Is there ANYONE who managed to download chapters 11-12 before the idiots at Doko Demo Doa removed the download links?

Actually, did they ever post download links in the first place, except among them and their friends? Even online readers are missing these two chapters.

Dont need to be a dick, they are doing this for free and have the right to do what they want with the scanlation (cept selling) if you dont like it do it yourself, there is absolutely no reason for you to talk like that here at mu, stick your thoughts with yourself instead of trying to troll

How predictable... you use the word "idiots" once, and people immediately disregard you as a person whether you had a good reason to use it or not.

Not that I should be apologizing to you or anyone, but I've never badmouthed a scanlator before. Even if I can, and I have an axe to grind (especially when it comes to all these shoujo scanlating groups, where you are required to make 50 non-spam posts in their forums to be allowed to download their releases), I usually just mind my own business. Alas, I couldn't help it this time. It just annoys me to no end to see scanlators doing excellent work on an excellent manga, only to make it so damn elusive. What is this, the scanlation version of hide-and-seek?

Also, I know I'm not allowed to ask for downloads here. I'm just asking if there's anyone else here who managed to get these files. That's all. Looks like there still is a way to download them. Nevermind the details, thanks for the hint anyway, I'll keep searching.

PS. I'd say you're the ones who're acting all high and mighty.

if I were a manga god, I would ban you from reading any scanlations. If you are so clever, why don't you buy it, or learn japanese, it's easy.

Haha, touche.

And yes! I know what you mean! Why even bother announcing to the public that you've completed a chapter if they have almost no way of accessing it? Geez. I'm sorry, this is also a pet peeve of mine. Don't get me wrong, I admire scanslators and appreciate their work - they just sometimes can be a bit irrational (50 post mark? Come on!) And when you show the slightest signs of dissatisfaction, people get all up on your ass with their preaching. And to answer your question, no I couldn't find chapters 11 and 12 either. sad

Most scanlators for manga do it for free, its not really hard to up your post count to show your appreciation to the scanlators, just post in anything you have something to say instead of calling em idiots, if you cant do that waiting is a option when manga downloading sites or online readers have means to download those mangas, it doesnt kill to be appreciative and patient, though 50 is abit much but still its their choice,
