【パンチラ】 NHK Kansai: S/mileage's panchira will not be transmited :P

"Happy Music". Nihon TV. (17-07-2010). :P

"Ahoyanen! Sukiyanen!". NHK Kansai. (27-07-2010). :P

Immerse in a new wave of moral restitution, caused by United States of America's media criticism, Japan media is handling with care the transmission of sexual related contents that involve children and youngsters below 18 years of age. :P

This "political correctness" is not new. But it's interesting to note what kind of contents have been censored, now, by the Japanese media. :P

The case of the transmission of S/mileage's "Ganbaranakutemo ee nende!!" live performance in "Happy Music" by Nihon TV, and the intense debate that sprouted into the wota community because S/mileage's panchira, is interesting because demonstrates that, for some Japanese people, showing girls' underpants on TV is unappropriated. :P

The truth is that S/milege's underpants are not "real" underpants, and, moreover, S-mileage's genitals or crotches are not shown in this kind of visual representation. :P

Maybe, S/mileage's Japanese hard-core fans have been protested intensely since the transmission of "Happy Music" by Nihon TV, and NHK Kansai decided not to broadcast S/mileage's panchira after all. :P

But, as Hello! Wota has well documented, panchira is just one tradition more from the Japanese Idol culture that must be preserved for the sake of all the real Idol otaku. :P
