Vote for April's Chinese Series of the Month

Posted: Mar 15th, '05, 08:37
by Kai Lien
Ni Hao!

Welcome to May's Chinese Series of the Month (CSoTM) Poll.

As the name implies, the CSoTM is dedicated to seeding completed Chinese drama series—be they from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore, or Taiwan—with ENGLISH subs. This is an important stipulation and it must be understood from the outset.
Repeat : CSoTM is for Chinese drama series with ENGLISH subs only.
There will be no CSoTM seeding of Chinese drama series without ENGLISH subs, period.

The CSOTM will be monthly for short series with an extension for longer series.
For the what, why, and how’s of a SoTM, please see this thread by puccakiss79.

Please note: to qualify for voting privileges, you must have at least 10 posts.
This is to prevent users from creating multiple new accounts for the sole purpose of padding the vote count.
More info can be found at this thread.

And be forewarned: There are definite ways to detect cheaters, so don’t even think about cheating to get your desired drama to win. Confirmed cheaters will be dealt with in a stern but judicious manner. Don’t say you haven’t been warned!

For May's CSoTM, voting will close on April 29th, 2005.
Seeding for the winning series will then begin on the May 1st, 2005 and ends May 31th, 2005.

A great big thank you to all the volunteer seeders, without you this would not be possible. :wub:
If any seeder cannot help seed this month, please PM either Animetama or myself to let us know ASAP. Thanks again!

Ok, so now for the fun part.

Without further ado, we present the candidates for April's CSoTM:
Note: Reviews and Info may contain Spoilers!


Name in lavender = seeder has an incomplete series

Candidate nominations for the next CSOTM should be posted in this thread, but remember that nominations should be for completed series, and the completed series should hopefully have declared volunteers. (It’s pointless to vote for a series if there are no seeders willing to seed if and when it wins.)

Completed list of Chinese dramas can be found here. Volunteer to seed if you can. :-)

Have fun voting, play fair, and let's make our CSoTM a successful one!

Cheers,
Tama & Kai Lien

Wow, this was a hard one, so many good series to choose from....but I think I will choose My MVP Valentine....and if that can win, then Dolphin Bay is my second choice! :D

I really hope that At the Dolphin Bay wins. My friends told me it was a great drama series. ^-^ That would hopefully help w/ all the people still trying to dl the series and fill the void in seeders. hehe....

Since My MVP Valentine has already been shown here, I'll go for At the Dolphin Bay. I'm curious! :D

vote for mvp valentine, synopsis sounds interesting

by Calcifer
Dolphin Bay's pretty good, though I haven't finished it yet. Hmmm...I'm all for an ancient one, but there's not much choice here. I saw some of Duke and found it to be one of those trying-too-hard-to-be-funny-and-ends-up-lame series. But that's just me. :-)

Step into the Past sounds like it's got an interesting plot...I'll vote for that, though it doesn't look like it's got much of a chance. Oh well, maybe next time. 8)

Haven't seen anything, but the DOLPHIN BAY and I doubt any of the other series are better. So I'd have to go with AT THE DOLPHIN BAY.

Could you please write what language (dialect) they are in? Or is Cdrama equal to mandarin? I'm studying Chinese, so my future votes will depend on this. :-)

This time I'll put my vote on A Step Into the Past though, I promised I'd seed it and all. ^_^

If there are Completed Cantonese Series with English subtitles available, we will list it for nomination.
Who ever said that we don't support it..?

wow... i'm really surprised how badly At Dolphin Bay is doing. I thought it was suppose to be a pretty good series. Why so few votes for it? :-(

Posted: Mar 19th, '05, 10:08
by lindaatje
Because I already have Dolphin bay :D
my MVP valentine hasn't been seeded very well, so I didn't have the chance to complete this series.

I liked A Step into the Past and Duke of Mount Deer. But between the two, I'd have to choose a step into the past. I downloaded one episode of jem's version of step into the past but found out that it was in mandarin (not the original voices). That kinda sucked but it's better than nothing. I would have to say I vote for step into the past.

I think "Condor Hero 95" would be GREAT!!! but sadly no one has it... :pale:

Mandarin Chinese is one of several official languages in Singapore--Cantonese is not one of them.. All JEM captures are from Singapore broadcast TV. I would have to assume that all Chinese/HK drama on JEM are in Mandarin Chinese. Enjoy.

I was hoping Meteor Garden would be a choice this time, but no sweat. Go MVP!!

Last month's winner was really good, I think that Lavender has become one of my favorites. Yay for CSotM!

if not now, they will be after watching. :D i think of my mvp valentine as 5566's equilvalent to F4's meteor garden. if you didn't know of them already, watching will make you want to learn more about the group. :-)

Cool, my first time clicking a Chinese thread and what do I see? A basketball drama? Haha awesome! I DLed the 1st episode of MVP and was lost within the first 5 minutes lol. I thought it was rushed and edited pretty badly but time flew by and at the end I was like wtf its over already? That means it captured my attention leaving me wanting more! I like it :D

o_o;.. Oh it is..? I downloaded ep 1-11 and they downloaded really slow, so I thought that a lot of them didn't have seeds.. but I haven't downloaded any lately because I've been downloading Sth and Forbidden Love.. so sorry.. :o I didn't know.. But if it starts to not have seeds, I nominate it. xD
