I think many bottom 4 teams got better, except Toyota. Kelsie is going to have to carry a massive load.
Denso will drop some, but above the bottom four.
JT still look dominant and returning a ton of players. Toray might have a slight drop until Kurogo comes back from her break.
Hitachi I think will improve with their youngsters having an extra year.
If Toyota can improve the setter issue (set aside the libero issue) they can be competitive. Hattaya is going to be a lot of fun
This year could be full of surprises
JT's biggest advantage is they have been stable for a few years. Their players aren't that much better than any others
Toray's going down
