Dual-audio remux featuring my own 1080p encodes and modified DDY subtitles. Filtering comes down to rescaling, anti-aliasing, dehaloing, adaptive denoising and debanding. 1080p elements such as credits were excluded from filters that would otherwise damage them. Previously I used the encodes from Beatrice-Raws, but after determining I could achieve much better results with mbtree=1 for this particular source (both in terms of quality and size), I chose to do my own encodes instead. Massive thanks to Moodkiller for allowing me to encode this release on his rig.
I improved a handful of signs (plus added one of my own), adjusted some dialogue lines and fixed several script/title inconsistencies. If you’re familiar with DDY’s release, you might have noticed they decided not to include the previews (they’re not even present in the encodes). While I can’t say I care about previews that much, I felt obligated to include full translations for the sake of completeness, which proved to be quite tricky and time-consuming.
For episodes 1-11, I utilized the preview translations from Doki’s release (which was never finished). I was able to find german subtitles by fansub group Chinurarete for episodes 12-25, which EJF and I translated back to English with the help of several other individuals. Thanks to all involved for helping out.
The previews were not dubbed, so I was left with two choices really. Either ignore the problem and have dub-watchers deal with a preview segment that has absolutely no audio, or include the Japanese audio and subtitles (to atleast make something out of it). After discussing it with some people, I chose the latter. And while the sudden change in audio language might be jarring, I would argue it's better than nothing. If you absolutely don't wish to hear the Japanese voices, I suggest you simply exit the video when the preview starts.
