Replies: 98

While it seems that there are many Chinese speakers on d-addicts, c-subbed dramas are of no use to me personally, unless they are soft subbed, in which case they really are raws anyway. Also, abmj is mostly c-subbed j-dramas. So there is a source for them. <i>Definitely</i> allow raws. Especially af...

I haven't seen that many k-dramas yet. I am starting to like them more. My favorite dramas are Japanese. But here's what I think so far: k-dramas are to j-dramas what American television is to British television. In addition, IRL Koreans are more like Americans (or maybe Australians) and Japanese ar...

Rina's webmail address doesn't help us all that much (although some of us could have a go at trying to guess her password). Neither does her first name even assuming that it's real. What we need is her address and phone number or at least her real last name. We need to be able to ring her doorbell (...

When I first saw Ryoko Hirosue, I thought she was a boy. I think she could definitely play one convincingly. For actresses, Aya Ueto has got to be the prettiest. I'd also give an honorable mention to Goto Maki (ok not really an actress but still) and Kyoko "the Evil Elf" Fukada. IMO, none of these a...

I have been thinking a lot about this recently. I have been thinking about what ruroshin said and I am beginning to wonder if it just might be possible. Perhaps some of us should just open our own ebay stores to compete with gingertoys. It's obviously safe enough. The TV networks obviously don't giv...

For translators who may be put off by these Ebay sales, perhaps you should sub every episode but the last one. In most dramas the last episode is not all that great anyway. The characters are usually madly rushing around trying to tie up loose ends so that we can have a happy ending. Truly fraudulen...

Another is for any one of us to claim that we are a North American representative for Japanese TV network x and that we will be pursuing legal action against not only the "seller" but also Ebay if they do n...

On Ebay, go to "Help" at the top of the page. Then go to "Contact Us" on the left of the page. Here you select "Report a listing policy violation or prohibited (banned) item" in the first field.

I assume that all caucasian new worlders (North/South Americans, Aussies, Kiwis)would answer European, but even 3rd generation Asian Americans (the continent not the country) would answer based on the where their family is originally from. I am just wondering what "other" might be. Maybe African?

WRT younger men, Fubuki Jun is indeed tough to watch in a "romantic" scene, but let us not forget that there are not just one but two hot babes in this dorama. Inamori Izumi is definitely cute. I think she beats a lot of very popular younger j-actresses who shall go unnamed. She also looks more Japa...

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. 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 "alm...

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 o...

Maybe Groink would be willing to seed at least those 3 if it wins. Are there any voulunteers yet for the other dramas?...

Ice World, Hello Blackjack and Love Generation are all available on IRC. A version of Love Generation is being made available on abmj right now as well. YM is not available anywhere AFAIK. It is too bad that this series had to compete with LG. It may have won against a lesser known drama.

The fact that ep01 of younger men is being seeded atm and the fact that I cannot find working subs for the Lov Gen eps that I already have (the ones from d-addicts don't match my version), make this vote more complicated for me. Would the Love Gen eps also include matching subtitles? Alvy, you can f...

Well, I voted yes on the presumption of highly moderated releases. If this means that we must wait until a moderator has the time to verify that the release is "safe" that is fine IMO.
