Noelle Aman, a video essayist who studied anime and manga, has decided to delete the video because she didn't want it to be watched properly.

The video, which was first uploaded on June 9, was fine until months later when it was removed on August 8. By the time Noelle realized it was missing, it had gained 16,000 views. The video delved into the details of each game in the Ayayo series as well as its connection to the broader genre of erotic games in Japan called eroge.

The appeal was rejected within five minutes of sending it, according to Kotaku. Their reply was the standard it violated our community guidelines without any explanation. They also did not explain what in the video violated guidelines.

Over the years, YouTube has sought to clarify its sexual content policies. Specifically, it allows nudity and other content that might be construed as sexual when it is for educational purposes rather than sexual gratification. Even YouTube recognizes, however, that there is a huge gray area between these two cases.

Noelles video falls far short of falling into the educational category. It's a high-quality video essay that is comparable to other Patreon subscribers' works, especially when it comes to genitals and explicit sexual acts (here are two examples). A less censored version of the gameplay has remained active on YouTube for over two years.

The thing that is the most frustrating about this is that Noelle claimed it was made without watching the video. It is no worse than content that has already gotten millions of views on their platform or been on for years, and if they had seen the video they would have seen that it is ultimately about documenting a series of games important to Japanese games history.

YouTube has maintained its original assessment. After Noelles Twitter threads about the takedown began appearing on social media, the company announced on August 11 that it will examine the video for the purpose of sexual pleasure w/absence of educational purposes. However, the company has yet to disclose which parts of the nearly hour-long video are the issue.

Sexually explicit games, like other erotic media, have had a long history of censorship. Even now, some games are no longer allowed on Steam stores, while others remain, with no clear indication on how the judgments are made.

The lack of clarity from YouTube, as well as the fact that the video had already survived for months without issue, have left Noelles to speculate on whether or not the action was motivated by mass reporting or other trollish behavior, especially since it was not an issue when her channel was less popular.

She speculated that it might have been mass flagging for any reason. It's difficult to know who or who were against the person who yelled me out recently, Super Eyepatch Wolf. It's also possible that transphobes or people who are vehemently anti-sex are behind the events.

Noelle now feels like she has no other option than to be overly cautious in her editing in the future. I'll continue to work on content regardless and be more cautious in the future, perhaps to a silly extent, as she said in a recent Patreon post. I'm not dying until the world allows me and everyone else to discuss eroge freely. This is non-negotiable.
