A Tokyo-based nonprofit organization is publishing manga booklets Monday that aim to safeguard juveniles from what it calls the increasingly serious reality of teen sexual exploitation in Japan.

The brainchild of Lighthouse, a group known for its counseling service for victims of human trafficking, the manga, according to the NPO, offers an authentic insight into sex crimes targeting juveniles today.

"Sexual commodification of children is growing more and more serious," spokeswoman Aiki Segawa said. "There are a lot of cases where the kids could have been saved before it became too late if they had been more knowledgeable about what sort of danger lurks in their life."
