Contrary to what a large amount of fans may believe, there actually is a difference.
Really, the whole point of buying anime at this point is to show support for shows we love. Because you can get pretty much any series HD online via torrenting. (It's illegal, but it's there.) from which you can burn it onto a blu ray disk. I don't necessarily agree with it, but that's just the way it is.
