how do you like to enjoy your media ? censored or uncensored ?

personally, just slap the appropriate ratings on the series/movie instead of censoring everything out

I would want a refund if they cover half of the screen like this



i didn't know CN and 4kids censored One Piece until i switched over to the sub version after they stopped airing the series..

I hate censorship, it restricts the rights of the author.
The world is getting too politically correct these days.

it's a common trend to wait for the Blu-ray version of some series if you want the uncensored version

though i have to admit that some manga series are too graphic to animate-- often time they will end up as OVAs instead

I like my anime uncensored.

But most anime that are censored today are Ecchi/Boobs or those with decapitation(Jojo had some notable exemple) and those always get uncensored on Bluray.Not a huge fan of this'but I can deal with it if it's not too intrusive(aka not Terraformars)

But the censoring and americanization 4 kids,Nicktoon and early Funimation used to do is garbage and i'm happy this practice doesnt really exist anymore.

Do not censor anything. Only give people a warning what they are going to encounter then let it be. I don't even like our rating system because who the fuck gets to decide what is age appropriate for 13 yr olds? I think decapitations and impaling are perfectly normal for a 13 yr old to see as long as they don't mind it.

Warn about the individual parts and let people decide what is/isn't appropriate.

Those black bars they use in current series are indeed unbearable, i still remember when the first Terraformars season was airing censored and it was a pain to watch.

Guess been a sub watcher saved me from seen 4kids desecration of the one piece franchise, heard they still got their hands on the Yu-Gi-Oh series btw how does changing a riffle for a shovel makes a scene less violent. LOL

I like it uncensored, it keeps the original author's intended work the same.

To be fair, it was 4Kids who censored One Piece at the time, not Cartoon Network. From the Wikipedia page about One Piece:
'On June 8, 2004, 4Kids Entertainment acquired the license for distribution of One Piece in North America. 4Kids contracted Viz Media to handle home video distribution. 4Kids' in-house musicians wrote a new background score and theme song, nicknamed "Pirate Rap". 4Kids' dub mandated edits for content and length, which reduced the first 143 episodes into 104. Initially, 4Kids originally created an English version of the first opening theme, "We Are!". It premiered in the United States on September 18, 2004, on the Fox network as part of the weekend programming block Fox Box, and later aired on Cartoon Network on their weekday afternoon programming block Toonami in April 2005. Production was halted in 2006 after episode 143/104. Viz also ceased its home video release of the series after volume 11. On July 22, 2010, an interview with Anime News Network and Mark Kirk, senior vice-president of digital media for 4Kids Entertainment, revealed that 4Kids acquired One Piece as part of a package deal with other anime, and that the company did not screen the series before licensing it. However, once 4Kids realized One Piece was not appropriate for their intended demographic, the company decided to edit it into a more child-oriented series until they had an opportunity to legally drop the license. Kirk said the experience of producing One Piece "ruined the company's reputation". Since then, 4Kids established a stricter set of guidelines, checks, and balances to determine which anime the company acquires.'

Even so, that's still not as bad as the censorship that The Vision of Escaflowne received when Fox Kids first acquired and dubbed the series. They didn't even air the first episode, which sets up the story for the entire series for goodness sake. As you can tell, I like my anime, and other shows, reading, video games, whatever, uncensored.

Never heard that opening before but its a huge turn off, they should have just performed an English version of the original Japanese openings instead of a terrible wanna be rap song.

Ah... the endless fight and the right to live in a free world, I do support the rights if autor to state their free through by their works, yet only for those who can handle it.
That's where the Blu-Rays stand for, but not always I do remember that Evangelion Tv series have censorship on some laboratories scenes that can now only be found on VHS and not on DVD.
Of the many form of censorship I have witness on anime the one that cut content entirely of the TV cast and set it on Blu-Ray/DVD.
And when the autor have to change the whole work in order to satisfy the censorship, example Oriemo.
