So I just watched the first episode of Queen's Blade: Rebellion and there's big blinding white spots over all the good parts! I mean come on now really? I'm not allowed to see animated boobies but I can look at real live uncensored nudity over in the drama section(Striptease Samurai Squad)? I just don't get the reasoning here. If age is an issue then make some kind of verification log in so I can see all the jiggly anime juggs that I've been missing! I'm over thirty and I can legally be as pervy as I want to be so quit holding me back

Edit: I meant for this to be in the Help/Support/Feedback section but I screwed that up somehow so whatever, I doubt any real change would come from this anyway I'm just frustrated/disappointed that CR censors their anime. Netflix shows the goods, comparing versions of Demon King Daimao, but I like CR's selection and simulcasts so rock and a hard place I guess.

Oh, it seems that you might believe that we are all spiritual beings having a physical experience. I see, I see.

Buy the DVD/Blu-rays then.

They do it to increase sales. Since you're over 30, you should have the money.

Just cause I'm old doesn't mean I'm rich, it actually means more bills. Although I do buy some like Fairy Tail I don't have the cash for all the anime I'd like to watch and I prefer to buy anime or pay for a membership to support more anime coming my way. But by the same right if I'm spending my cash I expect to see some boobie when I'm watching ecchi just like when I go to a strip club I know what I'm going for.

Then let me just say that this strip club does not offer lap dances and that you'll have to go elsewhere for that.

This thread pops up from time to time, so you'll probably find the full responses in one of the old threads in the anime section, but just to clarify: CR is not doing the censoring. You can blame the licensing company for that. And yes, it has aired uncensored on ATX, but they pay a premium for that exclusive privilege.

Japan has some strict laws about censoring
And correct me if im wrong but i think U.S.A also have strict regime about nudity.
My contry Norway as well.
Its aperantly better to show blasted limbs on the evening news than to show a little skin.

Not that i care too much, but i still think the double morale is a bit funny.

Thanks for the info deadpanditto good to know CR isn't doing the censoring and if it saves money which means more shows I can forego an animated boobie or two. And for FallenYmir in the CR strip club analogy I would consider the lap dances to be hentai(which I'm not interested in btw although lap dances=yes) where as the lady parts, aka boobies, are visible as soon as you walk in the door.

The "why is stuff censored" has already been explained above, but I would like to point out CR already has age verification. Go into your Video Preferences and switch the mature content filter, and you won't be able to watch Queen's Blade Rebellion. The same would also be true if your profile listed either no birthdate, or one that indicated you were under 18.

As for confirmation CR has no problem with animated nudity, just check out the first two Queen's Blade series. Those were library titles, acquired from the U.S. distributor, which is why they don't suffer the censorship present in a simulcast. That is also why the anime you see on Netflix is uncensored.
