I have a feeling sales numbers of those are about to skyrocket.
Do schools really show a lot of animé, particularly in Florida or Wisconsin?
Tbf manga/anime don’t really belong in schools, more of a library thing.
Geez. Kind of tonedeaf book.
Ah yes…the tired old “Guns are not the problem, it’s those darned books (and videos, and games, and etc.)” trope.
Someone, please remind me why school shooting “incidents” are exponentially fewer in a gazillion other countries where children also have access to the very same media…Something about access to firearms, or something, something?
It’s annoying, but I guess I get it. This decision doesn’t annoy me nearly as much as banning something like Maus. But for the record, Assassination Classroom was an amazing anime and I highly recommend it to anybody that’s at all into anime.
The premise as it’s explained in Episode 1 will make absolutely no sense whatsoever and you’ll spend the entire first season having no idea what this craziness is all about, but it all makes perfect sense by the end of the second season.
“Ah shit, here we go again.”
Right wingers at it again. I wonder if they are equally targeting gun availability? Probably not.
>Jennifer Pippin, chair of the Indian River County chapter of Moms for Liberty, deemed the books inappropriate, stating, “We don’t want students to think it’s OK to kill their teachers.” They cited the recent history of school shootings in the U.S. as another related factor. A Florida-based organization, called Citizens Defending Freedom, also announced that it would take action against the manga for both its explicit sexual content and its alleged promotion of gun violence against teachers.
“Assassination Classroom revolves around a group of students that must figure out a way to take down their school teacher, who is actually an ultra-powerful octopus-like creature that has pledged to destroy Earth in one year. ”
I mean… I wouldn’t want it in my kid’s school either.
