that was second on my list. like BT, i voted for Food Fight the week before and Heaven's Coin for this week's.

"Kimura Takuya as voice of the Crow"

still sounds pretty interesting so i can't wait until i find out what that's all about. :-)

it'll be back next week and then get the full run, this week it was added a few days later my mistake. However, not sure it would have gotten that many extra votes :unsure:

first I would like to know when the official deadline for these is?!

second, Heaven's Coin is always being re-seeded from time to time. I'd think giving a less known series a chance is a good thing, even if Food Fight will suck big time (just from what I hear)

Hmmm, the synopsis for Food Fight actually looks appealing. It could potentially be a lighthearted comedy... and with Kimura and Fukada, the choice seems so simple and obvious :roll ... hahaha, just kidding, but I am going to vote for Food Fight though.

The Kimura effect happens again...

Not to spoil anything, but KimuTaku doesn't actually make an appearance in the show...

I haven't found a single person who has found Food Fight to be "really good". Most people find it "average" or "bad".

Yeah, the "voice of the crow" kind of tipped me off that he won't really be making an appearance :roll . Doesn't matter, there's still Fukada, and to be honest, I'd rather see her than Kimura, lol. Hmmm, there's been a few posts about Food Fight, and they seem quite positive, but yeah, there wasn't really any enthusiastic recommendations (like Pride). We'll see... I'm a "hoarder-newbie" still, but the chances of me seeing this series over the others are quite slim in the near future.

PS: Hmmm, Kimura effect... nope, doesn't effect me in the least... now, the Takeuchi-effect... that would get me all the time :-)

People make mistakes...even if they don't know so. :whistling:
Besides just because it's in the lead right now, doesn't mean it will win. It's a close race. :D
So keep hoping and hopefully ppl will keep voting and prevent a travesty for some. :lol

Wow, Heaven's Coin takes the lead!

Someone back a few pages asked about how long the poll is up.

Here is is:
odino wrote:first I would like to know when the official deadline for these is?!
The poll ends 2/8/05 and the series winner starts getting seeded. ....then a new poll goes up with the runner up series of the week and any new nominations.

Even though is is a "series of the week". It really runs 2 weeks. So far, this seems to be a good thing. I wouldn't suggest 1 week or 3 weeks for the winner. 2 is just right! :party:

Wow..I still can't belive how close this is right now. HC and FF are only seperated by one vote, with FF in the lead again. Trailing in third just by a few votes is Forbidden Love. It's fun checking back to see the stats of the poll. :D

*cheers for Forbidden Love*

This seems like we are at a race track betting on horses for who's going to win, and cheering that horse on. :lol

Yeah, a "Taler" is real a old silver coin. :) Funny at all.
"Die Sterntaler" is an old fairie tale, written down by the Grimm Brothers. A nice story about a little poor girl, who gave away anything but her undershirt. In the end, the Stars fell down from heaven and where thousend of silver coins (Taler).

So I think is "Heavens Coins" a good translation, huh?

I'd have to watch the series again in detail to see if she gives everything away, including her undershirt...

:P

But yes, nice translation. I wonder if the Japanese name is from some tale/story/meaning as well? Or is that just a way to translate the Sterntaler name.
The poll ends 2/8/05 and the series winner starts getting seeded. ....then a new poll goes up with the runner up series of the week and any new nominations.
ah yes I know that, but what time zone are we speaking of, or is it just when the first mod sees this poll on the 8th?

Gosh, this race is so close. O.o And yet, it looks like Food Fight is in the lead. I'm pretty anxious, because My Husband has really been a boon for Jem's tracker, and I'd love to see it continue for another two weeks. :lol

Actually I'm quite busy (at least my internet line) at uploading all the new releases. Then there are so many willful seeders for Food Fight so I guess I can pass on this. But anyway if finally Food Fight is selected and the rest have problem to seed it for some reason (most unlikely to happen) I can still help...
