Sekirei Massacred by Censors

We saw previously that Sekirei was developing strong credentials as an oppai anime; it seems although one broadcaster, Tokyo MX, broadcast it in all its glory as we saw, other stations took grave exception to this.

So much so that they forced some extraordinarily harsh changes upon the episode in question, number nine, which put the worst excesses of regional physics firmly in the shade, quite literally considering the sudden blinding beams of light and mysteriously intervening objects featured.

You can see a full comparison below, and rather interesting it is too. Plenty of detail and even instructive animations.

The offending stations are Chiba TV and TV Kanagawa, on the very borders of Tokyo. This actually only represents an incomplete picture of the changes, the others you can doubtless imagine.

In case you are wondering the anime airs around midnight on Tokyo MX, not by any means a ridiculously late airing.

Sources on these are various anonymous 2channers.

Alas, Sekirei seems no stranger to this sort of thing
