Jigokuraku blu-ray

A Twitter user sharing screenshots from the blu-ray release of anime Jigokuraku had some realizing the breasts of the female characters have shrunk.

Some of the screenshots shared that depicted some of the sultry female characters with a diminished chest (TV broadcast on top, BD below):

Others noticed that the quality of the BD in some shots also seemed lower than the TV broadcast.

Here’s a summary of the anime:

Sentenced to death, ninja Gabimaru the Hollow finds himself apathetic. After leading a blood-soaked life, Gabimaru believes he deserves to die. However, every attempt to execute him inexplicably fails. Finally, Sagiri Yamada Asaemon, a fledgling member of a famed executioner clan, is asked to take Gabimaru’s life; yet Sagiri makes no move to kill him as requested.

Insisting that Gabimaru will not die because of his love for his wife, Sagiri instead offers him the chance to obtain a full pardon for his crimes. If he can travel to the island of Shinsekyo and obtain the Elixir of Life—which supposedly grants immortality—and bring it back for the shogun, then his freedom will be assured.

But of the many who have traveled to Shinsekyo in search of the mythical Elixir, not a single person has returned sound of mind, if at all. Though unaware of the numerous dangers ahead, Gabimaru decides to accept the offer—alongside ten other death row convicts—in hope that he and his wife may finally live in peace.

It’s not certain why these changes were made.

Usually blu-ray disc releases are an opportunity for an anime to reveal uncensored nude females to buyers to encourage sales.

Jigokuraku began airing April 1st of this year and concluded in July.
