Japanese Red Cross: Big Breasted Anime Girl Blood Drive Promotion is Not Sexual Harassment

The Japanese Red Cross Association has partnered with many anime series over the years to promote blood drive donations, and the recent one promo they ran with the manga creators of ‘Uzaki-Chan Wants to Hang Out” drew ire lately from various internet grifters.

The promotion features the busty main character looking smugly at you telling you donate blood. A few influencers online ran with it and implied that the Japanese Red Cross was glorifying sexual harassment by having an anime girl on a poster.

The Red Cross responded (via Otakomu) by publicly stating that is not the case and while they are aware of the observations, that was never their intention at all. The Japanese Red Cross also noted the promo is not a form of sexual harassment.

    This is sexual harassment: Touching or kissing a person without his or her consent or telling him or her that you want to do sexual things to him or her.

    This is NOT sexual harassment: Everything else.

    Bit late for this story. What’s not in the article is that the primary person accusing this of being sexual harassment also used the #metoo hashtag for it on Twitter. Additionally, a feminist lawyer, possibly working with the primary accuser, I can’t recall, tried to argue it was legally sexual harassment. She was then mocked and laughed at by a wide variety of mainstream Japanese news media.

    Regardless of Red Cross Japan’s stance, they still opted to move the poster indoors following the claims of harassment.
