Kodansha’s official YouTube channel uploaded a preview clip of Kimi no Iru Machi’s limited edition optical media release – yet immediately, the romance harem PV was taken down for “nudity or sexual content”.
Thankfully, stills from the PV managed to be procured before the video was taken down – and if there’s one aspect which is sure to bother one most about this, it is neither that the video was removed, nor that it contains uncensored oppai, but that it seems the OVA of Kimi no Iru Machi is going to go down a path of the most irritating of all harem routes. The weak male lead plays around with all the females – and in the end, he returns to a single one and acts devout.
This course of action is merely no more than rage inducingly despicable. To see the extent of how weak, disloyal, and easily influenced the main character is does naught but leave us uncaring of whether or not we witness the final episode of this two part OVA series – and that would be as this is certainly not the first tale of pushover male lead sex magnet being pulled towards all directions. And at that, it’s a concoction which always brings the same outcome of disappointment.
However, we’ll go ahead and wait to see how it plays out once the finale is released – ensuring that our ridicule of it will go fully justified.
Returning to another note of YouTube’s anti-erotic anime crusade, they’ve also eradicated the PV of Asa Made Jugyou Chu! from Media Factory’s own channel – leaving the site of the series slightly less interactive. A question raises as to whether or not these companies realized their content was inappropriate as per YouTube’s upload guidelines, as well as when exactly they plan on restoring the PVs in a non-infringing fashion – and finally, if perhaps Media Factory or Kodansha will find their YouTube accounts suspended one day for repeated rule breaking.
Incidentally, this video uploading conflict is more amusing in itself than the actual content it regards.
