Japanese Dramas
#2

@jadecloud88 GLAD to see Viki is bringing more Japanese Dramas & Movies FINALLY! :smile:
Hope Japanese Vikiers are still around after more than a year without muct activity in the Japanese side here. :confused:
VIKI, どうもありがとう
(VIKI, Domo arigato, “thanks a lot”) :sunglasses:


#3

These are just fan channels, though. There’s no info on them, not even a cover image.


#4

Please don’t try to get my hopes up for nothing. fan channels do not mean they will get picked up. fan channels= wishful thinking not actual new dramas. call me when VIKI themselves actually does something constructive. I have lost ALL faith in them actually keeping their promise of new jdramas and they will STILL not get any more of my money till they start doing what they promise. I have spent over a year asking and suggesting new jdramas to no effect.


#5

Funny, when you could still submit channels the channel I submitted for “Frankenstein’s Love” was forever pending until Viki deleted all pending channels because of the new system.
I highly doubt any of these channels will get a license… Would be great if they get a license but the Japanese like to keep things to themselves.


#6

@dale_seymour196220, @dudie
But if they take the trouble to put up a channel it usually means that they at least intend/hope/try to get the video.
So yes, let’s fill up those forms.
