Anime Kills Children

by on May 25th, 2009 at 1:24 am, under Text

A 10-year-old Washington state boy died Monday of injuries he suffered Saturday when he buried his head in a sandbox during a play date while mimicking a favorite cartoon character.

Codey, a fifth-grader, reportedly was playing among a group of children near his age late Saturday morning when the group came up with an idea inspired by the popular anime-style character “Naruto.” According to the official U.S. Naruto Web site, the character is a 13-year-old aspiring ninja who likes to play pranks more than he likes to train.

The mimicry involved Codey’s playmates burying him head-first in a one-foot-deep sandbox, Joshua Quantrille told ABC News’ Seattle affiliate KOMO-TV. Quantrille, 30, is Codey Porter’s half-brother and his three sons were among the boys playing in the sand box Saturday with Codey.

Quantrille said the other children initially thought Codey, buried from his head to the top of his chest, was joking when he started to thrash around. By the time they got help, the boy had already stopped breathing. Adults at the house tried unsuccessfully to administer CPR before emergency medical personnel arrived.

The boy was transported first to Providence Everett Medical Center and was later flown to Seattle, where he remained in critical condition at the children’s hospital until his death Monday.

Five children interviewed by investigators told the Swohomish County Sheriff’s Office that the burial idea came from the popular cartoon. Sheriff’s office detectives, who also spoke with the parents of the children, ruled Codey Porter’s death a “tragic accident.”

Both my parents were divorced, and had very different views of my obsession with Anime.

My mother, who is now passed away, was very supportive of my Anime addiction. I think most of this was due to the fact that she at one time was an art major in college. She was also somewhat of a geek herself, who did things like take me to see Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back at a very early age.

Meanwhile on the other end of the spectrum, my father was very against Anime. So much so that him and I actually got into some fist fights when he tried to throw away some of my art books and manga. Fortunately, I lived with my mother, and didn’t have to put up with his old ass.

I honestly believe kids today have it easier when it comes to parents understanding their obsession. Anime is much more relevant in todays society, and is recognized as a legitimate art form. Schools such as Savannah College Of Art And Design even have classes that focus on Anime and Manga styles. Also high schools have Anime clubs, Barnes and Noble has huge Manga sections, Anime is on TV regularly, and conventions like Animazement are around to educate parents about what Anime is all about. All in all, todays kids have it much easier than kids in the late 80’s and early 90’s (such as myself). They have several mediums at their disposal to help them prove their point, that Anime and Manga are good for the environment, the government, and puppies alike…

Wow, I’d expect younger parents to understand anime obsessions. My dad is 71 and he loves anime.

I am a parent now so I’m trying to get my little guy hooked on anime before he turns one XD He giggles whenever I have anything in Japanese on my computer. I don’t understand why everyone elses parents would not understand it. The first thing I ever watched was Totoro via my aunt’s house. One of my aunts lived in Japan for 5 years, so she sent us tons of anime related things including a few old notepads with Goku on them. My other aunt is the one who got me the Totoro movie and other cute Japanese things. My parents love anime and my dad was the one who attempted to get me hooked on it.
