Takashi Miike's Full Metal Yakuza Edited?

During the sequence where the head is on the desk and learning of his new body, I noticed that the R1 DVD covers the Roboman's penis with pixels. Is every DVD release edited like this? It could be a funny joke if I could see what the creator is doing with the penis. At first I thought I had bad artifacts on my DVD, but then realized what they were covering. Any one know of anything else edited out or if there is an unedited version somewhere?

Yes. It's standard mosaicing in Japan since their censorship does not allow for this to be seen. It's most likely on the original master.

its a miike thing. he does it in several films : self "enforced" censorship, in a way he's playing on the idea of censorship or suggesting "this is so obscene it would be censored"... infact "obscene" would be "sexual content involving genitals".

in agitator he blurs out a knifing of a mans chest intentionally also... though thats not sexual (obviously)... he is still playing with visual techniques to create interest and play with the viewers minds...
