That and the union scenes when they form Aquarion, they're practically nude.


The aspects of being nude and purposely showing a random boob have different merits, although both aspects are both purposely thrown in, one has a natural feel to it, and the other is just service...

Breasts and nipples have so much attention based on them, it makes them have even more sex appeal then they normally would if they were always exposed. Sure, a reason to censor them could be to keep the graphic nature of them away from "innocent minds" who view it. However, I think it is done for even more sex appeal, so that those watching the anime can let their minds run wild.
To me, they make nipples far more attractive than in real life anyway lmao

The sexual appeals is the major part of those anime. If the show is too much for the "innocent minds", then they shouldn't even air it on those channel in the first place. (A good example would be Manyuu Hikenchou, the censored version is pretty much worthless... The entire screen is white on almost every scene).

There's a reason why the manga artist draw them in there. I am heavily against anime producer censoring out their drawing. Either way it's all comes down to the money part. Paying more for what you getting...

Personally I either watch uncensored version or not watch it at all... Especially the one that has ecchi element in it... If you going to show an ecchi anime by censoring the ecchi part of it, then there's no point of watching... (For those of you who perfectly separates mature/ecchi, you know what I meant...)

That made me laugh.

Theres nothing really to add to this other then, anime companies have it rough, being able to get your show seen by more is better, and having a selling point of uncensored dvd's. Theres licencing and time slot changes for US shows that wanna break the pg relm. And many times its not worth the effort, Its either a hit or miss of fan service. So they would rather allow the censorship and get shown in more places, so that they can in return continue a profession thats very hard to get by these days.

Should we have a more mature option for viewing our animes? probably. However, like many many say, they want you to like their anime and go buy the dvd so they can make profit for their services. Not to mention the unfortunate reality that anyone with a computer can wait for the dvd to release and find a hack download. So where the support for the anime we lov

I think im turning this into a differnt discussion. END.

You win the internet, finally somebody who understands why they do it and that last statement, so damn true.

ALL NIPPLES AREN'T PERFECT LITTLE ROUND PINK BUDS!

The point here is not breaking any "PG relm" or the rating system... The problem is the channel they decided to air it on. There are plenty mature rating showing on different time slot and different channel. "And many times its not worth the effort, Its either a hit or miss of fan service. " Changing time slot not worth the effort? So Why would they choose the censored version on some channel that probably have some little kids that have no idea what they watching... That's just waste in time and money...

Sure pirating is a big issue... There's no other way of handling it until maybe someone came up some brilliant ideas.

I don't even see why it matters showing "nips". If you are a young child do you even really think about it? Of course not. You just watch the anime for what it is. And if you are older, enjoy I guess. You can see this in real life all the time so I dont see the issue

I imagine that a lot of it is what one poster already mentioned, that being the sex appeal. Also, if they don't show you the whole thing, it gets you much more riled up. Also, there's a desire to watch more because you're subconsciously hoping that, "if they showed that much, maybe they'll show more later." It's kind of the same concept as ending episodes at a very vital or intense point in the story; the cliff hanger if you will. The goal is to get you to watch more.

Holy moly it took me a sec to realize what you were referring to, for a second there I thought that this was going to be the most red neck post I'd ever read.

As to censoring in anime, they've got to give you some kind of incentive to buy the blurays right?

In way I wouldn't mind paying a little extra for uncensored episodes on CR and if they then let you download those episodes legally because you are paying a larger subscription fee or offer the whole series for a slightly cheaper price to download (ciz it would be digital). I would totally go for that, sure data loss can happen and their is a different value of actually having the physical product. But it still takes like 2 years or more for North America retailers to pick up a show, dub it and package it and sell it. I only watch stuff now in Japanese and the subs that they have on the simulcasts are pretty decent and I certainly have the hardrive space for it. To me the whole censoring thing made fans like me bitter. It really does not make me want to buy it, because it is forced and they dont give the consumer a choice.

If I want to watch anime for fanservice, I watch ecchi.
I mostly watch anime for the stories, so I don't care about the fanservice in Sankarea. The story in Sankarea is so good that they don't really need any fanservice.

OK did anybody else, on their first impression, read that title entirely differently?

My first thought was 'wow that's kind of racist, if not entirely impossible!"

Post of the day. Sankarea is one of those series from this Spring Lineup that doesn't even need fan-service to add flavor to the show. Can't wait to see what happens next (:

They don't show the nipples for the tease. At this point the viewer can draw them in with their own imagination. Also maybe not for this show, but in others you know there was no nip in TV but on the BD they added some in. Who knows, this is just another type of fanservice that has a different approach than nippled breasts
