I'd like to hear other people's opinion on this matter. Do not forget that i ask, "IF YOU HAD THE POWER"

-edit- I should've added another choice: "I will BAN any usage of censoring in ANY and ALL anime, as long as I live", then maybe the question would've been slightly less confusing then it already seems to be

I don't really understand your options, but i think it's close enough to the first one.
Just create one format where stations can show the censored version for younger audiences, then one format where they can show uncensored versions.

The first Option sounds pretty good...

Personally, I like option 1. In general, I prefer the censored versions of shows when available, so if the uncensored one is treated like another 'season' (looking at you, Terraformars), my continuous play might get into some blood spurts I wasn't expecting.

(This kind of question reminds me of my Gundam 08th MS Team DVDs, for some reason.. if you set it to Japanese mode, you get uncensored video, even if you switch languages to English afterwards, but English play from the main menu gives the Toonami-censored version with a bathing suit swimming scene, rather than nude)

exclusive channels.

However, I doubt it would stop most companies from censoring given they use it basically as incentive to buy BD's.

"Yeah you want to see those nipples? buy the BD you ******!"

Create 2 entirely new channels exclusively for anime: 1 (G - PG13), 2 (R - 17+, no cuts and/or censoring AT ALL)

Create 2 channels. I need to enjoy my damn anime without having to see stupid blurry spots, random rays of light, and dark spots... they're so annoying and tbh such a turn off lol

They really need uncensored anime available.

Some of the chibi stuff is funny when it pops up, but I've seen others with huge black bars or obnoxious white glare.

I'm not particularly interested in "seeing the goods" in my shows, but when censorship gets distracting...

If I had the power I would have a two tier system. If you are under a certain age you have it censored. If you are over you have a choice to turn in censors or not, like in video games.
