Chinese Manga-Inspired Internet Police

From kei-clone of MAL news team:

The Chinese government has decided to use two police officers, one female and one male, drawn “manga-style” to patrol computer screens of Internet users to make sure they are abiding by strict censorship rules.

The man and woman cartoon crime-fighting duo will patrol the screens of Chinese Web surfers, sometimes on foot, sometimes on motorcycle, sometimes in a patrol car and sometimes — in true Chinese style — on bicycles.

The government appears to be using these images to remind users not to deviate from chinese internet use restrictions, and to encourage them to rat out potential violators.

Ray’s Take: Well, they already tried to use the thought police and banned Death Note-copycat manga. I’d be very scared to live in China (and Singapore, too) if they ever become cybernetically advanced like Ghost in the Shell. BTW, for the continuation of the Odex story see here.

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
