    The first time I encountered censor blurring, that was all for me.

      This is Standard Operating Procedure in Japan, per Japanese law, for both softcore (with explicit views below the belt) and hardcore films. Done via optical fogging or digital pixelation. Which is why I’m pretty sure that Oshima shot “In the Realm of the Senses” outside of Japan. (Just saw on IMDB that Wakamatsu had worked on the script for that film,, which I wasn’t previously aware of, but in retrospect it makes a certain sense.) Curiously, there is abundant explicit and uncut Japanese hardcore, from quite a few specialty studious, but it is earmarked for export only.
