    I don't believe in censorship of any visual media at all, and am downright hateful towards those that advocate for artistic censorship (sadly, Japan is one of the only bastions of artistic freedom in the world atp).
    Vocal/Written censorship though is a bit more complex and not something I can give quite such a blanket statement towards.

    The main problem with censorship, and why it's not largely accepted, is that it seems to be/is mostly random. It is therefor controversial by nature. And it will remain like that until there's some actual bullet proof evidence that exposure to media of violent/sexual/... nature actually has any effect whatsoever on young people.

    Let's say for example that it's 100% sure that playing pantsu games as a minor leads to people becoming psychopaths or pedobears, there will be little debate anymore about whether we should allow such games in our society or not. It would probably become prohibited too to even produce that type of games anymore.

    But as it is now you'll have those people who'd argue that it's better to be safe than sorry and "keep as much filth away from our children" and those who tend to be more liberal about it. And frankly, I'm thinking it's always going to be that way. I don't believe any causal relations between consumption of media and socially unacceptable behaviour will ever be found. If anything, they'll sooner run into evidence that some people are predisposed to become psychos, and that whatever they look at or play isn't going to make any difference.

    So what will become censored and what won't will likely always be relative to what is socially acceptable in the contemporary age and society. As it stands now, if you want to play uncensored pantsu games, your "problem" isn't going to be solved by moving to Japan. People out there are not going to cheer for you when they see you play that type of games on public transport. Quite the opposite, most likely.

    Funny, when I change just one word, the statement's about you all of a sudden.

    That doesn't sound like Japan at all.

    The Black Bars in Japan are almost a joke compared to the outright 'book burning' level of censorship found in many other countries.

    ESRB are hypocrites! Rebirth 2's cover art has the girls ass crack exposed no problem, T rating and all. Unfortunate the cover had to be censored.
