The fate of numerous television productions has always passed through the hands of licensors who impose different levels of censorship. This phenomenon has had a major impact on the West, especially our country, in recent years, and has also changed some product scenes for a young audience, such as: Pokémon exploration.

Just a few days ago, a fan had uncovered a complaint against Team Rocket, which had the opportunity to discuss the phenomenon of the crippling of anime scenes with the American community. In any case, this phenomenon has always hit Japan itself hard and sparked so much controversy that not all of them are completely extinct to this day. In fact, many time windows have forced many animation studios to make substantial changes to numerous productions, and to alter more violent titles like Bleach.

Recently, an enthusiast accidentally discovered a change staff had made to theEpisode 4 of Pokémon Expeditions for its western variant. As you can see at the bottom of the news A character's mustache has been completely removed because of its commonality with those of Hitler. A detail that has gone unnoticed by most, but again sets the hard fist of the West on all those details that are considered malicious to the relevant public.

And you, what do you think of this censorship? As usual, please let us know with a comment below.
