Censorship, they're called Rice Balls.
I feel like Beauty and the Beast is a little much to be even be translated. Misty's like, 12.
I'm not even kidding bro.
Censorship just shows the laziness of parents. Here's what's wrong with censorship:
Swearing = What's the big deal? You're probably gonna hear swearing in public some time.
Violence = Well, if your kid becomes violent, it's your fault for not teaching them about it.
Nudity = You see your own genitals when you're taking a shower of bath!
Smoking = Is it really worse to see smoking on TV than get secondhand smoke in real life? If your kid starts smoking, you failed to teach him/her about it.
Homosexuality = Being gay is not bad! Why can't people get that?! -.- Your kid watches TV and turns gay (being gay might be genetic though.) So what if that happens? Live and let live!
BECAUSE PARENTS ARE THE WHOLE REASON THIS GENERATION IS SHIT
It all came to be, ever since, one day, someone thought of the most idiotic idea that cartoons are meant for kids. This twisted belief becomes the default mindset for animation in general in much of the world.
Not every Japanese anime were made for kids. Many of them were made with teenagers in mind. When American distributors wanted to import these anime series to America, they had to butcher the animation by cutting out the violence and rewriting the dialogues, just so that these anime can be marketed for kids, who are much younger than the intended audience. Franchise-driven anime series such as Digimon, Beyblade, and for a while, One Piece, suffered the worst of it as a result.
You can also blame those overprotective parents as the source of many of these cartoon censorship.
Believe it or not, those older Disney and Warner Bros. cartoons during the golden age of animation were never even meant for kids in the first place. These older cartoons contain lots of violence, racism and political satire which are considered to be bad taste in today's society.
I grew up with the Naruto English Dub, just not Shippuden. It was also the time where my sister would berate me if I like the English Dub. I admit that I saw the uncut version and the Dub was great and amazing.
I'm sorry if I offended you.
