Zero no Tsukaima Episode 8
Seto no Hanayome Episode 21
Torrent (Edit: Link FINALLY added. It was a rather he hectic day over in our Disto department. LoL)
In case you didn't know, SaiMoe 2007 has been running for a bit (Admittedly, I failed because I didn't even know it).
In any case, Runa and Suzu both made it to Round 2 (where they shall be be completely and utterly be destroyed and stepped all over by Hinagiku...).
San-chan, Iinchou (class prez to you and me) and Maki are all in Group F, which is about one of the most interesting groups in this tournament. San will have a tough one against Shion, and assuming she goes through, it isn't going to be all smooth sailing with Tsukasa of Lucky Star waiting in the shadows to snipe assuming San gets through Souseiseki.
As for Maki and Linchou... Well, only 1 can go through. Oh well.
BTW, GO HAYATE!

Zero no Tsukaima 2 Episode 7, Seto no Hanayome Episode 20
And yes, SnH is single tracked. We're giving this idea a shot. If you come from Singapore, please use the DDLs and IRC bots we have in our server.
Edit: [%] [&Hayate] changes topic to 'Ayako ~ "Chatzilla can use XDCC?

How to use IRC
Download IRC here
Type in all the usual nicks and jazz when prompted.
Select Server (It's at the side, or click the flower thing).
We are based in Rizon.net, as is quite a few groups.
Our channel is #ayako, so type /j #ayako
Once you enter, type !releases to see the latest releases, followed by the usual prompts. (For example, ZnT Ep6 will be !znt06)
Some random stuff, like "ZnT 06 XDCC: /msg LazyTown XDCC send #26" or something will appear.
TYPE it out in the status window.
I'll make one with pictures sometime later. But it is really dummy proof. If you can get BitTorrent to work (as well as portforward), this shouldn't be too hard.
For those who have used IRC, Our server is here
Note you can't use Chatzilla because Chatzilla does not have a XDCC function. Alternatively, you can use one of our DDL links found in the channel.
Be sure to stick around and talk! We have a few regulars around with whom I enjoy chatting with.

The Senate just sat and discussed the issue at hand, and has come to a conclusion.
Don't use BitTorrent if you are in Singapore.
Unfortunately, there is NOTHING we can do. I proposed private trackers and changing the file names, but after (a very short) discussion (with the distros), the team came to the conclusion that by using BitTorrent, you are revealing your IP address to anyone who torrents that file.
Let's face it. BitTorrent was made for legal downloading of huge files, such as ocremix.org's batch songs and o2jam's full song pack. :P
We do, however, offer a host of other downloading options, such as IRC and DDLs. Yes, they could be slower than your usual BitTorrent methods (strangely), but would you rather wait an hour and watch your anime, or pay $3000? I would presume most of you are in your late teens or early twenties. Can you afford to pay $3000?
Currently, because Seto no Hanayome is licensed by ODEX (ZnT S2 and HA are not, yet), we HIGHLY encourage all fans of Seto no Hanayome to download their source via IRC FROM the respective group's channels (Note that a compromised DCC bot can be your downfall too). If you need help in downloading via the bots, most operators are more than willing to help. Just ask nicely. (Sadly, the problem with a few Singaporeans is that internet manners seem to need to be drilled in. Just ask our resident \404 on what he thinks about people with .sg prefixes.)
So, you may wonder, why am I doing this?
I have lived in Singapore for a bit of my life due to some family reasons. Loved the place. It just saddens me to see fans of Singapore are being bullied by a company which produces crap. If their releases were good, I wouldn't have mind.
But let's say that my VCD of Shakugan no Shana was one of the worst investments I've made in my life (The other being a Maximum Tune 2 unshaded attempt only to lose at Stage 78. LoL).
I fully support getting the DVDs when they are released in your area, which is why Ayako has ceased distribution of Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora and Shuffle! Memories ASAP, as well as seeds for SR2 are pretty much non-existent now. However, when I pay money for something, I expect to obtain an equal amount of happiness from it.
ODEX, obviously fails at doing so.
In any case, BitTorrent is out. IRC and DDLs all the way. All YM trackers shall, from now on, ban all IPs which originates from Singapore.
We do not want to be helping bullies in any way.

Damn you Odex.
No, I'm not hit by a fine (seeing as I am not in Singapore any more... Thank god.)
I feel for all you Singaporean Anime fans.
However, we at Your-Mom shall discuss with the members to see how fans of Singapore can continue to watch anime. I shall bring up a few proposals in our senate meeting tonight.
Hey, even our quality > theirs.
And that's saying something.....

Seto no Hanayome Episode 19
Note that there is this team called "devils lair" who (I think) converts our mkv softsubs into an avi hardsubbed format. We do not claim to be devils lair (There is a difference in the names! wtf no wai?), nor will we accept any responsibility for any harm/damages you or your PC may suffer if you download from devils lair.
You have been warned.
Why do we not release it in avi hardsubs?
Because Ayako will release it.
When they get around to it.
Note that most of the notes actually are background information. I kept them brief, but if you want more information...
Wiki link to the Ikedaya Jiken
Wiki link to Shinsengumi
I must admit, my japanese knowledge of history is pretty terrible. It took me quite a bit to get them. Hope I got them right.
Zero no Tsukaima 2nd Season Episode 6
We're late. Yes.
I CAN'T STOP SWEEPING MINES!
Edit: Links DO work. Right click --> Save as. Your (IE) browser is reading them as they are when they should be a downloadable torrent files.
I discovered that this issue affects Microsoft IE browsers. I highly recommend ditching that piece of crap (as demonstrated here), and Get Firefox, which does not have this issue.
