If you learned that Kite was originally envisioned as a non-pornographic anime, but the creator had no choice but to add in pornographic scenes at the behest of the production company, and that the non-pornographic cut it the closest to his original vision, would this change your answer to the above two questions?
yes 458 out of 1426 (32.1%)
