    I wonder if it will be different from the recent WOWOW broadcast? I wouldn’t mind a high-def version of that with proper lossless audio.

    Also I have to say that the inclusion of part about ” Arena Tour Nippon Budokan documentary” actually leads me to believe the main performance event will be the arena rather than the Budokan, because why document the one you are showcasing? Just a guess.

    ^ Maybe for the rehearsals and how they felt about the live, or maybe it will be for the day that’s not in the BD (there were 2 lives on each venue)

    I dont know if it will be diffiferent but it will be stupid to release the same one they broadcasted because some people might not liked that one and will refrain from buying it.

    Last time an event was broadcasted on WOWOW (YK vol 11) they released a different day 🙂

    FYI. Usually, when an artist (especially Japanese one, since we’re talking about them here) release a DVD/BD of their concert after the broadcast on TV, the changes are quite a significance, especially camera angles. Other than that, some of “Talk” part in between (the break after some performances) will be bundled into one at the end.

    So for this release, I think the camera angles will change (Magia performance needs better camera angles to see what they are doing with the screen), more performances included with no break, MC will be added, and maybe some vocals editing will be added.

    Maybe they have opening logo like “Koibito no…” in far on the water tour on first performance too? We’ll see later. But the DVD/BD will totally worth it, for sure.

    Ah so our suspiciions were confirmed. But I’m not disappointed about it, in fact I like this. This concert showed off the best of Kalafina imo, and it will be great to see/hear in full quality. Together with the inclusion of the tracks left off of the WOWOW including Encore and some others, as well as the 9.17 footage, it’s worth the price.
