Meteor Garden | Season 1 DVDs or VCDs

I've recently just seen a few episodes of Meteor Garden and happened to develop an affinity with the storyline and certain members of F4. I suppose I'm probably a little bit late on the hype, but having finally seen it, I just can't get enough.

(For some reason, my torrents take a excruciatingly long time. Sad.)

I'm looking for English-subtitled episodes, not picky of what language it's originally in. I don't know what price range I'm willing to go into just yet, though.

If you even just happen to have a copy of the series, where did you purchase it and for how much? Where should I look?

I've been looking for the series myself (I love the manga). Try this page, unless you're set on having it in VCD/DVD format. I don't know if all the torrents work, but it's worth a short. If you end up finding any other sites to download it, please let me know.

I've gotten a few episodes from there, and still do, it just takes some time. Thanks, and I'll definitely let you know if I find anything new.

ethaicd.com seems to have the best deal online at $52, but until I get enough money, I'm going to have to depend on torrents.

Hee. You can also try IRC, about 7 other people and I are serving MG I & II complete in #japan-tv on the Chatspike server. Pretty easy to get them.

Thanks. :)
I'm not too familiar with using IRC, but I'll check it out.

you could purchase the whole series at http://www.yesasia.com and they have meteor garden 2 there too. vic ans barbie are in a newish series called mars and it's pretty good. yesasia has the whole series of that for sale too.

hope that helped!

you welcome! i'm thinking about buying them from yesasia but they don't english subs. i don't know whether you're chinese or not but yeah.

i definitely need english subtitles, so ethaicd.com is my other option.

so mars is based off of the original manga, right? i haven't read it, but i remembered associating it with having a bad boy/shy girl relationship. if it is, cool.

yups, it's based on the manga =]

are you positive that you're going to buy from ethaicd? can you do me a favor... when you buy it, can you tell me the quality of the english subs, picture quality, clarity and all that crap? i want to buy mars and meteor garden from there since it's so cheap...

i'm pretty sure i will, just not at the moment. i'm going to wait until i have more money to actually buy it.

but i first found out about that deal from this girl and she doesn't seem to have any complaints about it. ;)
