Just a reminder that this is far and away the creepiest page in the manga…
You know, I actually can’t say. I take it all purely on a case-by-case basis.
To tell you the truth, there’s a big, loud, passionate part of me that hesitates to call what we see here in the series “censorship” to begin with. To me, censorship is about governments controlling the flow of information, stifling dissent, manipulating the people, and facilitating the violation of basic human rights. To use the same word for that and for this almost feels downright offensive.
When we talk about censorship in video games, what we’re almost always talking about is self-censorship — a developer deciding that a particular piece of its own content might not be appropriate for a given audience and changing or removing it accordingly. And that’s a completely different thing altogether. I like that. That’s a good thing. In my mind, that’s called “being responsible and accountable for the content you’re putting out into the world.”
That seems too much like excessive coddling, and I personally find such actions (basically treating the audience like we’re idiots) rather insulting.
In case anyone is confused by the quote, it’s from chapter 57 of the manga (download link)
And they really need to resolve the Demyx issue…
The Heroes of Light, ladies and gentlemen.
(I’m still fixing up the raws for this chapter, you’ll get them soon)
I don’t know who scribbled in that “thank you”, but if it was Sora, that’s actually really touching.
(AFAIK these journal comments [the Japanese written on the images] are only in the JP and FM versions and weren’t localised; if I’m wrong, correct me)
I wish something tragic happened to Axel and it made him a legit bad guy then in KH3 he could be a seperate main antagonist from MX
lay off the drugs man
I’m really starting to think I should just buy Shonen Gangan myself…
- Axel/Roxas farewell ;-;
- Sora goes into Final Form! (with a really neat Roxas w/Oathkeeper “afterimage”)
- Kairi and Pluto really hate Saix now
Quick teaser of the KH2 manga, chapter 57. I’ll scan the rest when I get home. (why can’t December come sooner ;-;)
And somehow I ended up ordering the May issue of Shonen Gangan alongside June’s >_> (as opposed to my intention of July’s… I’ll keep that mind next time)
We’re going to Axel and Roxas’s farewell - the saddest scene in the entire series - with an honest-to-god proper translation and English voicing
I’ve waited over seven years for this…
