Anime That is Cut in the UK: The Definitive Thread

It's really funny to me that things like a single frame of animation get cut by the BBFC, but say...the entire Karen toothbrush scene in Nisemonogatari, and the Shinobu bath scene in Nisemonogatari went completely uncut. When MVM announced the release of Nisemonogatari a few years ago I was genuinely concerned that it would be cut. They're not very consistent are they? :-D
They're perfectly consistent, if it's legal and doesn't have the potential to harm, they'll keep it. If isn't legal and/or has the potential to harm, they won't.

Of course potential to harm is subjective, but it generally refers to use/discussion of particular suicide techniques and very few animes actually get cut on those grounds.

I think I have an old issue of Manga Mania from the 90s that discusses some of the cuts made back then I'll see if I can dig it out it might make for interesting reading :)
AFAIK, at the very least some of the Overfiend releases and stuff like Adventure Kid didnt even make it past the censors.

Urotsukidoji 4 had about 50 minutes removed to pass certification, someone still thought it was a good idea to release it in such a state too.

All 4 Urotsukidoji titles have some level of cuts in the UK.
