This is a case that happened some time ago, we didn’t publish it at the time due to Hoss’ health, but here it is for the record and information about what happened.

They say that it is necessary to separate reality from fiction, but this illustrator did not know how to respect this rule. In February this year, a controversy broke out in Japan over an illustration of lolis that gave something to talk about. Look at the illustration below:

The illustration above shows two girls with a provocative expression as they lightly lift their skirts. The art was done by Sabaku, famous author of adult loli manga.

So yes, your job consists of drawing and making money with loli hentai manga, and well, the illustration above gave you a headache.

All this controversy arose because of the advertising campaign by the clothing brand H&M, which was shared in Australia due to the return to school. They decided to share a photo of two little elementary school girls posing for the camera with the tagline: ”Grab attention with back-to-school fashion from H&M.”

Did you notice how the photo from the advertising campaign above is the same as the Sabaku Chitai illustration? It turns out that the illustration that Sabaku made is from his series “Mayonaka no Yoruko-san”, and the character in question is Yoruko, he used this H&M campaign to create a poster for Mayonaka no Yoruko-san.

It’s not like he drew the two girls in the campaign itself, he took the composition of the poster itself and used it to create art for Yoruko, an already existing character, but in doing so he ended up generating the ire of many.

However, his intention was not well seen, as he used an image of real girls to draw a piece linked to an adult manga, this exploded on Twitter and many people, feeling offended, launched a campaign against Comic LO and against Sabaku.

Comic LO, a magazine that publishes adult loli manga and to which Sabaku Chitai publishes its manga, issued a statement acknowledging that there was controversy with the loli illustration in question, and stated that “Comic Lo’s content is completely fiction”.

Sabaku Chitai released a statement as well:

”Statement from the Comic Lo editorial team. My private words and actions are my own and the editorial team is not responsible for them. I beg you to understand. I apologize to anyone who was upset or offended by my behavior. Lastly, I would like to thank all my readers for their continued support.”

Another artist who was offended by this controversy was Nagiwa Kaede:

”I just spoke to the publisher and decided to stop collaborating with Comic Lo magazine in the future. I apologize to those who expected new content from me in this magazine. Personally, I cannot agree with the editor’s position on the matter in question, which has caused a divergence of ideals. I mean, I think the magazine as a whole should be more aware of the need to separate fact from fiction, and the response they gave wasn’t enough to prove that.”

Comments:

“Even among hentai artists there are ethics and common sense”

”This time it’s not about feminists, don’t get confused. It’s about not involving real-life issues in our loli hobbies.”

”Comic Lo’s position is hypocritical and I don’t think so. It’s like they don’t care when real kids are involved.”

”Even Kaede Nogiwa-sensei, whose style is completely extreme to look at, felt offended by this matter”

“It is often said that even among pigs there are social classes, and this is fully confirmed”

“It’s amazing that the Japanese considered the H&M controversy “exaggerated”, but when a lolicon artist used this theme for an illustration, everyone lost their minds”

”These are otakus who clearly know where to draw the lines, something that is rare these days. In the past, otakus had decency, but now it seems they take pride in ridiculing themselves on the internet and exposing their particular tastes.”

Sabaku Chitai’s account no longer exists on Twitter due to many complaints that were received.
