This is a test of using Waifu2x on actual anime video, rather than still images.
This up-scales the OP (no credits) for Sakura Trick from the Bluray 1080p release to 4k and clears up the "noise", creating an impressively crisp video.
The Yuzu dance sequence at 0:43 seconds was up-scaled with reduced "noise" removal due to Waifu2x's noise reduction actually increasing the noise level for this particular segment. This shows that using Waifu2x will require some inspection and editing for best results, it isn't a perfect blanket-solution.
Sakura Trick is particularly ideal for Waifu2x due to its solid shape art style and use of simple background elements and shapes.
