blu ray changes

HC: Victor is a Nerd

Screenshots were provided by @kukapanda with permission for me to use!

Ok so you know how in Ep. 1 we get a glimpse of Victor’s apartment.

In the blu ray version, they changed how his apartment looks. It’s still very stylish but it is much more cozy as well.



I strongly support the headcanon that although Victor is forgetful and can be very ditzy, he loves learning, is super book-smart, and very well-read. 

Victor’s the type of person to hold all the Weird Facts and blurt them out at the most random times.

Victor also genuinely likes receiving books as presents.

Victor’s the one to drag Yuuri into bookshops and he never leaves one empty-handed.

Victor’s the type of person to murmur deep poetry into Yuuri’s ears when he kisses him. 

Victor is the biggest nerd.

*blushes* I was just curious... But do you know why they changed Kotetsu's facial design for -The Rising-? It kinda annoys me because for some reason that's all I can focus on whenever I see it! XD Don't get me wrong, love the movie, but it's so... Different. I mean, I feel it's different but I can't tell what... Thank you and love this place! *heart*

Hi anon, thank you for the compliment and i’m glad you’re enjoying the site! :3 In regards to your question, The Rising’s character designs were more strictly based on Masakazu Katsura’s (main character designer for the series) designs for the movie. For a bit of context, in the series Katsura designed all the main characters, however, the series adapted to use Hayama Kenji’s art style more (also another lead character designer and animation director for the show) during the animation. A good comparison to show the difference in styles is the tv vs. home dvd/blu-ray animation fix ups/changes they made. Barnaby’s original appearance in the series looked more like Katsura’s style, but they changed it in the home release (this is from The Beginning) to look more like Kenji’s style. The series was more consistent to use Kenji’s style after the second episode.

In The Rising, they decided to adapt Katsura’s style for the both the animation and design this time around, which is why they look slightly different.

In regards to Kotetsu, Katsura has always believed that Kotetsu’s appearance should look a bit older (my personal take is that I think he means more “mature”) which is slightly noticeable in this comparison below. Another note is that Kotetsu’s chin is slightly broader and his eyes are smaller in The Rising, in comparison to the TV design, where his eyes are quite larger. The “crow’s feet” around the eyes are also slightly more prominent in Katsura’s design for The Rising to make him seem “older”. I also think because Kotetsu’s appearance is tidier (e.g. fringe cut shorter, hair no longer at shoulder length and side burns) it also helps to contribute to his design feeling slightly “different”.

So in conclusion, there are definitely some slight differences to pretty much all the main character’s designs in The Rising from the tv series if you look closely, Kotetsu’s design is just the most obvious. I hope that helps answer your query.

The Take | Episode 01

The cover for the DVD version displayed at the JFC is different than on the official site? You can’t really see too well in the picture, but they made some letters green in everyone’s names to spell out Ohkura’s name:

Subaru Shibutani - Shota Yasuda - Ryo Nishikido - Shingo Murakami - You Yokoyama - Ryuhei Maruyama


Dean Winchester, Dr. Sexy fanboy

I just got season 5 in Blu Ray and rewatched “Changing Channels.” I never really noticed before, but in the first scene of “Dr. Sexy, MD,” Dr. Sexy is smooching in the elevator with Dr. Piccolo (the doctor who later goes around slapping Sam repeatedly and calling him a “brilliant, brilliant genius”). 

In his hotel room, Dean is watching enraptured, open-mouthed. It’s easy to think he’s imagining himself in that elevator… smooching, one assumes, Dr. Piccolo.

But look at his reaction when he realizes they’re caught up in a TV show and he’s actually seeing Dr. Piccolo in the flesh:

He’s happy about it, but hardly blown away. But as soon as Dr. Sexy shows up, a harp sounds (a harp, for cryin’ out loud– is there any bigger romantic cliche?), and Dean starts grinning like an idiot, his Adam’s apple bobbing up and down nervously. His voice drops almost to a whisper as he says in awe, “It’s him… it’s Dr. Sexy.” And when he actually finds himself confronted by Dr. Sexy, he is clearly nervous, awkward as hell, and can’t even maintain eye contact.

So… who was Dean really imagining kissing in the elevator when he was watching “Dr. Sexy, MD”? I honestly don’t think it was Dr. Piccolo…


Out of boredom I tried something I always had in mind to do. I was never really impressed with the technicolor in Gorgo and even the blu-ray doesn’t really change my opinion about that. It can be distracting at times. I decided to make it into a black and white movie just to see how it plays out. I adjusted the night scenes accordingly so it’s not just one simple desaturation of the entire picture. So after almost four hours of rendering time I can say that I actually like the movie more in black and white than in color.

It does give it a 50’s vibe but I don’t mind that so much.
