Takuya Kimura is a famous person. Takuya Kimura is also the star of a video game series called Judgment (or Judge Eyes), made exclusively for consoles.

As it turns out, that exclusivity might end the series after only two entries, so why might his talent agency be prohibiting putting the game series on Steam?

The line between protection and overprotection is slim...in Virtual Legality.
