Yu-gi-oh Censors Cards: “Cheek Pinching = NG”


Popular TCG franchise Yu-gi-oh (which is somehow still alive and well) has provided players with another batch of cards, though westerners and Japanese fans alike have been surprised at the censoring of one particular card as the west seemingly has an issue with the most triggering depiction of cheek pinching it contained.

The original Japanese card:


The censored western card:


Yugioh cards are often the subject of illogical western censorship, with most having any sexual characteristics or religious symbols removed though there has possibly never been a change as preposterous as this one – examples of other cards that have been censored over the years:

    Japanese card: Two friends fighting
    American card: Rape commences

    I think they went in a different direction then they wanted.

    To me it looks like they were about to have (consensual) sex when the third one opened the door, but otherwise you're right. lol

    Reminds me of the PreCure Netorare meme. Wish it was popular enough to be referenced in anime like Gaijin 4koma.

    Hey dumbass, you realize Konami, the Japanese company, makes all of these decisions? So it isn't non-Japanese wanting censorship. It's Japanese xenophobia and forcing edits on everyone because they are Konami.

    Konami, like all other companies, only care about their profit. It is not a xenophobic agenda, but the fact that the censored version still sells and does not require them to waste money repealing lawsuits from the diverse groups that get offended by everything in the west. Yes, there's also people who are offended by censorship, but they don't sue or really go beyond an angry comment on a niche website like this one.

    That is not it at all, it's because of the american laws for the distribution of children's content that they make those changes for the TCG version, there was even censorship for some NES games

    Konami doesn't make most edits out of fear to its profits or popularity. For every domestic abuse panda (Gyakku Gire Panda) which justify an edit at some level, there are dozens of totally unnecessary edits that Konami has to pay someone to edit. These are xenophobe edits done out of a contemptuous view of Western society; "Those Western plebes can't handle shameful women bodies the way we the Japanese master race can."

    This is no different from when other companies self edit their games and Sankaku Complex posts a story whining about them bowing to feminist demands. It's horseshit. The company made the change because they have no integrity and they perceive the loudest voices of the smallest minorities on the furthest extremes as the state of the world. Konami alone should be the target of all censorship hate done to a Konami product. Don't blame the existence of the rest of the world for decisions that are done by Konami according to their twisted view of the world beyond their borders.

    It's not SJWs, it's not helicopter parents, it's foreign Japanese companies thinking they know what's acceptable and not in the US. They rather self-censoring instead of having a spine and standing behind their shit.

    I can never get over just how incredibly petty most of these censors are. This is the kind of inane censoring you'd expect from something like China.

    Anon 19:25 Not trying to be witty cause I'm quite dumb. Everything is in place for a reason and there are repercussions. Regardless of what you say, it's all a matter of perspective. My take is every sovereign nation has their norms and with that it's on the countries what they find acceptable. With that in mind perfect example is the SJW cancer that is today. Last generation was the 'religious' movement.

    Ethics and morals come from education. Law comes from the government. There is no law against crosses. On the contrary, there is free speech and non of these changes would be necessary by law.

    Damn, the west are really full of adult babies. Adult diapers must be in demand as well as babysitters living rich. I guess traveling to the west is off the list for me. Can't afford to trigger western manchildren with my jokes or else they'll put in the terror watch list.
