They're probably going to edit it to take Taki's likeness and voice out, but no, they won't completely stop selling it. The Western release is likely going to be delayed in order to allow them to do this.
Depp's situation appears to be way, way more complicated than it first seemed, but the point still stands - we definitely let famous people slide for doing things normal people would be utterly destroyed for. The main difference seems to be that we tend to actually crucify people in the public eye for doing wrong rather than erasing them entirely. It's hard to say which system is more effective - it doesn't seem like either one actually discourages bad behavior.Btw, people are rightfully so calling the absurdity of Watsuki and him not being in jail but in the west we have a very similar problem: Cristiano Ronaldo and Robinho rapped women, with the first one even admiting it and both are free without any problem. The first one even still has his sponsors and all so yes, this same thing does happens here as well. Same for Jonnhy Deep still being on the movies after beating women and so on.
