Trust me man, I fucking hate it too. I made a similar thread in General Discussion if you wanna take a look:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-887515/would-you-pay-more-money-to-have-uncensored-content-on-cr

Censorship is bullshit and often times it's just there to drive Bluray sales which I find fucking stupid too. It's mostly not studios faults, but it's TV stations faults because they ask for the censorship and they have a lot of say in the matter. I get why they'd do it on cable tv (I get it, but I still find it unnecessary but that's for another discussion), but I find it ridiculous that us paying online streamers have to be bombarded with the censorship too. The Tv stations in Tokyo think we're like the Japanese market and we'll buy the blu rays, but the western market is much different. If we can't pay for it online, then we'll just torrent that shit. Westerns do not buy blurays often, we like to pay for streamed content and TV stations in Japan are too stubborn to fucking change their polices towards us. We're just treated as bystanders really, so they'll just treat us the same as the Japanese market and give us what is aired on cable. Hell, it would be nice if they even had the uncensored version of an episode up for like a week after the episode broadcast. That would be a good start at least and everyone could get a glimpse of the uncensored version for a short period of time.

I hope in the future there will be some legal outlets (like CR of Funi) that get around this issue, so we can watch uncensored material in a more timely manner, rather than just waiting for Blurays. But every once in a while you'll get shows like AgK that are uncensored on CR, but that's once in a blue moon.

Like I said in my thread, I would pay more to have uncensored content but as sonic720 said in my thread the possibility for that happening is very low for a few reasons unfortunately.

Well, Black Cat was veeeery disappointing. I wish they'd have done one completely based on the manga.

im not even just talking about censors for fan service,im talking about scenes with gore as well


I think the censorship of the gore is there to avoid traumatising people who were just searching for something good to watch and ran into people eating each other.

Yeah it is annoying if its over the top, but if its just a bit to censor out the 'adult stuff' then I don't mind too much.

Are we talking DiC / 4Kids homogenized hack dubs or are we talking pixelated hentai?

Yeah, i just don't mind it.


Not to mention if it's done right it actually adds to the show. Some censors are hilarious.


Exactly!

There is good and bad with everything.
