The Blur

Postby animegoth666 » September 3rd, 2007, 6:54 am

You've probably heard all this before maybe? but I think the bluring on this site could be done better, of course thats if it's possible to do.
After watching the anime series Elfen Lied I came to notice the bluring wasn't just over the parts that needed to be blured but over the whole entire scene.
I think the blur should be just put on the parts that need to be blured and not over everything, it was really hard to make out what the other characters where doing at the time, and kinda ruined it >.>
If you could just blur some parts of the scene, then this way you would be able to have more of a range of animes on your site, without losing any of the stoyline or scenes to a full out blur ^_^

Thankyou for reading.

I agree. I watched like, the first three episodes and I remember the first one, pretty much every 4 seconds there was a blurred scene.......so it was kinda hard to see........

I know I may be flamed for this or something but frankly just don't blur it its part of the anime and shouldn't be edited... It has an age viewing label to it anyway. :\ If your worried about younger viewers watching it then simply make a age filter or something making it so they can't watch that episode or black bar parts. I mean most the time the people paying to watch anime are someone who is old enough to have a debit card or bank account since we have to pay to be a member to watch and for those younger viewers who have their parents paying, theres still that age filter idea I was talking about.

While I don't disagree, it will never happen. The countless times that I've suggested to remove the blur has always been in vain. I recommend using an alternate site for "mature" themed anime with nudity. There are quite a few free sites around that you could use as an alternate site when viewing an anime that AC has blurred.

I already do go to other sites for my anime I just added this one to my collection of sites. Now I saw this coming with people saying that it just won't happen... If people are just going to go to other sites won't that just make this one lose members? I mean the brats actually "looking" for nudity will simply just go to another site anyway so why torture the current members on this site? If its just worring about being sued or something from parents then have an age agreement discloser. If a kid gets caught by his parents they can't do squat because 1 the kid lied and 2 its the parents job to make sure what their kids are getting into. Or at lest thats how I think it works? I see other sites with this kind of thing anyway... Could be wrong.

But I'm not going to argue with mods and the creators of this site so I shall just close that topic. Just trying to give ideas on the subject, if you still don't want to do the age filter/agreement thing then I would suggest just using black bars to cover things up instead of blurring the whole screen this will still leave the show some what viewable and not annoying.

Anyway this is all my 2 cents and I'm done for now, sorry to back people into a corner on this site. Its up to you guys what you do so I'll leave it at that.

If you liked Please Teacher you should watch Please Twins same creator but different main characters. You still see some of the characters from Please Teacher to. :)

Actually, none of that really has much to do with it. To put it plainly; Bassam(The admin of AC) just chooses to blur the material. It's religion related, which is why trying to refute the blurring policy will just be in vain. Also, the way Bassam blurrs the nude imagery takes far less time than any other method, so I doubt that will change any time soon, either.

Religion related??? Don't see how that effects things... but I have no problem with the censoring was just throwing out ideas.

Anyway I can see how that takes less time but he could at lest take a little bit more time with making the blur smaller and only on the parts that need to be covered up. That way not all the content is hard to make out, we do pay money after all how much longer will it take to simply make a blur smaller on areas that need it? Not much time if you ask me and if he just doesn't have the time how many other people does he have to help him or is this website an only man show with just him doing everything?

Well anyhow I don't expect changes right away but perhaps in the future would be nice? But thats all up to him, I plan to just deal with how things are it doesn't bother me much. But it never hurts to voice your opinions now and then to see if it will make a difference, so I'll just sit back and enjoy watching anime for now. :)

It is against Bassams religion to aid others in viewing nudity. Whether or not they consent to it has no relevance.

There are several different methods used to censor media, but each method requires a different source. While it is possible to make the blur smaller and less noticable it would take far more time then you may think. Also, currently Bassam(and on occasion, Jenna) uploads and censors all nudity related content.

That's understandable, but it is the responsibility of each individual member to scout and ask questions regarding the site before actually subscribing to AC's streaming media.

As I've stated before, Bassam will never abstain from censoring nude content; however, one day he may change the method used to censor it.

You know.. I've been gone awhile... longer then I had ever wanted to be... but that isn't the point. The point here is... every one needs to stop complaining. Jenna and Bassam take the time out of the lives to do this for us, with that help of all the mods, so why complain? If it wasn't for these people, we wouldn't have something like AC to begin with. If you are that pent up over the nudity being blurred out... Go and buy the dvd's! There are members here that are only like 12 and 13... and by useing the blurring, Jenna and Bassam can allow anyone who wants to watch anime to watch it, and also it makes it possible to keep the cost at only 5$ a month, which is very good compared to most sites, so just lay off them ok... I may be the only one who thinks this... but Jenna and Bassam are doing a great job... and should be given thanks for what they do... and not have to listens to people complain over stupid stuff....
In this body,Where I’ve found, Blood and bones,Will keep me bound. Freedom comes, With heavy toll, Darkness takes, What light stole. Here I sleep, In shadow realm, Under eyes, And under helm, Once to roam, And now to mourn, The Light I shed The shadows scorn.
