That’s One Way To Handle Anime Complaints

The latest episode of the PriPara (Prism Paradise) anime has raised eyebrows in Japan for the way the show changed its ending sequence.

PriPara started out as a kiddy arcade game in Japan and went on to spawn a manga and an anime.

According to IT Media, one possible explanation is a complaint from last month by Japan’s Broadcasting Ethics & Program Improvement Organisation (BPO), for an anime ending sequence in which a young female character only has one of her shoulder straps over her, well, shoulder. The complaint wondered if this suggestive pose was necessary in an anime that’s aimed at children, and that it makes parents “uncomfortable.” The BPO did not specifically name PriPara.

The most recent episode features a slightly altered image. Compare for yourself in the clip below (around 1:09).

Everything else in the ending sequence seems to be the same.
