As an adult customer on a pay site that actively distinguishes between adults and children and honestly licenses anime titles, I would love the opportunity to watch the anime here the way it was intended to be watched.

Does anyone know why this season and last season have so many titles that are edited so heavily?

Are they actually aired this way in Japan? If so, why have the animators gotten so far out of touch with the censors?

Even if they are aired this way, can't Shinji get some kind of "raw" file? The DVD releases of the racier titles are generally uncensored, so the producers certainly have access to this stuff.

I may be thinking of another site, but I think Crunchyroll has shown some nudity before haven't they?

If anyone knows anything, please let me know. If this topic has been covered before, I'm sorry, but I think it is worth bringing up again since censorship has been in the news lately.

Buy the DVDs. They are censor free with the exception of some that can't be uncensored.

they are aired that way in Japan depending on the location though, the reason is mainly to boost dvd sales in japan and licensed dvd sales as well. This is just the way japan is doing and seem to work so far for sales in this also gives a people a state of mind they are getting a little "extra" as well.

There was actually a few that did have nudity in them, Hanaukyo Maid, which after checking has just recently been removed. It seems the other anime that I watched on here that had nudity in it was removed as well. To me its aggravating to watch any anime and it not be accurate or censored. I'll prolly just end up canceling the membership again.

The nudity in "Hanauko Maid Team" was only in two or three episode and were rather brief, like a few seconds worth. There was also some brief nudity in a couple of episodes of "Code Geass", not sure if that show is still on CR.
