Ok so I am not in the know-how of which of these came first, but why is there both a censored and uncensored version of this card and which came first? The censored version of the card I got from this pre made harpie deck with all of them censored, while I picked up an uncensored version in a Rise of Destiny booster pack the other day.
Kinda curious about why this happened, and why they bothered to have both a censored and uncesored version.

some key differances is the mouth along with the body skin color and the detail in the bust area. Plus her leg warmers are different colors as well. Seems like a lot of work went in to change these cards, yet I am consfused why they bothered to censore it in the first place if they were releasing an uncensored version. Plus It would be intresting to find out what other cards share this fate and why.

The thing is, thanks to Yu-Gi-Oh! being made child friendly in the US, a lot of card art has been altered to be less offensive.

I actually got one of the uncensored Harpie Girls myself.

My guess is that the older sets went uncared about and when someone noticed or some haggard old lady saw kids playing with them, complained and they edited it.

Usually the only time you'll see the unedited versions of cards is when you're comparing the Japanese versions to American.

A few off the top of my head:

The other Harpie Ladies (similar edits to Harpie Girl)
Cyber Harpie Lady (spiked nipples removed)
Don Zaloog (guns changed to swords)
Soul Release (a dress was added to the nude female form)
Dark Magician Girl (the 5 star pendant is changed to a solid color)
Injection Fairy Lily (her name in Japanese is Injection Angel Lily)
Spellbinding Circle (Again, changed from a 5 pointed star to having more star points)
Gemini Elf (more of the dresses are added to cover up the cleavage)

But as far as I know, those edits are only between the Japanese and American Versions
Harpie Girl is the only one I know where the edit changes from different series of cards.

It's not so much the Japanese are naughty, it's more of American youths are covered in censor bars.
How there they believe Don Zaloog, a man with a bullet chain around him, carries guns.

The Cyber Girl cards and Allure Queen LV7 have also been censored.
