WOW...what a bunch of crap. It's a computer game!! I don't get how people can stick their heads in the sand over the violence of war or forget that more than half the planet is starving a slow death, yet get their panties in a bunch over a damn perv game.
If you don't approve, then make sure 'your' kids don't play it!! Simple, right? If 'your' morals find this abhorrent, then it's your right to pass that along to 'your' kids, leave mine to me please!!

First, the music industry is pretty much the same the world over. Crap is crap, just with different cultural packages. J-pop is just Japan's answer to what Disney has been doing in and to the U.S. all along. Japan is different in that from the womb they are taught to follow, not lead. This makes J-pop easier to prepare, package and market than anywhere else. There are a few (artists) who sneak in that have real talent, but they usually get lumped with the trash that runs rampant in the industry. Second, most, but not all pop music is for kids, sung by guess who...kids! This makes a sick kind of sense. I'd rather drive nails thru my ear drums than listen to most of it, and that's why I choose not to. (insert whitty line about making sense again...) There's good music coming in from all over, but you aren't going to find it listening to the radio or watching TV.
