Hilarious, but only a matter of time to wait on those BDs, so this isn't such a big deal. Was this rebroadcast at least from that HD telecine, because those screens look great.

I feel like this is so blatant that it isn't even offensive. Like, it doesn't try to hide the fact that it's censorship, or that it has to be done to get the execs to air it on TV, they just slap the bars on and go, "haha yeah, that's what we're doing".

We can see the Matsuno brothers on Osomatsu-san naked, but not the girls on the 30th anniversary Iczer 1 broadcast!?

I've never heard of this series before. Is it worth checking out?

I haven't seen an example of horribad censorship than Terraformars broadcast.

I have a feeling if the supporters of the nanny state have there way, by the time the 2020 Olympics comes around you won't even be able to broadcast an anime girl in a bikini.

This certainly is trying to compete for lamest censorship of the year.

Yare yare daze, this is worse than censoring a teen smoking by shadowing out his mouth.

Well... I have to give credit to the broadcasters for not hiding the fact that they were blatantly censoring the show. At least the viewers can enjoy the show uncensored and in HD when it's out on home video. Smile

If you don't mind some mild yuri and 80's OVA gore, it's a decently fun sci-fi action title.

As OVAs go, It's all right. It's full of 80s low budget cheese with the heavy amounts of nudity, violence and girl-on-girl action.

Unwatchable, whoever thought this was a good idea to put a super explicit OVA on TV knowing that it will be censored to death in the modern age needs to get fired.

You know what the funniest thing is? The thumbnail for this article could make someone think the image didn't load all the way. XD

I can see someone on their last day on the job, all worn-out from it, after yet another fight with the management, just saying, "You know what? It ain't even worth it anymore. Screw this." Laughing
