Which also means father. So, in the case of Japanese, it is far harder to censor out everything because of multiple meanings of various words. And the reason for the censoring was simply because they just ported over the censors from PSOBBJP. But like I said, it's not a bad thing to have these words censored. Simply because these words don't affect gameplay or (normal) conversation unlike the infamous non-Japanese censors. If anything I am a bit surprised at this because of the complexity of censoring the Japanese words while trying not to censor out non-vulgar words.
I'm assuming you mean "chichi" 父 when you say that... I was reffering to "chikubi" ちくび and other ways to reffer to the boob region. "chichi" isn't exactly used when you say "Hey, look at that set of tits!" At least not by any of my friends, heh.
The censors aren't very difficult in the JP. For example:
アメ公 is censored
アメコウ あめこう あめ公 are not. It is not very specific.
There are a lot of words that share pronounciations, but not very many are vulgar words. An easy way around that is censor certain kanji combinations which can not be misinterpretted in any way. Easy to get around, yeah, but if you're going to censor Japanese as well, might as well do it at the same level as they've done it to English.
They have censored words like "sex" or "clitoris," but not words like gay, homo, poop, fart, or 'masterbate' (masturbate for those of you with a grasp of English).
*EDIT* This forum can't display Japanese... good job. Let me figure out how to get this to work..
