The movie of the popular franchise Sword Art Online titled «Sword Art Online: Progressive – Kuraki Yuuyami no Scherzo» (Sword Art Online the Movie -Progressive- Scherzo of Deep Night) released on Crunchyroll has caught the attention of fans who have highlighted that it is a censored version as opposed to the theatrical version and Blue-Ray/DVD.
Especially in a scene starring asuna yuki where he has a quiet bath, was unnecessarily censored with some zooms and reframes. And it is that in case the scene does not show something relevant to this character physically, but even so this has not gone down well for some. the youtuber Lucas–LKP shows us a sequence of images comparing the version of crunchyroll and the version Blue-Ray/DVD which was shared on social networks thanks to many fans.
Here are some comments:
- The truth is that I was going to watch it legally on streaming, but now I will buy the blu-ray, assuming that it really is not censored
- It is literally a very unnecessary censorship. It was already censored in theaters and you can’t see anything
- Well, at least it’s decently censored that the ecchi anime that came out in the previous season covering my screen with black spots
- What the hell! This is something very radical in a scene where Asuna can’t be seen hahahahaha
- How could Crunchroll allow this? They should have censored the feet too
- That Sword Art Online censorship will be like: Left: grab a rice ball, Right: grab a jelly-filled donut
- Well at least those with foot fetishes get something
