Indeed.Because the mindset of most of the western society is that anime is for kids whereas as we anime fans know it.There are different anime targetted for different age groups.There are shonen animes,shojo animes,josei animes and seinen animes.All for different age groups.

The misconception that stems from no understanding anime is what is the cause of this i think.

some things I don't mind censoring words, nudity to me, that's understandable - given the situation.

but somethings I scratch my head and wonder what in the hell?

for example pokemon editing out riceballs...


what in the heck?!

what's wrong with riceballs? well after doing some homework apparently the guy responded when asked why he edited it out with "kids won't understand what riceballs are."

number one: it's pretty self explanatory don't you think? rice... balls.
number two: even if they didn't know what they were they can always ask a parent or something!
lastly: they are supposed to be censoring what is deemed unfit for children.. there is not a dam thing wrong with riceballs!

other stupid changes like that irritate me.

and when I said given the situation, I'm also talking about bullhonkey like censoring violence out of Higurashi.

no.
just no.

it's not a children show, was never meant to be, and that is what parents are for. If some parent complained about his kid watching it, then I have lost all respect for that parent for being a complete idiot.

Now if it's on daytime television that is a different story because anyone can flip on the TV. However riceballs can stay riceballs dam it.

to Materia User:

The Riceballs thing is basicly 4kids being t##ts...

BUT on the marketing you hit the nail on the head, it's only JUST come out that adults like Comic books and Cartoons made for them, a lot of Series died to make that (and Fritz the cat can Yiff in hell!) It is just the anglosphear being over zelous, I'm sure I've seen some Spanish dubbed Pokemon that was more... Liberal, shall we say *Cough*banned episode*cough*.

As a fictional talking monkey once said: Humans are idiots
