Hmmm, a few contradictions in editing in this episode. Way back in episode fourteen, when Yusuke and Kuwabara where fighting the thugs controlled by the Makai Insects, the censors didn't like the thugs saying “must kill.” But here, the Doctor's fighters say “kill” almost through the whole episode. And then, Kuwabara gets to say “crap” but Ichigaki can't (admittedly, it probably was missed by the censors). And lastly, the censors allowed the tears of blood as long as it was shown in the abstract (all the close-ups where edited out). Needless to say, I am starting to think a completely unedited episode of Yū Yū Hakusho is a pipe dream.
