If anime and manga are banned worldwide by the United Nations, who is benefited from this, and what would happen to the fans of anime? Answer #1: The people behind the ban would be the one’s benefiting from it. The only reason to outright BAN something is because you’re threatened by it’s success.
Or you’re trying to “protect” something. Have you heard of the company: Uber? They’ve been banned in tons of cities and countries worldwide for the same reason.
Because “they know” Uber is a threat to modern-day Taxi businesses (Uber is better). In the same way, if a group of people decided to ban anime and manga worldwide, that would imply anime has the potential to “hurt” or “challenge” similar companies in the entertainment industry. Like Marvel for example. This could actually happen in future when anime starts to make a dent in the world.
To the point where anime is considered as “normal” as a smartphone or a Hollywood movie. Answer #2: Anime fans would go nuts or at least make a stand against it. Just because something is “banned” doesn’t mean the audience who wants it will disappear or go away. In fact having it “banned” will have the opposite effect: more fans will demand it. Just take a look at piracy.
In a way it’s almost no different to something that’s banned.
It’s illegal, and it comes with consequences. And yet that hasn’t stopped Kiss Anime or similar sites from profiting from it.
Or “fighting the law”. Just like with piracy, there’s always a way around a “ban” anyway.
Even if it’s a little indirect in how you do it. In the end: if anime was banned, it’ll just end up becoming MORE successful while rising in popularity. And when the dust clears we’d all be like….. They tried “banning” Hip Hop music when it first began.
Now it’s the biggest genre of music on the planet. Anime would take a similar route if it got serious enough.
And we’d all end up winning as fans (and contributors) to anime culture. But maybe’s that’s me being optimistic. Thanks for asking Don Calderon
