I just came across the story and thought some of you might enjoy.
Anime girls + photography = probably not comming to the U.S.

I think this would be huge with the right group, and in Japan it might not look so out of place. We did have that Playboy game that was along the same lines, but anime kind of ends up in a special category.
But it did get me thinking about all of the stuff that doesn't make it here. We miss shows, games, movies, and music. Given how fast people are able to find just about anything what is it that draws all these lines in the sand?
I myself watch subbed anime and movies and have found a lot of great stuff. Then I look at the total crap that is available here everywhere you look. Jersey Shore is a great example, or how about the real Housewives? I don't think I have any need to interfere in other peoples shit, but it really makes no sense to me.
Sorry to go on, but I think we have missed lots of great stuff, look at what happened with the Dragon Quest games and Final Fantasy. Not that Instant Brain is on that level, but it will most likely be one of the countless games that will never hit our shores.
