More eroge sites banning foreign IPS



VisualArts have this toally cool sentence when  you access their site:




Going into erogmap now requires a confirmation


Moonstone has joined the ban crowd. That makes 3 companies.


So Minori updated their site with this:

minori official website.
This website cannot be browsed excluding Japan.

Some foreigners seem to be having an antipathy against EROGE.
Therefore, We prohibited the access from foreign countries, to defend our culture.
Sorry for you of the fan that lives in a foreign country.

Why minori blocking foreign accesses?

We are little perplexing now because we received a lot of response about this issue from foreign people.

Now we will tell you the short detail about the reason why blocking you to this website, because of we, all Japanese EROGE makers were facing at the problem, the crisis of “Freedom of speech”.

Currently, The bill that allows to limiting the content (It is censorship. Isn’t it?) to all EROGEs is being discussed in the Diet because intellectuals and politicians said “Japanese EROGE were being problem and troubled with the foreign country. Therefore we should make EROGE hidden away from foreign country, and also its content should be limited and censored”.

Okay, now we trusted the word what they said at once. So we blocked you to make stay away from the trouble.

…Do you like that?

If not, please tell your idea directly to Japanese government and politicians.
(For example, you can write the letter to the administration of Japan directly from here.)
(If you can comprehend Japanese…There is information of the politicians in Japan.)

Otherwise, you just can talk your idea about this issue at your blog or other media to inform the existance of this problem to the public. It would be very helpful for us.

If you do so, we might be able to recover the “Freedom of speech” and the barricade lying in between us would be taken away.

Please help us.

We hope this separation would be only for short moment.

Yuzu soft

And the famous Yuzusoft has taken Minori’s lead and banned foreign IPs.

About the eroge “ban”

For the lolicons!

(Picture has nothing to do with the topic. I just found it funny to put this)

Just a note to all of you out there who are raging over this issue.


No one said that this is going to be EOCS’s new regulation. It’s the shop that decided to ban it.

EVEN IF they ban those words, what are the chances of like 50% of the eroge industry going out of business. Especially when EOCS is formed by eroge companies too. Who the hell would destroy themselves. I was pretty hysterical at first (shouting at Zen and Micchi XD). But after a while, it all sounded stupid.

It’s probably impossible for this rule to be passed. Even if it IS passed, that’ll just make EOCS chops lose their credibility since quite a lot of companies would have to leave the EOCS.Maybe even set up their own organization. Heck that’ll be much better.

So in the end. Let’s just sit back and watch the show. =D
