Crunchyroll Censors Juden-Chan

The idea of Crunchyroll simulcasting "Fight Ippatsu! Juden-chan," or as they're calling it "Charger Girl," seemed laughable when it was first announced. But then I heard that they were actually working with Avex to make the series a little more "family friendly." Now I'm flat out against censorship & probably wont be watching any more of the series on Crunchyroll because of it, but I guess this was the only way they could show it. So what's done had to be done.

So when I first heard that Juden-chan would be censored, I thought "there goes all the peeing scenes." But then I watched the first episode, which premiered today on Crunchyroll, all of the peeing scenes were left intact! There were other edits, mind you (basically mild nudity), but it seemed weird that the erotic peeing was untouched. So then I watched episode 2, which also went up at the same time on CR, & this time ALL of the peeing scenes were edited out. Granted, two of the urination scenes were accompanied by nudity, so those scenes probably had to edited because of that. But the third peeing scene had no visible nudity in the shot. This is really quite odd.

(EDIT: Just remembered that both Code Geass & Kigurumikku have uncensored nudity on Crunchyroll. Can someone explain this mess to me?)

Not only were all three peeing scenes left in episode 1, but there were very few other edits. Episode 2, however, is another story. Besides all three peeing scenes (will every episode have three peeing scenes?) being removed, there tons of other edits as well. I've taken screenshots of all the major changes. Check out the comparisons below. This is totally NSFW, by the way:

Plug's exposed butt in the opening scene of episode 1 was really the only noticeable edit in the whole thing. Seems like a mild thing to edit to me, especially considering all the things that made it past the censors. We even briefly see her uncensored behind later in episode 2.

On to episode 2. I'm not positive if the above shot is actually an edit or not. Her areola looks to be painted over on Crunchyroll's video, but it may just be because I'm not watching the video in 480p & the colors blend together.

Poor Millie-chan gets a lot of edits in this ep. This scene of her "enjoying" the tentacles is completely removed. Apparently the girls in this series urinate when they orgasm, all part of the creator's fetish. The rest of the scene, which shows her face in orgasmic bliss & mascot Bitch-kun yelling at her & calling her a slut for enjoying it, remains untouched however.

Again, poor Millie-chan gets edited. In the Japanese televised version, Plug floats across the screen. In Crunchyroll's stream, she's standing there stationary over the TV set. This is peeing scene number two.

Transformation scene gets slaughtered. As hinted out in the promo for the series, Plug orgasms while she transforms. As such, she has to urinate herself. Though if you're watching this on Crunchyroll, you'd never know it. A long naked shot of her is replaced by a repeat shot of her sticking her tongue out in bliss, though slowed down a good lot.

Breast shots, of course, are removed entirely. But her butt remains left in for some reason.

During the light-bondage struggle Plug & Aresta fall into, a mysterious dark spot is added over Aresta's crotch. This is in order to hide the fact that she's enjoying it, though her unedited face in the shot afterwords makes it clear she is.

A stationary shot of her face in the CR version. & so ends the episode. Though there were lots of edits, the following is a list of shots that were surprisingly NOT edited in Crunchyroll's stream. Note that most of them (specifically all the peeing shots) come from episode 1. Only the final two really come from the second episode:

The irony is every episode of Juden-chan begins with a cute anti-piracy warning. But if they wish to censor what we see, how do they expect us not to search for the uncensored version through other channels?

Though I am also disappointed, I don't find this so unusual. They also censored School Days and Strike Witches by removing all of the nudity in both of these programmes.

Also, not all of the Japanese broadcast stations that are airing Juden-chan are showing it uncensored.

Actually, AT-X currently is the only channel in Japan airing it. So the "uncensored" version (I'm sure the DVDs will show even more) really is the only version out there right now.

The difference with Strike Witches & School Days is that Crunchyroll was streaming the censored version that aired on Japanese TV. For Juden-chan, they actually worked with Avex to make the changes.

I think there's some scattered around here & there, but it's not like there was TONS of it or anything.

damn, they seem to have kept in quite a bit for the final episode. Sure, we missed out on Aresta's awesome seduction scene (or not... thanks again, Nebs ^^), but they got away with at least one pissing scene, and with a loli of all things XD (I might not count the dogs on Millie-chan, since it's far from sexualized and you see Biter-kun do it in the opening all the time). Probably most surprising, though, is that the eyecatch managed to be completely unscathed. Crunchyroll actually kept Plug's nipple when it appeared, albeit briefly (not "you have to pause to catch this" brief, but still brief).

On another note, doujin circle Tsurikichi Doumei are the first to do to Aresta (and Plug) what Kimigabuchi did to Dita. For that, they deserve to be raised to a god-like status (at least that's what I would think if they didn't already deserve it for some of their prior accomplishments). ^^ -Yamato

I'm not sure which was hotter- Aresta's scene, or the topless boob-touching yuri make-out in Millie-chan directly before it. =b

I guess because Plug had it partly covered, it was okay? They're see-through chest areas usually aren't censored either. There was more peeing at the end of the ep that was kept in too, don't forget.

After Googling Tsurikichi Doumei, I'm somewhat familiar with their work. Link to this Juden-chan doujin? =b

it should be obvious, but I guess it's obligatory to point out "NSFW".
