Japanese SoTW (11/22/2009) - Dare Yori mo Mama wo Aisu

Post by mizune » Nov 8th, '09, 16:58

Where, oh where, have the seeders gone? ;_;
Still looking for volunteers to keep these polls going (actually, I'm always looking for more volunteers). Please check out the JSoTW Volunteer Seeders Thread to see if you can possibly help out. Nominees for the polls are pulled from this list, however, only series with volunteers are eligible. Series in red are not eligible for the polls because there are no volunteers. ;_;

This poll is an interesting assortment of relatively recent dramas that could use a seeding boost. Muri na Renai has gathered some seeders for all eps, so I'll drop it from the poll this week.

Oh, and I'm still looking for ppl to help on the other polls... ;_;

Many thanks go out to those seeding the last JSoTW ( Fugoh Keiji ). Thank you for your support! :salut:

This week's nominees are:

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!

The "Loss:Time:Life" is very good, but as i already saw it, i voted for Gonzo, which also seems interesting.

oh no all shows i've voted for previously! :crazy: You're make this hard on an addict. Voting Dare Yorimo since I think it's the hardest to obtain/buy via other means. :unsure:

I just realized I was watching Ashita and never finished. It's on one of my HD's someplace. The first 2 eps were pretty good.

I don't think LTL will win again (it already won a few months back, I think, maybe it's back in unseeded purgatory :lol) but here's my summary of LTL:

Loss Time Life was an excellent anthology series, but since it starred different players each episode, I felt this is why it never got a large following. This show while it has a dark theme, it's about as light-hearted as a show about death and second chances could be! Sports announcers give a running commentary, and whistle-blowing referees follow around a character urgently trying to accomplish something important, to close something unresolved in their life, in (usually) a short span of time.

Some of the guest stars - Ueno Juri plays a nurse in ep. 4, Eita is a photographer in ep. 1. Ito Atsushi (Densha Otoko) is in ep. 5, and Maki Yoko :wub: stars in ep. 8.

It should be noted Eps. 10 and 11 (really a 2-part SP) was never subbed by fansubbers. Ep. 9, staring Oizumi Yo as a hikikomori (socially withdrawn person), was a great finish for the regular series. IMHO, ep.9 should have been the very end of the series, so the SP not being subbed is regrettable, it's not a "yellow card" for enjoying the series.

Gonzo is fantastic. Its a character drama. We are presented a broken man, a once glorious, admired by all, but now somewhat of a joker & he accepts himself for what he is, but something happened. Something significant enough that we see just a subtle hint or maybe an undertone of hope each episode. Piece by piece, little by little he seems to pick up where he left off. He is not perfect, he is flawed, but you will still root for him. You will feel his pain and feel his joy. His goofy dazed face, becomes that of a driven man, one who will stop at nothing, you better get out of his way.

Also, the production value is one to be admired, courageous if I may say so. The uber long shots makes it a lot engaging for anyone to lose track of time. Only true skilled actors, directors, production tea can pull this off. A lot of one long shots, no editing to make up for poor acting, just raw talent. If you appreciated "children of men" then you'll know what I'm talking about.

Gonzo lead actor also plays the Sakamoto Ryoma in Jin.

Kita Youshio is another one of my favorites. Not to mention, he's in every drama that has even been made :)

I hope Ashita no Kita Yoshio wins! I've been downloading it lately but there hasn't been that many seeds though. I personally think that the series is awesome ;D

My vote goes to Ashita no Kita Yoshio. Dare Yori mo Mama wo Aisu was definitely great, but I'd love to see this dorama. :)
