JK businesses cannot be located within metres of schools, nurseries, hospitals or other public buildings, and no one under 18 can distribute fliers for the businesses, or recruit other teenagers. Superintendent Hiroyuki Nakada, deputy manager of the Juvenile Support Division, says the police are confident that their strategy is working.
Nakada says that thanks to the new, tight regulations, just three shops were prosecuted and fined last year. Critics argue that business owners have found new ways to circumvent the law. The problem may now simply be less visible; more owners operate online, away from physical shops and cafes, and some may have simply opened new businesses under different guises.
The shop opens a Twitter account and they follow girls using it. Fujiwara believes that the government trying to crack down on JK business may look good on the surface, but does nothing to ban other types exploitation. She also points out that more attention should be paid to buyers and to trying to change the mindset of a society that accepts commodifying children. From this sprang the practice of enjo kosai , or compensated dating, in which middle-aged men offered financial support to teenage girls in return for sexual relationships.
This practice then became diversified and commodified into what is now know as JK business. It is necessary to educate and regulate adults or offenders who buy girls a lot more than educating children. Although the police might count it a victory that some JK businesses no longer employ those under 18, Nito argues that it does not touch the root of the problem. Even if the girls offering JK services are of legal age, it contributes to a dangerous and pervasive culture of the sexualisation of minors.
After all, they are pretending to be underage schoolgirls, feeding an appetite for the illicit buying of pornography and making real schoolgirls more vulnerable.

All of this did not bode well for a serious discussion, and frankly gives the volume a slight tinge of the being perved at. Despite this, the initial question was indeed answered. In the era of the mobile phone and before that the pager they rebelled. With my interest piqued, I also found the desire for conformity interesting - so a rebel, that conforms to the norm of being a rebel Overall not an all bad book then, but a little of the kawaii side for me, and needed more depth and maybe even some academic rigour.
Pretty entertaining book, though it is quiet short and tells a lot of its story through pictures. If you're looking for an in-depth description of elements of Japanese popular culture, this isn't it. But it touches on quite a few interesting elements, and it's an entertaining, light read.
I LOVE this book! Sam Brattle. An interesting book that is a must for all fans of Japanese culture. Holly Letson. Once you get past the boring first chapter of this book, which discusses uniforms, this book is really good. I'd give it 4. I won this book from Tuttle here on Goodreads from First Reads. I was excited to receive it, and was not let down. I consider myself pretty read-up and in-the-know about anime and manga.
But, still, I enjoyed reading that section of the book, and learning the stories behind what we read and watch. I also enjoyed reading the sections on music and gaming as well. I have not played many dating sim games, either, since I usually prefer fighting games, RPGs, or puzzle games.
Maybe, I will, later on. Overall, I feel like the authors did a great job on this book. There are few mistakes, such as "prove" spelled as "proove" and a few double or triple spacings between words, but it was very enjoyable. Dharma Agastia. A short book that reads more like an extended Kotaku article exploring the influence of the schoolgirl in Japanese pop culture. It jumps from topic to topic, covering wide ground, but with very little depth.
Good for light reading and it is indeed a fun exploration into Japanese schoolgirl history, but it doesn't dive in too deep into more perplexing social issues surrounding the image of the schoolgirl in contemporary Japanese society.
