Watch out, Manga!

The creator of Princess Jellyfish stopped publishing her new manga Himozairu because some men on the Internet and other male critics said it was “demeaning.”  I can respect her decision to reexamine the work; however, I think being bullied into changing your art because people disagree loudly isn’t good for anyone.  Please sign the petition below to let Akiko Higashimura know you support her and her work.

Please sign the pledge for her to continue the project if you feel her stopping is ridiculous.
