The second episode of Queen's Blade, one of this season's most talked about & scandalous shows, is airing today in Japan. However, only one cable channel in the country (AT-X) is airing the show unedited. Every other station that's carrying the borderline-hentai title is showing a censored version, which is what the majority of TV watchers in Japan have to settle for (thank god for the Internet). So just how does one go about editing a series where nearly every shot features large unclothed breasts, & where one girl's primary attack is to shoot acidic milk out of her nipples?
Popular Japanese community website 2ch has gone & uploaded screencaps of both the edited & unedited versions of Queen's Blade's first episode (which you can watch for yourself on our new site). The answer to how to edit a series such as this? Lots of cropping, & even more random bright streaks covering every which way on the screen. People have been complaining about how utterly bad the show has turned out to be, at least plot wise. But if there's one thing Queen's Blade is good at, it's showing amazing fan-service. If you take that away, what's the point of even watching the show? Check out some of the comparison shots here (do I really need to say that this is NSFW?):
