BPO at it Again!

The censorship loving Broadcasting Ethics and Program Improvement (Both “Ethics” and “Improvement” being used loosely I see) decided to file a series of new complaints that Anime News Network believes might be targeting Magical Girl Site. The complaints include:

…assault against junior high school students and sexual violence…

…includes a scene that encourages bullying.

Of course, they felt the content was encouraging acts of real violence and it made them uncomfortable.
