Like someone already said, depending on the time slot the anime receives, some anime need to be censored in order to be shown on TV. Censoring of anime in Japan happens a lot actually such as the more recent example, Fate/Zero.

Censoring also makes people have more of an incentive for buying the BD/DVD discs. Besides censoring, BD/DVD discs usually have edits made to the show to help improve/fix certain scenes and animation; and of course the exclusive goodies such as figures and posters.

see now I'm unhealthily thinking about censorship.

What're their laws like now?

The US has pretty strict laws about obscenity on the public airways but I know at least in the old days the only things actually illegal to show in Japan were the (charmingly named) 'pink bits'.



Far as I can tell is Japan only cracks down on anime. Their Soaps can show all the ass they want in Onsen scenes but when an anime does it it get a censor flare

US tv could never do it the conservatives and soccer mom would bust down the sponsors door demanding the entire show removed
