True, but this isn't being shown on TV.

Still, I agree with your point: times have certainly changed. I doubt Sailor Moon would be censored in the same way if shown on TV today, if it would be censored at all. Back then, there were groups that felt shows needed to be adjusted for American tastes and expectations. It is different now since there is a large audience that expects what was originally produced.

Well, censoring and its system has changed over the years but knowing the Western side, they usually go over the edge with their censoring. (ex. Yugioh 5d's)

Sankarea is definitely enjoyable so far though as there is an actual story plot beyond the fan-service

cat hair boy see rea not moving then realize must do best to protect her.

looking next ep yea maybe cat out of the bag?

Ok, that tub scene was pretty disturbing, and aside from relationship development, I can't see what else this episode tried to accomplish. Maybe his realization at the end was the connection? Still, series is interesting.

Maybe she needs to eat some roughage to get semi normal like the cat.

Eh... I dont think #4 was very fan-servicey... Ranko's panty-shots were more fan service-y in my opinion.

I love the comedy in this show, and the early love-confessions in this and two other shows this spring is a nice change from the 12-25 episodes drawn out love triangles.

It was a good episode. I lol'd when Chihiro realized Sankarea was his dream come true.

Looks like eating the hydrangea leaves helps Babu get to normal. I wonder how long it will be before Chihiro realizes Sankarea needs some.

Oh, that's something I haven't thought of. Interesting concept you have there.

Bull shit.. Ranma 1/2 had ranma playing with his own breast for everyone to see.. Sailor moon was being aired to 8+ year old of course there going to cut some shit. It just matters where and wen there being aired

I have seen a lot of risky anime on the sci Fi channal back in the 80's
