Series of the Week 07/05/04: Friends/Story of One Century

Post by thetenken » Jun 22nd, '04, 15:57

*employs Chairman Kaga voice*

If memory served me right, the series of the week has always been more of a two week event, with seeders and leechers working throughout the two weeks to spread the drama to all known corners of mankind. This week, I have something a little different in mind...

Since our esteemed voters have voted me as to decide what the special series will be this week, I thought to myself, "Haven't we had enough KimuTaku? Shouldn't we have some better acted dramas with more serious themes?" Although that thought was ever dominant on my mind, I realized that there would be a fangirl revolution if we went without some KimuTaku or renai dramas...

With these thoughts, I conjured up this solution...

This week's Series of the Week is this!

Friends
http://jdorama.com/drama_599.htm

AND...!!!

Story of One Century
http://jdorama.com/drama_506.htm

With a KimuTaku lookalike for the fangirls and Fukakyon for the fanboys, we're set in regards to the renai quotient. With Matsushima Nanako and Watabe Atsuro, we're good on the good acting and dramatic fronts. A twofold solution, making this truly a Series of the Week (2 series over 2 weeks divided by 2 = 1 Series per Week?!?).!

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:

Younger Men - http://www.jdorama.com/viewtopic_3702.htm and http://www.kikutv.com/shows/younger_men/index.html

Others:


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

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 you're SOL.

I'll seed L'Oiseau Bleu if there's another volunteer. The HQ files are just a little hard for me to manage by myself. :P

---Edit: oops, looks like I never finished downloading episode 11, so I'd be able to seed 1-10... Someone else would have to take over for 11 though.

Please read the entire post. Attic Cat was a FORMER SotW. It is not being voted on as the new SotW.

Sheesh, iceberri must have a lot of free time. First post!

I would also seed aoi tori if it were to win, but I think it is too soon for it to be sotw. It just completed. I think there should be at least a month or two between completion and sotw reseeding unless a lot of people are missing a significant number of eps. All the torrents are still here, half of them are being seeded, and there are very few peers in the "swarms". OTOH, we seem to be running out of sotw contenders. I think we are starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel here :).

Maybe we should just give up hope with YM. I think it would even lose against a "no series of the week this week" option. No doubt ice world will be nominated again. I wonder if it will get any seeders though. I may have to download the first ep of that one to check it out but I don't generally care for the mystery jdramas. I prefer the typical love story ones. Hardly anyone voted last week. I wonder if we will get an even lower voter turnout this week. Maybe we should have a third option "whichever: I really don't care".

I think for series like From the Heart and Star no Koi, there wasn't a significant time period between its completion date and the time it was elected. Actually, in those cases, it's probably likely to garner votes for people who missed out on particular episodes, and since it only recently finished, there's bound to be more interest than in something that hasn't been dug up in a long time. Whether that is true or not will reflect itself in the votes, eh? If L'Oiseau Bleu does not win this time, it might in the next, or even the following one. What's important here is that we do have options -- let the public decide the rest.

I hardly think we're "scraping the bottom of the barrel" at this point. There are many jdrama series that haven't yet been sotw.. we're just lacking the volunteers necessary to add them to the poll! If you just look at the list of completed dramas, the jdrama list is considerable, while the kdrama list is rather meagre. Even so, I don't think either of these two weekly/monthly things will end anytime soon. Now where are those seeders........ :roll

And, if they don't care, then they always have the option of not voting. =P Keep in mind that this is used to circulate dramas back into view -- nobody is forcing them to download anything! lol

Even though you added younger man a couple of times it couldn't stand against the other drama series at all. It seems like almost no one wants it. Maybe it will be better to forget about it. Just my opinion and a suggestion.
I mean atm thetenken's pick has more votes than younger man ... if the result will be the same it must mean ppl would rather dl nothing than younger man...

In the last vote it got 30 out of 76 votes. In the one before that it got more than 50 (out of around 150?) IIRC. I don't know if you can call that "almost no one". It also did a hell of a lot better than the ones that didn't even get one volunteer seeder.

I think the reason that the votes for it have been dropping is that some of us decided to make it a kind of unofficial sotw and seeded it very well for the week that lovgen won. So, many people were able to try it or get the remaining eps they wanted that week.

Although it's not one of my favorite dramas, I think YM is a certainly a better drama than LoveGen for instance.

Muhahaha....you will all love the series I pick. =D Well, some more than others. OK, some of you will hate it. If you hate it enough, I will have to upload my own series, called "Love Knows No Bars." You really, really don't want to see that. No, really.

You hypocrite. =P Whatever happened to completed series hmm????? Unless of course, you plan on finishing the last, what, 10 episodes(?) within the next week. That wouldn't be very good uploading policy!!

Anyways, I rather liked the first episode. :wink:

I didn't recognize that :blink. Maybe I read some series synopsis and didn't get interested so didn't pay any attention.
That must be the reason that it couldnt win yet.

There are currently no plans to use JEM series as Series of the Week. We have enough completed dramas as is on this site alone. Not that this is a bar on having an informal JEM series of the week...

Yea!! Let's do that!
There are quite a few good series on jem that I dont have and have not been able to get due to the "inactivity" of that site. There are hardly any seeds around!
If thetenten or someone would arrange JEM series of the week, i'm sure many of us will be happy.
I have completed hero and itsumo futari de, so i'll be able to seed these.

i would think that seeding last as long as people are willing to seed it.

or if you look to past series of week for exaples. they usually last one to two weeks after the next series of the week has been decided upon.

Well, he's raggin on ya cuz, man YOU posted something that doesn't belong on this TOPIC, next time, if your going to make a request put it where it belongs, in the REQUEST FORUM, don't put it anywhere else, basically there's a place where certain posts' belongs get it? LIke this TOPIC for example it's about voting for the series of the week. And you just abruptly put your post HERE. And I guess TailChaser doesn't like newbie behavior and he had to be imature about it. :)

@famisarkawi:

May I make the wise suggestion that you read everything before you post? You just might end up getting flamed all over the place by more unforgiving people here by the nature of your posts. Unless you were referring to the chinese subbed version, Pride will not be an option for two reasons:
  • Pride is Fob's production
    Pride is currently, at the moment, uncompleted
From now on, try to read as much as you can before you post -- ALL of the stickies, announcements, and especially the first post of the topic itself! You will then realize the errors of your ways and hopefully, avoid any more flames in the future. Good luck with that. :)

And people, we were ALL newbies once -- just deal with it okay? There was no need for some of those comments made above. If you're going to be rude, at least explain why you're being rude, okay? Learning through mistakes is the only way you can prevent things like this from happening in the future. ^___^ (Maybe I'm just a dumb idealist.)

Yeah, me too actually, and I'm in my 30s :). I had to seek past those scenes as quickly as possible. It didn't ruin the drama for me though. I still thought it was ok and well worth watching at least once. I have to wonder if there's an age division between people who can tolerate it and people who find it completely unwatchable.

I wonder if there is some kind of software capable of editing out those scenes. Divx/Xvid/MPEG4 is not normally editable unfortunately.

As far as the LoveGen comparison, I found that drama increasingly unwatchable (I stopped after ep08 IIRC) due to Matsu Takako's character. I hate women like that in real life SO much. I wanted to strangle her every time she was on screen. I wanted to see her get sprayed with bullets from some stray yakuza or something. Any guy who would date a women like that deserves everything he gets. Finallly I just couldn't take it and had to stop watching the series.

I had to go watch some Itsumo Futari De and Long Vacation to try to disassociate Matsu Takako from her LoveGen character.

konshu no tema wa...kore desu!

Post by thetenken » Jul 5th, '04, 18:56

*employs Chairman Kaga voice*

If memory served me right, the series of the week has always been more of a two week event, with seeders and leechers working throughout the two weeks to spread the drama to all known corners of mankind. This week, I have something a little different in mind...

Since our esteemed voters have voted me as to decide what the special series will be this week, I thought to myself, "Haven't we had enough KimuTaku? Shouldn't we have some better acted dramas with more serious themes?" Although that thought was ever dominant on my mind, I realized that there would be a fangirl revolution if we went without some KimuTaku or renai dramas...

With these thoughts, I conjured up this solution...

This week's Series of the Week is this!

AND...!!!

Story of One Century
http://jdorama.com/drama_506.htm

With a KimuTaku lookalike for the fangirls and Fukakyon for the fanboys, we're set in regards to the renai quotient. With Matsushima Nanako and Watabe Atsuro, we're good on the good acting and dramatic fronts. A twofold solution, making this truly a Series of the Week (2 series over 2 weeks divided by 2 = 1 Series per Week?!?).!

MODS: just wondering why this thread isn't just moved (and consolidated) in the new Series of the Week/Month section that Ruroshin built? it would give the community a one-stop-shop for sotw and sotm, instead of splitting the discussions? just a suggestion. :idea:
