**Note:** This v3 corrects some minor encoding artifacts and most of the residual blended frames leftover from the v2.
Font styling for the dialogue was also modified to be more pleasing to read.

The file-size increased somewhat as a result of the encoder settings changed but it can't be helped.
This should be the last revision of this project (I hope).

I made this rip because I was dissatisfied with the old encode by SSP-Corp. RAW DVD sourced on RuTracker was trash.
Blended frames, dot crawl, and over-sharpening with strong haloing which all needed to be reduced and eliminated.
**Filters used:** FineDehalo / Checkmate
**Source Before & After:** http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/130084
**Encode settings:** ref=16 / crf=15 / preset=very slow
**Comparison (v2):** http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/130086/
Subs were retimed & styled from SSP-Corp's release by me, and lightly edited for OCR errors and some missing lines.
**Please remember to seed! :)**
