    I guess the caged bird will surely be censored too. It's not a spoiler.

    Actually, I don't think the caged bird sign on the Hyugga foreheads will be edited. In the anime, it's already edited to an 'X', not the buddhist sign for temp (which looks like a swastika). So I don't really see the problem with having the 'x' there.

    I was however expecting the cross being edited out. On another note, this is a complaint, which should belong in the complaint thread.

    well, it's kind of silly, does every cross have to be related to christianity on US tv?
    also, I think it's ok to complain outside the complaints thread, which is really a bashing thread.

    edit: for clarification, this thread is just for the topic of the cross censorship

    anime companies want to cover there butts in this kind of situation , because they don?t want to people to think naruto is in any way downplaying or tarnishing the sacrifice Christ made in the Christian religion.. and in Japan only a small percentage of the population is Christian so they can get away with it with out offending anyone.

    I can't believe you expected them to leave it alone.

    I agree with that. But I definately understand the cross censorship. I sorta wish I saw the episode now.

    When that fishman guy was being tortured and they cut his arms off I think. Was there not a cross there?

    They like crucified Inari's step-dad, which I'd probably rather have edited anyway. XD

    When that guy Inari loved was tortured by Gato, he was tied to a cross before they executed him.

    In the animeit was edited so that he had his arms crushed by these 2 big guys. In the manga his arms were just cut off:

    Wait, did they edit out the cross or cut the scene altogether?

    *imagines Kaiza flotting with no arms*

    If they cut the scene altogether then I'd say it was more due to the fact that Kaiza was mutilated.

    Oh. FFS, of course they did. The guy has no damn arms. :huh

    That's almost as bad as Sagara Sozo's head on a post in Rurouni Kenshin.

    Did you read the manga? Because the anime toned it down - in the manga, one page he's alive, you turn it, and KAPOW, full-page splash of this (hot) dude's severed head. A total mind-fuck.

    Er, on topic, I don't blame them for cutting that scene.

    I've only read the first six or so volumes of the manga, because I can't afford them all. But I did see it in the anime. Is there a place to download the chapters? :scry

    Yeah, it would have to be rated R to show something like that in all of it's graphicness, or at least rated PG-13 in theaters, but on TV like this, it could probably fly by if it was rated TV-14 as I've seen an awful lot of gore in the FMA dub. Not to mention the DVD's. When one of the characters died, it showed brains coming out of his orifices. (Is "orifices" plural of "orifice"?)

    well, i thought in the anime inari's dad had blue "deadish arms". Anyway, I guess I could have seen that part being cut out, but the excuse that it's downplaying christianity, well it happens alot.
    There's another scene later on involving kakashi that will have to be edited too , but i always thought it would.

    The manga - Arms cut off.

    The anime - arms Crushed

    The editted anime - Crossbar editted off of cross, arms hanging limp at Kaiza's side.

    that's a spoiler sharingan, u might want to edit that b4 you get eggs thrown at you :O
    Anyway, your right Manethren, the arms were cut off in the manga. The violent ending of Kaiza was really traumatic when i watched in the uncensored anime, i thought it wasn't as "gripping" with the censorship

    Jesus, you all just reminded me how much I need to read the Kenshin manga. Stupid filler ark made me lose all interest and damn OAVs made me cry myself to sleep.
    ...
    ANYWAY! Soccer-moms and bible-thumpers would have flipped out. CN doesnt want to deal with them. I don't blame anyone. @_@

    Boondocks is on Adult Swim. Naruto is on Cartoonnetwork, the target audience is different. I'm catholic and I wouldn't have cared.(although I’m possitive someone would have made a fuss.) I've read the manga also and a religious reference didn't even come to mind.
