The removed bath scenes are actually dubbed though in our game client and can be played in english on the japanese version. They should be here as well.
They should not. Those scenes are essentially making sexual harrassment a joke. They are embarrassing and should have been removed (which they have been). They shouldn't exist on the Japanese servers either, but it's more """acceptable""" there.
It's a very common trope in Japanaese media and is something they really need to grow out of. Just because it exists doesn't mean it's acceptable; the game being rated M doesn't excuse this either.
Wow, the first argument I consider valid for something censored here (that' I've seen, there could be more I missed). It's true sexual harassment is bad, but I still feel these scenes have the right to exist even if they are offensive. I found them entertaining, and some others do as well (well the later bath scenes, I forgot what happened in the first one). I don't take many things seriously which is why these scenes don't bother me. I haven't put a great deal of thought with what the characters actually do in these scenes. They are fictional anime characters doing fictional anime things. For example The Boondocks is very offensive (though well more thought out than pso2). I enjoy that show, and many others do and I don't think that makes those who enjoy it makes them/me bad people.
I didn't think much of the scene in jp when it comes to offensiveness when it was released there, and I feel the same now. I really just want the same game jp has.
