I ran across some articles online that people were petitioning to get the Tenjo Tenge anime uncensored, but this was back in 2005. 
 
I wonder. Has the uncensored version of Tenjo Tenge been released yet?

The english dub release may have been censored, the japanese anime wasn't. 
The big controversy I remember was the cencoring of the american manga

So far, from what I have seen in the English dub that I am watching, it is censored. I am only on episode 2 as I type this, but episode 1 where Souichiro crashes into the bath house where Aya is, no nudity was shown.
 
Are you talking about the original Japanese anime? That was not censored? If I find the Japanese sub, would it most likely not be censored? 
  
I did not hear that the American manga was censored. Did they change that yet?

Correct-well to a point, there's no outright full nudity in any version.

Im not sure if they changed it.  
The unedited manga has lots of full nudity and other things which would warrant an R rating.

So, it's not like Queen's Blade? That has a lot of nudity. 
 
Like I said, right now I am checking out Tenjo Tenge because a friend told me to check it out, but I also did some research on the anime beforehand, and I saw the petitions to get Tenjo Tenge uncensored.

@hitsusatsu11: Also, I checked out the manga real quick, and the scene where Souichiro falls into the bathhouse, Aya is naked and there is nudity, but in the anime version that I am checking out that is dubbed, there is no nudity. 
 
And to add one more thing, I checked out the same episode with the bathhouse right now on a subbed version, and it was censored as well. I am assuming that in America, there is no version of Tenjo Tenge uncensored.

@TheLegendaryOne: Ya, the manga has lots of nudity and stuff. The anime (both subbed and dubbed) never went as far. (In the manga there is some REALLY graphic stuff) 
I think the dubbed english release may censor some stuff in the JP uncut anime, but even uncut the anime leaves a lot of the more "riske" stuff out.

It seems as though none of them have any nudity, as least from what I have seen so far. I checked out a dubbed version and a subbed version of the anime, and they were censored. The same scenes were censored, but in the manga the scene was uncensored. 
 
I am assuming that none of the anime versions, subbed or dubbed, here in America are uncensored. That's what it seems like to me.

@TheLegendaryOne: Don't get confused. The manga has graphic scenes that were simply never animated, not merely animated and then edited.  
There may be some scenes that appeared in the JP anime that were cut in the english release, but even these cut scenes were not full nudity, as I said even the raw, uncut JP version is not the same as the manga.

Oh alright. I understand you. 
 
I am curious though, as to what they mean by "censored" in the American version? Was it fully censored, like 100%, or were some of the more graphic scenes just removed and there are still some mild nudity scenes in the manga?

You refer to the manga now right? 
 
If you decide to read it, you'll find some really graphic things. 
Idk if there is still some nudity left in the American version or not, but definitely the more graphic (pornographic really) scenes were surely cut out.

Yes, I am speaking about the manga now.
 
Oh, so Tenjo Tenge crossed over from just mild nudity and fighting, to excessive nudity, fighting, and hentai? 
 
Also, I am a little confused on what the difference is between the American and the Japanese versions of the manga. I can't tell the difference. I thought that all manga was Japanese, and people who can read both Japanese and English just subbed it so that the words would be in English. And then if you go online to websites where you can read manga, that is what you get.

Pretty much

If you read Tenjo Tenge online by fanscans, it will be uncensored-fans just take the JP manga as it is, and translate it. 
If you buy the official American release, it will be heavily censored-the american company (CMX, technically a subsidiary of DC comics) translates it, but also takes out offensive things.

As far as I'm aware, the manga hasn't been uncensored.  It was originally released by CMX, DC Comics' little manga imprint.  However, they made the mistake of giving the series a younger rating.  Therefore they had to edit it.  Fewer panty shots, less nudity, and notably less violence.  One of the bad guys raped Chiaki, Bob's girlfriend in the first volume.  However, CMX changed it to beaten up. 
 
Somewhere along the line, they upped the rating.  That's why later kidnappings & sexual torture was more blatant.  However, I don't believe that they went back to un-edit the first few volumes.  However, you can still read scanlations on various websites if you wish to see the full gory version.
