Was anybody else surprised to see that the OFLC has given Haruhi volume 1 an MA15+ rating?

Not that it affects me personally, I was just a little surprised to see it with a big red label in the catalogue. Confused

I know there's a bit of fanservice here and there, but am I forgetting something? Did somebody take objection to Haruhi's - erm - "hands on" approach to Mikuru's outfits? Razz Admittedly I never found episode 00 (the home made movie one) that interesting, so maybe I missed something there. >_>

Sorta reminds me of Azumanga Daioh...

Wha? Holy crap. Like seriously...thats ridiculous. I woulda thought it was M tops.

But surely enough MA15+ Strong Sexual Themes.

Huh, that is quite odd, the anime doesn't strike me as being overly sexual.
.... I guess the censors know what they are doing but I do wonder.
At any rate you could always start an online petition and appeal the rating if you feel strongly enough about it.

Well Blue Hiker and myself are both over 15 so we really aren't bothered by its rating. Its more just the surprise that it received such a high classification when the themes in it aren't really that strong.

But I guess that could be debated as a matter of opinion.
This will probably generate some interesting discussion nevertheless.

It's like they draw the ratings out of a hat or something.. I mean they gave Azumanga Daioh vol1 MA15+ and then vol2 was G rating.. and the content is virtually the same. Who knows what the hell they're thinking when they slap on these ratings.

The problem is that different sets of people view titles, so you can have situations were the rating differ wildly for the same series. But geez, MA15+, what in christ is happening here? Same rating as the very bloody remake of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Think about that. It's absurd.

It's MA15+ for "Strong sexual themes"
I would say the rating is due to Haruhi's constant molestation of Asahina and total disregard for Kyon's presence during said molestation. Asahina is certainly not a willing participant.

With the recent media "blitz" on school's violence/assault + Mobile phones with camera's it's not really that unexpected.

From memory that was because of the "pool" episode and Kimura's perving on teenage/pre-teen schoolgirls.

Actually, if you felt strongly enough about it and actually wanted results, you'd pay the fee to get the OFLC to review their decision.

I think you're all forgetting about how:

Mikuru was essentially forced into being molested by the computer club president (unwillingly). They are all under age as well, as such, illegal, immoral, and well it can influence others, that's what the OFLC may think anyway.

Azumanga was rated MA due to Kimura Sensei.

I'm watching the show in broadcast order, but I'll have another look tonight at the DVD release. Still, the US version has a recommended rating of 13+.

Which was a crap decision. I've watched that DVD a few times and still can't get over the fact it was rated that high. Got a "12" in the UK by BBFC, recommended 13+ in the US. It's just mind boggling. The OFLC are just so out of step with the rest of the world and average Australians.

There's no point in having by having the decision appealed, you're just throwing your hard earned money away.

But its so tongue in cheek that only the sickest pervert would derive any sort of sexual pleasure from that.
Ah! Thats it the censorship office must be run by sexual deviants Wink

The sexual pleasure the viewer gains from it is irrelevant, Mikuru does get mollested against her will, and it is obviously traumatic to Mikuru.
thats it.... and that is enough to warrant a higher rating. I am sure there are girls out there that have been in a similar situation that did not find it so funny when it was happening to them.

**feel free to prove me wrong on this next bit, just an assumption on my part on how shows are rated**
Thing about ratings is they are not really done "as a whole"
An episode or movie is broken up into scenes and each scene is looked at essentially out of context. They are then rated according to it's 'worst' element's. Or at least thats how the system apears to work.
Which is why Azumanga Diaoh's rating does not fit.... and why Haruhi's feel's a little high (but this is an adult show, both in concept and content)

I would have thought Haruhi would get a M rating, but I can understand the MA 15+ even though it feels a tad high to me.

I watched this episode with the scene in question last night, and I still don't understand why it got an MA15+. This is Benny Hill stuff, not some horrifying sexual assault scene. It's nuts. There's no nudity, no violence, no bad language and it gets and MA15+ for a clearly staged and comic blackmail scene. I mean an "M" rating for sure for mature themes, but it's not an MA15+ title.

The Madboards' banner ad for Haruhi lists the show as having a PG rating. I guess that'll have to be changed...

I think madman should appeal the decision, it might actually effect sales to a degree.

It costs $3000+ to appeal. It also costs money to hire a lawyer to present the case. We will not be appealing the decision as this does not affect whether we can release this title or not. It's not banned. You just have to be 15 or have your parent buy it for you if you are under 15.

I don't think that the rating is too far off. Haruhi practically rapes Mikuru on certain occasions (exaggeration). Still, I would have give it an M rating instead, but it's not my decision.

To be honest I was surpised. I was in queue with it and my friend pointed out it was ma 15+, yeah I thought why? Then re-thought it does make sense like someone else mentioned (sorry im too lazy to look back and see who) it does have strong sexual references.
But vol 3 is only pg...not sure bout vol 4.

I've only jsut turned 15 (Anzac Day, Happy Birthday to Me!) but being pretty immature, the MA rating was worrying me a bit. But after reading this thread I've decided not to let that stop me Very Happy

I mean, this series looks great. It might be kind of embarrassing to actually buy it, though, considering I sure as hell don't LOOK 15. And how to tell my mother I'm watching an MA rated anime, considering she doesn't even LIKE anime that much.... Ah, well.

Like I said, I don't think anything'll stop me from watching Haruhi!

The box has a bellyband with the rating on it, so you can just take it of. Wink

edit: Hey does anyone else have a delete button on there post next to the edit and quote button?
It’s something I’ve only noticed on the SOS bord, and to my understanding only a mod or admin should be able to delete posts, right. Confused

The simple fact of the matter is it's the age of the characters that's brought about such a 'bold' rating. They are teenagers remember.

(Don't recall the specific ages; and hardly familiar with the Japanese schooling/grading system Wink )

It's not the (not that frequent) 'compromising situations' thats the major factor; but the age of the characters in them.

That's why 'Steel Angel Kurumi', practically the queen of all 'fanservice' titles, can get away with tonnes of 'naughtiness' with only an M 15+ rating; as the 'Angels' are certainly adult in age and appearance (but hardly in personality Laughing )

Certainly is an intriguing issue, and one that's been with Anime for some time. Remember 'Evangelion'; I swear that show gets seriously borderline MA sometimes Wink

Well maybe I was a bit hasty labeling Kurumi as 'queen' of fanservice, but come on, it'd certainly be in the 'royal family' Wink
(Yay, consistent metaphors Wink )

I heard of Najica, and I'd love to see Najica (for the storyline and characterisation, of course Wink Laughing ), but I probably never will; unless Madman considers bringing it over here Wink Wink Wink

P.S. Changed my mind; Ikki Tousen is officially the 'Queen' of Fanservice Wink

This is Najica…
This
This
And umm... this
That about sums it up; in fact my friend said he was intimidated by the extreme frequency of the fanservice. Razz

Ps: sorry for the off topic.

Totally love how this thread gradually morphed from a legitimate discussion of the intricacies of the rating system to a 'who's got the perviest pic' contest Laughing

Well the old Dragonball Z releases were rated M. The new versions are the same content and are classified PG (well most of them). There is no explanation for that.

Well, to get nit-picky, the old releases had a little more visual content on the top and bottom. Razz

(Of course, that is an extremely nit-picky point, as that really doesn't make too much difference. Especially from the point of view of rating classification of the content. >_>)

The enforcement of the ratings guidelines shifts slightly over time; they're based on "community standards", and the original classification of DBZ was quite some few years ago.

It's not as amusing as what happened to ET, but still.

What happened to ET?
