A Chinese Ghost Story for me thanks. I like Jacky/Jason/Jing Wu. Excellent martial artist.

If I remember correctly, those two episodes of Chinese Ghost Story were not subbed for some reason (poor quality raws?) when the series was first being released. They were eventually subbed by ravebleach and released.

I have them on my external drive, so if needed, I could seed those for you.

Thanks haiirouchuujin. I'll try to look at my DVD stash first. If I can't find it, I'll PM you to upload the ravebleach's version. Thanks again.

Not sure if that's a vote, or a seed request. In any case, I am going to seed episodes 26 and 31 for a bit in case people need them.

Personally, I'm hoping for Lotus Lantern, because I don't have it and because it's an older torrent without a lot of seeders. I don't know if it's any good, but it looks interesting. Is this original or is it based on a novel?

I'm a fan of Pu Songling, so I can recommend Chinese Ghost Story, even though it's not even close to an accurate version of the story.

I'm watching Da Ren Wu and Tearful Sword currently. Both were released recently and while I'm enjoying them, I'd rather see an older series that hasn't been seeded so recently.

I hated what I saw of Wind and Cloud II. I thought it was terrible. The fights are pathetic. The story is juvenile. The acting is hammy.

I'm also hoping for Lotus Lantern. But I know that a lot of users will like the newer series (due to the bigger budgets, better costumes, etc)...of course, newer doesn't mean a better story...

AndOr, you should get 10 posts before you can vote. Just try to fulfill the forum's requirement and cast your vote soon.

That's an excellent point, but I don't want to post just to rack up the necessary number to enable a vote. I only post when I think I have something to say.

And even if Andor and I both post enough before the vote closes to add ours to Lotus Lantern, I don't think we're enough to swing the vote. Most people who are interested have probably already voted, and Chinese Ghost Story looks like the winner.

I did vote! (as I do every month). Still, I don't think that Lotus will make it this time (too bad!)

Ah, now I see...Even though I have been voting for quite a while, my vote looks as though it has counted but hasn't?

Yeah. Well, since Jiang Hu is the only fansub that subs Wuxia drama here, I don't think that 水月洞天 will ever get subbed. Jiang Hu doesn't have that as a project.

So, you need to have 10 posts, and you are right now. So you can vote. Yes, if you have less than 10 votes, your vote will be ignored by the system.

My vote is for Chinese Ghost Story. I don't have it yet, and would like to see it.
Although my computer is slow, I am seeding Da Ren Wu and Tearful Sword for those who want it.

I look forward to watching Chinese Ghost Story.

I have 39 and 40 of Chinese Ghost Story. I can seed if you need me to.

(And yes, I'm posting instead of doing a PM because it gets me one closer to when I can vote.) :P

I just did a search for Chinese Ghost Story torrents, and I don't see any for those two episodes. Am I not seeing them or did they drop off of the site?

That's the problem. I think the original torrent was posted by koulen and he deleted it. But it's okay. Airhead has promised to PM the links to me pretty soon so that I can start making the batch torrent.

First...thanks for all the seeders (I downloaded CGS in less than two days).

Secondly, and I don't want to appearing as if I'm whining...but if anyone has the two rmvb files as avi's I would be very appreciative...I like to watch the series on my tv...and converting rmvb files has never been very successful at my end...

Anyway, if it's not possible, again my thanks to those of you who issued the torrent and seeded it.
