Winner: Nymphet (Kodomo no Jikan) by Kaworu Watashiya
PUBLISHER: SEVEN SEAS
The series in question, originally titled Kodomo no Jikan in Japan, features an elementary-school girl fruitlessly attempting to seduce her adult teacher. Although the series contains no overt nudity or sexual content……it nonetheless trades heavily on lolicon (”Lolita complex”) innuendo and imagery for its humor, in such a way as to make controversy all but inevitable.

There are some things this Manstreamer won't stream on, okay? We'll bukkake breasts, butts, bitches....full grown ones that is. We ain't Roman Polanski. Which makes you think why Polanski didn't go to Japan in the first place, if he was hunting in the underage virgin bush.
Looks like there's plenty of it over there- or at least in the comics. Or is it just that little Japanese girls like ripe man meat? Maybe they mature faster? Cuz if some sweet but horny lil ' Japanese elementary student came up to yours truly asking him to ejaculate inside her I'd have to whup her little ass and call her mommy. THEN I'd #%&* the mommy.
So to cut a long story short, this pussy's just a little too fresh, if you know what I mean. Go write Seven Seas and tell em you want a REAL woman!
Now, what're the Olsen Twins up to?
Specifically, those who are speaking out against NYMPHET seem to be disturbed by the relationship between two characters in the story, namely an elementary school student and her adult teacher. Most people have not yet read NYMPHET, since we haven’t even published it yet, so I would like to clarify an important point: NYMPHET is a story about a mischievous young girl who tries to sexually entrap her teacher....The comedy arises out of this young girl saying and doing improper things (much like Crayon Shin-Chan, which is currently being aired on Cartoon Network) and seeing her teacher squirm with discomfort and shock while he struggles to keep his composure, at the same time trying not to make a fool of himself in front of the woman he loves....
...My personal stance on this title is, if it’s good enough for the Japanese, then it’s good enough for us.

The themes of Lolita complex manga written by and for men, on the other hand, express the both the fixation with, and resentment felt towards, young women, by another group of young men. Despite the inappropriateness of their old-fashioned attitudes, many young men have not accepted the possibility of a new role for women in Japanese society. These men who are confounded by their inability to relate to assertive and insubordinate contemporary young women, fantasise about these unattainable girls in their own boys' girls' manga. The little girl heroines of Lolicom manga reflect simultaneously an awareness of the increasing power and centrality of young women in society, and also a reactive desire to see these young women dissarmed, infantilised, and subordinate.
From a broad perspective, both the obsession with girls relieved through Lolicom manga, and the increasing interest amongst young men in (girls' own) girls' manga, reflect the growing tendency amongst young Japanese men to be fixated with the figure of the girl and to orientate themselves around girls' culture. The increasingly intense gaze with which young men examine girls and girls manga, is, in the words of Anne Allison, "both passive and aggressive". It is a gaze of both fear and desire, stimulated not least, by a sense of lost priviliges over women, which accumulated during the 1980s.
