These were not scanned, cleaned, or edited by Ginga Scans. These are downloads found and shared by Mako that we are putting up for others to use as they want. Share the downloads wherever you want and use them however you want since they are not ours, but were made and distributed by the anonymous owner of the volumes. These are RAWs, meaning no English text, no translations, just the original Japanese text and everything. Special thanks to Mako for finding and sharing the downloads.
This contains the complete set of volumes 1 through 17.
The downloads themselves were hosted on sites with dangerous malware, so I cleaned out the zip files, renamed them without the really long 'excnn_10a_yaddayadda" titles so you can organize them more easily in your computers, and uploaded them to our scanlations hosting site for everyone to download.
If there are any problems with these downloads, meaning missing pages or covers or even volumes, unfortunately there is nothing we can do since we didn't scan these.

Odd. So far it's working for me; I'll try to mimic it and get a result, thanks for the heads-up, 18! Do you mean once it fully downloaded onto your computer is when it says it doesn't exist? While my file is downloading, any screenshots of the error saying they don't exist can help me identify it in case it doesn't give me the same issue on my computer
Excellent! Thank you so much, Mako, and the original scanner for these
I'm currently downloading the latest zip and will let you know how it goes. I can't seem to get the first zips to download fast enough, I wondered if you changed your system locale to Japanese if they would unzip without corrupting.
edit: Hmm, I'm currently having issues downloading any of the Zips right now. They keep timing out. I'll try again a bit later.

Okay! So here's the scoop on why these things aren't working.
The titles in the original RAWs of the files are in Japanese. I run Windows 7. Windows 7 has this obnoxious flaw of thinking foreign aplhabets or symbols makes the files corrupted and will not allow you to download them.
The test one has only volume 1 (I found the volumes 2, 3, 4 and 5 in the original, but they didn't zip into my test one for some reason so they will be added in the new and actual 1-17 zips) and is working because it does not have the Japanese text in it.
The volumes have been striked with lines because they're still not fixed. My internet was absolute shit yesterday so every time I tried uploading the fixed zips, it kept freezing and refreshing with every internet hiccup.
I will try again to upload all of the zips, which will be all separated into their individual volumes instead of in big packs, making it faster to upload and download. Thanks again for putting up with this, guys, my apologies for my internet.
I managed to download volume 10-17 and unzip without any problems. I have my system locale set to Japanese (usually for installing Japanese games). If users just switch the locale temporarily they shouldn't have any problems
Great scans too! I'm looking forward to viewing them after work

I'm glad they worked! The problem is I doubt most members here would know how to switch the locale, so it'll still be easier to just reupload them without those issues without getting an outpour of questions on how to switch and why the files won't open

That's what I'm thinking, since they're very similar to the anonymous volume scans of SSY, GNG and GDW that we found and used. Perhaps they'll soon be out with the rest of the GDWO volumes? That'll be pretty cool so people can finally see what's going on
alpha: Yea, but it's not downloadable

regnant: Pretty much everything is either here, GB, or on the old Silver Fang Fanhouse. It'd still be nice for people to have a single place to find it all though. I'd be willing to link to that post from the Reader
Nov 15, 2018 8:05:39 GMT -7
regnant: Just be sure that anything behind a login (like GB) is linked to still behind that login. Some people don't want their work out there for any passerby to download (hence the login on the Reader itself)
Nov 15, 2018 8:06:35 GMT -7
regnant: Actually... I might go ahead and do this if you don't mind. I can keep it behind the Reader login wall, and link directly to the topics where people are posting their work

tenrou: if you need anything from sff i can get that, or if anythings down. i might have missing stuff on my harddrive too, i usually keep the uploaders name with it
Nov 15, 2018 11:38:42 GMT -7
regnant: I'll send you a message with what I can find and then we can add to it

alpha: Hey, if you don't mind update.. How far is Weed17? @kuro
Nov 16, 2018 9:07:10 GMT -7
Kuro: around page 120, so about 80ish to go ^^

alpha: Thanks for update!

katieb1650: Hey sorry, not sure if anyones asked about this but, it looks like the download to "My First BIG Special Volume 1 (The Birth of Weed) " isn't working. Does anyone have a working link of it? I've never read it and I'd like to!
Nov 20, 2018 17:18:56 GMT -7
regnant: I believe that volume is just volume 1 and a bit of volume 2 with some extra art. Nothing too special about it. I know there are scans of the official english volume 1-3 around on the big manga sites.
Nov 21, 2018 8:52:15 GMT -7
katieb1650: Ahhh ok I wasn't sure how much extra stuff was included. Thanks for that link, it was a really interesting read!

shadoukun: It's so good to be back here! Can't wait for the next chapters of GNG
Nov 23, 2018 8:32:27 GMT -7
alpha: The GNG is already finished by another scanlation team, so there's no need to wait! You can find the scans in silverfangreader.com
Nov 23, 2018 10:43:07 GMT -7
shadoukun: Yeah but I need an access code ;w; Anyone know where to get it?
Nov 23, 2018 10:58:31 GMT -7
tenrou: send regnant a pm, its not shared publicly so we can protect the scans from being posted on sites like mangafox
Nov 23, 2018 12:13:14 GMT -7
tenrou: and for the gng scans, they admins are reuploading them at some point, probably along with the last volume of gng? but its not finished yet, and no one sure when that is
