This is one of those stories that makes us happy, not because we want to see RapeLay, the controversial game that was "discovered" on Amazon.com, taken off store shelves, but because it proves a point.
I always hear about how messed up Japan is because they play games depicting rape, so on and so forth. Well, that's not the case here because Canned Dogs reports that mainstream Japan has caught word of this game, and begun doing news reports on it. And this news has made a lot of non-otaku people mad. In response to this, Illusion has removed Rapelay from their website, and is now out of production.
This is probably due to all the complaints filed against this game over in America, which has bled over to Japan thanks to the internet, whatever that is. So next time you see something weird from Japan, don’t blame them for being so messed up, blame the otaku! It is us who sully Japan’s great name! Shame on us!
But never change.
