It's hard to justify spending close to $60 for a show you're not planning to watch multiple times. I hope things change with the Funimation partnership. It would suck if Funimation kept getting uncensored versions for streaming like always, but Crunchyroll didn't for the same shows so sub watchers are SOL.

Some shows like My Wife is the Student Council President offer an uncensored option here, and IIRC Madoka Magica uses the improved animation of the home video release.

Makoka Magica was acquired well after it aired, as a library title. It is usual for CR to get the home video release version of those.

One exception I know of is To Love-Ru Darkness, (only the second series was a simulcast for CR), where CR was supplied only with the censored version, despite it being about 2.5 years after it finished airing in Japan.



What is going to happen with shows shared with Funimation and Crunchyroll? Will Crunchyroll replace their simulcasts with the BD versions when Funimation does, or will Crunchyroll always keep the simulcast version despite the partnership?

I suspect CR will end up staying with the simulcast version. Sadly, that means those that eschew dubs will no longer have a legal online source for uncensored versions of many shows.

This raises the point of why CR has never made uncensored versions of shows available that they do have home video rights to. I'm not speaking of the ones CR announced for home video release last year, but the earlier ones they sub-licensed to Discotek (i.e., Recently, My Sister is Unusual, Strike the Blood).

I would have thought CR would have had wanted to get the home video versions to stream as part of the deal, but I assume Discotek could have balked at that (although they don't seem shy about streaming their other titles).

That also raises the question of whether CR will stream the home video versions of any of the titles they announced for home video release last year (with the obvious exception of Kabaneri).

I feel like I'm a little late to the party, but I'm pretty sure I remember them at one point getting the uncensored versions of Monster Musume and My Wife is the Student Council President. However, it looks like they are censored again, so either I'm hallucinating, or they went back to censored anime.

Not sure about Monster Musume, but /my-wife-is-the-student-council-president has each season separated into the normal (censored) and uncensored versions. You may need to manually watch an episode of the uncensored version to update the latest episode in your queue.

I don't ever recall CR having an uncensored version of Monster Musume.

The uncensored versions of My Wife is the Student Council President haven't gone anywhere:

I'm pretty sure MonMusu was temporarily uncensored. I remember watching it uncensored, and I don't watch anime illegally, so it would have had to be here or Hulu. However, Hulu also has it censored.

It avoided using the glaring forms of censorship that many other ecchi titles use, so it may be that you are mis-remembering.

I started viewing the series 10 days after the simulcast concluded, and the presentation was definitely censored vs. the eventual home video release. I also check the Site News and News sections on a daily (and sometimes more frequent) basis, so it is quite unlikely any later addition of an uncensored version would have slipped past me.

Maybe, but I specifically remember seeing nipples. However, it was a long time ago that I saw it, so... who knows.

the uncensored versions only exist for a short time until someone decides to censor the content after the fact

If you believe CR receives uncensored material for simulcasts and then censors it, you are laughably mistaken.

The simple facts aside, that would mean CR would be going to a lot of extra time and trouble. Do you honestly think they would do that when censored (broadcast) versions already exist?

We have never touched *any* of the video. We release it as we receive it from Japan.
Crunchyroll never censored any video, nor will we ever censor any video.

Is it really not possible to get the uncensored versions for us to watch? Even netflix has uncensored.. it just bothers me that dubbed anime can be that way while originals can't.. lol

This topic comes up again and again. Perhaps CR needs to make sticky for one of these topics (as this one certainly isn't the first).

Dubbed anime on Netflix is uncensored because it is the home video release. A company paid (a higher cost than CR) for the same version that is released in Japan on DVD/BD.

CR pays for the same version that is on broadcast TV, which is just as often censored to give people a reason to buy the DVD/BD as to meet any broadcast standards or avoid offending anyone.

At this point, someone that watches fansubs will likely chime in and claim that isn't true, as they've seen uncensored versions of the same series while it was being broadcast. Indeed they have, but the raws for those came from a premium channel like AT-X, which costs the equivalent of around $23-$24 per month in Japan. (As an aside, I've seen some people claim their "right" to watch these fansubs, even in the face of available legal streaming, by stating "Japanese people see them for free". Ads on the broadcast anime aside, that clearly isn't the case if they are watching fansubs created from rips of a show from a premium channel).

If enough people wanted to pay substantially higher subscription rates, CR could probably get the same uncensored/less censored versions as a channel like AT-X, but I have my doubts enough people would be willing. Even if you had people willing to pay 3 times the current rate, if that was only 2% of the current subscriber base, I doubt it would be worth the justify the other costs that would be involved.


See but some of the anime isn't censored such as Highschool DxD which bares all for everyone to see. I think that CR should at least have consistency (Of course not taking away the uncensored animes but the opposite for the censored).
