We know who it the best team, but we also know is the 2nd best ( JT :heart: ). The battle for the final spots in the final 6 will be awesome. It is hard to predict anything and it could come down to the final games, I think Ritache is the only one who might have no chances at this points.

I like Kitsui but seams like JT plays better without her. I still hope she recovers and gets back, I like Yuka Meguro.

Toyota got so close....I was thinking they were actually do it, but oh well....once the final 6 starts it will a different game and I don`t think Hisamtsu will go undefeated. Neriman is such warrior.

I hope the Rockets reach the finals, they were brave to go into it with a all Japanese squad.

I think this season has been great so season and the playoffs will be even better :box:

GREAT NEWS the videostream website is working again... :woohoo:

I'm not writing off Hitachi yet. Numbers are only a part of the story. They have skilled players.

It's clear that JT is the team having the most fun. That's why they are winning. Yeah, Brankica is a monster, but they look like a TEAM that is playing together. Interesting about Kitsui. I guess they brought in Megura because Kanasugi wasn't quite doing it in Kitsui's absence. We'll see how it plays out.

@sitenoise,

:D Uhm, I'm a new guy, not sure what you mean by "the formula" of the league. Like ... how will the playoffs and points be calculated? If that's it, maybe this will help:

The top six teams at the end of the regular season will advance to the Final Stage, which will run from February 10th to 28th. In the Final Stage, the team with the best record and points at the end will be given 5 points to start the round robin Final Stage. A list of the points given to the top six to start: 5,4,3,2,1,0.

In the Final Stage, only points matter, so winning in 3 or 4 sets gets you more points. The best team after the Final Stage advances directly to the final. The 2nd and 3rd placed teams will then play a two-match semifinal called the Final 3, which will be on March 3rd and 4th. In the Final 3, only match wins count, so if it tied at 1 win each, then there will be a 25 point “Golden Set,” which is different than the CEV version which only goes to 15 points.

The winner of the Final 3 advances to the Final to face the best team from the Final Stage in a 2-match final--March 10th, and 17th or 18th--with similar rules to the Final 3.

I hope Toyota makes it too. They've lost three straight, but I think they will bounce back. If you get a chance, check out the game from last night against the undefeated Hisamitsu. At least watch the 4th set. Toyota was beautiful, especially Neriman--btw, did I read somewhere that she is not returning to Turkish NT and is going to play Beach?

Here's link to the Toyota game if you want:

Toyota is down 2-1, and 22-17 in the fourth. Nobody comes back from that against Hisamitsu. But Neriman rolls her ponytail and puts her hair up. That was the game changer.

btw - to give credit, I didn't write that bit about the formula. It came from Volleymob site, written by our own @brahmin

Thanks for the info and the video link @sitenoise :heart: obviously another Toyota supporter here. I am planning to watch the 2nd part of the season since so many great players are in this league now and Japanese volleyball is already quite enjoyable.

The low quality stream is all we get from Japan. Or rather somewhere else, but that's it. You may not like it. I've watched some Turkish League matches and am jealous.

Have a look at this post. It's the schedule with scores and links to little 5 minute highlight videos of each game. Big difference. It's nice tosee what people actually look like

The main reasoning for the slow stream is that Japan is very stringent with intellectual property laws. So, we are lucky to get the ones we have. May times in the past I was watching Japanese events in a foreign language because Polsat was broadcasting or in Russian too.

On thing that @sitenoise missed is the if teams are tied on points in the Final 6, the team with the better finish in the regular season is the tiebreaker. I have taught him well, but even that one is a really minute detail that I had to go back and check to make sure I remembered that from last year.
