Hmmm I can't easily remember the bad ones, since I easily forgot them... I've never stopped watching a drama even if I thought it's a bad one; I'd just spend 5-10 mins on each episode by quick-forwarding it, through the embarassingly borring parts. Sensei Shiranaino, Waterboys, Kimi wa petto, boku n...

Just get VirtualDub, open the file there and you can get a screenshot with printsreen since it doesn't use overlay.

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 gi...

scenario #1: the fansubber who put in the work they're providing a service. they have the right to tag on a price. also, as a service provider they have the choice of the price range.
