The Japanese animes listed above was condemned by the Chinese authorities from any online sites or in prints all over China. If you have noticed on the list,some of the best anime series who have successfully won awards from other countries are included like Death Note,Attack on Titan,Parasyte, Tokyo Ghoul, and many more. And if you have watched all these animes, you might find yourself thinking why did they blacklisted such good shows? Take a second look of the animes listed above and you might see the answer to that question.


Noticed something familiar about these animes? Yes, almost 99% of it encourages juvenile delinquency, glorify violence, terrorist attacks, and include sexual content(High School of the Dead,High School DxD,etc).And the Chinese authorities was concerned of the possible negative outcomes it would give to the minors and children watching these animes. They do have a good reason of putting these animes on the blacklist but what a bummer? They even forced to pull out Attack on Titan from the numerous awards it was nominated for in a certain occasion.


Senior Ministry official Liu Qiang stated, “The list is the result of evaluations by investigators, reviews by the ministry and the opinions of experts. It aims to guide websites in the proper review and importation of comics and animations.” The websites who would violate the said blacklist will be fined or much worst,lose their business licenses. The 38 Japanese anime on the blacklist doesn’t end there, the list of new banned Japanese anime will be released soon for the public to know.


China has a history for banning anime from televisions and video games, so it’s kind a not surprising right? But for otakus who plans to visit the country, be prepared to “NEVER GET A GLIMPSE” of these blacklisted animes while enjoying your stay in China.
