Japanese Series of the Week 12/27/04 - One Million Stars

Post by thetenken » Dec 13th, '04, 14:21

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST. IF YOU DO NOT, YOU MAY BE LIABLE TO MY EXPRESSIONS OF DISPLEASURE.

06/14/2004: As of this date, the Series of the Week is now officially Japanese series only.

Taking nominations for the next series of the week. Let me know what you want to add to the poll and I'll add it. From this point forward only series that have a volunteer seeder will be put up into the poll. People can nominate whatever they want, but the series won't become a poll option until there is a volunteer seeder...

PLEASE NOMINATE AND VOTE ONLY FOR THE DRAMAS OFF THE COMPLETED DRAMAS LIST:
http://www.d-addicts.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3500

Last time's runner-ups:

Food Fight - http://jdorama.com/drama_487.htm
Shopping Hero - http://jdorama.com/drama.707.htm
News no Onna - http://jdorama.com/drama.279.htm

Others:

One Million Stars Falling From the Sky - http://jdorama.com/drama.657.htm

Previous Series of the Week:

Oyaji
Otousan
Attic Cat
Koi ga Shitai x3 (Where is Love?)
Strawberry on the Shortcake (S.O.S.)
Cheap Love
Big Wing
Hotman
Sutaa no Koi
From the Heart
Love Generation
A Sleeping Forest
Story of One Century
Friends
Younger Men
Merry Christmas in Summer
Shota no Sushi
Koibumi
Waterboys
Aoi Tori
Meguri Ai
Konna Koi no Hanashi

What is a series of the week?
Since there are now a substantial number of torrents on this site, we have implemented a "Series of the Week," where we could dedicate most of the bandwidth to a particular series during that week. This helps in a couple of ways:

1. People will know what series are available and have seeds, rather than just waiting and hoping for them to be seeded at some later date.

2. For those seeders who have DVD burners and have already burnt their collections to DVD/CD, then with the series of the week they know which series can be pulled off of DVD to help seed, minimizing troublesome multiple DVD loading.

3. Constantly re-circulates older torrents back into view, and focuses bandwidth and demand toward those specific torrents, rather than having people request series across the board.

Remember, D-Addicts was started for the community, and being a part of the community means sharing. If you don't share, then everyone loses (refer to JEM's dropping of Cdramas), and a good thing open to all may become a private party.

I take no responsibility for deleting poll entries if there are no seeds. No complaints, as this is a community effort. If the community doesn't want to share, then oh well...

voted and done...
"News no onna" I've never seen so I guess it's a good idea to get this one up there since so many want to see it and have asked for it for so long. :D

Hehe. I just finished downloading most of the episodes (except for 11) of "Million Stars Falling from the Sky" since I braved the slow download speeds and the constant waiting for the few seeders who were kind enough to seed for me. Sigh. It was a labor of love to see more of KimuTaku. :wub:

Anyway, I'll be able to help seed this series come next year when I get my fast internet speed back.

Food Fight.... Will it ever win?

The KimuTaku effect hasn't helped Food Fight win yet. He is not the star you see though!

I have Food Fight and will help seed it someday.... :unsure:

I know what you mean. I'm a Tsuyoshi Kusanagi fan more than anything :wub: , so I feel sorry for the guy. Hmmm. I have Food Fight burned on DVD, and have already gone through one cycle of reseeding it. I may just pull it off tomorrow, and do another seeding cycle barring any freak power outages or anything :lol , SotW or not, if folks are interested. It is Christmas, after all.

Meanwhile, I voted for News no Onna. I have some of the encodes for it already on my disk, and I need to finish up some of these incomplete series, because I'm starting to run out of disk space again. :cry:

I already have (but am still voting for the excellent) A Million Stars Falling From The Sky, so I would like to nominate Suekko Chonan Ane Sannin in the hopes that someone else will nominate it for next time.

I love Fukatsu Eri! :D

I'm not the official announcer of any winning series, but since it looks like One Million Stars won by a landslide, I'll go ahead and begin seeding it. My upload speed is capped at 30 KB/sec, so please be nice and leave your windows open for awhile. I'll start with episodes 1, 2, and 3 this morning, and reassess this evening.

And while I'm seeding, maybe I'll finally get around to watching that one! It looks really good. :P

I would nominate Ice World, Itazura na Kiss or Say You Love Me for the next series of the week. But it seems Ice World files are not uploaded here in D-Addicts.

Ice World's torrents were wiped long ago by Ruroshin's auto-prune system. However, the complete series has been uploaded here before, so if someone volunteers to reup it, it can be nominated. I'll second that nomination btw... I remember seeing the torrents being upped when I first joined, but I was an idiot and decided not to download that series. Doh!

Ice World

I would volunteer to upload Ice World, if the version I have (Captured & Encoded by "MakDomyu"/English subtitles by Nippon Golden Network) is the only subbed version available. But this version is very poor quality - about a C-. I'm hoping someone has a better version! :roll
