I should be really dumb, because I don't get what happened in the last one... But, about the censorship in itself, I don't know what to say, since I don't know what is the target public of those mangas.


Edit: After some minutes looking to the image, I finally got it (I think). xD

The target audience for the manga is children apparently it said that in the author notes of some Black and White Adventures volume.

I do not understand what's going on over there...

They edited the image since Sapphire put her nose into Zigzagoon butt :omg: and in the second image they removed the poop from Sapphire's nose :omg:

Yes children :yeahyeah: and that's why they censor when Norman wanted to kill Ruby or when the BW gym leaders are crucified (http://www.pokemon-trainer.com/threads/pokemon-special-censorship.595/ first post)

If you did not had told me, I probably would not not notice that... I mean, after re-look to the image, I noticed the "poop", but not that Sapphire had put her nose "that close". :wft:

Actually I noticed that Sapphire's nose was darker in the Japanese version but didn't understand it.

Next time I will be sure to write a comment next to the images with the changes XD
(but this was a fun game of "find the difference" roftl )

In the second one they removed a piece of clothes because the the bottom of the flight suit is "tight" :uhmm:

Yeah.... I assume the English versions of the manga tend to censor more things because the general public of Asia is somewhat less sensitive to what the US would consider to be mature. I'm pretty sure the Korean versions didn't censor any of these either.

I didn't know the Norman-Ruby scene was censored! That's even one of my favorite scenes in Pokémon Special xD

It's this page here (the original one from chapter 209):

You can see that Norman throw away Ruby while in the VIZ version a bolt of lightning strike and Norman accidentally lose his grip on Ruby's shirt...
