Australia Bans Imports Of Hentai And Adult Anime Products From Japan

Australia Bans Imports Of Hentai And Adult Anime Products From Japan

Australian Customs have introduced a quiet ban on importing hentai and adult anime products from Japan.

Bounding into Comics says retailer J-List told customers earlier this month that 'Australia is killing off any chance of waifus entering the county because we've had to stop shipping there'.

In a blog post, the retailer said: "DHL Japan called us last week, informing us that Australian customs have started rejecting packages containing any adult product.

"They then advised us to stop sending adult products to the country. Following that, current Australian orders with adult items in them were returned to us this week.

"Adult items from J-List include onaholes, hentai manga, doujinshi, cast-off figures, JAV DVDs, and any product marked with a +18 symbol on the product's thumbnail, as seen on the right."

The move follows outcries from Australian politician Stirling Griff, who has been concerned that there are too many anime products that sexually depict characters who look like children.

Griff questioned the Classification Board about why some publications exist in Australia that show graphic scenes, however he was told that because they are animated and fictional, they are aren't flagged in the board's rating system.

However, whatever has happened between March and October, it's clear a ban has been introduced.

J-List included in their blog a quote from the Australian Border Force website which explains why some of the products are banned from coming to Australia.

In relation to trying to import something that could be related to illegal pornography, the statement says: "Publications, films, computer games and any other goods that describe, depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex... in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults are not allowed."

At the moment, the ban appears to be related to items that are specifically NSFW.
