    Thank you very much for giving such good information.

    Happy thanksgiving to all.

  2. Anya says:

    Thank you!

  3. HideS says:

    I’m trying to find Japanese Variety TV. Do you know of any sites?

    1. Jean says:

      I can only recommend searching at Nyaa (very little there), AvistaZ doesn’t a many Japanese variety shows, mostly Korean there.

      Various LiveJournal communities, for example those focusing on SMAP.

      Other than that try looking at different streaming sites like Miomio TV, and search using the original Japanese title.

  4. サニー says:

    Did anyone ever get around to finishing subtitles for dososei? I’ve managed to find the videos.. but can’t seem to locate subtitles anywhere…

  5. Anna says:

    13 years later… Late to the party but I wanted to thank you for the links, it was really helpful!

  6. does any one know where I can download eng subs for ep 1 of Rinsho Hanzai Gakusha Himura Hideo no Suiri: Another Story (2016)

  7. AT says:

    ttocorps.com , does that tracker shut down ?

    1. Jean says:

      Don’t know, I haven’t used it very much. I don’t know what happened with TorrentKim either.

  8. Kumakichi says:

    Looking to download buy episodes of the 2001 NHK Asadora Honma Mon: 1 through 13, 18 through 50

    1. Jean says:

      jdorama.com has a buy/trade/sell section.

  9. blackdogr says:

    Do you know the status of J-Raw website? Seems the site is gone completely now.

    1. Jean says:

      I don’t know any more than others. I think the domain has, or is about to expire.

  10. blackdogr says:

    Today I’ve seen NoSoba (NSBC) isn’t going to post on Nyaa anymore. He going to post on his bullentin now on.

    1. Jean says:

      Thank you very much for letting me know. It’s very likely I would’ve missed that announcement if you hadn’t told me.
