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
Kuro: There's only 4 chapters in each book I guess? And since someone scanned chapters 1-3, I just had to scan 4 to get all of volume 1 ready. I'm in the progress of cleaning it up. Also, it's japanese!

Kuro: VOLUME 16. IS POSTED +0+

alpha: Woow, FANG is probably the sec0nd series (with first being Yamato) I'm most excited for! At least by judging from pictures it looks stunning.

alpha: And thanks for Volume 16; it's nice to see Hougen-sama again. Hahahaha x D
Sept 1, 2018 2:32:12 GMT -7
Kuro: Hopefully it holds up to your expectations. Looking through, it doesn't look as exciting as I thought. Sooo much focus is on the humans ;;

bree: Since I've forgotten how to make a post/thread, how would y'all feel about making a petition for a GDW anime reboot? Unless there's already been an attempt.

alpha: Nah, I'd rather see GDWO animated.

tenrou: over the years theres been many an attempt at those bree, not a lot of people sign up and they don't get attention :C

tenrou: tbh i could see the first wars getting a 2-5min chibi short, doubtful but
Sept 14, 2018 10:25:44 GMT -7
bree: ah okay! I understand. And TBH I'd love to see the first wars or GDWO animated!

Kuro: Might have to wait a bit more. Fanta was given chapters for the missing TLW stuff and since it's brand new, it's higher priority. I think she has work too, so it makes sense to give her more time than usual o:
