JAST USA chimes in on EOCS controversy

June 4th, 2009, by zalas
Posted in Translation , Tagged: , , , ,

We have managed to reach Peter Payne, owner of J-List and the JAST USA family of eroge brands, for comments on the situation brewing in Japan. In short, he says that there will be no adverse effects on games published through JAST USA’s eroge brands from this development.

Specifically, we asked whether there would be any effect on their current titles and whether this will have an effect on future titles, since he had hinted that there would be some “dark titles” coming up in the lineup at last year’s Anime Expo. Here is what he had to say on the matter:

Just saw that. I think that we will be okay as we have no connection with Sof-Rin [abbreviation referring to the EOCS] and no obligation to follow their rules. It should be noted that we have avoided games that are heavy in this genre, and don’t have anything that is as shocking as the titles they were carrying. Of course we’ve never sold games like Rapelay, whether in English or in Japanese or whatever. The new games we’ll be announcing will be awesome, and will be quite far from the current controversy.

    At least one positive news in these bad times. Please continue bringing us such lovely games like Virgin Roster and send all censors where they belong: (_o_)

    “The new games we’ll be announcing will be awesome, and will be quite far from the current controversy.”

    Hopefully some of the stuff they will announce will actually be awesome. It would be really nice as well if they get Family Project out this summer.

    Peter need to keep in mind that the group, that have forced EOCS hands, is a western one. They could potentially sue his company for making those titles available. They might not have known about eroge, but know they do and they are _NOT_ happy about it.

    for now, zalas, I don’t suppose that you can write an article about the Japanese reaction to the western erogamers after this clear interference with “their” market?

    “Peter need to keep in mind that the group, that have forced EOCS hands, is a western one. They could potentially sue his company for making those titles available. They might not have known about eroge, but know they do and they are _NOT_ happy about it.”

    There is nothing that would stick in a lawsuit, J-List follows all the laws that apply to it. All a lawsuit would do would give tons of free publicity to a small barely known company. More importantly, J-List, in addition too their few and far between games that focus on rape, the majority do not and if they did want to take action they could say they would stop distribution of one or two of their games that are “darkest” and the public would after wards largely ignore them since the belief would be that they “fixed” the problem. However the public isn’t likely to care as much as it isn’t like MangaGamer or many games in Japan with titles like “Suck My Dick or Die” and Rapelay, something like “The Sakura Family” just doesn’t have the same effect.

    Whoops, met “The Sagara Family” family, not sure why I said Sakura.

    Probably not right now, since I haven’t seen much reactions outside of 2ch, and that’s not a very good gauge of the overall erogamer market. Furthermore, I’m not sure if encubed is the best place to put such an article, unless such reactions cause more changes outside of Japan. Perhaps Zepy could be convinced to follow up on his stream of articles on this subject?

    >>4
    Well, standard operating procedure for the Japanese company would probably be more to “terminate the relationship” rather than sue. Lawsuits are expensive and usually avoided if possible.

    Pisalam juz na paru forach na ten temat ale kto to shlcua ??? Pracownicy socjalni sa do przekladania papierkf3w i opiniowania w/g wlasnego widzimisię. To jednak powinna być zorganizowana i przeszkolona grupa ludzi, ktf3ra powinna być częstym gosciem , w dzielnicach tzw. trudnych, gdzie bieda, bezrobocie, alkoholizm. Bez znajomosci środowiska nigdy nie zdobeda rzetelnej wiedzy, ktorym osobom nalezy pomf3c. Pisalam,że delegowany osobisty opiekun rodziny, ktorej jest udzielana pomoc, powinien nauczyć jak rozpisywać w zeszycie przychf3d i rozchf3d bo to najprostszy sposob, na dokumentacje wydatkow. Taki opiekun rodziny musial by solidnie pracowac ucząc osoby rozplanowania wydatkf3w i rozsadnego gospodarowania dodatkiem socjalnym .W sytuacji, gdzie ewentualnie przyznany dodatek nie pokrywa rachunkow za media taka pomoc jest bezcelowa bo nie ma możliwosci, by stanowił minimalny budżet rodziny na przetrwanie. Ale kto to shlcua ..

    Seriously? How could I possibly say that? Well, there is an unbelievable chance today to put your business opportunity in front of countless targeted prospects.
    and it is because of the astonishing power of the internet.

    There is very little that is really complimentary and this
    is very true with internet hosting companies. You get in the door
    cheaply however what occurs later? Your bandwidth is
    too restricted; you come across problems and can’t get support.

    Your website drops. Exactly what is that worth? Absence
    of appropriate support, which is pricey, is one way they
    make up for the lower price at the start.

    So then exactly what’s the issue? The problem is that you like so many others brand-new to Web marketing, are merely failing to comprehend the significance
    of Search Engine Optimization. Sure there are millions of prospective brand-new clients or
    customers out there online. But at the very same time you have actually failed to appropriately take into
    account level of competitors you’re up versus.
    The more you can discover about each of the internet marketing gurus the easier it will be for you to
    choose who you wish to learn from. Invest a long time doing searches and checking out
    forums, especially if you have no idea who the masters are.
    You can discover easily enough in online forums who they are and if you don’t find
    anything you can constantly ask.
    You will have discovered that all big name and popular web sites, along
    with a lot of little time sites have banner advertisements
    showed on almost all of the pages. This is not since they have these companies they
    are advertising, or have any genuine connect to them all.

    It’s all about cash.
    You require to seek help if your response is yes.If not, do not squander your time or your thoughts informing
    yourself this is not for you. Instead, spend this time
    and these thoughts on doing what internet marketing other effective
    people are doing. Capture up with their momentum.

    Picture the bull as all of what the world offers you.
    Whether it be physically, mentally, or financially. In this article I
    want to discuss what you might be leaving on the table regarding web marketing and your online
    company.
    I am involved with marketing online and I also recently started my own vending business in Ottawa called “Something to chew on Beverage Service.” I was once where you
    might very well be right now in your very own life. All I
    can say is have a little faith in yourself.

    Then you must understand about online forums, if you’re looking to make online earnings from house.
    They are an excellent media for advertising items and are something that must be contributed to your sales toolbox if you are already offering a product.

    For example are you aware the just some 50 % of individuals who enter a keyword into their search engine exceed page one to page two?
    However of those that go beyond page one to page 2, only some 30 % of
    them make it to page 3. Then it gets even worse for pages beyond that since
    it’s just however a simple fraction of searchers who stay that make it even more on.

    Therein lies the magic of marketing. Marketing makes individuals want and desire to purchase since they produce
    a particular sort of mental image that once you have the perfume or the necklace or
    bag, you will certainly look more youthful and prettier.

    Possibly you have not been marketing that routinely and just doing it on and
    off during your complimentary time. After a few weeks, you
    start thinking that you’re not getting the traffic and
    the outcomes you desire.
    Talk Blend is a company that markets the concept of utilizing video
    to provide your message. What they truly are is a
    service business. They have actually done the screening and research study to establish a
    quality set of video items for use by their consumers.
    They also have a quality advertising and media staff to offer customized services.
    They have actually now beened around for a number of years and appear to be
    financially sound. Contributed to all of that their response time to their
    partners and consumers is great and fairly personable.

    No doubt its just a one liner to put a title for the article.
    However do spend a minimum of 25 % to 50 % of your time in creating a great effect title for the article.
    Yes its that long for you to believe your short article over and over again and come up
    with the finest you can think of. If you spend 1 hour (not that this is
    best) to compose an article internet marketing , then do spend a minimum of 30 to 15 minutes for the
    title.
    Red? Why Red? plus some ‘blu-tack’ for sticking the cards to prominent surfaces without triggering any damage.
    Bill-boards, post-boxes, the back of buses, toilet cubicle doors, lamp-posts etc,
    etc., the list might be limitless.
    So what does this mean for the market? Has completion lastly come and the entire
    industry has now been shot to you understand what as the traditional tattoo artist would
    state? Or is this just all excellent for business and
    we should simply pocket the cash and go to the bank and not fret about the creative value of the piece and even if
    the client should truly be getting a tattoo done or not?

    So, you’re a beginner to web marketing? Don’t stress over
    being so brand-new. In today’s world, you literally have all the
    details you require, ideal at your fingertips.
    What it boils down to is how you break down the details and what you do with
    it. Anybody can be successful online. All it takes is a little persistence and commitment.

    Whatever sort of party you may want to hold, you will certainly constantly need an expert catering service.
    You can have a family event, an office-related affair or even just a regular party such as college graduation, baptism or birthday.
    For all kinds of parties, you will certainly constantly need
    an appropriate catering service that will care for the foods.

    So then what’s the problem? The problem is that
    you such as so many others brand-new to Online marketing, are
    simply failing to comprehend the value of Search Engine Optimization. Sure there are countless prospective brand-new customers or customers out there online.
    But at the very same time you have actually failed to adequately take into consideration level of competitors you’re up against.

    One and ZNZ Big Cash, and ending up being an affiliate,
    I made $300.
    Whenever you blog for cash, the website owner pays you for advertising these people.
    This will certainly make their website or perhaps item
    understood. Furthermore, the sites web presence will likely be increased, more
    individuals can end up being conscious of their products and lastly, everything
    will be profitable in their side. This will make it a win-win situation for you, the tumblr, and the site or whatever it is which you have
    supporteded. The very best part of this is that you do not need to do
    a task that would handle an extreme amount of your time.
    A normal typist could finish a single job in around Thirty Minutes to one hour.

    Ask a lot of questions. Do not be confident with just one answer.
    The only way you can discover the truth is if you ask concerns internet marketing until
    you get to the bottom of things.
    Red? Why Red? plus some ‘blu-tack’ for sticking the cards to
    prominent surface areas without triggering any
    damage. Bill-boards, post-boxes, the back of buses, toilet cubicle doors,
    lamp-posts etc, etc., the list might be endless.
    The most interesting thought that pertains to my mind (the “numbers individual” mindset is starting), is this: at exactly what point in the time-line will I have to
    discover another planet and coincident population to
    market to in order to grow my already geometrically huge downline?
    I don’t think the 6 billion or so people currently available is going to suffice.
