Things like the reveal of Halibel's tattoo, the bone breast plates when she takes her jacket off, and strips of bone over her breasts in her released form. I'm curious to hear how you guys all think they'll censor things like these in the anime. For instance, for the tattoo, will they move it somewhere else? Will they skip over the reveal alltogether? Will they remain faithful to the manga for that part? What do you think?

I'm not sure, I don't think there's much they could do about it without changing the design completely. It's not like there's much room for misinterpretation in the manga design...

I hope they keep it, despite it being one of the more "controversial" tattoo placings, it's not exactly worse than Mastumoto's constant cleavage shots.

Then again I'm just against censorship in any form, if it's an artistic choice then it should remain.

meh, if they can show a woman in a bathing suit or a bikini they can show harribel without changing anything.

I agree, but the animators might not.

Halibel doesn't have anything that needs to be censored. All of her privates are covered and there is no obscenity with her. She perfectly fine.

erm well, OH GOD, I`M SO ASHAMED. I don`t think they will censor her, remember this is marketed for teenage boys and what do they like? big boobs and action.

Hey, I agree; I'm not saying Halibel should be censored. I'm just asking how people think she will be censored, if they think so at all. The reason for this even being a viable topic is the fact that they've already censored her lower breasts by having her jacket cover her entire chest, so it's quite possible they'll censor her for the later scenes that are even more revealing in the manga.

Come to think of it, I was wondering why Halibel looked different when I was watching the anime today.

Well, if they do intend on censoring her even further, then when it comes to the scene where Halibel reveals here mask, they'll most likely have the mask cover her entire chest. :notrust Thinking about it, will just make more people angry. :(

Matsumoto's cleavage could have easily been covered up. I dont understand why they clothed up Halibels bottom half of her breast. It's pretty much the same. Stupid animators biased towards hollows -.-"

But seriously, they won't censor it. They will have to pretty much change her design completely and that wont make many happy. The number is placed there so they have to show it sooner or later and if they can show matsumoto coming out of a bath nude (bar the private parts) then theres nothing wrong with this.

Fans may say otherwise...but anime are more available to many ages..:D...so I guess to ensure peace with parents of Japan they might censor a bit...:D....

Maybe not though....as the cloth was probably censored to ensure no Halibel fashion frenzy...:D....

Well her release is also pretty skimpy as well so if they plan on changing anything, they'd probably want to change that as well -_-;

But then, if they only ad more "armor" to her chest, the whole design will feel wrong since the whole thorax/abdomen area is revealing so having one large chunk covered will not work aesthetically speaking.

May 27, 2009, 09:47 AM
It honestly doesn't look that bad, i mean if they can show Matsumoto prancing and bouncing around in a school uniform, as well as being on top of Inoue while shes naked then they can definately show Halibel.

May 27, 2009, 07:35 PM
the animators will probably give halibel a full suit of armor/bone to cover any indecencies................

I thought Bleach is aimed at people about 15..? Showing some breasts to guys at that age is more than ok. ;] (girls have to survive it)

They will definitely censor her. They never show underboob. If you remember they also censored Nel in the same way.

Top cleavage = ok

Underboob = Can't do it, can't work with, must be censored.

Maybe they don't show the lower part of the breasts because it isn't seen in public everyday, where as showing the upper parts of the breasts can called cleavage. Also, I think it's because of the fact that their nipples are right there too, and to show the nipples is like softcore porn.

Yeah some people have brought up good points in relation to matsumoto's skankiness

Just watch other anime shows that show off even more than that constantly. Its really no big deal over there, i mean her nipples did flop out and it doesnt look like they would make them overly jiggly for it to be perverse.

If anything it would be censored in other countries, but I doubt anything in japan

Lol they censored her in the anime after she reveals her tatoo theres just more hollow bone stuff under her boobs :\

Harribel's Resureccion (sp?) form will be...interesting. If the animators don't want to show any underboob, I have no idea how they'll pull off this:

http://www.bleachedichigo.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/hallibel.jpg

I guess any really innapropriate parts are censored off already. But her top half is going to be something else entirely in the anime. But I guess the animators have to be careful, or throw Harribel's Resureccion completely off-balance.

My guess is that Kubo thought ahead and sent in an alternate form of Harribel to the animators. Unless he only did this to annoy them or something. :darn

Anyway, I did some photoshopping, and this is what I think will be Harribel's new Resureccion.

Y'know, more or less. Probably more. -_-;

And if it does turn out something like this, then I told you so. ;-)

^This. That's probably almost exactly what they'll do and it doesn't bother me either way. I'm neutral to censorship of certain things, but I do think any more than that would be over-censoring. Btw, I'm loling at her release since it's basically Kubo giving the people in charge of censoring a big middle finger lmao.

Reiiko, I believe you're right on the money with that one. Although I'm expecting Harribel's breasts to be covered entirely.

Ha! I can imagine the scene right now:

Animators: *headdesk*

Blehhh. I think they'll feel compelled to censor Harribel's release quite a lot. Pity, it's awesome.

Anyways, before we get to Harribel, we still have plenty of omake and special episodes left.

Sadly, I have to agree on this after seeing one of the most recent episodes of Harribel. Nothing is more horrible than seeing original art being distorted. If i have not seen the manga pic posted by Reiiko, i would have thought that is the design by Kubo. Can't really understand why would they censor something like this when we have more boobs galore at the recent fillers :facepalm

Maybe they have a percentage of how much flesh they can reveal per episode in order not to breach the PG regulations there. :amuse

DARK

Yes, they will definitely censor out Harribel's release. But we won't worry about that for now- we're in the middle of yet ANOTHER filler arc. Even after the filler ends, we have to go through that long Ichigo VS Ulquiorra battle before the top 3 Espada release their Zanpakuto. So until then, Harribel's release will remain under speculation in anime forums.

You already asked that. And the question is how people think they will censor her, not if.

That is the point of this thread, to speculate how they will censor the scenes yet to be shown. I was curious how they would do it, thought others might be curious how they would do it, and figured anybody else who was curious would be too hesitant to start such a topic out of fear of any posters that might say something like "wat kind of topic is this, u just want boobies, u perv" when in fact there's no reason this can't be addressed and conversed about in a mature manner like any other example of censorship.

They've been censoring Bleach since the end of the Soul Society arc.

Blood is now almost completely black (so that it can be dismissed as "mud"). You never actually see swords penetrate people anymore.

Ikkaku was supposed to be drenched in blood during his fight with Edward Leones. He was "singed".

Grimmjaw rammed his fist through Luppi then blew his face away with a cero. None of this happen onscreen; it's only suggested but never explicitly shown.

Yammi was supposed to freaking crush that medical arrancar down to her waist with a fist drop. He...smacked her into the wall where shadows obscure what the result was.

Szayel Apollo was supposed to freaking tear apart and consume his fraccion. Instead, they turn into red energy balls that he eats.

Renji and Ishida were supposed to be coughing / vomiting blood after Szayel Apollo crushed their internal organs. They cough up...spit? instead.

Szayel's rebirth was originally presented as Nemu massively getting pregnant inside seconds then his disgusting self slithering out her mouth. It was replaced with a bubble of energy emerging from her mouth and eventually forming him. Not nearly as groteseque.

When matsumoto got "fingered" by that Chimera Parca, SHE WAS MISSING HALF HER TORSO. IT WAS GONE, as in organs were missing and ribcage was showing. The anime showed...none of that.

The anime got away with showing the hole in chimera's chest and then it getting split in two. The anime got away with this because the chimera was presented as a flat-out monster, and you can get away with being more explicit dismembering a monster than you can with a human.

You know what pisses me off, though? They censored Harribel, but didn't consider censoring Mila-Rose, and then they showed a swimsuit episode right afterward. Hypocritical much?

They did censor Hitsugaya's fight against Shawlong Qufang somewhat. Compare frames from the manga where his head's drenched in blood vs frames from the anime where it's dried and/or "scuffed".

There wasn't much need to censor Hitsugaya's fight; his attacks don't draw blood (only ice) and even though Shawlong completely goes Edward Scissor-hands on him, even in the manga you don't see the actual attacks or cuts themselves, only the blood flying. If you remove the blood from its cause, you can get away with more. It's all about what's actually shown on screen, and the context.

Take the swimsuit episode, for example. What's risque about adult women wearing bathing suits commonly found on the Beach? You can argue it's just as risque as a girl with a bone top and massive underboob, but the test is the community standard. No one's seen bone top under boob, but EVERYONE's been to the beach. Even the "tentacle rape" scene, if you look at it closely, was drawn in a way that skirts the censorship issue. When you see the two girls get raised into the air by the tentacles, you don't actually see the tentacle doing anything. The frame only holds their upper halves and heads screaming out, and even THEN it's merely suggestive dialog and not explicit. "where are you touching me?" "it's under my swimsuit!" It's all left to the imagination what those two sentences imply.

*sigh* I miss my ultra violence. Bleach characters started out composed of 100 litres of blood. When the hell did their blood turn dark brown and when did they lose most of it?

Also in the swimsuit episode Rangiku and Orihime use their breasts to make their sand castle.
What would be interesting is if they didn't censor it at all and it got to the scene to where the vizard vc help out Hitsu and Harribel gets knocked back. In the manga we see physics at work if you know what i mean.

I was very surprised when hallibel was all covered up and censored.It will be an utter outrage if they censor her any further.With her tattoo and her release it seems almost impossible to sensor her and also will tite kubo even allow such a change?Well if they do that then whats next?Censoring Mayuri's freakish face?

I get where you're coming from. Censorship is a mysterious field the likes of which our puny, mundane brains cannot fathom.

Some prime examples, that are similair to one another:

-In the manga during Yammy and Ulquiorra's first appearance, Chad lost his arm after being struck by Yammy. In the anime he was merely wounded. Yet it seemed perfectly fine for Ichigo to lop off Yammy's arm about 2 seconds later. :blink Riiiiiiiggght

-Ichigo's form of absolute badassness VS Ulquiorra segunda etapa. In the manga, Ulq tears of Ishida's arm when the latter intervenes. In the anime, his arm was simply reduced to something that resembled a crude, microwaved prostetic. Yet it was apparantly cool for Ichigo to sever Ulquiorra's arm just moments later. :o

Not to mention Lilynette's skimpy, pedophile attracting "outfit" completely unfit for a girl with a reasonably infantile look/demeanor.
Etc.

I give up...
