The game will probably be rated M. It's not necessarily "pedo" (known as lolicon) hentai (anime porn) per se more than just ecchi. (soft core equivalent of hentai)
The childish appearance of the girls is a common theme in h-games. But considering the game's placed in a high school 'm sure the character's ages will be at or above the legal limit.
The game looks cheesy to us but sadly this is the style of this kinda thing in japan.
And the comment for the wii being a system marketed for "kids"?...that is the most dated and untrue statement the opposition has given since the era of the Game Cube. The wii was a system marketed for EVERYONE, not just the teenage to early twenties mainstream demographic that Micro Soft and Sony have roped in.
As for the censors, it is illegal to shown genitalia in japan both real or drawn.
The game looks more like a gimmick than anything..i kinda expected this sort of thing on wiiware as opposed to a full blown licensed title.
It kinda reminds me of the "Lapis" DS title that was supposed to teach girls how to make themselves "Feel good" by stimulating a cute little bunny creature via stylus.
this kind of thing surprises me considering it's nintendo, and the censors and stipulations that are placed on them by the ESRB.
I'm sure the media is over reacting to this game is going to be noticed by a few bloggers out there and criticized; although not to the extent manhunt 2 was.
The game as well as the company releasing it both seem rather low key and less likely to show up on over-protective parents' collective radar. Or even see a port to the west for that matter.
So the potential for Ninty catching static for this game is rather minimal in my view.
