The title says it all really.

If CR somehow negotiated with distributors and allowed for a membership plan to give uncensored content at a higher price, would you jump ship and pay for it? Probably depends on the price, but if wasn't too much more then I think I would do it.

Nothing is worse than getting black bars and white lines. Most westerns don't even buy blurays, so I wouldn't mind paying more to have uncensored content streaming on CR.

What do you guys think?

Depends if it became a actual thing with a backlog catalog and not just 1-2 shows a season
Posted 2/4/15
Maybe, but I watch those shows that are usually censored at different websites anyway so I guess I'm fine with the way things are. I basically use crunchyroll to watch like one piece and jjba (although I think jjba might be censored I forget but not like I've noticed). So I guess in short, if it wasn't that much more expensive to get uncensored content, then yeah I probably would.

A service that you pay any amount for shouldn't be censored imo. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense



EDIT: We did it boys. We did it.

How far are we going with uncensored? Is there a restriction of content?

Price versus Value I say.

It is too broad of a topic to really point out as everyone has a different perception of price versus value.

Am I getting a 10$ increase in my membership to watch Nudity? Bloody Gore? What about the amount of content am I getting? Am I going to pay a extra 50$?

I mean everyone always has "that price" where they say yes|no.

Let's say hypothetically they get it so every publisher will give them uncensored material for those certain members.

I actually don't know which price which would be feasible for everyone, but I was more just asking generally.

But the guy above made a good point that we're already paying, so we should probably get more uncensored content already (like, a lot more!). Publishers in Japan must know that westerns rarely buy dvds/blurays and the fact that we're already paying should be a good enough reason to give us uncensored content. Unless, CR isn't pushing hard enough for uncensored content. I don't know the situation, but I'm getting to the point where I'm getting sick of seeing censorship on my currently airing shows because 95% of the shows that I'm watching I won't even buy the blurays for and I'm not even watching on cable.... I'm watching on a paid site...

So if increasing the amount would fix the problem then I would probably do it, but I think the highest I'd go is $3 added to my bill each month. I think even $5 is too much because let's see... I'm paying $12 a month so raise that to $15 and that wouldn't be horrible, but going on up to $17 or more would be pushing it a lot.

All I want is some solution to this problem because buying every bluray is just not a feasible option and I'd rather not darkside the uncensored material.

I would think the reason we arent getting this is either 1. due to legal issues or 2. due to research indicating that the uncensored material may actually generate a backlash.

I am def agreeing with you that I would pay more to get more and see everything as intended. I just find it hard to believe that CR may intentionally not allowing it unless it would run into some higher authority.

(I think you might have been referring to child pornography or something? I'm not sure, I'm just assuming) If it were legal issues like that I feel like that would have dealt with long ago. Uncensored or not, it doesn't really make a difference in the public eye. Luckily, the public gives a blind eye to anime and manga since it's "drawings" and not depicting actual people so it gets pass.

If you're just regarding licenses, then I don't understand why their isn't more of push for uncensored material? I guess I just don't understand what these legal reasons would be exactly besides publishers just wanting to hold the uncensored material for themselves and release it on bluray. But the thing is the western market is much different than the Japanese market! We like to stream and not buy hard copies.

Anyways, I don't see how uncensored material would be bad. CR will get uncensored material whenever they can, like AgK for example, so their can't be any legal reasons except for publishers wanting withhold it because they want us to buy the blurays which won't happen anyways! Barely anyone buys blurays here. I wish CR could try to sell this point to them (maybe they already had?)

You're probably right that CR probably wants to us to have censored material, but I wish they'd give us more details on why we can't have more uncensored titles. We can speculate all day, but I'd like to hear it from the horses' mouth.

In Japan they have outlets like AT-X that air uncensored material, I so why can't CR be similar? We're paying anyways.

Also if CR had an membership that allowed for uncensored material, that would be a great advantage they could have over Funi and grab more subscribers. I mean, that would be huge!

Anyways, it just frustrates me a little and I'm glad you agree with paying more if it were an option.

Lol child porn does fall under the lines of what I was stressing (I dont want that) but more in the context that is more acceptable by the community I was more acknowledging extremely brutal series like Higurashi no Ko and Umineko. Those are some top notch violence. If we are going down H material, I suppose that can be part of the deal.

Just keeping my mind open.

I wouldn't because it really has next to 0 impact on the show at all really.

I wouldn't want to pay more money because I think that it shouldn't be censored in the first place.... But if they can't actually have that then yeah, I would pay more.... Though it depends on how much more we are talking about though...

If there was gonna be backlash it would be from parents upset that CR went from PG to rated R and possibly NC-17, and their kids have access to it.

I say, if we really want the uncensored version, just by the BDs/DvDs.
