        That's definitely something to keep in mind when the BD release comes out seeing that there's no obvious censorship in the broadcast. It's the case of the show adding those ecchi stuff with the home video release rather than have something obscuring it on TV.

          Good to know. This would make me more interesting in buying this series if Sentai Filmworks releases it uncensored so I can support creators.

            I just realized after reading carefully about uncensored version that I feel necessary to point out. Those were bundled with Japanese manga. I looked around and it seems that stand-alone Japanese home video has not been set yet.

            When something is bundled with manga, it is usually difficult to license for U.S. home video. So there's chance that we may not get those uncensored version.

            We'll see.

              ^ Good point. Should have clarified that more. As for the JP home video release, it's more likely to be 1 set (maybe BD-Box) instead 2+.

                That is correct. It's important to point out that Domestic Girlfriend is not being released on disc in Japan.
                The manga releases this year bundle codes to watch the uncut episodes on an app called PlayPic, and that's the only way to buy the anime in Japan.

                So, unless there are plans of a disc release announced in Japan sometime in the future (the anime's official site doesn't even have a section for Blu-ray or DVD) then presumably, Sentai Filmworks' future home video release may be the first disc release of this series in the world.

                We can only hope they'll be able to use the uncut footage.

                  Sounds like Fairy Tail 2014 but with vouchers included instead of DVDs.

                      There was never any question that this show would be dubbed, though I was expecting it to happen sooner. In any case, given the packed schedule in Houston that it makes sense to wait until the end of the season so that the recording schedule can be done the same way as with the way they have done things in the past.
