Is there anyway to get some sort of list as two what is or is not censored? I know licensing blabla bla, but I know there are shows that aren't censored. I just want to know what they are.

CR doesn't add censorship themselves to anything they stream; it comes pre-censored directly from each individual production company to meet the national standards for showing it on TV in Japan... Uncensored material might only be available from a disk-release distribution, and CR doesn't source their material from those, at least not for the simulcasts, anyway. So it is pretty unlikely that CR would have a list of shows from each of the various publishers, stating whether or not a given show has been censored. As far as CR is concerned, they're all censored, whether anything was done by the publisher or not.

CR may still add a rating for specific shows to be deemed as mature content, because other countries and makers of devices (Roku, Android, PS3, Apple, etc) may be more restrictive than Japan in their own standards. And that rating may not be applied by CR right away until they encounter an episode which warrants it, at which point the entire series becomes rated mature, not just that episode. I don't think there is a visible list or a flag that we can see as users when browsing the show pages to determine whether a show is rated mature or not though. It's just a matter of whether it shows up on your device when you try to play it. If you use the web player, I'm pretty sure that is exempt from the mature setting (which is not on unless you change it yourself), so you have the situation where it appears that you can play a show via the web, but not on one or more of the devices.

If that happens mid season, a show can seem to disappear from those various devices and then you may have to change your video preferences to allow showing of mature content for those certain shows, if you have not ever done that.

TL;DR Pretty sure there isn't a list of censored shows, because that is done individually by each publisher, not by CR.

Basically, if it was acquired as a simulcast, it will have any censorship that was in the over the air (not premium channel) broadcast. If it was acquired as a library title, it will be uncensored.

I don't know of any list that separates simulcast and library titles.
