Post by abcd99 » Nov 22nd, '08, 01:46

Welcome to December 2008's Semi-official 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 December 7, 2008. The seeding shall commence at December 8, 2008. So, cast your vote now! The voting is late. Sorry.

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

Seeing Magical Needle as one of the nominees makes me want to watch it all over again. It's been quite awhile since I last seen it. My vote goes for it. 8)

You can nominate any wuxia with English subs (that also includes historical dramas) that have been uploaded either here or Jem's tracker. Just mention them and I'll let you know whether they're eligible or not. If I do have it, I will seed it, but if I don't, then somebody must volunteer to seed it.

Could I please nominate Strike At Heart, i've never seen this available on d-addicts. Similarly Hero in Black is a series i've been trying to get for a while, unfortunately it was nominated a few months ago but never won, i've been stuck at 54.7% complete for ages.
Thanks

Magical Needle has English subs (as with the other WSotM nominees), and with Mandarin audio.

HSDS 2003 has won CSotM a while back. I need to discuss with a mod whether it's okay to renominate it.

Ok. I will nominate Strike at Heart and renominate Hero in Black for January poll.

Re: DJASTER Xiao Zhuang Epic

Post by fredf355 » Dec 2nd, '08, 21:14

I'm currently seeding Magical Needle also.

Similarly I have Xiao Zhuang Epic but cannot find the torrent link for it to start seeding it. If you send it to me i'll help you complete it. :cheers:

ps. I'm with Kingeagle i'd like to finish downloading Hero in Black as i'm stuck at 54.7% too, so if anyone could seed temporarily i'd in turn continue to seed for others.

Thanks

Anyone have Emperor Han Wu? An 18GB historical series is unlikely to win any nominations, but I'll seed it for a couple months if I ever get it.

I have been seeding both Magical Needle and Huo Yuan Jia for a couple months now. They are both great series that everyone should watch.

I haven't had a chance to download Handsome Siblings/Proud Twins, so I would vote for that but will continue to seed the other two Mandarin titles.

I haven't watched Wind and Cloud 2 or Blade Heart as they are in Cantonese and my wife only speaks Mandarin and doesn't like reading subtitles. As we always watch series together rarely watch non-Mandarin series although I like Japanese, Cantonese, and Korean series as well.

This may well not be much help, I have this series but I don't have the capacity to seed it.
I'd be happy to post the discs to somebody in the UK if they were able to seed it.
If you have enjoyed series you found here then please help the community by offering to seed in Series Of The Month

I'll try to have all-historical dramas in Feb WSotM. How's that sound?

As much as I'd like that, some historical series can get pretty dry. Unless all nominations were abcd99 recommended, I'm afraid a historical SotM would lose some popularity among wuxia fans.

Then, I'll try to have Chinese Historical Drama of the month (or maybe quarter) poll for Feb 09. How's that sound?

Thanks all for seeding :D.

Bad news, I can't find my copy of Strike at Heart. So, either I have to re-rip it (and reupload it) or have someone volunteer to seed it. I don't have time to re-rip it, though.

HSDS 2003 has been a CSotM for April 2008, so I think we ought to wait a bit longer to renominate it.
