[HELP] Getting rid of ghosting on an old anime DVD release
The video source is Japanese DVD (29.970) of an old anime series. It's interlaced and has ghosting.
Interlaced check result: bottom field first

I've tried to use settings: TIVTC (vapoursynth)
Deinterlacer: QTGMC (preset='very slow')
TDecimate: Mode 1, Cycle 5.
                 Hybrid: blend 30p -> 24p, keep 24p

While it's being de-interlaced good, I don't know how to get rid of ghosting...
I need the output frame-rate 23.976 since I want to upscale it afterwards in Topaz.

I've tried to search in the forums but I guess every problem needs to look into individually.

I've also read that it's possible to bob the frames and then sRestore them to 23.976. Would it help in this matter? I also don't know how to use sRestore since I can't find it among the filters (vapoursynth).

Source video excerpt from a DVD:

I'd be grateful for any suggestions on how to get rid of ghosting.
sRestore is under: "Filtering->Avisynth / Vapoursynth->Frame->Reduction->sRestore", but it's broken in Vapoursynth (see:
I also doubt that you can get rid of those blends with sRestore or IVTC, since it looks like those blends are not created by frame interpolation.
So removing ghosting by throwing out non-blended frame won't work.
Even when using sRestore in Avisynth and then lowering the frame rate to 8
When bobbing the content and looking at the preview, one can see the blends are already parts of the separated fields.

Ps.: Potentially using ExBlends might he.p
