68% SAY ANIME SHOULD NOT BE RESTRAINED IN REGARDS TO EARTHQUAKE has a information regarding a interesting poll.

68.2% of the people surveyed in Tokyo's Kantō area in April say that anime programs should not exercise self-restraint in the aftermath of the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake disaster (Higashi Nihon Daishinsai).
After the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, many anime titles faced changes, edits, or preemptions due to disaster-related content. The Japanese call the tradition of exercising such self-restraint "jishuku." The affected anime included Precure All-Stars DX3 Mirai ni Todoke! Sekai o Tsunagu Niji-Iro no Hana, Oniichan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne—!!, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, the final episodes of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and most recently, Gyakkyō Burai Kaiji: Hakairoku-hen.
The full article has the breakdowns and is definitely worth a read.

  1. And this has to do with Robotech in what way, how? This post should really belong on your personal blog ( I don't see how this is related to Robotech in any way unless earthquakes and tsunamis are a plot-focus in the New Generation side-sequel or in Shadow Rising.
