すみませんでした! It's hard to explain but I will try again. I have downloaded an asadora (morning drama) called Churasan. It has like 156 episodes x 15 min each. What I'm looking for is a drama that also has alot of episodes but with the usual 45 min per episode. So I was wondering if someone knows such a...

I have a question. In the series, Beginner, and Medaka, the main characters are all from different age groups and variety of backgrounds, and didn't know each other before. Are there other dramas like these two? I can think of Densha Otoko, but that's it.

"only difference is that there has to be a great extent of episodes like an asadora." I don't understand this part. What is different if they are alike? If you are looking for regular dramas like Churasan, maybe you can watch some of the dramas written by the same writer, Okada Yoshikazu. In some sc...

The reason I prefer torrents instead of DLL, streaming sites is that you can give back by seeding to other users, and that's the main purpose of torrents. While that's true, I find that sometimes when seeding an old torrent, I can't give back (data transfer wouldn't happen), possibly because of inc...

I would suggest making an exception for the torrent comment section, since it can be very difficult to get seeders for old torrents, particularly if it's not for a drama series. But I am pretty much a newbie when it comes to the workings of this site, so feel free to disregard my suggestion if you d...

That's only for someone who is experienced, newcomer usually takes even longer, and it takes about the same time to do the timing to sync the subtitles with the dialogue.

Yes, from what I've heard, it usually take at least 3-4 hours to translate one episode.

You can pick drama that you enjoy for subbing though. If it's an old drama you are subbing, maybe you could get it sent to you by snail mail, since you haven't got much of a download quota.

With Megaupload, after downloading a certain amount, you need to wait a few hours before you can download again. That's just the way it is. I read that you can use proxy, or the Megaupload download software to get around it, but I couldn't get it working when I tried.

It's probably easier for you to download from one of those LJ communities, all you have to do is register at livejournal and join the communities, then you can download from direct download sites which is more convenient and faster than using bit torrent. http://jdorama.com/viewtopic.php?p=756083#75...

As for trading with me, can I have a look at what you have? I am pretty much only interested in old series (early 2000 or before). I am writing up a list of what I have, it's not complete but it's pretty close. Almost all of them were sent to me by Anime Dad. http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=...

I know where you can get Tabloid, ClubBox. Search "tabloid" using http://boxfile.co.kr/ in IE. But the quality is really poor, and it only has Chinese subs. Love Quotient must be available somewhere, it's relatively recent, and I think I have seen it available, though probably not with English subs....
