Why did it take so long?



  • Does anyone know why it took Funimation so long to make season 3 of highschool dxd to get full nudity? It used to have floating DXD symbols over boobs and such and that I hated plus no subtitles until late? Is this something Funimation does or is some kind of timed limit on showing nudity on certain shows?



  • I can only speculate, but they may have to wait for the home release before they put uncensored episodes up. 12-18 months is usually how long it takes for the North American home release. At the very least, they would need the uncensored version to begin with, and that would depend on when (and if) they get it from the Japanese studio.

    For any simulcast/simuldub, Funimation is only going to have whatever version that was broadcasted in Japan. Censorship of this nature was inserted by the original animation studio in order to meet television broadcasting standards.

    And as @korrailli stated, the uncut version won't be available in the West until after it has already been fully released in Japan.
