    I found the loli discussion very interesting (is that how you spell it? I’d rather not google it to find out).

    As I think I talked about with Dave in the podcast we did that disappeared in the the ether, the loli stuff really puts me off trying any manga or anime, and a abandonment of it would certainly make me more willing to try – and most likely a lot more western people – this expanding markets as much as it would contract it.

    To add to Dave’s point about Lord of the Flies – that book was designed to horrify rather than titillate, and dealt with violence and mob rule rather than sexuality. So I think to compare the two is like comparing apples to pears.

    Anyhow, just thought I’d stick my oar in.

    Cheers guys.
