The artist and author Nomio Gyuunyuu (Author of Joshi Shougakusei Hajime Mashita P!) commented on Twitter's recent difficulties publishing manga about "lolis". It should be noted that "Loli" is the short form of "Lolita Complex" and in Japan this subgenre refers to works that include pre-puberty girls in everyday situations or even in sexualized forms.

Gyuunyuus Tweet translated: "It might be rules, but when I had a few uranium drinks a few days ago, we talked about how a manga about Lolis can no longer be published in a "magazine". No matter how well it sells, they will never adapt it to anime, and if it is not adapted, publishers will see no reason to resell it. If you go further, it might even be impossible to release anything from the Loli subgenre. This subgenre is losing its market mainly in the west, and the industry in Japan is naturally beginning to adopt the ideologies of these places. So that can be abandoned""

Gyuunyuu also commented on the recent cases where the sales platform Amazon He has removed numerous light novels from his catalog in the United States. In this context he commented: "Four years ago my work "Joshi Shougakusei Hajime Mashita P!" It was removed from Amazon in Japan and could no longer be published in any manga app. I think that this type of case on this platform will continue to grow regardless of the country as it imposes its own ideology of what you think is right.""

Gyuunyuu is currently publishing the manga Joshi Shougakusei Hajime Mashita on the website Nico Nico. The editorial Hakusensha published an edited version of this manga in the magazine Young animal between 2014 and 2019 under the title Joshi Shougakusei Hajime Mashita P! The manga tells the story of a 30-year-old virgin who suddenly becomes a primary school student.
