Sweetage. This was definitely one of the titles I was looking forward to. And since it is not a fanservice title, I don't have to worry about CR's bullshit censoring.

CR doesn't censor anything. They run whatever feed the TV broadcast they get has. For shows with nudity and such, they only air uncensored on ATX... and ATX doesn't deal with Crunchy since they are a premium station.

Okay, but it doesn't change the fact that CR streams censored shows. Whether they do it themselves or the originating broadcaster means nothing to me. I know there was an uncensored version of So, I Can't Play H! available, for example, because I watched it on a fansub aggregator site rather than the censored crap on CR (until I got bored and dropped it).

You can't blame Crunchy for that, though. Dakara ONLY aired uncensored on AT-X, and AT-X is a premium station... Because of this, AT-X doesn't deal with streaming companies since the Japanese have to pay a monthly fee just to watch their channel, so they won't let their streams go on a foreign website. So Crunchys hands are tied... they either get the show censored, or don't show it at all.

True, but TV-Tokyo owns AT-X and they are also a partner investing in CR, so it would be nice to also stream uncensored on CR for premium members. CR already streams 1 week later for AT-X shows and it's already region locked so premium members should get the at least get the 'premium' versions

No one said they didn't, but you can't blame them for the censoring, since AFAIK CR has never censored anything that wasn't given to them that way.

Now, you can object to the JP TV stations censoring things, thats an entirely different issue, and one I'll agree with you on.
