Prison School DVD release?



  • Hello, I know you guys are still working on finishing up dubbing the last episodes of Prison School, but is there any plan in the works to release a dvd or Blu-Ray of the series after the dubs are all finished? – Preferably in a less censored format =)

    Also, I saw there were some complaints from other members on the topic of script-writing and personal politics and opinions on certain episodes of this show. I just wanted to mention there are still those of us who truly appreciate what you guys do and aren't so sensitive as to try to inflict our own opinions upon the products that you decide to release to the world. Keep up the great work guys.



  • there will be a blu ray and or dvd 100%. In the ANN Cast they said that if they broadcast dub a series they will have a home release for it. Of course the DVD/ blu ray will come out in ~1 year. My guess it will be partially uncensored, I don't see funimation selling a show with a vagina shown in it. They will definitely have uncensored language though because they censored the language by cutting the words, meaning that the actors said the full swear word so they will use that for the final version.



  • FUN FACT: It is actually illegal to show genitals, whether female or male, in any form of media in the country of Japan. Even their porn has to be pixelated to be legal to sell within the country, and only when it is exported to other countries is it allowed to be shown completely uncensored. Hence, why there has been a massive shortage of hentai being licensed in the past few years, as many Japanese have been reverse-importing our uncensored releases back to their country, which is highly illegal and can technically be considered "contraband".

    So yes, Meiko's coochie shots will definitely stay well hidden in the shadows, but any and all boobs, butts, & bad words will be completely uncensored on the home video release, rest assured. :)



  • lol awesome. I figured it would still stay censored, I'm just happy to hear there will be a home release at some point, and that it will be less censored than the original airings. I like my anime like my coffee, full of boobs, butts and cuss words.

    Thanks for the info!

    i'm actually watching the uncensored episodes of the dub right now (illegally whatever i'm poor) anyway it's weird there are boobs and cussing in the first 6 episodes but then the censoring of the cuss words were still there at least for episode 6 and 7 and i checked i was definitely still watching the show uncensored so i guess it's completely uncensored for the for first six episodes then there is just boobs in the last 6 but cussing is still censored? i don't know seems weird but that is what seems is going on.



  • They probably just stuck the dub dialogue over the uncut Japanese episodes. I believe the last few episodes have not been released uncut yet even in Japan. I doubt these are the official Funimation final cut versions.



  • well looks l like up to episode 8 has an uncensored version not sure about 9-12 but i don't know it's not very clear you know leaks and shit.

    Yeah that is one that someone put the English audio on Japanese blurays as for censorship everything you see in the Japanese bluray should also be in funimation's home video release. As for the words I would imagine those would be uncensored as well Because it wouldn't make sense to show tons of anime tiddies, butts and vulva and not allow the cuss words. (which I don't know why funi decided to start censoring them half way through in the first place.)

    lol man it sucks to be a dub watcher you have to do so much waiting XD, i mean at least with this anime we didn't have to wait but seeing how it was censored a lot in a way we still had to wait, i guess if there is a season 2 i should wait a year or a year and a half or something. it's kind of weird that japan released the show censored like what's up with all the censoring i got tokyo ghoul because japan doesn't really like violence but come on anime is basically know for being oversexualize characters and having some nudity it's weird they did that.i'm going to stop now i rambling

    And the TV versions are censored because the TV airings for certain shows are basically just ads for the uncensored DVD release.
