samflam doodle of masayoshi about to ask goto to GO WATCH TOKU SHOWS WITH HIM!!!!!!!!!!
The first few Samurai Flamenco BDs seemed to have very few fixes in spite of the rampant QUALITY, but Samurai Flamenco Blu-rays 6 and 7 have a TON of small but noticeable corrections. It seems to ramp up starting with episode 14. I’m highlighting Beyond Flamenco’s scene because even though the changes seem subtle, he looks so much more like (our) Masayoshi that it was suddenly really jarring to hear Akira Ishida’s voice coming out of that mouth instead of Toshiki Masuda’s. These screencaps don’t match up exactly, but I think you can see the difference. Left is brodcast, right is Blu-ray, and they’re also captioned. (Beyond Flamenco’s scene in 15 is pretty much untouched, probably because it was relatively well done in the first place.*)
Other alterations include Masayoshi turning his head to look at Goto when they’re on the swings in 13, swapping Masayoshi’s purple sweater and orange shirt combo for white sweater and red shirt (the one time our red ranger actually wears red in one of his civilian looks), changes to the geography around Samurai Base, and adding menacing clouds when From Beyond’s attack begins. Manglobe’s really putting some care into their revisions.
* I don’t have any way to screencap BD 7, but if the raws somehow magically make their ways online, maybe I’ll do a comparison post then.
And to follow up my very brief brodcast/Blu-ray comparison post, this is just gratuitous BD Beyond Flamenco. I am not sorry, would you look at that face.
