Retween R and H

So I ran across this story while reading articles on the Escapist earlier today.

I'm not certain of what to say. The gist of the report is that the man Christopher Handley was arrested for possession of child pornography. Only catch is that it wasn't what you would call full fledged kiddie porn, it was Lolita Hentai Manga. What more is that he was prosecuted for having a small portion of it, in comparison to his full hentai collection.

I just find it interesting, Japan is struggling with how to categorize Lolita hentai. If Japan is having trouble (the country that produces the stuff) than obviously America can't even comprehend how to handle it as anything other than flat porn. I'm not surprised he had Lolita manga being a hentai collector. Myself being a mainstream anime collector (non-hentai), know that it just impossible to avoid lolita, it's simply everywhere. So I can only imagine how bad it probably is on the hentai scene.

I'm not surprised by the trouble he got in though. If nothing else he was moving a form of pornography over international borders. Being a customs agent, I know that porn and international travel don't mix in any way, shape, or form.

ahhh, culture shock.
