Like the other volumes, Haganai’s fifth Blu-ray endeavor has heavy adjustments applied which range from tidied character complexions, to more miscellaneous and general alterations sure to be appreciated.
The above acting as our example, science girl has easy to spot differences between her two versions of appearance – the televised release sports a blander bodied figure. Shadow is flat on her frame, traveling not much more than a single direction – and this in turn takes an impact upon depth. Comparing any given area of the science megane girl, her chest for instance, the Blu-ray has it portrayed far nicer – in fact, looking closer, one can see that she’s been redrawn entirely.
Her TV rendition was replaced with a similarly posed sketch – yet one which is more deeply refined in many a respect, with shadow specifically being a massive area of improvement. The light acting upon her chest has been made to go several directions – a more realistic response to the assorted light sources of the scene, yet notice that it seems her chest has also been relocated entirely, shifted upward a fair amount.
Similar changes of value and intricacy can be seen with the owner of the meat factory – his visage is more subjected to shadow around the edges of his head, as well as the mouth, and on that note, his mouth was drawn to be one more reactive of an older male. His face was made to appear more wrinkled through shadow – and his hair was visually elaborated upon. Meanwhile, the additions and transformations of shadow around the mouth, eyes, and nose makes him clearly seem older – and lastly, his blush has been smoothed out via gradient.
Adding to the several many, this is merely another instance of enhanced Neighbor’s Club festivities on BD – characters given a greater sense of structure, and edited to more appropriately fit their intended appearance.
