    Okay, out of context that english panel doesn't make any sense. Gotcha? The poke-boobs made sense. Her randomly screaming gotcha? not so much.

    Evil Figment (7:59:44 PM): Ryuu, however shakily you started, I've got to hand it to you that you earned my respect the hard way.

    They rewrote the dialogue to match the edit, pretty much. Instead they have Green insult Sabrina's fashion sense (meow!) which makes her "lose her psychic focus" or something... and Green has huge boobs in the page before that for what seems like basically no reason.

    Not bad, considering what they had to work with (assuming they had to take the Poké-boobs out), although maybe I only like it because I'm a girl so I find Green's comments about how unfashionable Sabrina is quite catty and kind of funny XD

    Oh my God!!O_o What the hell happened to her chest?? It looks like it's sagging to the ground!!

    I was hoping that the edit would look decent, and I was contemplating on maybe buying it anyway despite the censorship, as I don't have much money, and I'm jobless... But my lord...

    That is one terrible censorship job...

    Why couldn't they hire a real artist to make the edit? Would something along the lines of this be too difficult for a professional?



    And here I am, some unpaid, jobless 19-year old and I've done a better job than that editor... Someone got paid for this people!!

    How did they handle the scene where she was running off with the badge while holding her torn dress?

    Thanks for the scans. yeah, it looks horrible and the rewrite didn't make much sense either.

    I mean what did they do with her arm that was holding up her torn shirt? Was it still "holding it up," or did they completely redraw it?

    And did they redraw every single panel with her shirt torn/tied around her neck?

    They edited it so that her dress wasn't torn and her arm is just sort of hanging around where she would be normally holding up her dress.

    That's realllllly interesting, then. I gotta wonder - Pokémon was even "kiddier" back then, so why would they include it then, but not now? You'd think manga would be MORE liberal with stuff like this ten years down the road, not less...

    Completely redrawn for the rest of the book. At least they were consistent.

    That's hardly the case... Especially when Dragon Ball is now considered "child pornography"...

    America is heading backwards as a society...-_-'

    Haha, I live in Canada, apparently we're more liberal in general, but still. :P

    I hate how people think any nudity is sexual in nature. That baffles me. In this day and age, Calvin wouldn't have been able to put Hobbes in the bathtub any more, because that leaves his tush exposed.

    This makes me really glad I own the original VIZ printings. If I didn't, I'd probably still buy this, but without knowing about the original source I know I'd be confused at that scene. Censoring it is only going to draw more attention to Green's bouncing chest on the previous page, and completely ruins the WTF-awesomeness of her Pokémon appearing.

    What does Sabrina say in the panel after the main censored one? Where in the original VIZ manga, she says, "What!? PokéBalls on her chest!?" It's probably something lame like just "What!?", but I'm curious if they tried to explain it.

    I just checked it. No, they don`t explain it. Sabrina`s next line is just "Lost my focus when she dissed me!".
    Kind of disappointing, I just wondering if they gonna edit this manga more in the future...
    And anyone knows, if they gonna translate it after volume 7?
    [If you are wondering where I get this manga in Finland, our local "Manga-shop" called "Fantasiapelit" [Fantasy Games] which sells English language manga sells it.]

    No word on yes or no yet, but I hope they do. It'll come out conveniently short after the English release of HGSS if they do...

    You guys know how I'm all against censoring, right? Well...while I do think it's lame that the breasts part got censored, I disagree with the people who said the censoring looks "bad" and "unprofessional."

    I happen to think the censoring looks quite convincing, actually.

    I agree... I would've left that scene alone, but what I think Viz did was really well. The biggest issue I have is...

    Censoring it is only going to draw more attention to Green's bouncing chest on the previous page, and completely ruins the WTF-awesomeness of her Pokémon appearing.
    I wish that they went on ahead to edit that too, in order to be thorough. Either that or leave both scenes alone. And if they had to edit one or the other, I would've edited the earlier scene.
