Fight! Iczer-One Censored: “They Don’t Even Care Anymore!”

Japan’s known tendency to censor “offensive nudity” in anime has elevated to a whole new level with the re-airing of retro sci-fi OVA “Fight! Iczer-One“, turning down the usual implementation of conveniently bright lights and bothersome steam for hugely obstructive black boxes.

Originally released in 1985, Fight! Iczer-One was rebroadcast on TV for its 30th anniversary, which has essentially been ruined for most fans by an extremely lazy (or ultra-draconian) attempt at censorship:

The more “colorful” critics have questioned the point of even airing such a preposterously censored series considering how badly the blackouts take away from the immersion…

    It's so sad what's happened to Japan over the last 30 years. Nobody used to care about nudity in media at all until the Western world and the UN kept haranguing them about it. TV Anime of this vintage frequently had nudity.

    And I hope this kills the "they're only censoring it to get you to buy the upcoming Blu-ray" argument that people keep trotting out. The fact that they're doing this to a 30-year old show proves that's not the case.

    Don't worry goyim if you buy western products like the Witcher 3 it comes with porn that the west doesn't shame and is thus acceptable, winning 100s of GOTY awards from critics who would otherwise shame Japanese videogames for having for example a female character that has cleavage.

    Also, the west is producing anime now so you don't have to rely on your chinese cartoons anymore.

    Someone hasn't been paying attention the last two decades or so. By that logic Turkey will be a western nation by the end of the decade.

    Technically he's right, Poland is more the middle part of Europe and the shitstorm which happens there now, the "EU membership" is highly in question in future.

    And yea, f... this censorship, especially that last pic.

    The West will never produce moe or loli anime. Even if they did, it would be 100% CG as the west has no talent for drawn animation anymore. It will also have to have a character of each race, religion, handicap, and gender. I'll stick with my "Chinese" cartoons....

    Well, it will prove it if they actually makes a uncensored BD of it.

    Something that is very likely that they will....

    Not even trying anymore, indeed... Just one step away from downright cutting entire scenes from anime. Emphasis on "from anime", because we all goddamn know they would not do this for anything else.

    That's my thinking too. Like how Tokyo's stores took out most of their manga, then this one draft for law was rewritten so manga with school uniforms on them can stay on shelves. Now TV stations are doing same with anime. Hope it'll work as well.

    It's interesting to explore why there can be "offensive nudity" and it should be banned but why there's not "offensive censorship" even as a concept...

    Also, all censorship is offensive censorship. All you are doing is playing worthless word-games.

    Denouncing double standards sounds worthless to you? So there are acceptable forms of offense and unacceptable ones to you?

    That is because civilizations thrive when there are fixed lines of right and wrong instead of shifting windows of right and wrong. Modesty and chastity tend to be fixed values determined at the beginning of a civilization. Vulgar Expression , on the other hand, becomes a value when the idea of right and wrong shifts when a civilization declines.

    Censorship is offensive, when adult peoples have no way to aviod it. Simple example. W hen someones censors pornography on Playboy channel - ok i have other with uncensored. When all animes are censored, than i have no other option. I am offended by censorship, and i can't avoid it. In Japan soon people over 50 are > 50% od population - democracy - those peoples says: sex is legal over 50. This is tyranny!

    This is a war the Social Justice Warriors started alongside feminism but it's a war that cannot be lost and must be won in order to free the world of blatant censorship.

    Sum it up kill western sensibility and bring about a more open culture, especially when it impacts a storyline to the extent that it becomes unwatchable by today's standard.
