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:

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...

Forbidden Love of course! Even though the few episodes I've seen and the theme song promises to have me crying my eyes out by the end, I can't wait to see the rest of this! .........But if it can't win I wouldn't mind seeing Little Chef either, being a fan of Abe Hiroshi since his days being in Trick. :D

I'm sorry to be asking this...but how can you get a series you want in JSOTW ? ? ....there are alot of people that want to see PRIDE and i've checked the list of dramas that were already on JSOTW and PRIDE wasn't on it....can we get PRIDE in the mix pretty soon? please please...onegai shimasu :-)


BTW about the topic at hand i chose Forbidden Love...story sounds interesting and has Matsushima Nanako...can't go wrong with that :lol

I think the reason Pride is not on the list is because it is consistently one of those series that do get seeds. Everytime I look at the tracker stats for this series, there's usually a seed or two for most of the series. Even at this moment, there are seeds for all epsiodes except for episode 2. Then again, that's just my thinking.

Oh, I voted for My Little Chef, seeing that so many people seemed to ask for it in the Shoutbox. Good luck to the MLC fans.

Forbidden Love gets the early lead! Can the little chef out prepare the competition? Stay tuned!! :D

I have already seeded several gig's worth of Heaven's Coins, but appreciate all of the great help! This week's series is moving along!!! 8) I can't take all of the credit. Thank you all for your help. Keep up the good work. :thumright:

Would you happen to have all the eps of PRIDE? and if so where can i get my hands on it i want to see that so bad and it'll complete my most wanted list for j-dramas...i was about to DL the eps on D-addicts but i read that the subs are really horrible...if anyone knows where to get good subs for Pride hit me up ...onegai shimasu :cry:

seems I am pretty new here, so maybe the next time I will be able to vote, anyways any will be fine for me, I didn't saw any of them...

but from the synopsis, I will go for my little chef, sounds interesting.

By the way, thanks a lot, I viewed Food Fight and I enjoyed it a lot :w00t:
but I want to see the next 2 extra episodes...

by the way, anyone knows if those 2 extra episodes are available in Tsutaya? (just in case in Tokyo?) , if so , maybe I will be able to rent them... :mrgreen: I will go there these weekend and try to find it.

Hey sleepyboi!, its weird, I got pride just this week, from jems site I think :blink
still haven't seen it.

I will try to find the place, but now jem's site is down :cry:
You can try to look there later , but I cannot tell anything about the subs yet.
I was watching Hero today and subs are so so... still my japanese is not so good but I know the difference sometimes.

I do... and it's the one that can be found here on D-A :). The subs are what some would term "engrish", but the quality of the video is really good (A). The subs really aren't not that bad, seeing that I managed to finish watching the series with it, and understood about 90%+. It just gets a bit confusing when the his/her/him/you/he/she are incorrectly used. Mind you, I believe the subs were taken directly from the retail DVD. As for good subs, well, [fob] released their subbed-version of the series. So far, 6 episodes have been released, and the subtitles are much much nicer than the "engrish" one. You can find the [fob] episodes here.

I'd really like to see Kamisama mou sukoshi dake (神様、もう少しだけ) God please give me more time / Precious time with Takeshi Kaneshiro and Kyoko Fukada but I guess no one has it.

I guess I'll vote for Shopping Hero, but they are playing in LA now. Maybe someone could get a fresh tv rip.

I saw Forbidden Love and it was nice, but I just didn't get into it, maybe if it wins, I'll watch again.

Thank you!!! All of you!!!

hmm, but there isn't a single other person that's seeding forbidden love so even if u vss it might not really help much since there r so many people who r trying to download to no avail.

anyhow, maybe if the series of the week really did rotate every single week then there could be more series put up and then everybody would see what they want eventually.

Posted: Feb 25th, '05, 09:07
by jholic
the jsotw is always such a close race.

i really wanted 'shopping hero', but if NatNat's willing to do a VSS, i can't go against that. i put my vote in for 'my little chef'.

folks: it's like i said in the ksotm, you can't beat a 2-for-1 deal. if you vote for MY LITTLE CHEF, you also get 'forbidden love'. sweet, right?

good luck to 'my little chef'.

LOL i forgot to mention that i have at least 3 eps from FOB. Anyway does the D-addicts version of Pride have soft subs?if not, is there a way to request for that? or is it not possible because they are hard subs? and finally if i end up watching the d-addict version...is it even watchable despite all its problems..i really want to see it with good subs

And if My Little Chef doesn't win we won't get Forbidden Love either. Maybe it's too much of a risk for all the people who want Forbidden Love. :-)

A better deal would have been if Forbidden Love was seeded already then people wouldn't vote for it.

I have already voted for Forbidden Love because I tried to dl that for two weeks now and am stuck at around 98 % at two episodes and I want them soon to finish watching it. If I had them already I would have voted for something else.

But My Little Chef sounds interesting and I will certainly vote for it the next time around if it doesn't win this time.

such a hard choice!! Both With Love and Shopping Hero would be awesome!... guess I would want with love more than anything since I just need 3 more eps. I could help see up to 9... but I am missing 10, 11 and 12.

Shopping Hero I could also help seed eps 1 and 2
