thanks for the suggestions.
yes - i actually was able to grab up to week 9 by searching btdigg in HIRAGANA, and then got 10 and 11 by searching in ENGLISH (found korean results). After that I had been searching in HIRAGANA, ENGLISH, and HANGUL with the title surrounded in quotes, but never found anything beyond week 11.

Am I searching incorrectly? Were you able to find beyond week 11 on btdigg?

I just tried torrentproject, and looks like it's sending me to a freshly built server. I'm getting a generic welcome page stating that the www server was correctly installed.

SO FAR, I was able to watch up to ep84 (end of week 14) from the previous link that GodzilaShogun directed me to, but I'd prefer to get something without hardsubs on them.

Any help would be GREAT! Thanks.

My search on btdigg returns up to week 11 too but torrentproject have week 12 720p and week 13 480p before they went down.

The good news is they're up with week 14 480p.

rawr.raws -- thanks! i went to that site and found the files without the hardsubs. granted, it's 480p instead of the 720p versions that were available in the past... but I'm still happy to have found them!

thank you again!

NHK's current morning drama 'Amachan' has been undergoing negotiations for a number of reasons.

One of them is the hit song "Koyomi no Ue dewa December" by the fictional idol group "Ameyoko Jogakuen Geino Course" (short "AmeJo") that ranked first on the daily rankings of Recochoku and iTunes. Now they have finally revealed who is actually singing the song for the drama --- it's the idol group babyraids.

In the drama, "Koyomi no Ue dewa December" is AmeJo's third single and a million seller that was released in 2009. The protagonist of the morning drama, "Amano Aki" (Nounen Rena), also performs this song as a member of AmeJo's sister group "GMT46". After being released on Recochoku and iTunes, it quickly became a hit in the real world as well.

The voices behind the song have now been revealed to be the idol group babyraids together with voice actress Minase Inori, who portrays AmeJo member "Narita Rina". The lyrics were written by scriptwriter Kudo Kankuro himself, and the composition was handled by Otomo Yoshihide, Sachiko M, Eto Naoko, and Takai Koki.

babyraids debuted in 2012 and are going to release their fourth single "Baby Ambitious" on July 31. They also plan to record "Koyomi no Ue dewa December" again as five members only and release it as their official fifth single on August 21.

Is it only me who wants the smaller 480p version?

Posted: Jul 21st, '13, 16:53

I agree that 720p is a tad large: 2,25x the size of 480p. I'd prefer 576p myself but nobody encodes those for some reason.

(576p means either 720x576 (anamorphic if widescreen) or 1024x576. The latter resolution is about 40% larger in file size compared to the 480p version, while the former should be within a few per cent. Call it a placebo if you want, but I find 480p to look quite a bit worse than 576p anamorphic. Vertical resolution is king.)

(720x576 ("576p") and 848x480 ("480p") have roughly the same amount of pixels.)

Gosh, this went quite off-topic.

Posted: Jul 21st, '13, 23:02

unfortunately my converter doesn't have that option, only 848x480.

That will make Rena the upcoming female host if they still follow the path.

Ohhh right, I forgot about Ayase Haruka, I now remenber that she was indeed choosen, I remenber seeing the press conference.
Nounen Rena was to young and unexperienced perhaps, besides Ayase is starring in a long period drama as well. Maybe next year it will be Yoshitaka Yuriko.

Nounen Rena seems to have difficulty with communication. She thinks a lot when speaking. Perhaps she is retarded? lol. I don't think so. I think she's very talented able to remember long scripts. Considering that she's not good at speaking, it'd be a "j*1e10" if she were to be chosen as a shikaisha(host?) www....

Uwah~

The earthquake arc is making me all restless that I typed "earthquake" instead of "earthcolors" when logging in here, can't even laugh at that ToT
NHK's summary for next week:

"Aki prepares for the first concert with the members of GMT.
However, on March 11, 2011, the day before the concert,
the Great East Japan earthquake happens and North Sanriku
and its railroad suffer from severe damage caused by the
Tsunami. In Tokyo, the concert is postponed and the movie
is called off. In the midst of confusion, Daikichi begins the
effort to recover their railroad. Aki continues to work as an
idol though her heart is with people in her hometown where
she finally decides to return. But her hometown has been
devastated and the Ama Cafe is also severely damaged by
the Tsunami. Aki determines to help recover her hometown
by doing what she can do."
(NHK)

But Yui...
Haruko narrates as Yui was leaving with her big trunk...
"If she was really coming back... Or staying in Tokyo...
No one knows for sure"...
:cry: Noooo!

I'm still on episode 43 but I love Amachan so much at this point. I wonder if the Tokyo arc will be great as well, but the story of it doesn't sound interesting to me because I'm all for traditional stuff, and the ama-san storyline is so great and awesome. Is Tokyo arc great? Why Aki changes her mind all the time?

I just think Aki is a typical teenager who changes her mind all the time.
But even adults do that too anyway.
As I said, this drama is not just about being an Ama or an Idol.
Or whom will she end up with. The story is much bigger than that.

now that the show is ending and I look back, I think Tokyo arc was the best. I wasn't excited about it at first too, but then it grew on me. the first arc was brilliant too, but somehow after Tokyo arc I didn't want Aki to return being ama...
Me, too. I love the Hometown Arc, then later on loved the Tokyo Arc. The story kinda plateaued past Week 19 for me. But I do hope the story will end with a good one. But maybe they'll have a hanging ending, so NHK will have a string of SPs to capitalize on it more. But I don't think KudoKan does sequels.

Kudokan usually doesn't do sequels, but the Kisarazu Cat's Eye franchise might count.
Amachan is Kudokan's return to form. I can't believe he produced this massive script while writing plays for and acting in his own theatre group, Otona Keikaku. I find him amazing.

algrsp: That video is delightful! Nounen-chan is a very charming young actress. I am a big fan of Otomo Yoshihide, so this segment was especially interesting to me. Otomo-san has been a celebrated experimental musician (guitarist and turntablist) since the eighties. He has also become quite famous for his film and television composition work, the latest being Amachan, of course.
Here is a revealing look at Otomo-san's avant-garde work, "The Many Moods of Otomo Yoshihide". He speaks English quite well in the interview segments. Warning: noisy as h*ll, at your own risk :D
