This is my 10 bit HEVC / x265 reencode of [CBM's](https://nyaa.si/?f=0&c=0_0&q=%5BCBM%5D "CBM's uploads") 18.5 gb release of Knights of Sidonia season 1, with all audio encoded to AC3. Japanese audio and English subtitle track are default.
Here are some comparison shots of my encode vs [CBM's release](https://nyaa.si/view/697843 "CBM's encode")
Obviously there are some reductions in visual quality compared to the original in all my uploads, these screenshots should help you decide whether the reduction in quality is worth my far lower file sizes.
Keep the file size differences in mind.
After destroying Earth many years ago, the alien race Gauna has been pursuing the remnants of humanity—which, having narrowly escaped, fled across the galaxy in a number of giant seed ships. In the year 3394, Nagate Tanikaze surfaces from his lifelong seclusion deep beneath the seed ship Sidonia in search of food on the upper levels, only to find himself dragged into events unfolding without his knowledge.
When the Gauna begin their assault on Sidonia, it's up to Tanikaze—with the help of his fellow soldiers and friends Shizuka Hoshijiro, Izana Shinatose, and Yuhata Midorikawa—to defend humanity's last hope for survival, and defeat their alien foes. Sidonia no Kishi follows Tanikaze as he discovers the world that has been above him his entire life, and becomes the hero Sidonia needs.
