Dang. That's a pity.

Question: Japan wouldn't allow marijuana enthusiasts like Seth Rogen into the country?

And this similar pull reminded me of something:
SpoilerShow
Similarly, episode 4 of Psycho-Pass' Extended Edition was pulled from Japanese TV due to a reported murder of a teenage girl and her classmate being the culprit. Shockingly, the pulled episode was the Oryo arc, with a similar and most horrifying MO.
So... Zangetsu VS Sirfetch'd Death Battle when??

Definitely not, I know Britney Spears was refused entry about 10 years ago when she had that drug problem.

There was Ai Takabe who was a VA who got arrested on cocaine possession. The anime she voiced were removed from streaming services and was dropped by her agency soon after news of her arrest came out. Since then the charges against her were dropped but still has no agency and the anime hasn't fully returned.

So don't do drugs as a celeb and lose everything in Japan.

I know it's a different culture and I shouldn't judge, but this whole thing feels kinda gross. As far as we are from solving the drug problem, I thought it was generally accepted that trying to ignore the problem and hope it goes away is the worst solution. And even on a purely business level, all the other actors and people who collect royalties from reruns and streaming now lose out because of something one person did? Ugh.

Yeah, it's fine to have ideals, but that is way too extreme and punishing.

I also heavily dislike Japan's idol culture. If they date a guy they lose all their fans and work? That's super lame. And it's so competitive too, one mistake and the next pretty young thing replaces you.

Well, the thing with the idol world is far from what it was. I follow some AKB groups, and at the beginning they were banished from the group if they were caught, then they started with some weeks out, doesn't appear on a single or some things like that. And now it's simply ignored most of the times.

I know that they really are strict in the Asian countries on idols that do drugs or alcohol--like some Jpop idols from Johnny's Ent. who were caught smoking underage were pretty much either sidelined or kicked out; and a Kpop idol from Super Junior was basically suspended from doing activities with the rest of the group when he did a drive-by hitting of an empty parked car while drunk (after getting involved in a little drunken brawl the month before that he did not start) though he did turn himself in after he sobered up, but which made him eventually do his 2 years of military service before he could come back to the group. But I feel like the US is too lenient with our celebrities who do drugs and such things. Granted, Asian countries may be too strict on stuff like that, but I feel like it is better to send a message of "we are not going to put up with crap like that" than to be all "there there it's all right, here's a slap on the wrist, and we don't really care if you do it again, we'll just slap you on the wrist again." Just my two cents worth. Maybe the Asian countries will ease up a little bit after a while, and maybe the US will get a little stricter on ours, but that might just be wishful thinking on my part.

I may be wrong but on the Facebook page apparently you guys say that it's because of a guest actor's use of drugs that episode 4 got the axe

Wow, so that's why, huh? It's like that in Korean drama/variety industry as well. Doing something illegal or scandal-like and network blacklist them, ban em, censor/blur their face (which looks dumb in some scenes)and etc. Usually, if it's something that's not relate to murder or very serious offense, they can return after few years of uhh doing nothing or charity work or whatever.

Kinda sucks how it would end up affecting others who have nothing to do with it, like that ep itself, actors, script, and whatever by removing that ep entirely. Glad it will end up on disc regardless.

So I guess in a sense only new fans (in Japan at least) will miss out what's going on so far?

Late to the party, but I just found this out: episode 4 WILL BE on the Blu-ray set. Here the episode list translated from the Amazon.co.jp site:
◎ content ◎
first story, "picture book" / second story, "Kageware" / The third story, "clock" / fourth story, "Supper" / fifth story, "Moonlight" /
sixth story, "beauty" / seventh story, "Ginga" / eighth story, "ring" / ninth episode "ordeal" / tenth story, "doll" /
eleventh episode "game" / twelfth story, "Taiga" / thirteenth story, "promise / fourteenth story," nightmare "/
fifteenth story," idol "/ sixteenth episode "red wine" / seventeenth story, "aquarium" / eighteenth story, "Sakaifu" /
nineteenth story, "black flame" / twentieth story, "life" / twenty-first story, "Madan" / second twenty-two story, "engraved" /
twenty-third story, "Kokorometsu" / twenty-fourth story, "girl" / twenty-fifth story, "hero" / TV unaired story "smile"
<TV Specials>
"of the Midnight Sun magical beast feature-length version of "
So the ban doesn't seem to be THAT permanent, thankfully. I'm relieved: the 3rd Pokémon short film hasn't been shown in Japan since 2009 because the narrator had a similar issue, so I was concerned. Good to know.

Happy New Year!

Bringing up a sore subject.... will there be a HD-rerelease of episode 3 with the proper preview as well as the HD release of episode 4?
Something happening on a show turns into a board comment.
