by Kyle Pope, Nov 28th 2001
Cowboy Bebop: Sympathy for the Devil
1) Spike's lower nudity blacked out during surgery sequence. (Unnecessary since nothing was shown)
2) Blood and bullet hole digitally removed from Giraffe's back.
3) Scene of Wen under his father's charred body after the gate explosion shortened.
4) Flash and blood of bullet impact to Wen's head in the warehouse digitally removed.
5) Blood splatter on warehouse floor digitally reduced.
6) Jet's "Oh, shit..." changed to "Oh, crap...".
7) Jet's second "shit" removed.
8) Bullet hole digitally removed from Wen's forehead.
The first of the "lost episodes" makes its appearance. I'm still at a loss to understand why it was deleted in the first place. The edits to this one were minimal and concentrated mainly around the damage bullets do to human flesh. Nothing here that hasn't shown up in edits of other episodes. Actually of the three skipped episodes this one has the highest quotient of things CN is likely to edit.

It's only one week 'till Xmas, but Justin is distracted by getting hammered by questions about new seasons of every show under the sun.

Between the Sony Pictures hack (which is just such a spectacular plane crash of an incident that I can barely wrap m...

Kiss of the Rose Princess' first volume is a lot of fun. It may lack plot direction, but the jokes are spot-on. ― There is something about a reverse harem that invariably leads one to wonder whether or not it was based on an otome game. In the case of Kiss of the Rose Princess' first volume, those fleeting thoughts vanish fairly quickly as it becomes obvious that Aya Shouoto's shoujo series is less a...
