What is the Japanese Series of the Week (SoTW)? More Info Here
Due to the substantial number of torrents on this site, we implemented a "Series of the Week," where we could dedicate bandwidth and seeding efforts to a specific series. This helps in several ways:
1. People will know which series was voted and will be seeded, 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, the series of the week gives them an opportunity to dust off those archives and help seed their favorites.
3. Constantly re-circulates older torrents back into view, and focuses bandwidth and demand toward 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). Bittorrent and DA works much better if you share as others have shared with you.


If you are 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 anyone of the mods or admins. There are still several series which do not have volunteer seeders, so any help would be greatly appreciated! The more seeders we have, the more variety we will have in future JSoTW polls!

Reminder: You must have at least 10 posts to vote. Don't start spamming the forum, but this encourages you to get involved in some of those drama discussions!

Katagoshi no Kibito gets my vote, I love the novel!^^

And i did not like the episodes of Bengoshi no kuzu that i watched in Japan so much, so the choice was easy this time!

Bengoshi no Kuzu has my vote, it'll be nice to break the depression streak of our JSOTW with some comedy i think ^.^

Denchi ga kireru made was on the JSotW very recently, shouldn't it have been replaced with another series?

Not necessarily if the series has no seeders still it might run for another poll or two.

Voted for Katagoshi no Koibito - although I'm not really smitten by the story I really like Yonekura Ryokos acting since watching her in Koshonin.

I really don't mind which series wins this one. I've been trying to dl all of them besides 'Gonzo.' I'll finally be able to clear these from my queue. ;)

First off, I like to say a big Thank You to everyone who are involves; raw provider, subbing teams, seeders and JSoTW.

I am a big fan of jdrama and have been using this services for a few years.

I have a question for the next series to be voted for JSoTW. I can not find any Eng. sub thread or files for Bengoshi no Kuzu. I can not understand Japanese, unfortunately, even though I have watched many series. Can someone help me?

Thank you very much.

@userii there has to be subs somewhere, if you cant find them they're probably hardsubbed. A drama cant be nominated without subs even if the subs are engrish >.<
