So Funimation picked this up?
I'm curious to see check this out. It says it a "harem" but I don't see any guy.

Were you just looking at ANN's page on the show? There's a guy in the show. Can't miss him - at all.

They can show Sekirei uncensored, but had to pull an episode of Strike Witches...

The 2 shows can't be that drastically different.

It all depends on what kind and number of complaints they get. One show may get more than the other for no rational reason at all.

I'm just glad they are streaming the uncut version as I've heard a few things about art problems I'd like to check on for myself.

Among the titles are the first four subtitled episodes of Sekirei, and the subtitled version of the live-action movie Ichi.

I looked on Funimation's site and YouTube channel and it only has uploaded the first two episodes, uncut and subtitled.

I saw the first two episodes and thought it was okay. It sure has a lot of bouncing oversized breasts. All I know is that Sekirei pushes the ecchi genre to its limit. I have seen a few ecchi titles here and there but Sekirei is the first I have seen with nudity. All that pseudo nudity (with steam clouds and conveniently placed objects) in the other series can not be compared to actual nudity.

hahahahahaha Laughing Laughing

Oh my I'm sorry but I'm just tearing up, Sekerei in no way shap or form pushes ecchi to the limit, that title belongs to series like queen's blade or qwaser. Nudity has has been in ecchi series for a while now. The only reason for the pseudo nudity for the steam clouds or obtruction of veiw is because your watching the censored version

One big difference. Sekerei's characters (at least the ones with naughty stuff) are all of adult age (the lead male is about 20). Strike Witches' characters are all early teens. Therefore, the latter was bound get tons of complaints.

I was looking at ANN's page. Of course I had to go all the way to the Japanese page just to find out. There we go. Alrighty then.

I guess this person never saw Kanonkon either, which will be released by media blasters in april, now kanokon pushes ecchi to the limits of almost being hentai, but it is so funny you have to laugh

To be strictly accurate, most are mid- to late-teens.

Hold it...! Didn't the uncensored Sekirei look ridiculous? Like with badly added floating nipples...?

Or am I thinking of a completely different show?

True, but they look to in their early teens. That's just as bad to some people.
