Free! Dive to the Future BD Batch v2

1080p | 720p

So the Japanese BDs got uploaded a lot sooner than I thought they would. Anyway, episode 00, 01, and 02, as well as the NCOP and NCED were already encoded from the Japanese BDs, so they’re unchanged from the previous release. The rest have new encodes with better video quality. I changed nothing else. Hopefully nothing broke since I wasn’t gonna watch the entire show again when I just did a few months ago.

If you’re wondering why the encodes are a bit smaller, I didn’t change any settings. The most likely reason is the Japanese BDs have less artifacts due to having about 30-40% more bitrate, ironically making it easier to compress when encoding (especially for the OP).

Free! Dive to the Future BD Batch

1080p | 720p | Patches

The patches fix one time part of the Japanese hardsubs wasn’t masked perfectly. You can’t really see it though since the subs cover it up. Also, there’s a patch for the 1080p NCOP to add the audio.

Like I said before, I’ll v2 all the encodes if the Japanese BDs are ever uploaded. Also, as you’re probably already aware, there’s another original movie for this anime coming out later this year. I don’t imagine the BD will be out until about a year from now, and I’ll probably have to wait 6 months more for the official subs. I still plan on doing it, though.
