Sexy Battle Girls Heavily Cut in the UK

Japanese Pink Eiga Film Misses Almost 7 Minutes

The rules of what kinds of sex can be viewed on the UK internet have been drastically tightened. But while that battle is still going on, the home video sector has to deal with strict rules for quite some time already. Especially if sex is mixed with violence. That is quite often the case in Japanese erotic dramas and considerable cuts are no rare occasion. Sexy Battle Girls (made in 1986) is the most recent example as it had to be cut by 6:50 minutes for its UK DVD premiere.

This work was cut. The cuts were compulsory. To obtain this category cuts of 6m 50s were required. [...] Cuts required to scenes of sexual violence. Cuts required in accordance with BBFC Guidelines, policy and the Video Recordings Act 1984.

The censored UK release will hit the shelves on January 19th, 2015. An uncut version of the film is available in the US for some time already. You can order it at Amazon.com.
