I believe their stance has probably been tweaked in recent years. For instance, sexual violence content that would have gotten a 12 or 15 have been upgraded to 15 or 18 depending on the tone or context. For DxD, I did find it interesting that it got away with a 15 but given the age of the characters maybe they decided it would be best to slot it as an 18.

But again, it probably depends on who is rating it. Maybe the person who gave it a 15 felt it wasn't that big of a deal, while the person who gave it an 18 felt it would be a bit much for the 17 year old's mindset (they probably couldn't decide between Rias and Akeno so they used an 18 rating as an excuse to avoid making their decision on who is best girl).
I think, even back when Season 1 was released, we were pretty surprised that it got a 15.

Imagine if they re-released Strike Witches! Season 1 was originally rated a 12, so that'd shoot up.

Oh yeah definitely. I reckon Azur Lane may potentially hit an 18 for the hot spring episode.

I'm also curious why did Manga have to get it re-evaluated at all? I was under the impressions releases in the same format could just use the old ratings and that was why MVM are trying to get Paranoia Agent a new uncut rating.

I guess sometimes they like to do it so that it's under their name or something, or perhaps for some reason they thought AL used different discs or something.

One does not simply choose between Akeno and Rias.

Strange: Gantz:O was rated '15' when it was first released. I wonder why it was seen as necessary to upgrade... I think the detail of violence is fairly graphic but still an odd decision.
