It actually is WAY beyond censorship, they put a censor bar over a female character's crotch WHEN SHE'S WEARING JEANS. I don't think I've ever heard of a cameltoe getting through denim before.

Here's the original. Apparently MangaUp!'s scan isn't even as good in quality as the fan version.

That's not even cameltoe, that's just the seam up the middle on every fucking pair of jeans in existence!

Edit: I figured it out! Jeans are the problem! Clearly the solution is for this stronk and independently dressing wymxn to dress in something that is far more uniform!

PS: That's a fucking bed sheet.

PPS: Ironically the feet on display in sandals would cause actual footfags to still be sperging out about things so that look still isn't actually "conservative". Then again maybe that's why footfags are a thing in some places πŸ€”

That shadow was quite lewd, I'm glad they made it darker and rectangular for my virgin eyes.

Official scans can be really fucking awful, especially English versions. Example:

JP version

EN version

Im a bit torn on the quality bit. The grain gives it a paper texture. But the one without grain is... clean.

Most bizarrely of all, Square Enix’s censorious intent also resulted in a shot of protagonist Ragna’s knee...being given the black bar treatment.

LMAO they must be trolling. Or Malicious Compliance. "The boss told me to run an AI censor on everything so that's what I did. Got a problem with that?"

Or they hired a Muslim in their "ethics department".

Then the black would have covered the head leaving only the eyes.

They were hiding her back-of-the-knee vagina.

Wasn't even a chick. The character in question is a dude.

Probably some machine learning false positive.

In other news, piracy prevails again. Squenix can go fuck itself.

And this is why you either buy the Manga(and check it it is censored) or read scanlations. Highly recommend tachiyomi on android if you got a bit enough screen.

Cheap amazon fire + tachiyomi. Better than paying for this censored/SJW-translations that they want us to "buy".

This is some of the worst and stupidest censorship of this type I've seen.

And God bless them for it. As an anime fan from the 80s I have to say I am DAMN SICK of the girls with 12 year old faces and playboy centerfold bodies. Holy crap it's so pedo-encouraging.

I wanna burn any manga/anime with those child faces and sexual bodies on them.

"These adult women are designed to look like adult women, but have simplified faces in the art style! This makes me think of screwing kids!"

...Uhm, sir? I think you might want to see a shrink. This is the "orcs remind me of black people, therefore orcs are racist" of otakuphobes.

None of those look 12, aside from, you know, the one that is the most dressed of the bunch, doesn't have the centerfold body you're talking about...and the other guy's knee got censored. That's it.

I'm not saying there isn't some uncomfortable anime/manga, or that Japan isn't completely whacked on some issues, or even that there isn't some pedo-adjacent stuff...but this ain't that. Chill.

Its a foot in the door argument. They know you'll agree some stuffy is iffy, so that way its easier to get you to agree to action being taken. In which case they take away way more than just the iffy stuff.

That's why you reject it wholesale. If it exists, then it doesn't matter and it shouldn't be touched regardless.

12 year old faces and playboy centerfold bodies. Holy crap it's so pedo-encouraging.

How?

But even so, only one or two of those examples looked like they could be 12 to me. With manga being in a non-realistic style, it's hard to assign an age except going by what other works in the style have trained us to expect, so I think it's subjective unless you're talking about the obvious extremes.

Personally I prefer the mid-late 90's styles over anything today or in the 80's.

I do think all of these are way too sexual, but that's a personal preference too. I would expect the seller to put a suggested age range or content rating on them.

how about you burn yourself, faggot.

And that's the mindset that ends up with microtransactions in your manga reader just for them to censor knees and jeans.

You don't get to pick and choose censorship. Its always all or nothing.
