The seventh episode of the anime adaptation of Chainsaw Man was quite controversial at the time, because the scene of the kiss with vomit that Himeno gives Denji within the story, ended up being censored so as not to hurt sensibilities of the viewers.

This includes things like vomit, which usually ends up being censored with mosaic or rainbow rain.

Synopsis for Chainsaw Man
The story takes place in a world where Demons threaten the peace of humans, making them targets to be eliminated. Denji is a depressed young man who has sold several of his organs and works as a lumberjack and demon hunter to pay off his late father’s debt. Denji owns a dog (which is also a demon) named Pochita, who has chainsaws and which he uses to do his work. This is explained because humans can make contracts with demons. After returning home from a job, Denji is called by a Yakuza to infiltrate a building and kill another demon. However, the plan was a trap to assassinate him as part of a Yakuza contract with the demon, gaining them more power. But Pochita comes to Denji’s aid and bonds with him, becoming a half-man, half-demon and acquiring Pochita’s chainsaws. Font: @JblenV on Twitter
