So Naruto's naked Jutsu is really naked in the orignal? It's a man, so why remove male nipples? [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Anyway, I guess your word is trustworthy enough. I've moved the Naruto nipples to the confirmed list. Let me knwo when you have some more details. Scans can go in a separate thread, I think. Best to keep this one simple to avoid too much bloat.

Just to be clear the previously mentioned nipple edits in Naruto are slight - they aren't like, full nipples (as someone mentioned is rare for jump anyway), but there is the frequent practice of slight erasing of lines or adding extra fog/smoke etc*. Almost all of my Jumps and some of my manga are boxed away because I'm getting ready to move, so I can't really pull them out at this moment... however:
I was looking at the 2 most recent JUMP issues just now -- The clan's curse mark on Neji's forehead has been changed in the VIZ version. It has changed to an "~X~" (but I think this change was in the anime too?.. been awhile for me... ) - In the original its the manji sign (often confused with the swastika).
There are also UNCONFIRMED
questions regarding recent chapters -- notably: the June and July issues of Jump (chapters 91-94) where there are lots of Ninja Centerfold shots (with nipples and butt) and also girls frolicking in the water/nearby with bathing suits on - some of the tops look suspicious, but this is one of the volumes missing from my (Japanese) collection so I was unable to verify when the question was raised. There's also a pic in chapter 90 -- Page 166 in the English version of volume 10 -- of a girl in the bath house with (what I think is) a poorly-drawn towel draped over her shoulders, covering her chest. Can't comfirm that is an edit either though, but if anyone has volumes 10-11 of the Japanese, they could check on any of the afore-mentioned areas for us.
edit: found the pic i was thinking of, listed with page number in english GN.
*edit 2: Ok, going back to the early nipple thing, with an example: Page 76 of volume 1 Ninja centerfold: The slight outline of the nipple was removed originally, then restored in printing #2 (ie silver covered limited edition book, for example), but then apparently disappeared in a later printing (3 or 4). This has all been confirmed on this board in the past, but the notes in question I think have long fallen off. There are other instances, but I don't have all the books at hand or the time to flip thru them all again right now.
Edit 3 - pictures for the curious of Neji edit.
and VIZ's Neji
-- this of course applies to every shot of him where the mark is visible, just scanned this one page from chapter 102.
