What is up with the censorship? I didn't put in my age just to be censored from the good stuff! I am not a little kid after all...
Fan service aside, its pretty distracting calling even more attention.

It is censored by the anime creators/providers to get people to buy the uncensored DVD/BRs,

I believe there's also Japanese broadcasting laws that require a certain level of censorship.

That might be true as well, but I think my reason holds truer for the oversea markets. But in either case CR, etc. are not doing the censorship.

I've moved this to Site Support/Minor Questions.

Putting your age in to allow seeing the mature content videos just affects which shows you can see, not which version of a show you can see (except maybe Terraformars, which is the only case where CR actually has both a censored and a non-censored version of the same show--I'm not sure how that works.)

With simulcasts CR is generally able to get only the version whic appears on broadcast TV in Japan, where it is also censored because of their laws, and also to some extent to encourage BD sales later. When it's shown uncensored in Japan it's only on pay channels. It's either too expensive or simply not possible for CR to negotiate licenses for that version.

With catalog titles CR often does get the uncensored version, since that's often from the DVD or BD version that's already available with English subtitling.
