No IPhone Clothes Ripping For You!

In February, Apple's App Store declared war on titillation — for the sake of women and children! That war rages on.

Mosatsu is a series of popular photobooks published by Kodansha, one of Japan's largest publisher. It features famous female celebs like Megumi Ohori in posed photos with "tears" that show what underwear they are wearing.

An iPhone version, dubbed Rip! Mosatsu, was released last December for ¥350. Here is the game in action.

It was approved for sale in December, but the app was yanked from the store this past February. Apple honcho Steve Jobs hates porn — this, however, is not porn.

Kodansha is not happy. It did not receive any sort of concrete reason why the game was removed. Instead it was told "The standards have changed". What exactly those standards are is not clear.

"It's strange that a title that already received approval has been deleted," said a Kodansha spokesperson. Strange, indeed.

    Closed platform? nah can't be.

    It may take further research, but I have a feeling this all links back to the fact Steve Jobs is an asshole.

    well maybe you don't have to show these pictures..for the sake of female readers..?

    If the internet was invented primarily for news and porn distribution, and the iPhone/iPad are doing so well without "Porn apps" it's scary to think what the sales figures would be like with said apps.

      Some sort of iPhone/Android hybrid?

      Sounds like the sort of thing man was not meant to meddle in.

    Why is this on Kotaku, I mean, other than the fact that Kotaku knows its demographics.

      Because Kotaku thinks the iphone is a gaming device and thus reports on everything and anything relating to it, even when games aren't mentioned.

    Bashcraft, wry must you insist on continuously posting unrelated weaboo stories? :/

      This is what I was referring to previously.

    I love the imagination part of the video

    To those of you who says it is not gaming related, read the article again. This was a game that got banned from the app store, how is that not gaming related?

    maybe they should be making stuff for android, and not icrap
