This is how Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon was censored in China

Recently the second season of the anime Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid) reached the catalog of China’s broadcast platform, Bilibili. The series comes a few months after it was originally aired in Japan, but evidently after having gone through the pertinent revisions to the laws in force in that territory. Thus, the series has undergone a great variety of modifications to adjust these laws that prevent, for example, the exposure of breasts or sexually suggestive images, resulting in frames and sequences such as the following (in the comparisons, the original version is shown above and the edited version for China is shown below):

The second season is officially titled as Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon S and it premiered in Japan on July 7, counting with twelve episodes and with Crunchyroll in charge of its distribution in the West. For its part, Cool-kyou shinja publish the manga in the magazine Monthly Action from the publisher Futabasha since May 2013. The thirteen episode first season originally premiered in January 2017 in Japan.

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon Synopsis

When Kobayashi goes to work one more day, she opens the door to her apartment to find an unusually terrifying image: the head of a dragon staring at her from the balcony. The dragon immediately transforms into a pretty, busty and energetic young woman, dressed in a maid outfit, who introduces herself as Tohru. It turns out that the stoic programmer had run into the dragon the night before on a drunken excursion through the mountains, and since the mythical beast had nowhere else to go, she had offered the creature a place to stay in her home. Thus, Tohru had arrived to take advantage of the offer, willing to return her savior’s kindness by working as her personal servant.

Although he deeply regrets his words and hesitates to fulfill his promise, a mixture of guilt and Tohru’s incredible dragon abilities convince Kobayashi to take the girl in. Despite being extremely efficient at her job, the maid’s unorthodox methods of housekeeping often end up horrifying Kobayashi and sometimes bring him more trouble than help. Furthermore, the circumstances of the dragon’s arrival on Earth appear to be much more complicated than it appears at first glance, as Tohru carries some heavy emotions and painful memories. As if that were not enough, Tohru’s presence eventually attracts other mythical beings to their new home, causing a lot of eccentric personalities to appear. Although Kobayashi does her best to handle the crazy situation she has found herself in, nothing has prepared her for this new life with a dragon maiden.
