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

Post by abcd99 » May 13th, '09, 05:02

Welcome to June 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 May 31, 2009. The seeding shall commence at June 1, 2009. So, cast your vote now! The voting is somewhat early.

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

Read this for the discussion of WSotM.

Note: Past winners of WSotM / CSotM are not eligible. The series nominated last month can't be nominated this month, unless it's the runner-up. This is to give other series some chance.

This month's choices are predominantly historical dramas. Enjoy. :D

If anyone can send me the posters for Swordsman 1 or Swordsman 3, please PM me.

I'll make this simple...I've always liked Vicky Zhao Wei...I'm going with Princess Returning Pearl (even though I nominated Swordsman I and III and the Chess Warriors)...Yeah...I even watched Red Cliffs just to see what she did with it.

So, I can always watch the other ones some other time...(or nominate them - or vote for them for that matter).

By the way, Swordsman I and III are really good and, I've heard, that Chess Warriors is a lot of fun.

I think I've watched at least some of every show except for one. However, Princess Returning Pearl is definitely "the classic" drama out of all of these, so to speak, even if strictly speaking, it's historical and not really wuxia. Besides, everybody has to live through the utter sap that is Zi Yan and the dude (forgot his name) at least once.

Yeah...well, there's Wuxia and then there are a lot with some wuxia moments...If it's a fun story or a really good story and some wuxia moments...I'm happy...not everything is a Jin Yong classic brought to the small screen...

As I said, my vote was less than noble...I voted for Princess Returning Pearl just so that I could see Vicki Zhao Wei again....:-)

I'm surprised that Chess Warriors seems to be beating Princess Returning Pearl so early in the poll. Even though I recommended CW, Princess Returning Pearl should be a far more interesting series. Did I mention that Vicky Zhao Wei is in it?

That will do. Thanks, AndOr. Finding a poster is always a big problem for me and often delays the posting of SotM poll, especially if I can't find it in D-A's Wiki.

I'm watching Legend of the Connor's Hero 2008. The English subs are coming out so slow. So are I like the guy who is playing the male lead. He is doing a decent job.

Hu Ge is the male lead...I don't mind him...(I liked Chinese Paladin with him)...what I don't particularly like is the way that the story has been changed....

I guess we're a bit off topic with this..
