We don’t have time today to do justice to this Nymphet controversy. Suffice to say that Seven Seas has been forced to postpone publication of NYMPHET, a popular Japanese comic about a grade schooler who has a crush on her teacher. And by crush, we mean she throws her panties at him and begs him to have sex with her. For more info, check out Journalista, Tintin and Manstream. While Seven Seas’s head Jason DeAngelis defends his right to publish NYMPHET in an apparently now-removed letter reproduced on Dirk’s blog, if you read the caption in the lower left hand corner above, you may get some idea of why publishing this book here may not be the best idea.
In Japan, young girls on the “cusp” of adolescence begging for grown up and explicit sexual acts may be fine and dandy and utterly hilarious but here in the good old US of A, it is frowned on. If Dale Earnhardt were still with us, he would frown on it, that’s for sure. Elvis too, at least in public. They would frown and then beg for good, old fashioned, squeaky clean tentacle rape.
