    This really isn't anything new, and China isn't the first country to regulate foreign entertainment. France has a law that dictates that french music must be played on the radio at least once per hour.

    This isn't going to affect sales of Japanimation at all. We're talking about broadcast television. So from 5-8 PM there won't be anime on TV. Boohoohoo. How many channles in the US are playing anime between 5-8 PM? Maybe a random thing on AZN or a kids show on cartoon network. Whatever. There isn't a ban on watching it in your own home, and there isn't a ban on selling it.

    Still, if japan isnt selling as much as anime as it normally does, china is a big country, and i bet a percentage came from china. Theyll increase prices to make up for the void

    Sometimes, having simple answers to problems, is the best choice.

    But life goes on, whether China likes it or not.
    Also, people should be able to make their own decisions.
    BWAHAHAHAHAHA, not in China.

    Is anyone actually reading the news article? They're not 'banning' anything! They're only reserving Broadcast TV time between 5 and 8 PM for Chinese shows. Foreign cartoons can still be Broadcast, just not then. It doesn't say anything about restricting sales or keeping foreign media out of the country. It's a three hour block of time nightly, during which time you could just fire up the DVD player and watch foreign cartoons anyway, which is what people will probably do.

    This move isn't going to hurt anybody.
