Anime blog Random Curiosity has a curious article about Bakemonogatari episodes 9 and 10, which just came out on both DVD and Blu-Ray in Japan. Now, there have frequently been differences between new releases and their broadcast counterparts, but it looks like Bakemonogatari has, true to form, decided to take the cake on this one-- not just a director's cut, but a complete re-animation of at least one episode. Here are a couple of side-by-side screencaps, broadcast left and Blu-Ray right.
Pretty significant, eh? But I'll say, I'm not entirely sure I dig the Blu-Ray versions 100% better than the original versions-- if anything I'd say I find myself liking them equally.
How about you? Would you rather buy the DVD/Blu-Ray version, or the broadcast version?
