Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend/Legend of the Demon Womb

This multi-region release is heavily censored from the Urotsukidoji: Perfect Collection R1 release. There has been 43 minutes of feature cut from Legend of the Overfiend and 17 minutes cut from Legend of the Demon Womb. The prologue to the latter feature suffers particularly badly and is almost halved. The general  feature of censorship is the cutting of scenes depicting phallic penetration of orifices (any orifice that is). Explicit shots of genital orifices and tentacle stimulation of these are also specifically cut. There is inconsistent editing of depicted masturbation - male and female. The prologue scene omits all scenes of the mechanical phalluses in action which, though distasteful, leaves one in considerable confusion as to what is happening in the R4 version.
