Looks like scantily clad Asuna doesn't fly in Taiwan. The digital television network operated by China Television (CTV) opted to do bit of a touch up on Sword Art Online episode 10 to conform to local standards.

As people in the original article say, it seems even /more/ suggestive post-censoring.

Honestly, while I felt the second arc (ALO) had a lot of fan-service, this moment felt natural and I didn't feel it was fan-servicey at all.

Oh well.

The second arc was kinda bad till the end. 1st arc was so awesome...and I know they rushed it...they should just do a reboot doing everything from the light novel.

TheHergula896d ago

Not very surprised... but saddened.

krazykombatant896d ago

First arc was awesome, but the 2nd with the incest underlying tones, or fan service, as its called I didn't feel the same level of intensity.

incest for who? cousins can marry and its no problem! and i challenge u to prove otherwise.

second, in japan and many other countries in the world they dont have any issues with cousins marriage!

its funny how u say incest like the whole world agrees with u.

deep_fried_bum_cake896d ago

It doesn't matter who agrees with him, it's incest, don't be stupid. The Japanese are really creepy that way.

@deep_fried

Technically its all incest since we all came from "Moses" lol. But second cousins arent always incest. My Dads aunt's daughter's daughter.....boom! hit that!

@ deep_fried_bum_cake

It is NOT incest. Not everyone follows Christianity and your culture is not the only right one. It does not makes someone creepy if they do not fit your cultural definitions. Your culture and lifestyle may seem creepy to others the same way.

Firstly, I'm not Christian, I don't care for religion, though I have been raised in a Christian society so that may have shaped my views just as yours have been shaped by yours.

Secondly, having sex with a close relative is just messed up. It's also widely accepted that inbreeding leads to an increased chance of birth defects in the resultant children. Though that chance decreases the further apart the relation, which is why you get some societies which accept it between second but not first cousins.

@deep

marrying someone far from relative could be good for genes mixing, BUT there is no evidence that marrying FIRST cousin will cause any problems.

However, marrying a sick cousin will increase the chances of the kids having that problem, but it is the same if u marry someone who is not a relative and he/she is sick.

Conclusion, if u think marrying cousins is bad for YOU, thats your choice, but to say its is bad in general and for all people, then keep your fantasy opinions to your self!

Marriage and sex with cousins is only incest in Christianity. Christianity is not universal so love between cousins is not incest for everyone.

I personally didn't like the 2nd story arc at all for SOA, but to each their own I suppose.

All in all, it shouldn't really be censored, since there's no actual nudity in it, and censoring it just makes it even more suggestive than it really is; you're just fanning the flames at that point.
