As some of you may have noticed with the release of the latest ToQGer episodes, the DDLs for the 1080p encodes are not entirely up to date. Unfortunately, this is due to changes at Mega that have rendered the existing DDL structure unsustainable.
What I’d done in the past was take advantage of my webhost having unlimited emails and Mega’s 50GB free accounts. This is why shows with 1080p encodes are split into two accounts, since most 1080p series take up more than 50GB over the span of 48-or-so episodes. However, recently, they instituted a change that only grants most of that 50GB of space temporarily, and reduces users down to something like 15GB of space after those free boosts expire. While I believe that the older DDL accounts created before the change are unaffected, newer accounts like the 2nd half of ToQ in 1080p aren’t able to hold enough data.
While the system I’d used to create these accounts was semi-automated, it’s definitely too clunky to continue if the storage is that far reduced. Obviously, I was abusing the free account system, so I can’t really complain here. But, this did leave me needing to decide if I was going to push for donations towards a premium account to hold all the DDLs in a single account, or seek out an alternate option.
I reached out to kamsamnida of KRDL.moe in an effort to see if it might be possible to coordinate with uploading new releases directly to the site, which is already one of, if not the best DDL source for toku around. After discussing a few hurdles for each of us to clear, we’ve begun to setup everything for transitioning the DDLs over to there. Some of the releases are already available there, mostly older completed shows.
There’s currently no ETA on when the full migration will take place, so for now, the Mega links will remain. Unfortunately, I can’t promise what, if any, new releases will have Mega DDLs from this point until the move to KRDL. I expect everything but ToQ 1080p Part 2 will be fine as those accounts were all created a few months ago, but if the adjustments are retroactive to other free accounts, a lot of files are going to go missing. UPDATE: Kyu 1080p Part 2 is also impacted, with Episode 36 just barely fitting, so once Box 4 starts, 37 and above will not be available.
If you enjoy having the DDLs, please consider throwing even a few bucks towards their server costs (a PayPal link is at the bottom of the main page or sign up for a premium account to get extra features) as kamsamnida is footing the bill for the upgrade that’s making this possible.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask them below and I’ll try and address what I can or follow up with kamdamnida to get more details where possible.

what about the 720p formats, cause I saw over at the direct download and ep 29 through 36 are still listed as undecrypted files
Are you going to be encoding Ninninger anytime soon? Someone dumped the series onto ADC a few weeks ago.
I already have the Ninninger BDMVs from before those ones showed up on ADC, however, no matter what, I wouldn’t start Ninnin until ToQ is done. But, my plan right now is to finish ToQ and then take a short break and do Go-Onger once those discs come out later this summer. If you want to dive into Ninninger right away, PocketUniverse is encoding it right now.
Does KRDL.moe have to the ability to sort shows by sub groups?
Also, does KRDL.moe have a patreon?
Not sure on either count, so I’ll pass those questions on to kamsamnida. I’d say question 2 is probably a no, just because I imagine Patreon wouldn’t allow it given the content of the site.

The download speed at the site krdl.moe is very slow (150kb/s for me) and MEGA is super fast (2mb/s for me). I’m so sad
That is a downside, but since I don’t have to worry about storage concerns with KRDL like I do now with Mega, it’s the only realistic option now.
Xing, KRDL has 3 servers currently which quite a few people share. Sometimes KRDL can be blazing fast, other times, not so much, especially around new release days. If I had the money Mega do, I’d have it a lot lot faster, promise.
