Welcome to November 2008's Unofficial Wuxia Series of the Month (WSoTM) Poll.

As the name implies, the WSoTM is dedicated to seeding completed Wuxia drama series with ENGLISH subs. Note that WSotM is not official yet. This poll is intended to be a test run. At the moment, I and others who have pledged to seed will be responsible for the seeding of the selected WSotM. Please make your pledge to seed the WSoTM in this thread.

I would appreciate if you're also willing to help seed. PM me. Thanks.

The vote shall run until October 31, 2008. The seeding shall commence at November 1, 2008. So, cast your vote now! The voting is a bit early.

For the what, why, and how’s of a SoTM, please see this thread by puccakiss79.

Would like to see Lucky Stars ideally, alternatively Conquerors Story or Witness to Prosecution. Not looking good though.

I would really like to see Wind and Cloud 2. I've always enjoyed Vincent Zhao's flicks and it's quite rare to see him in a series that is Cantonese or Cantonese dubbed.

Laughing in the Wind / Xiao Ao Jiang Hu 2001 is a great series. Li Ya Peng does and excellent job as usual, and Xu Qing is also very good.

I have been watching the torrents for this series to make sure that they don't go too long without seeds. They are still generally healthy with 3 to 4 seeds for each section. The advertising as a potential WSoM seems to have helped.

My wife doesn't like subtitles and doesn't speak Cantonese fluently enough, so we generally only watch the Mandarin audio series.

I have been trying for a while to download the Witness to a Prosecution series, but the torrents for both season 1 and season 2 haven't had seeds for a while. Although it is an older series, I was hoping that if it got picked for the WSoM someone would start seeding it again.

External drives that hook up either usb 2.0 or ESata works great. They have their own power source so it doesn't eat up your psu from the tower.

Thanks abcd99, WSOTM is a great thread allowing us to get some great series that we would otherwise not be able to. Looking forward to watching Lucky Stars.
Any ideas of what series are going to be up for Dec?
I'm still holding out for Heroes in Black - Wo Lai Ye being up again. Everyone after this is stuck at 54.7%
Similarly wouldn't mind seeing Strike at Heart
Anyway, thanks again!

I voted for Wind and Cloud II.

I hope part one of W&C will be availabe sometime soon. I did enjoy Storm Riders (movie) when it came out almost a decade ago, then to hear rumors of a sequel only for it to not happen.
