Hey guys , I just recently found out about censored shows and I was wondering how many are there,I have watched (TerraforMars) and (My wife is the student council president).I was wondering if they are any other shows I can watch that are uncensored.

I've moved this to our Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.

If you are specifically asking about cases where CR has both the censored and uncensored version, I think Terraformars and My Wife... Are the only ones.

There are other shows that are uncensored and not explicitly marked that way. Generally if CR gets a show as a "catalog" title it will be from the content that was distributed on DVD/BD which is uncensored. Most simulcasts are censored in whatever manner they were shown on non-pay broadcast stations in Japan.

No particular titles come to mind, so I'll leave that to others.

What type of censorship are you referring to? The only kind I can think of is censored hentai, but with normal anime I rarely, if ever, come across anything that's censored, and when I do, it's usually something gross that's blurred out as a joke.

When done well, it's not something you really notice. The censored version will have a slightly thicker mist, which clouds the bathroom scenes, or perhaps a ray of light or something blocks a nipple from being shown.

When done poorly, it can look awful. This page has some good examples:

The Nogizaka Haruka scene they mention is especially bad; there is an entire episode that is almost whited out:

It's been a while since I watched it but I recall Recently, My Sister is Unusual as being at least mostly uncensored (if not completely).

I think Terraformars and My Wife are the only ones that were heavily censored, then got the uncensored treatment. Super Lovers was also controversial and had to have special restrictions brought to it. I've only watched one episode, so I don't know how graphic it gets.

Almost hilarious watching any ecchi anime on here, half the frames are full of beams of light
Sadly, it almost seems like some crappy Japanese marketing tactic to try to force people to buy overpriced blu rays for uncensored versions.
Glad I don't care too much for the genre, but I can see how it can be quite annoying.

Hey, you've figured it out.

I dont use CR when I watch ecchi anime. I just go to a different site, where they upload the non-censored version. Watching "I couldn't become a hero so i reluctantly decided to get a job" is so much better.

Recently got into JoJo's bizarre adventure and the first 26 episodes were uncensored and I loved every minute of it but the episodes after that are so heavily censored I'm thinking of just watching the episodes on a different website for free where they will be uncensored.. it's a shame though, really wanted to finish seeing this on Crunchyroll

CR doesn't censor anything themselves. The episodes on CR exist as they were broadcast on Japanese television.

That being said, Jojo's censorship is some of the least obtrusive I've seen, and is only used for gore or when an underage character is smoking.

I see what you're saying, the show is a simulcast. Personally, I love the gore and for it to get censored in such a way; it's an emasculation of this show were gore is a prominent element. I guess i will have to wait for the blu-ray to come out if it hasn't already.

Warner Brothers released season 1 on DVD, but it is not a well-regarded release. Viz hasn't yet announced when they will be doing their release of the show.
