I don't think it's a good ide...

JP boys probably stands for J-Pop boys? As in the Johnny's Jimusho boys, most likely? As in, Matsumoto Jun, Kamenashi Kazuya, Akanishi Jin... I can't remember them all. But I'm sure it's not escaped everyone's notice that all legit, online promo material involving a Johnny's boy never has their real...

You might want to contact WithS2 DIRECTLY, via their website, rather than posting here. But here we go. First of all, did you keep the .srt file extension on the subtitles? That's necessary. Second of all, you've stated nothing about your video player and codecs. I suggest switching the latest versi...

I am at Aja-Aja right now, and also visited earlier today and yesterday, and have had no problems with the website. But, like tsurashi313, I am using Firefox with AdBlockPlus installed and enabled. Hmmm. But yeah, it looks like ABP is blocking 5 items. In the meantime, try installing some adblock so...

Thanks for the update! I was wondering why DramaWiki (and FansubWiki too) had gone down all of a sudden today.

I hope it's resolved soon.

I dunno groink, there's a bit of both in either fandom, isn't there? I know anime fans that are die-hard fans of certain voice actors. I fangirl over certain actors and actresses, but when I'm picking and choosing what dramas to watch in the new season I look at the basic storyline first and not the...

I'm a weirdo. I've watched Moto Kare 3 times, and Kimi wa Petto twice, but that was awhile ago. I tried to re-watch Lunch Queen recently but only got through the first 3 or 4 episodes before I got too busy with other things, and a bit bored. I usually just watch things once and delete them. I'm with...

This is a bit of a random question, but does anybody recognize where they filmed the part of episode 8 near the beginning with Miyama and Keita just as they've returned to Tokyo? The scenes I'm talking about take place from about 11:30 minutes to 14:30. I was just struck by how pretty and green that...

Kind of bumping this because it's currently the Japanese Series of the Week(s). This was one of the first dorama's that i watched, and seeing as the JSOTW inspired me to watch for a THIRD time. Yes, 3rd. It's definitely one of the best dramas I have ever seen. Not life-altering, but worth watching m...

Just finished watching episode 2. This is one of the most obvious dramas I have seen in a long time, perhaps ever. And yet it's so captivating! I think what will make it interesting in the long run is to see what other obstacles Eiji and Mio have to go overcome after he discovers she's not blind, wh...

I scanned through this entire thread to see if this was mentioned yet, but it hasn't been! After I began watching episode 4, I got curious about Matsuoka Mitsuru (Kazuo, Taro's father) and looked around. Just found out he's the singer for a band called Sophia. I don't know them though, but it explai...

There are NO ENGLISH SUBS for the second Trick movie yet. It just came out on DVD a little over a month ago!

There's a torrent for the RAW DVD rip on FSS. (Are we allowed to discuss movies on other torrent sites?).

A sub looks to be in the work, although it might be a little while.

Creating GIF Images/Avatars From Video

I recall seeing a tutorial for doing this once on here somewhere, but I can;t find it now using search... So I'm wondering if anyone could share a tutorial for doing it? Or at least suggest a vague method or perhaps a program to try? I'm aware of using many screenshots and a program like Adobe Premi...
