WHO'S WITH ME?! We need to take a stand here and now! I'm sick of paying good money to support the anime I love and then having to watch the crappy censored versions. If this doesn't change then everyone will just steal it off the internet and no longer support anime productions. It's Up to us fellow crunchroll subscribers! If we don't make them change then they'll just keep screwing us over! We're what drives crunchyroll. Without us they can't support their company! WE NEED TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST CENSORSHIP!!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!

It's not necessarily CR's fault. They have to stream whatever the Japanese company gives them.

You do realize that it isn't CR's fault that the anime is censored right? Boycotting will do nothing.

We have to work with what is generally available in first place, and what is provided to us by the publishers. We can't simply change the video material on our own accord, and certainly won't "censor" anything on our end.

Okay dude chill out. You do realize thats how the shirt airs in Japan. Ecchi shows are essentially advertisements for the uncensored DVDs.

The self-righteousness is strong with this OP.

As others said, CR doesn't do any censoring. What we see is the choice of the Japanese management companies. CR can only air what they are given and licensed for. And sometimes, when the uncensored version is released on disc, they get to update the version on the site.

Boycotting CR changes nothing. The only thing that might get this to change is to get the Japanese to stop buying the uncensored discs. Because that's what is driving the core business model for this type of anime.

They do nothing but censor! Than lie about the censorship like Danmachi game. I won't buy it and I have deleted my account on file so they are unable to renew me. I will not support lying censorsing companies!

Thing is why is CR getting the censored footage instead of the raw footage direct from the publisher? Last I checked CR was based in America and their streams at least those outside of Japan should not be subject to Japanese censorship laws

Uncensored/less censored footage is normally only supplied to AT-X, a premium satellite channel in Japan that (when I last checked) costs about 3 times as much per month as CR. That is also is where fansubs get their rips from for currently airing shows that have any censoring. Not all shows are uncensored on AT-X, which is why occasionally even with fansubs you'll see censorship (at least until the discs start shipping in Japan).

A lot of the censorship you see on Japanese broadcasts isn't actually required by law. It is simply a combination of playing it safe and helping the discs sell better.

I don't know of any legal streaming service in any country that normally gets uncensored versions of shows for simulcast.
