Fabulous mecha anime Star Driver has become the target of utterly draconian and shameless censorship it seems, with the crude mutilation of the title not even bothering to resort to the figurative fig leaf of foreshadowing and plot construction.
Some complain that it is all but impossible to understand what is going on thanks to this overzealous censorship, as any explanatory dialogue or even helpful noises have been removed too.
As you can see above and below, viewers in some areas are treated to mysterious plot twists and unexplainable incidents, amongst other efforts at DVD sales promotion. The complex storylines and imagery promised were completely expunged in favour of unitelligable actions by the characters, gratioitous fanservice for male and female audiences, but none of the genre-altering plot which is the major premise of the title.
Those not intent on waiting for the DVDs for the unedited version of the plot will have to make due with what they’re given, as Star Driver’s intentions are not clear on any station it’s being broadcasted on.
