That is, of course, lolicon and shotacon H-images, not works of a loli/shota genre which dont feature pornographic images(Ie: Kodomo No Jikan). Under the act, a person found in possession of non-photographic depictions of the sexual abuse of persons who are (or appear to be) under the age of 18 years may face a penalty of u[p to 3 years imprisonment and registration of the sex offenders list.

In the U.S. it isn't YET, hard to say if it will become illegal or not. If you go to Wikipedia you will see it is apparently illegal in a few countries. Several countries have tried to make lolicon that shows children naked or having sex illegal as a type of child pornography, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, and Ireland are some of the few to have done so.

Is Hentai and Lolicon legal in the US yes or no?
Hentai is just animated pornography, of course it's legal. The supreme court ruled in favor of Lolicon (alternately known as rorikon) pornography being legal but during this countries dark age (i.e when we had an all republican government, 2003 to be specific) , a republican house a republican senate and Bush 2 passed a Fascist Un-American law of questionable legality, called the PROTECT act in blatant defiance of the supreme court, that while not making animated child pornography explicitly illegal made it into a grey area. Also, studies have shown that the ready availability animated pornography has caused a DECREASE in crimes against real children. Put that in your paper. Also Akira was not the first anime released in America. not even close. I believe the real first was astro-boy. One more thing: please don't bash feminists. One of the greatest Lolicon Manga of all time, Kodomo no Jikan, was written by a women and passionate feminist. Real feminists don't bash Lolicon, because in reality (a place conservatives loathe to go) it helps women and young girls. Please remember to vote Democrat next election to stop encroaching Fascism and Censorship in America.
