I downloaded a couple episodes a few months back and remember that the quality was really bad and the sound was really aweful as well. The sound was also set at a lot higher rate, so whenever I play it, I would scream because it would shock me and hurt my ear drums. Not to mention that the opening song was really bad.

Hope it's ok to ask here. is this a tv-ripped version? I just wonder 'cause it has 30 episodes. And when I looked it up on yesasia the Mainland-Version only has 16 episodes. The Taiwan original VCD even consists of 10 episodes only.

Anyway, I think it's great to have enough seeders for CSOTM. Thank you guys. :clap:

I remembered that I volunteered to seed this, but the version I have is not the same as the one here on DA... so I'm really sorry! I just checked them, and I only have a few eps that are the same. I'll seed those, but I wish I could help with the others!

If you check out the thread for each episode, a kind soul posted links for each episode on megaupload. I've been downloading them, and the sound quality is a ton better. The video quality is about the same, but definitely watchable, I think. They're also avi. files, not DAT files, so a bit more user-friendly.

Hey, I'm afraid that my versions tend to vary a bit as well, I have versions from Lunachicas, the version uploaded here at d-addicts and maybe two other-fansub groups

Hi,
I downloaded the 1st episode and were disappointed with the poor quality. Basically, the picture was blurry and not clear, plus the sound was not that great either. I've seen this series many years ago when it first came out and possibly still have the video tapes for it. I won't continue with my download of this series!

LOL I'm laughing hard when I see complaints about the video quality. There was a post concerning video quality about Marmalade Boy within the vote poll, I guess you were all impress by the vote numbers and keep voting it instead of going through the thread and read what it has been saying.

That's a lesson to learn. Always read posts before VOTING.

*raises hand meekly*

Yeah, the quality is pretty bad. the DA ones, the DAT VCD rips have better quality translations and subs, but their audio is shat.
The Lunarchicas ones have much better audio, but their subs annoy me, why'd they have to revert to the original japanese names?!

The video I can tolerate, but the audio and subs just get on my nerves.

And yes, I watched them before voting, I mentioned the quality issues in the voting thread. Pity it seems nobody so much as looked twice *shrugs*

But I still don't regret voting for it, the story and humor are awesome!!

^^well, if anybody wants the RAWs, you can find them in murimzizon's clubbox. (translation on page 42 of the Clubboxes with Chinese Series thread) they're .DAT files, so i'm assuming they're VCD-rips.

Can you give me the link for Clubboxes with Chinese Series? I can't find the link for that thread or see it in the Chinese Entertainment section.

Personally, I really enjoyed it. If you can get past the audio/video quality from its debut many years ago, I think you'll find the story very funny and amusing.

I agree. It is very funny and amusing but it's kinda hard to get pass the audio/video quality because it's so in the way.

The poll for April's CSoTM is still up, until Friday, because I put it up late. I'll ask the volunteer seeders if they can seed what wins an extra week into May to compensate. So please vote now!
