Problem with Torrage?

Is there a problem with Torrage? I haven't been able to download anything for a few days now... Torrage.com seems dead.

I can't seem to find any threads about it here... so is it just me?

Japanese subtitles for American shows?

My fiance is Japanese and although she speaks English, it's obviously much more convenient if she had some sort of テロップ/subtitles to help her out. I've been keeping up with Lo...

Just curious... there are raw versions of episode 9, 10 and 11 available as torrents... Are there soft English subs available anywhere for these episodes? I noticed that Kryptolus has only done until episode 08 for the hard subs and because I've only just stumbled across this drama (and its discuss...

I think its great idea because 1) you put alot of thought into the present and 2) its a symbol of something you both share. I don't think she'll think its cheesy or that you took the easy way out (which I believe is flowers) especially since its something thats very important to both of you. To go ...

I can relate to Densha in a way but he was just a little too meek for me. I'm not super-arrogant but I do have self-esteem and confidence in myself, which Densha didn't have, even right at the end. Not that there's anything wrong with that... it's just that I didn't really see much of myself in Dens...
