I was listening to the latest podcast from the BBFC and they were talking about how they classify anime.
It seems to cause them quite a lot of problems. Mainly down to cultural issues that don’t translate very well over here in “The West”. School uniforms and tentacles seem to be the main areas of concern as they can be classified anywhere from U to 18.

The BBFC podcast is also available on iTunes to download and keep forever. An interesting mix of history and what it’s like to work in such an historic institution.
