I don't understand how this figure makes a show less child-friendly. If anything it becomes a general audience show, not just strictly for kids. I mean seriously, the target audience of the show in the West probably doesn't even realize what makes this figure NOT child-friendly.

I'm pretty sure that this is Sabans doing what a shame.

Uhhh...Angewomon's been like that since the show's inception! Nobody complained about her looks back then! Why complain about it now? Besides, I don't see what's wrong with it. I swear, people these days just LOVE inventing problems for things that are perfectly fine.

I'm not sure how kid-friendly a $100+ figure was in the first place.

Crunchyroll is not the only store affected by this. Other stores had to pull/cancel their orders for Angewomon as well because of the situation.

From what I gathered, it was because of Angewomon's chest size and maybe the pose the figure is in.

Jokes on them. The West has Cyber Sleuth. You can get your Angewomon fill there.

Yeah, this is just weird, I mean, c'mon, yeah, I know that the article mentions that they'll still bring the Takeru/Angemon figure bundle, but not Hikari/Angewomon, all because of Angewomon's thought of suggestive posing? (and bust size someone mentioned here.)

Seriously? There's other figures I've probably seen that are real more suggestive than this. And besides, Digimon being a series demographic for all. I doubt a loophole is to import it instead of shops from CR, and Rightstuf which are not taking orders due to this concern, which really isn't necessary.

Ugh...doesn't make any sense. >.>

Ya Digimon the show purely for kids. Easily the most kid friendly version of Digimon was the 3rd season Digimon Tamers. I mean everyone remembers the happy fun times of Jerry, Leomon, and Beezlemon. The good times those three had together were the most precious moments of that show. Also Jerry remembering all the good times she had with her mother and how Leomon reminded her of her mother the good kid friendly times.

And yet this was considered child friendly in the 90s and it's considered child friendly in Japan too.

What the fudge

IKR? Since when can kids afford this figure in the first place? It's meant for adult fans who grew up on the Digimon franchise.

THAT said, I can feel some annoyance for anyone that had actually pre-ordered from Crunchyroll store for this particular figure and didn't go to an alternate import site first.
