Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 10 has been restricted in China.

Season 2 Episode 10 of Shield Hero censored in China

It was reported that this episode was censored because of various reasons. Not only one but two different scenes were censored; the first one was when Rapthalia ends up getting naked to change her clothes; two, was where Kizuna wounds one of the tigers with her weapon.

In the scene where Kizuna saved Rapthalia from a huge tiger who is about to attack her while she is weak, the blood was censored in Chinese version letting the scene get closer in order not to show the wound of the huge tiger from Kizuna’s attack.

In the original version, the whole scene was shown including the blood spurting from the wounded tiger. Maybe Chinese thinks that this scene corresponds with too much violence and they aware that there are younger viewers of the anime. As such, blood is also something that makes some people uncomfortable.

As for the other scene where Rapthalia finds a place where she can change clothes, in the original version, she appeared naked holding a sword infront of her body while trying to cover her private parts.

There are some people who complained about this censorship, stating that the Chinese version is ruining the essence of the original version. As to the Chinese community, these kind of censorships are just normal and not only observed in animes but also in games (i.e. Genshin Impact).
