Japan - V.League V1 (Division 1, Women) 2019-2020

  • iishi is crying, i cant watch that 🤧😭

    Man, that was a different post game show from JT


    Toyota started crying at 12, and it went downhill from there. Heart wrenching.


    I thought Yuki Ishii was Gold. I like her temperature. The beginning of it, when she's standing there before their 'broadcast' started, all alone, nothing to do but hold back tears. I fell in love <3

  • Whoever you are, I do hope your mouth is of gold because this prediction has to happen. 8-5 are now correct. Now the rest needs to happen.

  • Just saw a video this morning of Megumi Kurihara. Here is something from the 2016-2017 board.


    It seems that Megumi Kurihara is coming back to play well after so many injuries

    Kurihara announced today that she had suffered from cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, which keeps blood from going throughout the brain. She could have actually died from it. It was caught and she had to do rehab to get back to playing shape, let alone walking.

  • I wrote last night that "Everything is as it should be". I love the way this thing turned out. The two best teams on paper and the two best teams on spirit. Gotta give JT some spirit points too, though. Such a change from last year when they would get behind and pout their way to a loss. This year they fought back. Lovely.


    It's a heavy lift, but of course I'm rooting for the underdogs :)

    everybody loves the underdogs!


    But I love me my Annie more!

  • Volleyball Magazine has this ranking. I'm wondering why they have Toyota above Toray and if this 1–12 ranking thing can even work with the Conference malfunction. Did they add in Final 8 results?


    Edit: I missed it but the V.League site also lists it as such


    Edit Edit: This must be based on Final 8 alone, I guess. It's weird that the RR is based on wins and the F8 is based on points, but whatever


    # 5: Toyota Auto Body Quincy's

    # 6:Toray East Arrows

    # 7: Hisamitsu Springs

    # 8: NEC Red Rockets

    # 9: Hitachi Rivale

    # 10: KUROBE Aqua Fairies

    # 11: PFU Blue Cats

    # 12th: Himeji Victorina

  • Reasoning is that Toyota had 6 points to Toray's 5 points in the Final 8.

    Hisamitsu finished in 7th because they had 1 win with 3 points, while NEC had 0 wins.
