that easy in real life. If someone is deranged enough to commit a violent (or otherwise) rape then no video game will curb that lust

        Raping a person in real life is as simple as clicking a button. Trivialising rape a bit much?

        If someone is deranged enough to commit a violent (or otherwise) rape then a video game will not make any difference. In their mind they've already decided they will commit rape.

        Shouldn't we be trying to find a way of rehabilitating the deranged someone(s)? Or are they so messed up we should give up on rehabilitate them?

    The Japanese have always been extremely xenophobic/racist. They seem to hate anything non-Japanese.

    One portion of a group (in this case, foreigners) causes trouble, so the whole group is therefore punished. Japan's culture of group discrimination at its finest.
