Japanese SoTW (6/10/2007) - Toshishita no Otoko

Post by mizune » May 28th, '07, 04:16

Theme for this week's picks are older series that have had a REALLY poor history of seeding....

If you're willing to seed any of the series in the poll, please post a reply here or in the JSOTW: Looking For Volunteer Seeders thread or PM any one of the Geinou. There are still several series which don't have any volunteer seeders, so do volunteer for those! The more seeders we have, the more variety there will be in the future JSoTW polls.

Many thanks go out to those seeding the current JSoTM (Meguri Ai). Thank you for your support! :salut:

In the now immortal words of thetenken........


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...

(06/14/2004: As of this date, the Series of the Week is now officially only Japanese dramas with English subtitles.)

The nominees are:

Amai Seikatsu - torrents
Homework - torrents
Younger Men / Toshishita no Otoko - torrent
Nanisama - torrents

What is a series of the week? More Info Here
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.

We 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...

Reminder: You must have at least 10 posts to vote. Go on, kiddies... explore the forum a bit... :)

Nanisama is in my top 10 of best dramas alongside orange days, ai no uta, sekachuu and a few others. It's the perfect mix for a bittersweet comedy.

Another great idea for a theme, chiming in with ippanjin22.
My vote's for Nanisama!
As much I'd like to see Toshishita otoko, I've seen two episodes of Nanisama! and now I really want to see the rest.
(And yes, there's one merciful seeder but we downloaders can't connect to him/her so we've all been stuck for days.)

I need to take back what I recently wrote.
Recently, we're connecting very nicely with our one merciful Nanisama! seeder, so we're no longer stuck.
(So now, I'm rooting for Toshishita otoko...)

I vote for Toshishita otoko

Post by suzyq24aa » Jun 9th, '07, 01:26

HI Guys;
I'm already seeding Toshishita otoko. Only one problem, I'm at 98,9% for ep. 7-11 and 7.8% for ep 1-6. So if someone will seed the whole thing, I'll keep it up there for a month.

Since there doesn't seem to be sufficient interest in Homework to make it SOTW, I'll VSS it. The time period will be 6/10/07 to 6/30/07.

Since I've already seen Toshishita no Otoko - and I liked it, because it has a nice atmosphere ^_^

Voted for Nanisama, because the cast seems to be pretty good :-) Shinohara Ryoko and Takeuchi Yuko :clap:

I've watched Nanisama up till ep7. All I can say is that it's one of the best J-dramas Ive seen so far.
Wish the acting of present day J-dramas could be as natural than their predecessors. :whistling:

Sorry, for the late update. Things have been... gargh...
Anyhow, Toshishita no Otoko has won this week's poll. I'll let it run a full 2 weeks until the next vote since I don't see anybody seeding it yet. Sorry for the inconvenience, folks!

New poll will be up later today...

*GASP* I think this is the show I've been trying to find for the last 5 years or something. If it is, this is the first Japanese I've EVER watched in my LIFE and the reason I found interest in Japanese dramas. Thank you, SOTW.

EDIT: *GASP!!!* this IS the show I've been looking for since forever. *heart* all those that voted for this show
