Black Sacrifice remastered comparison
The third episode Black Sacrifice of the Bible Black: La Noche de Walpurgis anime series was later rereleased as a Japanese only censored remastered edition with updated graphics and art style. It also corrected a number of canonical discrepancies. This page contains several images of this new version and the original episode for comparison.
- For an overview of all 67 images from the remastered episode, see Images from Black Sacrifice (remastered).
The abstract wall poster in Minase's room is also correctly changed to match the one seen in subsequent episodes.
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).
The art style has been revamped to be more in tune with subsequent entries of the anime series, particularly the sequel Bible Black: New Testament. The character detail has increased significantly, most noticeably in the faces.
Like in the screenshots seen above, the colors in the remastered episode have also been adapted, making some scenes look a lot more vibrant and saturated with bright colors. A lot more striking than the original version.
Some of the special effects, such as the magic spells and the Devil's portal, have also been redone slightly.
