I gave my input on the manga a while ago
. The other scenes I've listed do have sexual connotations, so I wouldn't say it gets completely off the hook, but tdgoodrich covered the scene which I feel is probably the most dubious of the lot. In terms of "quantity" (the number of suggestive scenes involving said character), I definitely don't think it's primarily
paedo-pandering. In terms of "quality" (the level of detail which said scenes are depicted), it's trickier, but the scene tdgoodrich mentions is probably as bad as it gets, and it never really reaches such levels again. So overall, I'm of the opinion that it's questionable, but not quite at the level of the things we're looking to cut.
As an aside: Taking the licensing issues of KnJ
into account, if Omamori Himari
was really that problematic in terms of paedo-pandering content, it would never have reached your shelves in the US. On the other hand, Eiken
made it over, so... I guess there's no accounting for taste?
