This is a 10 bit HEVC / x265 reencode of [Catar's](https://nyaa.si/user/Catar "CTR's profile") 23.3 gb release of Highschool of the Dead (H.O.T.D.), with all audio encoded to AAC to keep the dual audio tracks consistent with each other. This show has quite a grainy / old zombie movie-like aesthetic, so I had to bump up bitrates for this release to keep it all looking clean; hence the larger file sizes.
Here are some comparison shots of my encode vs [CTR's encode ](https://nyaa.si/view/923743 "CTR's encode")
Keep the file size differences in mind.
It happened suddenly: The dead began to rise and Japan was thrown into total chaos. As these monsters begin terrorizing a high school, Takashi Kimuro is forced to kill his best friend when he gets bitten and joins the ranks of the walking dead. Vowing to protect Rei Miyamoto, the girlfriend of the man he just executed, they narrowly escape their death trap of a school, only to be greeted with a society that has already fallen.
Soon, Takashi and Rei band together with other students on a journey to find their family members and uncover what caused this overwhelming pandemic. Joining them is Saeko Busujima, the beautiful president of the Kendo Club; Kouta Hirano, an otaku with a fetish for firearms; Saya Takagi, the daughter of an influential politician; and Shizuka Marikawa, their hot school nurse. But will the combined strength of these individuals be enough to conquer this undead apocalypse?
