I haven't had to list this many edits since the early days of Toonami. Certainly brings back memories. Who would have thought Nadesico would have this much to edit. I would have thought it was a rather benign series by US TV standards. Certainly a safer series to air than Evangelion. I certainly have a better appreciation for Adult Swim.
