I heard they took off things that were in the Japanese version.... is it true?

And if so... what kind of things is it? Are those dumb things like blood or boobs or whatever or are they actually parts of the story that were removed??

they edited several scenes with albedo and MOMO, due to violence against children

Yes its true... you can no longer fully rotate or zoom the characters when viewing them in the status screen... and they change some scenes involving little girls and knives.

actually it was so minor that nothing was really changed at all, the story remains exactly the same

As far as I know, nothing about the story itself was removed, only a visual part was edited.

What's the point with rotating characters??
From: Bakato | Posted: 3/4/2003 12:24:52 AM | Message Detail
The edit sucks.... the origional scenes were so much better... and the ability to rotate the characters and get some good shots of them was great but no... they had ot remove it.

Yea really.... they take it out so you cannot look up MOMO's skirt... and yet... every other scene she is flashing you... and she is totaly naked during her Sailormoon style transformations.

Yes... panties are the devil... girls should not wear them. *snickers* Then we could find out if MOMO is anatomicaly correct.

The amount of censorship is so little it doesn't even matter. In one case, the US version is less censored than the Japanese version. I can spoil it for you if you want me to.

Do two tell wise on but make sure to put a spoiler mark because always someone gets pissed if you don't.
You play a game by the rules, the first one to break the rules is the one that wins.

why not just take out vertical rotation or something?
