Top 10 Worst Censorships in Anime

Seeing our favourite anime censored is always a kick in the teeth — series like Yu-Gi-Oh!, Shaman King, Tokyo Ghoul, One Piece, Pokemon, Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Terra Formars, and Sailor Moon, may have suffered the most.

Whether it’s turning cigarettes into candy, wine into grape juice, excessively blurring out gore, or those goddamn jelly doughnuts, localized and aired anime never fail to piss us off. Now it’s time to be sent to the shadow realm.

  1. Seriously?

    Why they have to put all M Rating into censorship?

    Can at less we watch a uncensored version?

    I mean, we already became adults and we are fans of anime!

    You think is this cartoon shows or E Rating shows?!

    What a bullsh*t!

  2. Terraformars had a ridiculous censorship. For what i've heard they turned S2 into Kawaiformars (i guess they were too lazy to handle a decent censorship, so they just changed the whole thing)

  3. As for the yugioh series, there are a lot of moments I didn't know were censored until later like the omitted moment Kaiba jumping off the window, Kaiba's card knock the remote off a Rare Hunter's hand also ommited, Roman's ripped arm in 5D's became just the sign in the dub, and Valon's omitted reason of being in juvenile prison (assaulting the local gang for burning the church that killed a caring nun that raised him). Also, someone getting slapped in the face are edited like Mai to knock some sense out of Joey after the Battle City Match against Yugi in yugioh and Misty refering to Pikachu's wellbeing, not Ash's, in the first pokemon episode.

  4. I'm sure for one thing ANIME not for kids 😠😠😠😠😠😠 why it's very 🔫🔫🔫💀💀💀💀💀❤❤❤❤👙👙👙👙💣💣💣💣💉💉💉💉💊💊💊💊💊🎃🎃🎃

  5. Fucking dickbrains turned lesbians into cousins. But didn't censor out their relationship. So fucking clever of you no brained bastards. No wonder why you don't own the rights to sailor moon anymore.

  6. Personally, I don't really mind 4K and its censorships on the Yu-Gi-Oh franchise. Some viewers are sensitive to the content in the Japanese versions, and others just hate not being able to understand the Japanese dialogue without subtitles or captions. I would rather sacrifice the controversial content for an English dialogue.
    Not to mention there are more fanfiction possibilities for Yu-Gi-Oh when it involves the Shadow Realm.
