On Nov 21, a animated short was released by the Japan Animators Expo titled "ME!ME!ME!" which has gained quite a bit of attention online by anime & hentai fans alike, gaining popularity for both its sexual visuals as well as its complete randomness & guro (even though it's symbolic if you watch and think about it closely).

Fans of the old anime classic "Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon" were ecstatic to learn that their favorite sailor scouts were due to return for a reboot of the original anime series this year. They were later treated to good news that the airing time frame of this series was to be around the Summer this year. Well.....it turns out those fans wont be watching their favorite sailor scouts "fighting evil by moonlight" at the original time frame they thought.
It wasn't much of a surprise since last month as to what Kyoto Animation's new series was going to be, especially since they showed that "Swimming" trailer that caused a lot of commotion from loyal KyoAni fans who fancy their moeblod series like "K-On!" or was expecting something more serious like a continuation of "Full Metal Panic".

The anime adapation of Maya Miyazaki's Gokujo ~Gokurakuin Joshikouryou Monogatari~ (roughly "Gokujo ~Tales from the Gokuraku Girls Dormitory") was supposed to premiere today during CTV's SKE48 no Sekai Seifuku Joshi ("SKE48's World Domination Girls"), but instead viewers were greeted with an apology (roughly translated below) from the censors:
"This is a round-about apology and explanation. CTV Program Censhorship (Somewhere in Japan)"
"Sorry, we can't broadcast Gokujo episode 1!!"
"Next week we plan to start from episode 2 (Note this is just a plan)."
So episode two might be shown next week? The official website has the synopsis of what was missed today, "Who's the one wearing no panties!?" Apparently Ai finds a pair of old lady undies. This, while Aya comes to the unfortunate realization that she's not wearing any underwear! She lures Konatsu into the health room and forcibly steals her panties. A chase ensues, but meanwhile Aya is spreading the rumor that the lame-o underwear Ai found belong to Konatsu...
This was all deemed so incredibly inappropriate it couldn't be shown at all. Next week's episode about a persistent case of the hiccups plaguing Aya seems like it should get a pass, but we'll have to wait and see.
Japanese TV is so screwed beyond all recognition if mild stuff like this is too much for television but stuff with 3DPD actors get through the censors without a hitch, if you ask me.
