I did get some eps from your wonderful raredoramasinfo.net (that is, if you're the same xaxa). Those "behind the scenes" extras were awesome, too. Sadly the whole P2P melt...

ZemusDS,
torrents from 2006? I'm pretty sure they are all dead. + chinese videos seem to be better in quality. and they are not hardsubbed, they are mkvs (1280x720) with subtitles that could be turned off or deleted. I'll make RAW mp4s out of them.
