We've always been anime deprived in the UK, but this list definitely doesn't make me want to buy Netflix to watch the anime. Maybe we'll get up to par soon enough with the rest of the world, even France and Germany are doing better with anime than us and we typically share a lot in common with those countries.

I am tempted by the presence of Emma but... It's still not enough Netflix, you'll have to do better than that.

I find the BBFC to be scapegoats of a scale sufficiently encompassing.

In what way cause legally France is on par with us in terms of what's ok and what isn't.

It is not typically the issues of censorship that is to our collective chagrin, but moreover the unwavering classification fees issued to local companies. Much has been typed in lamentation over such a point, if I correctly recall.

Well they could save on those fees by not bothering with a dub i just wish the UK distros would work with the French and German distros to add an English subtitle track so we can save the same as what's out on the continent.
