I'm also working on a color correction project of the Italian DVDs. My project will be better because ESRGAN has inherent frame continuity issues because the AI isn't aware of what comes before or after each frame. My project consists of manual color grading using Vegas Pro. Color correction consists of three phases: white balance, hue shifting, and curve correction. This, in combination with proper encoding, will lead to the best result possible. In addition to my profile picture, here are some examples of the white balancing work done so far: SM | Slowpoke Pics If anyone is interested in helping here are some tutorials:
11 episodes have been white balanced so far. Any help would be appreciated because including the specials there are 205 episodes total to correct. Collaboration is necessary for this project to succeed. Send me a pm for a server invite for the project after you've watched the tutorials.

It must also be said that sapphire has upscaled in the slowest and least optimized way
Someone made a comparison between a normal and fast model on a GTX 750 TI. With a 480p video, the upscaling speed was 0.04 fps for a normal model and 0.93 fps for a fast model
And there is another way to make it even faster (docker)
Any update on the project. Recently I started to get into playing around with the ESRGAN upscale. There are 2x or 4x upscale models in the community database. The 4x doesn't work well with old anime and very few 2x work gives enough sharpness comparing to your samples.

Honestly, I think you and this youtuber called Eric McCloud are my miracle when it comes to how the upscaling of Sailor Moon is done right AND with color corrections
Because of frame continuity issues, it's not done right. Not only that but what is used to train the model has inconsistent colors.
