Nope, not yet. I doubt anyone will pay it much attention, its far better for nerdrage to believe the rumours.

Still doesn't make any sense why Geass was cut. First they give a list of all the reasons they would cut something, yet later on they talk about this "context" when defending stuff they didn't cut. Meh, fed up caring. Bring on boxset 2 :D.

I like how the interview starts with the answers to your questions being given as full as they can; then they get a bit wary with one word answers; then we get a "must defend" wall of text; a bit of cooldown where every answer is "context"; before ending on a word one answer. It's like they invite you in for tea, start to regret it, get a bit pissed, start to push you out the door, before closing it gently behind you and hearing the lock click.

lulwut Tony the Tiger. Must have been a slow day.

They have to tow the company line, I wasn't really expecting much more. Plus some of the questions were a bit direct. Near enough 'please justify why you exist'.

Someone must have been having an off day when they viewed code geass. What is interesting is that Andrew says they are using the US TV master for that ep now which had the very same cut. Go figure.

Interesting article.:book: Good to know about the reasoning behind any possible cuts which might take place, I was wondering about that. Mostly because despite the fact that Ireland being a separate country (with IFCO being our equivalent of the BBFC) I'll highly doubt that MVM or Manga or whoever, will bother make an Irish specific uncut version that's somehow different to the British one. Plus importing dvds from the UK is a hell of a lot cheaper, so I'll be mostly watching stuff without the blue IFCO sticker on it anyway.

It is a valid point you tried to make -
If anime is so costly here, fans will get it via other means and so regulation won't be as effective.
Don't think they want to listen though.

It isn't really their problem to be honest. They are there to ensure that our minds aren't warped >.< , HMRC are there to stop "inappropriate" material coming in. As if they'd have a chance to process the millions of parcels coming in everyday.

Its not that they don't want to listen, its that they can't. The charging is set down in law. I was hoping to get an opinion from them.
