Subs: eng, Saizen (re-timed and edited by me)
Rescaled (nnedi3), lightly denoised, debanded scene-by-scene, applied anti-aliasing and grain, then zoned problematic scenes. Detail- and texturemasked. Subs are lightly delocalized from the original Saizen script and lightly edited. I changed back to nnedi3 only for the rescale because the encode times on this toaster were way too long with a merge. This episode featured the most disgusting fog-induced banding I have ever seen. Shit looked like bandworms crawling across my screen for several minutes and sadly could only be alleviated with a deband that erases some detail (see comparison image 4). Other banding was easy to deal with however (see comparisons 3 & 5).
Huge thanks to Koopz for letting me use his server to host my encodes, as well as to those who've helped me out by sending suggestions.
