マニアック、ボカシの件。Dread Centralさんに取りあげてもらった!

Thanks so much!

先に書いた英文記事『On EIRIN's Terrible Censorship of Franck Khalfoun's "Maniac"』をDread Centralさんに取り上げて頂きました。


Dread Central - Maniac Censored in Japan to Attract Teen Audience?

Dear Uncle Creepy,

Thanks so much for your interest on this matter. It means a lot to us.

Here comes recent update.

The distributor finally revealed that they had altered (blurred, darkened) 6 scenes answering blogger's inquiry. The detail is explained here but it is Japanese. Let me explain. They answered like this.

The reason why they censored:

"Assuming that this movie cannot be categorized as just a horror genre and it has the aspect of bizzare kind of love story, we wanted to sell this movie toward more people, not only horror fans, those who love Elijah Wood and The Lord of the Rings. Therefore we thought R15 is the most appropriate decision."

That's what they say. There're still a lot of unknowns.

Above is based on a the blogger's entry who inquired the distibutor. They haven't made any statement at their website yet.

To the distributor. I tried to be fair to translate Namaniku's article into English but if you feel something wrong with my translation, please annouce your statement by yourself in English at your official site. That's the best I guess.

配給さんへ。私はフェアな視点でナマニクさんの記事の翻訳を書いたつもりですが、もしニュアンスが異なると思われるのであれば、公式に英語の声明を発表してください。それがベストであると思われます。
