Russia bans isekai anime, yes you heard it right, isekai (Japanese for “otherworld”) animes like KonoSuba and The Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, among others, have recently been banned on some Russian websites.

The Russian court ruled that the isekai titles promote reincarnation beliefs and demonstrate that after death, there can be a more complete and fascinating existence, free from parental influence.

The Russian district court in Saint Petersburg banned five anime titles on Monday, April 26th, citing the federal Russian law for the protection of children from harmful material. The banned animes are –

  1. KonoSuba
  2. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime
  3. Zombie Land Saga
  4. Nekopara
  5. Princess Lover!

The statement was made on the official Telegram channel of the court. The decision to prohibit these animes was taken after experts determined that the shows promote reincarnation beliefs. According to the court, some of the listed titles even featured pornographic material but exact anime names were not given.
