*Yawn* Just another perfect example that if you don't stand for something you fall for anything.
That any of you can see anything right in child pornography astounds me.
Because that is what it is - artistic rendition, written word, or photo, it's still child porn.
Easy - If it's not child porn then what is it, and what is it used for?
It portrays sexual acts with children for the use of sexual gratification, child rape as the protagonist for the gratification...
What's that called? Child porn.
As to why this man can be jailed?
Because it's against the law.

Allowing children to be used for sexual gratification in any form, or condoning it in any way is the one greatest offense mankind can perpetuate against it's own species.

Hmm...my only response is..
show me the victim. for this to be a crime, there must be a victim.
Censorship is bad, m-kay. dont like his tastes in cartoons, then dont hang out with him, but this is like drawing a murder on a napkin...does that make him a murderer? they will always use "think of the children" to remove libertys of all. with this step, it will be anyone whom looks underage (considering manga/anime/hentai are typically not underage but quite often hundreds of years old in pixie type bodys and whatnot). Who decides what looks underage anyhow?
I look at society and basically anyone under 25 looks underage to me now..and I am not as old as some lawmakers whom view people up to 30 looking underage.
show me the victim or get out...no arguement on earth should ever be made against literally victimless crimes...this is thought police and if you think the law should start clamping down on peoples thoughts, then you are the one that needs to be clamped down on.
I say one more time...show me the victim
Obviously people who read manga depecting children having sex makes them more likely to be open to child abuse, kind of like how people who read manga depicting murder makes them more likely to be open to murder.

This man does not deserve imprisonment.
No he shouldn't be in prison, but neither would I want him to work in a primary school, and definitely not one a child from my family attended!
Why? I would say I (that since most people don't want to possess graphic child images, let alone get sexual gratification from looking at them) that although they are cartoons, there is a much higher chance (than normal) that this man is (in the wrong situation) open to child abuse.
