Sakura?

Post by HappyPancake » Oct 5th, '05, 15:22

I know I once watched a couple of episodes of a J-drama which starred a young woman, playing the role of, I think, a high school teacher. Her name was Sakura, something. She had a fling with a non-japanese guy who was fluent in Japanese...

I know it's not much, but does this sound familiar to anyone? I'd like to actually watch the whole thing from the beginning, but I can't remember the name of the show.

It's called "Sakura" :-) It was on NHK a few years ago and was a morning drama w/ small episodes that ran for 6 months, maybe? I don't know if there are any torrents around though. I only have about 10 eps of it on VHS.

Torrents for a NHK Asadora renzoku drama??? With English subtitles? LOL! You're never going to see them on-line. We're talking about at least 150 episodes x 15 minutes each for a typical Asadora, spanning across 26 or 27 weeks. If ANY English-subbed Asadora drama were to hit the Internet, it would have been Churasan. Call me a pessimist, but I'd rather point people in the direction of mail-trading or a mail-distro than to wait and wait for something of this size to appear on the Internet. Also, my comments may drive someone to make a total idiot out of me and and actually post a complete Asadora renzoku to the Internet. If this is what it takes, then by all means PLEASE do so. :)

Hmm... If this is the one I think, it aired here in the Bay Area several months back, but I didn't watch or capture it because my lady pretty much hated it....
I am not obsessed. I am just very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very focussed...

NO english subs of course, whether i would ever torrent them would kinda depend on how
the reponse to my main forum post will ultimately end up.

Yes, antok it did air in the Bay Area recently. But it was a very irritating show. >_<
Currently, they are airing Wakaba with e-subs.
It'll be hard to find these types of drama online. You will have better luck looking for a trader at jdorama.com or googling. :-)

On NHK right now, they're airing Kirin, which first aired in 1994. I recorded a couple of episodes this past week. It stars Hosokawa Naomi, which is the same gal that played that wacko woman in Hoshi no Kinka. Just before that, they aired Asuka which ended a week or so ago.

Back to the Asadora drama matter... I've always been a huge fan of Asadora dramas. I started a new NHK Asadora drama category on the DramaWiki, and have made it into a ring. Check it out:

Thanks for the good work groink!

In regards to torrenting the morning dramas...it's probably too much but it would be nice to see more people share them. I just got ahold of Sakura on DVD (fan captured) through a trade and might consider uploading it on ABMJ (which contrary to torrents wouldn't be that big of a deal...it would just take a while before the entire series is completed). It would be a while before I could do that though since they're currently on DVD in DVD (VOB) format so I would have to convert them all to Divx. And...I know it's another generation of ripping so the quality will be less than the current form.

Recently I FINALLY decided to purchase all of the Churasan DVDs (S1, S2, and S3) and might also consider upping them on ABMJ but they are all RAW and it probably wouldn't be worth the trouble since there are no subs (anyone want to help sub?). I know there are subbed versions floating around...but I haven't been able to get my hands on any.

Asadorama Uploads

You really enjoy 'Churasan,' don't you?

So do I. I still have my subbed copies of 'Churasan' from when it aired on TV here, and have finally completed translating Season 2 and have even managed to do a little of Season 3...

But that would definitely be a looooot of work to re-sub that whole series, and then upload it! In the immortal words of Keanu Reeves, 'Woah!"

Yep...I do. It would be a lot of work...but I would do it. I don't suppose you'd offer a trade for your subbed versions?

Man, I wish we didn't have the eBay selling problem. I have S3 on DVD with NGN subs, but I don't want to post them and give these sellers more material to sell, which is why I've avoided having the episodes escape my collection.

I like your decision groink :thumright:
The last thing anyone wants to see is your version of Churasan being sold by people like gingertoys2 and others on Ebay (they make me :x)
