We know how much this show means to its fans so we went
Plus Ultra Hinokami Kagura on this one to make it the best encode we possibly could. The outline of the filtering scripts are based on Kaleido’s with dedsec modifying most of it. It involves descaling, scene-filtered anti-aliasing, dehaloing, credit masking and adaptive grain.
In the 1080p encode, the video was reupscaled to 1080p with a better algorithm than what most video players use to ensure the best quality. However, the sizes went out a little over the usual. If you prioritize quality over file size, go for this one.
The 855p release was left at the native resolution and encoded with more ‘efficient’ settings to bring down the file size. This encode is meant to be the equivalent of 720p, except we didn’t rescale it as it would’ve messed up the line art. If file size is more important for you, go for this. Use a good video player, like mpv, for the best experience.
Update: The encode is now updated with Kaleido-Flax’s BD subtitles.

ufotable: we don’t pay our taxes but we make good anime
My little demon sister can’t be this cute
The characters will narrate literally every single thing that happens in real-time, just in case you’re blind and/or really stupid.
Adapted by ufotable so you know it’ll be good.
Ufotable really outdid themselves with this first episode. The animation is SPECTACULAR and I can’t wait for what’s next!
First episode really gave me feels 😢
Demon Slayer? More like Heart Slayer Nezuko
