Tomorrow, the latest disc version of anime Mekakucity Actors goes on sale in Japan. Above, you can see a scene from the broadcast version. And holy crap, the Blu-ray/DVD release seems different.

The anime, of course, is based on the light novel Kagerou Project.

Since the latest Blu-ray/DVD isn't out yet, we don't know yet how different, but as this teased image shows, expect parts of the home release to be very, very, very different.

So here is the TV version.

Yeah. Let that sink in. They're not a little different. They're incredibly different.

Last year, Kotaku covered the differences found in Blu-ray anime releases. To date, this has to be one of the most noticeable ones.
