Yes, they did censor it. At least, I assume they did. They kept cutting to this pan up of a space station or something in the bath scene. It was incredibly jarring, so assume it wasn't like that originally. However, a breif flash of Jung nipple did sneak by.
Huh, that's a bit crap.... Wonder if that US set has everything intact (not that I'm some kinda perv or something....)

I just looked it up and apparently 36 seconds were cut (are cut and censored the same thing?) so now I wanna see the UK release version to compare.....for science of course.

Well, if you ever need someone with a UK copy to compare with, give me a shout! :p

Gunbuster is the best. Get the tissues ready :)
Truer words were never spoken!

I have a question about this episode, did any of it get cut by the BBFC? Specifically the nudity in the bathing scene? I'm kinda curious if that made it through or not tbh. Not that I expect Lemon would be able to answer having nothing to compare it with and all.

But glad you're enjoying it, it's really a favourite of mine.

Yeah the UK DVD has a couple of cuts that are done kinda weirdly, screen just goes black or rapid panning or something. The US Bandai set keeps everything (bar some of the music?) in as far as I'm aware, Jung springs more full frontals than Gundam Unicorn.

Pleased to see everyone enjoying it though, it's my favorite series for good reason.

How annoying. The whole reason I actually asked was because I noticed it was a PG in the UK which I kinda though was a bit odd, although I'm not really sure how much nudity that's not really sexual impacts such things anyway.

I feel like it goes towards characterizing Jung as being totally brash/confident in those scenes, whereas Noriko tends to shrink away in the same scene. So it's a shame it did get cut, and while it's not a massive loss, little traits like those stack up to build a believable character.

But I'm possibly overthinking it, and the people making it just wanted to draw boobs.

Knowing Gainax, it's probably the latter and the BBFC probably thought that too.

Up to episode 10 of Haruhi, seems ok so far. Haruhi herself is rather annoying and like a big child. Hopefully I will see some change in future as I dont even know how people put up with her. I sympathise with Kyon.

Well, I just got done with Terror in Resonance. So many mixed feelings. Sadly, not about the story - more about the quality of the show.

How some folks have heaped effusive praise on it is beyond me. It's a good watch, but nowhere near Watanabe's best work.

Such a good series, but the character animation goes off model so often that it is actually funny.

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096 - Episode 17

Yes, it's flawed but I adore this film.

Having both the UK disc from Kiseki and the Bandai Visual release, the BV release is uncut. The BR release in Japan is uncut and it looks truly amazing. I'm happy that Gunbuster is still getting a lot of attention, it is such a great show.

This week's episode: Yukako Yamagishi Looks Exactly the Same. I still stick by my theory that Yukako wasn't originally intended as more than a one off character, but was retconned due to either a change of heart on Araki's part or editor comments that there was no love interest.

Slightly disappointed that they've translated next week's title as "Yoshikage Kira Just Wants to Live Quietly", instead of the generally accepted "Just Wants a Quiet Life".

Berserk Harder ep8

Bit disappointing that we're only getting 12 episodes - presumably we'll see the showdown with Mozgus before the end, at least.
