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 :\
i'm waiting for Her resurrection form... ahhhhh sbavvvv
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:
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.
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.
Blehhh. I think they'll feel compelled to censor Harribel's release quite a lot. Pity, it's awesome.
Do we even really need to answer that question?
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
Maybe they have a percentage of how much flesh they can reveal per episode in order not to breach the PG regulations there.
Do we even need to answer this question?
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.
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.
