Controversies

Japan controversy

Japan has become one of the series' most controversial characters because she is often considered a stereotype of Japan and Japanese culture. Creator Pasi Peure stated during an El TV Kadsre 24 interview, "I created Japan because she is supposed to represent anime more than the actual country." However, this only generated more controversy.

Ban

The series was banned in the Arab countries of Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia, as America is featured as gay, which is discussed several times. Homosexual acts are criminalized in these four aforementioned countries, which are predominantly Muslim.

The series is also banned in Xintao as the series is considered gay propaganda.
