    Exclamation Kamihime Project R has had rape content censored in the Nutaku release

    Edit: Full write-up now available on my blog:
    Nutaku covertly censored dialogues to make rape scenes in free-to-play ero-RPG Kamihime Project R seem consensual, reneging on earlier promises.
    Rape scenes censored in Nutaku's Kamihime Project R



    Catalogue of censored H-scenes (if you spot a censored scene that isn't in this list, notify me with a post in this thread):
    Exclusive/Gatcha:
    Belphegor scene 1
    Indra (tentacle scene)
    Cronus opening scene, scene 2
    Astaroth
    Nergal
    Satan scene 2
    Perun scene 1
    Boreas (reported by me)
    Triton (first tentacle scene, reported by me)

    Story/Events:
    Adele (opening scene)
    Cybele (character scenes 1+2, reported by me)
    Rosenkreuz
    Van Helsing (confirmed by me)
    Phoenix
    Garuda
    Jormungandr (reported by me)

    ***

    I previously noted that the intro H-scene of Nutaku's Kamihime Project R had been badly mistranslated. After a few more scenes like this, I noticed a pattern: the mistranslations tended to occur in scenes with coerced sex, and typically involved cries of "No, stop it!" being replaced with "Please fuck me!" 'Pinned' appears to have been replaced with 'pined' in one scene. The resulting dialogue is so incoherent, the edits handled so hamfistedly, that even those without Japanese knowledge could spot that something is amiss.

    The full extent of the changes made in the English version is currently unknown. I've spotted deliberate mistranslations in multiple H-scenes, including the intro scene, Belphegor's 1*, and Cybele's 3*. I can only spot mistranslations in scenes from characters I've unlocked, and when the English dialogue doesn't match the Japanese female voices. Much of the scenes is not voiced, and I don't have most of the characters, and therefore what I've uncovered is possibly only the tip of the iceberg.

    I encourage users who are concerned about these changes to confront Nutaku about it on Twitter and via both game support ticket and website support ticket. While users may or may not deserve a censorship-free experience, they DO deserve to be told when changes to the game have been made to comply with regulations, and Nutaku has failed to meet this obligation.

    I document censorship like this in Nutaku's games and other eroge: Eroge with a censored official English release, a comprehensive list.
    I have also tracked Nutaku's long history of censorship, as well as their promise to notify users of any further censorship.

    Just so I'm clear here... the hill you've chosen to fight on is "Rape, Pedophila and Beastiality in Anime Games"? That's the cause you're bleeding for here?

    A full description of the rationale behind my documentation of eroge censorship is available here.

    Right. You're documenting all these changes, because "English publishers, caught between the allure of market forces that incentivize them to launder sexual or offensive content on one side and potential backlash from anti-censorship activists on the other, often seek the coward's way out".

    But the content they're "laundering out" is Rape, Pedophilia and Beastiality. Which is what you're de facto fighting for them to include. The "coward's way out" is not approving or endorsing Rape, Pedophilia and Beastiality.

    No. The project is far broader in scope than that. If you read on to the Project Goals section, that might become more clear.

    ...I'm kinda on the fence here, taking massive scissors to it means why bother trying?

    I mean picking it apart will just leave a horrid mess and more vanilla - they're weighting the amount of people the more exotic content will encourage to the amount is will discourage....shame

    I contacted Nutaku for comment and they've shared their viewpoint on the matter. They were refreshingly straightforward this time around. I've also translation-checked the prelude to Belphegor's first H-scene for side-by-side comparison. I'll finish writing it up and post it on my blog.

    Dude, why dont you just stop taking this scope, eroge or wth is all these matters seriously? Just play the game for fun and dont give a shit about the rest. I second Ramu's opinions here, you're on the same hill with all those rape, pedo fans...

    I also dont understand why people are against about implants that nutaku made on some characters. Japan is known for its notoriety in porn sector with all these pedo and rape stuff and nutaku is just fixing their shiet, whats wrong about that also. Honestly, this is a good reason to stay on nutaku side and not go into dmm section for me.

    Im not trying to be a good guy, its just this should how the things handled in moral levels. Porn itself is bad like drugs, why make it even worse?

    Oh, you have that mentality where people who play a game with this content are also that. I honestly didn't expect that from someone who plays Japanese porn games.

    Everyone who plays a game with rape or loli content are automatically rapists and pedophiles? I guess everyone plays GTA is gonna grow up to be a criminal and every game that involves killing people will turn people into killers. /sarcasm

    There are a lot of dumb humans out there but people aren't so fucking dumb to not be able to differentiate between fiction and non-fiction.

    I'm looking forward to this. I was a little confused by a lot of the content I saw as well, most notably a comparison of Billy the Kids scenes where anyone who has watched anime for a day knows she is clearly calling you "brother" but they chose to go with "cowboy". I though weird... maybe they have something against implied incest even though she is clearly not actually your sister.

    However much later I finally got Diabolos scene and here is a tiny girl bouncing around calling you Daddy a million times. This was the point where I gave up trying to understand their process and lack of overall quality control in their translations. So much of it feels like it was run through a machine and just spat out without any human looking at it other than to ctrl-f and replace certain possibly "offensive" words.

    Imagine there are plenty of fans who would be happy to join a translation board and help improve their translations for a small jewel or ngold allowance.
