Square Enix's global 'Manga Up!' app heavily censors its manga.

It looks like Square Enix's "ethics department" strikes again.

This would be pretty much obvious they would go that route, seeing as they let their woke translators and localizers roam free, then it means their entire western departments are full of mentally ill color haired freaks.

Their passing the buck to the platform holders. Which is a horseshit excuse when you have Azur Lane on those same platforms.
At least their actually calling it censorship instead of downplaying it by calling it "edits".

it's obvious they are using some shitty AI to do this considering some of the silly false positives like the dude's fucken knee and the chick wearing pants. would not be shocked if they just ran everything into the algorithm and did not even bother to double-check it.

a lot of beta cuck soy dick-riders have been giving them slack over the whole "but it's for the app stores" excuse. said people need to be told to shut the fuck up. I dont give a fuck if it's "for the app stores" the app stores should not be requiring this level of bullshit censorship in the fucken first place. if these manga are perfectly fine being in a normal book store or library unaltered then why the fuck should they need to be butchered like this "for the app stores", some people are just that fucken retarded that they can't see the issue here and how its yet another example of outside influence causing the Japanese to censor themselves to cater to outside markets. in the same way payment processors are also applying pressure on them to censor as we saw with the DMM (i think it was DMM?) and master card

so no. "it's for the app stores" is not a fucken excuse and I better not see anyone try and downplay this shit or let them off the hook. they deserve to be shat on 100% for this shit just as much as the app stores themselves do, fuck them both tbh

Am I suppose to pay for this shit for each chapter? That’s how they want to combat piracy by censoring a lot of that, and pander to Twitter crowd that don’t buy these mangas? Lol they need to take a look of themselves in the mirror. Whoever is in charge of the company, and the ethics department needs to take their heads so far out of their assholes, because this is a fucking disaster. Honestly, Square Enix should be ashamed

Kinda shows how out of touch these publishers are with their true demographic. No sane anime fan would pay for botched translation and censorship in their versions, only casual morons and simps would stoop so low as to buy subpar garbage and defend it like the NPC's they are. Up till now, all western manga or hentai manga publisher lets their translators/l;localizer put in any garbage they want. It seems only the scanlation versions keep true to the meaning of what is being said or written.
