This was a letter i got from KineJapan mailing list today. If you are looking for some real good info about japanese censorship


Makino Mamoru's long-awaited Nihon eiga ken'etsushi (History of Japanese
Film Censorship) has finally been published. For a long time, the failure
to publish this manuscript has stood as a marker of the sorry state of
academic film research in Japan. It was actually scheduled to be
published more than a decade ago (the publisher even printed advertising
handbills), but the publisher backed out in fear that this "unexciting"
topic would not sell (something which symbolized how hard it was to
publish serious historical research on film).

But finally Pandora, a company which does both film distribution and
publishing, decided to pick up the book, in part as a statement against
the censorship that still continues today. Even so, it is only publishing
200 copies, and the price is quite high (22,000 yen).

The book is 700 pages long and only covers the period up to 1945. It is
first divided into five historical periods: 1) the early period of
censorship (1896-1916); 2) the period from the Tokyo film regulations
(1916-1925); 3) the period after the nationalization of film censorship
(1925-1931); 4) the period of censorship of sound films and new film
formats (1932-1938); 5) the period from the Film Law on (1939-1945). The
book concludes with a historical discussion of the bibliography on film
censorship and a 150 page appendix reprinting the full text of many of
the major laws concerning film regulation. As with much of Makino's work,
part of the value lies simply in his dedicated effort to make available
many of the documents and discourses about film before the war.

The price is a bit high for all but the most dedicated film scholars, but
I urge everyone to have their library purchase it. (If this becomes a
small success, maybe it won't take 10 years to publish serious work like
this again!)

The bibliographic information is as follows:

Makino Mamoru
Nihon eiga ken'etsushi
Tokyo: Pandora (hakko); Gendai Shokan (hatsubai), 2003.
ISBN 476847814X
Price: 22000 yen

Man I remember when I first bought some imported porn when I was trying to transition all my caucasion porn to asian porn I was sooooo pissed off to find a mosiac at first but they make up for it with microphones that seem to pick up everything and I actually like J-porn more than american porn because it dosent have a classic rock track dubbed on it. I like watching it at the love hotels too, that's coo, except when the girls i'm with explain that the videos on tv are all perver-style like 50year old kids hookin' up with 16yr olds, but i'm sure i'll be reppin' that one of these days. porn rules, best porn in the world Down the Hatch 3 starring Mei-yu, and don't buy Kobe Tai videos, vivid sucks.

Porn fiend,
Josh

Hey, I don't want to start up another "censorship" topic, but I would like to know about the censorship on music videos and just that. Do broadcasters blurr out blood, commercial products, exposed females, and profanity?

In the good ol days !

In the early seventies when I was in Japan, all Giajin Porn was colored out with a black magic marker by college students. I thought it strange that so much nudity could be shown on TV and yet cencored in a magazine. I also thought what an aawsum job it must be to color porn all day and get paid for it. Do they still color over certain body parts today ??

The whole point of porn is to see naked people, so mosaic kind of defeats the purpose... kind of like non-alcoholic beer.

Well, a quick survey of Kazaa shows that there is plenty of uncensored J-porn out there for those willing to search for it...

Plus, watching the non-mosaic versions has the added benefit of making you feel extremely well endowed! 😏

Ahem...

You can get uncensored pornography in Japan fairly easily. Go into a the store and ask the guy behind the counter for "-------------." There is a Japanese word for uncensored pornography, just ask, and ye shall recieve. Just don't ask me, I am not telling it here!
(coughs)
Don't ask me how I know, either!

In Mike John's Down the Hatch #3 he is with this hot asian girl named mei-yu and it's like, um, let's see how I can phrase this, here is the scene...

mouth

bum

bum

mouth again

bum

mike gives up on mei-yu's bum

mouth

... It's so funny, especially when Mei-yu's forehead hits the lens and mike apologizes for that (but not all the bum to mouthing)

Anyways it's the greatest video ever made and Diabolic Video should expect my demo tape sometime this year heh.

I always figured the mosaic was a cheap trick that Hentai artists did because a) it was free online and b) they didn't know how to draw genitalia too well. I always assumed. Maybe I'm right, I dunno.
