What was modified from the Top Gun Mayano? For this you have to understand the background of the franchise. It turns out that the horse girls (Uma Musume) have two suits (Skins), one school and another that they use to run, with Mayano Top Gun inspired by a aviation uniform. Its official description writes:

«Evasion, interception, persecution ... A great girl who dominates all the styles of career, changing them at will. She is quite rioting. In any case, she runs depending on how she feels she at the time, and she has an inconsistent race record (although she seems that she does not care at all). She has an innocent and childish personality, always mocking the coach, but recently she has started to grow a little and act as if she were the age of her. Every time she wins, she launches exaggerated kisses to the public ».

What is the problem? It turns out that in his racing uniform, the character has a jacket with several pins with flags from different countries of the world and there is one in particular that could bring problems to delivery if the intention of him is to distribute the video game in China. This is, one of the pins is from the Flag of Taiwan, also known as the Republic of China, whose political status is uncertain to date. In addition, Taiwan is claimed by the People's Republic of China, which rejects diplomatic relations with countries that recognize it.
