It might be annoying that you can't buy your favorite manga because of one or two scenes but it's annoying for me because I am being asked to ignore the law and put my job at risk.
Good point. Oh, I should say I wasn't trying to imply it's the employees fault (sorry if it came off that way). Whenever that issue arose, I'd just put it back (some stores would ask my age while others wouldn't). XD I was more or less just making a remark that although there's good reasons behind it, it's still a nuisance for people, especially when it's all for none when the person goes to buy it online ultimately.
