Two minutes and 49 seconds cut for sexual imagery.

The BBFC has confirmed that the series Ikki Tousen: Dragon Destiny has been censored for sexual imagery. The cuts amount to two minutes and 49 seconds. The series is being released by MVM; the censored version will be rated 18.

According to the BBFC, the cuts were "required to DVD extras... to remove sight of an animated naked child presented in a sexualised manner, within a sexualised context, and which has the potential to encourage a sexual interest in children."

The cuts were made to one of the mini-episodes, called "Seito's Monster Boobs." Only 22 seconds of the episode were permitted by the BBFC.

Other high-profile BBFC cuts in recent years have been to Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 (a one-second cut for sexual imagery - details) and to Paranoia Agent (an eighty-second cut for a scene depicting an attempted child suicide - details).

According to MVM's facebook page, Ikki Tousen: Dragon Destiny is expected to be released in October.
