Btw, will the wiki.d-addicts.com still be updated regularly?
It really helped me decide what to watch each season.

If not, there needs to be something like it.

Some comments: RATIOS: I don't like ratios for D-addicts. Ratios are always hard to fulfill and there are very few uploaders for D-addicts. I think even without ratios the D-addicts community was very helpful. REGISTRATION Yes. Registration. Should be required. The torrents section should not be pub...

Tsukushi and Doumyoji at the very end of the 2nd season of Hana Yori Dango. Now THAT was a kiss. Tsukushi made the big bad tough Doumyoji-san look like a shy little boy. Also, they way the kiss was done, you just know it would probably never happen in real life (at least not in Japan), which made it...

Why did jdrama.cc shut down?

Does anyone know why http://jdrama.cc decided to close their site?
It was the only site out there that recorded captions for nearly all J-dramas shows currently airing on TV.

Willl there be any other sites like it?
I already knows about the dramanotes site.

Quick Question.

The stunt pulled in Episode 7.

How is it NOT a violation of the rule saying that "if you fail to provide the service in your M-ticket transaction, then you'll be force to pay up 100 million yen" ?

Japanese Dialects on TV

I'm really liking how there are healthy doses of Fukuoka-ben in "Bambino". It's really the first drama I've seen where a local dialect is being used extensively as opposed to being used for comic relief. I would like to see more dramas do this. Anyway, I was wondering if there are local TV shows in ...

Hmm...... I wonder if it would be enough to use the scripts at http://dramanote.seesaa.net/ to create Japanese subtitles. The timing isn't there, but I guess that'd be the work of the subtitling group. Even better, the script has notes for characters expression or to tell what's going on at the time...

I know that they like to try to be faithful to the manga. But I think the producers of the show should have tried to make some plot up on their own, since there isn't much to work with. Another option, could've been to make the drama shorter(maybe 15-20 minutes) instead of 36. To me, Ep 6 wasn't tha...

Akiyama's reasoning seems spot on, but I do see a flaw in his plan.
Everything will hinge on the very next person. Maybe they haven't figured
it out yet. But if they did, they should act fast.

So it says that you can watch TV with closed captioning with these cards.
And it says that there are versions for japan.....

Japanese Closed Captioning (Jimaku Housou)

These days most Japanese shows have closed captioning. You'll often see it with "Hi-Vision" or "BS-Hi" or simply "Jimaku Housou" in the upper right at the start of the show. If this is the case, why don't groups post RAWS with Japanese subtitles. As someone who loves to study Kanji, it'd be nice to ...

There's a j-drama called "Seikin Bijin" or "Artificial Beauty". The drama seems to suggest that plastic surgery goes completely against Japanese aesthetics and beauty.
