Culture Japan Season 2 was broadcast in Japan on Tokyo MX TV during anime time - after Dacapo and before Working!! it was also broadcast in America on Mnet. Now its due to be broadcast in Asia - but not without being screened.

This post highlights "problematic" areas which I have been asked to remove do to broadcasting regulations in Asia - specifically Malaysia and Singapore. I just wanted to let you know beforehand why the Asian broadcast will have Mirai marks all over it and that it wasn't my intentional doing ^^;

Anyhow - the first "problematic" scene is this - apparently Mirai-chan's left "pupil" is showing. We are replacing this 8 seconds with something completely new though.
You can see the whole OP below.

I'll leave the actual quotes below each screenshot - for this one it was "Shape of nipple visible on girl’s left breast" (All episodes)

Episode 3

"Close ups of scantily-clad Arsene figurine and talk about her voluptuous figure and bust"

6853071760_79cec20a16_o

Just thought I'd include this because this is something they approved - but how is that different from all the other bikini shots that they didn't approve?

Is anime cut or censored in your region?

I'm beginning to think - even if we can officially get anime and merchandise distribution to your neck of the woods at about the same timing as Japan, regulations in other countries will still mean that folks would want the original stuff.

A Japanese figure maker mentioned that they would have to make the strands of hair on figures blunt if they wanted to release figures officially in certain countries due to regulations.

Would you mind watching anime knowing that it had scenes cut out?

How about manga - been given over the cleansing in your neck of the woods? I know that in Singapore they do this before printing but in Malaysia they do the censoring *after* the printing - with a marker pen ^^;

Manga censored in your region?

Anyway, if you would rather watch Culture japan Season 2 without the edits, then you may want to see what somebody accidentally uploaded to the Internets...
