The Edit List
Blue Submarine #6

by Kyle Pope,

Thanks to Google's Archives I was able to find these. These are from the earlier days of Toonami's anime experience where the editing was a little more paranoid (not that things have improved all that much on Toonami). For a series depicting a genocidal war CN did their best to conceal the fact that massive casualities had been inflicted since Zorndyke first moved against humanity. This series seems to have gone into hiding on Toonami in favor of the longer and more benign shows in their library. Should it turn up again you'll now know what you will be missing.

4. Scene of Hayami lighting a cigarette on the roof cut.

5. Cigarette removed from Hayami's roof scenes. Nonetheless the smoke remains. Go figure.
