YoukaiWatch-Censorship-4

The arrival of Youkai Watch to the USA has subjected the children’s anime to a wealth of truly preposterous censorship, with the exposed midriffs of bikini-clad girls and entire upper bodies of muscular men apparently being regarded as corrupting to young vulnerable minds.

The “heinous” censorship in question, with the original Japanese version above and the brutally censored US broadcast below where it belongs:

    Kids see this kinda stuff at the beach all the time. So I fail to see the need for the censor.

    Part of it is the censors being prudes, some of it is them playing it safe and trying to change anything that has even the SLIGHTEST chance of drawing parental complaints...

    But most of it is apparently greed. Turns out that the censors get paid more depending on how much work they do, so they go out of their way to change as much as possible in order to get extra money.

    (See One Piece, and the really strange edits like changing people's shirts, removing shadows, etc.)

    I'm sure this is one of these.

    Unless they are rolling on the floor in short shorts putting each other in a choke hold. That is manly, but then again that type of display is usually pay-per-view.

    Took me a while to realize that the cook replaced the macho men. And that cook looks way more terrifying - the kind of stuff that'd probably give kids nightmares.

    Good job. Not.

    Political correctness . .our way to human oblivion . . I guess after we're extinct some other species evolve and take over as the new predominant species and will one day have great debate on how F.U.B.A.R ( fucked up beyond all reason ) political correctness was for us until we fucked ourselves out of extinction .

    Because of WhitePrivilege™ and RapeCulture™ we have to make sure that the Harassment of Women™ by CisHetWhiteMen™ is not perpetuated by the Oversexualization™ of womyn™ in the media. Especially without a TriggerWarning™.

    Seeing WomenAsObjects™ can be very Triggering™ to PeopleOfColor™ due to the lack of diversity™, no RacialDiversity™ was in the nekomimi girls scene and no women are in the weight lifter's scene making women and girls into victims by displaying them as weak. Not only that, it makes womyn feel UnsafeInPublic™ (because reasons). Also, the FatShaming™ displayed in these scenes are OffensiveToOverweightPeople™ and show an UnrealisticBodyImage™ in general. The sheer amount of Microagressions™ is shameful and the show should be banned based on its Sexist™ Misogynistic™ tropes™.

    basically, this is Problematic™

    Not trying to be a troll
    But always wondered how you type that "Small TM" that is used for copyright (and I your case effective humor)

    What keys do you hit to type said "Small TM"?

    Thanks!

    There is a letter to a dean of students or some other higher up of a college that reads almost exactly like that. Scary.

    alt+2 is ™
    alt+R is ®
    alt+G is ©

    Just remember (rarely) some site's blog sections freak out with some special characters, those 3 may not all work but fun as hell when they do. alt and alt+shift give you a lot of fun characters when mixed with other keys.

    Consider how the impact was that Pam Anderson and Schwarzenegger had on American education. Then it becomes clear.

    NoA has been terrible lately with the censoring. Look at everything they've been doing to Xenoblade Chronicles X.

    I fear for the new Fire Emblem.

    Makes no sense considering the cartoons we have here now have sexual refrences and bikinis all the time, must be a publisher thing, stupid to blame the "U.S." for what one company does.

    They want to cover up women, to make them wear the burqua, and want to take away anything that might act as a masculine rolemodel to boys. I fear this is what happens if you censor based on feminist ideals.

    Looks like the Censorship Squad is running outta ideas! Oh my... Here's a list to level up the madness
    The CSS need to censor:
    -Wet T-Shirts
    -Lolis completely from head to feet
    -Teared parts of clothes
    -The words Sex,Sexy,Sexual,and SEX
    -Feet. i'd figure since it is now a common fetishe. The viewer may fap just about seeing someone take off it's shoe.
    -Water and fluids. No wetness no problem!

    SENSOR EVERYTHING!!!

    ------And so the Battle for Uncensoring began.
