My Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters raws page has just been updated with several more raws. Episodes 1, 2, 5, 6, 9-11, 24, 30-33, 42, 45, 47-51, 53, 59, 71, 93, 94, 185-188, 190, 191, and 194-224 all received at least one additional raw. Most of these raws came from the Zero-Raws torrents on the AniRena tracker.
If you recall, all of the YGO DM episodes already had at least one raw available, so today’s additions are all alternate-versions raws (that is, raws with different file sizes and video/audio properties than what was previously available on that list). So, if you’ve been looking to download a certain raw episode from MegaUpload and haven’t found a version that you like, take a look at the list again. Some of the episodes even have three different versions to choose from!
These files were uploaded thanks to the generosity of Janime’s DARKMASTER, Gato, GoldenUmi, and myself.
If you’ve dropped by anytime between the end of April and today, you’ve undoubtedly noticed a picture of sad Rebecca and Anzu stickied to the top of my front page. They were sad because a bunch of the Duel Monsters raws had dead links. Well, the sticky is gone now because all of the dead links have been replaced! Hooray! Head over to my DM raws page and grab any raws that you might be missing!
The following episodes had dead links and were re-uploaded: 34-41, 55-58, 60-69, 72-78, 81-89, 91, 93, 95-97, 103-120, and 128. Whew!
All of the dead links were replaced with raws downloaded from the Zero-Raws torrents. I’m aware that the original dead-link episodes had raws that were not from those torrents. However, I don’t have any of those original raws on my computer and I don’t know where to get them. If you downloaded any of the above-listed raws in the past and would like to share them, that would be great! Just contact me and let me know. Giving people a selection to choose from is always a good thing.
In addition to re-uploading the broken-link episodes, the following episodes also received an alternate version raw (i.e. a file that’s different than what’s already on the list): 70, 121, 122, 126, 127, 136-138, 141, 144, 192, and 193.
All of the videos for this massive raws update (the largest such update since I first decided to make the DM raws available!) were uploaded by Janime’s Gato, gba10000, Geno, and myself.
Thanks for all of your patience in waiting for the dead links to be fixed. I hope no one was seriously inconvenienced by the wait. Enjoy the raws!

In the past, I’ve been asked several times about whether there was a torrent for all of the Duel Monsters raws. Each time, my response was the same: I didn’t know of any. Well guess what? There are torrents!
As it turns out, since the middle of December 2008, a group called Zero-Raws had been scouring Japanese P2P networks for Duel Monsters raws. While I had heard of this group before, I thought that that they released their finds only through fserves or bots on IRC. I only recently found out that the DM raws could be found on the AniRena.com tracker. It feels pretty good to be wrong!

The raws from these torrents aren’t necessarily the same raws found on the DM raws page. If you want to know whether a certain raw from the torrents is the same as a raw from the DM raws page, a quick (but imperfect) way of doing so is to compare their file sizes (which can found in the torrent’s file list and on the raw’s MegaUpload page).
Enjoy the raws! Don’t forget to seed for as long as you can!
Update (November 6, 2010): Links to unofficial downloads/streams have been removed.
