Comparisons of Hyouka’s Blu-ray to the televised airing show some minor, seemingly needless, though nonetheless respectable improvements in both moeblob – as well as other general items and objects alike.
While Hyouka’s story has been wavering amongst a repugnant, and more respectable state, the actual visual animation has been relatively commendable regardless – and thus, it’s not a surprise to see there’s little which needs adjustment on Blu-ray. And even then, the corrections seen here aren’t even particularly necessary, nor noticeable without a magnifying glass and specific intent to seek them out – indeed, these are the most insignificant Blu-ray adjustments ever made.
Looking below at the arrangement of frames, a few pixels were filled in within the first in order to simply make it more logical in case anyone were to ever perform advanced forensic analysis, like now, and notice the meager absence of several pixels. Within the second set of edited frames, it’s merely another modest change – although this one is actually rather substantial, assuming anyone ever were to catch glimpse of it.
The shirt of Neon Lights was originally afflicted by the rookie mistake of being a layer atop the desk – meaning his upper body escaped space and time, detaching from his lower half, and somehow hovered over the desk. However as a solution, a layer of shadow was stripped to accommodate a lowered, and proper, positioning – returning him to regular human status.
As for the remaining alterations, they’re all merely moeblob eyebrow revisions – or single pixel replacements. Not too spectacular for a series about as basic as well – while one could say a lack of fixes means much was fine to begin with, it could also say the series in question never went anywhere to even require any improvements.
