He only gets one arm cut off. Checkmate, anon.
But yes joke aside you are a retard, MiA is much more about shotas overcoming challenges of all kind, all the while remaining a cute, optimistic and brave adorable boy, a physical embodiment of all the good traits of childhood, a thousand times more than any generic ass anime that don't do anything with their shota character or doesn't treat them like the kids they are.
If you really cared about shotas, you'd find the scene horrifying, yes, it's written as such, but also you'd be able to recognize all the adoration tsukushi has for shotas and childhood in general.
