Japanese SoTW Poll - Ends 05/28/06 - Princess Hiro

Posted: May 14th, '06, 13:52
by Jannah
This week, we have four completely new JSoTW candidates in the poll! :mrgreen: These choices are actually nominations we've received from some of you in the past weeks. We have no volunteer seeder for Konya Hitori no Beddo de as of now, so if you can seed, please come forward. :notworthy:

If you're willing to seed any of the series in the poll, please post a reply here or in the JSOTW: Looking For Volunteer Seeders thread or PM any one of the Geinou. There are still several series which don't have any volunteer seeders, so do volunteer for those! The more seeders we have, the more variety there will be in the future JSoTW polls.

Many thanks goes out to those seeding the current JSoTW (Ima, Ai ni Yukimasu). Thank you for your support! :salut:

In the now immortal words of thetenken........

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

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? More Info Here
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.

We 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...

Reminder: You must have at least 10 posts to vote. Go on, kiddies... explore the forum a bit... :)

Since Princess Hiro is so short, could we just make that a free gimme :P

I voted for Brand, but only because I have recently seen Ai No Uta, which was excellent.

Voted for Princess Hiro. It sure has a lot of prominent cast.

Just out of curious. I noticed Princess Hiro is one special episode. If it wins the poll, is it going to be seeded for the whole month?

JSOTW = Japanese Series Of The Week.

WEEK, not month.

Since Japanese series are much shorter than their Chinese and Korean counterparts, we run the polls on a biweekly basis...
We're the exception... All the other polls are monthly... :)

by JadedAngel
:O Ahh! Such hard choices this month! I want to see Ai no Uta, but I think i will vote for Konya Hitori no Beddo de this time. It seems like it'll be very good!

Posted: May 18th, '06, 14:58
by ephesus
Yeah, I can seed Konya. But it doesn't look like it's going to win anyway.

Posted: May 18th, '06, 15:27
by alheab
.. Historical Dorama..It will be such a nice change from the commen trend
I would vote for pincess Hiromi .. Rather than the other sries not because tey are not good , It will be such a healthy change form the commonly comedian and dramatic ones ...

I can't vote bcause I a not eligible to do (Les than 10 posts ) but I just wanted to say my opnion ...

Nevertheless, Good luck to all the competitors ...

Nomination for older NHK Dramas: Tokimune Hojo & Aoi Tok

Posted: May 22nd, '06, 11:00
by goman
As the subject suggests, I would like to nominate two hard to get series from the NHK Taiga Dramas:

Tokimune Hojo
Aoi Tokugawa Sandai

I realize there are horribly long series, but that makes them hard to get as well, so featuring them as series of the week really would help.

I did a search for subbed jdrama that have 0 seeds and came up with a few suggestions for next week's poll, I haven't seen these drama mentioned for a while.

Family Values (5 episodes)
Friday's Lovers
Koukou kyoushi 1993
Salaryman Kintarou (4 seaons)
Tokyo Wankei

Maybe one of these could go on?

Posted: May 23rd, '06, 05:39
by mizune
^ Even though I personally hate it (not into melodramas), I'd really like to put up Friday's Lovers since it's one of the first series uploaded on this site and hasn't really seen any action since... the problem is finding a seeder, since it's so old...
If anbody has it and is willing to seed, please let me know (post or PM)...

Since Princess Hiro is so short, can we have "Konya Hitori no Beddo de" too if it gets 2nd place?

Posted: May 25th, '06, 03:02
by jholic
neon: i added one more for konya, but i don't think it made too much of a difference.

I really like Ai no uta and I hope it will win eventually. But my vote went to Princess Hiro because there's alot of actor I like in the serie (and I havent seen it yet)

I wonder if Double Score with Takashi Sorimachi and Toshio Manabu could enter one of the future JP SoTW polls. It has English hardsubs and it's on the JEM tracker, which is part of D-addicts^^;

This series was uploaded some months ago, but it seems that not many people noticed it, since there haven't been many downloads... I certainly didn't notice it when the torrents were uploaded ;__;

Onegai shimasu m(_ _)m and Thank you^__^

Posted: May 27th, '06, 03:22
by SakuraG89
Double Score was very good--I'd nominate it, but does Jem have all eleven episodes, or just the ten that made it to the newsgroup a while back? I don't have the REAL episode 3, just the 10 found on ABMJ.

A question--does the SOTW have to have subtitles? If not, couldn't we once a month or every other month feature one series we think is good that hasn't caught the attention of the subbers? I can think of a couple I'd like to see subbed, and if they're available for download . . .neh?

Thank you for replying^_^
I hadn't noticed that the last episode of Double Score is missing, gomen.
I know I shouldn't have asked that question (yes, I read the rule that has been quoted^^), but I wanted to try anyway. I'm sorry .__.

Yes, defintely. Both the story and cast are great.
Takenouchi Yutaka and Tokiwa Takako playing the leading roles are doing a great job.

Too bad it's pretty short, the story is mainly a historical one, pretty interesting.
