I really don't like censored anime, and watching a show that has potential like Asobi ni Ikuyo I refuse to watch it with giant white blobs blinding me every ten seconds

does anyone know if this series is out in retail US uncensored? or anywhere for that matter?

I believe Funimation has it uncensored, but only streams all the episodes for its Elite members.

The first two dubbed episodes are available for everyone.

Yes, Funimation released it on DVD/BD combo pack on May 15, 2012.

As deadpanditto, they have it available on their site uncensored, but I can confirm that currently only the first two episodes (and then only of the dub) are available without an Elite subscription.

The last I checked, however, Funimation still offered a two week free trial for the Elite subscription. As with CR, you would need to cancel before the two weeks are up to avoid being charged.

If you have an Android or iOS device, the least expensive way to access everything Elite subscribers can is to get the paid version of the Funimation app ($9.99), which lets you view everything available to EVS members, but with ads. Also, I expect the apps are 360p video at best, which saves them on bandwidth vs. the 480p/720p choices available to EVS members.

Considering the paid app is only $2.04 more than a single month of an EVS subscription, some may wonder why they don't offer a similar plan for their browser based streaming. The primary reason is that it the ads can be blocked on PC.


A warning about the Funimation website: It currently has some problems. Navigation between pages is slow (i.e., click a link, drum you fingers why you wait and think nothing is happening because the activity indicator has stopped, and then the page eventually appears). Secondly, don't even bother using Firefox if you subscribe. IE has some issues as well, and Funimation actually recommends Chrome. They've promised to resolve these issues in an upcoming big site update, but there is no timetable for when it will occur.
