J's Chimes: Anime Censorships

Recently there are a couple of animes that bares it all this season and that would pretty much includes popular ones like B Gata H Kei, Seikon No Qwaser, Aika Zero, Kiss x Kiss and Fight! Ipatsu Juuden Chan DVD special. Such has been hot topics in animes such as this but something that caught our attentions are those animes that censor such Woohoo! scenes with seemingly cute icons that it gets you wondering whether should it be censored there or not? With such we look into the anime titled Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou in this case. By the way, If you find this post inappropriate or offensive, please do not scroll down any further... In addition, my favourite scene is when the bloodthirsty and ferocious wolf fell asleep floating on water with a smiley face... so cute~

The very first censorship of Keina in episode 5 of this anime. Gets you wondering... sometimes censorship helps presenting the audience that ecchi scenes can be comedic at times which is often used in B Gata H Kei.

Hattori rises up from the underground onsen and tries to attack the main character with her blade... Of course once again, a cute icon appears on the sensitive spots known to men... This kinda mysteriousness kills...

Seems like a rival of Hattori has taken up her blade and begins a melee attack... Another scene of amazing censorship on Teruya on the most common places in anime.

Korone's Shimapan was also not spared from the insanity of censorship and was once again replace by a mysterious icon.

An uncensored version was also released but i doubt it has made it on youtube somehow... Well at least it beats the censored version a way of two. In any case, such Ecchi-ness are norms in theoretically all animes you see now and there's no escaping it. The fact that I do not really like much would be that people referred to such as Hentai most of the time. it is a part of culture in Japan but such are often presented by Japanese in a seemingly comedic way that at times you'd just laugh at it hardly without having lewd thoughts that people who don't know about anime much would think of. I guess it's all about acceptance and stuff and how one views about such things. In any case, such fan services are appealing to anime fans alike and that's how anime promotes itself.
