    "666" "satan" most people do not even know how,when these terms started, its history i mean.this shows how people or group of people hve been succesful in controlling what norms should be,blinding and chaining our mind in their self-centered "truth".a sin against our very own intellect.

    I gotta be the one to state the simple, obvious thing.

    If you don't want to be protested again for influencing children to worship a mythological figure of "evil," then it's common sense to just change the title page to avoid people seeing happy "children" being representatives for the idea of "666" "Satan."

    It has nothing to do wind deceit or brainwashing, it's all about business. That manga is marketed at children and alot of parents in western cultures would be hesitant to allow their children to read something with a title like that. It's not a big conspiracy, just a simple understanding of the market.

    Well said. That was kind of the entire point of my post as well, even if it comes off sounding like I'm supporting the accusations.

    Im not sure it will really change the fact that jio has a big 666 and that its kinda hard to avoid that. if they're going to read it they most like are going to see it and react in the same way

    honestly tho....it is kinda funny

    I was rather surprised, and laughed a bit to myself, when I saw the sensored name of 666Satan at BooksAMillion. Of course they had to do that in America, b/c most of the people in Japan are not Christian, while the dominant religion in America IS Christianity. Imagine trying to sell that manga when 40% of the people just look at the title and run. (=

    when I first saw it. I was all WTH???? but later on I just went meh. I think O-parts hunter has a lot less impact compared to 666 satan. Censoring it will probably lessen the sales for adult buyers. (most manga buyers here are around 15+ years)

    Anyone who doesnt understand why it was changed is fricken dumb. Oparts hunter isnt a good name, but do you think for a second its a good idea to try and sell a book that has the name of the biggest evil in that countries predominant reliegeon? of course they had to change it.
    100% super crazy awesome!

    you'd be surprised...
    if its sounds interestting or looks cool, most people would probrally pike it up and just read. I,myself, am Christian and didnt run when i first saw it here
