Japanese SoTW (12/10/2006) - Yasashii Jikan

Post by mizune » Nov 28th, '06, 05:01

Sorry for the delay everybody.... I just kinda forgot to make the post last night... :fear:

Anyhow, I decided to put off the SP pack idea until the next SoTW poll for a couple reasons:
1. Because the link to the last poll was posted on the main torrent page so late, I don't know how many ppl got a chance to actually see the idea and give some input.
2. A bunch of the SP choices have laure_choc as the only volunteer seeder, but since she's also seeding this week's winner (thanks! :cheers:), I didn't want to possibly bombard her on consecutive polls. Which leads me to...
3. We are always in need of more volunteer seeders! The more ppl that sign onto series, the more choices we get for future SoTWs.

If you don't know what the heck I'm talking about when I say "SP pack", please read this from the last poll:
mizune wrote: I've also been wanting to try something out for awhile now, and it looks like there are finally enough volunteer seeders to do it. What I would like to try in one of the upcoming polls is to group about 3-5 (depending on the size) of the television SPs that have been subbed and offer them together as a single SoTW contender. I always think that these shows get left in the dust pretty easily and would like to give them a chance to stay seeded just as well as regular series. What do you guys think? Any series you'd like to see in a pack? Remember to check the JSOTW: Looking For Volunteer Seeders thread for potential candidates. :)
Oh, and since a bunch of seeders jumped onto Summer Snow, I've kicked that to the curb for this poll, so to speak... :mrgreen:

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 go out to those seeding the current JSoTW (Flowers for Algernon). Thank you for your support! :salut:

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


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...

(06/14/2004: As of this date, the Series of the Week is now officially only Japanese dramas with English subtitles.)

The nominees are:

Koi Seyo Otome - torrents
Concerto - torrents
Heaven's Coins II - torrents
Yasashii Jikan - torrent

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... :)

voted for Koi Seyo Otome because I would like to see a good romantic comedy that I have never seen before, and I have been watching a lot of oldies already recently. second place would go to yasashii jikan.

my vote to Concerto 8)

and also want to norminate yankee bokou ni kaeru (which is now fully subbed but not yet in the list) :lol

about sp pack, i think it's a very good idea. you should do it once in awhile coz there're actually not that many sp with sub.

ooh, tough. All sound interesting. I think i'll vote for Concerto or Heaven's Coins 2. I'd like something pre-2000. Though Koi Seyo does interesting... I voted for Koi, and i think i was a tie-breaker! :D

Sorry, but Manhattan Love Story isn't eligible for the SoTW unless it's been subtitled someplace and I just missed it. Only series that are completely subtitled in English are eligible...

Yasashii Jikan -- it came so close last week, surely it deserves to win now.

Concerto seems like another love-triangle focused story, which I've gotten tired of - from watching so many korean drama.

Koi Seyo and Yakashii Jikan look interesting... I'll throw a vote for the latter just to widen the gap and keep concerto from winning. :P

Yeah, well I don't think you really need to worry about Concerto winning this week... :lol

Anyhow, back to the SP pack idea...
I just want to remind everybody that in order for this to work well, we're going to need volunteer seeders for these series as well. So please sign up if you can.

Also, since nobody really seems to be that interested in which SPs in particular get inserted into a pack, I guess it'll be dealer's choice....:whistling:

Cool, I never knew JEM was included in the list! I can't figure out Clubbox for the love of me, so all those dead trackers are the only way to go.

From JEM:
- Food Fight: I heard it's awful . . on the other hand, how the heck did the ending song end up being one of the best selling Japanese singles ever? So yes, I'm basing my recommendation on a song. =P
- Hero: Huge ratings. Curious.

From d-addicts:
- Odoru Daisousasen: I have watched this, it is incredible, a milestone in jdrama and looong overdue for SotW!
- The Salaryman Kintaros: If only there were more seeders out there. Is Sakura even still around? ^_^

From JTV:
- Um, nothing really. But just wondering, are their tracker numbers accurate? I'm surprised some really popular shows like Pride still have zero downloads . .

You will like this one. It was one of the first doramas I saw I absolutely loved it. It seems any show I watch these days involve architects sp... Like Abe Hiroshi's last dorama of that nature was another splendid choice.

Whoops, forgot about this...
Yasashii Jikan wins this week, so feel free to start seeding now.
But please continue seeding Flowers for Algernon for as long as possible to help others with slower connections.

I'll post up a new poll thread sometime in the next day or 2 when I get the time...
