Support Kodomo no Jikan

About six days ago, the Kick­starter for the Kodomo no Jikan Eng­lish local­iza­tion suc­cess­ful­ly raised enough mon­ey to offi­cial­ly bring this man­ga series to the Eng­lish-speak­ing world for the first time ever, since Sev­en Seas’ failed attempt to bring it over to the US as Nymphet in 2007.

I’m famil­iar with the series, and hon­est­ly, beyond the sur­face it’s actu­al­ly a good read/watch. Per­son­al­ly, I think the con­tro­ver­sy is overblown, but rather than jump­ing into my usu­al rants, I’ll just point you to an arti­cle that I feel is pret­ty much right on point. If you feel like you’re an open-mind­ed indi­vid­ual and aren’t too sen­si­tive to “objec­tion­able sub­ject mat­ter”, I say pick it up when it’s released and give it a good ol’ col­lege try.

Books, no, plen­ty of sto­ries in gen­er­al tack­le con­tro­ver­sial top­ics and issues. It’s one thing to say no and not buy it, but if you’re active­ly against the exis­tence of pub­li­ca­tions con­tain­ing ideas and sub­ject mat­ter you find uncom­fort­able, then I hon­est­ly don’t know what to say. As a col­lege stu­dent, I’m no stranger to the pres­ence of emo­tion­al infan­cy among my own gen­er­a­tion, but of course, I nev­er real­ly know how to respond to it because any­thing peo­ple like me say seems to go nowhere.
