The story of the porn star’s rise to fame in anime and his transformation from a shy teenager to a global icon has become an animated legend.
But the rise of gay porn stars like Tsubasa Takayama, and the popularity of porn videos like his own “Sugar” has brought attention to a wider problem in anime fandom.
According to the Entertainment Software Association, there were only 13,000 gay porn performers in Japan in 2012.
That number dropped to 4,700 in 2013, and is now at an all-time low of 3,400.
Now, the entertainment industry is scrambling to keep up.
The industry is attempting to bring the gay sex into mainstream anime.
In February, a group of prominent Japanese companies announced a plan to expand the anime genre to include a gay character.
But they did so by only showing gay characters in gay porn.
The companies behind the initiative said they wanted to avoid a backlash if gay porn became mainstream.
The initiative, dubbed the “Cherry Blossom Project,” aims to bring gay porn into mainstream culture through its “gay porn” campaign.
The plan was also criticized for being too vague, as the company is currently in the process of developing its own gay porn initiative.
It also didn’t specify which companies would be participating in the campaign.
In a press release announcing the project, the companies said they want to reach out to fans who are passionate about anime and to develop a “culture of tolerance.”
But they also stated that they would “use every opportunity” to make sure that fans in Japan can “feel safe to watch anime without fear of discrimination.”
“The goal is to give people the opportunity to experience the full breadth of the anime universe without fear or shame,” the statement reads.
“We’re asking people to support us by watching anime with our support and by supporting other companies who are working hard to bring their own gay-themed content into mainstream society.”
The campaign is not the first attempt to include gay characters into mainstream Japanese entertainment.
A popular manga series published in 2007 featured two gay characters, but that series was also dubbed into English, and was not censored.
In 2010, the anime studio Production I.
G released a series titled “The Boyfriend Project,” which was directed by the gay writer and animator Keiji Inafune.
The series is now available in English.
