Of course it can! Do you know how many mosques are there in Japan now? Nearly hundred! You just don't see them because they are not shaped like a mosque. And where does the funding to run these mosques come from? What do they preach? Anyone monitoring?
"Masjid building rush was started after 1990, when foreign Muslims (most of whom came to Japan in 80s) became economically established & settled their roots in the Japan's soil. Many of these foreign Muslims have married to Japanese converted Muslims. Alhamdolillah, the Japanese Muslim community is increasing steadily in Japan. Masjids are the centers of these small communities, scattered throughout Japan. These Masjids are not only the place of prayers for these Muslims, but also a place of study, especially for converted Muslims & new generation. Most of the Masjids have facilities for women & children."

Being twisted in the head is not a crime, to act on it, it is. Western sex fantasies like adultery will kill you by getting stoned in other countries. Don't judge all the cultures same. Animation is celebrated in Japan as a form of expression and fantasy. There can not be a "limit" to that.
