This is my 10 bit HEVC / x265 reencode of [this](https://nyaa.si/view/1063759) 47.7 gb release of the Space Adventure Cobra Movie. Video has been downscaled to 1080p, audio has been encoded to AC3, and ASS subs have been added. I also removed burned in black bars from the top and bottom of the screen.
The source for this release is meant to be HDR, but has not been mapped to SDR displays, so this release, like the source, will have somewhat muted colours. Regardless of this, the improvement in image clarity/quality is worth the loss in saturation in my opinion, but judge for yourself based on the screenshots.
Here are some comparison shots of my encode vs [the source](https://nyaa.si/view/1063759)
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.
The black bars I removed from my release will cause the screenshots to not line up perfectly unfortunately, though in this case I'd say my release is fairly indistinguishable from the source anyway, other than the extra sharpness 4k gives the source in practice.
Keep the file size differences in mind.
Cobra, a notorious space pirate, is enlisted by bounty hunter Jane to rescue her sister from the strange being known as Crystal Boy, but then finds himself drawn into a complex struggle over the fate of a mysterious wandering planet.
