queens-blade-covers-up-2.jpg

Hentai warrioress anime Queen’s Blade is shaping up to be as much a battle between censors and fans as it is a battle between busty maidens.

In particular the mass naked lady event that is the Queen’s Blade OP and ED has seen much additional coverage…

Sengoku Basara: Two for the Price of One

sengoku-basara-anime-of-mystery.jpg

Sengoku jidai anime Sengoku Basara recently aired, and observers soon noticed some very strange differences between two of the broadcast versions.

Kadokawa Issues Haruhi Gag Order

haruhi-gag-order.jpg

Just when fans thought they had secured some reliable evidence of the existence of the Haruhi second season, Kadokawa has moved to scotch them.

Now we hear that lynchpin broadcaster Saitama TV is issuing a categorical refusal to comment on the series, after only days ago having confirmed with other broadcasters that the series would have 28 episodes.

Hentai anime Queen’s Blade looks only to have escaped the wrath of censors in part of its broadcasts; in the others, it has been subjected to censorship of the most vigorous and unalluring kind.
