This is A comparison of the US vs. the Japanese version of an outfit in the game “bravely default” (the US version on the left the Japanese on the right) Now, im not complaining because I want to see the original version, but because this game has a T rating!, it’s not exactly a kids game, this game has death, murder, genocide, and some things that I’m sure a kid could find traumatizing, but they censor a little skin. The thing that bugs me the most (and I’m sure others) is that when something is censored, it’s always something considered too suggestive. Not that I would want anything else in this game censored, hell, I don’t want any story to be edited or censored from its original story just because it’s considered “inappropriate” But it’s always the revealing attire. It says on the back of the game “suggestive themes” you see that? With that, any parent or person who buys the game now is aware that the game might have some revealing or suggestive attire, no need to censor, if this is a problem just don’t let the kid buy it. But for that matter, why is it that America has come to believe that nudity and suggestive themes are the most terrible things out there? Worse than gore, violence, and profanities? And why is it they feel so much more compelled to change and edit it than anything else. True some programs will censor violence and such but they basically would censor anything (we all remember invisible guns and “fruit juice” in wine bottles) but does anyone even complain about these things? Has anyone ever said “this is inappropriate for my kid” and If they don’t think it’s appropriate, then it’s the parent’s job to decide whether or not it’s alright for their kid to play or watch it. I mean, I’m fairly certain the kids wouldn’t mind it, remember that Japanese kids see the original, uncut content, and they are fine with it. We’re basically babying children, and in all honesty it’s pointless. So what you covered a little skin on a swimsuit, if a kid were to go to a beach or pool right now, they would see just as much if not more on a woman. So why are we doing this? There is absolutely no reason, hell the outfit above is part of a joke that the old man who made that suit designed it to be a preposterous suit of a guys fantasies, they do not edit any of the script of that scene, just the visuals, I think that the character unintentionally describes how the people who censor these things must think.
“Oh don’t look! Its too much temptation for your mind”
Welcome to the real world kids, there are boobs.
