How to Enhance and Upscale Anime Videos to 4K

I'm trying to restore/improve the quality of Anime movies and TV series. Do you have any suggestions for Enhancer or Upscaler for Anime?

Have you seen the early classic animations like Aim For The Ace, Dragon Ball Z, My Neighbor Totoro, Yu Yu Hakusho? They are great vintage anime shows or movies to watch in the 1980s and 1990s. Although some of the animations are a lot grainier and less crisp, they are great classics and regarded as some of the best anime of all time. If you want to review your favorite classic animes in your childhood, but only to find that some of them are too old (most of them were produced in 480P) to watch on your 4K monitors, what comes to mind might be AI Anime Upscaler.

Some of the old-school animes were shot in 24 FPS, so the Frame Interpolation is a form of video processing to make the flow more fluid and avoid display motion blur, distortion, and fake slow-motion effects. It helps to increase the frame rate and improve the overall quality of animation to make it appear even better than the original.

Except for AI Frame Interpolation, there are other ways to enhance and improve the video quality of anime.
