Normally I would just assume its censorship but judging how Lawrence doesn't seem taken back at all during those scenes, it has me puzzled.
It's censorship, but Lawrence doesn't react much (reacts even less in the novels from what I hear) because he's kind of a jaded merchant type and very analytical for the most part. Plus he realizes that it's not a girl naked in front of him, but a several hundred year old wolf god, which would probably do wonders for forcing you to kept a handle on your libido in front of her.

The whole art style is a bit abstract ... mundane details are left to the imagination.
(and it keeps those wacky censors calm - which strikes me as extra odd.

Not everyone goes freaking nuts with an undressed girl in front of them - if anything their first thought is "lets find you a cloak". Her underlying alien-ness just makes it even more likely he's going to keep his wits about him.

OTOH... he clearly finds her interesting (see all his glancing in ep 2).

Agree with Ultenth of it just being their way of censorship. I'm sure Horo has fine human "parts".

Certainly makes some sense after episode two why he wasn't reacting as much as one would expect. Hadn't exactly had the greatest encounters with wolves in the past which would probably leave you on guard.

Also with questioning her about being a demon or a possessing spirit he probably didn't consider her as a naked girl. Now later one when he's more comfortable you can get some reactions.

Aye, and like Vexx said, not every guy reacts like a 15 year old anime character and gets nose-bleeds or goes gaga over a naked body in front of them. Lawrence is 25 years old, and has probably seen his share of naked bodies. While he's obviously not apathetic to it, it's not such a big deal anymore once you get older (also depends on the culture you're brought up in).

It actually sort of matches the mildly abstract drawing style of the manga as well.

Bah I'll post a few examples in a few minutes.

Yet, in the presence of Kuroe, Lawrence becomes somewhat nervous when she says she's become an adult

Considering hero, heroine + 4 other CV's, this anime with its limited voice cast is much more interesting than a lot of stuff out there. Add to that, Ami Koshimizu performs the Oiran dialect very amazingly (is that even a word?)...can't think of a better CV for Horo than her tbh :P

Which is part of why it's confusing. Around other women ( although we have only had 1 real example ) Lawrence acts timid.

Well.... I suppose I'll have to pull the card that Lawrence is complicated too... we don't know that he acts timid around "women" ... we only know that in the case of Chloe, he doesn't want to entertain the idea of 'settling down' even though she presents an array of practical and erotic reasons he might want to in her proposal
I understand and applaud the complexity being displayed in this story -- I hope they can maintain the power levels

Although one has to wonder if he wasn't so much being timid as being cautious?
The woman was trying to charm him into taking up a partnership with her. He had to keep his business mask on, and understand that there is no free lunch here. Making money sometimes means controlling one's urges.

Here's an example of Horo in the manga for a comparison of the art style in the animation versus the manga
Spoiler for artistic nudity similar to the series depiction from the manga:

As you can see, the art style of the anime is simply matching the manga's style .... some of the drawing style of S&W reminds me of stained-glass work. So I'm going to guess they're going for a feudal art style rather than photo-realistic accuracy Not saying there isn't "censorship" but its more of a gauzy art style than those damned stupid police banners and still frames that plague so many series. I wouldn't expect the style to be any different in the DVD releases.

Yer, also the next page of that he is standing there pretty much buck naked in front of her, well, he is holding his pants in front of himself. but yeah, neither seemed to give a damn either way, they were more concerned about getting dry then ogling the others jigglies..

Hmm... Oddly enough, the episode 3's preview title for episode 4 is "Wolf and Powerless Partner", but the website's...

Spoiler for ep4 preview summary:

Remember that the society was different back then. IMO, People were more open because they were more religious. Their thinking was that God had intended for Adam and Eve to be naked, so there's nothing wrong with nudity in the first place.
