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:

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...

My vote goes to denchi ga kireru made, it is the only series I have not seen already and it is fairly new too^^

Otherwise, I'd go for Summer Snow:)

Gocchin? Errr, I have no idea who that is or what it is, sorry :). I just had to make a couple of jpopsuki banners because I'm a total addict of them now :P. I really have to clean them up because I quickly made them while at work... don't tell my boss :D.

I'm torn between Summer Snow and Maria. On one hand I want to see Gocchin, but I've been really wanting to see Summer Snow for a very long time.....hopefully I'll be able to see both someday if I'm patient.

Maria, onegai since it didn't win last week's poll. :-)

Denchi ga Kirerumade and Maria are similar types of stories and I enjoyed both quite a bit. Maria is a bit more upbeat. If it's between those two shows, there can be no losers. Of course, Beautiful Life and Summer Snow are also good. It's interesting that all the candidates for SOW are either child-with-deadly-disease or girlfriend-with-deadly-disease shows. Everybody, vote for cancer and heart disease. :lol

Gocchin? I assume it's a contraction of Goto Maki's family name. Not really familiar with that "-chin", tho. A variation on "-chan", perhaps? Myself, I actually watched Maria for Asano Atsuko. She was great in 101st Marriage Proposal, too.

Am voting for MARIA

I'd vote for Maria if somebody would fix those darn sub files (make them into .srt files or something) for episodes 2 and 3. I can't get them to play on my Mac. Dammit. I'm sub-conversion challenged. Thanks.

So is Summer Snow at Japan-tv (http://japan-tv.afraid.org:6969/index.h ... e=4&sort=1), with 6 seeds and many more peers now. I'm dl it at a pretty decent speed too.

P/s If Beautiful Life loses, I would like to nominate it for the following week.

jholic here. yoroshiku onegaishimasu.

will try and take over for thetenken in his absence.

will be putting up the jsotw banner soon. is okumasama and yuki83 going to seed MARIA? i don't have a clue. my fingers are crossed too.

JSOTW's banner is pretty ugly, huh? that's because i have no idea how to make a good one. if you have a good screen capture (150x150), please pm me, or post it in the new JSOTW thread.
