FOR SINGLE FILE DOWNLOADS:
Open the torrent file above.
Once the file is open through your torrent client, the client should ask you to save the selected files to a directory.
In this window, below you should see check marks next to file names. Merely click 'select none' then go on to click the now empty boxes (causing a check mark to appear in the box) of the single files you wish to download.
Once this is done make sure to select the directory you wish to download to and then click 'OK'.
FOR DOWNLOADING ANOTHER SINGLE FILE FROM THE SAME TORRENT ALREADY IN QUEUE
Now here is something you may not know, and may not be in any FAQ.
Once your file is done and you wish to download another file from the same torrent you need not re-download the torrent file and select the file you want to download.
1) Click on the tab in your torrent client labeled 'Files'. 2) Locate the file you wish to download, click on it to select it. 3) Right-click on the selected file and move the cursor down to 'Priority' on the short-cut menu that pops up and select 'Normal'.
This will cause your next file to begin downloading automatically. Continue doing the same until all the files you wish are downloaded.
I hope this helps those who only wish to download single episodes at a time from a single torrent file.

thank you for uploading all the episodes. I started watching it before and enjoyed it so. I'd didn't know about the episode list so I'd watch it randomly. Thanks for list. I watched all the ones that are included, When you find the ones NOT included, please notify, I haven't watched those as well. I'm interested in watching them.

Okay. Since I've found there are missing episodes from all three seasons I thought were complete season 3 is going to be released by individual episodes. For any inconvenience.
Here is a more complete listing of the Begin Japanology TV series;
Well, now I've gone and done it! Seems there are more episodes (at least 33) to season 1 than I had found before. I'll have to speak with the mods to see what I can do next. Sorry everyone.
Here are the missing episode names and dates (what I've found thus far).
> 03 04/28/08 Lacquerware > 04 05/05/08 Rakugo > 08 06/02/08 Tea Ceremony Architecture > 22 09/28/08 Oribe-yaki (pottery) > 23 10/05/08 The Colorful World of Utagawa Hiroshige > 24 10/12/08 The Seven Gods of Good Fortune > 26 10/26/08 Mikoshi (portable Shrines) > 27 11/02/08 Yuzen Kimono > 28 11/09/08 Buddhist Statues > 29 11/16/08 Hot Springs > 30 1½3/08 Fish > 31 12/01/08 Tatami (straw mats) > 33 12/15/08 Miso
Again, I apologize for this error.

Alright! I've started work on getting Season 2 torrent created. The only thing is that there are twice the number of files, the files are a little bigger cause of quality so the torrent size is 15.8 GB. I hope that's not going to be a problem.

You're welcome! I got inspired after seeing just single episodes out as well and decided to locate all seasons of 'Begin Japanology' and get them onto Avistaz as soon as possible. Look forward to season 2 coming out soon! :3
