Japanese NT 2018

Quoted from "Kakeru" @Ryu Takamiya, do you know the line up Japanese NT for the World Championships? I saw on some post online that Araki is back and also Miyu Nagaoka? After VNL, Nakada will gather almost all players and she choose the roster for Asian Championship and World championship. They will send the same roster for both competition. About Araki- Nakada didn't talk about her, but as last year, she will join the team from Asian Championship (I strongly hope so). Without her,our MB positi...

Ishikawa will miss whole the tournament. Takamatsu is always one of the top scorer among local players. Good attacking, good serving, but too weak on defense. He's not young anymore but the player who should be tried IMHO

Quoted from "ossubtus" i thought nishida is such an exciting new talent... that boy is not tall but how he can jump... he jumps like he's 2 m tall... and so explosive. i don't think otake is useless right now for JPN, what other OPP can they call up? both dekita and takahashi have transitioned to MB. i was so surprised to see fukuzawa back in the team. he was gone for many years... even more amazing is how short the other OH, asano, is (178 cm). only other short OH was ruiz from spain, same hei...

Quoted from "Kakeru" Is this the singer mika nakashima? I like her version of yuki no hana Exactly! 'Yuki no hana' is one of the Mika's best song for me Quoted from "saishuu" Quoted from "Ryu Takamiya" I'm suprised you know her name Where did you know her? I'm actually a huge Japanese music fan ever since I was a kid. lol I always see Mika's name around, although I've never listened to her music besides I don't know, GLAMOROUS SKY. I saw the news of their divorce in one of the websites I visit....

Quoted from "saishuu" Quoted from "Ryu Takamiya" Quoted from "saishuu" Did Shimizu retire from the NT? Surprised that three players are playing abroad. Quite unusual, isn't it? Sorry to be late. Shimizu had carrer-threatend injury 4 months ago and he needs more than 12 months fully recovered This reminds me of Malagurski's and Thaisa's injury... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgvUu2xCQUc I just hope he could contine his career. Damn, that's unfortunate. Getting injured (an ACL torn no less) an...

Quoted from "akitoakie" Anyway, who is his dad & sister? This is new info for me. His father Hideyuki is former NT MB(1989-1999) and famous for the tallest Japanese volleyball player our NT ever had (208cm). His old sister Riho competed 2015 World Cup Volleyball, and she was a starting MB. She had awful injury last April (probably, same injury as Nagaoka's) and missed 17-18 season. Quoted from "akitoakie" Yamauichi is my fav of the two starting MB. He seems like a warm person on court. Fuji use...

Japan NT 2018

Quoted from "akitoakie" With Nishida on the rise, Otake is no longer needed? I think his height is his advantage. I never think so, but Otake has to step up his level. His height is big advantage, but he's very slow and invisible most of the time. Actually, he is too much criticized on Japanese volleyball forum, like 'He became a national team member just because his dad (and old sister) was NT player' Quoted from "akitoakie" What happened to Ishikawa anyway? I have been waiting for the Ishikaw...

Quoted from "Kakeru" Thank you for this info Ryu.. i have watched some of Kento miyaura games during u17 asian champs last year i think, he does have a good hitting skills too, and a different way of serving . I didnt took much notice of nishida then as hes the 2nd opposite. Japan have lots of young and upcoming talents which will be useful for NT in the upcoming years to come You're welcome! https://youtu.be/eghIzsuQtNk?t=1195 Nishida (No.7) enters court from 19:50. Miyaura is also short oppos...

Quoted from "Kakeru" @Ryu Takamiya...do you know if koga is playing this last leg of VNL in poland? Just wondered as she hasnt been playing lately these past weeks. Hopefully shes not injured or something The roster for last leg will be announced tomorrow. She played last game of 3rd leg, so I don't think she's injured... I hope she will be the roster and play as starting 6.

Quoted from "Kakeru" Quoted from "Rains" I think Japan made a big mistake on introducing Nishida to the world this early. They could have made a splash in the world championship and no one will have an idea how to stop him. From what I see he should have some scouts working on figuring him out every day. True in a way, but playing now will give him vast of experience playing with the big guns and gives him some confidence he needs come world championships, and this could really help the team mo...

Quoted from "Bahkawdi" Quoted from "Ryu Takamiya" Ishikawa Must not be doing well if he can't play at home I think so Quoted from "akitoakie" No Ishiikawa? What happened to him? Any Japanese volleyball fan can explain? He has a chronic pain (Sorry, I'm not sure it's an apporopriate word) in his knees and back. I haven't ever seen such a fragile player
