The Semi-official Wuxia Series of the Month (Apr 09)

Post by abcd99 » Mar 24th, '09, 23:14

Welcome to April 2009'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 April 5, 2009. The seeding shall commence at April 6, 2009. So, cast your vote now! The voting is somewhat late. Sorry.

What a group of choices this month! The Legend and The Hero is a great re-telling of an old story. It's very well done. Dance in The Sky is also quite good. My vote, of course went for Xiao Ao Jiang Hu aka Laughing in the Wind. I'm just a sucker for a Jin Yong story. Besides, Xu Qing and Li Yapeng are great together (watch for Peng Deng Huai as the Qingcheng sect leader Yu Cang Hai - not often you see a famous thousand face/mask changer in a wuxia series)

@abcd99: Even if Xiao Ao Jiang Hu doesn't win can you still make a new batch torrent?
I will seed it, if you do. At present, there's only about half a seed on average for it.

I don't seed (only download) during off-peak hours (3:00am-9:00am my local time) and my peak-hours (9:00am-3:00am my local time) are dedicated to seeding only.

...and is there any recent good quality drama based on the novel "Outlaws of the Marsh / The Water Margin / All Men are Brothers?" Can't seem to find it on D-Addicts.

If it wins I will make a new batch for it. I will also do this if it stops being seeded at all. Up to now there have still been seeders although numbers are low.
If you have enjoyed series you found here then please help the community by offering to seed in Series Of The Month

Very surprising. It seems that Wind and Clouds 2 is leading the vote counts now. Remember folks, the vote will be closed by April 5 (PDT).

Yes, I agree, Xiao Ao Jiang Hu is the best of the bunch. Still, we need more votes to go in that direction otherwise, it'll lose out (everything will lose out) to Wind and Cloud 2 (it doesn't even have Aaron Kwok in it - at least the movie had him...hehe)

If it can win, then try to make it the runner up. Runner ups are automatically renominated.
Also, please nominate whatever your favorite drama for next poll immediately here.

@Baby-K: Sorry, no can do. Face to Fate was already nominated this month. Try again next month.

@AndOr: Sorry, I can't either. Royal Tramp 2008 hasn't been completely subbed. Plus, it's too new.

Yes. It won Apr 09 WSotM. Finally. It's been runner ups for quite some time. Now Wind and Cloud II has been a runner up for 4 months (or 5?). Oh well. Try to come up with some other nomination. I'll put up some nomination a few days later.

Xiao Ao Jiang Hu is a great series, and I hope everyone gets to watch it. I have all three of the Mandarin titles (Xiao Ao Jiang Hu, The Legend and the Hero, & Dance in the Sky) for this month and will continue to seed all of them for a while.

There are a lot of series I like which haven't won yet and it is hard to pick just one, but I'll give it a shot. My nomination for next month is "The Great Revival".
