Censorship of Live-Action "Prison School" Compared to Anime's (Warning- NSFW)

So, how gratuitous is this version compared to the anime and how much can it get away with?

Last week, the live-action drama version of Prison School debuted. This adaptation of Akira Hiramoto's manga comes courtesy of Noboru Iguchi, AV  (as in "adult video") filmmaker turned director of over-the-top and gross-out flicks like Zombie Ass, Machine Girl and Robogeisha. So, how gratuitous is this version compared to the anime and how much can it get away with? 

 

Well, there might be a bit of a double standard...
