“B Gata H Kei” Staff Get Multiple Threat Letters

B Gata H Kei is one of the titles that’s part of the Spring 2010 anime lineup I wrote about a while ago.  I honestly didn’t really have any interest in following the series, but for the hell of it, downloaded one episode.  Then downloaded the next one when it came out.  And so on.  While it’s by no means a masterpiece, it still has its moments and remains entertaining and, erm, tittilating as well.  The story follows the, ahem, “exploits” of high school student Yamada, whose goal in life is to, ahem, “score” with 100 “sex buddies” (most of the fansub groups have chosen to use a somewhat ruder phrase).  For her first conquest, she sets her sights on poor hapless Takashi Kosuda, a shy and inept everyman.  Still, for such a salacious sounding topic, there is (in this humble blogger’s opinion) relatively little hanky-panky going on, especially when compared to another member in the Spring 2010 lineup — more on that later.  Instead the anime chooses to focus more on the romantic comedy aspect of things.

Still, it would seem that even the mere notion of such a plot line is too hot to handle for some.  The anime’s production committee recently posted a report to B Gata H Kei’s official website stating that they have received multiple threatening letters, asking for changes in the anime’s content and presentation, lest unspecified harmful things happen to the studio and/or writers.  The production committee has chosen to brazenly ignore these threats and have notified local authorities.

What I want to know is why these warriors of virtue have chosen to single out B Gata, when there is much more salacious material out there.  I’m not even talking hentai, I’m talking another series in the Spring 2010 lineup: Kiss x sis.  There’s much more naughtiness going on here than B Gata.  (Choco Banana, anyone?) In fact I’m surprised that this isn’t even listed as downright hentai.  There have been episodes of KxS that have made me blush and feel uncomfortable — and believe me, I’m not exactly the prudish sort.  (Of course, I can’t help but keep watching either…)

Of course, for all we know, maybe these defenders of morality have also contacted the Kiss x sis staff, who have chosen to remain silent and ignore these whiners as they should.
