While the overly-sexual nature turns me away from spending money on this, I feel the censorship is a load of crap. NISA got away with putting CFW Trick in Neptunia MK-II with only an M rating. Considering that Trick is the epitome of things that are jokes in Japan but extremely poor subjects to even (and arguably, especially) joke about in the US, I doubt any of the censored monsters have outfits that are ban-worthy for an M game.

"Some trap cards shouldn't be activated depending on who you're standing around"

That sounds really really wrong.

Anyway, it's not illegal to TELL of pedo stuff I don't think, but it IS illegal to show pedo stuff!

Why censor things of characters that look underage when Senran Kagura got localized uncensored and Mirai falls right into loli territory, makes no sense

Edit: Also, Senran Kagura got a freaking T rating despite being overly-sexual and having the sexualized loli-type girl, making this censorship more confusing especially for an M rated game

Oh, so it's because most of them are lolis. That's unfortunate, in multiple ways. That said, I don't see any problems with the skeleton, brownie, tengu, kracken, death scorpion, cockatrice, and mandragora. It could be argued that the mau shibau (San Andreas got away with less clothing in the non-Hot Coffee version), goblin, phantom, and vampire wouldn't make an AO rating either. The others (especially the corpse plant)? Not even I would allow them.

That said...are these the images allowed, or are the banned ones "worse" than these?

Two things. First off, this game is for the Vita and was censored to avoid an AO rating by the ESRB, which would prevent it from being sold on anything outside of the PC.

Second, how was Fire Emblem censored?

Oh, the bit about Tharja's bikini scene being covered by a cloth (which, arguably, makes her look like she's had a mishap with the thing) and the incident involving her breasts. I don't see that as a big deal, but whatever skins your sheep.

its all beside the point though, i think when they make these games its like an art form and when they censor them its like censoring art
