I was sitting here at my computer, eating some CoCo Roos, and watching the fansub of Iriya no Sora. It looked like one of those animes that you'd see on the WB. You know, young students (around 14?), a kind of animation/style that screamed "kids can watch this," and suddenly, there were breasts! I was shocked! I mean, the main male character was told to open her shirt and inject something into this girl's heart, so when he ripped it open and the bra, too, I wasn't really expecting it. I was expecing the shirt to come open JUST far enough...But, no.

Is this just one of those weird little things that shows up sometimes, or is it normal? Are such films edited for US release? (Not the hentai stuff, lol.)

Ha, I had a similar experience watching the pilot of Stargate SG-1. Here I'm watching standard tv sci-fi and the big bad aliens are going to put a put a parasite in this woman so the draf her forward and rip her clothes and ... rather than cutting to back view shoulder height the camera pans back and there's full frontal nudity. For a moment I forgot I was in my TV DVD watching mode and thought I was in my B-movie boobie-watching mode. Now, I'm absolutely *never* going to complain about nudity in media (*never* I tells ya... *never* under any circumstance[1]...) but I have to admit this was totally and completely gratuitous (not that that's a bad thing... but it is an ... unnescessary thing).

[1] well, maybe if it's *my* nudity and I wasn't informed....

Heh, woozy...I didn't even know they had nudity in SG-1!

Ah...brings to mind yet another anime weirdness. I'm a fangirl...I admit it. So what's with all these animes/fansubs I've seen lately with the almost-exact same uniforms on a bunch of cute guys? Meine Leibe, Saint Beast, Kyo Kara Moah...

That was the weird thing. Apparantly it was originally made for ShowTime before the sci-fi channel picked it up. On sci-fi and syndicate the thirty second-scene is cropped to her head and shoulders which is exactly what you expect for sci-fi tv when they rip a womans clothes off. But in the showtime and dvd version the camera pans back to see her full body having the clothes ripped off and being dragged and lifted naked to a table. It was bizaarly incongruous to the entire show and utterly unnescessary as it looked (cinematically) fine cropped.

The episode of Stargate you are referring to is the pilot movie made for Showtime. So you get to see the captured Air Force woman and Daniel's wife. I've been watching the DVDs of SG-1 and there are no other nudity. They change a lot of things after a pilot. I really didn't like Sam be the over feminist she was in the pilot.

Well, it hasn't been released in the US yet. Many animes are heavily edited. There's nudity and sexual innuendo in Sialor Moon and Card Captor Sakura, for example. Most of the time the anime release companies will leave everything in the DVD releases. The content is pretty normal by Japanese standards.

Yeah, nudity isn't entirely taboo, I'd say... but more often than not, when it shows up in a kid's anime, there's less detail (i.e. no nipples), and it's usually someone not much older than the kids watching (say, young pre-teens at oldest, maybe?). Other target groups get special service, but as far as little kids go it's no big deal to see another little kid's naughty bits (as long as you don't stare!).
I imagine it would be edited, depending on what company picks it up (if any), certainly for the TV if not on the DVD (or if little indiscressions like that are common for the show, they may go with one edited and one uncut release...)

While watching your Region-1 DVDs, you might notice, once in a while, that the random objects conveinantly covering the naughty bits don't quite match the rest of the picture... yep, these people are supposed to be naked. It's only natural, you know.... I don't see what's the big deal :-)

If only there was someone around we could ask... A Japanese guy, with kids of his own maybe... Someone big and furry, you know? Too bad that there's nobody like that around.

.... I don't remember any nudity in Card Captor Sakura (some pseudo-sexual innuendo, yes... Tomoyo is a little forward (and very reserved at the same time), and Toya and Yukito.... and Eriol was giving some pretty funny looks towards Syaoran, too.... nothing really sexual...)
Some magical girls do have showy transformation sequences (Cutey Honey, and maybe the Sailor Scouts?), but with Sakura she just changed into the costumes Tomoyo made for her.

I know there was some more serious stuff in Sailor Moon, but the uncut DVDs went unavailable on me before I could ever watch them....

You know, I sometimes like CSI...but the whole forensic science dramas are starting to go overboard with that crap. I'm actually TURNING AWAY sometimes so I don't have to look.

Hahahaha! It's a very brief spate of nudity. Not worth a download unless you're interested in the story (note: it has UFO in the title).

ATM? At this moment?

Yeah. I've been following the manga of Fushigi Yugi. In the beginning they try and rape her and they life up her skirt a little and you see some very modest undies and it's like "ew!" But then in every eppisode thingy someone's like, "Ok, take off your clothes". "OK teehee" and she has like super lace black braw and those thingies that attatch to her tights. I was just like "Ug".

Right, but it was sooo unnescessary and didn't fit at all. Cute little body though. But *utterly* gratuitous.

Garters. LoL. I would say you shouldn't be reading such a thing, but I was checking out some explicit romances from the library at the age, so who am I to talk?

C'mon, Cos. It's not that ewwie. :P But I am surprised it's in there.

I'd like to make a short film in which people are naked and talking constantly about the fact that they are naked but you never see anyone below the neck.
