I wasn't really sure where to put this so I decided to have a new thread. It is my first thread, so please forgive me if I did something wrong. :megu-scare:
*sorry for my poor english


This has angered me very much, and I see that few people talk about it. We really have to do something with the disgusting western media who think this is a good idea. They are making out with fans, the author, fans, even people with brains. Deplorable

I copied this explanation from the website where I got the information for the first time in Spanish, I did it to save myself the trouble of rewriting it myself. [source/archive]
To understand the situation, it should be noted that the name of the band in Japan is "Tokyo Manji Gang", which in Japanese is written as 東京 卍 會, using a sauastika () for its writing. It is not necessary to think much about it to identify the reason why the symbol has had to be censored outside of Japan, as it could easily be confused with the swastika (), which is commonly associated with Nazism, although they are completely different.

this is a video comparing both versions [archive]

Twit in english:
Distributed version VS Uncensored version.
It's just a scandal! You don't have to censor like that.
This is clearly abuse!
Already the zooms are average, but long shots and black backgrounds, IT'S JUST NO!

The community clearly deserves better!

We really have to do something with this shit or they will end up damaging the series and we will be forced to resort to illegal gimmicks in order to see the series as it should be seen.
It would be good to make a trend for these absurd distributors to realize the stupidity they are doing and that we are the ones who watch these series and not who they believe, besides we are the ones who give them money.

I have created a twit in Spanish complaining a bit, I have few followers [and most of them Japanese] so I really do not expect to reach anyone, but I mentioned crunchyroll and I put several tag to have if someone retweets it ... in short it is anchored to my twitter profile but I leave it here in case someone wants to help spread it and that people start pushing crunchyroll a bit, I think every little grain of sand counts.
I was thinking of an anti-censorship hashtag in anime that I can use every time this happens since I plan to make a complaint tweet each time [hoping it will do something XD] but I could not think of anything good that would attract the attention of the people :anime-think:
*Please do not take this to mean that I am promoting my twitter account or anything like that shit, the truth is that I do not care if people follow me or not.
I just want this to reach a lot of people, if crunchy sees a slump of 1000 or 2000 accounts it is possible that its legs ones will shake a little and that is my goal.


Edit:
It turns out that now Crunchyroll is not to blame for the censorship. Although I do not see them doing anything so that the users are happy, it seems it is easier for them to blame the production company and that they go to throw shit at them than to try to solve the problem, anyway I updated my tweets, go check them if you want so that there are no misunderstandings [both the thread above and a new twit that is this that I am going to post now].

This is the tweet that crunchyroll gave in response [archive]

´´We don't censor anything. This is the version that Japan gave us.

We are strictly prohibited from editing or retouching episodes.``


I still believe that we should stop using these services that do not think about users first, but apparently the production company thought we were stupid and we were not going to complain about such an obvious censorship that if continue it will completely damage the anime.
not everyone can access dvd / bd and this is worth quite expensive for the most part, some of us have to depend on these services, also if they see that they can do it once and no one complains about it, could get worse.

We did this already with Ishizoku reviewers and we're gonna do it again. Nothing new but holy moly looks like the jp side of things decided to censor the release outside of Japan to be censored. We are very likely in the situation where we get some of the best anime almost every season, but unfortunately we're gonna peak soon, and after that we're gonna see a massive amount of political correctness injected into their fictional stories and more censorship from inside.

Yes it's terrible, but that's why we need to let these guys know that they won't get our money if they don't do things right. It may sound stupid or it might not work but we have to make more noise with these things.

The swastika existed for a thousand if not 2 thousand years as a religious symbol. Also why do even ameritard blacks and whites have a period about Nazis? The ones that the Nazis targeted were Jews, Gypsies and Slavs. Blacks never were marked for death by them. Also America never was conquered and suffered under Nazi occupation unlike my homeland. And now you see people in Central, South and Eastern Europe that truly suffered in WW2 be more chill than western nations like USA, Canada & Airstrip 1 that were never under Nazi occupation.
Seriously fuck the Western middle men companies. If you aren't a complete retard you should show what you think of them by torrenting Japanese stuff.

try to contact Censored Gamings or Raging Golden Eagle, they might be able to spread the words around. I don't have a twitter sadly.
Im not sure if RGE will risk it, because YT already has him walking on thin ice because of his believes. I believe he would mention it but not show it.

Checks out. They also wanted to remove the manji from tourist maps in 2016 because of the Olympics.

That's just ridiculous beyond belief. First of all it ruins the entire scene to the point that they could just leave it out.
Then the fact that it's not even the "bad" symbol. (not that it really matters)
Third there is so much Nazi stuff coming out from the west that i fear Japan thinks we are softer and more easily offended then we actually are. So it's self censorship not to offend and it is a sad trend to see.

i think it's similar with some high school anime where the theme is trying to fit in .. at the cost of sacrificing their own identity

yeah, but there is no harm in trying to tell him about it.

Here are some other people that you can contact on twitter. They usually tweet about censorship:

I have no idea, I do not follow the series in transmission, I'm waiting for it to finish to see it

but it is very likely that yes
That being said, I think it will be better to see the BD version, although funimation may decide to censured the BD version as well. :kekw:
[although I know where to see the Japanese version on the black market XD with sub esp]:hana-disgust:

Import from Japan or just torrent it. Fuck burger censorship

It's better that you don't have twitter.
Yup. I was using it for more or less just trolling and was already banned 6 times. Now that I don't have an acc anymore and I just avoid that toxic shithole in general I am ALOT more happy & relaxed

i did have one in the past from the day when it wasn't shit yet. Get banned a lot when sjw take over + a lot of sjw's victims often decide to apologize/delete their account make me realize that it's useless to defend these people so i deleted my account.
