Religious symbols and references

Violence, gore, blood etc.

  • "Abyss-sphere" - Hand of "Mermail Abysslinde" is redrawn so that it is not around her neck. Her facial expression is also changed to look less agonized. The oxygen bubbles coming out of her mouth are removed to make the artwork not look like she is drowning.

Translated or removed text
