Hijacked by Kippu.
Please discuss your opinions about publishers who edit and cut things before releasing certain manga volumes.
-Do you care?
-Do you think it's stupid and they should just put a viewer discretion warning instead of cutting out parts?
-Do you think they have the right to cut/edit since they're the ones publishing it?
-Did you ever want to buy a manga but stopped since it's been edited/cut some parts?

Please discuss and give your opinion on the matter of edits on manga.

I think editing on shows and other things has gone too far.I think it's an insult to creators to edit their work AT ALL. It should be treated with respect. who else thinks so?

Oh, nvm, I think I know what you mean.

Doesn't it technically mean that if it is editted and brought around worldwide, that the creator gets more money in their pocket? I honestly don't think they'd be too upset about that. Sure, it's being changed, but they're getting what they came for, aren't they? And if someone gets permission to edit it, they can, whether the creator feels insulted or not. Bleh. Let's just leave it at "it's complicated".

Are you referring edited anime?

Sure it's disrespectful to the creator but consider the fact the license holder has the right to edit it for localization. Moreover, the creator doesn't care anyway so long as they stick to the agreement.

I thought you said eating and such.
I was looking forward to that thread.

But ermm... I suppose if the creator/author authorises it there should be no problem?

exacta! fujiwara10 why not a viewer discretion. there are tv shows inthe day and even in the early-nite that aren't supposed to be for kids. So why the big deal for anime.
