March on Earth sounds like a touching, adorable story and I can't wait to give it a read. Anime catgrin Is it possible it'll have a spot in the manga list archives for more info sometime soon?

Chikyuu Koushin Kyoku is the Japanese title for March on Earth—you can try googling that title for more info (or find it on www.mangaupdates.com, which has lots of info on lots of manga titles). From what I've seen, it does seem pretty sweet and cute. I'm looking forward to it being published too!!

There was no mention of TenTen. It's sort of an over & done thing.

As they said in the Lost in Translation panel, censorship is applied for various reasons which change month to month. One month the marketing director may feel there's no way in hell XXXX can pass, then there's a change in people & it's no problem. It usually comes from above the editor.
One gentleman (translates Tsubasa) said years ago there was a title censored in Japan & fans kept insisting the company ask for the uncut version & the translator said they COULD NOT ask that if they EVER EVER wanted another license from the Japanese publisher. As it turned out the company didn't have the uncut version stored anywhere, but to please the fans by simply asking would have seriously damaged the relationship with between the 2 companies.
IT was stated the authors are usually well aware of all of the censorship that occured as it happens a lot with the stuff licensed in Korea & China. One gentleman joked Oda drew the line at Sanji with anything other than a cigarette in the manga but again, censorship is something most of the editors hate as a necessary evil.
