Okay I think we need a petition here. If enough members vote for a specific possibility, surely they can't deny it!

I really started to become bothered by the censoring when it said beside them things like, "This doesn't look good!" Seriously, who are they to decide what looks good and what doesn't to someone over the age of 18? Are they Buddhist monks or something? I want to watch anime how it's supposed to be watched! Not ruined by overprotective, religious folk! Where are our rights?! Don't alter and ruin our anime and then tell us it's bad!

We're not perverts who want to see nudity and erotic content. Sometimes tasteful banter is what makes that anime so great!
We just don't want to put the show's writers to shame.

Who thinks there should be an option to turn off the censorship when we reach a specific age?
I am posting this elsewhere to get the point across. This needs to become noticed!

Why your petition probably won't work:

1. You're forgetting the fact that there are underaged users on this website; Crunchyroll is PG-13.
2. Even if there were some type of age restriction, users are easily able to change their birth year.

I don't see what being religious has to do with editing out content, though.

Well, not only what was said above but some of the shows are censored no matter what and there is no uncensored version. It's a great way to promote DVD sales though.

They can do the same with porn websites, but it's still illegal for them to do so so there shouldn't be a problem as there isn't a better way.

You know exactly what I meant by the religion thing. Cliché religious people tend to be all, "Sex is bad! Natural nudity is shocking!"
I get a lot of religious people preaching in my town about how swimming pool changing rooms should be completely sealed and unisex changing rooms and showers are sins against God.
It's just the way that this website tells you that the naughty things are "bad to look at".

I know that Ichiban Ushiro No Daimaou has uncensored versions. They just need to let over 18 people view them.
I know I'm not the only person who thinks this.

You really arent bringing up any good points as to why people should sign your petition, and you still don't seem to understand the PG-13 rule here.

I just don't know why people who're over the age of 18 are still told not to look at 'panty shots' and told that they're wrong.
Why aren't we allowed a choice? ): I just don't like the idea of them ruining the anime that the creators expected people to see.

I think they do it for the younger viewers in mind, not just because you're 18 or because it's wrong. If you want a choice, go look at the uncensored version somewhere else. Either way, you're not going to find it here. Sorry.

just show content on here like queens blade or steel angel kurumi but you must have an 18 plus setting on your profile. Also they could make it to where people can only set it once and not be able to set again, but that's just me. That's what I buy dvd's for.

I agree with that! Make the website for everyone, not just kids.
Get with the times! It's 2010, not a magical land where nudity is shocking and wrong!

I seriously doubt that this will happen, though.

Crunchyroll has credit card, or other payment info, for its registered users that can be used to confirm that they are old enough and also allow for parental controls with a password different than the one used to log into the account. If you seriously doubt that this PG13 rule will change then if a show is censored in any way, it should be clearly labeled as such so people don't waste their time and can go elsewhere to watch it.

I don't see why crunchyroll has to be PG 13 in the first place. (Not saying that I really mind the whole censoring thing) However there is Parenting controls that can be used for children. Also if you're that worried about your child, shouldn't you be with him at all times while he's on the computer? but I digress. This is only my opinion, something to keep in mind i guess~

Also please take it easy on the mods as they are only trying to do their jobs right?
