Hi all. It looks like this is where the lingering Ainori crowd hangs out.

Did anyone catch the Ainori special that was on yesterday afternoon? I didn't know it was on and caught the last 20 minutes by chance but missed the first hour.

Wow, we're just a few days into the poll but it looks like it might be time to crank up the seeds for the leader already. Haven't seen a blowout here for a long time, in fact I can't remember a poll where one series has had more than 50% of the votes. Looks like we might have a majority winner for o...

If they are tied for the most votes, it's most likely that they will already be seeded before the poll ends. We have a lot of nice people around here.

I think it's probably because the two most popular ones generated the interest for seeds and downloads. So.. Them getting most of the votes did end up helping.

This thread died quick . . . just like the hopes of Japan's Olympic Team.
However, Shizuka Arakawa's capture of the gold in women's figure skating reminded me of another sports J-Dorama . . . Swan no Namida, a 1989 TV drama starring Miyazawa Rie.
I sure wish mieko had continued posting that series.
