Flashback scene

Reika Kitami's flashback scene has mostly been adapted to the scene seen in the second episode of Bible Black: Origins. However, some parts have been revamped as well, as seen in the bottom left shot below. This shot depicts two unknown witchcraft club members that have the same appearance in both the original Black Sacrifice episode and the Origins episode. The remastered edition gives them a completely new and more detailed look. Additionally, several shots were added, such as one that shows Rie look up in fear at Kozono just before she is killed (screenshot).
