Australia has been very strict on anime in recent years. From Sword Art Online to Goblin Slayer, many works have been removed or banned from distribution in Australia, often for serious reasons. This time, however, the exclusion How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord it wasn't justified.

On January 4, 2023, theAustralian Classification Board actually banned the distribution of the second season of the anime by Tezuka Productions across the country of home video output. Fans who have been following Season 1, which was regularly distributed in Australia at the time of its release, will continue to have free access to the platforms where Season 2 is present. the The restriction imposed by the CBA therefore only affects the DVD and Blu-ray versionsbut unlike in the past with other series, the reason for this decision was not given in any way.

Perhaps this can be found in the first season standings in Australia, where it fell in over fifteen material for the presence of "strong sexual themes". This is another title banned from the country where communities seek to make their voices heard, even through the involvement of political parties, as happened with The Center Alliance for the distribution ban on No Game No Life. And what do you think of this matter? As usual, let us know by leaving a comment below.
