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.
they showed rangiku without clothes......panned the camera from her face, down to the top half of her tits, all wet from a shower......and they can't show a number on halibel's breast????? wat......these animators are stupid.....they like showing glorious close up of matsumoto's cleavage but they butcher up all of halibel's scenes............wat are they scared people are gonna start jerkin off to bleach?
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.
Come to think of it, I was wondering why Halibel looked different when I was watching the anime today.Originally Posted by JP_Russell
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. 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.....so I guess to ensure peace with parents of Japan they might censor a bit.......
Maybe not though....as the cloth was probably censored to ensure no Halibel fashion frenzy.......
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.
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.

the animators will probably give halibel a full suit of armor/bone to cover any indecencies................
