Apparently, this example was cut because it doesn\'t seem to fit the description of GCPR. But I heavily dispute that fact on the basis that Sacred First Kiss in Japan is serious business as described here:
We know from the XY interview that Serena was meant to be kissing Ash, but they couldn\'t show the kiss because of TV censors. That\'s why they went with the feet popping. The criteria for GCPR is as follows:
Considering that kissing is Serious Business in Japan, almost the same as sex in the West, it makes sense for the Media Watchdogs in Japan to censor kissing between Ash and Serena, especially considering they are not really teenagers unlike many examples on Sacred First Kiss page. The interview with Yajima and the producers of XY confirm such censors exists and they were really pushing the series to the edge:
Yajima (Director): In the middle of production, I added in a scene intended to show them kissing. It\'s just that I wasn\'t allowed to have them kissing on screen, so I had Serena\'s feet \"floating\" to show it instead.
Producer: Kids are the main target audience, after all, so among the things we can\'t do, this series is definitely on the edge.
It\'s one of the few times that Getting Crap Past The Radar is outright confirmed by the creators\' part and not something that the viewers have to judge for themselves. I think it\'s worth mentioning.

How well does it match the trope?
