The show must be digitized from VHS. There's heavy graininess and the screen shakes a bit all along.
Already got the DVD ISO from ADC, so there's no problem with the Audio, Vobsubs and Chapters,
but the Video...I've tried [O-A]'s and [C-W]Sakura's DVDrip, it sucks, DVD video sucks; or else, why would I bother to do a remux on my own?? ...720p would definitely be much better. Am I making sense?
Then recently I've got a 720p version from an unknown source. It's in 8-bit, crf 20.
Its size is much smaller than Coalgirls' encode.

Here are the screenshot comparisons:
There is a color difference. Coalgirls seems a bit sharper and has more details(of course it is ).
But the problem is, it's so big that I don't even feel like to download it :<
I kinda wanna share this dual audio remux with you, because I know currently this show has no dual audio in HD. But my UL speed is low and I'm not accessible to many filehosts(due to my location and regional blocks from my ISP), and size does matter for me, I wanna make it as much small.
So now I'm asking you guys for advice. Which encode do you prefer? Do you think this 'unknown source' encode acceptable?
Or else, perhaps should I just upload the DVD AC3 AudioTracks? Thanks.
