That decision is essentially the same as this old saying. "One man's trash, is another man's treasure."

Though this decision shouldn't be a surprise coming from Indonesian. That they are showing Shin-chan uncensored, does show some hope for Indonesia.

At least they aren't banning the show and second it can stay uncensored if aired as a late night anime.

Isn't this sort of like saying South Park is definitely pornography?

I mean, I've watched some of Shin-chan and its humor isn't for me, but I've seen things similar to what they've cited in really benign kid/family fare, too.

At least they aren't banning it...But what happens now? They've been told to censor it or push it into late-night hours, and they've said they won't. Will they get in trouble for that?

Crazy...if they categorize this as porno...I wonder what they would categorize the anime I'm watching at the moment? LOL (Highschool DxD)

I think it was on fox kids at some point.

I was about to rage but as long as they make the true version available I'll refrain from being a ass**** for now.

Seeing as Indonesia is predominently Islamic, this is not surprising really. This statement would be his expected proclaimation, but secretly he's probably a big fan of it. Wink

This is basically the same reason Shin-chan was cancelled her ein the Netherlands too lots of years back.
I absolutely loved the show as a kid and could even watch it with my parents, but unfortunately the majority of people thought it was too inappriopriate for kids. Such a shame, really.

That is the reason why Vitello unable to get a TV deal in America due to how inappropriate that show was.

I heard Grey Delisle didn't like that show despite she didn't worked for the first English dub.

... cited Shin-chan's exposed butt, Shin-chan spying on people's dates, and women wearing "sexy" clothes that expose cleavage as parts of the show that were deemed inappropriate for children.

I think it is worth remembering (or pointing out if you didn't already know) that Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim-majority nation. The Muslim religion takes a fairly strong point of view about parts of the body that aren't "supposed to be" exposed in public, like butts and breasts.

May I remind you of the definition...

Pornography: obscene writings, drawings, photographs, or the like, especially those having little or no artistic merit

(source)

I've never watched Shin-chan but having over 800 episodes and counting shows merit to a degree.
