THIS IS VERSION 2 (all episodes patched up to date and fixed) of my 10 bit HEVC / x265 reencode of [deanzel's](https://nyaa.si/?f=0&c=0_0&q=deanzel "deanzel's uploads") 38.5 gb release of Steins;Gate and its OVA, using all of the latest patched and fixed episodes he released after uploading the initial torrent. I decided to keep the Commie modified subs in his upload rather than the Steins;sub ones, simply because I prefer the typesetting on commie subs. All audio is encoded to AC3 and English audio and signs/song for dub subtitle track are default.
Here are some comparison shots of my encode vs [deanzel's encode ](https://nyaa.si/view/654349 "deanzel'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.
Huge thanks to deanzel for uploading such a high quality original version!
The self-proclaimed mad scientist Rintarou Okabe rents out a room in a rickety old building in Akihabara, where he indulges himself in his hobby of inventing prospective "future gadgets" with fellow lab members: Mayuri Shiina, his air-headed childhood friend, and Hashida Itaru, a perverted hacker nicknamed "Daru." The three pass the time by tinkering with their most promising contraption yet, a machine dubbed the "Phone Microwave," which performs the strange function of morphing bananas into piles of green gel.
Though miraculous in itself, the phenomenon doesn't provide anything concrete in Okabe's search for a scientific breakthrough; that is, until the lab members are spurred into action by a string of mysterious happenings before stumbling upon an unexpected success—the Phone Microwave can send emails to the past, altering the flow of history.
Adapted from the critically acclaimed visual novel by 5pb. and Nitroplus, Steins;Gate takes Okabe through the depths of scientific theory and practicality. Forced across the diverging threads of past and present, Okabe must shoulder the burdens that come with holding the key to the realm of time.
