Is there an uncensored version to all "Un-natural censorship"?

Ok so I searched the web and asked a few people but couldn't find a good answer, then I thought about asking my fellow weebs here on MAL.

So it goes like this: do you know how many MANY Anime, both Ecchi and Non-Ecchi by nature, have 2 types of censorship, 1 is the Physical censorship- for example when strands of hair or a piece of furniture covers the private parts or gaping wounds of the characters, and then there's the "Un-Natural" Type of Censorship- Rays of weird Light, Pitch Black circles or Blackened half screen, and of course the weird fog that doesn't look like a sauna steam or something, and my most recent example would be the circles or half\full screen covered with a cute little picture to censor what seems to keep happening in the background in NKSG?!.

So my question is- for all these "Un-Natural" types of censorship, is there a Completely Un-Censored version for those? and if there are, does it exists for some\most\all of the Anime with this Un-Natural censorship? and how can I get them if I so wish?

Official uncensored versions of anime usually come from BD only versions, as an incentive to buy them, and i assume censorship entails a wider appeal during TV release.

ye I assumed TV airing in Japan must with Censorship, and what we get(both from legal and illegal streaming sites) is also this always Censored Version.
but I want to know if every Anime have as an option BD that is completely uncensored, or whether most Anime doesn't even have these Uncensored BD and they only have the Censored TV Airing Versions.

I would assume not, but i have no metrics on that.

One of the main reasons I never watch Anime weekly. I rather wait for blu-ray release and watch stuff uncensored and higher quality..

Only channel in Japan I know that airs their shows uncensored for the post part is AT-X .

So... does all or atleast Most of the Anime out there have uncencored blue-ray versions for their episodes(and not just movies or very Mainstream/Popular Anime)?

mm, I think I got it now. now there stand 2 new and worrying questions:
1-how am I getting these discs when I'm not in Japan? ( i suppose asking where to buy legally is fine here right?).
2- how many piles of money are needed to buy hundreds\thousands of series episodes? (as opposed to buying just a few CDs of movies).

you can check out discs sales in the forums of this site for example https://www.fandompost.com/ like if you live in USA then see this https://fandompost.vbulletin.net/forum/anime-manga-discussions/us-blu-ray-dvd-and-simulcast-industry-news

its safe to say that Japanese discs are always more expensive than locally licensed discs though like way way more cheaper so if there is a legal license discs in your country then buy those

and also there is always torrenting/pirating for BluRay rips of anime

It seems a little excessive to spend tons of money just to see some uncensored action. I mean, if you actually want to own those anime anyway go for it, but if you just want to see the scenes out of curiosity there is always other ways to do it.

But to answer the question in the OP, if censorship looks unnatural then it will most likely be taken out in the BDs, however some censorship is just built into the scene and in very rare cases are you going to see nudity you otherwise wouldn't have. Obviously, there's a lot of anime that contains no nudity at all and censored or uncensored has nothing to do with it, even on the BDs.

I kinda explained that in my post, I know that if there is a strand of hair covering the boob or a chair blocking the view of the amputated leg, these are going to stay and are obviously just part of the Animation.

idk, I hate censorship both of nudity and gore because, well its been a while since I was kid and cant\shouldnt watch it, so every time I see this un-natural censorship I really wanna know how they actually animated it(mostly the gore, but obviously the ecchi as well), but I guess I don't want to know ENOUGH that I would start downloading torrents and buying CDs and stuff.
its just that some Anime are so heavily censored that it really takes all the fun out of watching them and spoils the experience.

What are you really asking?
If the "Un-natural censorship" anime have uncensored versions? Then yes.

Do you know how much anime is out there? More than 10,000+, so it's some anime, not most or all.
Don't bother if you don't know how special effects were done without computers.

yes
for instance, the nazi salute of a character from jojos bizzare adventure is censored with pitch black screen but its not from the bd version of the anime
but not to all of them i think
there are anime where these censorship are done purposely

I just wanted to make sure you didn't think you'd have to go into debt seeking out some secret treasure trove of nudity and gore.

So you don't really care then? The only thing I could suggest is stop watching TV anime and just wait for the BDs. I personally don't see censorship as ever-present in TV anime, but I guess it depends on what stuff you're watching, and how.

there are many Anime without censorship at all or with the "Built-In" censorship like hair, furniture, etc that blocks the view, I'm obviously not talking about those out of the 10K+ anime that exist, I only talk about all the ones with the "Un-natural" censorship where its kinda clear it was added on top of the actual animation to hide it for the TV airing. specifically for those(and let's forget the very old ones ), is there a bd version for them available? it makes sense to me that they do but idk really.

Not for all of them. Nisekoi actually added more "unnatural censorship" for its BD release.

I will be honest with ya, I only wanted to know for the sake of knowledge and peace of mind, that all these anime with the awful censorship that partially ruins my watching experience, have a redeeming version of them without this atrocious type of censorship, and with cleaner higher quality animation to boot.
I will keep watching all the TV aired versions, but I may buy myself the BD of something that I really like once in a while.
thanks for answering btw .
