Oppai anime Sekirei has concluded with an episode centred on an oppai battle, the objective of which is apparently to denude the opponent of clothes, an ending much in keeping with the spirit of the title. However, the somewhat schizophrenic censorship of the anime continues; as we saw with the nipple special, at times it can be quite risqué, but equally we have seen that it is subject to massacre.
Unfortunately, this episode almost falls into the “massacred” category, though it still has gigantic unclothed breasts a plenty.
This is from Tokyo MX, the same station which broadcast the uncensored nipple episode. In fact, fans actually thought they may have broadcast it by mistake, but they confirmed it was aired as intended. This is all very mysterious.
The usual mechanism of mysterious foreground objects is used, along with simply not drawing the nipples. Expect sudden nocturnal bursts of blinding sunlight from lesser stations. The pleasures of regional physics are sure to return, though this is probably the best version.
What is most amusing is that oppai miko spends virtually the whole episode with one hand futilely attempting to keep her rebellious bosom under control, which becomes rapidly farcical, especially with all the dramatic standing around talking to each other which goes on. A serious character would have grabbed somone’s coat.
For a service action anime to receive such heavy censorship is a little disheartening, particularly considering this may well be a DVD marketing tactic.
To be continued? There is plenty of manga left.
