Well, no matter who did it or 'okayed' it, it's still an edit made for the US release and it'll be on the list.
The old 'the original artist okayed it/did it him/herself' is just a convienent excuse for companies to dodge complaints.
In the end, the US release is edited and that is unacceptible to me.
[/ QUOTE ]No I understand that but actually some of the changes were not made just for the US release. Some were done for reprints in Japan. Though I don't know if all were in the Tokuma Shoten Perfect Collections that were released two years ago.
That's what makes this one tricky. I know of one where he was asked for a change and he did it (don't remember if that even got to see a GN or not if it was only in the Magazine) and the other was done long before Gutsoon. And of course there were a handful more that we never got to see. Hojo himself said he re-thought the purpose of those scenes and changed some of these through the years.
