Mitsudo Moe Massacred by Censors

mitsudo-moe-censorship-1.jpg

Even innocent loli nipple loving anime Mitsudo Moe has fallen foul of the censors, for reasons even more mysterious than usual.

The first bout of censorship involves the usual bathing scene massacre (not that the bathing scene actually shows anything) and a rather more unusual spot of artistic censorship – as usual only premium or anime-friendly Tokyo stations can count on getting the uncensored broadcast:

Technically Nipples are still present however.

Rather more ominously, one broadcast version has even censored the audio – a scene containing the line “このメス豚!” (“You filthy sow!”) has been bleeped (or dubbed over with oinking) out in the more heavily censored versions.

TV stations can usually be counted on to censor crude references to genitals, but this is probably the first time calling someone a female pig has been deemed obscene, and in the early hours of the morning no less.

With the phrase cropping up in other anime entirely unmolested, just why it was deemed unacceptable is a mystery – some speculate it was because it was uttered by an elementary schooler.

Whatever the cause, for once DVD marketing is probably not behind this creative interference.

    I didn't even notice that those censors were unnatural. I thought it was really part of the show and I thought those Nipples censors were pretty funny. I chuckled.

    too much censor is bad, but
    bare nude is not very good

    it's more stimulating with the censor because they leave some room for imagination

    hahaha i learn that from kariage-kun

    It's sad to think that a ton of childrens TV anime movies from the '70s and '80s would end up censored for nudity in the present day. Even though the internet makes attempts at banning skin from people's eyes pretty much redundant, and younger kids don't care anyway.

    It's impossible to be sympathetic towards an industry that has decided that schoolchildren bathing should be shoehorned into as many shows as possible though. Or the fans that consume it. The TV stations saw through this ages ago, and the sooner anime gets back to catering to more than just the fapping paedo audience the better.

    By the time I was watching the episode, I was wondering what the hell was happening in the bath scene when suddenly squirts of water flew out. They ****ing censored her hands :/

    They do it because some one may buy the DVD version after watching it on TV and less worry about some powerful moral faggots bitch about it afterward.

    As long as the storyline and the humour doesn't break, it's okay to be censored, for the sake of our morale :D.. LOL

    If they use Spaghetti Cat (I weep for you...) as the censor, I would laugh then feel depressed.

    So they "steamed out" breasts that aren't even there. Y'know, I wouldn't have considered the scene dirty but they had to point it out. Contrary to popular belief OUR MINDS DON'T LIVE IN THE GUTTER!!!

    My philosophy on censorship is:
    If you don't want people to see it, don't draw it in the first place! All censorship does is tell the viewer that there IS something to see, but we believe you don't have the right to see it!
    At the very least, the censorship should be left to the creator to deal with. You should NEVER let someone who has no understanding of the material loose on it to butcher it to pieces!!

    Actually I've heard elementary schoolers uttered stuff that was much worse than this.

    The nipple censoring is a social commentary on the laws deming drawn artwork of underage characters as child pornography.

    Yea same here, the weird thing is I hardly noticed the HSOTD censors as well. :/
    I feel like such an air-head.
    Though in a way it's a good thing, since subtle censors don't take away from the fun that way.

    Still, the fact that they keep putting censors up unnecessarily is starting to get on my nerves.

    Sometimes in the not so far future they might invent something to censor real live. Fog in public baths, black bars over tight shirts, beams of light on short skirts...

    All to save the souls of the poor children, of course.

    But I'd just download the rips, thank you very much.

    They even cloned Nipples. There are probably enough Nipples for everyone. ^_^

    @Indofag

    Well said...

    All the censoring and sh*t are just making everyone curious to see what's under the bloody steam/sunlight/bubbles/bats/fog/mist/shadow/some guy's arm/floating gif image/chibi smiling censor person/chicks/ducklings/unknown hovering specks of light...

    That's why business & pleasure go hand in hand when it comes to anime merchandising...

    It's been going on since 2000 and became more recognized as the years built up as a valuable marketing strategy~

    It's money before morals, after all when it comes to entertainment and such...And I wouldn't have it any other way~
