So I read Viz’s Shakugan no Shana light novel and manga today…

Sad Shana

So the light novel was still readable, the translation was hopefully and surely solid, and it was highly enjoyable to read the source material bound between real covers without looking in the dictionary every five minutes. The only problems are… the annoyingly large text don’t really care and the unneeded cropping of two of the illustrations.

Fawk, I say. FAWK. I honestly see nothing to censor. Are Shana’s panties really that detailed and err… “arousing” for it to be kept in for a teenaged audience? I don’t even think that’s bad for little kids Or is it that Yuji is sleeping in bed with her? Either way, he’s still sleeping in bed with her. (:

I remember the days where Viz would keep in Goku’s wee-wee for all to see in their early editions of the Dragon Ball manga… they really went censorship crazy since then.

This is the only bull I care about. Aside from this and the large text, it’s all fine.

  1. Just as a sidenote, they have erased like 3 full screen images of shana. So, it legal to say that they striped the novel 3 entire pages!
