Russian lawmaker wants to regulate anime, claiming it encourages perversion | Video

(Updated: )

A Russian legislator is calling for anime to be more heavily regulated and in some cases banned outright. He claims it encourages "sexual deviation and suicide in children". It comes ahead of the release of a major Russian anime film that tells the story of Russian warriors fighting to save the world. And as Dan Ashby reports, anime fans in Russia now have their own battle too.
