Japanese Series of the Week 01/24/05: Mukodono

Post by thetenken » Jan 12th, '05, 03:46

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:

Food Fight - http://jdorama.com/drama_487.htm
Shopping Hero - http://jdorama.com/drama.707.htm
Mukodono - http://www.jdorama.com/drama.557.htm

Others:

Forbidden Love - http://www.jdorama.com/drama_250.htm
Heaven's Coins - http://www.jdorama.com/drama.142.htm


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
Story of One Century
Friends
Younger Men
Merry Christmas in Summer
Shota no Sushi
Koibumi
Waterboys
Aoi Tori
Meguri Ai
Konna Koi no Hanashi
One Million Stars Falling From the Sky
News no Onna

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 oh well...

1)
I nominate Forbidden Love. I can seed.
http://www.jdorama.com/drama_250.htm

This is a great series, but....
Keep in mind that the video quality is low....

2)
How about Heavens Coins? I can help seed that as well.
http://www.jdorama.com/drama.142.htm

3)
You can add my name to Shopping Hero as well.

Oh!!! So many good dramas in this week's pool!!!
It's hard to pick JUST one drama, so it'll be fine if Mukodono, Majo no Joken or Heaven's coins win.

And my suggestions for the next SOTW are:

*Say Hello to Blackjack
*Say You Love Me
*Ice World

Didn't seem to stop people from voting News no Onna, but if I would have known the quality is so bad I would have voted something else for sure. Maybe we should mention the vid quality more often. But I guess as a fan of a show you don't care too much and just want to see it.

Mukodono this time I'd say.

And which version of Heaven's Coin is nominated, the AD Clan one or SO?

I vote for Heaven's Coins too. Which version Morgan? It's probably SO's version you're going to seed right? AD Clan uses the Japanese name for their version.

Hey, I thought we were supposed to be voting for Food Fight this time? :lol Okay, I did. I'd offer to seed for Heaven's Coins, but I have A.d.Clan's, with SO's for one episode that I didn't think was going to get reseeded any time soon of A.d.'s. I agree that the quality is about the same, although I look forward to how SO likes to put little comments about the show on the ending credits. :D

Watched News Na Onna, and it is quite good, enjoyed it through to the end, even though i voted for Food Fight, I suppose that series will not win for a while :(. I voted for Mukodono this time.:)

I only have SO's version. I never did find out which one was better. :unsure:
I think they're both about the same, except SO's version (first couple of eps) has a black bar on the left or something. Otherwise should be about the same. Both are DVD rips. I'll be happy with either. :-)

Since it looks like Mukodono is definitely going to win, can we nominate "Hoshi no Kinka" (Heaven's Coins) once more for next JSOTW? :unsure:

I want to see Takenouchi Yutaka! :w00t:

I agree, though Mukodono is good, being on the top 10 in jdorama doesn't seem right. Just my 2 cents.

I know what you mean, alvy (I voted for Heaven's Coins too). My hubby and I watched the first 3 eps of Mukodono and then took an indefinite leave from it. :lol

But on the other hand, I think it's nice when a series at Jem wins JSOTW because there are so many titles there that aren't seeded.

*edit* Oh and in response to all the ppl who don't seem to have good opinions of it. Maybe it might be because you haven't watched all of it.
Then again, you could be right, and you may not be the right audience for it. Oh well, I guess you'll only know for sure if you watched all of it. :lol

There are more KimuTaku missing from the completed list:

Beautiful life
Good luck
Hero
Long vacation

That's why these Jdoramas never made it to the SoTW, especially the classic Long vacation :-(. How about LV for next poll?

That's because these series are from j-tv. It's tracked on their tracker and we don't do SoTW using j-tv series. But that doesn't prevent you from personally seeding Long Vacation for people who want to download it. Just make sure you're using j-tv's original torrents and seeding using their tracker. Don't upload the torrents to d-addicts.

Why not put it in the main page to replace the old series of the month? More people will notice that and thus speed up the downloading process.

Omg, to those who are downloading please leave your client open as long as possible. I noticed a lot of irresponsible idiots “hit and run” on a file – in other words, stop the torrent as soon as your download is complete. The whole community is dependent on each member doing their bit to distribute the files. And that means: SEEDING. In future, I hope people who repeatedly “hit and run” on files will have their download privilege removed. :x :x

true but I hate these trackers who keep your ratio logged and you have to wait 24hours to start, then it's near impossible to actually get a good ratio because there are so many seeders trying to get their ratio up too :crazy: in the end you won't want to download as you end up lowering your ratio to <0.500 or even less

Hey...I've been lurking around D-Addicts for awile now....and finally decided to join...
reason for joining is that I wanna help Seed....I've been downloading this series (Mukodono) for the whole nite already (Episode 3 to be exact) but it still hasn't finished downloading...and I think this is because we don't have enough seeds...or people are just downloading and then closing their program right away and not helping to distribute this series of the week.

It kinda pisses me off!!! :x So to improve this problem, I wanna be able to help out by seeding....but I'm pretty new to this torrent stuff...so can anyone help me understand how seeding works? Thanx!

I've been downloading eps 3 too. But the problem is I think that there has only been 1 seed b4 with over 100 leechs so that's why it progressed slowly. NOw it's 2 seeds and 168 leechs so it's still going slowly. I don't think it's because hit and run, not this one anyway because there are few ppl with high percentage done and a lot of ppl who's still on single digit percentage.
Of course we need more seeds :lol . Just don't missunderstand this situation as a hit and run (or those who hit and run was those who downloade b4 I joined, that I dont know about)

Episode Three

Post by Camui » Jan 26th, '05, 01:07

I was that one person seeding episode 3. Although Jem's tracker says there are three others helping me right now. When I first started seeding episode 3 yesterday most of the ppl were in the early 20%'s. *sighs* There were some ppl who did hit and run. Although I suspect they knew nothing of our whole seeding and SOTW operation. At least, that's what I hope.
Anyways, aside from that, the downloaders weren't downloading very fast either. Most of them at least. The sharing was terrible for a while too. :cry: We should start to see more seeds for this one shortly. As I am finishing this post a couple ppl have finished and will hopefully help seed. More on the way, soon I hope. :D

Marrying into the family means assuming the family name. This was somewhat of a big deal, because that means giving up your claim and hereditary rights of your own family and assuming the name of another.

The Third Sister wanted someone to marry into the family so that she wouldn't have to assume responsibility (taking care of the parents, since the other older sisters were already married off, i.e., married into another family).
